Franz Wagner and Cole Anthony each scored 30 points as the Orlando Magic extended their winning streak to seven games with a victory over the Charlotte Hornets.

Pep Guardiola has received another parking ticket.
"Guardiola went to Manchester city center to do some shopping over the holidays, but when he returned, he found he had been issued a parking ticket," the Daily Mail reported on July 27 (KST).
"In August, Guardiola was also ticketed for parking his car on a yellow double line," the report continued, noting that Guardiola has been fined for parking violations before, and showing a photo of Guardiola and his Nissan.
Guardiola's Manchester City hosted Liverpool on Nov. 25 in the 13th round of the Premier League (PL).

Soccer pundit Garth Crooks' best 11 from round nine of the 2023-2024 English Premier League (EPL) season is controversial.
After each round, Crooks selects a Team of the Week for the BBC in the UK. However, he is often criticized for his inconsistent judgment.
This round, he left out Son Heung-min, who had one goal and one assist in a 2-0 win over Fulham. In his place was Elling Holland (Man City), who scored one goal.
James Maddison, who scored the second goal for Tottenham, and goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario were named to the Team of the Week. Crooks' preferred formation for his Best 11 is a 3-4-3.
In the back three, Holland is joined by Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) and Brian Mbemo (Brentford). Declan Rice (Arsenal) in the midfield alongside Maddison. Douglas Luiz (Aston Villa) and Jeremy Dockoo (Man City). Diogo Dalot (Man United), Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool), and Kieran Trippier (Newcastle) in the back four, and Vicario (Tottenham) in goal.
More controversy. "Fans are convinced Crooks is holding a grudge against two clubs," the UK's The Sun reported on Thursday (ET) in an article explaining the reasons behind his selection. The two clubs are Liverpool and Arsenal.
Crooks focused on praising most of the players in the squad, including Maddison, Trippier, Luiz, and Conspiracy. Van Dijk, on the other hand, was quick to point out an improper sending-off against Ashley Young (Everton).
The same goes for Salah and Rice. The issue of referee quality was raised early on.
Social media is abuzz. Fans are saying things like 'Crooks is gritting his teeth and using this as an opportunity to snipe at someone else by choosing a Liverpool player in his team of the week', 'You can tell he hates the club', 'Crooks' moan of the week', 'Crooks has Rice in his team of the week because 90% of the time he's shouting at the referee. What a great guy," and "The reason Crooks is on the team of the week is because 90% of the time he's screaming at the referee.
This is not Crooks' first 토토사이트 controversy. Luton Town manager Rob Edwards was recently criticized for reacting to Crooks' "disrespectful" taunt of Donnum.
Son was included in the Premier League's best 11 for round nine. Heung-min and Maddison were the only two Spurs players on the list.
Nick Pope, Trippier and Jacob Murphy (Newcastle), John Stones (Man City), Luiz, Ezri Consa and Ollie Watkins (Aston Villa), Salah (Liverpool) and Chris Wood (Nottingham Forest) also made the list.
Aaron Ramsdale and David Raya are in a full-fledged competition for the starting job. And captain Martin Ødegaard is positive about it.
Arsenal earned a 1-0 victory over Everton in the fifth round of the 2023-24 Premier League (PL) at Goodison Park in Liverpool, England, at 0:30 a.m. ET on April 18. The win moves Arsenal to fourth place in the league with four wins and one draw (13 points).
Raya made his Arsenal debut in the last match against Everton, starting in goal. Up until then, Ramsdale had been in goal, and Arsenal were unbeaten with three wins and a draw. The decision to suddenly switch to Ramsdale was met with a lot of questions, given the strong start to the game.
Arteta spoke about the goalkeeping position after the game. "I've only been in this job for three and a half years, but I have very few regrets about my choice. I want everyone to be involved in the team, no position is special," he said.
Arsenal's first-choice goalkeeper, Ramsdale, is arguably the best goalkeeper in the game. His passing and ball-handling skills have earned him a lot of attention at the age of 1998, and he's been in the Gunners' backline since the 2021-22 season. Ramsdale, who kept 14 clean sheets last season to help Arsenal finish second in the table, is also capped by the England national team. He also started against Scotland in September during the A-match.
Ramsdale's arrival was a nervous one for the youngster, who had cemented his place in the starting lineup. Arsenal brought Raya in on loan in the summer transfer window. Raya, who had been the first-choice goalkeeper at Brentford, joined on a free transfer. The fee was reportedly €3 million at the time.
Born in Spain, Laya began his career at Blackburn Rovers, where he spent time in the youth ranks. Despite being rather small for a goalkeeper at 1.83 meters, he has good situational awareness and build-up play. He joined Brentford in 2019 and has been a regular in goal ever since. He helped them to a ninth-place finish last season, as they were promoted to the top flight.
With a year left on his contract, Raya was looking to move on. Tottenham and Munich were linked, with Arsenal 토토 showing interest. The Gunners brought in Laya with the intention of giving Ramsdale competition after backup Met Turner left for Nottingham Forest.
With the arrival of a goalkeeper who was already a first-team regular for a Premier League (PL) team, the competition was going to be fierce. "There is no number one in any position," Arteta said of Laya's arrival.
During the league break in September, Arteta had been struggling with the starting goalkeeping position. On September 6, the UK's Daily Mail reported that "Arsenal goalkeeper Ramsdale is in contention for the number one spot in the team. Arteta is believed to be giving serious consideration to giving Lallana a first-team opportunity in the coming weeks."
Sooner than expected, Lahaya got the start against Everton. Arsenal captain Ödegaard also shared his thoughts. "We have two good goalkeepers and it's a big competition," he said of Ramsdale and Lallana after the game. They have different qualities. We are lucky to have two such good goalkeepers. We'll see who plays, but they're both good."
Ödegaard added: "Of course, the competition is huge. You can see how we are in training every day. That's why everyone has to give their best every day in training," he said, adding that the competition is something to strive for.
