NBA
Chicago 109, Dallas 107
Coby White scored 19 points, Otto Porter Jr. added 18 in his return from a broken left foot and the Bulls hung on to beat the Dallas Mavericks 109-107 when Luka Doncic’s desperation heave bounced off the rim. Denzel Valentine added a season-high 17 points and the Bulls won for just the second time in 12 games even though leading scorer Zach LaVine sat out with a strained left quadriceps. Tim Hardaway Jr. led Dallas with 26 points. Doncic scored 23 after sitting out Sunday’s win at Minnesota because of a sprained left thumb.

Indiana 116, San Antonio 111
Malcolm Brogdon scored 26 points, T.J. Warren added 23 and the Pacers rallied to beat the San Antonio Spurs 116-111. Indiana led by 15 points in the third quarter before falling behind 102-98 midway through the fourth. The Pacers won their fourth straight, moving into a fifth-place tie with Philadelphia in the Eastern Conference. Patty Mills scored 24 points to lead San Antonio and Trey Lyles added 20. The Spurs have lost eight of 11. They dropped four games behind the Memphis Grizzlies for eighth place in the West.

NHL
Colorado 2, Detroit 1
Gabriel Landeskog withstood a crunching hit while making a pass that sprung Logan O’Connor for a breakaway goal in the second period, and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Red Wings 2-1 for their seventh straight victory. Vladislav Namestnikov also scored for the Avalanche, who extended a franchise record with their ninth consecutive road win. Anthony Mantha had the only goal for Detroit. With the score tied at 1, Landeskog was just inside his own blue line when he took a hit from Detroit’s Robby Fabbri.
