BUCKS 105, MAGIC 98

MILWAUKEE • Brandon Knight scored 24 points and sparked Milwaukee’s rousing rally from an 18-point deficit with a dunk.

Knight confounded Orlando with a quick first step and threw down a dunk for a 74-71 lead with 10:57 left after Ramon Sessions went high for an outlet pass in the lane and patted the ball back to his driving backcourt mate.

The lead swelled to 95-81 with 2:49 left before Orlando mounted its own late charge to get within three off a 3 from Jameer Nelson with 35 seconds left.

But the Bucks hit their foul shots late and Orlando was hurt after Nikola Vucevic was whistled for an offensive foul with 22 seconds left.

NETS 101, RAPTORS 97

NEW YORK • Deron Williams and Shaun Livingston each scored 18 points and an ailing Paul Pierce hit a 3-pointer with 1:14 remaining to lead Brooklyn past Atlantic Division-leading Toronto.

Pierce finished with 15 points and Joe Johnson added 14 for the Nets, who won their season-high eighth straight at home. Brooklyn moved three games behind Toronto in the Atlantic.

Kyle Lowry scored 21 points to lead Toronto, which had won nine of its previous 11.

The Nets trailed 94-92 after Lowry split the defense in the lane for a lay-up with 2:15 left.

Brooklyn then answered with five straight points as Andray Blatche’s reverse lay-up tied the score at 94 and Pierce followed with a 3-pointer.
