Webster fires streaking Blazers to win over Nuggest

Martell Webster scored 19 points to help Portland extend its winning streak to 10 games with a 99-96 victory over Denver on Friday.
The TrailBlazers have the longest current winning streak in the NBA. Portland has not won as many consecutive games since the 2001-02 season.
The Blazers were leading 97-94 when Allen Iverson's driving layup with 6.9 seconds left narrowed the deficit to one.
Jarrett Jack made a pair of free throws to extend the lead back to three before Linas Kleiza's 3-point attempt was blocked.
Lakers 106, 76ers 101
In Philadelphia, on a night Julius Erving and Philadelphia's 1983 championship team was honored, Andrew Bynum and the Los Angeles Lakers spoiled the celebration.
Bynum scored a career-high 24 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to lead Los Angeles.
Kobe Bryant took 10 of his 20 shots in the first quarter and finished with 19 points. He left his hometown with the Lakers' first regular season win in Philadelphia since 2000.
SuperSonics 123, Raptors 115
In Seattle, Kevin Durant scored 27 points and Seattle held off Toronto's late rally.
Durant scored 14 in the third quarter alone, keeping Seattle close long enough for his teammates to make a spirited run to pass and pull away from Toronto over the final 16 minutes.
Wally Szczerbiak came off the bench to score 23 points, making four 3-pointers.
The Raptors dropped their second straight game on a seven-game Western Conference swing.
Celtics 107, Bulls 82
In Boston, Paul Pierce scored 15 of his 22 points in the third quarter and Boston won easily over Chicago.
Pierce went 4-for-4 from 3-point range in the third before sitting out the fourth.
Recovering quickly from their only home loss of the season, Boston never trailed in the game and never gave up its double-digit lead after 10 consecutive points made it 40-22 with 7:50 left in the first half.
Mavericks 102, Clippers 89
In Dallas, Dirk Nowitzki scored 30 points to help Dallas win its fifth straight. Nowitzki has scored at least 30 in his past three games.
The Clippers have lost 12 of 15 games.
Dallas led by 12 at the half, but Los Angeles opened the third on a 15-6 run to briefly threaten.
Pistons 92, Grizzlies 67
In Auburn Hills, Michigan, Tayshaun Prince scored 16 points to lead Detroit over Memphis and record a fourth straight victory.
Jazz 113, Magic 94
In Orlando, Florida, Paul Millsap scored a career-high 28 points to help Utah end a seven-game road losing streak by downing Orlando.
The Magic have now lost six of eight. They haven't won a home game for a month.
Hawks 97, Wizards 92
In Washington, Joe Johnson scored half his 32 points in the final quarter and Atlanta moved past Washington and into second place in the Southeast Division.
The Hawks hadn't won at Washington since December 2003.
Johnson scored 10 straight Hawks points in the fourth quarter. Then, with the game tied at 86 and a little more than a minute to go, he set up Josh Smith's 3-pointer to give Atlanta the lead for good.
Bobcats 105, Knicks 95
In Charlotte, North Carolina, Gerald Wallace scored 27 points and Charlotte dominated New York.
The Bobcats led by 24 points during the second quarter.
While the Knicks made it respectable late, the game was never in doubt as Charlotte won successive games since part-owner Michael Jordan practiced with the team.
The Knicks dropped to 1-10 on the road.
Timberwolves 131, Pacers 118
In Minneapolis, playing on an injured ankle, Antoine Walker made six 3-pointers and scored 23 points to help Minnesota beat Indiana.
The Timberwolves snapped a six-game losing streak and won just their fourth game of the season.
The Pacers led by 21 points in the first half before Walker ignited the Wolves.
