Pacers keep Wizards winless

WASHINGTON – There were boos early and at the end for the winless Washington Wizards, who dropped to a franchise-worst 0-9 with a 96-89 loss to the Indiana Pacers on Monday night.

Indiana’s David West scored 13 of his season-best 30 points in the fourth quarter, and Roy Hibbert broke out of a slump with 20 points and 12 rebounds.

Still without point guard John Wall, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 NBA draft, and starting center Nene – and no one seems to be sure when either injured player will make his season debut – the Wizards are the only team in the NBA without a victory. They started 0-8 a year ago, the club’s previous worst opening to a season.

Bobcats 102, Bucks 98: At Charlotte, N.C., Ramon Sessions scored nine of his 23 points in the fourth quarter, including two free throws with 4.2 seconds left to seal Charlotte’s win over Milwaukee.

Hawks 81, Magic 72: At Atlanta, Al Horford scored 15 points and Lou Williams added 14 to lead Atlanta to a win over struggling Orlando.

Nuggets 97, Grizzlies 92: At Memphis, Tenn., Danilo Gallinari scored 26 points, including a 3-pointer with 13 seconds left, and Denver ended Memphis’ winning streak at eight games

Jazz 102, Rockets 91: At Salt Lake City, Al Jefferson had 14 points and 16 rebounds and Utah beat road-weary Houston.

Clippers 92, Spurs 87: At San Antonio, Chris Paul had 19 points and eight assists and Los Angeles claimed its second win against San Antonio this season.

Warriors 105, Mavericks, 101 (OT): At Dallas, Stephen Curry scored 20 of his 31 points in the fourth quarter and overtime and David Lee’s layup with 32.8 seconds left helped Golden State beat Dallas.
