The Charlotte Bobcats pipped the Detroit Pistons in a thriller, while the Miami Heat thumped the Washington Wizards in the NBA on Sunday.
Kemba Walker posted 20 points and seven assists as the Bobcats accounted for Detroit 108-101 in overtime for just their second win in 21 games.
Walker scored on a driving layup with 7.8 seconds to go in the final quarter to level proceedings at 96-96 and send the game into overtime.
Tyrus Thomas and Walker then added four points apiece for Charlotte in the extra period to seal the unlikely road victory.
Ben Gordon scored 18 points for Charlotte, while Ramon Sessions had 15 points and Bismack Biyombo chipped in with 10 points and 16 rebounds.
Tayshaun Prince led the Pistons with 21 points, while Greg Monroe also proved valuable with 18 points, 14 rebounds and six assists.
Meanwhile, LeBron James had 24 points and seven assists as the Heat bounced back from Friday's loss to the Chicago Bulls with a 99-71 win over the visiting Wizards.
Ray Allen added 20 points off the bench for Miami, who scored 21 points and kept Washington scoreless in the final seven minutes.
"I really don't believe the score was indicative of how competitive it was," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said.
"Washington was keeping it pretty tight for a while but for the most part, coming off our last game, it's good to bounce back with this."
Elsewhere, Kobe Bryant scored 29 points and Dwight Howard had 26, though their efforts were in vain as the Los Angeles Lakers went down to the visiting Denver Nuggets 112-105.
Russell Westbrook had 23 points and seven assists as the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Toronto Raptors 104-92 away from home.
Finally, Zach Randolph had 21 points to guide the Memphis Grizzlies to a 92-81 road win over the Phoenix Suns.
