Thunder's 4th quarter rally

In front of their home fans, the Brooklyn Nets were in complete control of the contest against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

A two-point lead after one was stretched out to a 16 point advantage at the half. The Nets then went into the fourth with an 18 point buffer.

All this despite a triple-double from Russell Westbrook and 22 points from Paul George.

Then the momentum shifted in the fourth quarter as George went to another level.

Carrying the Thunder all the way back into the contest, George knocked down the enormous final three of the game to hand his team the win.

In total, the Nets had 19 points in the final frame, George ended it with 25 points alone ... giving him 47 for the night.

Curry shoots the lights out in Cleveland

One of the games greatest shooters produced some more magic on Wednesday as he returned to Cleveland.

An NBA Finals rematch didn't quite have the same feel, but Curry added the necessary spice to the clash.

The two-time MVP proved unstoppable as he continually torched the Cavs defenders from all over the floor.

Curry ended the contest with a huge line of 42 points, nine rebounds and seven assists. His 42 included an absurd nine threes.

Despite the Warriors not looking anywhere near their best, they cruised to the 24 point victory.

Beal carries Wizards to big-time W

No John Wall, no Dwight Howard ... no problems for the Washington Wizards.

With Bradley Beal leading the way, the Wizards made light work of the Hawks as they jumped out to the 23 point halftime lead.

Running the offence, Beal was at his dominant best as he continually picked apart the Hawks' defence.

The guard ended the night with a stuffed stat sheet of 36 points, six rebounds and nine assists.

Their road trip will continue with a clash in Cleveland against the Cavaliers on Sunday.
