Magic puts up a fight but Bulls prevail in overtime

ORLANDO - Kirk Hinrich had 26 points and 10 assists and Andres Nocioni scored 24 to help the Chicago Bulls beat the Magic 116-112 in overtime Monday night.
Chicago has won five straight and with a little bit of help can move up to the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference. The Bulls (40-41) are tied for sixth with Indiana and Milwaukee, a half-game behind Washington. Chicago hosts Toronto on Wednesday in its regular-season finale.
Hedo Turkoglu had 32 points, including a 3-pointer with 3.2 seconds left in overtime, and nine rebounds, while Dwight Howard added 22 points and 14 rebounds for Orlando, which saw its eight-game winning streak end.
SPURS 115, JAZZ 82: Manu Ginobili scored 18 and Tim Duncan added 16 to help host San Antonio clinch the Southwest Division title and the best record in the Western Conference. The Spurs earned the No. 1 seed and homecourt advantage throughout the West playoffs.
CAVS 93, CELTICS 88: Larry Hughes had 21 points, six assists and five steals to help visiting Cleveland overcome the absence of LeBron James and sweep Boston for the first time in franchise history. James was a late scratch with a sprained left ankle, and Boston was without star forward Paul Pierce, who has a sore elbow.
BUCKS 113, PISTONS 93: Michael Redd and Bobby Simmons each scored 19 and host Milwaukee temporarily vaulted into the No. 6 playoff seed in the East with a shot at the fifth seed in its regular-season finale at Washington tonight. Detroit rested two of its top scorers, Rasheed Wallace and Richard Hamilton.
ROCKETS 86, NUGGETS 83: Juwan Howard scored a season-high 31 and visiting Houston handed playoff-bound Denver its third straight loss by scoring the final 11 points.
PACERS 120, RAPTORS 95: Peja Stojakovic scored 27 and Indiana ended a nine-game road losing streak with a rout.
BOBCATS 98, KNICKS 91: Raymond Felton had 16 points and a season-high 14 assists to lead visiting Charlotte. New York tied a franchise record with its 59th loss. Knicks coach Larry Brown missed his third straight game with a stomach ailment.
SUNS 115, HORNETS 79: Leandro Barbosa scored 21 and playoff-bound Phoenix set a season high with 20 3-pointers in 34 attempts in completing their regular season home schedule.
BLAZERS: Zach Randolph was suspended for Monday night's game and fined by the team for leaving the arena during Saturday's game against Golden State.
SONICS: Seattle bosses have determined that missing the playoffs for the third time in four seasons wasn't Bob Hill's fault. They exercised Hill's contract option for the 2006-07 season Monday, 31/2 months after they promoted him to replace the fired Bob Weiss.
TIMBERWOLVES: The fear of playing with a surgically repaired heart wouldn't let Fred Hoiberg return to the NBA. His doctors weren't preventing him from playing, but the risk - no matter how small - and the gnawing doubt was enough for the 33-year-old guard to retire Monday.
"I wanted to show that I could be the first guy to play with a pacemaker, because I felt that I could," said Hoiberg, who had the operation last June.
He played four years each with the Indiana Pacers and Chicago Bulls before joining Minnesota for the last two. He now will join the front office in a yet-to-be-determined capacity.
