DALLAS (AP) -Welcome back Jason Kidd.
In his first home game with the Dallas Mavericks in more than 11 years, Kidd had 11 points, nine rebounds and eight assists in a 102-94 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Monday night.
Dirk Nowitzki scored 29 points for the Mavericks, who never trailed after Kidd had an assist on Josh Howard's 3-pointer that opened the scoring a minute into the game and won their 11th straight home game.
Kidd came up short of his 100th career triple-double, but was involved in significant plays throughout the game as Chicago kept coming back from double-digit deficit.
After Ben Gordon's 3-pointer got the Bulls within 86-77, Kidd saved a loose ball on the Dallas end and got it to Nowitzki for a 3-pointer with about 5 minutes left.
Gordon had 25 points to lead five Chicago players in double figures. Drew Gooden had 17 and Larry Hughes had 14. Luol Deng and Thabo Sefolosha were the only Bulls starters in double figures, with 10 points apiece.
Wizards 95, Hornets 92
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - DeShawn Stevenson drained a fadeaway 3-pointer at the buzzer and Washington handed the Hornets their third straight loss.
Stevenson's buzzer beater capped a career night for the Wizards guard as he scored 33 points. Brendan Haywood and reserve Roger Mason scored 12 points apiece.
Chris Paul scored 22 for New Orleans.
Spurs 89, Hawks 74
SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Tim Duncan had 23 points and 10 rebounds and San Antonio earned its sixth straight win.
Tony Parker added 15 points and nine assists and Manu Ginobili scored 13 for the Spurs.
Joe Johnson scored 17 points for the Hawks, who have dropped two in a row, and reserve Zaza Pachulia tied his season high with 14 points. Rookie Al Horford added 12 points and 13 rebounds.
The Spurs have lost just five games at home this year and their six straight wins are their most in a row this season.
Raptors 102, Pacers 98
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Chris Bosh had 24 points and 10 rebounds to lead Toronto to the win.
Carlos Delfino scored 23 points and made six of seven 3-pointers, and T.J. Ford added 16 points and seven assists for the Raptors, who have won all three meetings with the Pacers this season and won four of their last five overall.
Danny Granger and Marquis Daniels each had 20 points, and Granger added 10 rebounds for the Pacers.
Indiana led 86-84 before Toronto went on a 13-2 run that included two 3-pointers by Delfino to take a 97-88 lead with just over 4 minutes to play.
