Chris Bosh added 20 points and Dwyane Wade had 17 for the Heat, who held the Knicks to 78 points in both victories over the last six nights.

Green showed off his entire repertoire during a superb fourth-quarter stretch that turned the game into a blowout and sent the Heat to their eighth straight victory over the Knicks, their longest winning streak in the series.

Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis each scored 11 points for New York in their third straight loss.

MAGIC 114, BUCKS 90

The Magic shot 52.4 percent from the field and limited the Bucks to 41.9 percent shooting. Tobias Harris scored 19 points for Orlando, and Evan Fournier and Victor Oladipo had 17 apiece.

Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jerryd Bayless led Milwaukee with 17 points apiece. Khris Middleton had 15.

The Magic made each of their six three-point attempts and 13 of 16 shots (81.3 percent) overall while blowing the game open in the third period. Orlando outscored Milwaukee 37-22 in the quarter to push a six-point halftime lead to 86-65.

SPURS 91, NUGGETS 80

In Denver, Colorado, Kawhi Leonard scored 25 points as San Antonio beat Denver for their fourth win in a row.

Tony Parker added 13 points and Jonathon Simmons had 12 for the Spurs, who were without Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili. The veteran stars got the night off to rest with San Antonio playing the second of three games in four nights.

Danilo Gallinari had 16 points for the Nuggets, who have lost five in a row. Denver have also lost nine straight to San Antonio.

THUNDER 103, PISTONS 87

In Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Kevin Durant had 34 points and 13 rebounds to help Oklahoma City beat Detroit for their fourth straight win.

Russell Westbrook, Serge Ibaka and Enes Kanter added 14 points apiece for the Thunder. In a matchup of the NBA’s top two rebounding teams, the No. 2 Thunder outrebounded the No. 1 Pistons 58-38. Detroit center Andre Drummond, who was leading the league with 17.8 rebounds per game, finished with seven.

Pistons point guard Reggie Jackson was traded by Oklahoma City last season after saying he wanted to be a starter, despite playing behind Westbrook. Jackson was booed loudly during pre-game warm-ups and was jeered most of the time when he touched the ball. He finished with 15 points on four-for-16 shooting.

In other results, it was:

‧ Clippers 111, Pelicans 90

‧ Timberwolves 101, Kings 91
