OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Serge Ibaka’s baseline jumper with less than a second remaining lifted Orlandao past Oklahoma City 119 to 117 on Sunday.
Ibaka, who was traded from the Thunder to the Magic in the offseason, scored a career-high 31 points and added nine rebounds and four blocks.
With the score tied in the final minute, Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook missed a pull-up jumper, and Orlando rebounded and called timeout with 11 seconds remaining to set up Ibaka’s winner with 0.4 seconds left.
Westbrook finished with 41 points, 16 assists and 12 rebounds for his third triple-double of the season and 40th of his career. The Thunder had won 20 straight when Westbrook tallied a triple-double.
Elfrid Payton scored 23 points and Evan Fournier added 21 for the Magic, who snapped a three-game losing streak.
CAVALIERS 100, HORNETS 93: CLEVELAND (AP) — LeBron James sparked a fourth-quarter comeback with 11 points, Channing Frye scored a season-high 20 and Cleveland beat Charlotte.

Kemba Walker scored 21 points for the Hornets, who have lost two straight after starting the season 6-1.
TIMBERWOLVES 125, LAKERS 99: MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Andrew Wiggins had a career-high 47 points, equaling the entire Lakers starting lineup to lead Minnesota.
Wiggins made 14 of 21 shots and Nemanja Bjelica added a career-high 24 points and eight rebounds for the Timberwolves, who played without starting guard Zach LaVine and reserve forward Shabazz Muhammad. Both missed the game with sore right knees.
