Domantas Sabonis scored 21 points and grabbed 16 rebounds to lead Indiana to a win at Phoenix.

With the game tied at 104 with under a minute to play, Bojan Bogdanovic, the league’s top 3-point shooter, cashed in from the corner to give the Pacers a 107-104 lead. After Devin Booker just missed a 3-point try, Darren Collison was fouled and made two free throws to clinch the game for Indiana with 12 seconds left.

Six players scored in double figures for the Pacers, who also got 21 points from Doug McDermott. T.J. Warren paced the Suns with 25 points, and rookie Deandre Ayton recorded his 12th double-double with 18 points and 12 rebounds.

Rookie Trae Young had a double-double with 17 points and 10 assists as Atlanta edged host Miami.

Trailing by two points, the Heat had the ball after a timeout with 14.4 seconds left in the fourth quarter. However, Dwyane Wade, coming off a 35-point game, passed up an open jumper on the left wing and got the ball to Josh Richardson, whose 3-point attempt missed off the front rim to end the game.

Miami, which has lost six consecutive home games, was led by Richardson, who scored nine of his 22 points in the fourth quarter. Atlanta won its second straight game overall and also snapped a seven-game road losing skid.
