Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Spencer Hawes had one of the best performances of his career as the Philadelphia 76ers (25-40) beat the Indiana Pacers (40-26) 98-91 Saturday.

Hawes nearly became the fifth player in NBA history to register a quadruple-double, finishing with 18 points, 16 rebounds, eight assists and seven blocks. The only players in league history to reach double figures in four categories in the same game are David Robinson, Hakeem Olajuwon, Alvin Robertson and Nate Thurmond.

Hawes led a balanced Sixers attacked that featured six players in double figures in scoring. Jrue Holiday had 27 points and 12 assists, Dorell Wright and Thaddeus Young scored 13 points each, Damien Wilkins scored 12 points and Evan Turner scored 11. The Sixers shot 49 percent.

The teams played each other evenly most of the game, but Philadelphia overcame a one-point deficit heading into the fourth by out-scoring the Pacers 27-18 in the final quarter. Paul George led Indiana with 18 points, 14 rebounds and four assists. It was Indiana's second-straight loss.

Utah Jazz 94, Memphis Grizzlies 80

The Jazz (34-32) stayed within a half game of the eighth and final playoff spot in the West by handing the Grizzlies (44-21) their second-straight loss. Gordon Hayward had 17 points and eight rebounds for Utah. Jerryd Bayless had 24 points for Memphis.

Washington Wizards 127, Phoenix Suns 105

Martell Webster scored 34 points, John Wall had 17 points and 11 assists and Emeka Okafor had 17 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Wizards (23-42) to their third-straight win. Goran Dragic had 12 points and 11 assists for the Suns (22-45).

Boston Celtics 105, Charlotte Bobcats 88

Boston (36-29) atoned for two losses to the lowly Bobcats (14-52) this season, including a 26-point blow out on March 12, with the win. Jason Terry scored 15 points off the bench and Paul Pierce had 14 points and eight assists for Boston. Newly signed Jannero Pargo led the Bobcats with 18 points.

San Antonio Spurs 119, Cleveland Cavaliers 113

Tim Duncan had 30 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Spurs (51-16) past the Cavs (22-44). Kawhi Leonard had 24 points and Manu Ginobili and Nando De Colo combined for 25 points off the bench. Wayne Ellington scored 21 points and Marreese Speights scored 19 for the Cavs.

Portland Trail Blazers 112, Detroit Pistons 101

LaMarcus Aldridge led five Blazers (31-34) in double figures with 31 points and 12 rebounds to help Portland win its second straight. J.J. Hickson scored 18, Wesley Matthews and Nicolas Batum had 17 each and Damian Lillard had 14 points and seven assists. Rodney Stuckey led the Pistons (23-45) with 32 points and Will Bynum scored 23 off the bench. Detroit has lost eight-straight games.
