The Spurs were expected to fade behind the Golden State Warriors, but through four games, they have the best record in the NBA. Meanwhile, Russell Westbrook is on pace for 55 triple-doubles this season. Here's a roundup for Sunday, October 30, 2016.

Los Angeles Clippers 88, Utah Jazz 75

This game ended up being a defensive showcase, with the Jazz showing how much they miss Gordon Hayward, who has missed the start of the season with a broken finger. While there wasn't much offense, Clipper Blake Griffin did surpass Corey Maggette for fourth-place on the all-time franchise scoring list.

Golden State Warriors 106, Phoenix Suns 100

The Suns managed to put a significant scare into the Warriors, led by strong play in the first half from Eric "Beldsoe" (his name was misspelled for a portion of the game). In the end, though, Kevin Durant clamped down on the offensive end and Draymond Green clamped down on the defensive end to secure the win in their new 'crossover' uniforms.

San Antonio Spurs 106, Miami Heat 99

With the win, the Spurs secured the best record in the NBA at 4-0 so far. Star Kawhi Leonard received a cut under his eye, but came back in the game with a bandage to lead a hectic fourth-quarter scoring frenzy. He now has the most wins through 300 starts in NBA history.

Detroit Pistons 98, Milwaukee Bucks 83

Pistons center Andre Drummond had one of his patented 20-20 games, scoring 20 while bringing down 23 rebounds in the win, which included eight offensive rebounds. Bucks forward Greg Monroe only scored 11 points against his former team.

Oklahoma City Thunder 113, Los Angeles Lakers 96

Russell Westbrook recorded his second triple-double of the season, scoring 33 points with 16 assists and 12 rebounds in the win. He's only the fourth NBA player to record two triple-doubles in the first three games of the season, joining Magic Johnson, Oscar Robertson, and Jerry Lucas.

Lakers rookie Brandon Ingram assuaged concerns about his knee by playing significant minutes.

Memphis Grizzlies 112, Washington Wizards 103 (OT)

Marc Gasol never recorded more than three three-pointers in a season. On Sunday, he had four alone, including one to send the game into overtime and two to secure the win in the extra period. The Grizzlies are an aging team, but if Gasol has a new element to his game, Memphis may be relevant once again this season.

Houston Rockets 93, Dallas Mavericks 92

James Harden won the game for the Rockets at the free throw line with 0.1 seconds left on the clock. Sam Dekker received some rare extended play and went 3 of 3 behind the three-point arc. Dallas is still looking for their first win of the season.
