Seattle at Orlando (7 p.m. EST). Kevin Durant and the winless SuperSonics face the Southeast Division-leading Magic.

STARS
Monday
- Chris Paul, Hornets, made the tiebreaking layup with 2.6 seconds left and finished with a season-high 27 points, along with seven assists and six rebounds, in an 84-82 victory at New Jersey.
-Allen Iverson, Nuggets, scored a season-high 37 points and added eight assists as Denver won its third straight, 122-100 over Cleveland.
-Carlos Boozer, Jazz, had 32 points and 10 rebounds for his seventh double-double of the season as Utah routed Sacramento 117-93 for its fourth consecutive victory.

ONE-SIDED
Denver is 7-2 against Cleveland since Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James joined the league in 2003, following the Nuggets' 122-100 victory Monday night. The 122 points were the most Cleveland surrendered since allowing 120 to Philadelphia on Nov. 19, 2005, coach Mike Brown's first year.

SHORT-HANDED KINGS
Sacramento center and leading rebounder Brad Miller missed Monday night's 117-93 loss at Utah with a bruised right quadriceps. Forward Ron Artest served the final game of his seven-game league suspension after pleading no contest to a domestic violence charge. Guard Mike Bibby is out until at least mid-December with a thumb injury.

SIDELINED
Nets guard Vince Carter will be sidelined indefinitely with a sprained right ankle. An MRI on Monday revealed Carter sustained a Grade 1 sprain on Saturday night against Boston. New Jersey is 0-4 without Carter since acquiring him in 2004, following Monday night's 84-82 loss to New Orleans.

SPEAKING
``I don't know how we won the game. These are the type of games last year we probably would have lost. It tells a lot about the resiliency we have on this team. Chris Paul wasn't having one of his best nights in terms of taking care of the ball, but man did he come up with a big steal after turning it over.'' - New Orleans coach Byron Scott after a last-second, 84-82 victory over New Jersey on Monday night.
