The NBA roundup …
CHARLOTTE ó Derrick Rose and Kyle Korver scored 20 points apiece and the Chicago Bulls pulled away in the fourth quarter to beat the Charlotte Bobcats 101-84 on Wednesday night, a victory dimmed by Carlos Boozerís leg injury.
Korver had 12 points in the final period and Joakim Noah added 12 points and 13 rebounds for the Bulls, who won for the 11th time in 13 games and expanded their hold on second place in the Eastern Conference to 21/2 games over slumping Miami.
Boozer limped off late in the game after his left leg bent awkwardly on a flagrant foul by Kwame Brown.
Gerald Henderson had 20 points and eight assists for the Bobcats, who played again without Stephen Jackson and Tyrus Thomas in their sixth straight loss.
Timberwolves 101, Pacers 75
MINNEAPOLIS ó Kevin Love recorded his 52nd double-double in a row to surpass Moses Malone for the longest such streak since the ABA and NBA merged in 1976 in the Minnesota Timberwolves’ 101-75 win over the free-falling Indiana Pacerst.
Love put up 16 points and 21 rebounds in just 27 minutes.
Former UNC star Tyler Hansbrough scored 21 points for the Pacers.
Knicks 110, Grizzlies 108

Clippers 108, Celtics 103
BOSTON ó Mo Williams scored 28 points and the Los Angeles Clippers withstood a late Boston surge to beat the Celtics 108-103 for their fourth straight win despite a mediocre performance by Blake Griffin.
