CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Bogdan Bogdanovic scored 32 points on a career-high eight 3-pointers and the Atlanta Hawks battled back from a 10-point fourth quarter deficit to beat the Charlotte Hornets 105-101 Sunday without Trae Young.

Clint Capela added 20 points and 15 rebounds for the surging Hawks, who have won six of seven to take sole possession of fourth place in the Eastern Conference. Brandon Goodwin added 17 points for Atlanta (29-25) in his third career start.

The short-handed Hawks won despite Young (left calf contusion) and reserve Danilo Gallinari (right foot soreness) sitting out along with John Collins, De’Andre Hunter, Cam Reddish, Tony Snell and Kris Dunn.

Miles Bridges led the Hornets (27-25) with 23 points, and Terry Rozier had 18 points.

BUCKS 124, MAGIC 87: Khris Middleton scored 21 points, Bobby Portis added 16 points and 10 rebounds off the bench, and visiting Milwaukee ended a three-game losing streak.

Milwaukee was again without star Giannis Antetokounmpo, but it mattered little, as Middleton shot 8 of 13 from the field and added eight rebounds and five assists to help the Bucks lead wire to wire.

PELICANS 116, CAVALIERS 109: Zion Williamson scored 38 points and Brandon Ingram had 27 points and eight assists, rallying visiting New Orleans past injury-plagued Cleveland.

Williamson, who scored 25 points in the first half, fell one shy of his career best of 39 set March 26 against Denver. He made 16 of 22 field goal attempts and grabbed a game-high nine rebounds as New Orleans pulled within one game of the final play-in tournament spot in the West.

TIMBERWOLVES 121, BULLS 117: Karl-Anthony Towns had 27 points and 12 rebounds, D’Angelo Russell also scored 27 and Minnesota won at home.

PACERS 132, GRIZZLIES 125: Caris LeVert scored 34 points, Malcolm Brogdon and Donantas Sabonis fell just short of triple-doubles and Indiana held on for a victory at Memphis.

Brogdon scored 29 points, matched his season-high with 11 assists and grabbed nine rebounds. Sabonis finished with 18 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists, part of the Pacers grabbing a season-high 53 rebounds en route to their third straight victory.

SPURS 119, MAVERICKS 117: DeMar DeRozan hit the tiebreaking jumper with 0.5 seconds left, giving him 27 of his 33 points in the second half and lifting San Antonio to a win at Dallas.

KNICKS 102, RAPTORS 96: Julius Randle scored 26 points and New York won at home despite blowing an 18-point lead.


NETS: Brooklyn signed Alize Johnson to a multiyear contract after the forward’s solid play during his two 10-day contracts.

Johnson has appeared in six games, averaging 7.8 points and 5.8 rebounds in about 13 minutes per game and shooting 65.7% from the field.

He signed his first 10-day deal on March 22 and two nights later had team highs of 23 points and 15 rebounds off the bench in a loss at Utah.
