Joakim Noah had 20 points and 12 rebounds, D.J. Augustin scored 22 and the host Chicago Bulls beat the Miami Heat, 95-88, in overtime Sunday after Jimmy Butler blocked LeBron James at the end of regulation.

Dwyane Wade scored 25 for Miami, but with James struggling again, the Heat dropped their third straight to match their longest losing streak of the season. James scored 17 points on 8-of-23 shooting.

In overtime, it was all Bulls.

Lakers 114, Thunder 110 - Jodie Meeks scored 24 of his career-high 42 points in the second half, and host Los Angeles beat Oklahoma City despite a triple-double by Thunder star Kevin Durant, who had 27 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists. It was his third triple-double this season.

Nets 104, Kings 89 - Marcus Thornton scored 15 of his 27 points in the fourth quarter against his old team and Joe Johnson added 18 points, helping Brooklyn overcome an injury to Paul Pierce in a win over visiting Sacramento. - AP
