Hawks turn back Heat

By Associated Press

POSTED:



MIAMI » Josh Smith made a go-ahead layup with 34.7 seconds left in overtime, Joe Johnson scored 19 points and the Atlanta Hawks beat Miami 93-89 last night to send the Heat to a fourth straight loss.

Johnson had a game-tying layup with 25.4 seconds left in regulation and two game-sealing free throws with 5.2 seconds remaining in overtime.

LeBron James scored 34 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for Miami, but missed a long 3-pointer at the end of regulation and another 28-foot try as the shot clock was expiring late in overtime and the Heat down by two. Dwyane Wade scored 27 for the Heat, who played without Chris Bosh.

Bobcats 83, Bulls 82

Gerald Wallace had 13 points and 16 rebounds and visiting Charlotte snapped a three-game losing streak. Derrick Rose scored 33 points to lead Chicago, but missed a shot at the buzzer.
