© Reuters. NBA: Milwaukee Bucks at Golden State Warriors

Eric Bledsoe scored six of his game-high 26 points during a second-quarter flurry that allowed the Milwaukee Bucks to build a double-digit lead en route to a shockingly easy 134-111 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Thursday in Oakland, Calif.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 24 points and Malcolm Brogdon 20 for the Bucks, who had lost two of three after a 7-0 start.

Klay Thompson led Golden State with 24 points on a night when backcourt mate Stephen Curry missed all four of his 3-point attempts and was held to 10 points. Curry exited for good in the third quarter due to a left adductor strain, and he will undergo an MRI exam Friday.

The loss snapped Golden State's eight-game winning streak and was the Warriors' first at home this season in seven outings.

Celtics 116, Suns 109 (OT)

Kyrie Irving recorded a season-high 39 points and also had seven rebounds and six assists to help Boston rally for an overtime victory at Phoenix.

Marcus Morris added 17 points and drained the tying 3-point basket with 1.1 seconds left in regulation as Boston recovered from a 22-point, third-quarter deficit. Jaylen Brown connected on the go-ahead 3-pointer in overtime to cap a 17-point effort and Terry Rozier added 10 points.

Devin Booker scored a season-high 38 points and added nine assists and TJ Warren scored a season-high 29 points for Phoenix, which has dropped nine of its 11 games this season.

Thunder 98, Rockets 80

Paul George had 20 points and 11 rebounds as Oklahoma City won its seventh consecutive game, beating visiting Houston.

The loss snapped a three-game winning streak by the Rockets, who were led by James Harden's 19 points. However, Harden shot just 7-of-19 from the floor and 4-of-12 from behind the 3-point arc. Houston's 80-point scoring effort was the lowest for an NBA team this season.

Steven Adams added 19 points and 10 rebounds for the Thunder, while Terrance Ferguson hit four 3-pointers en route to 14 points.

Trail Blazers 116, Clippers 105

Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum combined for 48 points as Portland downed visiting Los Angeles.

Lillard scored 25 points and McCollum added 23 as the Trail Blazers earned their third consecutive win and their sixth in the past seven outings. Jusuf Nurkic contributed 16 points and nine rebounds.

Danilo Gallinari and Lou Williams (NYSE:WMB) each scored 20 points for the Clippers. Montrezl Harrell and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander both chipped in 19 points, and Tobias Harris had 15 points and 11 rebounds for the losers.
