Michael Redd scored 57 points to break Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's franchise record, but Matt Harpring made a layup with 1.8 seconds left to give the Utah Jazz a 113-111 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday.

Carlos Boozer scored 32 points and Deron Williams had 27 to help the Jazz move to 6-1 for just the fifth time in franchise history. The Bucks dropped their fourth straight to fall to 2-5, their worst start since 2000-2001.

Redd scored 39 points in the second half and broke the franchise scoring record of 55 set by Abdul-Jabbar, the NBA's career scoring leader, against the Boston Celtics on Dec. 10, 1971.

Redd made 18 of 32 field goals, going 6-of-12 from 3-point range and 15-of-17 on free throws.

Cavaliers 94, Celtics 93

At Cleveland, LeBron James scored 38 points -- 25 in the second half -- and led Cleveland back from a 19-point deficit in the fourth quarter.

The Cavaliers, who trailed 11-0 to open the game and 25-6 in the first, were down by 25 points in the third period and still trailed 82-63 with 10:16 remaining before storming back.

SuperSonics 113, Hawks 112

At Atlanta, Ray Allen made a layup over the outstretched arms of Josh Smith with 1.2 seconds left in overtime as Seattle snapped Atlanta's four-game winning streak.

Allen finished with a season-high 33 points, 14 coming in the fourth quarter and overtime.

Magic 109, Timberwolves 98

At Minneapolis, Dwight Howard went toe-to-toe with his idol Kevin Garnett, scoring 21 points and grabbing 22 rebounds to lead Orlando over slumping Minnesota.

Jameer Nelson added 23 points and Darko Milicic had a season-high 15 points and five rebounds for Orlando, which led by as many as 20 points and cruised after a strong first quarter.

Spurs 100, Knicks 92

At San Antonio, Tony Parker scored a season-high 33 points to lead San Antonio to its second victory over New York this week.

Parker was 12-of-17 from the field in nearly 36 minutes. Tim Duncan had 24 points and 16 rebounds, but was just 4-of-12 at the free throw line. The Spurs shot 50 percent from the field and were barely better at the line, going 21-of-38 (55 percent).

Bulls 89, Pacers 80

At Chicago, Kirk Hinrich scored 23 points and Luol Deng added 21 as Chicago beat Indiana.

Ben Wallace had eight points and 18 rebounds for Chicago, which bounced back from a lopsided defeat at Cleveland on Thursday.

Suns 96, Grizzlies 87

At Phoenix, Amare Stoudemire had 25 points and 14 rebounds for his first double-double since Game 5 of the 2005 Western Conference finals, and Phoenix snapped a four-game losing streak.

It was the first time in six games this season the Suns held an opponent under 100 points.

The Suns had been giving up 111 points per game. Phoenix also had been outrebounded by 62 this season but beat the Grizzlies 52-42 on Saturday.

Warriors 111, Pistons 79

At Oakland, California, Baron Davis had 20 points, nine assists and five steals, and Golden State beat worn-down Detroit for the first time in three years.

Jason Richardson added 16 points, nine rebounds and four assists playing on a tender knee for the Warriors, who ended a five-game losing streak to the Pistons with their first win in the series since an overtime victory on Nov. 12, 2003, in Oakland.
