San Antonio 95, at New York 88: Tony Parker scored 22 points, Manu Ginobili had 17, and the duo made the key plays in the final minutes to power the Spurs to their eighth win in 10 games. The Knicks' David Lee matched a season high with 28 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, outplaying Tim Duncan (13 points), but New York still finished 3-2 on a five-game homestand, losing the last two.

at Cleveland 108, Houston 83: LeBron James scored 29 points, Mo Williams had 20 and the Cavaliers rode a stifling defense and a flurry of three-pointers to victory. Shaquille O'Neal had 13 points and 11 rebounds for Cleveland (24-8), which has won four in a row and nine of 10.

at Miami 114, Indiana 80: Dwyane Wade scored 25 points in only 28 minutes, Jermaine O'Neal had 19 points against his former team, and the Heat enjoyed its largest victory margin this season. Miami made its first eight shots and built a 66-44 halftime lead, its largest since January 2007, en route to its fifth win in six games.

at Toronto 102, Detroit 95: Chris Bosh had 25 points and 16 rebounds, and the Raptors extended their winning streak to a season-high four games. The Pistons had regulars Richard Hamilton, Tayshaun Prince and Ben Gordon back from injury but still lost their seventh straight.
