STARS

HOME SWEET HOME
The Boston Celtics overcame Ray Allen's absence to beat the Milwaukee Bucks 104-82 and match the franchise record with a 12-0 start at home. Boston also won its first 12 home games in 1984 en route to the '85 NBA finals.

KINGS OF THE ROAD
The Sacramento Kings became the final NBA team to win a road game with a 109-99 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday night. The Kings, who entered the game with nine straight road losses to open a season, matched a team record set in 1987-88 and again in 1993-94.

MAGIC MAN
Dwight Howard had 33 points and 18 rebounds and Orlando beat the undermanned Charlotte Bobcats 103-87 on Friday night to snap a three-game losing streak. Howard, who had his NBA-leading 20th double-double, would have had an even bigger night if not for 11-of-20 shooting from the free throw line.
TRIPLE-DOUBLE
Kirk Hinrich delivered the second triple-double of his career, and the Chicago Bulls hung on to beat the Knicks 101-96 on Friday, handing New York its fifth straight loss. Hinrich finished with 15 points, 14 assists and 12 rebounds. His only other triple-double was against Golden State on Feb. 28, 2004.

SNAPPED
The Golden State Warriors roared from behind in the final minutes to snap their nine-game losing streak to the Lakers with a 108-106 victory Friday night.

STREAKS
Portland won their sixth-straight game with a 99-91 victory over Utah on Friday night. The Jazz lost their sixth straight and second to the Trail Blazers in a week.

STRONG IN DEFEAT
LeBron James had 29 points and eight assists in Cleveland's 105-97 loss to New Jersey on Friday night.

MAKING MOVES
The Charlotte Bobcats acquired center Nazr Mohammed from the Detroit Pistons on Friday in exchange for center Primoz Brezec and forward Walter Herrmann. Mohammed is averaging 3.3 points and 3.5 rebounds in 21 games.

SPEAKING
``It feels great. You want to take about 40 shots. I kept yelling 'Hey, pass me the ball.' They say, 'You're standing 45 feet outside of the 3-point arc.' I'm saying 'Hey, pass me the ball, still.' It's just one of those rare times when you feel like every shot you take is a good shot.'' - Jason Kapono, who scored a career-high 29 points to lead Toronto to a 104-93 win over Indiana on Friday night. Kapono scored 25 points in the second half, including 17 in the fourth quarter.
