ORLANDO, Fla. -- LeBron James finished with 24 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds, and the Miami Heat won their 27th straight game by running away in the final minutes to beat the Orlando Magic 108-94 on Monday night.
The Heat now are within six games of matching the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers for the longest winning streak in NBA history. It was the 250th win for Heat coach Erik Spoelstra as well.
Miami was without Dwyane Wade, sidelined by a sore right knee. The Magic were again missing Nik Vucevic, sidelined with a mild concussion.
HORNETS 110, NUGGETS 86
Roberts, a rookie making his second start, had 11 assists by halftime, two more than his previous best. Anderson was 5 of 11 on 3-pointers, and the Hornets sank 14-of-25 3s as seven players scored in double figures.
WIZARDS 107, GRIZZLIES 94
Wall shot 13 of 22 from the field and made a career-high 19 free throws on 24 attempts.
Mike Conley led Memphis with 23 points.
It was Washington's sixth straight home win, while Memphis dropped its fourth straight road game.
Already without guard Bradley Beal (sprained left ankle), guard A.J. Price (groin) and forward Trevor Ariza (flu), Wizards coach Randy Wittman announced before the game that forwards Nene (sore right knee) and Martell Webster (abdomen strain) were also out.
Memphis center Marc Gasol missed his second straight game after aggravating an abdominal tear Friday at New Orleans.
PACERS 100, HAWKS 94
The Pacers (44-27) extended their Central Division lead to five games over second-place Chicago with 11 games to play. And they did it despite playing without Danny Granger, George Hill, Lance Stephenson or David West. All four sat out with injuries.
They also won on a night that Atlanta (39-32) could have clinched a playoff spot.
