  • NEW YORK — New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony and three others were thrown out of a foul-filled game, and Chicago beat New York 110-106 on Friday for the second time this season.
    New York center Tyson Chandler and Bulls counterpart Joakim Noah were tossed after a fourth-quarter altercation, shortly after Knicks coach Mike Woodson had been ejected following his second technical. He drew a loud ovation during his walk to the locker room from fans who angrily booed the officiating for much of the second half.
    Luol Deng had season highs of 29 points and 13 rebounds for the Bulls despite briefly leaving the game with an injured left shoulder. Marco Belinelli added 22 points as Chicago won for the fourth time in five games.
    Anthony finished with 29 points on 10-of-25 shooting, ending his streak of four straight 30-point games.
    Clippers 97, Kings 85
    At Los Angeles, Chris Paul had 24 points and 13 assists to help the Los Angeles Clippers break a 38-year-old franchise record with their 12th consecutive victory.
    The previous mark was set by the Buffalo Braves during the 1974-75 season, when current Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro was 8. That team won 49 games, still a record for a beleaguered organization that has called three cities home.
    Warriors 115, Bobcats 100
    At Oakland, Calif., David Lee had 23 points, 11 rebounds and a career-high 11 assists, Stephen Curry set a career high with eight 3-pointers and Golden State extended Charlotte's losing streak to 14 games.
    Klay Thompson added 20 points, and Carl Landry and Draymond Green had 11 apiece for the Warriors, who have won eight of 10. Golden State led by double digits the entire second half and never trailed following a 14-3 run late in the first quarter.
    76ers 99, Hawks 80
    At Philadelphia, Thaddeus Young had 18 points and 11 rebounds, and Evan Turner scored 21 points to help Philadelphia topped Atlanta.
    Jason Richardson scored 17 to help the 76ers snap a five-game losing streak. Jrue Holiday had 11 points after missing four games with a sprained left foot. The 76ers held the Hawks to 39 percent shooting and outrebounded them 45-37.
    Bucks 99, Celtics 94, OT
    At Boston, Monta Ellis scored five of his 27 points in overtime, and Milwaukee beat Boston after blowing a seven-point lead late in regulation.
    The Bucks won for the sixth time in eight games, taking three of four against the Celtics, who had a five-game home winning streak snapped despite 35 points by Paul Pierce.
    Luc Mbah a Moute scored 20 points, and Larry Sanders had 17 and 20 rebounds for Milwaukee.
    Pacers 99, Cavaliers 89
    At Cleveland, Roy Hibbert scored 18 points, and Lance Stephenson added a season-high 16 to lead Indiana over Cleveland, which lost its sixth straight game.
    Hibbert didn't have to deal with injured Cavs center Anderson Varejao, the NBA's leading rebounder. Varejao missed his second game in a row with a bruised right knee.
    David West added 15 points and 10 rebounds, and Gerald Green had 14 points — with a ferocious dunk — as the Pacers won for the fifth time in six games.
    Pistons 100, Wizards 68
    At Auburn Hills, Mich., Greg Monroe had 15 points and nine rebounds, rookie Andre Drummond added a double-double, and Detroit ended a six-game losing streak with a rout.
    The Pistons, who never trailed, got 15 points from Brandon Knight and 11 points and a career-high 14 rebounds from Drummond. Detroit hadn't beaten anyone other than the Cavaliers since late November.
    Kyle Singler added 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting to go with five rebounds — all offensive.
    Grizzlies 92, Mavericks 82
    At Memphis, Tenn., Rudy Gay scored 26 points, and Zach Randolph had 17 points and 13 rebounds to help Memphis win its fourth straight, topping visiting Dallas.
    Marc Gasol added 11 points and 11 rebounds for Memphis. Tony Allen finished with 10 points, but his biggest contribution was on the defensive end, holding former Grizzly O.J. Mayo, the Mavericks' leading scorer, to 10 points on 3-of-11 shooting.
    Raptors 93, Magic 90
    At Toronto, DeMar DeRozan scored 17 points, Jose Calderon had 13 points and nine assists, and Toronto won its fifth straight game, beating Orlando.
    Rookie Terrence Ross scored seven of his 13 points in the fourth quarter, and Alan Anderson, Ed Davis and Amir Johnson each had 10 for the Raptors.
    Aaron Afflalo scored 26 points, and Nikola Vucevic had 16 points and 12 rebounds for the Magic, who lost for the first time in five games. Gustavo Ayon had 12 points and 13 rebounds. E'Twaun Moore added 12 points.
    Spurs 99, Hornets 94
    At San Antonio, Tony Parker had 25 points, Tim Duncan had 15 points and 10 rebounds, and San Antonio beat New Orleans.
    Back home after playing six of its previous seven games on the road, San Antonio (19-9) got 13 points from Manu Ginobili and 12 from Boris Diaw.
    Rookie Anthony Davis had 18 points and 11 rebounds to lead New Orleans (5-21), which lost its 10th straight. Greivis Vasquez added 14 points, Ryan Anderson had 12, and added Brian Roberts 11.
