WASHINGTON -- Otto Porter had 25 points and a career-high six 3-pointers as the Washington Wizards extended their home winning streak to 13 straight with a 104-101 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night.
John Wall also had 25 points, including six in the final 2:11, and 13 assists for the Wizards (22-19), who won three in a row and six of seven overall. Markieff Morris also had a double-double with 17 points and 12 rebounds as Washington exacted revenge from a pre-Halloween loss at Memphis.
Marc Gasol had 28 points for the Grizzlies (25-19). Memphis won the first meeting 112-103 in overtime by overcoming an eight-point deficit with 3:11 remaining in regulation. There were signs of a repeat even though the Wizards led by as many as 17. The Grizzlies roared back to trim the deficit to 97-95 with 2:34 left after Porter's back-to-back 3-pointers put Washington up 95-83.
The loss became extra costly for the Kings when forward Rudy Gay went down late in the third quarter with what was believed to be a torn left Achilles tendon. An MRI exam scheduled for Thursday is expected to confirm the diagnosis.
Al Jefferson contributed a season-high 20 points, and the Pacers won for the seventh time in eight games but for only the sixth time in 20 tries on the road.
OAKLAND, Calif. -- Kevin Durant terrorized his former team for the second straight time, pouring in a season-high 40 points in Golden State's victory over Oklahoma City.
Durant, who left the Thunder as a free agent in the offseason and dropped 39 points on them in their first head-to-head in November, contributed 13 points to a third-quarter flurry as the Warriors exploded into a 93-78 lead after having been tied at 56-all at halftime.
Durant's big scoring night, the 47th 40-point game of his career, helped the Warriors overcome Thunder guard Russell Westbrook's 21st triple-double of the season.
BOSTON -- Derrick Rose scored 12 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter as New York pulled away late in a win over Boston.
Rose matched his highest scoring output since the Knicks picked him up last summer and helped New York to just its third win in the month of January.
Mindaugas Kuzminskas and Willy Hernangomez added 17 points apiece for the Knicks, who had lost their last four against the Celtics. Hernangomez also pulled down 11 rebounds and Rose had 10 boards as New York outrebounded Boston 57-33. Isaiah Thomas scored 39 to lead Boston.
Philadelphia 76ers 94, Toronto Raptors 89
PHILADELPHIA -- Joel Embiid had 26 points and T.J. McConnell scored four critical points in a pivotal 7-0 run late in the game as Philadelphia beat Toronto, ending a 14-game losing streak to the Raptors.
Ersan Ilyasova added 18 points for Philadelphia, which last beat Toronto on Jan. 18, 2013. The Sixers also won for the fifth time in six games and the seventh time in nine.
DeMar DeRozan had 25 points and Kyle Lowry added 24 for Toronto, which saw a four-game winning streak snapped. Jonas Valanciunas finished with 10 points and 16 rebounds.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Charlotte would have been happy with any kind of win, and it got it in the form of a victory over Portland.
But this wasn't just the end of a five-game losing streak.
It marked a return to form defensively for a team that had given up more than 100 points in each of the last eight games.
The Hornets held the Blazers to 35.1 percent shooting from the field and forced 16 turnovers that they converted into 21 points. The Blazers were 8 for 31 from 3-point range.
New Orleans Pelicans 118, Orlando Magic 98
NEW ORLEANS -- Anthony Davis led six New Orleans double-figure scorers as the Pelicans defeated Orlando in the Smoothie King Center.
Davis, who left a 98-95 loss at Indiana on Monday in the third quarter with a sprained left thumb and a right hip contusion, scored a game-high 21 points.
Langston Galloway and Tyreke Evans came off the bench to score 18 each, Dante Cunningham had a season-high 14, Jrue Holiday added 14 and rookie Buddy Hield chipped in with 10 as New Orleans exceeded its season high for points in a regulation game. Elfrid Payton and Aaron Gordon led the Magic with 14 points each.
The Rockets broke open a tight contest with four consecutive 3-pointers in the fourth quarter, extending a seven-point lead to a 98-79 cushion when Gordon sank a trey. Trevor Ariza began the surge before Harden hit two 3-pointers.
Gordon, who added another 3-pointer with just over three minutes left, had 25 points on 7-for-17 3-point shooting off the bench. He was 9 of 20 from the floor overall. Harden contributed 38 points, eight assists and six rebounds.
Playing their first game since a five-game West Coast trip, the Pistons never trailed as they opened up a 30-point lead in the opening half. Pistons forward Tobias Harris supplied 19 points and Marcus Morris racked up 14 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists.
