Behind stellar play from its All-Star backcourt, Washington handed New York its first preseason loss. In an in-state showdown, the Heat used a last-second defensive stop to earn a one-point win over the Magic.

The night closed with a 32-point Kings win over Israeli basketball club Maccabi Haifa and the Suns leaving ORACLE Arena with an eight point win despite some impressive plays from two-time MVP Steph Curry.
