Warriors 103, Magic 89

Led by backcourt mates Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, the Golden State Warriors rode a barrage of third-quarter 3-pointers to a victory over the Orlando Magic.

Playing without starting small forward Andre Iguodala (knee injury) and center Andrew Bogut (ankle inflammation), the Warriors went 6-for-8 from beyond the arc in the third period while extending a 10-point halftime lead to as many as 24.

Curry had 10 of his 23 points in the quarter and Thompson 13 of his 20 as the Warriors (43-26) completed their first season-series sweep of Orlando in 22 years.

Kings 117, Wizards 111 (overtime)

DeMarcus Cousins and forward Rudy Gay combined to score all but four of Sacramento's 17 points in overtime, and the Kings stalled the Washington Wizards' climb up the Eastern Conference standings.

Gay scored six of his 24 points in the extra session, and his 18-foot jumper from the wing broke a 111-111 tie with 37 second remaining.

Bradley Beal and Marcin Gorat each scored 19 points to lead the Wizards (35-31), who fell two games behind the Chicago Bulls for the fourth seed spot in the Eastern Conference.
