Sixers topple Orlando

Posted: Tuesday, December 23, 2003

PHILADELPHIA Glenn Robinson scored a season-high 22 points, and Eric Snow added 14 points and 14 assists to lead the Philadelphia 76ers to a 95-73 victory Monday night over the Orlando Magic.

Robinson bounced back from a 2-for-10, 4-point game a day earlier against Boston.

Kyle Korver had 16 points for the 76ers, who blew the game open with a 22-3 run in the fourth quarter. Aaron McKie had 14 points for Philadelphia, 9-of-20 from beyond the arc. Korver was 4-for-10 and McKie 3-for-5.

Jazz 92, Bulls 80

CHICAGO Andrei Kirilenko had 26 points and a career-high 16 rebounds to lead Utah to its 11th victory in the last 12 meetings with Chicago.

Matt Harpring also had a double-double, finishing with 15 points and 14 rebounds for the Jazz, who wrapped up a six-game road trip with a .500 record. They won despite turning the ball over 26 times.

The Bulls sure made it interesting, though. Trailing by 20 early in the third quarter, they went on a furious rally and cut Utah's lead to 79-72 on a fast break dunk by Corie Blount with 3:46 to play. But they couldn't get any closer, and were forced to foul the Jazz down the stretch.

Nuggets 106, Grizzlies 99

DENVER Voshon Lenard scored 24 points, Andre Miller had 21 points and 10 assists, and Denver won for the 17th time matching its total for all of last season.

The Nuggets opened the fourth quarter with a 14-4 run for a 95-84 lead. Memphis cut the deficit to four points with 1:25 left but got no closer.

Nene added 16 points and Carmelo Anthony 15 for Denver, which shot 51 percent compared to Memphis' 47 percent.

Pau Gasol led the Grizzlies with 24 points and 14 rebounds, and James Posey added 20 points.
