Glen Davis, playing for the first time since Jan. 30 because of a broken left foot, scored 20 points for the Magic, who fell to 0-5 on the road. Arron Afflalo and Victor Oladipo had shots in the final 5 seconds, but neither fell and Miami escaped.

Harden, who leads the Rockets with 24.2 points per game, sat out with a sore left foot. Lin started in his place and scored 19, but it was Brooks who shined.

The Celtics outrebounded the Hawks 47-38 and held the Hawks to 38.7 percent shooting.
Trailing 85-84 with 3:17 to play, the Celtics scored seven straight to take a 91-85 lead with 46 seconds to play.

Michael Carter-Williams scored 29 points and Evan Turner had 21 points and 11 rebounds for the short-handed 76ers. Spencer Hawes, the team's second-leading scorer, didn't dress because of a sore left knee and Tony Wroten (back) and Thaddeus Young (personal) didn't travel with the team, leaving the Sixers with just nine players in uniform.
Lance Stephenson added 18 points and David West had 17 points and 11 rebounds in Indiana's third straight win, while George Hill finished with 11 points. The Pacers (12-1) are 7-0 at home.
James Anderson scored 13 in the Sixers' fifth loss in six games and fourth straight road loss.
WIZARDS 98, KNICKS 89
WASHINGTON (AP) - Taking their poor play at home with them on the road, the New York Knicks allowed Washington's John Wall to score 31 points and dropped into a last-place tie in the Atlantic Division with a loss to the Wizards.
Wall registered at least 30 points in consecutive games for the first time in his NBA career, after scoring 37 in a loss to Toronto on Friday. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 draft also had seven assists and a soaring block on Iman Shumpert's layup attempt in the closing seconds.
Washington has won three of four games and is 5-8. The Knicks fell to 3-9, the same record as the Brooklyn Nets.
Marcin Gortat added 16 points and 17 rebounds for the Wizards, while Martell Webster scored 19, and Bradley Beal 18. That made up for a paltry six points from Washington's reserves.
Carmelo Anthony led New York with 23 points and 12 rebounds, and J.R. Smith scored 15.
