The Indiana Pacers claimed a share of the Central Division lead Monday as David West scored 29 points and Paul George had 21 points, 11 rebounds and five assists in a 110-101 win over the Chicago Bulls.

The Pacers have won three straight games and 14 at home, matching their longest home winning streak since 2002-03.

Marco Belinelli had a season-high 24 points and Nate Robinson had 19 to lead the Bulls, who lost for only the third time in nine games.

Washington's Martell Webster scored 21 points as the Wizards beat the Los Angeles Clippers 98-90.

The Clippers, playing without the injured Blake Griffin and Chris Paul, watched as the Wizards pulled away with a 7-0 run late in the fourth quarter, spurred by a pair of big offensive rebounds by Nene.

Nene and Garrett Temple scored 15 points each.

Jamal Crawford scored 28 points, and DeAndre Jordan had a career-high 22 rebounds for the Clippers.

LeBron James scored 31 points and Chris Bosh added 23 at Miami to lead the Heat to a 99-84 win over the Bobcats for their its 10th consecutive victory over Charlotte.

Dwyane Wade had 20 points and 12 rebounds for the Heat, who have won nine of their last 10 at home. James was 13 for 14 from the field, for a career-best 93 percent shooting.

Ramon Sessions scored 18 points for Charlotte, which lost its fourth in a row and 12th in the last 14.

At New York, Tyson Chandler equaled a franchise record with his third straight 20-rebound game and Carmelo Anthony scored 27 points as the Knicks cruised past the Detroit Pistons 99-85 for their fifth consecutive victory.

In a game that was decided early, Chandler played long enough to grab his 20th rebound midway through the fourth quarter. After grabbing 20 in victories on Friday and Saturday night, he became the first Knicks player to have 20 in three straight games since Hall of Famer Willis Reed in December 1969.

Newly acquired Jose Calderon scored 15 points in his Detroit debut, while Greg Monroe had 13 points and 10 rebounds.

At Oklahoma City, Russell Westbrook scored 24 points, and Kevin Durant had 19 points and 10 rebounds as Oklahoma City downed the Dallas Mavericks 112-91, while LaMarcus Aldridge had 25 points and 13 rebounds to help the Portland Trail Blazers edged the Minnesota Timberwolves 100-98.

In other games, the Utah Jazz beat the Sacramento Kings 98-91 in overtime and the Philadelphia 76ers downed the Orlando Magic 78-61.
