PHILADELPHIA -- Michael Carter-Williams and Victor Oladipo gave the NBA a double dose of triple-double history. Carter-Williams had 27 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists for Philadelphia, and Oladipo had 26 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists for Orlando, the first time two rookies had a triple-double in the same game. After 58 minutes of hoops, Carter-Williams had the only stat that truly mattered -- the win. Carter-Williams had his first career triple-double, and Thaddeus Young added 25 points and 12 rebounds to lead the 76ers past the Magic 126-125 in double-overtime on Tuesday night. Carter-Williams got his 10th assist on a dish to Young late in the second OT to put the Sixers up 125-120. "Its not me versus Oladipo," Carter-Williams said. "Its Sixers versus Orlando. Its a team game. I just wanted to get the win." Evan Turner had 24 points for Philadelphia, which snapped a four-game losing streak. James Anderson added 19 points and Spencer Hawes 17. Arron Afflalo scored a career-high 43 points for the Magic and Glen Davis had a career-high 33. "Im upset we lost, but under the circumstances of how we were able to stay in the game, Im proud of the guys," Afflalo said. Turner was whistled for his fifth foul with 12.1 seconds left in the first OT on Afflalos 3-point attempt. Afflalo made all three free throws, tying the score at 118. The Magic fell behind early in the second overtime and the Sixers held on from the free-throw line. The Magic, coming off a 98-80 loss at Washington on Monday night, played without Nik Vucevic (14.7 ppg, 10.9 rpg) because of a sprained left ankle and point guard Jameer Nelson (sprained left foot). Davis stunned the Sixers with his first 3-pointer of the season, nailing it from the top of the key to tie the score at 104-all with 18 seconds left in the fourth quarter. He was 6 for 40 in his career on 3s and hadnt made one since the 2011-12 season. "He loves playing, he loves competing, he loves to win," coach Jacque Vaughn said. "Im going to spring for some ice for the ice bath and cool him down for two days from now." Afflalo sparked a rally earlier in the quarter, capping a 9-0 run with a jumper that gave the Magic a 98-96 lead with 2:45 left. After the Sixers grabbed a four-point lead, Afflalo buried his fourth 3 to make it a one-point game. Young scored for the Sixers, then Davis connected in the clutch. The Sixers stil had a huge edge beyond the arc, making 11 of 29. The Magic missed 20 of 26. "We pulled it out, and thats huge," Turner said. "The experience is great. Both sides have young teams. Im just glad we were able to come out on top. It was crazy." Carter-Williams first 3 of the game in the third made it 83-72, getting a rise out of the roughly 10,000 fans who turned out for this one. Carter-Williams was named Eastern Conference rookie of the month before the game, the first Sixers rookie to win the award since Allen Iverson in April 1997. Carter-Williams, the 11th overall pick of the draft, had already scored 20-plus points five times this season and helped the Sixers beat Miami, Washington and Chicago to open the season. He made 11 of 19 shots and chipped in three steals with a banged-up right knee against the Magic. The Sixers (7-12) have cooled considerably since their surprising start, but first-year coach Brett Brown has them playing hard and playing smart. As the NBA season tipped off, the over-under out of Las Vegas for total wins for the 76ers this year was 16.5, the lowest of any team in the league. They should top that -- and Carter-Williams is a big reason why the Sixers are somehow in the playoff mix. "We all played great," Carter-Williams said. Of course, an Atlantic Division littered with bad basketball and underachievers also has the Sixers in the hunt. None of the five teams in the division have a winning record. The Magics record would have them chasing first in the Atlantic instead of dumping them in last in the Southeast Division, well behind Miami. Afflalo was 14 of 27 from the field, made five of Orlandos six 3s, and was 10 of 11 from the free-throw line. "Its was a long game and, to lose by a point, that was a tough," Afflalo said.

After surprise defeats to Aston Villa and Crystal Palace in recent weeks, Chelsea again stuttered against weaker opposition, as Jose Mourinhos 77-match unbeaten home run as Chelsea boss came to an end in a major boost for league leader Liverpool. Chelsea could not hold onto its lead after Samuel Etoo opened the scoring, as Connor Wickham levelled from a rebound six minutes later following Marcos Alonsos long-range effort. Fabio Borini then scored from the spot after Cesar Azpilicueta brought down Jozy Altidore in the box with eight minutes remaining. Elsewhere, Crystal Palace claimed a fifth consecutive win with a 1-0 defeat of West Ham to secure its place in the topflight next season, and Swansea secured a vital 2-1 win at Newcastle that piled more pressure on Magpies manager Alan Pardew. Peter Whittinghams second-half penalty gave Cardiff a precious point in a 1-1 draw against Stoke, and Aston Villa could record only a goalless home draw with Southampton. Sunderland goalkeeper Vito Mannone made 14 saves as Chelsea blew the opportunity to dislodge Liverpool from top spot. The Reds will have the chance to extend their lead to five points at Norwich on Sunday. After holding Manchester City to a draw midweek, Gus Poyets players were again the party-poopers. The Black Cats took four points from their last two games and are just three points from safety. "With Sunderland this year, anything can happen," said Poyet, a former Chelsea player. With three matches to go and a potential title decider at Anfield next weekend, Mourinhos side cant afford any more slip-ups in its quest for a fourth Premier League crown. After Etoo put Chelsea in front, Schwarzer --who replaced Petr Cech after the Czech keeper was ruled out by a virus -- could only parry Alonsos effort away and the ball came back straight to Wickham, who made no mistake from the rebound. Chelsea players showed their frustration and midfielder Ramires hit Sebastian Larsson in the face with an elbow before Altidore went down under Azpilicuetas challenge.dddddddddddd On-loan Liverpool player Borini kept his head cool to score the resulting penalty "When I went to take the penalty I thought goal. Thats why we take penalties, because youre confident," Borini said. "We showed great character and belief." Mourinho and his staff were not happy with the referee after the penalty decision and assistant coach Rui Faria was sent to the stands. Mourinho had to drag Faria away from fourth official Phil Dowd as the hosts protests turned bitter. "His performance was unbelievable and when referees have unbelievable performances its fair to congratulate them," Mourinho said ironically about referee Mike Dean. "He came here with one objective, the objective to make a fantastic performance and he did that." Against Newcastle, Swansea striker Wilfried Bony scored twice to take his goal tally for the season in all competitions to 22 as his team moved six points above the relegation zone with three matches left. Newcastle remained in ninth place despite its calamitous run of five consecutive losses but fans are showing increasing anger, with growing calls for Pardew to step down as manager. In Cardiff, Whittinghams 50th-minute goal cancelled out Marko Arnautovics penalty -- the first spot-kick Cardiff has conceded this season -- that was converted during the dying seconds of an otherwise forgettable first half. Cardiff remains stuck in the relegation zone, two points adrift of possible safety. With its fifth consecutive league win -- a feat it did not achieve since December 1992 -- Palace is mathematically safe from relegation. But included in that streak is a 3-0 win at Cardiff on April 5, a match which is the subject of a league investigation: The Welsh club claims Palace obtained its lineup before the game. Tottenham kept its small hopes of a top-four finish alive and dented Fulhams survival ambitions with a 3-1 win over its London rival. Spurs are four points behind fourth-place Arsenal, though the Gunners have played one game less.
