Manu Ginobili scored 31 points, including five 3-pointers, to help the San Antonio Spurs to their 11th straight win, a 100-93 victory over the Kings last night in Sacramento, Calif.
Ginobili scored 11 of San Antonio's first 15 points in the fourth quarter, including three 3-pointers. He finished with 16 points in the period to hold off the Kings, who led several times in the fourth but had their four-game win streak snapped.
Tony Parker scored 15 points and Tim Duncan had 16 points and 13 rebounds as the Spurs concluded a successful four-game road trip.
Parker put the Spurs ahead for good on a driving layup with 2:50 remaining, igniting a 9-0 run. On the next possession, Parker flipped in an off-balance, high-arcing shot after being fouled by Corliss Williamson, giving the Spurs an 89-86 lead.
Kevin Martin went scoreless in the game's first 17 minutes, but finished with 26 points and had a career-high 12 rebounds for Sacramento. Williamson had 21 points for the Kings, who have won eight of their last 10 at home.
Bulls 100, Magic 76 -- Ben Gordon scored 25 points and Kirk Hinrich had 17 in Chicago's victory over host Orlando.
Luol Deng added 15 points and a season-high 14 rebounds for the Bulls, who bounced back from their worst loss of the season, a 103-70 defeat at Miami a night earlier.
The Bulls used a 14-0 run in the middle of the second quarter to seize control of a game they dominated from start to finish. Tyrus Thomas started the run with a dunk, Hinrich scored 5 straight points, including a 3-pointer, and Gordon capped it with a three that put Chicago up, 44-23. Gordon and Hinrich were a combined 7 for 9 on 3-pointers.
Dwight Howard led the Magic with 17 points and 14 rebounds, but was only 5 of 14 from the free throw line. Jameer Nelson had 13 points and Trevor Ariza had 10.
Chicago blew the game open by limiting the Magic to 26 percent shooting. Orlando scored just one field goal during an eight-minute stretch when Chicago pushed its lead to as many as 23 points.
