DALLAS—The Dallas Mavericks recorded their biggest-ever win by routing the winless Philadelphia 76ers 123-70 on Thursday, though the Sixers avoided their heaviest-ever defeat by scoring the last five points of the game.

In the day’s other games, Pau Gasol led Chicago to a win at Toronto, Memphis, came from 26 points down to beat Sacramento with a buzzer-beater, and Golden State had a home win over Brooklyn.

Dirk Nowitzki scored 21 points while playing only 20 minutes.

Chicago’s Pau Gasol had a season-high 27 points and 11 rebounds and Derrick Rose scored 20 points before leaving with hamstring soreness, leading the Bulls to a 100-93 win at Toronto.

The Bulls won for the sixth time in seven games and snapped Toronto’s five-game winning streak in the matchup of teams with the best records in the Eastern Conference. Both teams are 7-2.
