Kings 89, Heat 88
De’Aaron Fox’s rebound dunk with 3 seconds left capped a huge comeback by Sacramento, which rallied from a 12-point, fourth-quarter deficit to beat host Miami on Thursday night.
The Kings outscored the Heat 17-4 in the final 5:46, winning at Miami for the first time since 2001.
Buddy Hield scored 24 points for Sacramento, which got 14 from Fox, 11 from Bogdan Bogdanovic and 10 from Zach Randolph.
Goran Dragic scored 23 points for Miami, and he was the only Heat starter to finish in double figures. Wayne Ellington had 20 and Justise Winslow added 11 for the Heat.
Miami gave the game away in the fourth, and fell apart in the final moments.
Thunder 121, Wizards 112
Russell Westbrook scored a season-high 46 points, and host Oklahoma City beat Washington for its sixth straight victory.
Westbrook made 19 of 29 field goals in one of his most efficient shooting performances of the season. Paul George scored 18 points and Steven Adams added 12 points and 10 rebounds for Oklahoma City, which has won 20-of-28 after an 8-12 start. The Thunder shot 52 percent from the field.
Bradley Beal scored 41 points and Markieff Morris added 20 for the Wizards, who committed 23 turnovers.
The Thunder took a 54-40 lead into halftime, but Washington trimmed its deficit to a point in the third quarter before the Thunder rallied. Raymond Felton hit back-to-back 3-pointers to put the Thunder up 10, and Oklahoma City led 82-74 at the end of the period.
NOTEBOOK: Kevin Durant fined
Kevin Durant was fined $15,000 by the NBA on Thursday for his comments about referee James Williams.
Durant criticized Williams after he was ejected from Golden State’s 123-112 victory over the New York Knicks on Tuesday night. Durant apologized Wednesday, saying after watching replays that he acted like a “diva” and a “jerk.”
