  • SALT LAKE CITY — Randy Foye had 20 points, including six in overtime, and the Utah Jazz defeated the Sacramento Kings 98-91 on Monday night.
    Paul Millsap added 14, with a key block, step-back jumper and rebound in the extra session for the Jazz, who used an 8-0 fourth-quarter run to take the lead with 2:40 left in regulation.
    Utah had a chance to win it in regulation, but big man Al Jefferson shot an air ball 3-pointer at the buzzer.
    Jason Thompson led the Kings with a season-high 23 points, and Tyreke Evans added 20 but had a key turnover in overtime.
    Sacramento played the second half without leading scorer DeMarcus Cousins, who was ejected for arguing with officials at midcourt during the halftime break.
    Cousins started 4 of 4 and finished 5 of 8 with 10 points and six rebounds.
    Alec Burks had a season-high 14 points for Utah, including a 19-foot shot on the run that gave Utah a 90-87 lead in overtime.
    The Jazz won despite being without point guards Mo Williams and Earl Watson and third-leading scorer Gordon Hayward.
    Pacers 111, Bulls 101
    At Indianapolis, David West scored 29 points and Paul George had 21 points, 11 rebounds and five assists, leading Indiana past short-handed Chicago for a share of the Central Division lead.
    The Pacers have won three straight and extended their home winning streak to 14, matching the team's longest since 2002-03.
    Wizards 98, Clippers 90
    At Washington, Martell Webster scored 21 points, and Washington broke a four-game losing streak against a Los Angeles team missing Blake Griffin and Chris Paul.
    With Griffin nursing a strained left hamstring and Paul still dealing with a bruised right kneecap, the Wizards pulled away with a 7-0 run late in the fourth quarter, spurred by a pair of big offensive rebounds by Nene.
    Heat 99, Bobcats 94
    At Miami, LeBron James scored 31 points and Chris Bosh added 23 to lead Miami to its 10th consecutive victory over Charlotte.
    Dwyane Wade had 20 points and 12 rebounds for the Heat, who have won nine of their last 10 at home. James was 13 for 14 from the field, for a career-best 93 percent shooting. The Heat improved to 19-3 on their home floor.
    Knicks 99, Pistons 85
    At New York, Tyson Chandler tied a franchise record with his third straight 20-rebound game, Carmelo Anthony scored 27 points, and New York cruised to its fifth consecutive victory.
    In a game that was decided early, Chandler played long enough to grab his 20th rebound midway through the fourth quarter. After grabbing 20 in victories on Friday and Saturday night, he became the first Knicks player to have 20 in three straight games since Hall of Famer Willis Reed in December 1969.
    Kyle Singler scored five points on 2-for-5 shooting. He hit a 3-pointer and added a pair of rebounds and an assist.
    Newly acquired Jose Calderon scored 15 points in his Detroit debut, while Greg Monroe had 13 points and 10 rebounds.
    Thunder 112, Mavericks 91
    At Oklahoma City, Russell Westbrook scored 24 points, Kevin Durant had 19 points and 10 rebounds, and Oklahoma City avoided a third straight overtime game against Dallas.
    The Mavericks had tied the first two meetings this season with 3-pointers at the very end, but there was no such drama the third time around.
    76ers 78, Magic 61
    At Philadelphia, Spencer Hawes had 21 points and 14 rebounds and Jrue Holiday had 13 points and 14 assists to lead Philadelphia to its third straight win.
    Nick Young had 15 points for the Sixers, who won three straight games for the first time since the final three games of November.
