NBA scores: Heat burn the Hawks, 95-89

Kevin C. Cox

The Miami Heat were able to defeat the Atlanta Hawks without Dwyane Wade, winning 95-89 on Friday.

Miami 95, Atlanta 89: The Atlanta Hawks were leading the Miami Heat by four points at halftime, but couldn't seal the deal as crunch time hit. With Dwyane Wade out with a cold, LeBron James played another terrific game, falling just one assist short of a triple-double with 21 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists.

Chris Bosh led all scorers with 24 points to go with his five rebounds, three steals and two rebounds.

The Hawks were led by Jeff Teague, who scored 20 points in a losing cause. Teague was uncanny all night, shooting 7-of-8 from the field, including going 2-for-2 from beyond the arc.

Brooklyn 107, Orlando 68: The Brooklyn Nets went down to Florida and crushed the Orlando Magic.

Five players cracked double-figures for Brooklyn on its way to the lopsided victory. Brook Lopez was the main star of the evening with a double-double of 14 points and 10 rebounds.

New York 104, Dallas 94: The New York Knicks remained undefeated by beating the tough Dallas Mavericks, with much credit to Carmelo Anthony. The Olympian had 31 points and seven rebounds, showing the way for his teammates.

O.J. Mayo kept Dallas in the game before going cold, finishing with 23 points on 7-of-16 shooting.
