ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Jaylen Brown scored 26 points and the Boston Celtics played solid defense in a 116-83 victory over the Orlando Magic on Sunday night for their season-best fifth straight win.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — No. 2 UCLA won the game on the scoreboard. Mick Cronin thought it was a loss.
With a heavyweight rematch waiting on the Las Vegas Strip, the Bruins' coach didn't think he got the full 40-minute effort he hoped for from his group.
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo had 32 points and 20 rebounds and the Milwaukee Bucks held off the Orlando Magic 117-108 on Saturday night to open a two-game set.
The teams will meet again Monday night in Milwaukee.
NEW YORK (AP) — The shots were not falling for James Harden on Friday, except when he was at the free throw line.
He was nearly perfect there, going 19 for 20 as he scored 36 points to lead the Brooklyn Nets to a 115-113 victory over the Orlando Magic.
NEW YORK (AP) — Cole Anthony had 15 points and 10 rebounds, Mo Bamba added 12 points and 11 boards, and the Orlando Magic rallied late in the fourth quarter to defeat the New York Knicks 104-98 on Wednesday night.

MIAMI (AP) — Jimmy Butler kept getting to the rim, and predictably, scoring suddenly became pretty easy.

NEW YORK (AP) — Terrence Ross scored all 22 of his points in the fourth quarter, and the Orlando Magic beat the New York Knicks 110-104 on Sunday night.
Ross was one of six Orlando players to score in double figures as the Magic snapped a season-opening two—game losing streak.
Cade Cunningham arrived at Oklahoma State as the expected No. 1 overall NBA draft pick and did nothing to change that in one season as the Cowboys’ floor leader.
He’s the headliner in this draft among the point guards and overall among all prospects, while Gonzaga freshman Jalen Suggs could also be a top-four pick after leading the Zags to the brink of an unbeaten season.
Jalen Suggs was the first athlete in Minnesota history to be named Mr. Football and Mr. Basketball in the same year, so choosing one sport to pursue in college was difficult.
