Monday's HIGHLIGHTS

Spurs 101, Pelicans 95: Tony Parker capped a 27-point outing with several clutch layups in the final minutes, and San Antonio won its fifth straight. New Orleans saw its losing streak reach six games since leading scorer Ryan Anderson was sidelined.

  • Anderson said doctors want him to rest for about two months before they determine whether he needs neck surgery to repair a herniated disk. Anderson said he is nearly pain-free with the help of medication and is optimistic about his long-term future in the NBA. However, he is unsure whether he will be able to play again this season.

    Knicks 98, Suns 96: Carmelo Anthony had 29 points and 16 rebounds, and New York held Phoenix without a field goal in overtime to win its fifth straight. Anthony scored four of the Knicks' six points in the extra session, and New York allowed only four free throws by the Suns, who missed seven shots from the field in overtime.

    Rockets 104, Celtics 92: Dwight Howard scored 32 points and Jeremy Lin had 16 points and nine assists to lead Houston. Boston lost its ninth straight, extending its longest losing streak since dropping a franchise-record 18 in a row in 2007.

    Jazz 118, Nuggets 103: Alec Burks scored a career-high 34 points to spark Utah past Denver. Derrick Favors added 19 points and 15 rebounds for the Jazz, which was missing Gordon Hayward (hip) for a second straight game.

    Mavericks 107, Magic 88: Monta Ellis scored 21 points and Vince Carter had 17 as Dallas extended Orlando's losing streak to eight games.

    Raptors 116, Bucks 94: Kyle Lowry scored 23 points, Jonas Valanciunas had 17 points and 10 rebounds, and Toronto sent Milwaukee to its sixth straight loss.

    Wizards 102, Bulls 88: John Wall and Nene each scored 19 points as Washington beat Chicago.
