There may have been only four games on the schedule on Thursday night, but there was plenty of action as Philadelphia and Boston met again, and Russell Westbrook made his return to Oklahoma City.

Cleveland Cavaliers 115, Detroit Pistons 112 - [OT]

Philadelphia 76ers 109, Boston Celtics 98


No Joel Embiid, no problem for the Philadelphia 76ers.

They outscore the Celtics 32-18 in the fourth quarter to eventually win by 11. The 76ers have now won all three contests with the Celtics this season.

Kemba Walker top-scored for the C's with 26 but four of the five starters score in double figures for the 76ers led by Josh Richardson's 29 points.

Minnesota Timberwolves 116, Portland Trail Blazers 102


Andrew Wiggins top scores with 23 (9-15 FG's) as the Minnesota Timberwolves win at home against the Blazers without their All-Star Karl-Anthony Towns. This is their fifth win in the last nine games.

Houston Rockets 92, Oklahoma City Thunder 113


For the first time since being traded to the Rockets, Russell Westbrook returned to Oklahoma City.

Westbrook would finish with 34 points on the night, but he didn't get enough help as a balanced Thunder attack helped them to a blowout 113-92 win.
