Miami, FL ( – LeBron James took the reins Tuesday and poured
in 33 points as the Miami Heat pummeled the overmatched Bucks, 118-95. Perhaps
spurred by Saturday’s late collapse against the Celtics, James looked for his
shot more often and connected on 13-of-21 from the floor. James, who did not
play in the fourth quarter with Miami firmly in control, made four of the
Heat’s 12 3-pointers and was followed on the scoring sheet by Michael Beasley
(19 points) and Mario Chalmers (15). Miami shot a scorching 58 percent from
the field and limited Milwaukee to 42 percent shooting while forcing 18
turnovers. Gary Neal and John Henson scored 18 points apiece to pace the
Bucks, whose starters combined for just 35 points.

Final Score: Dallas 105, Washington 95

Dallas, TX ( – Dirk Nowitzki scored 19 points on a night he
passed an NBA legend on the all-time scoring list, and the Dallas Mavericks
downed the Washington Wizards, 105-95, at American Airlines Center. Nowitzki
leapt over the great Jerry West for 15th place among the league’s top scorers
and is 82 points shy of Reggie Miller’s 25,279-point total. The German
sharpshooter had some help from his teammates in keeping the Mavs unbeaten in
four games at home. Monta Ellis added 19 points and seven assists, Vince
Carter scored 16 off the bench and Samuel Dalembert netted 15. Trevor Ariza
drained five 3-pointers en route to a game-high 27 points, but the Wizards
still suffered their seventh straight loss to Dallas.
