Preseason: Brewer, Nuggets beat Spurs
Tied at 45 after the first half, the Nuggets went on a 10-0 run in the opening minutes of the third quarter to capture a 57-47 lead. McGee had a pair of one-handed dunks and blocked a layup attempt by Boris Diaw in the run.
The Spurs emptied their bench with 4 minutes left in the third quarter.
Reserve Perry Jones had 14 points for Oklahoma City, which was without key players because of injury and did not play point guard Russell Westbrook.
Thunder forward Kevin Durant played 19 minutes and finished with nine points, three assists, two rebounds and a blocked shot.
The game was a chance for both teams to look at young players. Fifteen Jazz players had played by halftime.
The Jazz got off to a fast start behind two of their new additions, with Mo Williams scoring 10 first-quarter points and Marvin Williams adding eight as Utah took command early.
Al-Farouq Aminu led the Hornets (3-1) with 15 points and Robin Lopez added 11 points and eight rebounds. Greivis Vasquez and Darius Miller each had 10 points and Austin Rivers added seven points. First overall pick Anthony Davis did not dress.
Jeremy Lin put the Rockets up 15 at 64-49 with two free throws with 4:32 left in the third after being fouled hard by Lopez on a drive to the basket. The foul was initially ruled a flagrant but turned to a regular foul after the officials reviewed the play.
Lin was subbed out of the game shortly thereafter with nine points on 2 of 6 shooting and seven assists in 23 minutes.
Houston used a 9-2 run before the half to take a 48-41 lead at halftime capped by Parsons' dunk. The Rockets outscored the Hornets 22-10 in the third quarter to up the lead to 70-51. Martin led the Rockets with eight points in the quarter, including two three-pointers.
The Cavaliers took the lead 16-15 at the end of the first quarter and never gave it up.
Trailing 50-29 at the half, the Bulls opened the third quarter with a 15-0 run. The Bulls outscored the Cavaliers 32-13 in the quarter, closing the gap to 63-61.
The Bulls played without star point guard Derrick Rose, recovering from surgery on his torn ACL during the 2012 playoffs.
Tyler Zeller scored 10 points for the Cavaliers, while Omri Casspi, C.J. Miles and Luke Harangody got nine each. Kirk Hinrich scored 14 points, had eight assists and grabbed four rebounds for the Bulls.
Raptors rookie Jonas Valanciunas had 11 points and eight rebounds, and scored on a key possession with less than a minute to play, in his second NBA game.
Valanciunas, whom the Raptors selected with their No. 5 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, is considered a huge piece of the franchise's future. He put in an energetic 30 minutes, banging with Detroit's big men under the glass. On one play late in the first quarter, the rookie did a nice job of driving to the hoop and drawing a foul for a three-point play.
Rodney Stuckey led the Pistons with 14 points.
The Pacers (1-1) shot 27.3 percent from the field in the second quarter and fell behind 53-42 at the half. A 13-2 run in the third cut the gap. A 19-0 fourth quarter run put the Wolves in a 10-point hole they couldn't recover from. Pacers forward Gerald Green scored 18 while Ben Hansbrough chipped in 10 points and seven assists.
