    Dwyane Wade scored a season-best 27 points in his return to the Miami Heat in a 86-79 win over the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.

    Wade missed the Heat's last seven games with a hamstring injury. Without the all-star guard in the lineup, Miami (8-8) were 3-4.

    Elsewhere, the San Antonio Spurs got their coach back on the bench and celebrated by rolling to their seventh straight win, a 111-89 victory over the floundering Boston Celtics.

    Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, who missed two games for a minor medical procedure, saw his team blow a nine-point first-quarter lead and then recover from a nine-point second-quarter deficit to improve to 12-4.

    Golden State won their ninth straight game and completed a sweep of a five-game road trip for the first time since 1978 with a 104-93 win over the Pistons.

    Magic 93, Suns 90
