Jameer Nelson added 15 points for the Magic.
It is the longest winning streak in nearly three years for the Spurs, who have taken a training-camp goal of a fast start far beyond what they had in mind. The Magic, meanwhile, were perhaps in search of a litmus test after just one of their nine wins this season have come against a team with a winning record.
The Spurs can thank their long-range shooting for keeping this streak going.
San Antonio made 12 of 19 from behind the 3-point line, including all five of their attempts in the fourth quarter.
Jazz 94, Kings 83
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) _ C.J. Miles scored 20 points and Al Jefferson added 19 to help Utah beat Sacramento.
After hitting five 3-pointers in the fourth quarter in a comeback win over Portland on Saturday, Miles keyed two runs that gave the Jazz their third win in the past four starts.
No team has won more road games (six) in the NBA than Utah, but the Jazz have struggled at home this season, a place they have rarely lost in recent years. Miles wouldn’t let the Jazz need any late-game rally this time as they grabbed the lead in the second quarter and never trailed again to move to 4-3 at home.
Sacramento (4-9) suffered its eighth loss in its last nine games after a promising 3-1 start. The Kings are averaging 90 points over that span after scoring 108.8 per game in their first four this season. Sacramento scored 27 points in the fourth quarter after the games was out of reach.
DeMarcus Cousins led the Kings with 18 points and Carl Landry added 12 points. Tyreke Evans, who scored a season-low nine points in their 75-71 loss Sunday to New Orleans, couldn’t find a rhythm and made just 3 of 12 from the field for 11 points with three turnovers.
Suns 123, Rockets 116
HOUSTON (AP) _ Steve Nash had 24 points and nine assists to help Phoenix snap a three-game losing streak with a win over Houston.
Nash played 37 minutes, showing no lingering effects from the groin injury that sidelined him for the Suns’ previous two games.
Jason Richardson scored 26 points and Grant Hill added 17 points, seven rebounds and seven assists for the Suns, who’ve won 10 of the last 13 meetings with the Rockets.
Kevin Martin scored 19 to lead the Rockets, who’ve lost four in a row. Houston played its sixth straight game without Yao Ming, who’s out with a bone bruise in his left ankle.View Entire Story
