Thunder roll over Warriors in overtime, Bucks outlast Mavs
LOS ANGELES, United States -- Oklahoma City's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Chet Holmgren combined for 76 points Saturday as the Thunder erased an 18-point deficit to beat Golden State 130-123 in overtime, handing the Warriors a sixth straight NBA defeat.
Gilgeous-Alexander scored 10 of his 40 points in overtime and rookie Holmgren's 36 points included a turnaround three-pointer with seven-tenths of a second left in regulation to force the extra session.
Andrew Wiggins had put Golden State up 117-114 with a three-pointer with 3.1 seconds left, but Holmgren responded and the Thunder out-scored the Warriors 13-6 in overtime.
Wiggins scored a season-high 31 points and Stephen Curry added 25 in his return from a strained right knee.
With Draymond Green still serving his five-game suspension for a choke-hold on Minnesota's Rudy Gobert, the Warriors fell to 1-6 at home.
The contest was part of a pulsating night of NBA action. Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 40 points and the Milwaukee Bucks used a massive 43-point fourth quarter to finally put away the Dallas Mavericks 132-125.
The Miami Heat's seven-game winning streak came to an end with an agonizing 102-97 loss to the Chicago Bulls, and San Antonio's losing streak stretched to eight games despite another big night from Victor Wembanyama. The Spurs again squandered a big lead in a 120-108 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies.
In Milwaukee, the Bucks were pushed to the limit by a Mavs team trying to wrest the Western Conference lead from the Denver Nuggets.
Instead it was the Minnesota Timberwolves joining Denver atop the conference after a 121-120 come-from-behind victory over the New Orleans Pelicans.
A back-and-forth first half that saw the Bucks lead by as many as 11 and the Mavs by as many as five, ended with Milwaukee up 60-58.
Dallas star Kyrie Irving scored 18 of his 39 points in the Mavs' 40-point third quarter, but Milwaukee responded in the final frame.
Down by 10 with 9:04 remaining, the Bucks authored a 15-4 scoring run to take the lead, Antetokounmpo driving for a layup and draining a pair of free-throws to cap the run.
Damian Lillard, fouled by Irving on a three-pointer with 4:34 remaining, made all three of the
