Portland Trail Blazers 123, Chicago Bulls 122

The shorthanded Trail Blazers led by as many as 19 but the Bulls were pulling off a furious comeback in the fourth.

Portland survive on a buzzer-beating game-winning 3 by Damian Lillard, who finished with game-high tallies off 44 points and nine assists.

Charlotte Hornets 126, Milwaukee Bucks 114

After the first 12 mins, the Rockets were down 35-27 but then outscored the Pelicans by 26 (48-22) in the second quarter to lead 75-57 at the half.

Houston never gave up that lead and went on to win their fifth straight and Christian Wood led from the front.

Miami Heat 105, Sacramento Kings 104
