Magic's Scott Bombs Way To Trey Mark

ORLANDO, Florida -- Dennis Scott made a National Basketball Association record 11 3-pointers and Orlando won a franchise-record 58th game with a 119-104 victory over the Atlanta Hawks.


Brian Shaw, who shared the previous record on 10 3s in a game with Joe Dumars and George McCloud, got the assists on Scott's 10th and 11th treys Thursday night.


Scott, who made 11 of 17 3s and finished with 35 points, tied the record with 9:28 remaining. He received a standing ovation from a crowd of 17,248 when he broke it with 5:18 to go.


Shaw set the 3-point mark on April 8, 1993, while with Miami. Detroit's Dumars tied it in 1994 and McCloud made 10 3s in a game for Dallas this season.


"I was happy for my mom and a lot of the fans who've hung tough with me because I've had a very up-and-down career with a lot of injuries," said Scott.


Shaquille O'Neal had 22 points and 14 rebounds for the Magic, who built a 20-point lead in the first quarter and were never seriously threatened the rest of the way. Craig Ehlo led Atlanta with 20 points.


Bulls 110, Pistons 79. In Chicago, Michael Jordan got some rest and he also got 30 points as the Bulls improved to 71-9.


The Pistons, vying for the fourth playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, played without Grant Hill, who has a sore left foot, and Joe Dumars, who has an upper respiratory infection.


Jordan played 24 minutes, sitting down for good with 2:27 left in the third quarter. Dennis Rodman and Scottie Pippen, who also played 24 minutes, spent the fourth quarter on the bench with Jordan.


The Bulls are 39-1 at home, one victory short of Boston's regular-season NBA record of 40-1 set in 1985-86. Chicago plays Indiana at home Saturday before closing its season Sunday at Washington.
