The 76ers, winners of 22 of their past 30 games, remained sixth in the Eastern Conference, a game ahead of Toronto and a game behind Washington.

SWINGS
New Orleans, which scored just 66 points in a loss to Utah on Tuesday, got 19 points and 16 assists from Chris Paul in a 122-90 rout of Minnesota on Wednesday night. The win gave the Hornets a franchise-best 55 wins, beating the record set in 1996-97.

SLUMPS

SIDELINED

SPEAKING
``It was quiet. Could you hear yourself talk? We're getting ready for the playoffs. I'm just saying I'm excited. I don't know if anybody else is excited, but I'm excited. I'm not waiting for next week. I'm trying to do it right now and that's the mentality we need to take, the whole organization, the whole building.'' - Toronto's Chris Bosh after a 111-93 victory at home over Milwaukee on Wednesday night.
