TORONTO — Kyle Lowry scored a career-high 43 points Friday night to help the Toronto Raptors beat the Eastern Conference-leading Cleveland Cavaliers, 99-97.

Terrence Ross added 15 points for Toronto, which won its 10th straight at home to tie a franchise record previously set between March 24 and Nov. 4, 2002.

LeBron James had 25 points and Kevin Love added 20 for the Cavaliers, who had their lead over Atlantic Division-leading Toronto in the East cut to two games.

Lowry made it 97-97 with a hook shot with 51.9 seconds remaining. After J.R. Smith’s miss gave the Raptors back the ball with 28.9 seconds left, Lowry took his time before firing a pull-up jumper with 3.8 seconds left to put Toronto back in front.

WIZARDS 103, 76ERS 94: John Wall had 23 points and 11 assists to lead Washington at Philadelphia.

Jared Dudley scored 14 points and Ramon Sessions added 12 for the Wizards. Wall finished two rebounds short of a triple-double.

KNICKS 108, MAGIC 95: Carmelo Anthony had 19 points, 11 rebounds and six assists for New York at home.

A night after yielding 51 points and 10 3-pointers to Stephen Curry in a 130-114 loss to Golden State, the Magic were barely in the game after the first 10 minutes.

HORNETS 96, PACERS 95: Kemba Walker scored 22 points and hit the game-winning shot with 2.4 seconds left to lead Charlotte at Indianapolis.

Monta Ellis gave Indiana the lead with a layup over Walker with 16.2 seconds to go. Walker then split two defenders to get to the rim on Charlotte’s ensuing possession and sank a left-handed scoop shot over Paul George.

HAWKS 103, BULLS 88: Jeff Teague scored 19 points, Al Horford added 18 and Atlanta won at home to snap a three-game losing streak.

Paul Millsap had 12 points and 13 rebounds for the Hawks, who ended a four-game home skid – their longest since April 2007.


HEAT: Joe Johnson agreed to sign, a move that would give Miami a shooter it has craved for the stretch run.

Johnson could sign as early as Saturday when he clears waivers. The earliest Johnson – who was bought out by Brooklyn earlier this week – could play for the Heat is Sunday, when they visit New York.

PELICANS: Coach Alvin Gentry saids guard Eric Gordon will return from a 16-game absence Saturday night against Minnesota.

Gordon hasn’t played since fracturing his right ring finger Jan. 10.
