Pacers, Celtics in Playoffs; Duncan's Return Is Spoiled

The Rockets have already clinched a second straight berth.

• PISTONS 103, MAGIC 94: Ben Wallace became the fifth player in NBA history to have 100 blocks and 100 steals in five straight seasons, and six Detroit players scored in double figures in Auburn Hills, Mich.

Wallace joined Hakeem Olajuwon, Julius Erving, Sam Lacey and David Robinson as the only players to have 100 blocks and 100 steals in five consecutive seasons, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

"That's a nice list to be a part of," said Wallace, who finished with 9 points, 13 rebounds, and 2 steals. "It's good to have my name even mentioned with those guys."

The Pistons have won eight in a row, matching a season high.

• MAVERICKS 95, SUPERSONICS 90: Dirk Nowitzki scored 31 points to lead Dallas to its fifth straight victory and hand host Seattle its sixth straight loss, keeping the SuperSonics from clinching the Northwest Division title. Seattle needs one win or a loss by Denver for its first division title since 1998.

• NUGGETS 116, HORNETS 102: Carmelo Anthony scored 19 points to lead seven Denver players in double figures and the host Nuggets extended their winning streak to a season-high nine games.

Marcus Camby had another superb all-around game, with 6 points, 10 rebounds, 5 assists, 5 blocks and 2 steals. Earl Boykins played at his usual frenetic pace, and had 16 points and 11 assists.

• TIMBERWOLVES 116, WARRIORS 100: Kevin Garnett posted his first triple-double of a disappointing season, finishing with 21 points, 15 rebounds and 11 assists to lead Minnesota at home.

• BOBCATS 105, HAWKS 84: Emeka Okafor had 17 points and 11 rebounds in Charlotte to guarantee the expansion team of not finishing with the NBA's worst record.

The win was the 17th of the season for the Bobcats and moved them five games ahead of Atlanta (12-66) with just four to play.
