Andre Iguodala and Harrison Barnes sunk three-pointers early in the fourth quarter to jump start the defending champions after the game was tied 93-93 after the third.

James Harden weighed in with 37 points for the visitors, who are now without a win against their Western Conference rivals in seven regular season meetings.

Dwayne Wade top-scored with 20 points for the Heat, with Chris Bosh chipping in with 18. Hassan Whiteside registered 14 points and six rebounds but was ejected in the fourth quarter.

John Wall had 28 points and added 17 assists and Bradley Beal scored 26 to guide the Washington Wizards to a 111-108 win over the New York Knicks.

Wall made four crucial free throws in the final seconds of the game, before New York failed to convert what would have been a game-tying three-pointer at the buzzer.

Carmelo Anthony had 33 points and 13 rebounds for the Knicks but interim head coach Kurt Rambis, taking charge for the first time since Derek Fisher was fired this week, was unable to stop the franchise from losing their sixth straight game.

Khris Middleton made one of two free throws with just 0.6 seconds left as the Milwaukee Bucks edged a 112-111 win over the Boston Celtics. They had been up by as much as 19 points in the fourth quarter before a late Boston surge.

Greg Monroe, starting from the bench, was the star of the night as he scored 29 points and added 12 rebounds to help Jason Kidd's team snap a five-game losing streak.

The loss for the Celtics, meanwhile, was only their second in the past 10 games. Jae Crowder and Avery Bradley both put up 18 points in the loss.

Gordon Hayward scored the crucial basket at the buzzer in overtime to help the Utah Jazz extend their season-best winning streak to seven with 121-119 triumph over the Dallas Mavericks.

The 25-year-old secured the win after Rodney Hood had sent the game into overtime with a three-pointer of his own for Utah at the end of regulation.

Hood was the game's top scorer with 29 points, whilst Hayward finished the night with 20 points.

For the Mavericks, Chandler Parsons led the way with 24 points whilst Dirk Nowitzki was one rebound shy of a double-double, ending with 17 points and nine boards.
