CHICAGO — Joakim Noah had 13 points, 12 rebounds and 14 assists for his fifth career triple-double, leading the streaking Chicago Bulls to a 109-90 victory over the New York Knicks on Sunday.


Chicago had seven players score in double figures in its ninth win in the last 10 games. The Bulls also reached 100 points for the fourth consecutive game for the first time since Oct. 30-Nov. 5, 2010.


D.J. Augustin had 21 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter as Chicago (33-26) improved to 21-8 since Jan. 1 and a season-high seven games above .500 overall. Jimmy Butler scored 19 points and Carlos Boozer had 14.


While the Bulls are galloping through the weak Eastern Conference, the Knicks are floundering.


Magic 92, 76ers 81


ORLANDO, Fla. — Tobias Harris scored a career-high 31 points and the Orlando Magic beat the 76ers for the second time in less than a week.


Nikola Vucevic had 18 points and 17 rebounds for Orlando.


The 76ers’ skid is their longest since 1994, when they lost 15 straight, and includes a loss last Monday to the Milwaukee Bucks, the NBA’s worst team. The 76ers have the NBA’s second-worst record, while the Magic have the third-worst.


Thaddeus Young had 29 points for Philadelphia and Michael Carter-Williams added 17 points and 11 rebounds.


Magic guards Jameer Nelson and Arron Afflalo were out with injuries.


Pacers 94, Jazz 91


INDIANAPOLIS — David West scored 25 points, Paul George added 22, and the Indiana Pacers beat the Utah Jazz for their fifth straight victory.


Indianapolis native Gordon Hayward had 21 points and Derrick Favors scored 17 for the Jazz, nine of them in the first eight minutes as Utah opened a 14-4 lead.


Ian Mahinmi came off the bench to score nine points for the Pacers and provide key minutes, as Roy Hibbert struggled to contain Favors.


Raptors 104, Warriors 98


TORONTO — DeMar DeRozan scored 32 points, Kyle Lowry had 13 and the Toronto Raptors beat Golden State, their first victory in eight tries against Warriors guard Stephen Curry.


Greivis Vasquez and Patrick Patterson each added 12 points and Jonas Valanciuas had 10 for the Raptors, who had lost 11 of their previous 13 meetings with the Warriors.


Curry scored 34 points and David Lee had 20 points and 11 rebounds as the Warriors lost for just the second time in their past seven games.
