Kevin Durant scored a career-high 52 points, including the go-ahead basket with 16.5 seconds left in overtime, as the Thunder beat the Mavericks, 117-114, last night in Dallas.
Durant was 13-for-31 from the field and made all 21 free throws in the NBA's first 50-point game this season. Russell Westbrook scored 31 points for the Thunder and Vince Carter led the Mavericks with 29. The Mavs' O.J. Mayo forced overtime by hitting a three-pointer with two defenders in his face with 2.3 seconds left in regulation.
Bulls 100, Celtics 99: Marco Belinelli made a go-ahead jumper with 3.1 seconds left and fellow reserve Jimmy Butler scored six points in overtime for visiting Chicago. Carlos Boozer had 19 points and 20 rebounds and Joakim Noah added 14 points and 13 boards.
"I know it's a crazy shot, the fallaway," said Belinelli, who was given an ice bucket shower by teammate Taj Gibson. "The ball went in."
"It was really fun being out there with my guys. It's crazy they have me out there," said Butler, who like Belinelli played more than 20 minutes off the bench because of foul trouble.
Rajon Rondo scored 30 points for Boston before fouling out with 1:16 to play in overtime.
Grizzlies 85, Kings 69: Marc Gasol had 18 points and 10 rebounds for host Memphis.
Wizards 112, Nuggets 108: Bradley Beal scored 23 as Washington snapped an eight-game road losing streak.
Bobcats 106, Magic 100: Kemba Walker had 25 points as visiting Charlotte snapped a five-game losing streak. -- AP
