Utah 109, at Toronto 101: Deron Williams had 25 points and nine assists, Mehmet Okur had 19 points and 11 rebounds, and the Jazz won its 11th in a row, the team's longest winning streak since it also won 11 straight in April 1999. Chris Bosh scored 30 for the Raptors, who have lost eight in a row against Utah.

at Sacramento 114, Denver 106: Kevin Martin had 26 points, seven rebounds and eight assists for the Kings, and the slumping Nuggets suffered their sixth straight road loss, against a team with the third-worst home record (10-21) in the NBA.

at San Antonio 103, Phoenix 98: Tony Parker, averaging 25.6 points a game since the All-Star break, scored 12 points in the fourth quarter and notched his fourth 30-point performance in his last seven games for the Spurs. The Suns completed an 0-4 trip and fell four games behind Dallas for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

at New Jersey 106, New York 101: Devin Harris had 35 points and 10 assists, and the Nets ended a frustrating stretch of close losses. Vince Carter added 25 points for New Jersey, which had lost three of four, failing to pull out tight games against New Orleans, Boston and Orlando.

at Houston 93, Memphis 83: Yao Ming had 24 points, 17 rebounds and three blocks and the Rockets extended their home-court winning streak to 12 games with an easy victory as they head into a tough week that includes games against Denver, the Lakers and San Antonio.

at Oklahoma City 89, Philadelphia 74: Nenad Krstic scored 20 points and Malik Rose added a season-high 14 as the Thunder continued its strong play without its two leading scorers. Oklahoma City has won four of five without injured Kevin Durant (ankle), the NBA's fourth-leading scorer at 26 points a game, and three of four without Jeff Green (back).
