Demetrious Johnson matches record with 10th flyweight title defense

DAVE SKRETTA, AP Sports Writer   KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Demetrious Johnson picked apart Wilson Reis before catching him in an armbar and forcing him to submit Saturday night, retaining his UFC flyweight title for the 10th time to match longtime middleweight king Anderson Silva's record for consecutive defenses. Johnson (26-2-1) toyed with the third-ranked Brazilian challenger throughout the first two rounds, peppering him with jabs and kicks before deftly slipping away. But after knocking him down at 4:49 of the third, 'Mighty Mouse' quickly clamped down on an arm bar and forced Reis to submit. It was a stunning ending to the UFC's debut in Kansas City given Reis's jiu-jitsu pedigree. The only fighter ever to hold the flyweight belt, Johnson extended his win streak to 12 straight to tie Georges St-Pierre for the third-longest in UFC history. Silva won 16 straight fights at his peak, while suspended middleweight Jon Jones is riding a 13-fight win streak. 'I went back and did a lot of things different in this camp and this is the best I've felt,' Johnson said. 'You know what? I think the crowd recognizes, I'm the best champ to ever step in this octagon.' In the co-main event, Rose Namajunas delivered a crushing kick to Michelle Waterson before leaping onto her back and cinching a tight rear-naked choke that forced a second-round tap-out. The strawweight contenders, both ranked in the top 10, shared a hug as they got to their feet. 'I was surprised at the power that Michelle had. She's tough, man,' said Namajunas (7-3), who bounced back from a loss to Karolina Kowalkiewicz at UFC 201 with arguably the best performance of her career. 'I feel like I can go all the way to the belt and hold it for a while.' On the FOX-televised undercard, Robert Whittaker sent a jolt through the middleweight division by stopping third-ranked Ronaldo Souza with a barrage of punches in the second round. Whittaker (19-4) was a big underdog against 'Jacare,' but he looked far more explosive after a tactical first round. Whittaker stunned Souza with a right hand 30 seconds into the second, hit a right high kick moments later, then unloaded with about 90 seconds left to force the stoppage. It was Whittaker's sixth straight win since moving to 185 pounds. 'A lot of people let the hype get in their heads given he's a legend of jiu-jitsu and MMA,' he said. 'At the end of the day, it's not a grappling match. It's not a jiu-jitsu match.' .....»»

(AP) -- Nikola Vucevic had 26 points and 13 rebounds, Evan Fournier scored 19 points and the Orlando Magic beat the Philadelphia 76ers 112-109 in overtime on Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time). Orlando overcame a 17-point second-half deficit. Fournier led the way in OT with eight points, and Terrence Ross had four points in the extra session and 15 overall. The Magic also beat Phoenix on Friday (Saturday, PHL time) and have consecutive wins for the first time since December.

Richaun Holmes and Robert Covington led the 76ers with 24 points each, while Holmes had 14 rebounds and Covington had 13. Holmes was starting in place of injured Jahlil Okafor at center.

The 76ers forced overtime when Justin Anderson converted 1-of-2 free throws with 20.7 seconds remaining to make it 98-98. A minute earlier, Payton scored on a layup to give the Magic a 98-97 lead. The Magic completed their comeback when Ross buried a pull-up jumper with 3:28 left to lead 94-92. Seconds earlier, Gordon made two free throws to tie it after Saric got his sixth foul. Holmes was on his way to a big night in the first half with 17 points and nine rebounds to help the 76ers take a 56-41 lead at the break.

Kemba Walker leads Hornets past Pacers, 100-88

em>By Jodie Valade, Associated Press /em> CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Kemba Walker scored 28 points, Nicolas Batum added 21 and the Charlotte Hornets beat the Indiana Pacers 100-88 on Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time). Returning home after their victory Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) in Denver, the Hornets notched consecutive wins for the first time since Jan. 20-21. Paul George had 36 points on 15-of-25 shooting for the Pacers (32-31), who were playing the final game of a five-game road trip. Charlotte (28-35) used a fast start to provide enough cushion to cruise to the victory, despite Indiana's second-half comeback attempt that sliced the Hornets' lead to 82-75 with 8:12 remaining. Jeremy Lamb sank a three-pointer and a layup for the Hornets, however, to keep the Pacers at bay. Five players scored in double-digits for the Hornets, including 14 from Lamb, 13 points and 11 rebounds from Cody Zeller, and 11 points and 13 rebounds from Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. .....»»

Hornets end losing skid, top Brooklyn 111-107

em>By Jodie Valade, Associated Press /em> CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Kemba Walker, Nicolas Batum and Marco Belinelli each had 17 points as the Charlotte Hornets snapped a seven-game losing streak with a 111-107 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night (Wednesday, PHL time). Charlotte (24-28) had not won since a Jan. 21 (Jan. 22, PHL time) triumph over Brooklyn. In this game, the Hornets' balanced offense included double-digit scoring from seven players and an early lead that ballooned to as many as 17 points in the second quarter. Brooklyn lost its 10th straight game with the Nets last victory coming on Jan. 20 (Jan. 21, PHL time) at New Orleans. Bojan Bogdanovic scored 22 points and Brook Lopez added 20 for the Nets (9-43). Jeremy Lamb added 16 points for the Hornets, while center Frank Kaminsky recorded 12 points, 11 rebounds and five assists.  The Hornets pulled away early, using a 10-0 run in the first quarter to take a 14-4 advantage with 5:28 left in that period. In all, Brooklyn scored just 16 first-quarter points compared to Charlotte's 24. Only the Nets' 14-point first quarter on Jan. 21 (Jan. 22, PHL time) was a smaller opponent output for the Hornets this season. But the Nets continued to attack, and sliced Charlotte's lead to 91-87 with 6:11 remaining when Joe Harris knocked in a 23-foot jumper. Charlotte, however, countered with quick baskets from Marvin Williams and Belinelli to give the needed cushion. Charlotte's All-Star guard Walker caused a small scare when he doubled-over from an elbow to the face by Harris as he drove to the basket with 1:45 left in the first quarter. Walker immediately came out of game and was tended to on the bench by medical staff. He returned to the contest with 7:29 left in the second quarter. strong>TIP-INS /strong> em> strong>Nets: /strong> /em> Spencer Dinwiddie started at point guard, as rookie Isaiah Whitehead was moved to the bench. It was Dinwiddie's 12th game started in 29 contests with the Nets, and came about because Brooklyn still is searching for cohesive units. 'It's about getting guys in their comfort zone and figuring out which point guard fits with each group,' Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said. 'Unfortunately, this late in the season, we're still searching.' Former Hornets guard Jeremy Lin missed a chance to play in front of the crowd he played for last season, sitting out because of a strained left hamstring. Lin has played in just 12 games for the Nets this season. em> strong>Hornets: /strong> /em> Center Cody Zeller missed his eighth straight game with a quad contusion.

Magic catch fire, hand Knicks fifth straight loss

em>By Brian Mahoney, Associated Press /em> NEW YORK (AP) — Jodie Meeks scored a season-high 23 points, Serge Ibaka and Aaron Gordon each had 22 and the Orlando Magic rolled to a 115-103 victory Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time) over the New York Knicks, who lost their fifth straight game. Nikola Vucevic had 14 points and 13 rebounds and fellow reserve Elfrid Payton added 13 points and 14 assists for the Magic, who were routed in their previous two games but totally turned things around against a Knicks team that played without Kristaps Porzingis or much defensive intensity. Carmelo Anthony scored 19 points for the Knicks, who have dropped eight of 10 to fall to 16-18. Two nights after yielding a season-worst 69 points in the first half to James Harden and Houston, the Knicks surrendered 67 to the Magic. Orlando opened a 17-point cushion late in the third quarter on a basket by Ibaka, who had 11 points in the period. .....»»

Turner's double-double leads Pacers over Magic

em>By Jim Johnson, Associated Press /em> INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Myles Turner had 23 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Indiana Pacers to a 117-104 victory over the Orlando Magic on Sunday (Monday, PHL time). Paul George added 19 points for the Pacers (17-18), who have won two straight after a season-worst four-game losing streak last month. Nikola Vucevic had 18 points and 11 rebounds while Jeff Green and Serge Ibaka each scored 17 points for the Magic (15-20). Indiana went on a 6-0 spurt midway through the fourth quarter to pull away. Monta Ellis scored back-to-back baskets to put the Pacers ahead 101-82. Later, George made a three-pointer to give Indiana a 108-88 lead with 4:48 to go. After a rough ending to December, the Pacers were looking to get the New Year off to a good start. Sunday's (Monday, PHL time) win is the second against Orlando this season. Indiana will travel to Orlando in a month and again in April to complete the four-game regular season series tween the two teams. The Magic were searching for a way to bounce back after spending the last four days mulling over a 120-101 loss to Charlotte. Orlando never found a way to do it against the Pacers. Green scored early in the fourth quarter to put the Magic within nine. But the Pacers answered with baskets by Brooks and Al Jefferson, and then Jefferson dunked to give Indiana a 95-80 lead with 8:51 to go. Jeff Teague limped to the locker room late in the second quarter and was listed as questionable with a sprained left ankle, but then created a spark early in the second half. Teague scored on lay-ups off missed three-pointers by George and Glenn Robinson III, and then drove to the basket for another basket before tossing a pass to Turner for an alley-oop dunk to put the Pacers ahead 74-56 with 8:30 remaining in the third quarter. After Ibaka scored and Jodie Meeks made a three-pointer to put the Magic within six with 36 seconds remaining in the first half, Brooks scored a basket and threw up a triple at the buzzer to give the Pacers a 62-51 halftime lead. strong>TIP-INS /strong> em> strong>Magic: /strong> /em>Aaron Gordon had 13 points and six rebounds.
