December 18, 2007

Grant Hill had 22 points and the Phoenix Suns handed the San Antonio Spurs their first home loss of the season, 100-95, last night.

Leandro Barbosa added 18 points for the Suns, who got a revenge win after losing a controversial and testy Western Conference semifinal series last season.

Tim Duncan led the Spurs with a season-high 36 points and 17 rebounds.

Hawks 116, Jazz 111 -- Host Atlanta overcame foul trouble, Carlos Boozer and five years of losing to Utah. Boozer scored a season-high 39 points and had 12 rebounds for Utah, but Joe Johnson scored 26 points to help Atlanta end a nine-game losing streak against the Jazz.

Heat 91, Timberwolves 87 -- Dwyane Wade survived a horrendous shooting night to score 30 points, Udonis Haslem added 18 and Miami finally found a way to win at home.

Pacers 119, Knicks 92 -- Mike Dunleavy scored 22 of his career-high 36 points in the third quarter, and visiting Indiana beat New York. Jermaine O'Neal added 22 points, two days after suffering a mild concussion in a victory at Miami.

Warriors 125, Grizzlies 117 -- Stephen Jackson had 28 points and 12 rebounds, and Monta Ellis added 23 points to help Golden State end a three-game road losing streak.

Mavericks 111, Magic 108 -- Dirk Nowitzki scored 11 of his 31 points in the fourth quarter and host Dallas shut down Dwight Howard for the final three quarters, giving it just enough to hold off Orlando.

Trail Blazers 88, Hornets 76 -- Brandon Roy had 24 points and eight assists to lead host Portland to its eighth straight victory.
