NBA scores, highlights, results: Magic upset Kawhi Leonard-less Raptors; Knicks snap 18-game home losing streak

There were only three games of NBA action on Sunday, and unfortunately none of them were very close.  

To start the day, the Magic upset the Raptors in Toronto to pick up a big win in their quest for the playoffs. It should be noted, though, that the Raptors were playing without Kawhi Leonard

Next up was the Clippers' trip to Denver to take on the Nuggets, which on paper should have been the game of the day. The Nuggets dominated this game though, going on to win by 27 points. 

Finally, to close the night, the Knicks held off the Spurs thanks to some strong play from their youngsters. It was the Knicks' first win at home since Dec. 1, snapping an 18-game losing streak at Madison Square Garden.

Jokic shows off his passing ability

Nikola Jokic is over seven feet tall, but he passes like a point guard. He showed off his passing skills once again during the Nuggets' win over the Clippers, tossing a nifty overheard feed to Gary Harris. Jokic didn't get an assist on this play, and only had three on the night, but did add 22 points and 16 rebounds in the Nuggets' win. 

DSJ goes off glass to Robinson

Dennis Smith Jr. and Mitchell Robinson combined to put an exclamation point on the Knicks' first win at home since Dec. 1. Out on the break in the closing seconds, DSJ threw it off the glass to Robinson, who obliged with a big slam. 

Ross comes up clutch for the Magic

The Magic got a big win on Sunday afternoon, taking down the Raptors up in Toronto. Now 8-2 in their last 10 games, they're just one game back of the Hornets for the eighth spot in the East. Leading the way against the Raptors was Terrence Ross, who scored 11 of his 28 points in the fourth quarter.

Knox and Robinson connect on back-to-back slams

Two members of the Knicks' rookie class showed off their chemistry against the Spurs. First, Kevin Knox found Mitchell Robinson for an alley-oop, then Robinson returned the favor with a nice feed to Knox for a slam. 

Harrell rocks the rim

Montrezl Harrell has been a revelation for the Clippers this season. He's a hard worker and has tremendous athleticism, which allows him to make plays like this. 

Isaac soars for the oop

Jonathan Isaac has been playing some strong basketball as of late, and he kept that up on Sunday against the Raptors. The highlight of his day was easily this big alley-oop out on the fastbreak. 

Plumlee goes glass

Mason Plumlee isn't really a 3-point shooter, but he fired one up against the Clippers and got it to go thanks to the backboard.
