Duncan leads Spurs past Cavaliers

NEW RORK (Agencies): Tim Duncan scored 19 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as San Antonio held on for a victory when Cleveland forward LeBron James turned the ball over in the final seconds. The Cavaliers were without any timeouts after guard Manu Ginobili split two free throws with 9.1 seconds left. James grabbed the rebound and sprinted up the floor but lost the ball after he went behind his back trying to get past Ginobili. The Spurs came up with the loose ball with 1.9 seconds left, and Ginobili ran out the clock. James finished with 15 points, six rebounds and nine assists. Forward Khris Middleton connected on two big jumpers in the third overtime to help Milwaukee outlast Brooklyn. Rookie forward Jabari Parker scored 23 points and guard O.J. Mayo added 21 off the bench for the Bucks, who gave Milwaukee coach Jason Kidd a win in his first game against his former team. Center Brook Lopez paced the Nets with 26 points. Guard Bojan Bogdanovic added 19 for Brooklyn, who lost their fifth consecutive game. Solomon Hill's tip-in of a Rodney Stuckey miss at the buzzer gave Indiana a victory over Charlotte. After a Hornets miss with 18 seconds to play, the Pacers called a timeout, setting up a play in which Stuckey tried to win it, but Hill's offensive rebound provided the game-winner. Eric Bledsoe made the go-ahead layup and scored a team-high 18 points as Phoenix escaped with a win over Detroit. Phoenix gave up nine unanswered points in the final two minutes to squander an eight-point lead before shooting guard Bledsoe's basket with 28.7 seconds left. Reserve forward P.J. Tucker had 16 points while guards Gerald Green and Goran Dragic added 12 apiece for the Suns.
