Un-Happy Birthday for LeBron: Heat beat Cavs

Un-Happy Birthday for LeBron: Heat beat Cavs

Dwyane Wade had 21 points and 12 assists and Mario Chalmers added 21 points and eight assists as the Miami Heat dropped LeBron James' pro record on birthdays to 0-3 with a 104-95 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday.
On the day he turned 24, James scored a fitting 24 of his 38 points in the second half, almost enough to rally Cleveland out of its biggest deficit of the season, a 16-point hole at halftime.
But the Heat put it away with a 16-3 run over a 4-minute stretch of the final quarter, handing the Cavs just their fifth loss in 31 games this season.
Daequan Cook scored 17 points _ with all five field goals being 3-pointers _ and Shawn Marion had 14 points and 11 rebounds. Udonis Haslem added 13 points and 10 rebounds for Miami.
Delonte West scored 20 for Cleveland, which had won six straight.
Hawks 110, Pacers 104
At Indianapolis, Joe Johnson scored 12 of his 27 points in the fourth quarter to help streaking Atlanta beat Indiana.
Josh Smith had 24 points, Mike Bibby scored 15 and Al Horford added 12 points and 14 rebounds for the Hawks, who have won six straight games and nine of 10.
Danny Granger had 25 points, Jarrett Jack 22 and Jeff Foster finished with 12 points and 12 rebounds for the Pacers in their fourth consecutive loss.
After the Pacers cut Atlanta's lead to one on Jack's three-point play with 1:36 left, Johnson drained a 3-pointer to make it 108-104. Granger missed a layup on the Pacers' ensuing possession, and Johnson hit two free throws to finish the scoring.
Knicks 93, Bobcats 89
At Charlotte, North Carolina, Wilson Chandler scored seven of his 19 points in the final 4 minutes, and New York beat Charlotte to snap a six-game losing streak and improve to 2-0 against former coach Larry Brown.
The Knicks recovered from blowing a 17-point lead and stayed perfect against Brown, who was fired after a miserable 23-59 record in 2005-06 season and is in his first season with the struggling Bobcats.
Al Harrington added 16 points and six rebounds in his second straight game off the bench for the Knicks, who also got 13 points and 16 rebounds from David Lee.
Gerald Wallace scored 21 points and Boris Diaw had 20 points against his former coach in Phoenix, Mike D'Antoni, who said he was treating Tuesday's game as a playoff game to get his struggling Knicks in sync.
