NBA Roundup: Thunder stay hot with win

The Associated Press

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Russell Westbrook scored 27 points and Kevin Durant added 18 to lead Oklahoma City to a 116-100 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night.

Reserve guard Jeremy Lamb added a career-high 18 points to help the Thunder to their fourth straight win and 12th in 13 games.

TIMBERWOLVES 106, 76ERS 99: Kevin Love had 26 points, 15 rebounds and five assists as Minnesota rallied from a 19-point deficit to win at home.

Ricky Rubio had 21 points, seven assists and five rebounds, Nikola Pekovic added 20 points and 10 rebounds, and Robbie Hummel hit a couple of big shots for the Timberwolves in the fourth quarter.

SPURS 109, BUCKS 77: Tim Duncan had 21 points and 16 rebounds while playing just 24 minutes – single-handedly outscoring the Milwaukee starters – and Tony Parker added 15 points in a rout at Milwaukee.

KNICKS 83, BULLS 78: Carmelo Anthony had 30 points and 10 rebounds, and New York pulled out a win at home after blowing a 23-point lead.

Amare Stoudemire made the tiebreaking jumper with 2:35 left and finished with 14 points and nine rebounds for the Knicks, who ended a two-game losing streak but made it harder than necessary with some sloppy second-half offense.

MAGIC 92, BOBCATS 83: Jameer Nelson had 12 of his 17 points in the fourth quarter and Orlando snapped a six-game losing streak with a win at Charlotte, N.C.

PELICANS 111, PISTONS 106: Ryan Anderson shook off an unusually poor shooting night from long range, hitting two clutch 3-pointers in overtime to carry New Orleans at home.


SUNS: Broadcaster Tom Chambers apologized to the team and its fans after being arrested on suspicion of DUI.

Scottsdale police said Chambers, 54, a former Suns star, was pulled over Saturday night after an officer saw a pickup truck weaving in a bicycle lane.
