ORLANDO, Fla. — Andray Blatche had 15 points, Brook Lopez added 14 points and 10 rebounds and the Brooklyn Nets beat the Orlando Magic 107-68 Friday night.


Brooklyn never trailed while snapping a 10-game losing streak to Orlando that dated to 2009.


E'Twaun Moore led the Magic with 18 points, and Arron Afflalo finished with 12.


The Nets dominated inside, with Lopez and Blatche pushing around Orlando's young front line. They also got a lift from their bench, with Brooklyn's reserves outscoring their counterparts 55-18 for the game.



Bucks 101, Wizards 91

WASHINGTON — Even a 12-point head start against the Milwaukee Bucks was not nearly enough for the winless Washington Wizards.


Monta Ellis scored 22 points, and the Bucks quickly erased an early deficit before pulling away with a 13-0 run bridging the third and fourth quarters to beat the Wizards 101-91 Friday night, when Milwaukee's Brandon Jennings and Washington's Bradley Beal were ejected in the final minute.


Heat 95, Hawks 89

ATLANTA — LeBron James scored 21 points, including the clinching jumper with 13.6 seconds remaining, and Miami knocked off the Atlanta Hawks for the Heat's fourth straight win.


Jeff Teague hit consecutive 3-pointers as the Hawks rallied from a nine-point deficit in the fourth quarter. But Josh Smith, on an awful night, missed two free throws with just over a minute remaining, and James finished off Atlanta after the teams traded turnovers.




Knicks 104, Mavericks 94

NEW YORK — Carmelo Anthony scored 31 points and the New York Knicks improved their best start in nearly two decades to 4-0 with a victory over the Dallas Mavericks.


JR Smith added 22 points for the Knicks, the only unbeaten team remaining in the NBA. They hadn't been perfect after four games since the 1993-94 team started 7-0 en route to the NBA Finals.




76ers 106, Celtics 100

BOSTON — Evan Turner scored 25 points, Jrue Holiday added 21 and the Philadelphia 76ers held off several fourth-quarter rallies to beat the Boston Celtics.


The Celtics cut the lead to four twice in the fourth quarter, 83-79 and 102-98, but couldn't get any closer and fell to 2-3 with their only victories coming over the winless Washington Wizards. The 76ers won their second game in three nights to improve to 3-2.



Thunder 105, Pistons 94

OKLAHOMA CITY — Serge Ibaka scored a career-high 25 points, Kevin Durant chipped in a season-high 25 points and 13 rebounds, and the Oklahoma City Thunder broke in their new alternate jerseys by beating the winless Detroit Pistons.


The Thunder scored nine straight points soon after Durant checked back into the game midway through the fourth quarter, stretching their lead to 93-77 after the three-time NBA scoring champion hit two free throws with 5:47 to play.


Hornets 107, Bobcats 99

NEW ORLEANS — Anthony Davis had 23 points, 11 rebounds and five blocks in his first game back after a concussion, and the New Orleans Hornets handed the Charlotte Bobcats their third straight loss.



Timberwolves 96, Pacers 94

MINNEAPOLIS — Chase Budinger converted a layup on a feed from Andrei Kirilenko with 0.8 seconds to go, lifting the Minnesota Timberwolves to a victory over the Indiana Pacers.
