Wade, Miami rally to clip Detroit

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Dwyane Wade scored 24 points and Chris Bosh added 23 to help the Miami Heat rally for a 100-94 win over the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night.

LeBron James had 19 points, eight rebounds and seven assists for Miami, which has won six of seven following a five-game losing streak.

The Heat trailed by 11 late in the third quarter before Mike Miller made a 3-pointer in the final seconds. Miami then scored the first 15 points of the fourth to take an 88-81 lead.

Detroit had the ball down by four in the final minute, but Greg Monroe missed a layup, forcing the Pistons to foul.

Nuggets 115, Spurs 112

At Denver, Wilson Chandler hit a go-ahead jumper with 29.3 seconds remaining.

The Spurs were playing their first game since losing Tim Duncan indefinitely to a left ankle sprain in Monday night's night win over Golden State.

Suns 114, Raptors 106

At Phoenix, Aaron Brooks energized a tired, ailing Phoenix Suns team with 25 points.

Brooks hit the biggest shot of the game, a 3-pointer from the left corner with 54.9 seconds left to play that gave the Suns a 110-105 lead. It came after Phoenix grabbed the lead for good with 2:14 left, on a Jared Dudley's 3-pointer.

Pacers 111, Bobcats 88

At Charlotte, N.C., Danny Granger scored 33 points and the Indiana Pacers created breathing room over one of their closest competitors for the Eastern Conference's final playoff spot.

Rockets 131, Warriors 112

At Houston, Kevin Martin scored 34 points, Chuck Hayes got his first career triple-double and Houston won its fifth straight.

Hayes had 14 rebounds, 13 points and 11 assists for the Rockets, who remained two games behind Memphis for the final playoff spot in the West.

Thunder 106, Jazz 94

At Oklahoma City, Russell Westbrook scored 31 points and Kevin Durant added 29 to help Oklahoma City drop depleted Utah to .500 for the first time since Nov. 6.

The Jazz (36-36) played without starting point guard Devin Harris because of a strained right hamstring, and Andrei Kirilenko sat out the second half after bruising a nerve in his left knee. That proved to be too much to overcome.

76ers 105, Hawks 100

At Philadelphia, Lou Williams scored 17 points, Andre Iguodala and Thaddeus Young each had 16, and Philadelphia rallied with a 25-6 run to open the fourth quarter.

At Cleveland, Kris Humphries grabbed a career-high 23 rebounds and made several big plays in overtime, leading New Jersey to its fifth road win in a matchup of two bad teams winding down miserable seasons.

At Los Angeles, Blake Griffin posted his first career triple-double and Eric Gordon scored 32 points to help the Los Angeles Clippers beat the Washington Wizards in double-overtime.

Griffin finished with 33 points, 17 rebounds and 10 assists, and Randy Foye hit a clinching 3-pointer in the final minute for the Clippers.
