 CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -Jamal Crawford scored 50 points to help the undermanned Golden State beat the Charlotte Bobcats 110-103 on Saturday night, giving Warriors coach Don Nelson a win in his first game with a new coaching alignment
A night after Nelson announced he would no longer have anything to do with the Warriors' NBA-worst defense, assistant Keith Smart handled that part of the game, while Crawford handled the offense - and then some.
Acquired from New York last month, Crawford was 14-of-26 from the field, 5-of-8 on 3-pointers and made 17 of 18 free throws. He was two points shy of his career high.
Kelenna Azubuike added 21 points and the Warriors snapped a five-game losing streak with Nelson and Smart co-coaching the team. Golden State played again without top scorers Corey Maggette (hamstring) and Stephen Jackson (hand).
Gerald Wallace had 26 points for Charlotte.
Magic 106, Lakers 103
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Jameer Nelson had 27 points, and Orlando overcame Kobe Bryant's season-high 41 points for Los Angeles.
Bryant missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer that would have forced overtime.
in their sixth straight home victory, and Dwight Howard had 18 in his second game back from a knee injury.
Pacers 95, 76ers 94
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - T.J. Ford hit a 15-foot jumper with 3.9 seconds left and finished with 25 points for short-handed Indiana.

Andre Iguodala had 26 points for Philadelphia in its first loss in four games under new coach Tony DiLeo. Andre Miller had 14 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds.
