The Magic’s Dwight Howard, who has 28 points and 14 rebounds, looks to shoot against Drew Gooden during a 114-98 victory. It is Orlando’s fourth win over Milwaukee in a span of 22 days.

ORLANDO — Dwight Howard had 28 points and 14 rebounds and six Magic players scored in double figures in a 114-98 win over the Bucks on Saturday.

Jason Richardson scored 18, Hedo Turkoglu and Ryan Anderson 16, J.J. Redick 14 and Chris Duhon 12 for Orlando, which made 14 of 27 3-pointers.

Brandon Jennings led Milwaukee with 27 points while Ersan Ilyasova scored 18.

It was the Magic's fourth victory over the Bucks in 22 days. Orlando overcame fourth-quarter deficits during the first three but didn't need a rally Saturday.

Howard scored 12, including five dunks, as the Magic led 36-21 after one quarter. And up 85-80 after three, the Magic made 11 of 18 shots in the fourth.

Game highlights: Josh Smith had 13 of his 30 points and seven of his 12 rebounds during the fourth to help the host Hawks end the Thunder's seven-game win streak, 97-90. … Jordan Crawford scored 31 as the host Wizards ended a six-game skid, 101-98 over the Cavaliers.

The latest Linsanity? School yearbooks

The latest sign the Jeremy Lin craze hit new heights came last month, when someone posted on eBay a yearbook from the Knicks point guard's middle school. In it, Lin wrote, "Thanks for being my friend. Have a wonderful summer."

The asking price: $4,800.

That yearbook didn't sell. But for the past few weeks, various Lin yearbooks have appeared — and sold — on the auction site.

Don Chin, 48, of Eureka, Calif., said he sold a Palo Alto High yearbook from Lin's junior year for $450 and his freshman year Harvard yearbook for $400.

"I just bought some groceries and gas," Chin said. "And I thank Jeremy for that."

Around the league: Forward Lamar Odom, who missed four games due to an undisclosed family issue, played for Dallas instead of the NBA Development league as previously planned. Center Brandan Wright sitting with a concussion prompted the change. … Cleveland point guard Kyrie Irving played one day after sitting because of the flu.

  1. Rays let early lead get away again in loss to Angels (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — As pleased as the Rays were to win consecutive series against the contending Red Sox, Indians and Yankees and to get briefly back over .500, there was a lot of talk in the clubhouse before Monday's game against the Angels that it was time to do better.

    Tampa Bay Rays third base coach Charlie Montoyo (25) high fives designated hitter Corey Dickerson (10) as he rounds third on his lead off home run in the first inning of the game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Los Angeles Angels at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Monday, May 22, 2017.

    OF/DH Corey Dickerson missed out on a good birthday gift when AL player of the week honors went instead to Detroit's J.D. Martinez. Dickerson hit .385 with five homers, nine RBIs and nine runs; Martinez went .389-4-9-7 and got the nod.

  3. Rays journal: Alex Cobb learning to work with what he has

    Sports

    ST. PETERSBURG

    If this were 2012 or 2013, even 2014, RHP Alex Cobb would have problems. He would find himself working with only two of his three pitches, with the missing pitch being his trusty changeup.

    Alex Cobb, working mainly with his fastball and curveball, is 3-1 with a 2.78 ERA over his past five starts. The Rays right-hander tries to continue his strong stretch tonight against the Angels.
