Magic stun Thunder; Pacers win

Tobias Harris slammed home a fastbreak pass from Maurice Harkless at the buzzer to give the lowly Magic a 103-102 victory over the high-flying Oklahoma City Thunder in Orlando on Friday night.

With the Thunder leading 102-101 in the closing seconds, Kevin Durant missed a jumper to set up the last-second play. Harris led the Magic with 18 points, followed by Arron Afflalo with 16. Orlando's bench outscored the Thunder's 36-23.

Durant led the Thunder with 29 points and 12 assists in the team's second loss in 14 games.

Pacers 118, Trail Blazers 113 - George Hill had a career-high 37 points, nine rebounds, and eight assists, leading Indiana over visiting Portland. David West scored a season-high 30 points and had 10 rebounds, and Paul Geoege added 17 points for the Pacers, who have won five of six games. Andrew Bynum joined the Pacers for the first time since signing a week ago, but he is not expected to get into a game for weeks.

Celtics 99, Kings 89 - Jared Sullinger scored a career-high 31 points and added 16 rebounds, and Boston went on a 15-0 fourth-quarter run to beat visiting Sacramento. Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley sat out for the Celtics.

Kobe's shoes filled

New Orleans forward Anthony Davis will replace the injured Kobe Bryant in the NBA All-Star Game in the Big Easy. Davis is averaging 20.5 points, 10.5 rebounds, and a league-leading 3.3 blocks. The No. 1 pick in the 2012 draft is also scheduled to play in the Rising Stars Challenge for rookies and second-year players next Friday.
