Heat delivers another pounding in ninth straight win

MIAMI — The Heat trailed early before making its move at the end of the third quarter and won by double figures for the ninth game in a row, beating the Hornets 96-84 on Monday night.

Dwyane Wade had 32 points, topping 30 for the third straight game, and Chris Bosh added 23 points and 11 rebounds. Miami blew it open with an 18-2 spurt that put it up 94-77.

"This was for us one of the most gratifying wins, because it was a grind-out game," Wade said. "We were able to stick to it until our time finally came."

GAME HIGHLIGHTS: Carlos Boozer had 22 points and 18 rebounds to lead the host Bulls to their sixth straight win, 92-73 over the Pacers. … The visiting Bucks rallied from a 20-point second-quarter deficit for a 103-99 victory that ended the Mavericks' 12-game winning streak.

AROUND THE LEAGUE: Bucks forward Drew Gooden was active after missing five games with a foot problem. … Jazz center Francisco Elson, a native of the Netherlands, missed the game against the Warriors because of a delay with his visa renewal in Canada.
