Kevin Durant scored a season-high 37 points and fellow rookie Jeff Green had a season-high 35 to lead the Seattle SuperSonics to a 151-147 double-overtime victory over Denver on Sunday night, damaging the Nuggets' playoff hopes. The loss kept the Nuggets in a tie with Golden State for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Warriors lost to New Orleans, 108-96, earlier Sunday.
Rodney Stuckey scored 19 points, Tayshaun Prince added 14 on 6-for-7 shooting and the Pistons secured the second spot on the Eastern Conference playoff bracket with a 91-75 win Sunday over the Heat. The top three spots in the East - Boston, Detroit and Orlando, in that order - are set, although it's been a foregone conclusion they would wind up that way for weeks.
ON THE BRINK
Travis Diener scored 15 of his 18 points in the fourth quarter, and the Indiana Pacers beat the Milwaukee Bucks 105-97 Sunday night to remain in the Eastern Conference playoff hunt. The Pacers trail the Atlanta Hawks by three games for the eighth playoff spot in the East with five games to play. Indiana hosts Atlanta Tuesday.
Chris Paul had 16 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Hornets tied a franchise record for single-season victories with 54 in a 108-96 defeat of the Golden State Warriors on Sunday. It was the fourth career triple double for Paul, who inspired boisterous chants of M-V-P from a sellout crowd that watched the Hornets win their 11th straight home game and fourth straight overall.
Tim Duncan had 27 points and 11 rebounds and San Antonio beat Portland 72-65 on Sunday, extending the Spurs' winning streak over the Trail Blazers to 12 games.
The New York Knicks snapped a five-game losing streak with a 100-90 victory over the Orlando Magic on Sunday night.
``I wish I would've been really shooting it.'' - Grizzlies guard Mike Miller after hitting a season-high eight 3-pointers and scoring 34 points in a 113-101 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday night.
