HEAT 107, PELICANS 88
MIAMI • LeBron James scored 32 points and Dwyane Wade had 22 to power Miami to the win.
It was the 10th 30-point game of the season for James. The Heat are 9-1 when he scores that many.
Chris Andersen was 7 for 7 from the field and scored 15 points, and Chris Bosh added 12 points and nine rebounds for the Heat (27-8), who trailed by 11 points early in the third quarter.
Miami then outscored New Orleans 59-26 over the next 20 minutes, the run ending when James, Wade and Bosh departed for the night with about 3 minutes left.
Anthony Davis led the Pelicans with 22 points and 12 rebounds, most of his numbers coming in the first half. Eric Gordon scored 15 and Tyreke Evans added 13 for New Orleans (15-18).
PACERS 86, RAPTORS 79
INDIANAPOLIS • Roy Hibbert scored 22 points and Danny Granger matched his season high with 13, helping Indiana to its third consecutive win.
The NBA-leading Pacers (28-6) held the Raptors to a season low in points.
Toronto (16-17) has lost two straight on the road — at Miami and Indiana — after winning four straight. The Raptors were led by DeMar DeRozan with 28 points and Patrick Patterson with 20 against a Pacers team that looked more like itself after losing north of the border last week.
Indiana had a 40-26 scoring advantage in the paint and limited the Raptors to 37 percent shooting from the field. And instead of struggling in the second half, the Pacers pulled away.
They closed the first half on an 8-3 spurt to take a 44-36 lead they extended to 17 in the third.
