NBA Roundup

Associated Press
NEW ORLEANS ó Chris Paul had 16 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Hornets tied a franchise record for single-season victories with 54 in a 108-96 defeat of the Golden State Warriors on Sunday.
It was the fourth career triple double for Paul, who inspired boisterous chants of M-V-P from a sellout crowd that watched the Hornets win their 11th straight home game and fourth straight overall.
Tyson Chandler added 11 points and 12 rebounds for New Orleans, which remains atop the Western Conference with six games remaining.
Mavericks 105, Suns 98
PHOENIX ó A hobbled Dirk Nowitzki brought the offense. Jason Kidd triggered the defense.
The result was a fourth-quarter rally that may have saved the season for the Dallas Mavericks.
Nowitzki scored 32 points and the Mavericks rallied from a 13 points down early in the fourth to stun the Phoenix Suns 105-98 on Sunday. Dallas outscored Phoenix 27-9 in the fourth quarter for the kind of gutsy victory against a strong opponent the Mavericks had sought since the trade that brought Kidd from New Jersey.
Knicks 100, Magic 90
NEW YORK ó Rookie Wilson Chandler scored a season-high 23 points, Zach Randolph added 20 points and 11 rebounds, and the New York Knicks snapped a five-game losing streak with a 100-90 victory over the Orlando Magic.
Fred Jones and David Lee added 13 points apiece for the Knicks, who won for just the third time in 20 games. The other two were against Miami, making this their first win over a team other than the league-worst Heat since beating Charlotte on Feb. 27.
Spurs 72, Blazers 65
PORTLAND, Ore. ó The San Antonio Spurs are not letting up now that they’ve secured a place in the playoffs. There’s too much scrambling in the Western Conference.
Tim Duncan had 27 points and 11 rebounds and San Antonio beat Portland 72-65 on Sunday, extending the Spurs’ winning streak over the Trail Blazers to 12 straight games.
Pacers 105, Bucks 97
INDIANAPOLIS ó When the Indiana Pacers’ playoff hopes were fading and they needed a spark, they found it from an unlikely source.
Reserve point guard Travis Diener scored 15 of his 18 points in the fourth quarter, and the Pacers beat the Milwaukee Bucks 105-97.
Diener, who averages seven points per game, made five of six 3-pointers in the final period.
Lakers 114, Kings 92
SACRAMENTO, Calif. ó Kobe Bryant scored 29 points, Vladimir Radmanovic matched his season high with 21 and the Los Angeles Lakers stayed on track for the Pacific Division title.Grizzlies 113, T’wolves 101
MINNEAPOLIS ó Mike Miller scored 34 points and hit a season-high eight 3-pointers to lead the Memphis Grizzlies to a 113-101 victory over Minnesota.
Pistons 91, Heat 75
