CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Shawn Marion had 26 points and 10 rebounds to help Phoenix win a franchise record 28th road victory by beating the Charlotte Bobcats, 120-105 on Wednesday night.

The Suns are now 28-7 on the road, besting the mark of 27-14 set in 1993 and 1995. The victory was also Phoenix's ninth straight on the road, which tied the club record.

Pacers 100, Spurs 93

INDIANAPOLIS — Reggie Miller continued his late-season resurgence by scoring 21 points and becoming the 13th player in league history with 25,000 career points, and Austin Croshere added 18 points and four rebounds to lead the short-handed Pacers past San Antonio.

San Antonio (50-18) lost its third straight despite having five players reach double figures. The Spurs were led by Brent Barry with 17 points but clearly missed Tim Duncan who is out with a sprained right ankle.

Bulls 94, Raptors 85

TORONTO — Eddy Curry scored 16 points and Chicago beat Toronto for the eighth straight time.

Rookie Andres Nocioni added 10 points and eight rebounds for the Bulls, who have won three straight overall.

Knicks 107, Celtics 82

NEW YORK — The Knicks handed the Celtics just their second loss in 13 games since they reacquired Antoine Walker and held Boston under 100 points for the first time in seven games.

Walker shot just 5-for-20, Paul Pierce was 2-for-5 and Ricky Davis shot 2-for-10 as the Celtics shot only 38 percent, had their seven-game winning streak snapped and were held to a season-low point total.

Timberwolves 107, Hornets 102

MINNEAPOLIS — Kevin Garnett had 24 points and 13 rebounds and Eddie Griffin came up with some key plays down the stretch to help Minnesota hold off pesky New Orleans.

After New Orleans scored six straight points to pull within five in the fourth quarter, Griffin hit two free throws and converted a three-point play to give the Wolves a 97-89 lead with just over four minutes to play.

76ers 107, Pistons 84

PHILADELPHIA — Allen Iverson finished with 39 points and 10 assists, and Andre Iguodala had 10 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists for the first triple-double by a rookie in more than a year, helping Philadelphia remain in eighth place in the Eastern Conference playoff race.

Mavericks 109, Warriors 97

OAKLAND, Calif. — Dirk Nowitzki had 29 points and 10 rebounds, and Keith Van Horn scored 24 points in Dallas' victory over Golden State.

Clippers 116, Bucks 108

LOS ANGELES — Corey Maggette scored 34 points and the Clippers sent Milwaukee to its seventh straight road loss.

Elton Brand had 24 points and 10 rebounds for the Clippers, who nearly squandered a 26-point lead. Bobby Simmons came off the bench for the first time this season and scored seven of his 16 points in the fourth quarter.

Michael Redd scored 31 points for the Bucks, who have lost six of eight overall and are 0-13 on the road against Western Conference teams this season. Anthony Goldwire added 13 points.
