MILWAUKEE — Paul George scored 20 points Tuesday night and the Oklahoma City Thunder dominated the paint during a 16-0 run to take control early in a 110-91 victory against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Russell Westbrook had 12 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists, and Carmelo Anthony scored eight of his 17 points in the pivotal first quarter.

Oklahoma City went from four down to a 20-8 lead on George’s jumper with 4:16 left in the first. It was essentially over from there, especially with the way Westbrook kept finding driving lanes.

Westbrook dished off to Steven Adams in the paint when he wasn’t taking it to the hoop himself. Adams finished with 14 points and 11 rebounds. Reserve Jerami Grant added 17 points for the Thunder.

Giannis Antetokounmpo of Milwaukee had 28 points on 9-of-14 shooting but spent much of the first quarter on the bench with two fouls, and the Bucks struggled from the 3-point line, opening 1 of 14.

No other Buck scored in double figures.

PACERS 101, KINGS 83: Bojan Bogdanovic scored 17 points to lead a balanced offense for Indiana at Indianapolis.

SUNS 122, NETS 114: Devin Booker scored 32 points, Mike James added 24 and Phoenix Suns in the fourth quarter at New York.

T.J. Warren scored 14 of his 20 points in the final period for the Suns, who squandered an 18-point lead in the third quarter when Brooklyn went on a 17-0 run. Phoenix seemed out of it after Ronda Hollis-Jefferson’s basket gave Brooklyn a 106-98 lead with 6:35 left.

But the Suns, who lost a tough one Saturday at Portland, quickly answered with a 24-8 run for their first win on their five-game trip.

D’Angelo Russell scored 33 points and Hollis-Jefferson had 21 for the Nets, who have lost three straight after beating Cleveland last Wednesday at home.
