MIAMI (AP) - LeBron James became the first player in NBA history to score 30 points and shoot at least 60 percent in six straight games, Chris Bosh scored 32 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, and the Miami Heat held off the Portland Trail Blazers 117-104 on Tuesday night.
James scored 30 points on 11 for 15 shooting and Dwyane Wade added 24 points for Miami, which wasted a pair of 14-point leads - then put the game away with a 14-0 run in the final minutes. Ray Allen added 14 for Miami.
Damian Lillard had a game-high 33 points for Portland, which got 29 from LaMarcus Aldridge and 20 from Wesley Matthews.
It was the 1,000th regular-season win in Heat history. But on this night, the only history anyone will remember was what James accomplished.
RAPTORS 109, NUGGETS 108
TORONTO (AP) - Rudy Gay hit a pull-up jump shot with less than five seconds remaining and Toronto beat short-handed Denver.
DeMar DeRozan scored 22 points, Gay had 17 and John Lucas scored 12 of his 14 points in the final quarter as the Raptors won their third straight.
It was the second game-winner in three games for Gay, who beat Indiana with an overtime jumper last Friday.
Kyle Lowry had 11 points and 10 assists and Alan Anderson had 10 for Toronto, which made seven 3-pointers in the fourth quarter.
Ty Lawson led Denver with 29 points, Kenneth Faried had 15 points and 11 rebounds and Anthony Randolph scored 16.

GRIZZLIES 108, KINGS 101
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Marc Gasol had 24 points and 12 rebounds, Mike Conley scored 22 points and Memphis beat Sacramento.
