NBA: Scorching Heat take commanding 2-0 lead over Knicks

MIAMI — Dwyane Wade scored 25 points, Chris Bosh added 21 and Miami beat New York 104-94 on Monday night, sending the Knicks to an NBA-record-tying 12th straight postseason loss.

Making matters worse for the Knicks: center Amare Stoudemire cut his left hand in a postgame incident.

"I am so mad at myself right now, I want to apologize to the fans and my team, not proud of my actions, headed home for a new start," Stoudemire wrote on Twitter after the Knicks left the arena.

Stoudemire left the building with his arm in a sling and what appeared to be a bulky wrap over his left hand.

LeBron James finished with 19 points, nine assists and seven rebounds for the Heat, who lead the Eastern Conference first-round series 2-0.

New York's last postseason win came April 29, 2001. The Knicks get another chance to snap the drought Thursday when they host Game 3.

PACERS 93, MAGIC 78: At Indianapolis, David West had 18 points and 11 rebounds to help Indiana even the Eastern Conference first-round series at one game apiece.

Danny Granger and George Hill each added 18 points and Paul George had 17 points and eight rebounds for Indiana.

Glen Davis led the Magic with 18 points and 10 rebounds, but he shot 5 for 16 from the field. J.J. Redick scored 13 points for Orlando.

THUNDER 102, MAVERICKS 99: At Oklahoma City, Russell Westbrook scored 29 points, Kevin Durant added 26 in an off-shooting performance and the Thunder clawed out a over defending champion Dallas lead in the first-round playoff series.

Durant hit two free throws with 50.4 seconds left to give Oklahoma City a 98-97 lead, and James Harden hit four more foul shots to close it out for the Thunder.
