MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Rudy Gay hit a fadeaway jumper over LeBron James at the buzzer, and the Memphis Grizzlies took advantage of Dwyane Wade's absence to beat the Miami Heat 97-95 on Saturday night and snap a five-game losing streak.
James tied it for the 12th time, dunking off Eddie House's steal against Gay with 5.5 seconds left. Gay came back with the winning 13-foot jumper in front of the Heat bench.
Wade sprained his left wrist Friday night. Udonis Haslem went down with 1:25 left in the third quarter and had to be carried off the floor to the locker room with a sprained left foot. X-rays were negative, and he will be re-evaluated Sunday.
James finished with 29 points and 11 assists, and House had a season-high 20 as the Heat lost for the first time in four games. Chris Bosh also had 20.
The Grizzlies won despite coach Lionel Hollins benching starters Zach Randolph and O.J. Mayo for a quarter as punishment for being a couple minutes late to the pregame shootaround. Randolph led Memphis with 21 points and 13 rebounds.
MAVERICKS 98, HAWKS 93: At Atlanta, Dirk Nowitzki scored 21 points, Jason Terry added 15 and Dallas snapped a two-game skid.
Hawks guard Joe Johnson couldn't shake Tyson Chandler's tight defense and misfired on a 3-point attempt that would have tied it with 2.5 seconds remaining.
Nowitzki followed with a pair of free throws to seal the victory for Dallas, which has won four of five on the road.
Al Horford finished with 20 points and 20 rebounds for the Hawks, who had won two straight. Josh Smith had 21 points and six steals.
THUNDER 82, BUCKS 81: At Milwaukee, Russell Westbrook scored 18 points, making two free throws with 7.3 seconds left to lift Oklahoma City to the win.
The Thunder again were without NBA scoring leader Kevin Durant, who missed his second consecutive game with a sprained left ankle. Jeff Green was also on the sidelines for a fourth straight game — seventh overall — with a sprained left ankle.
James Harden had 23 points and nine rebounds for Oklahoma City.
Brandon Jennings led the Bucks with 25 points.
MAGIC 90, PACERS 86: At Indianapolis, Jameer Nelson converted a go-ahead three-point play with 33 second left, leading the Magic to the victory.
Dwight Howard scored 19 of his 25 points in the second half, helping Orlando recover from a 52-49 halftime deficit. Rashard Lewis made five 3-pointers and finished with 21 points.
The Magic trailed 86-85 when Nelson was fouled by T.J. Ford on a 10-foot jumper and converted the resulting free throw.
Howard also had 12 rebounds and blocked three shots for Orlando, which limited Indiana to 34 points in the second half. Nelson finished with 11 points.
The Pacers had five players score in double figures but shot just 39 percent from the field. Roy Hibbert had 19 points and 10 rebounds, reserve Brandon Rush had 14 points and Danny Granger had 13.
SPURS 116, CAVALIERS 92: At San Antonio, Tony Parker scored 19 points and San Antonio picked up its 10th consecutive win.
Off to their best start in franchise history, the Spurs improved their NBA-best record to 11-1 while extending their longest winning streak in nearly three years.
Mo Williams scored 21 points and Daniel Gibson had 17 for the Cavaliers, who played a night after losing on the road to New Orleans — the only team to beat San Antonio so far.
Rookie Tiago Splitter, in the 7-footer's biggest game since the Spurs made him their marquee addition this summer, scored 18 points on 7-of-10 shooting.
