76ERS

76ERS: Derrick Coleman sat out a one-game suspension for an offseason driving while intoxicated arrest. He is expected to play Tuesday at New Orleans, and coach Larry Brown said he would make Coleman a starter if he objected to coming off the bench as he once did while with Charlotte.

Late Saturday

WARRIORS 135, MAGIC 92: Troy Murphy had a career-high 24 points and 12 rebounds, and Gilbert Arenas had 23 points as the host Warriors got their biggest victory in nearly nine years.

Jason Richardson had several spectacular dunks among his 18 points as the young Warriors reached a highlight of their rebuilding project with a blowout victory over the NBA's highest-scoring team.

With just their second win in 10 games, the Warriors also snapped a five-game losing streak against the Magic, who lost for the third time in four games. It was Golden State's biggest victory since a 141-95 win over the Clippers on Dec. 23, 1993 _ also the last season Golden State made the playoffs.

Tracy McGrady, the NBA's leading scorer, had 33 points before sitting out the fourth quarter. He made 16 of his 20 free throws, one shy of the league high this season, but Orlando was humbled on the second stop of a six-game road trip.
