ATLANTA — Kyrie Irving scored 43 points, LeBron James had 38 and the Cleveland Cavaliers set the NBA regular-season record with 25 3-pointers as they turned back Atlanta’s late rally to beat the Hawks 135-130 on Friday night.

After Paul Millsap’s baseline jumper over James cut Cleveland’s lead to 124-123, Kyle Korver – who was traded from Atlanta to the Cavaliers on Jan. 7 – hit the record-breaking 3-pointer to pad the lead.

Cleveland made 25 of 46 3s to break a record that stood less than three months. Houston made 24 treys in a 122-100 win over New Orleans on Dec. 16.

MAGIC 110, HEAT 99: Nikola Vucevic scored 25 points and Aaron Gordon had 21 points and 10 rebounds to help Orlando win at home.

The Magic beat the Heat for the third straight time to win the season series 3-1. Miami entered the night a game out of eighth place in the Eastern Conference playoff race.

76ERS 105, KNICKS 102: Justin Anderson made the go-ahead basket with 24 seconds left and matched his career high with 19 points in Philadelphia’s win at home.

Acquired from Dallas last week in the deal that sent Nerlens Noel to the Mavericks, Anderson hit his first seven shots and forced Knicks star Carmelo Anthony into 5-for-18 shooting.

Anderson and Anthony received technicals in the third quarter when they got face to face and exchanged words.

RAPTORS 114, WIZARDS 106: DeMar DeRozan scored 32 points, including a key 3-pointer late, and grabbed 13 rebounds as visiting Toronto won despite giving back a 19-point first-half lead.

Norman Powell added a season-high 21 points, including 14 in the fourth quarter, as the Raptors (37-25) pulled back into a tie with the Wizards (36-24) for third place in the Eastern Conference.

BUCKS 112, CLIPPERS 101: Giannis Antetokounmpo had 24 points and eight assists, and Milwaukee nearly squandered an early 23-point lead before finishing strong in a win at home.

Greg Monroe also had 24 points for the Bucks. They watched their early edge dwindle to 77-74 late in the third quarter following four 3s in the period by Chris Paul.
