(REUTERS) - J.R. Smith scored 21 points and LeBron James and Kevin Love added 17 each as Cleveland cruised to a 109-80 victory over Milwaukee at the Bradley Centre, extending their winning streak to four games.

Giannis Antetokounmpo flirted with his franchise-record sixth triple-double of the season, finishing with a team-high 22 points, 14 rebounds and eight assists, but the Bucks never had anything close to resembling a chance against the Cavaliers, who shot 54.7 per cent from the floor and made 18 of 36 three-point attempts.

The Minnesota Timberwolves stalled the Golden State Warriors' pursuit of history on Tuesday night, riding a fourth-quarter comeback and Andrew Wiggins' nine points in overtime to a shocking 124-117 victory.

Minnesota, who trailed by 15 points in the first quarter and 17 with just 18 minutes to go, held Golden State without a field goal for the final 2min 23sec of regulation, then scored the first four points of the overtime session to propel themselves to the unlikely win.

Chris Paul scored 25 points and handed out eight assists in three quarters, and the Los Angeles Clippers beat the Los Angeles Lakers for the 10th consecutive time in a 103-81 rout on Tuesday night at Staples Centre.

Paul converted 10 of 14 shots from the floor as the Clippers (49-28) captured their sixth win in seven games. Clippers forward Jeff Green delivered 21 points off the bench. None of the team's starters played in the fourth quarter, and all 13 Clippers scored.

Russell Westbrook had 13 points, 12 assists and 14 rebounds for his 17th triple-double of the season, and Oklahoma City routed Denver 124-102.

Westbrook recorded his eighth triple-double since the beginning of March and the 35th of his career. He is the first player to have 17 triple-doubles in a season since Magic Johnson did it for the Los Angeles Lakers in 1988-89.

Kawhi Leonard hit a late game-winning shot and San Antonio held off Utah 88-86.

Leonard scored 18 points, but none were more clutch than the midrange jumper he sank to beat the shot clock with four seconds remaining. Tim Duncan only had three points, but he registered his 1,000th career NBA victory.
