76ers 74, Magic 69


Andre Iguodala had 14 points and 11 rebounds to lead host Philadelphia to its third straight win, over Orlando Monday night. Led by Iguodala’s burst in the third quarter, the Sixers outlasted the stumbling Magic. Dwight Howard’s 17 points and 11 rebounds weren’t enough in Orlando’s fourth straight loss. Howard wants out of Orlando and criticized his teammates Friday for not playing hard enough in a loss to New Orleans.


Bulls 98, Wizards 88


Derrick Rose scored a season-high 35 points, Carlos Boozer had 18 and Kyle Korver added 17 to lead Chicago to a win over host Washington. Rose, who was 10 for 20 from the field and 14 of 15 from the free-throw line, had 34 points in his previous two games. He had 13 in the first quarter for the Bulls, who never trailed. John Wall led the Wizards with 20 points, while Nick Young had 17 and JaVale McGee scored 16.


Heat 109, Hornets 95


LeBron James and Dwyane Wade each scored 22 points, Mike Miller added 14 off the bench and host Miami Heat shook off a slow start to run away from New Orleans Hornets. James added 11 rebounds and eight assists for Miami, which won for the eighth time in nine games and had six players in double figures. Chris Bosh and Norris Cole each scored 12 for the Heat. Miami was down 45-33 midway through the second quarter, then outscored New Orleans 76-50 the rest of the way. Jarrett Jack and Carl Landry each scored 14 for New Orleans, which lost for the 17th time in 19 games. The Hornets only managed 25 rebounds — the lowest total in the NBA this season. Miami had 39 rebounds, and James had more by himself than any two Hornets combined.


Bucks 103, Pistons 82


Brandon Jennings had 21 points, reserve Mike Dunleavy added a season-high 20 on 8-of-10 shooting and host Milwaukee rolled to victory over skidding Detroit. Drew Gooden shot 7 of 9 and scored 16 points for Milwaukee, including 10 straight early in the third quarter during a decisive 12-2 run to open the second half. Detroit never led in falling to 4-18.


Rodney Stuckey led the Pistons with 19 points, and Greg Monroe added 16 points and 10 rebounds.


Milwaukee has won four of six after losing three straight. Jennings scored nine points in the first 7› minutes, helping the Bucks to a 30-16 lead after the first quarter.

O.J. Mayo led Memphis with 17 points, shooting 7 of 11. Mike Conley had 15 points for Memphis, and Marreese Speights scored 10, all in the first quarter. But Memphis was held to 37 percent shooting on the night, primarily because Rudy Gay and Marc Gasol, the Grizzlies’ two leading scorers, were a combined 3 of 18 from the field.

Michael Beasley scored 34 points, Ricky Rubio had 18 points and 11 assists and the Minnesota Timberwolves beat host Houston in Rick Adelman’s return to Houston.
