The Washington Post - - SPORTS -

Nikola Vuce­vic and Aaron Gor­don each scored 22 points, Evan Fournier had 17, and the host Or­lando Magic ral­lied past the in­jury-de­pleted Hous­ton Rock­ets, 116-109, on Sun­day night.

James Har­den scored 38 points to push his run of 30-point games to 16, but the Rock­ets star was just 1 for 17 on three-point­ers. He added 12 as­sists and nine re­bounds.

Hous­ton’s Austin Rivers scored 25 points, and Clint Capela had 17 points and 10 re­bounds. Ter­rence Ross had 17 points for Or­lando.

WAR­RIORS 119, MAV­ER­ICKS 114: Stephen Curry made 11 three-point­ers on his way to 48 points as Golden State held off host Dal­las.

Kevin Du­rant added 28 points for the War­riors. Curry’s 11th three-pointer — ty­ing a sea­son high — gave the War­riors a 117-114 lead in a see­saw fourth quar­ter.

Luka Don­cic scored 26 points for Dal­las, and Barnes had 22.

76ERS 108, KNICKS 105: Ben Sim­mons fell just short of a triple-dou­ble with 20 points, 22 re­bounds and nine as­sists as Philadel­phia es­caped with a win in New York.

New York’s Em­manuel Mu­diay missed a three-pointer at the buzzer that could have sent the game to over­time. JJ Red­dick had 22 points for the 76ers, who ended a two-game skid.

Com­ing off a loss at Wash­ing­ton that An­te­tok­oun­mpo missed with in­juries, Mil­wau­kee is 12-0 fol­low­ing a de­feat and re­mained the NBA’s only team that has not dropped con­sec­u­tive games.

Bu­den­holzer made his first trip to At­lanta since he left the team after last sea­son. Trae Young scored 26 points for the Hawks.

NUGGETS 116, TRAIL BLAZ­ERS 113: Nikola Jo­kic’s bas­ket with 1:07 left — the last field goal on his way to 40 points — put Den­ver ahead for good as it scored a vic­tory against vis­it­ing Port­land.
