TORONTO — Bojan Bogdanovic had 27 points off the bench and Bradley Beal added 23 as the Washington Wizards snapped an eight-game losing streak against the Toronto Raptors with a 105-96 win on Wednesday night.

John Wall had 12 points and 13 assists for his 39th double-double of the season as the third-place Wizards took the first of a home-and-home series against the Raptors, moving a game up on fourth-place Toronto in the standings.

DeMar DeRozan had 24 points and Serge Ibaka added 22 more for the Raptors, who were again without Kyle Lowry following the guard’s wrist surgery that will keep him out the remainder of the regular season.

PELICANS 109, PISTONS 86: Anthony Davis had 33 points and 14 rebounds as New Orleans snapped a three-game skid with a victory over visiting Detroit.

Pistons 6-foot-11 center Andre Drummond was ejected for swatting at the back of the head of 6-1 Pelicans guard Tim Frazier – formerly of the Maine Red Claws – after Frazier had ripped away a rebound late in the third quarter. Drummond had 13 points and 17 rebounds to that point, but also missed 9 of 10 free throws.

Hawks 100, Mavericks 95: Paul Millsap scored on a drive with 30.5 seconds remaining as Atlanta held off visiting Dallas.

After Millsap’s basket put the Hawks ahead 96-95, Harrison Barnes missed a chance to put the Mavericks back in front. His jumper was off the mark with Kent Bazemore right in his face. Ersan Ilyasova was fouled going for the rebound and knocked down both free throws to extend Atlanta’s lead with 11.1 seconds left.

Heat 125, 76ers 98: Tyler Johnson scored 24 points off the bench and Miami had six players in double figures in a convincing win over visiting Philadelphia.

Wayne Ellington made six 3-pointers for 18 points for Miami, which has won 10 of its past 11 at home. Hassan Whiteside, Dion Waiters and Goran Dragic all scored 15 for the Heat, and Whiteside also grabbed a game-high 11 rebounds.

KNICKS 101, MAGIC 90: Kristaps Porzingis had 20 points and nine rebounds, and Derrick Rose added 19 points to help New York cruise at Orlando, Florida.

Facing an Orlando team adjusting to playing with a smaller lineup, the Knicks used their superior size to their advantage all night. Porzingis, who missed the previous two games with a sprained right ankle, presented matchup problems for the Magic when they attempted to put their big men on him outside and he took the smaller players inside.

NUGGETS 110, BUCKS 98: Nikola Jokic had a second triple-double in two nights to lead Denver at Milwaukee. Jokic finished with 13 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists for his fourth career triple-double – all in his last 13 games.


76ERS: Center Joel Embiid’s season is over because of left knee problems, including a torn meniscus that is worse than the team first thought.

Embiid hadn’t played since Jan. 27, and the 76ers had said in recent days that his return was likely later this week, but the problem was worse than had been thought.

WIZARDS: Point guard Brandon Jennings signed after being waived by New York.
