NBA ROUNDUP Monday's games

76ers 122, Bucks 106
PHILADELPHIA -- Allen Iverson had 39 points and 12 assists, and Kyle Korver scored 19 points to lead Philadelphia back into the postseason for the first time in two years. The Sixers raced to a 22-point lead and won for the seventh time in nine games and 10th in the last 15. Desmond Mason had 22 points for the Bucks and Dan Gadzuric added 21 points and 20 rebounds.
Grizzlies 94, Spurs 92
MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Mike Miller scored 28 points, including a 22-footer at the buzzer, to lift Memphis. Miller's final shot came from the right wing after the Grizzlies inbounded the ball with 1.4 seconds remaining. Officials discussed the matter at midcourt for about five minutes before referee Steve Javie came to the scorer's table and ruled the basket good. Memphis coach Mike Fratello said after the game the clock started before Jason Williams inbounded the ball, and the officials ruled Miller would have gotten the ball off on a catch-and-shoot before the horn sounded if not for the inadvertent clock start. Glenn Robinson, who signed with San Antonio earlier this month, had 23 points on 9-of-11 shooting.
Magic 92, Pacers 88
ORLANDO, Fla. -- Steve Francis scored 24 points, including a big jumper with 10 seconds to play, as Orlando snapped a seven-game losing streak. DeShawn Stevenson added 18 points and rookie Dwight Howard had 17 points and nine rebounds for the Magic. Indiana got 19 points from reserve point guard Fred Jones and 16 from Jermaine O'Neal.
Timberwolves 102, Hornets 99
NEW ORLEANS -- Wally Szczerbiak scored 11 of his 18 points in the fourth quarter to lead Minnesota. Sam Cassell scored 16 points and Kevin Garnett had 14 as Minnesota handed New Orleans its eighth straight loss. Casey Jacobsen had 15 points for the Hornets.
Rockets 115, Clippers 90
HOUSTON -- Yao Ming had 24 points and Tracy McGrady added 16 points and 10 assists to lead Houston to its sixth straight win. Elton Brand had a season-high 36 points for the Clippers, who trailed by as many as 29 points but cut the lead to 70-57 midway through the third quarter.
