Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - David West scored 22 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in leading the Indiana Pacers to their first regular season win in Atlanta in over seven years, as they downed the Hawks 89-85 at Philips Arena. Paul George chipped in with 18 points and seven boards while Lance Stephenson scored 10 before leaving with an injury for the Pacers, whose last regular season win in Atlanta came Dec. 22, 2006 -- a span of 12 consecutive losses. Hawks All-Star forward Paul Millsap pulled down a game-high 12 rebounds but connected on just two of his 11 field goals attempts and finished with seven points. Atlanta got plenty of bench help with Mike Scott and Elton Brand totaling 15 and 12 points, respectively.

Final Score: Minnesota 109, LA Lakers 99

Minneapolis, MN (SportsNetwork.com) - Kevin Love scored 31 points and pulled down 17 rebounds, and the Minnesota Timberwolves ran out to a big lead before beating the injury-riddled Los Angeles Lakers, 109-99, at Target Center. Kevin Martin tied a season-high with 32 points for the Timberwolves, who snapped a two-game skid and beat the Lakers for just the third time in the last 29 matchups. The Lakers, despite getting Steve Nash and Steve Blake back from injuries, lost their seventh straight game. It's the first seven-game skid for the team since March 2-15, 2007 when they also lost seven in a row. Nash played 24 minutes and had seven points and nine assists, and Blake was held scoreless in 32 minutes of action, but had six helpers and five boards while playing through a ruptured right eardrum. Nick Young scored 24 and Manny Harris had a season-best 19 points for the Lakers, who never led.

Final Score: Chicago 101, Phoenix 92

Phoenix, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Carlos Boozer and Joakim Noah each recorded double-doubles and D.J. Augustin poured in 18 points off the bench as the Chicago Bulls cooled off the Phoenix Suns, 101-92, on Tuesday. Boozer finished with 19 points and 12 rebounds while Noah had a 14-point, 14-rebound night for the Bulls, who ended Phoenix's five-game winning streak one day after suffering a humbling 29-point loss in Sacramento. Goran Dragic scored half of his 24 points in the fourth quarter for Phoenix, which never recovered from a slow start.

Final Score: Charlotte 91, Golden State 75

Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Al Jefferson led all scorers with 30 points and grabbed 13 rebounds and the Charlotte Bobcats crushed the Golden State Warriors 91-75 on Tuesday at Oracle Arena. The Bobcats held the Warriors to a horrid .312 shooting percentage and led by as many as 22 in cruising to their 22nd victory of the season, already surpassing last year's win total. They welcomed back Kemba Walker, who missed the previous seven games with an ankle injury and chipped in with seven points, seven assists and six boards. Gerald Henderson also filled the stat sheet with 17 points, eight rebounds and six assists for Charlotte, which went 4-3 with Walker out of the lineup. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson paced the Warriors with 17 and 12 points, respectively. Curry also had 11 assists, but the club posted its lowest output since putting up a season-low 74 points in a loss to San Antonio on Nov. 8.
