Giddey scores 25, leads Thunder to 124-110 win over Bulls

Josh Giddey matched a season high with 25 points and added 10 rebounds, helping the visiting Oklahoma City Thunder to a 124-110 win over the Chicago Bulls on Friday night.

Rookie Jalen Williams scored 22 points and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander added 21 for the Thunder, who have won two straight, four of five and completed a sweep of their season series against Chicago.

Zach LaVine scored 25 points and Nikola Vucevic had 19 points and 11 rebounds as the Bulls lost their third straight. Leading scorer DeMar DeRozan missed a second straight game due to a quadriceps injury suffered in Monday’s loss at Boston.

The Bulls trailed by 18 points early in the second half before going on an 18-5 run and closing within 91-90 by the end of the third period. Chicago never did overtake Oklahoma City, which got consecutive baskets off Chicago turnovers to push the lead to 104-94 midway through the final period. The Bulls never got closer than eight points the rest of the way.

Timberwolves 121, Suns 116:
Anthony Edwards scored 31 points, D’Angelo Russell had 17 and host Minnesota held off short-handed Phoenix. The Suns were again without stars Chris Paul and Devin Booker, along with Cameron Johnson and backcourt backups Cameron Payne and Landry Shamet.

Hawks 113, Pacers 111:
John Collins tipped in a missed shot with less than a second left to give visiting Atlanta a win over Indiana. Trae Young scored 26 points and De’Andre Hunter had 25 for the Hawks. Hunter’s six 3-pointers were a career-high. The Hawks made 16 of 31 3-pointers overall.

Knicks 112, Wizards 108:
Jalen Brunson scored 34 points, two on free throws with 13.9 seconds left, and visiting New York held off a Washington rally. Julius Randle had 23 points and 16 rebounds for the Knicks, who won for the sixth time in seven games.
