Millsap's putback gives Nuggets 108-107 win over Bulls in OT

No question Golden State's coach is getting a thrill watching No. 30's hot hand - as in 52.9 percent from 3-point range through nine games.

In overtime, Justin Holiday's three-pointer gave the Bulls a one-point lead, but Millsap's tip-in off a miss by Nikola Jokic dropped the Bulls to 2-6.

Curry set the mark against New Orleans in 2016 but that quickly disappeared into Thompson's rearview mirror as he went on to bigger and better things, shattering the historic number with more than a quarter to go. With the shot clock off, New Orleans didn't foul and D'Angelo Russell threw out of bounds with 7.5 seconds remaining.

He surpassed his previous season scoring high when he buried a 3 off the dribble with just under three minutes left in the quarter, giving him 22 points and the Warriors a 36-21 edge.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 15 points and 12 rebounds in just 23 minutes, Ersan Ilyasova added 16 points off the bench as Milwaukee beat Minnesota 125-95. Phoenix scored 107 in the first half of a 173-143 victory over Denver in 1990. They finished with a season-high 39 assists.

Thon Maker grabbed eight points and four rebounds for the Bucks while fellow Australian Matthew Dellavedova, returning from illness, contributed six points.




Bulls: Host the Indiana Pacers on Friday night.

Two-time defending champion Golden State's lone loss came in the third game of the season by two points at Denver on October 21.

Zach LaVine scored 28 points on 11-for-24 shooting to pace the Bulls.

Thompson was undeniably efficient last night with only 29 field goals attempted but that just barely puts him in the top 100 of fewest shot attempts in a 50+ point game.

The Clippers, whose lacklustre start offensively was covered by their stellar defence, thrived on offence against the injury-depleted Rockets, who were without starters James Harden and James Ennis and remained winless at home.

In this article, let us take a look at three talking points from this game at the United Center. However, everyone should be thrilled that Thompson's shooting woes are finally gone. Washington lost its fourth of five games.
