NBA Headline News

 SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Tony Parker scored 30 points, Tim Duncan had 27 points and 15 rebounds, and the San Antonio Spurs shook off a ``disappointing'' $250,000 fine by the NBA to beat the Memphis Grizzlies 99-95 in overtime Saturday night.
Coach Gregg Popovich said before the win he doesn't know if the Spurs will appeal the NBA's stiff penalty for sending Duncan, Parker and two others home to rest Thursday instead of them suiting up against the Miami Heat in a nationally televised game.
Popovich said he was disappointed by Commissioner David Stern's decision. He also didn't rule out sitting out players again in the future.
Marc Gasol led Memphis with 20 points. Zach Randolph had 17 points and 15 rebounds and was one of three Memphis players with double-doubles.
Mike Conley had 18 points and 12 assists, and Rudy Gay had 15 points and 10 rebounds.
The unprecedented fine announced Friday overshadowed the first meeting this season between two of the West's winningest teams.
HEAT 102, NETS 89
MIAMI (AP) - Dwyane Wade scored a season-high 34 points, LeBron James added 21 points and Miami rallied from a 14-point deficit to beat Brooklyn.

Andray Blatche scored 20 points for Brooklyn, which had won five in a row. Gerald Wallace had 13 points, Joe Johnson added 12 and Deron Williams finished with 10 points and 12 assists.

TRAIL BLAZERS 118, CAVALIERS 117, 2OT
CLEVELAND (AP) - Nicolas Batum's 3-pointer with 0.2 seconds left in the second overtime gave Portland a victory over Cleveland.
Trailing 117-115 with 2.5 seconds remaining, Portland called timeout and inbounded near midcourt. Damian Lillard passed to Batum, who hit a fadeaway jumper from the right corner in front of Cleveland's bench. With time only for a tip-in attempt, the Cavaliers couldn't get a shot off before time expired.
Lillard led Portland with 24 points while Batum added 22. Alonzo Gee paced the Cavaliers with 22 points, but missed a free throw that would have given them a three-point lead before Batum's shot.
Anderson Varejao had 19 points and 17 rebounds.
ROCKETS 124, JAZZ 116
HOUSTON (AP) - Patrick Patterson scored 20 points, Chandler Parsons and Jeremy Lin had 19 apiece and Houston beat Utah.

Gordon Hayward had 13 of his 21 points in the second half and Al Jefferson and Randy Foye each scored 20 for Utah. The Jazz lost despite shooting 51 percent (48 of 94) overall and going 11 for 20 from 3-point range.
Omer Asik had 14 points and 12 rebounds for Houston. He briefly left the game after taking an elbow from Hayward, but returned for the final minutes.
The Rockets have won five straight home games. Utah has dropped three of its last four road games.
THUNDER 100, HORNETS 79
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Kevin Durant scored 20 points, Russell Westbrook added 18 points and 10 assists, and Oklahoma City won its fifth straight game.
The two Thunder stars did all their work in first three quarters, resting for the final period after helping their club build a 27-point lead.
Kevin Martin added 19 points and Nick Collison 12 in reserve roles for Oklahoma City, which has won nine of 10, including its last four by double digits.
Ryan Anderson had 21 points and 10 rebounds for New Orleans, but was only 3 of 11 on 3-point attempts, normally his strength. Robin Lopez added 12 points and Roger Mason Jr. 11 for the Hornets, who have lost nine of 10.
BUCKS 91, CELTICS 88
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Larry Sanders had 18 points, 16 rebounds and five blocked shots, and Milwaukee rallied for a victory after Boston scored the first 17 points of the game.
Monta Ellis had 17 points and seven assists for the Bucks, while Ersan Ilyasova added 15 points and five rebounds. Brandon Jennings had a big 3-pointer in the fourth quarter.
Paul Pierce paced the Celtics with 19 points, and Kevin Garnett added 17 points and seven rebounds.
Boston played without point guard Rajon Rondo, who served the second of his two-game suspension for his role in a scuffle during a game against the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday.
Courtney Lee, who started in Rondo's place, had 13 points, and Jason Terry finished with 15 points and 11 assists.
BULLS 93, 76ERS 88
CHICAGO (AP) - Luol Deng scored a game-high 25 points and Chicago beat Philadelphia.

Richard Hamilton added 15 points for the Bulls, who played the 76ers for the first time since last season's first-round playoff series.
Joakim Noah had 12 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists and Carlos Boozer had 12 points and 12 rebounds. Boozer has double-doubles in six of his past eight games.
Jrue Holiday led the 76ers with 23 points. Thaddeus Young added 22 points and seven rebounds.
MAVERICKS 92, PISTONS 77
DALLAS (AP) - O.J. Mayo broke out of a shooting slump with 27 points and Dallas celebrated Derek Fisher's Mavericks debut with a victory against Detroit.
Mayo was coming off consecutive games with season lows and started 0 for 4 before taking over in the third quarter. He scored 16 points in a 17-4 run that eventually stretched into a 25-6 surge as Dallas snapped a three-game losing streak.
Fisher got the start a day after the 16-year veteran's first practice with the Mavs. His presence seemed to spark Darren Collison, the struggling young point guard he was brought in to help. Collison had eight assists and no turnovers.
Brandon Knight led Detroit with 20 points, including 18 in the first half.
