NBA roundup: Shaq sparks Suns

Associated PressWASHINGTON ó Shaquille O’Neal had no problem with back-to-back games at the end of a road trip, scoring 29 points as Phoenix wrapped up a six-game East Coast swing with a 103-87 win over Washington.
O’Neal went 10-for-14 from the field, 9-for-10 from the line and had eight rebounds in 36 minutes.
Hornets 101, 76ers 86
NEW ORLEANS ó Chris Paul had 27 points, 15 assists, 10 rebounds and seven steals for his fifth triple-double of the season. Peja Stojakovic highlighted a 26-point performance with six 3-pointers.
Heat 95, Hawks 79
MIAMI ó Dwyane Wade finished with 35 points, and the Heat held the Hawks without a field goal for nearly 131/2 minutes during one first-half stretch.
Atlanta set a franchise-futility record with its 27-point first half. Still, the Hawks got within seven points early in the final quarter.
Knicks 104, Rockets 98
NEW YORK ó Wilson Chandler responded to being taken out of the starting lineup by scoring 18 points in the Knicks’ first win over Houston since 2004. His 3-pointer with more than two minutes left gave the New York the lead for good at 97-96.
The Rockets were playing without center Yao Ming (sore right knee) for the second straight game.
Timberwolves 90, Bucks 83
MILWAUKEE ó Al Jefferson had 23 points with 10 rebounds, and Ryan Gomes added 22 points.
The Timberwolves have won 10 of their last 12 games. Bucks center Andrew Bogut missed his seventh straight contest with back spasms.
Thunder 94, Nets 85
OKLAHOMA CITY ó Kevin Durant scored nine of his 18 points in the third quarter, when Oklahoma City outscored New Jersey 31-14.
The crowd was estimated at 5,000. Icy weather held the Ford Center attendance well below the 18,000-plus who had attended the first 23 home games.
