NBA NOTEBOOK...By "Easy" Al Monte

LOOKING BACK:

SATURDAY

Denver snapped its 14-game losing streak with a 98-92 win in Miami. The victory also ended the Nuggets` 16-game road losing streak, which dated to Jan. 3. It was the franchise`s first victory in Miami since 1994.

The Los Angeles Clippers ended an eight-game skid, their longest losing streak of the season, and gave Dennis Johnson his first victory as their head coach with a 103-97 victory over Chicago.

After a 94-80 loss to Portland, Indiana has won just one of its last 10 games and has lost eight straight on the road.

SUNDAY

New Jersey`s 102-92 victory in New Orleans snapped the Nets` four-game losing skid and the Hornets` eight-game winning streak.

San Antonio has won 11 consecutive games against Boston, including a 94-78 victory. The Spurs swept the two games between the teams for the fifth straight season.

Orlando beat Denver for the 12th consecutive time, 111-98. The Magic improved to 13-2 against the Nuggets in Orlando. The Magic have won eight of their last 10 games.

Indiana lost in Sacramento 107-88 for its ninth straight road loss. The Pacers have not won on the road since a 102-95 victory at Miami on Jan. 27. Sacramento is 14-0 against the Eastern Conference at home this season following its 107-88 win over Indiana.

After a 119-106 victory in Toronto, Memphis has won consecutive road games for the first time since Jan. 10-12, 2001.

With a 106-92 win over Philadelphia, the Los Angeles Lakers posted their ninth win in the last 10 games and 16th in their last 19. Now 35-26, they were a .500 team just more than a month ago.

MONDAY

The Los Angeles Clippers have lost nine of their last 10 games, including a 95-86 loss in Atlanta.

DID YOU KNOW?

Toronto is 0-11 in the second game of back-to-back days of NBA action.

Golden State is coming off a winless three-game road trip, matching its worst losing streak of the last four months.

Indiana ended an 0-4 trip to the West coast Sunday. That was the Pacers` second 0-4 trip in less than a month and gave them 10 losses in their last 11 games overall. The Pacers have dropped nine straight road games. Indiana is one of the NBA`s best home teams with a 25-4 record.

New Orleans, beginning a four-game road trip, has lost all three meetings with Indiana this season. The Hornets have won four straight road games.

Memphis has won back-to-back games away from home for the first time since Jan. 10-12, 2001. They can match a franchise record for consecutive road victories by beating New York on Tuesday night. New York has won four straight at home.

San Antonio has not beaten Milwaukee since the 1997-98 season. The Bucks have swept three straight season series, and the teams did not meet in the strike-shortened 1999 campaign.

Cleveland needs five more wins to avoid matching the franchise`s worst mark of 15-67, recorded in their inaugural campaign in 1970-71. Cleveland, which owns the NBA`s worst record, is still looking for its first win in March and has lost six straight and 12 of its last 13.
