Celtics 113, Magic 94

Kelly Olynyk and Marcus Smart scored 16 points apiece as host Boston won a season-high fifth straight game, beating slumping Orlando on Friday night.

Jae Crowder and Evan Turner each added 15 points for the Celtics (27-21), and Isaiah Thomas had 14 points and eight assists in just 27 minutes of play.

Ignited by Olynyk, who scored nine of his points in the fourth quarter, the Celtics seized control by starting the period on a 22-4 run and pushing their lead as high as 27.

Nik Vucevic led Orlando (20-25) with 14 points and eight rebounds. Shabazz Napier added 13 points.

The Magic struggled all night offensively, committing 16 turnovers that led to 22 points by the Celtics.

Orlando has now lost 10 consecutive regular-season games in Boston.

Knicks 102, Suns 84

Carmelo Anthony had 19 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists in his return from a two-game absence, and host New York snapped a four-game losing streak with a win over Phoenix.

Kristaps Porzingis also rejoined the lineup with seven points and seven rebounds, and the Knicks (23-26) sent the Suns (14-34) to their 13th straight road loss.

Anthony had sat out with soreness in his surgically repaired left knee, and Porzingis missed his first game of the season Thursday with an upper respiratory illness. Having them back helped Arron Afflalo, who scored 12 of his 17 points in helping the Knicks open a big first-quarter lead that was never really threatened.

Rookie Devin Booker scored 21 points for the Suns, who fell to 4-21 on the road. Their last road victory was Dec. 7 in Chicago.

•?The Suns signed high-scoring NBA Development League player Jordan McRae to a 10-day contract. McRae set a D-League record by scoring 61 points for the Delaware 87ers in a 130-123 overtime victory over the Canton Charge on Tuesday night.

Thunder 116,?Rockets 108

Russell Westbrook’s sixth triple-double of the season helped host Oklahoma City defeat Houston Rockets.

Westbrook finished with 26 points, 14 assists and 10 rebounds. It was the 25th triple-double of his career.

Kevin Durant had 33 points and 12 rebounds and Enes Kanter scored 20 of his 22 points in the second half for the Thunder (36-13), who have won 10-of-11 overall and six straight at home.

James Harden had 33 points, seven rebounds and seven assists and Corey Brewer added 17 points for the Rockets (24-24). Houston shot 38 percent overall and made just 9-of-39 3-pointers and 27-of-43 free throws.

Houston’s Dwight Howard was ejected in the third quarter after picking up his second technical foul, and Kanter scored all 20 of his second-half points after that.

Mavericks 91, Nets 79

Chandler Parsons had 19 points and a season-high 10 rebounds as host Dallas beat Brooklyn.

Parsons led the Mavericks (27-22) in scoring for the fifth time in six games and is averaging 24 points during that span. He appears close to a full recovery from offseason right knee surgery.

Brook Lopez scored 28 points to lead the Nets (12-35).
