Heat wins without Wade, top Cavs 86-81

Shaquille O'Neal had 19 points and 11 rebounds and Miami held Cleveland to 36 percent shooting on the way to beating the Cavaliers 86-81 on Sunday _ the Heat's first win since guard Dwyane Wade dislocated his shoulder last week.
Jason Kapono had 17 points and 11 rebounds and Alonzo Mourning added 15 points in 18 minutes for the Heat (27-28), who improved to 2-7 without Wade, the reigning NBA finals Most Valuable Player Award winner who suffered the shoulder injury on Wednesday and is expected to miss several weeks.
Cleveland center Zydrunas Ilgauskas, playing his first game since his wife went into pre-term labor and delivered stillborn twins earlier this month, had eight points and nine rebounds before fouling out with 1:50 left.
Pistons 95, Bulls 93
In Auburn Hills, Michigan, Chris Webber made a putback with 2.2 seconds left and matched a season high with 21 points to lift Detroit over Chicago.
Following a timeout, Ben Gordon missed a 3-point shot just before time expired.
In his first game at The Palace since leaving to play for Chicago, Ben Wallace wanted to get a reaction from the crowd and he got one. Wallace was greeted by a mix of jeers and cheers when he was introduced, then was jeered virtually every time he touched the ball. He finished with six points, eight rebounds, four assists, three steals and two blocks.
Rockets 97, Magic 93
IN Orlando, Florida, Tracy McGrady had 34 points, including a rally-deflating 20-foot jumper with 33 seconds left, to help Houston beat Orlando.
Rafer Alston added 20 points and reserve Luther Head had 15 for the Rockets, who made 14 of 27 3-point attempts.
Grant Hill had 21 points to lead Orlando, which lost its fourth straight.
Timberwolves 98, Wizards 94
In Minneapolis, Ricky Davis and Kevin Garnett combined for 53 points and Minnesota held on to beat Washington.
Davis scored 27 points and Garnett finished with 26 points and 17 rebounds for the Timberwolves, who ended a three-game slide by beating Washington at home for the seventh straight season.
DeShawn Stevenson scored 21 for Washington, which lost its second straight.
