Heat Ends Lakers Perfect Streak 103-86

MIAMI -- Tim Hardaway got 22 points, eight rebounds and seven assists and the Miami Heat defense slowed down coach Pat Riley's former team to score a 103-86 win over the previously unbeaten Los Angeles Lakers.


After getting off to the best start in franchise history, the Lakers (11-1) on Tuesday became the last team to lose this season. The Atlanta Hawks also lost after starting their season with 11 victories.


"To a point, the higher you are when you fall, the more it hurts," Lakers coach Del Harris said. "On the other hand, it is better to be 11-1 than anything less than that."


Nick Van Exel scored 21 points and Elden Campbell had 17 with seven rebounds for the Lakers, who were held to their lowest total of the season and 25 below their league-leading average.


Jamal Mashburn contributed 22 points and Isaac Austin added 19 points and nine rebounds.


SuperSonics 91, Bulls 90. In Seattle, Vin Baker drained the go-ahead jumper with three seconds to play and partially blocked Toni Kukoc's 3-point attempt as time expired to lead the SuperSonics to their fifth straight win, 91-90 over the Chicago Bulls.


Gary Payton had 22 points and 12 assists and Baker 19 points and 12 rebounds for Seattle (11-3), which beat the Bulls for the first time since Game 5 of the 1996 National Basketball Association Finals.


Michael Jordan scored 26 points and his leaner off the glass gave the Bulls an 89-84 lead with 1:25 to play, but Seattle reeled off a 7-1 spurt to end the game. The Bulls fell to 2-5 on the road.


Hornets 90, Pistons 85. In Charlotte, Glen Rice scored 13 of his 21 points in the first quarter and added two baskets late in the fourth quarter to help hold off a rally and give the Hornets their fifth straight win, 90-85 over the slumping Detroit Pistons.


Charlotte (9-3), off to the best start in franchise history, has won nine of its last 10 games.


Brian Williams had 27 points and 10 rebounds and Grant Hill added 19 points for Detroit, which lost its fourth straight road game and dropped five games under .500 (5-10).


Spurs 102, Mavericks 91. In Dallas, David Robinson had 22 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks and Jaren Jackson had two big baskets down the stretch as the San Antonio Spurs nearly blew a 26-point lead before handing the Mavericks their 10th straight loss, 102-91.


The Mavericks, who opened the season 3-0, moved halfway toward matching their longest losing streak in team history.


Nets 101, Warriors 87. At Golden State, David Benoit scored six straight points in the fourth quarter as the New Jersey Nets turned to their bench to break open a close game and beat the Warriors 101-87.


New Jersey led 73-71 after three quarters, but coach John Calipari decided to sit all five starters and go with Benoit, Michael Cage and Xavier McDaniels in the frontcourt and guards Sherman Douglas and Kevin Edwards. The Nets outscored the Warriors 28-16 in the period.


Golden State's Donyell Marshall had 25 points and a career-high 22 rebounds.
