(Newser) – The best long-range-shooting team in the NBA outdid itself against Washington: Toronto hit 13 of 18 from behind the arc tonight. Those 39 points from three-pointers ended up being the winning margin—tied for the best in team history—in the 122-83 win, in which no Raptor had more than 19 points (Andrea Bargnani). Also in the East:

  • The Sixers thoroughly dismantled the Bucks, with Andre Iguodala leading seven Philly players with ten points or more in the 112-69 win.
  • After pulling within three early in the fourth, the Heat cooled off dramatically against the Magic, giving up an 18-1 run and losing 107-91.
