Wild West: Nuggets tighten race for No. 6
Mavs' spot in the standings: Dallas remains in the sixth spot, but missed an opportunity to gain a game on Memphis for the No. 5 seed. The Mavs are one-half game ahead of Denver, which knocked off Houston on Sunday and those two teams play again tonight.

Hornets 88, Grizzlies 75: New Orleans is embracing the spoiler role as Memphis missed a chance to close the gap on the Clippers for the No. 4 seed and home-court advantage.
Nuggets 101, Rockets 86: Houston lost its third straight and is now just one game ahead of ninth-place Phoenix.
