 SCOREBOARD
Wednesday, Feb. 19
Denver at Philadelphia (7 p.m. EST). The 76ers have climbed back into the playoff race after a slow start, winning 14 of their last 18 games. The Nuggets have a 3 1/2-game lead in the Northwest Division.

STARS
Tuesday
-Dwight Howard, Magic, had a career-high 45 points to go with 19 rebounds and eight blocks in Orlando's 107-102 win over Charlotte.
-Nate Robinson, Knicks, had 32 points and 10 rebounds to lead New York to a 112-107 overtime victory over San Antonio.
-Antawn Jamison, Wizards, had 29 points and 11 rebounds in Washington's 111-103 win over Minnesota.
-Richard Jefferson, Bucks, scored 29 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to lead Milwaukee to a 92-86 victory at Detroit.

STRONG IN DEFEAT
Kevin Durant followed an All-Star weekend to remember with a career-high 47 points, but Chris Paul's driving layup in the closing seconds gave New Orleans a 100-98 win over Oklahoma City. Durant had scored a record 46 points in the Rookie Challenge game last year and won the inaugural HORSE competition during All-Star festivities in Phoenix over the weekend.

G GUY
Andrei Kirilenko returned from an ankle injury to spark a key fourth-quarter run and help the Utah Jazz beat the Memphis Grizzlies 117-99 Tuesday night. C.J. Miles scored 24 points and Deron Williams had 20 points and 15 assists. Kirilenko finished with 14 points.

SO FAR, SO GOOD
The Phoenix Suns looked like a different team in interim coach Alvin Gentry's debut, routing the Los Angeles Clippers 140-100 Tuesday night. Leandro Barbosa scored 24 points and Amare Stoudemire added 23 for the Suns, who had 81 points by halftime in their first game since Terry Porter was fired as coach.

SWAPS
The Thunder acquired center Tyson Chandler from New Orleans in a deal that sends veterans Joe Smith and Chris Wilcox to the Hornets. For New Orleans, the trade provides an opportunity to shed salary in an uncertain economy by adding two contracts that expire at the end of the season. ... The Sacramento Kings acquired veteran guard Sam Cassell from Boston for a conditional second-round draft pick in 2015. The 39-year-old Cassell hasn't played this season for the Celtics, who acquired him in early March before their run to the NBA title.

MISFIRING
weeks, a year after going 34-7 at home.

SPEAKING
``I am so tired. But today is a triple joy. I came back from my injury, we win and I have a birthday.'' - Utah's Andrei Kirilenko after returning ahead of schedule from Jan. 30 surgery to remove bone fragments from his injured right ankle. Utah beat Memphis 117-99.
