NBA scores: Heat drop depleted Spurs

Mike Ehrmann

Miami won on Thursday in a very strange and controversial game.

The Miami Heat won on Thursday night, beating the San Antonio Spurs 105-100 in one of the oddest games of the year.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich decided to send home Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Danny Green and Tony Parker before the Heat game, which was the final contest of San Antonio's six-game road swing.

Despite all of that, Miami still trailed in the final minute before pulling out a victory. LeBron James led the way with 23 points and seven assists, while Chris Bosh recorded a double-double with 18 points and 12 rebounds.

Nets 98, Magic 86: Orlando fell to 5-10 on the year with a loss to the Nets on Friday. Orlando only trailed by two points at halftime, but was outscored by 10 in the third quarter and never got all that close in the fourth. Every Brooklyn starter scored in double-digits while the Magic's starting five scored just 54 points combined.

Lakers 122, Nuggets 103: Los Angeles hit 17 shots from beyond the arc, outgunning Denver in the Staples Center on Friday. The Lakers had 71 points in the first half, paced by center Dwight Howard who had 28 points and 20 rebounds on the evening.
