Bobcats have no match for Bosh

Associated Press
CHARLOTTE ó Chris Bosh scored 32 points and Toronto remained alone in sixth place in the Eastern Conference with a 104-100 victory against the Charlotte Bobcats on Monday.
Bosh hit 13 of 16 free throws and added eight rebounds and five assists for the Raptors, who won for the third time in four games to pull a game ahead of idle Philadelphia in the playoff race.
Anthony Parker added 20 points and T.J. Ford added 15, including the clinching free throw with 1.9 seconds left for the Raptors, who bounced back from a home loss to New Orleans on Sunday.
Jason Richardson scored 18 of his 26 points in the first half, Gerald Wallace scored 20 points and Emeka Okafor had 18 points and 12 rebounds for the Bobcats.
Pacers 105, Heat 85
INDIANAPOLIS ó Jermaine OíNeal scored nine points for Indiana after sitting out for more than two months with a knee injury.
OíNeal shot 3-for-4 from the field and 3-for-4 from the free-throw line in 18 minutes. He had missed 33 straight games with a bone bruise, and the Pacers went 12-21 during that stretch.
Danny Granger led Indiana with 23 points and Mike Dunleavy added 18 as the Pacers won their second straight and their sixth of eight.
Hawks 116, Grizzlies 99
MEMPHIS, Tenn. ó Josh Smith had 26 points, eight rebounds and six assists as Atlanta built an early lead.
The Hawks led by 38 in the third quarter and seemed to be coasting to the victory. However, Memphis opened the fourth with 13 consecutive points, part of a 23-4 run that made the game more interesting. However, the Hawksí advantage was just too much to overcome and they won for the fourth time in five games.
Jazz 129, Wizards 87
SALT LAKE CITY ó C.J. Miles scored a career-high 29 points and Utah set a team record with 15 3-pointers in a rout of short-handed Washington. Deron Williams added 12 points and 16 assists despite resting most of the fourth quarter.
