Thunder 117 (36-19), Rockets 112 (32-23)

Thanks to a 42-point second quarter, Houston was able to rip open a 26-point second-quarter lead. But OKC would return the favor with a 42-point quarter of their own in the third.

Paul George went off for a game-high 45 points (on 22 shots) with 11 boards and 3 dimes.

Magic 103 (24-32), Bucks 83 (41-14)

Without Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee soreness), Milwaukee had arguably their worst performance of the season. They were outscored in every quarter, and shot a miserable 32.6 percent overall and 17.1 percent from three.

Nikola Vucevic once again led the way for the Magic, scoring 15 points with 17 boards and 5 assists.
