(MENAFN -Arab News) CHICAGO: Taj Gibson made a layup at the buzzer in overtime, lifting the Chicago Bulls to a 102-100 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday night.

With nine-tenths of a second left, Mike Dunleavy inbounded from underneath the basket and found Gibson cutting down the middle. The athletic forward then muscled toward the hoop for the winning basket, which was confirmed by a video review by the officials.

Joakim Noah had 17 points and 21 rebounds for Chicago (20-20), which has won eight of 10 to get back to .500 for the first time since Nov. 27. D.J. Augustin had a season-high 27 points, and Jimmy Butler finished with 13 points and 11 rebounds.

Nick Young had 31 points for the Lakers (16-26), including a tying baseline jumper with 6 seconds left in overtime.

Rockets center Dwight Howard added 24 points and 12 rebounds while James Harden totaled 22 points on a big offensive night for Houston (28-15), who shot 52.3 percent from the floor, including 16 of 33 three-pointers.

Portland forward LaMarcus Aldridge recorded 27 points and 20 rebounds for the Trail Blazers (31-10).

Hawks 121, Heat 114: Paul Millsap scored 26 points and helped the Hawks end a nine-game losing streak to the Heat.

The Hawks (21-19) trailed 107-104 midway through the fourth quarter but went on a quick 10-1 run to regain full control.

LeBron James scored 30 for Miami (29-12), who have lost four of their last six games.

Dwyane Wade missed his third straight contest, resting his ailing knee, while Chris Bosh added 21 for the two-time defending NBA champions.

Pelicans 95, Grizzlies 92: The New Orleans Pelicans broke their eight-game losing skid and halted the Memphis Grizzlies’ five-game winning streak.

Anthony Davis led the Pelicans (16-24) with 27 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks while converting a jumper that put his team up 95-91 with 35 seconds left.

Memphis (20-20) power forward Zach Randolph had 23 points and a season-high 20 rebounds.

The Knicks (15-26) were led by forward Carmelo Anthony’s 26 points, but he received next to nothing from his supporting cast.

New York scored just 16 points in the first quarter and never fully recovered.

Mavericks 102, Cavaliers 97: Monta Ellis scored a team-high 22 points and had eight assists in the Dallas Mavericks’ victory over the Cavaliers.

Ellis missed two free throws with 3.4 seconds left and Dallas (25-18) clinging to a 100-97 lead, but Cleveland’s Jarrett Jack could not get the ball inbounds and was called for a critical five-second violation.

Kyrie Irving had a game-high 26 points and nine assists for the Cavs (15-26).

Clippers 112, Pistons 103: Reserve guard Jamal Crawford had 26 points and power forward Blake Griffin supplied 25 to lead the Los Angeles Clippers to a victory over the Detroit Pistons.

J.J. Redick added 20 points and six assists for the Clippers (29-14), who have won six of their last seven games.

Rodney Stuckey had a season-high 29 points and forward Josh Smith contributed 24 but the Pistons (17-24) lost for the seventh time in its last eight home games.

Wizards 107, 76ers 99: Bradley Beal had 22 points and nine rebounds and matched his career high with eight assists as the Washington Wizards defeated the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Wizards (20-20) led comfortably throughout the day game.

Michael Carter-Williams scored 31 points for the 76ers (13-28), who have lost three straight and seven of eight games.

Bocats 100, Raptors 95: Ramon Sessions scored 23 points, and center Al Jefferson had 22 points and 19 rebounds as the Charlotte Bobcats beat Toronto.

Pacers 102, Warriors 94: Guards Lance Stephenson and George Hill hit three-pointers in the final 3:02 to thwart a Golden State rally as the Indiana Pacers won their fifth consecutive game.

The Warriors trailed just 91-87 before Stephenson drilled a three-pointer to push the Indiana lead to seven with 3:02 to play.

Stephen Curry had 24 points to lead the Warriors (26-17).
