Westbrook, Murray tussle as Nuggets beat Thunder 109-98

By Dennis Georgatos, Associated Press DENVER (AP) — Nikola Jokic scored 24 points, Jamal Murray had 19 and the Denver Nuggets beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 109-98 on Friday night (Saturday, PHL time) after Murray and Russell Westbrook had a heated exchange. Westbrook and Murray pushed each other and argued after lining up next to each other for a jump ball in the final seconds. Jokic tried to get between them, and Westbrook threatened to beat up Jokic while being restrained. No blows were exchanged, but the final moments played out amid heightened tensions. Jokic also had 15 rebounds and nine assists, just shy of a third triple-double this season. Nick Young, signed as a free agent Monday (Tuesday, PHL time), scored six points in his Nuggets debut, including a key three-pointer in the fourth quarter. Paul George had 32 points to lead the Thunder, who lost their fourth in a row to the Nuggets. Steven Adams added 26 points, and Jerami Grant and Westbrook finished with 13 points apiece. Trailing by 10 points late in the third quarter, Oklahoma City got a layup and a three-pointer from George in the final minute to pull to within 82-76. With a 9-2 burst capped by another layup from George, Oklahoma City pulled within 99-96 with 3:20 remaining. The Nuggets scored 10 of the last 12 points down the stretch, four of them on a jumper and a pair of free throws by Murray. The teams were gathered for a jump ball with 35.7 seconds left when Westbrook, apparently upset over Murray's positioning around the circle, began pushing him. As Murray pushed back, teammates and officials quickly rushed in to separate the two, who exchanged words before the skirmish ended. The Nuggets took a 60-52 lead at halftime, boosted by Torrey Craig's perimeter shooting as he made three of his first four attempts from three-point range. Adams scored 17 of his points in the first half, helping to keep the Thunder within striking distance. TIP-INS Thunder: Andre Roberson remains sidelined by a left patellar tendon injury that has kept him out all season. Nuggets: F Paul Millsap missed a third game since suffering a right big toe fracture. ... G Gary Harris missed a fifth straight game because of a right hip injury. ... F Mason Plumlee fouled out with just over six minutes left to play. UP NEXT Thunder: Complete a back-to-back at home Saturday night (Sunday, PHL time) against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Nikola Vucevic leads Magic over Bulls in Mexico City

MEXICO CITY --- The Bulls had the fans, but Nikola Vucevic and the Magic got the win. Vucevic scored 26 points, including a tiebreaking jumper with 28 seconds remaining, and Orlando snapped a three-game losing streak with a 97-91 victory over Chicago on Thursday night in its first of two games in Mexico.

Vucevic leads Magic over Bulls 97-91 in Mexico City

By Carlos Rodriguez, Associated Press MEXICO CITY (AP) — Nikola Vucevic scored 26 points, including a tie-breaking jumper with 28 seconds remaining, and the Orlando Magic snapped a three-game losing streak with a 97-91 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Thursday night (Friday, PHL time) in their first of two games in Mexico. Vucevic shot 11-for-21 from the field and grabbed 10 rebounds, while D.J. Augustin added 15 points for the Magic. Zach LaVine scored 23 points but the Bulls (6-23) lost for the 10th time in their last 11 games and remained with the worst record in the Eastern Conference. After Lauri Markkanen tied it at 91 with 1:06 left to play, Vucevic nailed a 15-foot jumper to put the Magic ahead and Augustin iced the game with four free throws in the final seconds.

Mitchell, Jazz roll over short-handed Heat 111-84

By Matthew Coles, Associated Press SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Donovan Mitchell scored 21 points and Derrick Favors had 17 to help the Utah Jazz romp over the short-handed Miami Heat 111-84 on Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time). "It started from the tip," Mitchell said after the Jazz led by as many as 42. "We came out strong and didn't let up." Playing against one of his basketball idols probably for the final time, Mitchell unleashed a variety of moves — the crossovers and misdirection dribbles that have prompted comparisons to a young Dwyane Wade. Mitchell has acknowledged he studies film of Wade to develop his own offensive repertoire. On Tuesday night (Wednesday, PHL time), Mitchell took Wade to dinner in downtown Salt Lake City and gifted him a rocking chair. Then, the second-year guard, who said he calls Wade on the phone often and picks his brain, matched up and scored on the 12-time All-Star at least a few times in the blowout. Rodney McGruder paced the Heat with 16 points and Kelly Olynyk had 14 as Miami played without Hassan Whiteside and Goran Dragic. Wade, set to retire after the season, scored six points. Less than two weeks ago, the Jazz also went up big in the first quarter against the Heat, leading by as many as 19 before allowing a 20-0 run and watching Wade sink two free throws to win it in Miami, 102-100. This time, there was no such drama. The Jazz sprinted out to a 34-10 lead on hot shooting and tenacious defense that denied the Heat any easy looks early. Favors went 7-of-8 and had eight boards in 19 minutes, while Rudy Gobert had 10 points and 11 rebounds. Kyle Korver, who has opened up the floor for the Jazz since arriving via trade from Cleveland, made four more three-pointers and scored 16 points. The Jazz have had an up-and-down year by any measure. This win marked Utah's second by 27 points or more in eight days, but the Jazz have also lost games by 33 and 50 points and have yet to reach the .500 mark at home (now 5-6). Even within the same game, the Jazz were nearly unstoppable in the first quarter — shooting 70 percent — but went through long stretches later in the game when they couldn't generate any offense and had a spate of turnovers. They ended up shooting 52.6 percent, including 16-of-32 from three-point range, with 17 turnovers. The Heat have been riding their own rollercoaster. They led by 31 in the second quarter of a win against New Orleans on Nov. 30 (Dec. 1, PHL time) and then trailed by 31 — and more — in the second quarter to the Jazz less than two weeks later. MISSING YOU Whiteside, who left the court for the locker room during the fourth quarter of a home loss to Orlando last week, is still not with the team for personal reasons. He later said he just needed to go to the bathroom, but Miami coach Erik Spoelstra was upset and said the Heat "handled it as a team." Whiteside is expected back with the club on Friday (Saturday, PHL time). Dragic, who has battled a sore right knee for the last six weeks and had it drained in mid-November, missed the game — his 12th scratch of the season. Fellow guard Dion Waiters hasn't played at all since having ankle surgery in January. TIP-INS Heat: Wade, making his last regular-season appearance in Salt Lake City, got a standing ovation when he checked in midway through the first quarter and another when exited the court after the game. ... The Heat's 15 points were a season low in the first quarter for a Jazz opponent. Jazz: Raul Neto missed the game with a sore right leg. ... The win snapped a four-game skid against Miami. UP NEXT Heat: Visit the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday night (Saturday, PHL time). Jazz: At the Orlando Magic on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time)......»»

Fox sparks 2nd-half rally, Kings beat Bulls 108-89

By John Jackson, Associated Press CHICAGO (AP) — De'Aaron Fox scored 23 of his 25 points in the second half, and the Sacramento Kings rallied to beat the Chicago Bulls 108-89 on Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time). Fox went 8-for-11 from the field after missing each of his first five shots in the first half. Bogdan Bogdanovic and Marvin Bagley III added 16 points apiece as Sacramento closed out a 3-1 road trip. Chicago led by as many as 14 in its ninth loss in 10 games. The Bulls were coming off a franchise-record 133-77 loss to the Boston Celtics on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time). Zach LaVine led Chicago with 19 points, and Lauri Markkanen had 13. After falling behind 17-0 on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time), the Bulls got off to a better start in this one. They led 33-26 at the end of the first quarter and 56-45 at halftime. Chicago had a 66-57 lead in the third before Sacramento closed the quarter with a 24-8 run. The speedy Fox sparked the offense with 15 points during the key stretch, but the Kings also picked up the pressure on defense. The Bulls shot 22-for-41 (53.7 percent) from the field in the first half, but were just 6-for-16 (37.5 percent) in the third. Sacramento kept up the intensity in the fourth and Chicago never made a serious push. TIP-INS Kings: Buddy Hield and Iman Shumpert each scored 14 points. Willie Cauley-Stein had 11 points and 16 rebounds. ... Sacramento improved to 14-12. It's the latest point in a season it has been above .500 since the 2005-06 season. The Kings finished 44-38 that year in their most recent playoff appearance. Bulls: G Kris Dunn (sprained left knee) and F Bobby Portis (sprained right knee) returned to the lineup after sitting out nearly seven weeks. Dunn finished with nine points in 20 minutes, and Portis had nine points in 19 minutes. ... G Justin Holiday went 1-for-6 on three-pointers. He has made at least one triple in 39 consecutive games dating to last season. He's the only NBA player with at least one three-pointer in every game this season. TIPPING POINT Less than a week into his tenure, Bulls coach Jim Boylen faced a crisis over the weekend. Following the loss to the Celtics, Boylen planned to practice on Sunday (Monday, PHL time) even though the Bulls had played back-to-back games. Some players reportedly discussed not showing up. Instead of a practice session, a lengthy team meeting was held. Before Monday's (Tuesday, PHL time) game, Boylen said everything was fine and he would continue to push hard. "I expected something like yesterday to happen," he said. "I've been waiting on it, I was prepared for it, I took it head on." UP NEXT Kings: Host the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time). Bulls: Play the Orlando Magic in Mexico City on Thursday night (Friday, PHL time) to begin a three-game trip......»»

Barnes, Brunson lead Mavericks past Magic 101-76

By Dave Jackson, Associated Press DALLAS (AP) — Harrison Barnes scored 19 points, rookie Jalen Brunson added 17 and the Dallas Mavericks beat the Orlando Magic 101-76 on Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time). Brunson got the start at point guard in place of injured Dennis Smith Jr. (right wrist sprain) and reached a career high in points. He has scored in double figures in each of the Mavs' last three games. Luka Doncic had 11 rebounds and a season-high nine assists to offset a 2-for-11 shooting performance, finishing with seven points. Dwight Powell had 16 for the Mavericks. Dallas never trailed in winning its 10th straight at home for the first time since the 2007-08 season. The Mavericks led by as many as 28 in the fourth quarter. Jonathon Simmons had a season-high 18 for the Magic and Aaron Gordon scored 10. Orlando played without Evan Fournier, who missed the game for personal reasons. Orlando's Nikola Vucevic played 26 minutes despite turning his ankle during a loss Friday (Saturday, PHL time) against Indiana. He scored just eight but had 16 rebounds. Brunson was 5-for-5 from the field in the first half and scored 11 points, as did Barnes, who had the Mavericks' final eight to give Dallas a 52-40 lead at halftime. Brunson then gave Dallas a 61-44 lead with a triple from the right corner with 9:05 left in the third quarter. They extended the lead to 22 by the end of the period. TIP-INS Magic: Coach Steve Clifford did not detail the reasons for Fournier's absence, but said, "It's totally excused." Jonathan Isaac started in Fournier's spot. Clifford didn't know whether Fournier would miss more games. . Rookie Mo Bamba, who had played in all 26 previous games, was a DNP-Coach's Decision on Monday (Tuesday, PHL time). Mavericks: Coach Rick Carlisle on the decision to start Brunson in place of the injured Smith in the last two games: "He earned that opportunity based on his play through the first two months along with how he played in the New Orleans game (a 132-106 loss). He played a very solid game even though it was a blowout." IT'S BEEN A WHILE For perspective on how long it has been since Dallas won 10 games in a row at home, consider that the 2007-08 season was the last one the Mavericks were coached by someone other than Carlisle, who took over for Avery Johnson after that season. The Mavericks' final loss of that regular season came against the Seattle SuperSonics, led by then-rookie Kevin Durant. The SuperSonics moved to Oklahoma City after that season. UP NEXT Magic: Travel to Mexico City to play Chicago on Thursday (Friday, PHL time) and Utah on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time). Both are Magic home games. Mavericks: Host Atlanta on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time)......»»
