James scored six points in the extra period, including two driving layups to lift the Heat to their second win in two nights. Chris Bosh added 25 points and seven rebounds for Miami.

Al Jefferson had 22 points to lead the Bobcats, who were playing their fourth game in five nights. Charlotte lost point guard Kemba Walker in the third quarter with an ankle injury.

The crowd of 19,631 was the largest ever to see a Bobcats game at Time Warner Cable Arena on a night in which the team began selling its Hornets gear for the first time. The Bobcats will become the Hornets after this season.

PACERS 106, CLIPPERS 92

INDIANAPOLIS • Paul George scored 36 points and Lance Stephenson added 22 points and 12 rebounds to lead Indiana to its fourth straight win, all by double digits.

The Pacers, though, missed a chance to win four in a row by 20 or more points for the first time in franchise history. Indiana retained the league’s top record and improved to 21-1 at home before heading West for a five-game road trip.

Jamal Crawford scored 22 points for the Clippers, who had their five-game winning streak snapped. Blake Griffin had 19 points and DeAndre Jordan added 12 points and 17rebounds.

NEW ORLEANS • Stephen Curry scored 28 points, David Lee added 22 and Golden State sent New Orleans to its eighth straight loss.

Anthony Davis had 31 points and 17 rebounds in his seventh straight game with more than 20 points, but that was only enough to keep the Pelicans competitive into the final minutes.

Andrew Bogut had 10 points and 15 rebounds for Golden State, which rebounded from a loss a night earlier in Oklahoma City and snapped a two-game skid. Jordan Crawford added 10 points.

Tyreke Evans scored 14 points in his return to the Pelicans after missing three games with a left ankle sprain. Al-Farouq Aminu added 12 points, but the Pelicans were doomed by 13-of-39 shooting in the second half, during which they scored only 33 points.

ROCKETS 114, BUCKS 104

HOUSTON • Terrence Jones had a career-high 36 points and 11 rebounds, and Houston led from the start.

Jones had 25 points by halftime, matching his previous career-best set on Wednesday, and James Harden added 22 points.

Houston led by 17 points before the Bucks got within six points in the third quarter. The Rockets responded with a big run to extend the lead and hold on for the victory.
