LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Frank Mason III scored 23 points in his final game at Allen Fieldhouse, Devonte Graham hit a series of crucial 3-pointers in the second half and top-ranked Kansas rallied from a 10-point deficit to beat Oklahoma 73-63 last night. Graham finished with 16 points and Josh Jackson had 11 points and 12 rebounds for the Big 12 champion Jayhawks, who trailed 54-42 before finishing the game on a 31-11 run.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Kevin Durant had 27 points and the Golden State Warriors overcame the worst 3-point shooting performance of Stephen (STEH'-fihn) Curry's career in a 119-108 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers last night. Curry was 0 for 11 from 3-point range, but the Warriors still improved their NBA-best record to 50-9.

CLEVELAND (AP)— LeBron James returned from a bout with strep throat and scored 24 points, Kyrie (KY'-ree) Irving added 25 and the Cleveland Cavaliers held off the Milwaukee Bucks 102-95. James missed Saturday's loss to Chicago but it was his dunk midway through the fourth quarter that triggered an 11-0 run that helped put away the Bucks.

NEW YORK (AP) — DeMar DeRozan made a turnaround jumper with 1.9 seconds left and scored 37 points in leading the Toronto Raptors to a 92-91 victory over the New York Knicks. The Raptors won their fourth in a row and learned earlier in the day that All-Star Kyle Lowry will have right wrist surgery that could sideline him the rest of the regular season.

UNDATED (AP)— Pittsburgh's Le'Veon Bell (LEH'-vee-ahn), Arizona's Chandler Jones and Carolina's Kawann Short didn't have to wait until Wednesday's deadline to get franchise tagged. The Los Angeles Chargers placed the non-exclusive franchise tag on outside linebacker Melvin Ingram. And a person with knowledge of the details says New York Giants have told defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul that he, too, will get the franchise tag.
