Green scores in last second to lift Raptors over Magic 93-91

By Bill Fay, Associated Press ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Danny Green made a fade-away jumper with less than a second remaining to lift the Toronto Raptors over the Orlando Magic 93-91 on Tuesday night (Wednesday, PHL time). "Danny Green for the win... YES HE DID!" The @Raptors newcomer nails the GAME-WINNER to improve to 14-4 on the season! #WeTheNorth pic.twitter.com/7BKDyA9qlz — NBA (@NBA) November 21, 2018 Green caught Kyle Lowry's inbound pass with 2.3 seconds left, pulled up on the left side of the lane and hit a jumper with 0.5 seconds remaining. Orlando's Nikola Vucevic missed on a 67-foot heave as time expired. Kawhi Leonard led Toronto with 18 points, and Pascal Siakam had 15. Serge Ibaka added 14 points and nine rebounds, and Green finished with 13. Evan Fournier led the Magic with 27 points, 22 of them in the second half when he was about the only offense Orlando could generate. Aaron Gordon had 16 points, and Vucevic had 14 points and 18 rebounds for the Magic, who ended a three-game winning streak. Fournier drove past Green for a tying dunk with 2.3 seconds left. The Raptors took a full timeout, and Green scored on the ensuing inbound. Neither team had it going offensively for most of the game, especially in the fourth quarter. The Magic missed 11 straight field-goal attempts in a four-minute stretch early in the period. Their only points were two free throws from Jonathan Isaac, but the drought didn't cost them much. Toronto could only put together a three-pointer from Green and a layup by Jonas Valanciunas during that stretch to take an 80-77 lead. The teams traded baskets from there until Ibaka drilled a jumper from the top of the key to put Toronto in front 91-89. Toronto led by 18 during a first half when both teams struggled to find or maintain an offensive rhythm. The Raptors made enough shots to jump out to a 40-22 advantage in the middle of the second quarter, as Orlando labored under 30 percent shooting. The Magic finally got some rhythm and cut the deficit to 10 by halftime, then caught Toronto by the middle of the third. Fournier started the second half with a three-pointer, the first of six three's in the period for the Magic. Another triple from Fournier tied it at 59 with 5:05 left, and his free throw gave Orlando a 75-73 lead going into the fourth. Fournier had 14 points in the quarter. TIP-INS Raptors: Toronto didn't have a player reach double-figure scoring in the first half. ... Toronto got 17 second-chance points. Magic: Backup F Terrence Ross, the hottest shooter on the Magic over the last five games, was just 2-of-10 against his old team. ... The Magic shot only 41.5 percent for the game. UP NEXT Raptors: Finish a four-game road trip at Atlanta on Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time). Magic: Start a six-game Western Conference swing in Denver on Friday night (Saturday, PHL time)......»»

Wall, Beal, Green help Wizards rally past Clippers 125-118

By Rich Dubroff, Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — John Wall scored 30, Bradley Beal had 27 and Jeff Green added 20 as the Washington Wizards rallied from 24 points down to beat the Los Angeles Clippers 125-118 on Tuesday night (Wednesday, PHL time). Wall, Beal and Green each scored 10 in the fourth quarter as Washington outscored Los Angeles 39-23 to pull out the win. The Clippers led by 24 midway through the second quarter, but the Wizards cut the lead to 95-86 after three quarters and took a 115-113 lead on Wall's layup with 2:33 to play. Tobias Harris scored a season-high 29 points, Montrezl Harrell had 20, and Lou Williams and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander each added 17 for the Clippers, who had won five straight. Williams was ejected with 34.5 seconds to play. Washington, which improved to 6-11, won amid reports the team would listen to trade offers for Wall and Beal. There were also reports that players argued in practice and that Wall had been fined for disrespectful behavior toward coach Scott Brooks. TIP-INS Clippers: C Luc Mbah a Moute missed his 12th straight game with a sore left knee. ... Coach Doc Rivers said it wasn't a problem to face his son, Austin, who was traded from Los Angeles to Washington in the offseason. "We should have that one down tonight," Rivers said. "If we mess that one up, I'm going to go off on the whole team." The Clippers held Austin Rivers to two points. ... G Tyrone Wallace left the court after a violent collision with Beal late in the third quarter. Wallace held a towel over his left eye as he departed. Wizards: C Dwight Howard was out with a glute injury. Howard missed the season's first seven games with the injury. Thomas Bryant received his first NBA start and scored seven points in 19 minutes. ... F Kelly Oubre, Jr. started in place of Markieff Morris. It was the first time Morris came off the bench since Feb. 28, 2016. Oubre committed five fouls in 12 minutes. UP NEXT Clippers: Host Memphis on Friday (Saturday, PHL time).

McCollum, Lillard help Blazers edge Knicks 118-114

By Brian Mahoney, Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — CJ McCollum scored 31 points, Damian Lillard had 29 points, eight assists and six rebounds, and the Portland Trail Blazers beat the New York Knicks 118-114 on Tuesday night (Wednesday, PHL time). Portland's star guards provided most of the offense in a game that was close most of the way, and Evan Turner helped the Trail Blazers finally pull it out when he put back a missed shot with Portland clinging to a two-point lead and 9.5 seconds remaining. Jusuf Nurkic finished with 13 points and 10 rebounds for the Blazers, who have won two straight after dropping the first two games on their trip that now heads to its difficult conclusion. Portland plays Milwaukee on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time) and closes it at Golden State. Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 32 points for the Knicks, who dropped their sixth straight. They were a bit better than the previous games of the skid, when they yielded 126.2 points per game, but not good enough to stop the early Western Conference leaders. Hardaway has scored 30 or more points in three straight games. The Knicks changed lineups again, going back to veteran Enes Kanter over rookie Mitchell Robinson at center, and got off to a good start. The Knicks' lead was 35-33 after Nik Stauskas threw in a 40-footer to beat the first-quarter buzzer. New York opened a 10-point lead early in the third, and that seemed to wake up the Blazers, who outscored the Knicks 24-10 to end the period and take an 89-85 lead to the fourth. The Blazers then opened the fourth with a quick 7-2 spurt, and McCollum had eight straight Portland points as the Blazers took their first double-digit lead at 104-93 with 7:45 to play. TIP-INS Trail Blazers: Nurkic had his career-best fifth straight double-double. ... Portland, which came in shooting an NBA-best 85.4 percent on free throws, was just 12-of-17 (70.6 percent). Knicks: Mario Hezonja made his first start of the season, scoring two points. Only Ron Baker and Luke Kornet haven't made at least one start. ... Trey Burke scored 19 points and Emmanual Mudiay, who has supplanted him as the starting point guard, had 16. CHANGING IT UP Knicks coach David Fizdale said he changed back to Kanter because the 20-year-old Robinson was getting in early foul trouble and having to come out of the games too quickly, affecting the rotations. He said that wouldn't be as much of a problem with Robinson in a reserve role. UP NEXT Trail Blazers: Visit Milwaukee on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time). Knicks: Visit Boston on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time)......»»
