Oladipo returns to NBA as Pacers nip Bulls

Victor Oladipo has made a triumphant return in a winning side for Indiana after a year's absence

Victor Oladipo's only 3-pointer tied the scores with 10 seconds left in regulation on his return from a long-term injury before as the Indiana Pacers rallied for a 115-106 NBA victory over Chicago.

Oladipo had nine points in his first game back since suffering a season-ending knee injury last January.

T.J. Warren had 25 points to lead the Pacers, who have won eight of their last 10.

Chandler Hutchinson finished with a career-high 21 points, while Zach LaVine added 20 for Chicago, which lost their eighth straight in the series.

Clearly, Oladipo was rusty on Wednesday. He was 2 of 8 from the field and 1 of 7 on 3s in 21 minutes, though he nailed the one that counted.

The Bulls led by as many as seven down the stretch but were held scoreless over the final 4:11 of regulation and managed just six points in overtime.

Spencer Dinwiddie scored 28 points in his first game with his new jersey number and Kyrie Irving returned to the line-up to score 20 as Brooklyn beat Detroit 125-115.

Irving didn't play on Sunday after learning of Kobe Bryant's death, and Dinwiddie, a Los Angeles native, was in tears after the game talking about what the Lakers star meant to him.

Dinwiddie changed his number from No.8, one of the numbers Bryant wore, to No.26.

Reggie Jackson scored 23 points during one the best games of his injury-plagued season and Derrick Rose had 22 for the Pistons, who have lost four straight.

In New York, Dillon Brooks scored 27 points as Memphis cruised to their fourth straight victory, beating New York 127-106.

Jonas Valenciunas had 12 points and 13 rebounds for the Grizzlies, who have won 11 of their last 13 games.

The victory put Memphis at .500 (24-24) for the first time in almost 13 months.

DeMar DeRozan scored a season-high 38 points to enable San Antonio to snapped a three-game losing streak with a 127-120 win over Utah.

DeRozan was 11-for-19 shooting, surpassing 1,000 points for the 10th straight season while Australia's Patty Mills had 18 points for the Spurs.

Damian Lillard recorded 36 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds for his first career triple-double to spearhead Portland to a 125-112 victory over Houston.

Lillard made six 3-pointers to tie the NBA record of 33 over a four-game stretch. The mark was originally set by Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors in 2016.

Oklahoma beat Sacramento 120-100 to round out the schedule.
