Tuesday's HIGHLIGHTS

Heat 104, Raptors 95: LeBron James scored a season-high 35 points, Dwyane Wade had 20, and Miami beat Toronto for its first road victory in three tries this season.

James became the fifth NBA player to score 10 points or more in 500 consecutive games. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (streaks of 787 and 508 games), Michael Jordan (866), Karl Malone (575) and Moses Malone (526) previously accomplished the feat.

Mavericks 123, Lakers 104: Monta Ellis had 30 points and nine assists, and Dirk Nowitzki was one of seven Dallas players in double figures with 11 points as the Mavericks beat Los Angeles. Ellis was 11 of 14 from the field, hit all eight of his free throws and had just one turnover.

"The lane was wide open, so I just attacked, and when they came over, I passed the ball and that's what we wanted," said Ellis, who had at least 30 points and eight assists for the second time in his four games with Dallas. "Me being aggressive opened everything else up."

Bobcats 102, Knicks 97: Kemba Walker scored 25 points, Gerald Henderson added 18, and Charlotte withstood a late run by New York. Carmelo Anthony scored 32 points to lead the Knicks but was 10 for 28 from the field. New York lost starting center Tyson Chandler midway through the first quarter with a right-knee injury.

Pacers 99, Pistons 91: Paul George scored 31 points, and Indiana remained the NBA's only unbeaten team with a victory over Detroit.
