Bucks' rally downs 76ers

Andrew Bogut's go-ahead putback with 10.7 seconds left capped a frantic fourth-quarter rally and led the Milwaukee Bucks over the 76ers, 88-85, last night in Philadelphia.

Michael Redd scored 24 points, and Maurice Williams sank two clutch free throws in the final minute and scored 16 for the Bucks, who blew an 18-point first-half lead before completing their comeback.

After Samuel Dalembert missed two free throws with 19 seconds left, T.J. Ford went the length of the court and missed his layup, but Bogut was there for the follow and an 86-85 lead, helping the Bucks to their third win of the season over the Sixers.

Clippers 84, Knicks 79 -- Elton Brand had 24 points and 11 rebounds and Cuttino Mobley scored 8 of his 24 points in the final 2 minutes for host Los Angeles.

Eddy Curry had 24 points and 11 rebounds for the Knicks, who led 50-39 at halftime. Sam Cassell scored 16 points for Los Angeles, but Corey Maggette, the Clippers' second-leading scorer, was sidelined by a sprained left foot.

Bulls 102, Magic 93 -- Jannero Pargo scored a season-high 23 points and Luol Deng had 22 to power visiting Chicago defeating Orlando, which has lost five straight.

Filling in for injured teammate Kirk Hinrich, who sustained a concussion when he took an elbow to the face from Dallas's Dirk Nowitzki Monday night, Pargo was 9 of 13, including 5 of 8 on 3-point attempts.

Spurs 98, Heat 84 -- Tim Duncan scored 28 points and Manu Ginobili added 27, and host San Antonio outscored Miami in the paint, 54-22.

Dwyane Wade scored 31 points but got little help from the rest of the Heat, who shot 36 percent from the field and had no answer for Duncan. Shaquille O'Neal (ankle) remains on the team's inactive list.

Suns 118, Warriors 110 -- Steve Nash had 28 points and 14 assists, and Shawn Marion added 27 points and 14 rebounds as visiting Phoenix won its eighth straight.

Raja Bell scored 19 points for the Suns, who snapped Golden State's five-game streak.

Timberwolves 84, Trail Blazers 74 -- Kevin Garnett had 16 points and 14 rebounds as visiting Minnesota erased a 14-point second-half deficit for its fourth straight victory.

Nets 97, Bobcats 84 -- Vince Carter overcame a sore ankle and knee to score 23 points and lead visiting New Jersey over Charlotte for the franchise's 1,000th victory.

Jazz 95, Hawks 83 -- Andrei Kirilenko scored 14 points and matched his career high with 10 assists, and host Utah ended a four-game home losing streak.

Lakers 102, Raptors 91 -- Lamar Odom scored 19 points, and visiting Los Angeles beat Toronto despite Kobe Bryant's lowest-scoring game of the season (11 points).
