The Celtics were missing one of their star guards when their game against the Wizards started, and then lost another in the second quarter. The way Paul Pierce was playing, it didn't matter. Pierce had 34 points and 10 assists to lead Boston to a 100-94 win over host Washington on Sunday. "Paul carried us," said guard Ray Allen, who left after jamming his left ankle in the first half. "The team, everybody rallied behind him. " Boston started without point guard Rajon Rondo, out with a sprained right wrist.

George made four three-pointers to get the best of his matchup with LeBron James, David West added 14 points and 11 rebounds, and Lance Stephenson chipped in with 13 points for the Pacers (21-14), who have won 11 of their last 13 games. It was the first time the teams had met since Miami beat the Pacers in six games in the conference semifinals last year.

THE DAGGERS came 3 minutes into the third quarter. They were more like electrodes, really, a couple of Brandon Jennings three-pointers that seemed to jolt the Detroit Pistons into the team whose size seemed destined to give the Sixers problems. For the first two quarters of play, Michael Carter-Williams and Evan Turner took turns penetrating from the perimeter for the Sixers and finishing at the rim. Throughout the last two, they were largely unable to navigate the thicket of arms and bodies that awaited their shots.

Brandon Jennings scored 31 points, including three three-pointers in a critical stretch of the fourth quarter, and Milwaukee beat visiting Miami, 105-97, Wednesday night for the Bucks' second win over the Heat this season. Jennings also had eight assists while Drew Gooden added 17 points and nine rebounds for the Bucks, who have won three straight. LeBron James scored a season-high 40 points, including a highlight-reel windmill dunk at the end of his huge first quarter. James had 24 points in the first quarter, the most points any player has scored in a quarter this season, according to Stats LLC. Dwyane Wade added 23 points for the Heat, but it wasn't enough to beat a Bucks team that also recently knocked off the Los Angeles Lakers.

Brook Lopez scored a season-high 35 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, and the Brooklyn Nets improved to 2-0 under interim coach P.J. Carlesimo by beating the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers, 103-100, on Saturday night. Lopez followed his 26-point, 11-rebound performance in a victory Friday over Charlotte by shooting 13 of 20 from the field, making a number of timely baskets in the fourth quarter that the Nets ultimately needed to hold on. Deron Williams and Joe Johnson each scored 15 points for the Nets, who fired coach Avery Johnson on Thursday.

A person with knowledge of the situation said Tuesday that the Cleveland Cavaliers were exploring the possibility of signing 7-foot center Greg Oden, the former No. 1 overall pick who has undergone three major knee surgeries. He hasn't played since 2009. While attending Ohio State's game against Wisconsin on Tuesday night, Oden said he hopes to play next season. Meanwhile, the Cavaliers lost at home to Golden State, 108-95, as Klay Thompson scored a career-high 32 points for the Warriors, who were missing three starters - guard Stephen Curry (ankle)

The Charlotte Bobcats are threating to steal the designation of "worst ever" held for nearly 40 years by the 76ers of 1972-73. John Wall had 16 points and 14 assists, Nene scored 18 points and Jan Vesely had 16 points on 8-for-8 shooting and the host Washington Wizards handed the Bobcats their 21st straight loss, 101-73 on Monday night. If Charlotte (7-57) loses its final two games, the Bobcats will finish with the worst winning percentage in NBA history at .106. The 76ers were 9-73 in 1973, or .109.

WHEN MICHAEL Carter-Williams controls a game like he did last night, it comes in the form of fewer shots, fewer hapless forays to the basket and a more controlled setting. Against Detroit, it meant he almost collected a triple-double (14 points, 10 assists, nine rebounds), was the best player on the floor and led the 76ers to a convincing, 89-69 win over a struggling Pistons team that has now lost four in a row. The Sixers jumped out in this one early, taking a 28-8 lead by making 11 of their first 15 shots while limiting the Pistons to just two makes in their first 19 attempts.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - The 76ers were feeling good about themselves after dismantling the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday night. That feeling was promptly erased against the Detroit Pistons. The Pistons jumped out to an early double-digit lead and cruised to a 107-89 victory Saturday night at the Palace of Auburn Hills. So much for producing solid performances on back-to-back nights. The Sixers (8-32) looked nothing like the team that routed the Pelicans 24 hours earlier.

Let's get this out in the open: The 76ers beat an undermanned Minnesota Timberwolves team on Wednesday and outlasted the poor-shooting and woefully constructed Detroit Pistons three days later. On the surface, that's not something to get hyped up about. But we are talking about the same Sixers team that only a couple of weeks ago had some people thinking it could lose to the University of Kentucky. It's the same team that has seven undrafted free agents, the lowest payroll in the NBA, and is the youngest team in league history.

Among the standout songs on Wig Out at Jagbags , the new album by Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks, is "Chartjunk," a swaggering, horn-happy 1970s-style rocker. It's an excellent example of the penchant that the former leader of '90s indie-rock avatars Pavement has for playfully indirect rhyme schemes in nonlinear songs with unconventional subject matter. He delights in the dictum that source material for compelling pop songs is anywhere you find it. In the case of "Chartjunk," the inspiration is the NBA. More specifically, it's about former Milwaukee Bucks coach Scott Skiles and point guard Brandon Jennings and the relationship between a seen-it-all, would-be mentor and a talented novice tuning out the older man's advice.

RAY ALLEN is on a plateau by himself, as has the Miami Heat one step closer to the second round of the playoffs. Allen scored 23 points and broke the NBA career playoff record for three-pointers, and the visiting Heat downed the Milwaukee Bucks, 104-91, last night for a 3-0 lead in their first-round Eastern Conference series. The Heat can complete the sweep in Game 4 on Sunday at the Bradley Center. No team has ever overcome a 3-0 deficit to win a series in the NBA playoffs. Allen's five three-pointers against the Bucks gave him 322 for his career, two more than Reggie Miller.

LEBRON JAMES has never taken fewer shots in a playoff game than he did on Sunday night, which at first glance might seem like a good thing for the Milwaukee Bucks. It was not. James scored 27 points on 9 for 11 shooting - finishing two assists shy of a triple-double - while Ray Allen scored 20 off the bench and the defending champion Heat picked up where they left off in the NBA playoffs a year ago, never trailing on the way to beating the Bucks, 110-87, in Game 1 of an East first-round series.

As unlikely as the prospects are for the 76ers to play in the postseason, the team embarks on a four-game road trip with a focus on playing the consistent style of basketball it has shown over the last two weeks.   The Sixers (30-43) have won two of their last three road games after dropping 15 straight away from the Wells Fargo Center.   With seven of their last nine games on the road, the Sixers trail the eighth-place Milwaukee Bucks by six games with nine to play.

AMARE STOUDEMIRE said Thursday his recovery from right knee surgery is going "a little bit ahead of schedule," though he isn't sure if he can return to the New York Knicks for the first round of the playoffs. Stoudemire had surgery to clean up and remove tissue from the knee about 2 1/2 weeks ago and the Knicks said his expected recovery time would be about 6 weeks. The playoffs open the weekend of April 20. "It's going well. Actually going a little bit ahead of schedule right now, so I want to keep that progress going," Stoudemire said in a phone interview.
