ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — RJ Barrett scored 27 points, Obi Toppin matched his career-high with 20 and the Knicks proved their best odds as they routed the Orlando Magic 118-88 on Sunday night.
Toppin and Alec Burks scored 12 points each in a 37-point third quarter for the Knicks, who made 12 of their first 13 shots in the period.
Burks finished with 19 points and seven rebounds, and Immanuel Quickley had his first triple-double (20 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists) in 34 minutes off the bench.
Moritz Wagner led Orlando with 18 points and nine rebounds in the Magic’s sixth straight loss.
After Ignas Brazdeikis hit a three-pointer to put Orlando up 45-44 with 3:51 left in the first half, the Magic went more than seven minutes without a field goal.
Mitchell Robinson dunked twice on a 13-2 run that closed the first half with the Knicks up by 10, and New York scored the first seven points of the second half, the last two on another Robinson dunk.
A three-pointer by Miles McBride late in the third quarter gave the Knicks a 35-point lead, their biggest of the night.
