A depleted Dallas, missing Andrew Bogut, have slumped to a 105-96 loss against Portland, sending the Mavericks to their first 0-5 start in NBA franchise history.

Damian Lillard scored 27 of his season-high 42 points in the second half to lead the Trail Blazers to the 105-96 victory on Friday night (Saturday AEDT).

Mason Plumlee had 19 points and Al-Farouq Aminu added 12 points and 10 rebounds for Portland.

JJ Barea scored 23 points and Harrison Barnes had 17 for the Mavericks, who were without Bogut due to 'personal reasons' for the game and Dirk Nowitzki (sore right achilles) in the second half.

Dallas media reported the Aussie centre is expected to play against Milwaukee on Sunday (Monday AEDT), who boast exciting Australian rookie Thon Maker and point guard Matthew Dellavedova.

Continuing the Aussie theme in the NBA on Friday night, Patty Mills scored 16 points in San Antonio's 100-86 win over Utah Jazz.

Boomer Joe Ingles had seven points for the Jazz as the Spurs avenged their loss of the season to Utah on Tuesday.

Elsewhere, Kristaps Porzingis had 27 points and Carmelo Anthony added 25 to lead the New York Knicks to a 117-104 victory over the Bulls in the triumphant return of Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah to Chicago.

Rose, the Bulls' first-round draft pick in 2008, finished with 15 points and 11 assists for the Knicks, while Noah, a 2007 first-rounder, had 16 points and nine rebounds.

They teamed up to play a familiar two-man game late as New York held off a Chicago comeback.

Both Rose and Noah received loud ovations from the United Center crowd during pre-game introductions, although there were some boos mixed in for Rose.

The Chicago native also was booed every time he touched the ball in the first couple of minutes.

The Bulls played a video tribute to Rose and Noah during the first timeout.

Dwyane Wade led Chicago (3-2) with 35 points on 12-for-20 shooting and Jimmy Butler added 26 points.

In Los Angeles, the Lakers upset Golden State Warriors 117-97, with Lou Williams and Julius Randle both scoring 20 points for the home side.

Kevin Durant led all scorers with 27 and although his Warriors teammate Steph Curry managed a double-double with 13 points and 11 assists, he was 0-10 from beyond the arc.

Meanwhile, Washington edged Atlanta 95-92 to give Scott Brooks his first win as Wizards coach.

Bradley Beal led the way for the NBA franchise with 20 of his 28 points after halftime.

In other games, Toronto beat Miami 96-87, while Kemba Walker scored a season-high 30 points to help the Charlotte Hornets improved their best start in 16 years to 4-1 by beating the Brooklyn Nets 99-95.

The Los Angeles Clippers beat the Memphis Grizzlies 99-88, with Chris Paul getting 27 points and 11 assists.

The Phoenix Suns defeated New Orleans 112-111 in overtime Friday night, keeping the Pelicans winless.
