The 22-year-old now has a season average of 38.3 points a game.

It was a tighter battle between the Toronto Raptors and the San Antonio Spurs, with DeMar DeRozan’s 28 points not being enough as the Raptors lost 101-97.

The 2016 number one draft pick Ben Simmons recorded his first triple-double in his fourth NBA game as the Philadelphia 76ers got their first win of the season with a 97-86 victory against the Detroit Pistons

Nikola Jokic’s 29 points could not prevent the Denver Nuggets losing 109-104 to the Washington Wizards, who have won all three of their games this season.

Elsewhere, the Phoenix Suns’ first win of the campaign came courtesy of a 117-115 success against the Sacramento Kings while the Miami Heat earned a 104-93 victory over the Atlanta Hawks and the Memphis Grizzlies topped the Houston Rockets 98-90.
