Bucks get past Heat

MIAMI — Brandon Jennings scored 23 points, Ersan Ilyasova added 16 and the Milwaukee Bucks held Miami to 37 percent shooting in a 91-82 victory over the Heat on Sunday night.

It was the second straight road win for Milwaukee, which started the season 0-8 away from home. Andrew Bogut scored 13 points for the Bucks, and Shaun Livingston and Stephen Jackson each had 10.

LeBron James finished with 28 points and 13 rebounds for Miami, which had won three straight. Chris Bosh scored 23 points for the Heat.

Milwaukee turned 22 Miami turnovers into 22 points and the Heat tied an NBA season-low with nine assists, one shy of matching the franchise record. It was the first time Miami lost this season in seven games without Dwyane Wade, out again with a sprained right ankle.

Pacers 98, Lakers 96

At Los Angeles, Roy Hibbert scored eight of his 18 points in the fourth quarter playing with a broken nose to help Indiana beat Los Angeles.

Kobe Bryant scored 33 points for the Lakers, but missed what would have been a tying 3-pointer from 30 feet from the top of the key with 3.5 seconds to play.

The Lakers, coming off road losses to Miami and Orlando, failed to reach 100 points for the 11th straight game — their longest streak since a 12-game stretch in 2003-04.

Hibbert, the Pacers' second-leading scorer, left the court with the broken nose after fouling Bryant with 6:46 left in the first quarter. Hibbert reported back in with 5:12 left in the second quarter after a trainer stuffed cotton up his nose, but had difficulty keeping it in at times. He also had eight rebounds.

Celtics 100, Wizards 94

At Washington, Paul Pierce had season highs with 34 points and 10 assists and tied his season best with eight rebounds to lead Boston past Washington.

The Celtics won for the second time in three games despite playing most of the game without a pair of starting guards. Point guard Rajon Rondo was out for the second straight game with a sprained right wrist, and Boston lost starting guard Ray Allen as well when he jammed his left ankle in the first half.

Pierce stepped in and made up for their absence, going 10 for 15 from the floor and 12 of 15 from the line. He also had a season-high three steals.

John Wall had 27 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists for the Wizards.

Clippers 103, Raptors 91

At Los Angeles, Mo Williams scored Los Angeles' first 17 points of the fourth quarter and finished with 26 points, and the Clippers sent Toronto to its eighth straight loss.

Blake Griffin had 18 points and nine rebounds, DeAndre Jordan added 16 points and 16 rebounds, and Chauncey Billups had 14 assists for the Clippers, playing their fifth straight game without point guard Chris Paul because of a left hamstring strain.

Leandro Barbosa scored 19 points for the Raptors.

Nets 97, Bobcats 87

At Newark, N.J., Deron Williams had 19 points, nine rebounds and 10 assists to lead New Jersey past Charlotte.

MarShon Brooks added 20 points for the Nets, and Anthony Morrow had 19.

Rookie Kemba Walker led the Bobcats with 16 points, six rebounds and four assists.
