Lillard and Batum lead the charge against Knicks.
It was another memorable night for the Portland Trail Blazers and San Antonio Spurs on Monday, with both teams extending their winning streaks to 11 games.
The Blazers were involved in the late game of the night, as they welcomed the struggling New York Knicks to the Moda Center.
Despite 34 points and 15 rebounds from Carmelo Anthony, the visitors were unable to recover from a 34-18 deficit after the first quarter, and slumped to 3-10 for the season along with city rivals the Brooklyn Nets.
Coach Mike Woodson is understood to be under immense pressure to turn things around as the Knicks had entered the season with title aspirations, but it is Portland who looked like the more accomplished of the two teams on Monday.
Elsewhere, the Spurs were also in fine form as they secured a 112-93 win over the New Orleans Pelicans.
As ever, Gregg Popovich was able to rely on his bench to do some additional damage whilst also affording his veterans and key players some rest in what will undoubtedly turn out to be a gruelling season ahead.
While Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Kawhi Leonard all played 25 minutes or less, Manu Ginobili (16 points), Marco Belinelli (14 points) and Boris Diaw (13 points) all came off the bench to ease the hosts to victory.
Meanwhile, in the Eastern Conference, the Indiana Pacers and Miami Heat continue to lead the way after comfortable wins over the Minnesota Timberwolves and Phoenix Suns respectively.
LeBron James and Paul George had stand-out nights, with the former dropping 35 points en route to sealing an eighth home win of the season for the reigning champions, while George matched George Hill’s 26 points to take Indiana to 13-1 for the season.
The other notable game of the night saw the Chicago Bulls continue to struggle as they slipped to the Utah Jazz, the team with the worst record in the West so far this season.
With the shock of Derrick Rose’s season-ending injury still fresh in the minds of the players, they were unable to lift spirits and fell to a 89-83 loss in overtime.
Chicago have now lost four games in a row, are 6-7 for the season and have now lost seven of their eight road games thus far amid growing debate over what they should do with their roster moving forward.
Boston Celtics 98-86 Charlotte Bobcats
Minnesota Timberwolves 84-98 Indiana Pacers

Phoenix Suns 92-107 Miami Heat
Houston Rockets 93-86 Memphis Grizzlies
Denver Nuggets 110-96 Dallas Mavericks
New Orleans Pelicans 93-112 San Antonio Spurs
