    Forward Luol Deng had 23 points as Miami snapped its five-game home losing streak, defeating Boston 100-84 at AmericanAirlines Arena.

    The skid at home was the Heat's longest since March of 2008. Even with the win, the Heat are just 5-9 at home this season. That's in contrast to last season, when the Heat went 32-9 at home.

    Elsewhere, guards Lou Williams and Kyle Lowry each scored 22 points as Toronto defeated the New York Knicks 118-108.

    Lowry added nine assists as the Raptors extended their winning streak to six games to equal a season-high and gave the Knicks their fifth loss in a row.

    Cavaliers 105, Grizzlies 91

    Dion Waiters scored 21 points off the bench, guard Kyrie Irving had 17 points while tying his career high with 12 assists and the Cavaliers handed the short-handed Grizzlies their worst loss of the season - a 105-91 defeat.
