NBA DAILY FOR WEDNESDAY, FEB. 10
Recap of Tuesday's NBA games
Aldridge scores 28 and Spurs run away from Heat, 119-101
The AP reports: Within seven points early in the fourth quarter, the Miami Heat had reason to believe they could knock off the San Antonio Spurs.
Those hopes were dashed in a mere 16 seconds.
LaMarcus Aldridge scored 28 points, Kawhi Leonard added 23 and the Spurs got seven points on one possession to help them beat the Heat 119-101 on Tuesday night - the sixth straight time San Antonio has topped Miami, going back to the 2014 NBA Finals.
Danny Green scored 15 for the Spurs, who have won five straight.
Middleton's free throw lifts Bucks over Celtics 112-111
The AP reports: Greg Monroe isn't used to being out of the starting lineup.
Benched at the start of Tuesday night's game against the Boston Celtics, the Milwaukee Bucks center responded with a huge game. He scored 29 and grabbed 12 rebounds to spark his team to end a five-game losing streak with a 112-111 victory... The Bucks benched Monroe and Michael Carter-Williams and inserted into the starting lineup Miles Plumlee and O.J. Mayo, who was returning from a lengthy injury absence... Middleton had 20 points and Carter-Williams added 16.
Jae Crowder and Bradley had 18 points each for the Celtics.
Wall, Wizards ruin Rambis' Knicks debut with 111-108 win
The AP reports: The Washington Wizards put the New York Knicks in the same kind of hole under Kurt Rambis they kept falling into under Derek Fisher.
John Wall had 28 points and 17 assists, Bradley Beal scored 26, and the Wizards beat New York 111-108 on Tuesday night in the Knicks' first game under Rambis.
Wall made four free throws in the final 6.6 seconds and the Wizards handed the Knicks their sixth straight loss when Langston Galloway's 3-pointer at the buzzer was just short after Washington failed to foul intentionally as planned... Anthony had 33 points and 13 rebounds, but the Knicks have dropped 10 of 11.
Porzingis scored 20 points, but just two after his 14-point third quarter.
Hayward lifts Jazz over Mavs 121-119 in OT for 7th straight
The AP reports: Gordon Hayward and the Utah Jazz now have a win that coach Quin Snyder views as validation for the hot streak his young team is enjoying.
Hayward hit the winning jumper at the buzzer in overtime after Rodney Hood's tying 3-pointer in the final seconds of regulation, and the Jazz extended their season-best winning streak to seven games with a 121-119 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night... Hood finished with 29 points - three shy of his career high about a month earlier against Memphis - and Hayward had 20, including 13 in the second half and overtime.
Chandler Parsons led Dallas with 24 points but missed an open 3-pointer for the lead with 24 seconds left in the Mavericks' second straight overtime game and NBA-high eighth of the season.
Curry scores 35, Warriors beat Rockets 123-110
The AP reports: Stephen Curry and the Golden State starters got a big boost from their bench.
Curry had 35 points, nine assists and six rebounds, and the Warriors put away the Houston Rockets in the fourth quarter of a 123-110 victory Tuesday night... Andrew Bogut added 13 points, 11 rebounds, three steals and a season-high six blocked shots - three in the fourth - during one of his best games yet.
