New York falters without Brunson; Bucks win 18th of 19


NEW YORK — Kelly Oubre Jr. scored 27 points, Terry Rozier added 25 and the Charlotte Hornets snapped the New York Knicks' nine-game winning streak with a 112-105 victory Tuesday night.

They trailed by 16 at halftime and were still down nine midway through the fourth quarter before surging past a Knicks team that appeared to lack energy, two nights after needing two overtimes to win in Boston.

The Knicks, playing without starting point guard Jalen Brunson for a second straight game because of a sore left foot, scored 45 points in the second quarter but managed just 60 in the other three.

Bucks 134, Magic 123 :In Orlando, Brook Lopez scored 26 points, Kris Middleton and Jevon Carter each added 24 points and Milwaukee won its 18th in 19 games.

The Bucks played without All-stars Giannis Antetokoun­mpo, and Jrue Holiday.

Thunder 137, Warrors 128: In Oklahoma City, Shai Gilgeous-alexander scored 33 points, Josh Giddey had the seventh triple-double of his career and third of the season, and Oklahoma City beat Golden State.

Giddey finished with 17 points, a career-high 17 assists and 11 rebounds.

76ers 117, Timberwolv­es 94: In Minneapoli­s, Joel Embiid scored 39 points, Tyrese Maxey added 27 in Philadelph­ia’s victory over Minnesota, despite playing without star James Harden.

Harden, the team’s secondlead­ing scorer and NBA assist leader, was held out with left foot soreness. Embiid made up for Harden’s absence, scoring 22 points in the third quarter as Philadelph­ia pulled away and wrapped up its five-game road trip with a 4-1 mark.

Nets 118, Rockets 96 : In Houston, Mikal Bridges scored 30 points, Spencer Dinwiddie added 23 and Brooklyn had a big third quarter to beat Houston for its third straight victory.
