at Utah 104, Phoenix 99 (OT): Deron Williams scored seven of his 21 points in overtime, and the Jazz blew a 21-point, third-quarter lead before tying it with a frenzied comeback at the end of regulation. Williams also had 13 assists and scored Utah's last four points during a 9-2 run to close the fourth quarter and force overtime. Mehmet Okur finished with 26 points and 11 rebounds for Utah, which won its 14th in a row at home.

at Charlotte 96, New York 85: Gerald Wallace had 23 points, nine rebounds and eight assists, and the Bobcats matched a modest franchise record for victories. Larry Brown earned a split in the season series with his former team, coaching the fifth-year Bobcats to their 33rd win in his first season to stay in the hunt for their first playoff berth.

at Miami 102, Milwaukee 85: Dwyane Wade scored 27 points, Udonis Haslem had 16 points and 12 rebounds for his 100th career double-double, and the Heat (39-34) moved a full game ahead of Philadelphia in the race for fifth in the East -- a crucial spot because it would ensure not seeing Cleveland, Orlando or Boston until at least the second round of the playoffs.

at Denver 129, Golden State 116: Carmelo Anthony scored 31 points as the Nuggets won their third in a row. The Warriors, who have lost four straight, probably will be without Stephen Jackson (toe surgery) for the rest of the season.

at Portland 86, Memphis 66: The Grizzlies have lost 10 of their last 12, six in row to the Trail Blazers, and were held to their lowest total of the season. Brandon Roy had 21 points and eight rebounds to lead Portland.

at Chicago 112, Indiana 106: John Salmons scored 22 points and made two late three-pointers in the Bulls' fourth consecutive victory. Danny Granger scored 32 for Indiana and Brandon Rush had a career-high 29, but the Pacers suffered their sixth loss in eight games.
