Blazers hit back to beat Thunder

LaMarcus Aldridge had 25 points and 14 rebounds as the Portland Trail Blazers beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 98-94.

Oklahoma led 74-61 late in the third, helped by 37 points and 14 rebounds from Kevin Durant.

Roy Hibbert added 19 points for the Pacers, who outscored their opponents 26-10 in the fourth quarter.

Millsap recorded season highs in points (34) and rebounds (15), while Kyle Korver extended his NBA-record three-pointer streak to 101 games.

James Harden had 38 points and 10 rebounds but it was not enough to prevent the Houston Rockets losing 110-106 to the Sacramento Kings.

Rudy Gay scored 25 points to lead six Kings in double figures.

Brandon Knight poured in a career-high 37 points to lift the Milwaukee Bucks to a 94-79 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers.
