Rockets 104, Spurs 98

The Houston Rockets used a late rally to overcome a fourth-quarter deficit for a win over the San Antonio Spurs that clinched a season series sweep.

The Rockets (54-27) secured home-court advantage for their Western Conference quarter-final series against the Portland Trail Blazers by completing their first season sweep against the Spurs (62-19) since the 1988-89 season.

Dwight Howard finished with 20 points and 17 rebounds as Houston used a 10-2 run in the fourth to surge past the Spurs, who have already clinched the No. 1 seed in the West.

Bulls 108, Magic 95

Mike Dunleavy scored 22 points, leading the Chicago Bulls to a victory over the Orlando Magic as they fight for playoff positioning.

The Bulls played their final regular-season home game, but their playoff future remains unsettled. Chicago and Toronto Raptors remain tied for third place in the Eastern Conference, both with 48-33 records.

The Bulls need to win their season finale on Wednesday and have Toronto lose theirs in order to get the No. 3 seed.

Mike Scott tallied 20 points for Atlanta (37-44), locked into the East's eighth spot.
