New Jersey's rookie centre Mason Plumlee blocked LeBron James' dunk attempt with two seconds left as the Nets beat the Miami Heat 88-87 for their fourth victory and a season series sweep.

James had 29 points, 10 rebounds and six assists to lead the Heat (53-24), who still lead the Indiana Pacers by a half-game in the battle for the top seed in the Eastern Conference.

Joe Johnson had 19 points for the Nets (43-34), who are in fifth place in the Eastern Conference and became the first team to beat the Heat four times in the regular season since 2007-08.

Elsewhere, Detroit guard Rodney Stuckey scored 29 points and Andre Drummond dominated inside with 19 points and 17 rebounds, lifting the Pistons to a 102-95 win over the Hawks.

Four months after they were scheduled to play each other in Mexico City but never did, the Minnesota Timberwolves blew out the San Antonio Spurs 110-91 in a makeup game.

Dirk Nowitzki scored 21 points and moved into the tenth spot on the NBA's all-time scoring list in the Dallas Mavericks' 95 83 victory over the Utah Jazz.
