Heat win without LeBron

With LeBron James watching from the bench in a suit and tie, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade powered the Miami Heat to a 93-79 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Sunday.

James was a late scratch after he broke his nose in Thursday's win at Oklahoma City, and his teammates picked up the slack, with reserves Chris Andersen, Michael Beasley, and Ray Allen helping the Heat pull away in the second half.

Bosh tied a career high with four three-pointers and had 28 points and 10 rebounds. Wade added 23 points, 10 rebounds, and 7 assists, while Mario Chalmers contributed 12 points and nine assists.

Clippers 125, Thunder 117 - Jamal Crawford scored 36 points to help visiting Los Angeles beat Oklahoma City.

Matt Barnes scored 24 points; Chris Paul had 18 points, 12 assists, and 8 rebounds; Blake Griffin scored 20 points; and DeAndre Jordan added 18 points and 12 rebounds for the Clippers, who snapped a two-game skid.

Raptors 105, Magic 90 - Kyle Lowry scored 28 points, DeMar DeRozan had 24, and host Toronto beat Orlando, handing the Magic their 15th straight road loss.

Terrence Ross scored 16, and Amir Johnson had 12 points and eight rebounds before leaving with a sprained right ankle in the Raptors' fifth victory in six games.

Wizards 93, Cavaliers 83 - John Wall scored 21 points, Bradley Beal had 17, and visiting Washington beat Cleveland. The Wizards strengthened their hold on the fifth spot in the Eastern Conference standings. - AP
