STARS

WARRIORS ON FIRE
Stephen Jackson and Al Harrington had 20 points apiece to lead Golden State past Seattle 109-96 on Sunday in a game that was delayed in the first quarter when a small fire broke out on the large scoreboard above the court. The delay didn't cool off the Warriors, winners of six straight and nine of 10 following an 0-6 start. The SuperSonics' 41 points in the first half were the fewest allowed by Golden State this season.

MAGICAL
Orlando downed the Los Angeles Lakers 104-97 on Sunday to improve to 15-4, matching the best start in franchise history. The Magic had the same record to begin the 1994-95 season and matched that the following season. Orlando is 11 games over .500 for the first time since finishing the strike-shortened 1998-99 season 33-17, and leads the NBA with a 10-2 road mark. The victory was Orlando's first road win over the Lakers after 10 straight losses.

HILL OF A NIGHT
Grant Hill scored 28 points on 13-for-17 shooting, his highest-scoring game in nearly two years, to help Phoenix down New York 115-104. With the Suns pulling away, Hill went to the bench midway through the fourth quarter, possibly all that prevented him from his first 30-point game since he scored 34 for Orlando against Miami on Feb. 27, 2005, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

ICY HEAT
Denver downed Miami 115-89 on Sunday to drop the Heat to 4-12, their worst start since the 2003-04 season. That team also started 4-12, but finished 42-40 and reached the Eastern Conference semifinals.

CRASH THOSE BOARDS
Marcus Camby grabbed 21 rebounds in Denver's 115-89 win over Miami on Sunday. It was his fifth 20-rebound game of the season.

STRONG IN DEFEAT

The Clippers, who have shot below 50 percent in every game this season, are 2-9 since a 104-89 win at Indiana on Nov. 7 that capped their 4-0 start. ... Jason Kidd had a season-best 16 assists in New Jersey's 118-95 loss to Detroit. ...
