Pacers blank Grizzlies in overtime
Grizzlies 76-86 Pacers (OT)
Shareef Abdur-Rahim scored all of Vancouver's 20 points in the fourth quarter but then he and his Grizzlies went scoreless in overtime as Indiana beat them for the 10th straight time.
Abdur-Rahim, who scored 28 points on the night, forced overtime on a long three-pointer with 21 seconds left in regulation but looked spent in the extra session.
The Grizzlies' failure to score in OT matched an NBA record held by seven other teams. The Los Angeles Clippers were the last team to be held without a point in overtime, against the Chicago Bulls in 1997.
Jalen Rose led the Pacers with 28 points, eight rebounds and six assists.
Lakers 109-100 Spurs
Kobe Bryant scored 15 of his career-high 43 points in the final 12 minutes as Los Angeles outlasted San Antonio in a meeting of the last two NBA champions.
The Spurs had scored 16 of the first 18 points in the third quarter before taking a 76-73 lead on David Robinson's dunk with 2:40 left in the period. But then Bryant took control.
Heat 92-94 Jazz
Karl Malone flipped John Stockton's missed layup back in with 2.6 seconds left and Miami bungled the ensuing inbounds play to help Utah complete a comeback from a 13-point fourth-quarter deficit.
Malone scored 27 points, grabbed eight rebounds and dished out five assists for the Jazz, who won their season-high sixth straight.
76ers 95-74 Hornets
Allen Iverson scored a season-high 37 points as Philadelphia rolled to victory over Charlotte, whose six-game winning streak ended.
It was the first 30-point game of the season for Iverson, who won the NBA scoring title in the 1998-99 season and finished second last season, averaging 28.4 points per game.
Iverson's newly unselfish play has helped the 76ers (13-2), to the league's best record.
Pistons 103-93 Cavaliers
Dana Barros scored 16 points off the bench as Detroit compensated for the absence of flu-stricken Jerry Stackhouse, the NBA's leading scorer, and defeated Cleveland.
The Pistons have won back-to-back games for the first time this season. The Cavaliers have dropped two in a row but held on to first place in the Central Division, percentage points ahead of Charlotte.
Celtics 98-102 Timberwolves
Chauncey Billups burned the team that drafted him for 29 points and Kevin Garnett hit a pair of key jumpers down the stretch as Minnesota held on for their fifth straight victory over Boston.
Billups, who spent his rookie season in Boston after being selected third overall in the 1997 draft, buried 9-of-14 shots and 9-of-10 free throws in 38 minutes.
Bulls 86-91 Knicks
Allan Houston's three-pointer with 36 seconds left broke open a one-point game and gave New York the win over pesky Chicago.
Kings 105-98 Suns
Chris Webber scored 28 points and grabbed 14 rebounds to lead Sacramento past Phoenix.
Raptors 104-95 Clippers (OT)
After trailing all night, the Raptors got a three-pointer from Alvin Williams with 1.2 seconds left in the fourth quarter to force overtime, then scored the first eight points of the extra session to defeat Los Angeles.
Magic 83-80 Nets
Tracy McGrady scored 11 of his 31 points in the fourth quarter as Orlando handed New Jersey their sixth straight loss.
Phoenix Suns guard Penny Hardaway has been named in a police complaint involving an alleged domestic dispute in which he pulled a gun, authorities said on Friday.
The alleged incident took place on 18 November at Hardaway's home.
The complaint has been turned over to the local prosecutor, who likely will decide next week whether there is enough evidence to charge Hardaway with misdemeanor offenses.
Both the Suns and Hardaway acknowledged the alleged incident in statements released on Friday.
"I am aware of the report," Hardaway said.
"The authorities are in the process of completing their work and I am confident they will resolve the issue in a timely manner."
Meanwhile, the NBA has suspended Toronto Raptors forward Charles Oakley for three games and fined him $15,000 for punching Los Angeles Clippers guard Jeff McInnis.
The incident took place during a warm-up on Friday at the Air Canada Centre.
And Sacramento Kings guard Jason Williams was fined $10,000 for making obscene gestures toward fans after Sacramento's loss in San Antonio on Wednesday.
