WHO: Washington Wizards at Boston Celtics

WHEN: 7:30 p.m. Wednesday


A sold-out crowd of 17,732 that included entertainers Jay-Z, a part-owner, and wife Beyonce chanted "Brooklyn! Brooklyn!"


PACERS 106, KINGS 98: George Hill scored 18 points, including the first four in the second overtime, to lead Indiana past Sacramento in double overtime.

It was a remarkable defensive performance for the Pacers as Sacramento managed only three baskets in the final 10:45.


TRAIL BLAZERS 95, ROCKETS 85: Rookie Damian Lillard scored 20 points, including eight in overtime, and Portland slowed down James Harden, who had 24 points in his home debut but wasn't as dominate as he was in the first two games. He scored 37 points and then a career-high 45 points in his first two games with Houston since last week's trade from Oklahoma City.

LaMarcus Aldridge added 27 points and 11 rebounds for the Trail Blazers.


HORNETS 89, BULLS 82: Greivis Vasquez scored 18 points and New Orleans won at Chicago despite the absence of Anthony Davis, who is nursing a mild concussion.

Robin Lopez and Jason Smith scored 16 apiece. Ryan Anderson added 12 points and 13 rebounds, and the Hornets hit 20 of 23 free throws.

Luol Deng had 19 points and eight rebounds for Chicago. Nate Robinson scored 15, and Marco Belinelli added 13 against his former team, but the Bulls shot only 33 percent from the floor.
