DALLAS (AP) – Luka Doncic scored 27 points and Dallas drew two charges on Aaron Gordon in the final minute of the fourth quarter, helping the Mavericks hang on for a 107-106 victory over the Orlando Magic. Trying to protect a one-point lead, the Mavericks had two of their 17 turnovers on consecutive possessions before each of the fouls on Gordon. Nikola Vucevic was off target on a 3-pointer at the buzzer after two missed free throws by Seth Curry.
HOUSTON (AP) – James Harden had 36 points and 13 assists and the Houston Rockets routed Golden State 129-112 Wednesday night, sending the short-handed Warriors to their sixth loss in eight games this season.

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Kawhi Leonard isn’t healthy three weeks into the season, according to the NBA, which says that as a result the Los Angeles Clippers can rest their new superstar. He was on the bench against the visiting Milwaukee Bucks for a national TV game Wednesday night, the first half of a back-to-back for the Clippers. They host Portland on Thursday night, and coach Doc Rivers said Leonard would play.
EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) – The St. Louis Blues acquired forward Jacob de la Rose from the Detroit Red Wings Wednesday night in exchange for forward Robby Fabbri. The 24-year-old de la Rose had a goal and three assists in 16 games for the Red Wings this season.
NEW YORK (AP) – Two days into the free agent market, the players’ association already is angry at a club. Union head Tony Clark issued a statement in response to remarks attributed to Atlanta Braves general manager Alex Anthopoulos during a conference call with media. Anthopoulos mentioned “connecting” with other clubs to find out what their plans for free agency might be, and the union characterized his remarks as evidence of prohibited collusion. The union says it’s investigating the matter.

(high school football playoffs – quarterfinals)
REMSEN — Jeremy Koenck capped a nine play, 65-yard drive with a three yard run late in the third quarter to break a 20-20 tie and Jaxon Bunkers tossed a 34-yard TD-pass to Damon Brownmiller with 10:29 to play in the game as No. 3 Remsen St. Mary’s clipped No. 8 Fremont-Mills 34-20 Friday night in the quarterfinal round of the eight-man football playoffs. Bunkers scored the first touchdown of the night on a three yard run to end a 12-play, 58 yard drive for a 6-0 lead midway through the first quarter. The Knights quickly answered two plays after the kickoff on a 53-yard run by Seth Malcom for a 6-6 tie. Skylar Waldschmitt blocked a punt into the end zone for a safety with five minutes to play in the first half for an 8-6 St. Mary’s lead and Waldschmitt extended the lead to 14-6 with a 40-yard run on the first play after the free kick. Austin Jensen grabbed a 22-yard TD-pass from Bunkers with 54-seconds to go in the first half for a 20-6 lead at the break. Fremont-Mills needed turnovers from their defense to get back in the game after halftime and they got just that as the Hawks fumbled on the first play of the third quarter, setting up a one yard run by Seth Malcom to trim the St. Mary’s lead to 20-12. Colton Hauschild intercepted a Bunkers pass and returned it to the Hawks 21 yard line to end St. Mary’s second possession of the third quarter, setting up a Malcom-to-Cooper Langfelt 21-yard TD-pass to close the gap to 20-18 with 6:10 to play in the third stanza. A two-point conversion run by the quarterback Hauschild tied the game at 20-all. The rest of the night belonged to St. Mary’s who scored on back-to-back drives midway through the second half. Jeremy Koenck’s interception at the Hawks 20 yard line with two minutes to play sealed the outcome. Remsen St. Mary’s (11-0) travels to the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls next Thursday for a semifinal game against No. 4 Audubon (11-1) at 12-noon. The Hawks opened the season with a 26-25 come-from-behind win over the Wheelers. Next Thursday’s game will be carried on KLEM.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Jonathan Taylor rushed for a season-high 250 yards and Danny Davis ran for a touchdown and caught another as No. 16 Wisconsin outlasted No. 18 Iowa 24-22. Wisconsin stopped Iowa quarterback Nate Stanley short of the goal line on a potential game-tying two-point conversion attempt with 3:12 remaining.
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Parnell Motley intercepted Brock Purdy’s two-point conversion pass with 24 seconds left and No. 9 Oklahoma held off Iowa State 42-41.

AP Top 10 Games:
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Joe Burrow passed for 393 yards and three touchdowns and No. 1 LSU snapped an eight-game losing streak to No. 2 Alabama with a 46-41 victory. The Tigers are no longer second fiddle in the SEC West, or maybe in the playoff rankings.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Even without suspended defensive star Chase Young, surging No. 3 Ohio State routed Maryland 73-14. Young, the pass-rushing specialist, was held out while the university investigates whether a loan he received last year was proper. It hardly mattered. The Buckeyes, No. 1 in the College Football Playoff rankings, ran out to a 42-0 halftime lead and cruised from there. Quarterback Justin Fields threw three touchdown passes and ran for another score.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota’s Jordan Howden picked off Sean Clifford in the end zone with 1:01 left for the third interception of the game thrown by Penn State’s quarterback, and the 13th-ranked Gophers held on for a 31-26 victory over the fifth-ranked Nittany Lions for their first win over a top-five team in 20 years. Tanner Morgan passed for 339 yards and three touchdowns to direct a dismantling of Penn State’s staunch defense, as Minnesota remained undefeated.
