Not even Kobe Bryant could keep the San Antonio Spurs from making NBA history.
Tim Duncan had 28 points and 20 rebounds as the Spurs became the first team to win seven consecutive games on the road with a 103-95 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers last night.
Bryant scored 42 points -- his eighth straight game with at least 35 -- but it wasn't enough to beat San Antonio in a matchup of two streaking teams.
Shaquille O'Neal added 21 points but just five rebounds for the Lakers, who had their seven-game winning streak snapped and lost to the Spurs for the third time this season.
* PACERS 98, HAWKS 87: Reggie Miller scored 26 points, including a pair of three-pointers in the final minute of overtime, to lift Eastern Conference-leading Indiana in Atlanta. Miller's final basket, with 10 seconds to go, was his seventh three-pointer of the game. With 23,184 points, he passed Adrian Dantley for 16th place on the NBA career list.
"When needed, they always call my number, and I'm just glad I still have the grace to come through when they need me," the 37-year-old Miller said.
* WARRIORS 118, RAPTORS 114: In Toronto, Antawn Jamison scored 32 points and Jason Richardson added 25 as Golden State won in overtime.
"We're just getting a certain kind of confidence," Jamison said. "It doesn't matter who we are playing against, we feel we can compete against a lot of teams."
Gilbert Arenas had six of his 15 points in overtime, including four free throws in the final 20 seconds to seal the victory.
* NETS 90, BULLS 72: Kerry Kittles scored 21 points and host New Jersey broke out of its post-all-star break funk with a win. Richard Jefferson added 20 points as the Nets snapped a two-game losing skid and improved their NBA-best home record to 23-2 by defeating the league's worst road team.
The loss was the Bulls' eighth straight overall, their eighth in a row on the road and their 27th in 29 games away from United Center.
The Nets, beaten by Orlando and Memphis earlier this week, weren't overly impressive, but they didn't have to be in a game in which Chicago shot 33.3 percent, committed 23 turnovers and got 38 points from its starting five.
* TIMBERWOLVES 114, HORNETS 93: Kevin Garnett had 23 points and eight rebounds in three quarters, and Troy Hudson added 22 points to lead Minnesota at home. The Timberwolves hit a season-high 12 of 19 shots from three-point range (63 percent) in earning their 15th win in 19 games and 12th in a row at home.
"I got a couple threes to go down for me early," Hudson said. "I kept shooting until I missed."
* MAVERICKS 110, MEMPHIS 103: Dirk Nowitzki scored 31 points and Michael Finley added 29 and Dallas ended a three-game losing streak with a win in Memphis.
Nowitzki went 12 of 19 and Dallas handed Memphis a defeat one game after the Grizzlies ended a seven-game losing streak.
* SIXERS 99, MAGIC 98: Allen Iverson scored 20 points, including a free throw with 2.9 seconds left, to lead Philadelphia at home.
Derrick Coleman added a season-high 22 points and Eric Snow had 17, including four free throws in the final minute for the Sixers, who have won two straight since the all-star break.
Tracy McGrady had 37 points, including a game-tying three-pointer with 8.7 seconds left, and Mike Miller added a season-high 33 for Orlando.
"All of the losses are tough," McGrady said. "This is a loss that really hurts because this is a team we thought we could come in and get a win."
* BUCKS 96, PISTONS 86: In Milwaukee, Tim Thomas scored 21 points and the Bucks held Detroit scoreless for seven minutes in the fourth quarter en route to snapping the Pistons' six-game winning streak.
"They are known as a defensive team, but we can be a good defensive team down the stretch," said Milwaukee's Michael Redd, who scored 10 of his 12 points in the decisive fourth quarter. "That's the best we've played our zone, probably all year long."
* HEAT 94, ROCKETS 82: Caron Butler scored 24 points and Miami held off a late charge to win in Houston.
"Coach said for me to be ready to attack tonight," Butler said. "I got the ball and I took it to the rack."
* KNICKS 116, SUNS 115: Allan Houston scored 26 points and Kurt Thomas had 24 points and 10 rebounds to lead New York in Phoenix. The Knicks, playing the first of six straight road games against Pacific Division teams, improved to 7-14 away from home this season.
It was the Knicks' fourth win in Phoenix in six years and their first sweep of the home-and-home season series since 1998-99.
* KINGS 110, SUPERSONICS 81: Keon Clark had 18 points, 14 rebounds and 6 blocked shots, and Peja Stojakovic scored 24 points to lead Sacramento at home.
