INDIANAPOLIS -- After trailing by 13 at halftime, the Pacers outscored the Raptors by 37 in the second half to defeat Toronto 108-84 Saturday night.

Indiana trailed 57-44 at the half, then scored the first seven of the third to begin a 21-7 run that produced a 65-64 lead. The Pacers finished the quarter with a 9-2 run for a 74-68 lead.

The Pacers put the game away with a 15-0 run midway through the fourth.

SONICS 84, HEAT 82: Seattle did not show fatigue despite playing its fourth road game in five nights, withstanding a second-half comeback.

BUCKS 110, 76ERS 105 (OT): Tim Thomas scored 21, including five in overtime, and Ray Allen had 20 as host Milwaukee ended Philadelphia's four-game winning streak.

Sixers guard Allen Iverson stole a pass and went the length of the court for a tying layup with 33 seconds left to force overtime.

Olajuwon's number retired

The Rockets thanked Hakeem Olajuwon by retiring his No. 34 in a halftime ceremony during their game against the Warriors.

Olajuwon, 39, played 17 seasons with Houston, leading them to NBA championships in 1994 and 1995. He was a 12-time All-Star, the MVP in 1994 and Defensive Player of the Year in 1993 and 1994.

Olajuwon finished as the NBA leader in blocks with 3,830.

GRIZZLIES: Backup point guard Brevin Knight had to be carried to the locker room after injuring his right ankle in the first against the Nuggets. X-rays were negative.

MAVERICKS: Center Raef LaFrentz was put on the injured list. Forward Popeye Jones was activated.

TIMBERWOLVES: Wally Szczerbiak sat out against the Celtics because of soreness in his left knee. He is day to day.
