PHILADELPHIA – Allen Iverson is gone. The Philadelphia 76ers’ losing streak isn’t over, though.

Jermaine O’Neal scored 34 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, and Stephen Jackson had 25 points to lead the Indiana Pacers to a 101-93 win over Philadelphia on Wednesday night, the last-place 76ers’ 12th straight loss.

O’Neal and Jackson took turns down the stretch making clutch baskets to hold off a spirited Sixers team playing their first game in more than 10 years without Iverson on the roster.

Andre Iguodala and Kyle Korver each scored 20 points for the Sixers, a night after they traded Iverson to Denver for Andre Miller, Joe Smith and two 2007 first-round picks.

Iverson will probably make his Denver debut Friday night at home against Sacramento. The Nuggets postponed their game Wednesday night against Phoenix because of a snowstorm. No Iverson, and no Chris Webber again, either. Webber missed his third straight game because of a sprained right ankle.

Bucks 121, Heat 95

MILWAUKEE – Mo Williams had his first career triple-double with 19 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists and Michael Redd added 28 points as the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Miami Heat 121-95 on Wednesday night to extend their home winning streak to five games.

Redd and Miami’s Dwyane Wade, who finished with 27 points, put on a scoring show early, but Wade became mired in foul trouble and began settling for jump shots.

Magic 86, Hornets 83

ORLANDO, Fla. – Grant Hill had 21 points and seven rebounds, Dwight Howard added 16 points and 13 boards, and the Orlando Magic held on to beat the New Orleans Hornets 86-83 Wednesday night.

Chris Paul led New Orleans with 19 points and 10 assists, while Jannero Pargo scored 16. It was the injury-plagued Hornets’ fourth straight loss, and second in a row by three points or less.

Jazz 112, Hawks 106

ATLANTA – Mehmet Okur scored 30 points and pulled down 10 rebounds to help the Utah Jazz erase a 21-point fourth-quarter deficit and beat the Atlanta Hawks 112-106 on Wednesday night.

A five-point possession with 10:23 remaining turned the momentum in favor of Utah, which outscored the Hawks 40-13 in the final period and rallied from a 21-point deficit for the second time this season.

Lakers 111, Wolves 94

MINNEAPOLIS – Vladimir Radmanovic and Maurice Evans combined for 16 points during a 25-2 run in the fourth quarter that rallied the Los Angeles Lakers to a 111-94 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night.

One night after shooting just 6-of-19 from the floor and fouling out for the first time in more than a year in a loss to Chicago, Kobe Bryant scored 24 points on 10-of-17 shooting.

Knicks 111, Bobcats 109

NEW YORK – David Lee tipped in a long inbounds pass as time expired in the second overtime, giving the exhausted New York Knicks a 111-109 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night.

Still missing three suspended players after last Saturday’s brawl with the Nuggets and playing without injured starters Steve Francis and Quentin Richardson, the Knicks were forced into overtime for the second time in three nights. They played only eight players, just as they did Monday when they came from 16 points down to beat Utah 97-96 in overtime.

Nets 113, Cavaliers 111

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Vince Carter broke a scoring drought with 38 points to help the New Jersey Nets hold off the Cleveland Cavaliers 113-111 Wednesday night.

LeBron James led Cleveland with 37 points, but fell just short of bringing the Cavaliers back from a 16-point, fourth-quarter deficit.

Spurs 105, Grizzlies 98

SAN ANTONIO – Tim Duncan scored 21 points and Michael Finley added a season-high 20 to lead the San Antonio Spurs to a 105-98 victory Wednesday night over the Memphis Grizzlies.

Duncan was perfect from the field, going 8-of-8.

, while Tony Parker had 18 points and 10 assists for the Spurs.
