ORLANDO, Fla.ó Ryan Anderson had 20 and 10 rebounds, Dwight Howard scored 25 and the short-handed Orlando Magic defeated the previously unbeaten Phoenix Suns 122-100 on Wednesday night.
Playing without injured Vince Carter and suspended Rashard Lewis, the Magic built a 23-point lead in the third quarter to pull away.
Nuggets 122, Nets 94
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. ó Chauncey Billups and Carmelo Anthony woke up the unbeaten Nuggets in a 44-point third quarter and Denver continued its best start since 1985-86 with a victory over the winless Nets.
The win was the fifth straight for Denver, one shy of the 85-86 start, and it handed the Nets their fifth straight loss, tying the worst start in franchise history, set in 1996-97.
Heat 93, Wizards 89
WASHINGTON ó Dwyane Wade scored 40 points, including a go-ahead jumper with 25 seconds left, to lead the Heat in a victory over the Wizards.
It was the first time Wade reached 40 points since getting a career-high 55 in April against New York. Quentin Richardson had 19 points and nine rebounds for Miami (4-1).
Wade took the spotlight away from Washington’s Gilbert Arenas, who scored 32 but was 9 of 27 from the field.
Pacers 101, Knicks 89
NEW YORK ó T.J. Ford scored eight of his 16 points in the final 3:12 and Dahntay Jones had 19 points and 12 rebounds for the Pacers (1-3), who came in as one of the NBA’s three winless teams.
Raptors 110, Pistons 99
TORONTO ó Andrea Bargnani had 22 points and 12 rebounds for his first double-double of the season and Chris Bosh added 25.
