NBA ROUNDUP | Tuesday's other games



Warriors 97, Hornets 89
OKLAHOMA CITY -- Baron Davis and Matt Barnes scored 29 points apiece, leading the Warriors. Davis and Barnes each had big shots down the stretch for the Warriors, who won despite shooting just 39.5 percent from the field. A jumper by Davis from the left side made the lead 91-85 with 1:23 remaining, and after a Hornets miss, Barnes took a pass from Davis in the right corner and sank a 3-pointer for a 94-85 lead. Barnes added 11 rebounds and five steals. Rasual Butler scored 30 points for the Hornets.
Magic 91, Clippers 86
ORLANDO, Fla. -- Jameer Nelson made four free throws in the final 28 seconds and scored a season-high 29 points for Orlando. Dwight Howard had 14 points and 14 rebounds for the Magic, who gave up only two field goals to the Clippers in the last 5 minutes. Hedo Turkoglu and Trevor Ariza had 14 points apiece for Orlando. Corey Maggette led Los Angeles with 20 points.
Suns 97, Bulls 96
CHICAGO -- Leandro Barbosa hit a 3-pointer with 1.5 seconds remaining and the Phoenix Suns rallied. Ben Gordon gave the Bulls a 96-94 lead when he hit two free throws with 5.2 seconds left, but Phoenix wasn't finished. After a timeout, the Suns' Boris Diaw caught the inbound near the right block and passed to Barbosa at the top of the key for the winning shot. It was a bitter ending for the Bulls, who got a career-high 41 points from Gordon and led by as many as 16 in the first half. Chicago, which had won 16 of 19 and had a chance to move into the Eastern Conference lead, took a 10-point lead into the fourth quarter.
Mavericks 112, SuperSonics 88
DALLAS -- Dirk Nowitzki had 31 points and a season-high 15 rebounds, Josh Howard added 21 points and nine rebounds, and the Mavericks extended their winning streak to 11 games. Nowitzki, back in the lineup after sitting out the previous game due to a sinus infection, had his first 30-point game since scoring 31 in a win over San Antonio on Nov. 24.
