Allen Iverson tore the bandage off his chipped thumb and scored 31 points, and Chris Webber added 14 -- including a ridiculous 3-pointer to start Philadelphia's fourth-quarter push -- in leading the 76ers to a 93-81 win over the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers last night. Kyle Korver added 15 points and 11 rebounds for the Sixers, who improved to 6-5 since Webber arrived in a trade. Philadelphia moved into eighth place in the Eastern Conference -- one-half game ahead of Orlando, which played later at Seattle.
With the 24-second shot clock running down, Webber picked up a loose ball in front of Cleveland's bench and flung in his 3-pointer to put Philadelphia ahead, 80-79. The shot triggered a game-closing 16-2 run for the Sixers.
LeBron James scored 16 points on just 3-of-20 shooting for the Cavs. He came in averaging 35 points and shooting 56 percent in his past three games, but never found his range.
Warriors 110, Suns 100 -- Baron Davis scored 33 points, including 5 during a decisive 12-0 run midway through the fourth quarter, sparking Golden State to an upset win at Phoenix. Davis, who has helped the Warriors to an 8-6 record since he was obtained from New Orleans last month, hit seven 3-pointers. That was more than the entire Phoenix team, which specializes in that shot.
Pacers 103, Lakers 97 -- Reggie Miller scored a season-high 39 points, his highest total in nearly 4 1/2 years, and Indiana held off a fourth-quarter rally at Indianapolis. Miller made a 3-pointer with 59 seconds left to give the Pacers a 95-90 lead, then made six straight free throws in the final 24.8 seconds to seal the victory.
Nets 94, Jazz 80 -- Vince Carter scored 10 of his 23 points in the third quarter, and Jason Kidd had 10 points, 9 assists, and 8 rebounds to lead host New Jersey. Travis Best had 14 points, Brian Scalabrine 12, Nenad Krstic 11, and Zoran Planinic 10 as the Nets won their third straight to stay in reach of a playoff spot. Andrei Kirilenko led Utah with 15 points as the Jazz dropped their eighth straight.
Pistons 103, Raptors 92 -- Chauncey Billups scored 23 points and Tayshaun Prince added 21 to lead Detroit to its 11th straight home win. Donyell Marshall had 25 points and 12 rebounds for the Raptors, who were without center Chris Bosh after he bruised his lower back during Wednesday's 110-109 loss at Boston.
Spurs 93, Bobcats 76 -- Tony Parker scored 24 points, half of them coming in the decisive third quarter, as host San Antonio beat Charlotte. After trailing, 52-42, at halftime, Charlotte got its deficit down to 60-54 midway through the third on a short jumper by Emeka Okafor. But the Bobcats went scoreless and committed six turnovers during the final 6:05 of the quarter.
Nuggets 115, Clippers 96 -- Marcus Camby had 20 points and 17 rebounds to help host Denver to its 10th win in 11 games. Camby owned the middle and even made a couple of outside jumpers to help Denver take a 2 1/2-game lead over the Lakers and Timberwolves for eighth place in the West.
Bucks 99, Wizards 90 -- Michael Redd scored 26 points and Joe Smith added a season-high 24 as Milwaukee blew a 16-point lead but still beat visiting Washington.
Hornets 94, Bulls 90 -- Jamaal Magloire scored 17 points in his second game back from a 51-game absence (fractured finger), and P.J. Brown added 14 points and 11 rebounds to lead New Orleans to a rare road victory.
SuperSonics 98, Magic 90 -- Ray Allen tied his season high with 38 points and shorthanded Seattle broke a three-game home losing streak in Chris Jent's debut as the Magic's head coach.
Knicks 106, Hawks 92 -- Stephon Marbury scored 24 points and Tim Thomas added 23 as New York kept its playoff hopes alive with a victory in Atlanta.
Grizzlies 88, Timberwolves 83 -- Jason Williams came off the bench to score 17 points, and Lorenzen Wright and Bonzi Wells added 16 each to lead host Memphis.
