Rockets can’t stay with Heat

HOUSTON — LeBron James scored a season-high 38 points, Chris Bosh had 24 points and 10 rebounds, and the Miami Heat rallied to beat the Houston Rockets 113-110 on Monday night.

Dwyane Wade added 19 points for the Heat, who shot 47.6 percent from 3-point range (10 of 21) and 51 percent from the field overall.

Chandler Parsons scored a career-high 25 points and Omer Asik had a career-best 19 points and 14 rebounds for the Rockets, who led 110-106 with 90 seconds left.

James went 3 for 4 from the free throw line over the next minute, then drove for the go-ahead layup with 19 seconds left.

Jeremy Lin shot an airball from 3-point range with 10 seconds left, Wade caught it and the Heat escaped with their sixth straight win over Houston.

The Heat, coming off a 104-86 loss in Memphis on Sunday, looked as though they might blow out Houston early when they opened the game with a 20-5 spurt. Miami started 8 for 12 from the field, while the Rockets missed nine of their first 11 shots.

Wade won the individual matchup with James Harden early on, too, holding him scoreless through the first 8 minutes.

Celtics 101Bulls 95

CHICAGO — Rajon Rondo had 20 points, nine rebounds and 10 assists to lead Boston over Chicago.

Rondo took advantage of Bulls point guard Nate Robinson for three quarters, helping the Celtics build a 12-point lead on 56 percent shooting. He extended his streak of consecutive games with 10 or more assists to 31, the longest in the NBA since John Stockton had 37 straight from Feb. 27 to Nov. 29, 1989.

Brandon Bass led four other Celtics in double figures with 16 points as Boston held off a furious late Chicago rally to snap a five-game losing streak at the United Center. Kevin Garnett had 15 points.

Luol Deng led the Bulls with 26 points and 11 rebounds.

The Celtics became the first team to score 100 points against the Bulls since April 8 last season, ending a streak that had reached 15 straight games.
