A simple back-door cut is never simple when it's Russell Westbrook on the receiving end.

"It's very satisfying when the bench comes in and we don't retreat, we don't have any lapses", Thunder forward Patrick Patterson said. It was a sloppy game from the start, but we came out in the second half with a different thought process.

"Russell Westbrook, the MVP of the league, got going in the third quarter", he said.

With the score tied at 85 midway through the fourth quarter, Vucevic made a short basket, a three-point play and a three-point shot in succession to give the Magic the lead for good.

It didn't look good there for a while, but the Thunder overcame a 17-point deficit to take home a 100-94 victory against the Jazz.

Paul George had one of his best games in a Thunder uniform, scoring 21 points. "And I think it's just a matter of these guys seeing what our formula is of how we have to play".

"I thought it was a great win, considering the way we played in the first half", said OKC coach Billy Donovan. The Jazz were sinking shots and playing aggressive defense as they built up a 17-point lead against the Thunder and appeared to be on their way to their seventh straight win of the season.

Washington Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal torched the Portland Trail Blazers for 51 points on 21-of-37 shooting, recording the most points ever scored at the Moda Center for a single game. Adams was 9 of 10 from the floor and also grabbed nine rebounds. Steven Adams added 20 markers and Carmelo Anthony posted 14 points in the win. "We stuck together through adversity and came out and got it done in the fourth". "It just felt we weren't going to lose that game the way he impacted that stretch". Anthony made a clear, intentional effort to make extra passes and resist low efficiency non-paint jumpers. "The offensive rebounds are killers".

The Jazz had another terrific performance from Mitchell, who has been on fire lately, as he finished with a game-high 31 points on 11-of-22 shooting, including 5 of 12 from 3-point range and four assists and five steals. Anthony scored the next time down the floor and Oklahoma City led 90-87.

That was all the Thunder needed to close out the Jazz.

Mitchell turned the ball over again on the ensuing possession, and this time it was Anthony finishing on the other end, taking a feed from Westbrook and hitting a step-back jumper to extend the lead.

After a dreadfully slow start, Oklahoma City (11-12) has now won three straight games - all against playoff contenders.

NOTES: Jazz PG Raul Neto, a night after returning from two games out with an injury, missed the game due to right foot soreness. Rivers' final three-pointer gave LA a 92-91 lead with 6:54 to play before Butler scored nine in a row to send the Clippers to their third straight loss.

It's a small, three-game night in the National Basketball Association on Tuesday, but plenty of top teams and players will be in action. He scored 11 points in the quarter.
