LOS ANGELES — Danny Green hit a six-foot jump shot at the buzzer to give the visiting Toronto Raptors a 93-91 victory over the Orlando Magic on Tuesday night.
The winning shot off a pass from Kyle Lowry came after Evan Fournier tied the game for Orlando on a dunk with 2.3 seconds to play.
Kawhi Leonard led Toronto with 18 points, Pascal Siakam had 15 points and nine rebounds, Serge Ibaka had 14 points and nine rebounds and Green scored 13.
Fournier led Orlando with 27 points, Aaron Gordon had 16 points and nine rebounds and Nikola Vucevic had 14 points and 18 rebounds.
CJ McCollum scored 13 of his 31 points in the fourth quarter and helped Portland get past host New York. Damian Lillard added 29 points for the Trail Blazers.
Portland came back from a 10-point deficit and outscored the Knicks 53-39 in the final 19:15. McCollum made 13 of 23 shots and posted his third game of at least 30 points this season as Portland won for the sixth time in eight games.
Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 32 points, but his third straight game of at least 30 points was not enough for the Knicks, who dropped their sixth straight despite shooting 50.6 percent.
NETS 104, HEAT 92
D’Angelo Russell scored 20 points as Brooklyn sent host Miami to its fifth straight home loss, the Heat’s worst home skid since 2014.
The Nets, who had lost four of their past five games, also got 13 points, 14 rebounds and two blocks from Jarrett Allen. Russell, who added nine rebounds and six assists, scored eight of his points in the fourth quarter.
Hassan Whiteside led Miami with 21 points and 23 rebounds — both game highs. Josh Richardson added 16 points, and Rodney McGruder scored 15 points.
John Wall scored 30 points, Bradley Beal added 27 and the Washington Wizards rallied from 24 points down in the first half to defeat the visiting Los Angeles Clippers 125-118 on Tuesday night.
Reserve Jeff Green scored 20 points on 8-of-11 shooting for the Wizards, and Otto Porter Jr. contributed 11 points and 14 rebounds.
The Wizards trailed by nine to start the fourth quarter, and Wall’s 3-pointer with 8:12 left cut the deficit to 101-97.
Back-to-back threes by Green soon pulled the Wizards within two points, and Markieff Morris (12 points) hit a corner three to give Washington its first lead, 110-109, since the opening minutes.
Green’s dunk off a feed from Morris made it 119-113 with 1:16 remaining, and Morris soon added two free throws to cap an 8-0 run.
Tobias Harris had 29 points and nine rebounds for Los Angeles, which had won five straight. Montrezl Harrell scored 20 off the bench and had nine rebounds.
The Clippers, who were 8-0 when leading to start the fourth quarter, finished with 17 turnovers while playing the second of back-to-backs.
Los Angeles led by 19 at halftime, but Wall and Beal sparked an 11-2 run that pulled the Wizards within 81-70 with 4:56 left in the third quarter. Washington got within 95-86 by the end of the quarter.
Washington snapped a two-game losing streak one day after reports surfaced involving management’s apparent willingness to break up the team and about verbal altercations that took place last week during practice.
The Wizards were without center Dwight Howard (a recurrence of gluteal soreness). Thomas Bryant started for Howard, and coach Scott Brooks inserted forward Kelly Oubre Jr. in place of Morris.
The game was tied 7-7 early in the first quarter before the Clippers went on a 31-11 run. Los Angeles made 5 of 8 from 3-point range in the quarter, and Harris scored 18 points in the quarter on 7-of-9 shooting. — Reuters
