The Associated Press

MIAMI - Dwyane Wade scored 26 points, LeBron James finished with 24 points and seven assists, and the Miami Heat snapped a two-game slide by topping the New Orleans Hornets 106-90 on Saturday night.

Chris Bosh scored 13, and Ray Allen and Shane Battier each added 11 for Miami, which took control by outscoring the Hornets 33-10 over the final 11 minutes of the first half.

SAN ANTONIO 132, CHARLOTTE 102: Danny Green scored 23 points, and visiting San Antonio set a franchise record with 19 3-pointers to hand Charlotte its seventh straight defeat.

Green was 7 of 9 from 3-point range, and the Spurs shot 56 percent from behind the arc.
