A LeBron James triple-double led a Los Angeles Lakers' late rally for his first home victory at Staples Center, 128-111, over the previously unbeaten Denver Nuggets.

Collison, Myles Turner and Domantas Sabonis added 15 points apiece, and Thaddeus Young had 10 for the Pacers, who were playing without Tyreke Evans. Blake Griffin also had 26 points while grabbing 10 boards for Detroit.

"We finally looked like ourselves again", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said.

The Cavaliers lost for a sixth consecutive time by seven points or more in their slowest start since opening 0-7 in 1995. "We just hope he can get healthy soon".

Oladipo shot 10-for-15 and Bogdanovic 10-for-14 for IN, which completed a three-game trip with consecutive wins at San Antonio and Cleveland. Kyle Kuzma scored 22 points and JaVale McGee added 21.

Sabonis made another layup and Oladipo's 3-pointer with 3:58 left pushed the lead to 113-98.

The Cavaliers are struggling to adjust without LeBron James and also missed forward Kevin Love, who was out for the second straight game because of a sore left foot. Cleveland may boast a positive attendance record of 19,432 tickets sold through two games, but that doesn't reflect how many seats were actually filled at the onset of the contest.

UP NEXTThe Celtics and Pistons square off in the second leg of their home-and-home series Tuesday night.

Tatum leads the Celtics in scoring (18.8 points per game) and rebounding (9.6).

The Cavs, along with the Oklahoma City Thunder, are winless this season. Russell Westbrook had 13 points, 15 rebounds and eight assists, but he shot 5 for 20. Detroit's offense lacked rhythm in the early going, but Stanley Johnson's 11 first-quarter points kept his team within striking distance.

The Celtics hit nine 3-pointers in the third quarter after failing to make one in the first half. He's averaging 19.0 points and 13.5 rebounds, but is shooting just 32.3 percent from the field.
