Heat prevents Mavericks from capitalizing on late rally, 125-110


DALLAS (AP) – Four Miami Heat players collected 22 or more points by delaying a late Dallas rally to beat the Mavericks 125-110 on Tuesday night.

Tyler Herro scored 25 points off the bench, 15 alone in the second quarter when the Heat outscored the Mavericks 46-32 to take a 70-62 halftime lead. Jimmy Butler added 23 points, Kyle Lowry scored 22 and Bam Adebayo scored 22 and took 13 rebounds.

Luka Doncic scored a high 33 points for the Mavericks, who lost for the first time in four home games.

Jalen Brunson added a high of 25 points in his first start of the season, necessitated by injuries that sidelined Dallas big men Kristaps Porzingis and Maxi Kleber.

BUCKS 117, PISTONS 89

DETROIT (AP) – Giannis Antetokounmpo had 28 points, nine assists and eight rebounds in Milwaukee‘s rout in Detroit.

The Bucks, who ended a three-game losing streak, also got 16 points from Pat Connaughton and reserve Jordan Nwora.

Jerami Grant led the Pistons (1-6) with 21 points, but Trey Lyles was the only other player to hit double the numbers with 13.

Cade Cunningham, the No.1 pick in this summer’s draft, got 2 for 14 in his second NBA game, including 0 of 9 behind the 3-point line. He’s shooting 13.6% (3 of 22) so far and has missed all 14 attempts by 3 points.

The Bucks increased their lead to 29 points in the third quarter and headed for the easy win.
