MIAMI — Jimmy Butler scored 24 points to lead seven Miami players in double figures, Tyler Herro and Gabe Vincent each scored 18 and the Heat held off the Utah Jazz 119-115 on Monday night.

Bam Adebayo scored 16 for Miami, and Victor Oladipo and Kevin Love each had 11 and Caleb Martin scored 10.

Lauri Markkanen scored 38 for Utah, which got 23 from Simone Fontecchio and 14 from Ochai Agbaji.

Miami was 31 for 36 from the foul line, compared with 13 for 18 for the Jazz.

Talen Horton-Tucker put Utah on top with a short jumper with 1:16 left, and Herro gave Miami the lead right back on a 3-pointer with 55.3 seconds remaining.

It stayed a two-point game until the final seconds; Agbaji missed a short shot in the lane that was contested by Adebayo, who got the rebound, was fouled and made two free throws with six seconds left to seal the win.


TIMBERWOLVES 136, HAWKS 115: Anthony Edwards scored 32 points in his hometown, Kyle Anderson had his third career triple-double and Minnesota won at Atlanta.

Trae Young finished with 41 points for the Hawks, who dropped to 3-5 under new coach Quin Snyder and have lost four of six. Atlanta went 4 for 22 beyond the arc and handed out 17 assists compared to 39 for Minnesota.

Edwards, a former No. 1 overall draft pick who starred at Georgia and grew up in Atlanta, dazzled with several dunks, one of which put the Timberwolves up 91-67 midway through the third. The lead soon swelled to a game-high 28 on a layup by Mike Conley, who finished with 21 points.

GRIZZLIES 104, MAVERICKS 88: Desmond Bane scored 23 points and visiting Memphis won a second consecutive game against Dallas with all three All-Stars out.

Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving were out for Dallas with injuries, and Ja Morant remained away from the Grizzlies because of his issues off the court.

Doncic is dealing with a left calf strain that required an MRI, which revealed no significant damage. Irving has right foot soreness.


With all three absent just as they were in Memphis’ 112-108 victory Saturday to start the home-and-home, rookie David Roddy played a big role for the Grizzlies again.

The 23rd overall draft pick scored 19 points on 8-of-11 shooting two nights after getting 17 of his career-high 24 points in the fourth quarter, when Memphis erased an 11-point deficit.

Morant is away from the team after posting a video recently in which the 23-year-old two-time All-Star appeared to be displaying a gun at a Denver-area strip club.

PISTONS 117, PACERS 97: James Wiseman had 18 points and 14 rebounds as host Detroit ended an 11-game losing streak.

The Pistons, who hadn’t won since beating San Antonio 138-131 in double overtime on Feb. 10, led by 31 points in the first half and held off an Indiana surge late in the second quarter and early in the third.
