That turned out to be the winning margin for the N.Y. Giants.

Beckham’s 84-yard touchdown reception put the Giants ahead to stay with 11 minutes to go as they forged a three-way tie atop the NFC East by beating the Miami Dolphins 31-24 last night.

Raptors blow huge lead against Pacers

INDIANAPOLIS—Jordan Hill and Monta Ellis helped Indiana pull off a big come-from-behind win with hopes of getting the Pacers back to their winning ways.

Hill had season highs of 20 points and 13 rebounds, while Ellis added 18 points, as the Pacers beat the Raptors 106-90 last night to snap Toronto’s four-game winning streak.

“We have our ups-and-downs sometimes,” Hill noted.

It was Edmonton’s sixth-straight win.

Bulls back on track

CHICAGO—This time, the Chicago Bulls dug in.

They let a big lead slip away in the second half, but made just enough plays down the stretch to win a game they needed in a big way.

Pau Gasol scored 24 points as the Bulls beat the L.A. Clippers 83-80 last night to snap a three-game losing streak.

“We have an opportunity here to do something special,” Gasol said.
