Tim Duncan led the Spurs with a season-high 36 points and 17 rebounds.
Hawks 116, Jazz 111 -- Host Atlanta overcame foul trouble, Carlos Boozer and five years of losing to Utah. Boozer scored a season-high 39 points and had 12 rebounds for Utah, but Joe Johnson scored 26 points to help Atlanta end a nine-game losing streak against the Jazz.
Pacers 119, Knicks 92 -- Mike Dunleavy scored 22 of his career-high 36 points in the third quarter, and visiting Indiana beat New York. Jermaine O'Neal added 22 points, two days after suffering a mild concussion in a victory at Miami.
Mavericks 111, Magic 108 -- Dirk Nowitzki scored 11 of his 31 points in the fourth quarter and host Dallas shut down Dwight Howard for the final three quarters, giving it just enough to hold off Orlando.
Home record of the Spurs after last night's loss. The Celtics are the NBA's only team still undefeated at home, at 12-0.
