Anthony Davis scored 34 points and grabbed 23 rebounds as the visiting Los Angeles Lakers pulled off a 128-124 double-overtime victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday after trailing by 10 points with 3:26 remaining in regulation.

Los Angeles' Austin Reaves amassed 29 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists, and he hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 38.6 seconds remaining in the second overtime. D'Angelo Russell added 29 points and 12 assists for the Lakers.

Giannis Antetokounmpo delivered a triple-double with 29 points, 21 rebounds and 11 assists for the Bucks. However, he missed two free throws with 24.2 seconds remaining in the second overtime after Reaves made his 3-pointer that gave Los Angeles a 124-121 lead.

Milwaukee's Damian Lillard amassed 27 points and eight assists. The Lakers were down 94-75 with 8:25 remaining in regulation before they began their comeback.

Warriors 113, Heat 92

Klay Thompson scored 28 points on 11-of-20 shooting and Golden State delivered one of its best defensive performances of the season en route to a win over host Miami.

The Warriors, who came into Tuesday's contest on a two-game skid, led much of the way and took control in the fourth quarter. Golden State held the Heat to just 6-of-22 shooting in the period, growing its lead to 22 points in the process.

Bam Adebayo scored a team-high 24 points on 10-of-21 shooting for Miami, and Haywood Highsmith added 15 points off the bench. Jonathan Kuminga chipped in 18 points for the Warriors.

Thunder 119, Pelicans 112

Jalen Williams scored 26 points and visiting Oklahoma City used a balanced scoring effort to defeat New Orleans.

The Thunder scored the final 12 points of the game over the last three minutes to escape with a victory. Josh Giddey added a season-high 25 points, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 24 and Chet Holmgren had 16 for the Thunder, who won for the fifth time in six games.

Zion Williamson had 29 points and 10 assists, CJ McCollum scored 23 points and Trey Murphy III and Herbert Jones supplied 16 apiece for the Pelicans.

Mavericks 132, Kings 96

Luka Doncic scored 26 of his 28 points in the first half, Kyrie Irving had 18 of his 24 over the final two periods and Dallas rode the tag-team effort of their star guards in a shellacking of host Sacramento.

P.J. Washington put up 14 points and a game-high 13 rebounds while Tim Hardaway Jr. chipped in with 22 points off the bench for the Mavericks, who won their fifth in a row, including their second straight to open a five-game trip.

Domantas Sabonis had 12 points, a team-high 11 rebounds and a game-high nine assists for the Kings, who get a rematch with the Mavericks -- again in Sacramento -- on Friday night.
