LeBron James scored 31 points, Dwyane Wade added 23, and the Heat used a huge third quarter to run away and eventually rout the New York Knicks, 108-82, on Thursday night in Miami.

James donned a dark mask to protect his broken nose and clearly was unencumbered, hitting 13 of 19 shots and topping 30 points for the fifth consecutive game.

Wade shot 10 for 13 from the field for Miami, which outscored New York by 23-3 over the final 7 minutes, 2 seconds of the third and won its sixth straight.

Pacers 101, Bucks 96 - Roy Hibbert had 24 points and 12 rebounds to help Indiana rally for a victory over visiting Milwaukee.

Paul George and Lance Stephenson each scored 18 points for NBA-leading Indiana.
