Bucks 130, 76ers 110

O.J. Mayo made seven 3-pointers and scored 25 points, Ersan Ilyasova added 20, and Milwaukee placed seven players in double figures in a rout of the host 76ers, who lost their 11th straight game.

Ramon Sessions had 16 points, Khris Middleton and Brandon Knight scored 15 each, and Giannis Antetokounmpo posted 13 for the Bucks (11-45), who own the NBA’s worst record. John Henson chipped in 12 points for the Bucks, who had their highest-scoring game of the season.

Philadelphia (15-42), which owns the league’s second worst record, has lost 21-of-24 and 10 straight at home. It is the club’s longest skid since a 12-game losing streak during the 1996-97 season.

Thaddeus Young led the 76ers with 28 points, Michael Carter-Williams added 20, Tony Wroten had 19, and James Anderson scored 13.

The Bucks had lost two in a row, 21-of-24, and 10 straight on the road. Their last away victory was against the Los Angeles Lakers on Dec. 31.

Milwaukee still hasn’t won back-to-back games this season.

Warriors 104, Pistons 96

Stephen Curry had 19 points, nine assists and eight rebounds, and Golden State clamped down on host Detroit in the second half.

Klay Thompson scored 19 points for Golden State, which has won four in a row. The Pistons have lost five out of seven since firing Maurice Cheeks and replacing him with interim coach John Loyer.

The Warriors were still without David Lee, who has been dealing with a stomach flu. Andrew Bogut returned from a left shoulder injury and played 29 minutes before fouling out.

Mavericks 110, Knicks 108

Dirk Nowitzki’s 19-foot jumper bounced up and then fell in as time expired, giving Dallas a victory over host New York.

The Mavericks blew an eight-point lead in the final 90 seconds, then pulled out their third straight victory when Nowitzki’s jumper that seemed to have missed instead fell through.

Carmelo Anthony had 44 points and nine rebounds for the Knicks.

He played strong defense on the Mavericks’ final possession, but was left standing in disbelief long after the buzzer after Nowitzki’s shot appeared to hit the backboard first, then the front rim, then bounced up before dropping.

Vince Carter scored 23 points and Monta Ellis had 22 for Dallas, which has won nine out of 11 and is a season-best 12 games over .500.

Clippers 123, Pelicans 110

Jamal Crawford hit seven 3s on his way to 24 points, and Los Angeles beat host New Orleans.

Crawford picked up where he left off in Oklahoma City a day earlier, when he hit five 3-pointers and finished with 36 points in the Clippers’ victory over the Thunder.

Jazz 110, Celtics 98

Alec Burks had 21 points, and Derrick Favors scored 20 in his return from a hip injury to power host Utah to a rare win over Boston, which lost its fifth straight game.

Marvin Williams made 8 of 10 shots and scored 19 points for the Jazz.
