NEW YORK — Kyrie Irving had 27 points and nine assists, James Harden scored 20 points and the Nets extended their longest winning streak since moving to Brooklyn to eight games with a 129-92 rout of the Orlando Magic on Thursday night.

The Nets have the longest current winning streak in the NBA and their longest since a franchise record-tying 14-game run late in the 2005-06 season. They moved from New Jersey to Brooklyn in 2012.

This roll has come almost entirely without Kevin Durant, who missed his sixth straight game because of a strained left hamstring.

76ERS 111, PACERS 97: Joel Embiid had 23 points and nine rebounds, Ben Simmons scored 15 points and Philadelphia won at home.

Luka Doncic scored 19 points for the Mavericks.

KNICKS 140, KINGS 121: Immanuel Quickley scored 18 of his 25 points in the first half, and Julius Randle had 21 points and 14 rebounds to power New York past visiting Sacramento.

De’Aaron Fox scored 29 points for the Kings, and Harrison Barnes finished with 22.

GRIZZLIES 122, CLIPPERS 94: Tyus Jones scored a career-high 20 points as Memphis beat visiting Los Angeles.


TIMBERWOLVES: Shooting guard Malik Beasley has been suspended for 12 games without pay by the NBA for his recent guilty plea to a felony charge of threats of violence.

Beasley, in his fifth NBA season, is averaging a career-best 20.5 points.

He was sentenced earlier this month to 120 days in jail for the Sept. 26 incident, when he pointed a rifle outside his home in suburban Minneapolis at a family on a house-hunting tour. Police later found weapons and marijuana in the home.
