Bryant scores 33 to lead Lakers over Rockets

Kobe Bryant sank a 3-pointer with 27 seconds left and scored 33 points as the Los Angeles Lakers beat the undermanned Houston Rockets 105-100 on Tuesday.
Bryant scored 13 points in the fourth quarter, finally getting the better of Houston's Von Wafer, who scored a career-high 23 points in place of the injured Tracy McGrady.
Carl Landry had a season-high 21 points and eight rebounds for the Rockets, who also played without Ron Artest.
McGrady is out at least two weeks to fully recuperate from a sore left knee that's bothered him for months. Artest has missed five of the last six games with a sprained right ankle. An MRI exam also showed a bone bruise that the Rockets say will keep him out seven to 10 more days.
Cavaliers 102, Grizzlies 87
At Memphis, Tennessee, LeBron James had 30 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists for his second triple-double of the season, leading Cleveland over Memphis.
James scored only nine points in the opening half, then had 17 in the third quarter and completed his triple-double with a behind-the-back pass to J.J. Hickson for a layup in the fourth.
Delonte West added 19 points and Mo Williams 16 for the Cavs.
Kyle Lowry led the Grizzlies with a career-high 25 points, including 15 from the free-throw line, and reserve Hakim Warrick had 16 points and seven rebounds.
Heat 99, Wolves 96
At Minneapolis, Dwyane Wade had 31 points and eight assists, and Shawn Marion hit the go-ahead free throws with 22 seconds left to lead Miami past Minnesota.
Randy Foye scored 14 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter, but it wasn't enough to get the Timberwolves their sixth straight victory.
Marion finished with 16 points and 11 boards.
Bobcats 80, Pistons 78
At Auburn Hills, Michigan, Raymond Felton's jump shot with 0.7 seconds left gave Charlotte the victory over Detroit.
The Bobcats scored the game's final nine points, including seven from Felton, to win their second straight.
Richard Hamilton returned after missing eight games with a groin strain, meaning the Pistons went back to a three-guard lineup despite going 6-2 without Hamilton.
Felton led the Bobcats with 23 points. Gerald Wallace added 18 points and 10 rebounds.
Rodney Stuckey scored 22 points for Detroit.
