MAVERICKS 108, GRIZZLIES 88: Josh Howard scored 27 points to help visiting Dallas roll into the playoffs with a victory. The Mavericks, who will play Houston in the first round, closed the season by winning their last nine games and 13 of their final 14. Memphis, the Western Conference's No. 8 seed, will open against the top-seeded Suns.

ROCKETS 106, SUPERSONICS 78: With Tracy McGrady watching from the sideline, Mike James scored 24 points to help host Houston close the regular season with its seventh straight win. McGrady missed the game because of back spasms. The Rockets will open the playoffs Saturday against Dallas. The Sonics have lost eight of their last 10 games entering Saturday's playoff opener against Sacramento.

PACERS 85, BULLS 83: Indianapolis, Jermaine O'Neal and Anthony Johnson saved Reggie Miller's farewell party and made sure Indiana won't begin the playoffs in Detroit.

It was the final regular season game for Miller, who is retiring with 25,279 points in his 18-year career, and it guaranteed the Pacers the sixth playoff spot in the Eastern Conference and a first-round series against Boston. Had the Pacers lost, they would have opened at Detroit.

BOBCATS 97, PISTONS 86: Emeka Okafor had 16 points and 19 rebounds and host Charlotte closed out its inaugural season with a victory, snapping Detroit's 11-game winning streak.

• TRAIL BLAZERS 106, LAKERS 103: Travis Outlaw's layup with 7.1 seconds left sent host Los Angeles to its sixth straight loss in a matchup of teams that will miss the postseason.

KINGS 132, SUNS 107: Bobby Jackson had 15 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists in his first game in four months, and host Sacramento wrapped up its fifth consecutive 50-win season.

WARRIORS 106, JAZZ 89: Baron Davis had 23 points and nine assists as Golden State took a season series from visiting Utah for the first time in 11 years. Mike Dunleavy added 18 points and eight rebounds for the Warriors.
