Rookie guard Victor Oladipo scored 30 points, made a career-high 14 assists and pulled down nine rebounds to lead the Orlando Magic to a 129-121 double-overtime victory over the New York Knicks.

Oladipo scored eight points in the second overtime, including two three-point plays that won the game.

Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, who scored 44 points and had 11 rebounds, scored all eight of his team's points in the second overtime.

The Magic missed a chance to win at the end of the first overtime when center Nikola Vucevic missed a short, heavily contested shot just before the buzzer sounded.

Vucevic missed the final shot, also heavily contested, at the end of regulation.

Raptors 98, Cavaliers 91

Terrence Ross scored 20 points as the Toronto Raptors snapped the Cleveland Cavaliers' six-game winning streak.

Toronto improved to 30-25 for the season, while forward Luol Deng led the Cavaliers (22-34), whose win streak was their longest in nearly four years.

Bobcats 90, Pelicans 87

Center Al Jefferson scored 33 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as the Charlotte Bobcats beat the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Bobcats led by as many as 13 points in the fourth quarter but ultimately needed four free throws by guard Kemba Walker in the final 8.9 seconds to hang on after the Pelicans had stormed back to tie the score 84-84.

Mavericks 124, 76ers 112

Forward Dirk Nowitzki scored 25 points as the Dallas Mavericks rolled past the depleted Philadelphia 76ers, who suffered their 10th successive loss.

The Sixers, who made five deals at Thursday's trade deadline, had nine players in uniform but used only eight as coach Brett Brown left newly acquired guard Eric Maynor out of the team.

Pistons 115, Hawks 107

Power forward Greg Monroe scored 22 points and had 15 rebounds, one of four Detroit players to post a double-double, as the Pistons beat the injury-depleted Atlanta Hawks.

The Hawks, already with four injured players on the roster, suffered a further blow by point guard Jeff Teague's left ankle sprain.
