NEW YORK — LaMarcus Aldridge scored 19, Kawhi Leonard had 18 points and 14 rebounds and the Spurs beat the Knicks 94-84 on Monday night to give Tim Duncan a milestone victory.

Duncan had 16 points, 10 rebounds and six assists in his NBA-record 954th victory with one team. He passed Hall of Fame point guard John Stockton, who went 953-551 with the Utah Jazz. Duncan, in his 19th season, is 954-381.

Carmelo Anthony scored 19 for the Knicks but struggled to 4-of-17 shooting while often being guarded by Leonard, the defensive player of the year. Anthony was coming off a season-best 37 points on Saturday in a win at Washington.

Knicks rookie Kristaps Porzingis suffered a strained neck when Anthony appeared to land on his head while taking a shot.

Game highlights: LeBron James became the youngest player to reach 25,000 career points, leading the visiting Cavaliers past the winless 76ers 107-100. James had 22 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds and rallied the Cavs in the second half from a 15-point deficit. … Damian Lillard had 34 points and seven assists, and the visiting Trail Blazers beat Minnesota 106-101 after the Timberwolves honored late coach Flip Saunders with an emotional pregame tribute. … James Harden scored 37 and the host Rockets beat the Thunder 110-105 for their first win of the season.

Around the league: The Hornets signed guard Jeremy Lamb to a contract extension and picked up the fourth-year option on forward Cody Zeller's contract. Lamb's deal is worth $21 million over three seasons, the Associated Press reported.

Robert E. Lee. A spokeswoman for ESPN says Lee has been moved to Youngstown State's game at Pittsburgh on the ACC Network on Sept. 2. The network says the decision was made "as the tragic events in Charlottesville were unfolding, simply because of the coincidence of his name." [Associated Press]
