ATLANTA The Atlanta Hawks won the NBA's first replay since 1983, holding off the Miami Heat 114-111 in overtime on Saturday night in the completion of a protested game.
The Hawks then won the regularly scheduled contest 97-94 as Joe Johnson matched a season high with 39 points.
The teams opened the night by replaying the final 51.9 seconds of a Dec. 19 game, which was protested by the Heat after the Atlanta stat crew mistakenly ruled Shaquille O'Neal had fouled out in the extra period. O'Neal wasn't even around for the do-over, having been traded to Phoenix last month.
The game resumed from the point of the protest and neither team scored during their brief time on the court. They got a 15-minute break, then returned to the court for their regularly scheduled game.
ROCKETS 106, HORNETS 96: At Houston, Tracy McGrady scored 41 points and the Rockets stretched their winning streak to 18 games.
Houston has won its last nine games by double digits and moved into a tie with the Hornets in the overall conference standings. The Rockets also made a season-high 14 3-pointers, improving to 6-0 since Yao Ming went out with a foot injury.
Chris Paul had 37 points and 11 assists for the Hornets, who had won five of their last six.

WARRIORS 104, MAGIC 95: At Orlando, Fla., Baron Davis scored 33 points and Stephen Jackson had 20 as Golden State overcame a slow start.
The Warriors shot only 35 percent in the first half, but Jackson and Davis sparked a 33-16 run in the third period to seize control of the game. Monta Ellis added 16 points and Al Harrington 14 as the Golden State finished a four-game East Coast swing 3-1.
