Trae Young was disappointed that the Atlanta Hawks let New York rally in regulation and take a big lead in the first overtime, so he repeatedly took the ball and dared the Knicks to foul him.

"When you had that lead late in the game and you feel like we should've won in regulation, and then they send it to overtime, it kills momentum," Young said. "That kind of took a lot of energy out of us, but we found a way to keep battling, keep making shots and getting stops on the defensive end."

Young had 48 points and 13 assists, John Collins added 32 points and 16 rebounds, and the Hawks beat the New York 140-135 in two overtimes on Sunday night.

It was the ninth time Young has scored at least 40 in a game, second-most in the NBA this season. The first-time All-Star hit all 16 of his free throw attempts and knocked down six 3-pointers.

JAZZ 114, ROCKETS 113: Bojan Bogdanovic made a 3-pointer as time expired to give Utah the victory. Jordan Clarkson scored 30 points and Donovan Mitchell finished with 24 points, six assists and five rebounds for the Jazz, who won their second straight after a five-game losing streak.

P.J. Tucker's 3-pointer from the corner gave Houston a two-point lead with 1.6 seconds remaining. After a timeout, Bogdanovic came off a screen and hit a contested 29-footer to give the Jazz the win. Russell Westbrook had 39 points for the Rockets. James Harden added 28 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists.

GRIZZLIES 106, WIZARDS 109: Ja Morant had 27 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds for his first career triple-double. Morant scored 10 of his points in the fourth quarter for Memphis, which closed the game on a 22-8 run after trailing for most of the second half.

CLIPPERS 133, CAVALIERS 92: Lou Williams scored 25 points and Paul George had 22 as Los Angeles routed Cleveland in the Cavaliers' worst home loss in franchise history.

76ERS 118, BULLS 111: Furkan Korkmaz scored 31 points, Joel Embiid had 28 points and 12 rebounds and Philadelphia beat Chicago to improve their NBA-best home record to 24-2. Ben Simmons added 19 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds for the 76ers.

TRAIL BLAZERS 115, HEAT 109: Damian Lillard had 33 points and eight assists while Hassan Whiteside had 11 points and 17 rebounds for Portland.

Tip-in

The Memphis Grizzlies waived former Oklahoma City Thunder guard Dion Waiters on Sunday, three days after acquiring him from Miami Heat in a three-team trade also involving Minnesota.

Waiters had been suspended three times by the Heat this season, including a 10-game ban following a drug-related incident on a team plane.
