Orlando, Fla. — DeMar DeRozan scored 21 points and Jose Calderon added 15 points and 10 assists, helping the Toronto Raptors to an easy 123-88 victory over the injury-depleted Orlando Magic last night.

Rookie Ed Davis had 18 points and seven rebounds as Toronto won for the seventh time in eight games. The Raptors, who hit a season-high 15 3-pointers, got 16 points apiece from Kyle Lowry and Terrence Ross.

Rookie Andrew Nicholson led Orlando with a career-high 22 points. Arron Afflalo added 14 points and Ish Smith had 13 points and six assists.

The Magic played without starting point guard Jameer Nelson (hip) and his backup E’Twaun Moore (elbow).

Nets 103, Cavaliers 100

New York — Brook Lopez scored a season-high 35 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, and Brooklyn improved to 2-0 under interim coach P.J. Carlesimo.

Lopez followed his 26-point, 11-rebound performance in a victory Friday over Charlotte by shooting 13 of 20 from the field, making a number of timely baskets in the fourth quarter that the Nets ultimately needed to hold on.

Deron Williams and Joe Johnson each scored 15 points for the Nets, who fired coach Avery Johnson on Thursday and followed with two victories over losing teams. But now, they head off for major tests at San Antonio and Oklahoma City.

Hornets 98, Bobcats 95

Charlotte, n.c. — Eric Gordon had 24 points and seven assists, helping New Orleans overcome a 21-point first-half deficit and extend the Bobcats’ losing streak to 18 games.

The Bobcats are one game away from a winless December. They haven’t won since Nov. 24.

Gordon, who hadn’t played since April 22 following arthroscopic right knee surgery, was 5 of 13 from the field and 12 of 14 from the free throw line in 24 minutes.

Ryan Anderson had 19 points and made a pair of 3-pointers in the final period as the Hornets won for the second time in three games.

Hawks 109, Pacers 100

Atlanta — Lou Williams had 21 points and a career-high 12 assists, Al Horford added 20 points and the Hawks won their fourth straight.

David West scored a game-high 29 points for the Pacers, who had won four straight and seven of eight.

With Josh Smith, Atlanta’s leading scorer this season, unable to play because of a right hip flexor, Hawks coach Larry Drew started Zaza Pachulia, who responded with 17 points and a game-high 14 rebounds.

Indiana never got closer than three in the fourth quarter after Paul George’s three-point play made it 91-88 at the 5:18 mark.

Jeff Teague’s floating runner made it 101-90 less than 3 minutes later.

George finished with 18 points and George Hill added 15 for Indiana.

Hill started and played 33 minutes despite a sore right groin.
