Duncan hits milestone in Spurs victory

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.
