Joe Ingles has shared in a NBA record-breaking three-point fest as the Utah Jazz continue their romp toward the playoffs.
The Western Conference leaders romped to a 137-91 win over short-handed Orlando Magic behind a barrage of deep shots in Salt Lake City.
Utah's 18 three-pointers in the first half was a league record, surpassing 17 by the Golden State Warriors against the Chicago Bulls in October 2018.
The Jazz finished the game hitting 26 of 55 from beyond the arc, including multiple makes by Donovan Mitchell (6-7), Australian veteran Ingles (5-7) , Bojan Bogdanovic (4-6), Jordan Clarkson (3-6) and two each by Georges Niang and Ersan Ilyasova.
Mitchell top-scored with 22 points while Ingles and Bogdanovic each scored 17 as the Jazz won their ninth-straight game overall and a franchise record-extending 22nd in a row at home.
They improved their league-best record to 38-11 - which is 12-1 with Ingles starting.
"This is one of those nights for us where we played really well, and we played the right way," Jazz coach Quin Snyder said.
In Philadelphia, Joel Embiid was happy to be back on the court for the 76ers even if he wasn't thrilled with his game, which he says was hampered by a knee brace.
Embiid had 24 points and eight rebounds in his return to the line-up as 32 points from Tobias Harris led the hosts to a 122-113 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Embiid missed the previous 10 games due to a bone bruise in his left knee.
"It felt great," he said.
"Just trying to get my rhythm back. I'm going to blame the brace I was wearing.
"I just felt like I didn't have my rhythm all game. It felt like I wasn't smooth. I hate the brace."
Ben Simmons added 14 points, eight rebounds and six assists for Philadelphia (34-15), who pulled even with the idle Brooklyn Nets for the best record in the Eastern Conference.
Karl-Anthony Towns had 39 points, 14 rebounds and five assists for the Timberwolves, who have the worst record in the NBA at 12-38.
It's been tough going of late for the San Antonio Spurs who lost 139-133 in overtime to the visiting Indiana Pacers.
The Spurs, who led by 10 points early in the game, are 2-6 in their nine-game home stand yet cling on to the eight seed in the west.
Caris LeVert scored 26 points for the short-handed Pacers, who snapped a three-game losing streak, while Spurs veteran DeMar DeRozan had 25 points for his 450th career game with at least 20 points.
Australian guard Patty Mills ignited the hosts off the bench with 13 of his 16 points coming in the first half.
In addition to Utah's 46-point blow-out win on Saturday, the Portland Trail Blazers annihilated the Oklahoma City Thunder 133-85 and the New York Knicks' routed the Detroit Pistons 125-81.
