Aussie star Patty Mills is being hailed across the basketball world after clinching a brilliant slice of history in the Brooklyn Nets' 120-96 road win over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Mills - who helped guide the Boomers to a historic Olympic Games bronze medal earlier in the year - produced another shooting masterclass to seal a stunning career and franchise first.

The Aussie came off the bench to drain a career-best nine three-pointers in what was a dominant win over the Thunder.

While Nets superstar Kevin Durant led all scorers with 33 points, Mills again provided the spark off the bench with 29 points in the big win on the road.

The Boomers guard was virtually unstoppable from beyond the arc - making nine-of-12 attempts - as he set a franchise record for three-pointers made off the bench.

The extraordinary display lit up social media, with fans praising the impact of the 33-year-old who was picked up by the Nets as a free agent before the season.

While Mills produced his best scoring performance for Brooklyn since joining them after a decade with San Antonio, fellow Australian Giddey struggled to impact the game, with the Thunder second best for most of the night.

The rookie guard finished with six points on 2-of-10 shooting and turned the ball over four times.

Oklahoma City fans booed Durant - who left the team after eight years for Golden State in 2016 - during pre-game warm-ups and whenever he touched the ball early in the game but that did little to put him off his game.

James Harden, another former Thunder star, added 16 points and 13 assists for the Nets.

For OKC, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led the way with 23 points while Lu Dort added 20 as their four-game winning streak came to an end.

In other results, Anthony Davis had 34 points and 15 rebounds to lead the Los Angeles Lakers past the San Antonio Spurs 114-106.

The Lakers improved to 3-3 since LeBron James was sidelined November 4 because of an abdominal strain.

Trae Young scored a season-best 42 points as the Atlanta Hawks snapped a six-game losing streak by beating the Milwaukee Bucks 121-110 in an Eastern Conference final rematch.

Meanwhile, the Chrlotte Hornets ended the winning streak of the Golden State Warriors at seven with a 106-102 home win and the Phoenix Suns cruised past the Houston Rockets 115-89.
