Cole Anthony fuelled a late surge as the Orlando Magic upset the Utah Jazz 107-100 on Sunday night.

Although Orlando threatened a surprise result early by jumping out of the gates in the first quarter, their hopes seemed to suffer a setback as the Jazz found their rhythm through the game’s middle stages.

Giannis Antetokounmpo led the way for the Bucks in scoring, rebounds and assists, finishing with 29, 18 and five.

Kevin Durant and James Harden combined for 59 points as the Brooklyn Nets beat the Toronto Raptors 116-103.

Durant made 11 of his 18 attempts from the field, including six threes, en route to 31 points and a fifth-straight win for the Nets.

Ricky Rubio scored a career-high 37 points to lead the Cleveland Cavaliers over the New York Knicks 126-109.
