Hornacek Ties Mark, Jazz Win

SALT LAKE CITY -- Jeff Hornacek tied an NBA record for consecutive 3-pointers, with 11 in his past six games, as the Utah Jazz beat the Denver Nuggets, 114-88.


Hornacek, who had hit eight in a row entering the game, made his first three against the Nuggets but missed on his fourth attempt Wednesday night, which would have broken Scott Wedman's NBA record, set in 1985.


Jalen Rose and Dale Ellis each scored 15, to lead Denver, which absorbed its worst loss of the season.


Suns 118, Lakers 108. Charles Barkley scored 24 points as Phoenix blew a 20-point lead in the third quarter before rallying to beat the Los Angeles Lakers. Former Laker A.C.

Rockets 108, Heat 97. Robert Horry and Vernon Maxwell helped Houston tie an NBA record with eight first-quarter 3-pointers, and the Houston Rockets overcame Miami's fourth quarter press to win. Houston hit eight of its 12 3-point shots in the opening period.


Celtics 100, Pacers 97. Dee Brown, who had 25 points and 11 assists, made two key free throws down the stretch to help the Boston Celtics hold off the Indiana Pacers 100-97. After Reggie Miller made one of two free throws to leave the Pacers trailing 98-97 with 16 seconds left, Brown's two free throws made it 100-97, and the Pacers couldn't score as time ran out.


Bulls 115, 76ers 77. The Bulls held Philadelphia to 8 points in the third quarter as Chicago defeated the 76ers, their sixth straight loss. Scottie Pippen led the Bulls with 21 points, and all 12 players on Chicago's roster scored.

Minnesota was held under 100 points for the 16th consecutive game, the second-longest streak since the inception of the 24-second clock in 1954.


Bucks 97, Kings 88. Vin Baker tied a season high with 26 points and Todd Day added 20 as the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Sacramento Kings to snap a three-game losing streak.
