Suns Have No Problem With Heat

• HAWKS 103, BUCKS 80: Tyronn Lue scored a season-high 18 points to lead seven players in double figures as host Atlanta snapped a six-game losing streak.

The Bucks' three-game winning streak ended in the matchup between last-place teams in the Eastern Conference. The Bucks were without starting center Dan Gadzuric for most of the game. He played only six minutes before he was taken to an area hospital, complaining of stomach pain.

• PACERS 86, GRIZZLIES 85: Jermaine O'Neal capped a 35-point game with two free throws with 4.6 seconds left to give Indiana its only win on a four-game road trip.

Memphis had a chance to win but Pau Gasol missed on a drive and the ball was batted around under the Memphis basket as time ran out, snapping the Grizzlies' six-game winning streak.

O'Neal, who was 12 of 23 from the field, grabbed 12 rebounds.

Gasol finished with 31 points and four blocks for Memphis. He recorded the 5,000th point and 500th block of his career in just 275 games. Only nine other players reached the milestones faster.

• KINGS 109, NUGGETS 100: Peja Stojakovic scored 27 points as the short-handed Kings extended Denver's losing streak in Sacramento to 17 games.

Kevin Martin scored 11 of his career-high 17 points in the second quarter for the Kings, who had just nine players. Chris Webber sat out with a sore left knee, and the Kings were without new acquisitions Cuttino Mobley and Michael Bradley after Monday's trade of Doug Christie to the Orlando Magic.

• SUPERSONICS 104, CLIPPERS 99: Ray Allen scored 31 points and Vladimir Radmanovic had nine of his 18 points in the fourth quarter in Seattle. The Clippers beat the Sonics by 30 in the season opener Nov. 3 at Staples Center.
