Wade shoots 48 points but can't stop Magic beating Heat again

Even a career-high 48 points by Dwyane Wade wasn't enough for Miami to beat Orlando on Friday.
The Magic survived a late-game rally by the Heat to win 121-114 in overtime, giving coach Stan Van Gundy a victory in his return to south Florida.
Wade scored 20 points in the fourth quarter alone, but still Miami fell to 8-22.
Miami's Daequan Cook sent the game to overtime with a long 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds left in regulation, then tied the game again on another 3 with 1:18 left for Miami. But HedoTurkoglu scored the next five points, sealing Orlando's seventh straight win in matches between the Florida rivals.
Trail Blazers 109, Timberwolves 98
In Portland, Oregon, Brandon Roy scored 22 points despite not playing the second quarter, and Portland got its league-leading 12th straight victory by beating Minnesota.
The streak matches Portland's best run since winning 12 in a row during the 2001-02 season, the team's second-longest stretch. Portland's longest streak was 16 games in the 1990-91 season.
Minnesota has the league's worst record at 4-24. The Timberwolves fell to 1-14 on the road.
Lakers 123, Jazz 109
In Los Angeles, Phil Jackson pulled even with Red Auerbach in regular-season victories as the Los Angeles Lakers downed Utah.

Jackson will get a chance to pass Auerbach when the Lakers host Boston on Sunday.
Nuggets 124, Warriors 120
In Oakland, California, Allen Iverson scored 39 points, including a late jumper to break a tie, and Denver edged Golden State.

Hornets 99, Bobcats 85
At Charlotte, North Carolina, David West had 20 points and 10 rebounds, and New Orleans turned in another dominating performance to down Charlotte.
