The Knicks remained the NBA's only unbeaten team and gave them their first 5-0 start since opening the 1993-94 season with seven wins.
BOBCATS 92, WIZARDS 76
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Ramon Sessions scored 21 points and Charlotte beat winless Washington to get back-to-back victories for the first time since last December.
Rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist chipped in with 15 points and eight rebounds before leaving in the fourth quarter to ice down a sore back. Kemba Walker battled inconsistent shooting but finished with 17 points for the Bobcats (3-3).
It marked the first time the Bobcats have won two straight since taking the final game of the 2010-11 season and the first of last season.
Trevor Ariza scored 19 points for the Wizards, who fell to 0-6.
The Bobcats (3-3) limited the Wizards to 29.8 percent shooting and outscored them 46-24 in the paint.
RAPTORS 74, PACERS 72
DeRozan and Calderon each had 10 points in the first half for the Raptors, who had a franchise-low five points in the fourth quarter. Toronto led 69-58 heading into the fourth and hit only one field goal the rest of the way, also a franchise low record.
Indiana went on a 9-0 run in the fourth and pulled to 74-72 with 1:02 left in the game. Neither team scored again.
NETS 114, CAVALIERS 101
Brook Lopez added 23 points for the Nets, who opened a 20-point lead at home for the third straight game, but this time barely let up and beat the Cavaliers for the sixth time in eight meetings after losing nine in a row, mostly during the LeBron James era.
Anderson Varejao scored a career-high 35 points and grabbed 18 rebounds for the Cavaliers, who were wrapping up a six-game, coast-to-coast trip and played much of the game with the urgency of a team that wanted to be home.
They haven't played there since Nov. 2, their second game of the season, and dropped the final four games of the trip to finish 1-5.
