Magic 122, Wizards 101

WASH­ING­TON — D.J. Au­gustin scored a sea­son-high 25 points, Ni­cola Vuce­vic added 20 points and 12 re­bounds and Or­lando snapped a four-game road los­ing streak.

Bradley Beal, who missed the pre­vi­ous two games with sore­ness in his right leg, led Wash­ing­ton with 27 points.

The Magic, who en­tered the game with the NBA’s poor­est of­fense, took the lead mid­way through the sec­ond quar­ter and led 62-58 at half­time. Or­lando steadily in­creased its lead in the sec­ond half.

Evan Fournier had 18 points for Or­lando. Markelle Fultz scored 16 and Ter­rence Ross 15.

Knicks 117, Trail Blaz­ers 93

NEW YORK — Mitchell Robin­son made all 11 shots and had 22 points, Julius Ran­dle added 22 points and 13 re­bounds, and the New York Knicks spoiled Carmelo An­thony’s re­turn to Madi­son Square Gar­den by beat­ing the Port­land Trail Blaz­ers 117-93 on Wed­nes­day night for their sea­son-high third straight vic­tory.

An­thony scored 26 points, his most since re­turn­ing to the NBA, and was cheered be­fore and dur­ing the game at the arena where he played 6 ½ sea­sons. But he was on the bench at the start of the Knicks’ 14-0 run early in the fourth quar­ter that broke open the game.

Reg­gie Bul­lock made two 3-point­ers dur­ing the spurt and scored 11 points in his Knicks de­but. He signed with the team dur­ing the sum­mer but hadn’t played be­cause of a her­ni­ated disk.

Port­land’s Damian Lil­lard was held to 11 points on 5-for-20 shoot­ing af­ter scor­ing 30 or more in the pre­vi­ous three games. The All-Star guard did have 10 re­bounds and eight as­sists, but he missed his first six 3-point­ers be­fore mak­ing his only one of the game as the fi­nal shot of the third quar­ter.

Bucks 106, Tim­ber­wolves 104

MIL­WAU­KEE — Gian­nis An­te­tok­oun­mpo had 32 points and 17 re­bounds, and Mil­wau­kee held off a strong chal­lenge from short-handed Min­nesota in a vic­tory over the Tim­ber­wolves.

An­te­tok­oun­mpo got his 30th dou­ble-dou­ble in 33 games this sea­son and Khris Mid­dle­ton added 13 points de­spite shoot­ing 5 for 18 as Mil­wau­kee hit just 42.6% of its shots over­all and only 9 of 36 from 3-point range.

Shabazz Napier had 22 points to lead Min­nesota, and Gorgui Deng scored 15, Josh Oko­gie added 12 and Jar­ret Cul­ver 10.

Napier, start­ing in place of in­jured point guard Jeff Teague, scored 15 points on 5-of-7 shoot­ing in the first half, but then had just seven af­ter the break.
