For Charlotte, Only The Best at Home

• PISTONS 105, CELTICS 99: Rasheed Wallace had seven of his season-high 31 points in overtime to help Detroit end a three-game losing streak.

Visiting Boston has lost consecutive games after going 11-2 in its first 13 games since getting Antoine Walker in a Feb. 24 trade with Atlanta.

• HORNETS 96, GRIZZLIES 85: J.R. Smith scored a career-high 33 points as host New Orleans won its first game against a Southwest Division opponent. Smith connected on 13 of 18 shots.

New Orleans had a 20-point lead in the third period -- its biggest lead in any game this season.

• MAVERICKS 117, CAVALIERS 86: In Dallas, Michael Finley is finding out that he can still be a shooter and a scorer in the defensive-oriented system of new Dallas Coach Avery Johnson.

Finley scored 26 points, making all eight of his three-pointers, and the Mavericks got their largest margin of victory this season.

"I put two hands up, blew on his face," Cleveland's LeBron James said. "But he was in a groove."

• BULLS 100, PACERS 96: Eddy Curry scored a season-high 27 points as Chicago, playing at home, won its fifth straight game. Curry was nearly perfect in the first half -- he made all seven field goals and went 8 for 10 from the foul line, for 22 points.

"I thought Eddy was really bouncing around well out there," Bulls Coach Scott Skiles said.

• NUGGETS 113, KINGS 99: Carmelo Anthony had 28 points and host Denver improved to 21-5 under George Karl.
