TORONTO — Kyrie Irving had 26 points and LeBron James scored 21, helping the Cleveland Cavaliers hold off DeMar DeRozan and the Toronto Raptors for a 94-91 victory on Friday night.

DeRozan had 32 points for Toronto in the first of four games scheduled between last season’s Eastern Conference finalists. Cleveland beat Toronto in six games on its way to winning the franchise’s first NBA title.

Kevin Love had 18 points and 10 rebounds for the Cavs.

THUNDER 113, SUNS 110: Russell Westbrook had 51 points and a triple-double and scored the winning points in Oklahoma City’s win at home.

According to the Thunder, it was the first 50-point triple-double since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar had one in 1975. Westbrook finished with 13 rebounds and 10 assists and took a career-high 44 shots.

NETS 103, PACERS 94: Jeremy Lin had 21 points and just missed a triple-double in his Nets home debut, Brook Lopez scored 25 as Brooklyn got its first victory.

Lin finished with nine rebounds and nine assists, drawing some delirious cheers the way he briefly did during his run of Linsanity last time he played in New York, with the Knicks in 2012.

Sean Kilpatrick hit consecutive 3-pointers during the decisive fourth-quarter surge as the Nets gave new coach Kenny Atkinson his first victory, not far from where the Northport native grew up.

PISTONS 108, MAGIC 82: Andre Drummond had 12 points and 20 rebounds, helping Detroit rout Orlando in what might have been the final home opener for the Pistons at The Palace of Auburn Hills.

Pistons owner Tom Gores confirmed before the game the team is close on a deal to move downtown next season.

Tobias Harris scored 18 points for the Pistons, and Marcus Morris added 17. Ish Smith had 16 points and eight assists.

ROCKETS 106, MAVERICKS 98: Trevor Ariza scored 27 points and James Harden had 26 as Houston beat Dallas with Dirk Nowitzki missing from the Mavericks’ home opener.

Nowitzki didn’t play for just the second time in 19 home openers with Dallas, stricken with a stomach virus.

HORNETS 97, HEAT 91: Kemba Walker scored 24 points to lead six Charlotte players in double figures and the Hornets erased a 19-point deficit in the second half to beat host Miami.

Jeremy Lamb scored 16 points for the Hornets.
