Dwyane Wade had 32 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists, and Miami earned its franchise-record 15th consecutive victory with a win over host Minnesota on Monday.

LeBron James shrugged off a sore left knee to score 20 points and grab 10 rebounds.

"If he has two legs working, two arms working, he's out there," Wade said of James. "He's built to withstand a lot. But we don't take that for granted."

The Heat led by six with eight minutes to play when Timberwolves guard J.J. Barea was ejected after getting a flagrant-2 foul for a hit on Miami guard Ray Allen. The Heat then went on a 17-5 run to put away the game.

Bucks 109, Jazz 108: Monta Ellis scored 34 points, Brandon Jennings added 20 points and 17 assists, and host Milwaukee beat Utah in overtime.

J.J. Redick scored 17 for the Bucks, including their first eight in overtime.

Knicks 102, Cavaliers 97: Amare Stoudemire scored 22 points, and New York overcame a 22-point deficit and the loss of Carmelo Anthony to a knee injury to win in Cleveland.

The Knicks trailed 52-30 in the second quarter when Anthony got twisted up after catching a pass near midcourt and dropped to the floor.

"It's just sore, not pain, sore and stiffness," he said.

Nuggets 104, Hawks 88: Corey Brewer scored 22 points and Ty Lawson had 18 as host Denver defeated Atlanta.
