    San Antonio guard Tony Parker scored a game-high 22 points as the San Antonio Spurs set a franchise record by winning their 18th consecutive game with a 103-77 defeat of the Indiana Pacers.

    Boris Diaw added 14 points for the Spurs, who extended their previous longest winning streak that was set from February 19 through March 31, 1996.

    Paul George scored 16 points for the Pacers, who have lost six of seven and their once seemingly safe three-game lead over Miami for the Eastern Conference's top seed.

    Elsewhere, LeBron James scored 32 points for Miami, and Chris Bosh added 18 as the Heat moved into the top spot in the Eastern Conference with a 93-83 victory over the Toronto Raptors.

    Charlotte's Kemba Walker and Al Jefferson each had a double-double as the Bobcats rallied from an 11-point, fourth-quarter deficit to beat Washington 100-94, preventing the Wizards from clinching their first playoff berth since 2008.

    Philadelphia lose again

    In Atlanta, Paul Millsap scored 28 points and Lou Williams added 22 off the bench, rallying the Hawks to a 103-95 victory that denied the Philadelphia 76ers their first winning streak in nearly three months.

    Zach Randolph had 20 points and 11 rebounds, and Mike Conley added 19 points as the Memphis Grizzlies kept pace in the playoff race with a 94-92 win over the Denver Nuggets.
