Oklahoma City Thunder v Charlotte Hornets

Oklahoma City Thunder scored a dramatic overtime victory against Portland Trail Blazers in a potential play-off preview.

The 129-121 win saw the Thunder sweep their season series with Portland, and move ahead of them and the Houston Rockets for third place in the Western Conference.

The end of regulation time saw Jusuf Nurkic receive his second technical foul before Al-Farouq Aminu tied the game following a loose ball foul against the Thunder.

Despite a season-high 51 points from Portland’s Damian Lillard, it was the Thunder who emerged victorious, with Russell Westbrook and Paul George combining for 69 points.

The Milwaukee Bucks were back to their winning ways, recovering from back-to-back losses to beat the Indiana Pacers 117-98.

A 13-0 run in the third quarter quarter put Milwaukee firmly in control, and they pulled away in the fourth.

Khris Middleton, who finished on 27 points, held off any hopes of an Indiana comeback with a four-point play at 5:45 remaining.

Giannis Antetokounmpo led the way on 29 points and 12 rebounds.
