euters - LeBron James again led the way for Cleveland while Matthew Dellavedova was typically industrious in a 93-87 NBA win over Denver on Tuesday.
The Cavaliers went 21-9 for the season in their fourth game in five nights of a Western Conference road trip in which they won two and lost two.
James scored 34 points and Iman Shumpert had a season-high 16 while Dellavedova, starting in the absence of Kyrie Irving, only had four points but contributed seven rebounds and five assists.
Phoenix Suns coach Jeff Hornacek had earlier ripped into Dellavedova after the Cleveland Cavaliers won a 101-97 thriller in Arizona on Monday, but it was a case of mistaken identity.
Hornacek accused Dellavedova of suckering the referees into making a wrong call on Suns centre Tyson Chandler when the game was in the balance in the final minute - when the Australian was sitting on the bench.
Will Barton led the Nuggets with 29 points and Joffrey Lauvergne scored 14 as Denver lost for the sixth time in seven games.
Meanwhile, centre Marc Gasol scored a game-high 23 points - seven of them in overtime - as the Memphis Grizzlies defeated the Miami Heat 99-90 at FedExForum.
With the score tied 83-83 at the end of regulation, Memphis jumped out to an 89-83 advantage in overtime and the Heat never drew closer than three points. Gasol also had eight rebounds, six assists and four blocks.
Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant combined for 53 points and 15 assists to lead Oklahoma City to a 131-123 victory over Milwaukee at the Chesapeake Energy Arena.
Westbrook posted 27 points on 10-of-22 shooting to go along with seven rebounds and seven assists. Durant collected 26 points, six boards and eight assists to keep alive an active streak of 18 straight games with 20 or more points.
Horford and Paul Millsap posted double-doubles and Atlanta rallied from a 19-point deficit to spring past Houston 121-115 at Toyota Center.
Horford finished with 30 points and 14 rebounds while Millsap added 22 points and 14 boards plus a block of Rockets center Dwight Howard with the Hawks clinging to a 117-115 lead with 11 seconds left.
Hawks forward Kent Bazemore added 26 points on five of nine three-point shooting while Jeff Teague paired 22 points with eight assists to snap the Rockets' seven-game home winning streak.
New York ended a four-game losing streak, turning back Detroit 108-96 at Madison Square Garden.
Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony poured in 24 points, passing former Philadelphia 76er Hal Greer for 32nd place on the NBA's all-time scoring list.
