CHICAGO — Pau Gasol had 29 points, 16 rebounds and five blocked shots, and the Chicago Bulls beat the Boston Celtics 109-104 in overtime on Saturday.

Aaron Brooks added 19 points for the Bulls, who won for the ninth time in 10 games. Taj Gibson and Derrick Rose had 12 points apiece.

Evan Turner scored 24 of his 29 points after halftime, but Boston dropped to 2-6 since trading Rajon Rondo to the Dallas Mavericks on Dec. 18. Avery Bradley had 17 points for the Celtics.

The Bulls were without starters Jimmy Butler (bereavement leave) and Mike Dunleavy (right ankle). Rookie Nikola Mirotic scored 10 points in his first start, and Kirk Hinrich replaced Butler for the Bulls’ ninth different starting lineup of the season.

ROCKETS 115, HEAT 79: James Harden scored 28 points, Dwight Howard added 23 and host Houston rolled to a win over Miami, rebounding quite nicely from its most lopsided loss of the season.

Coach Kevin McHale said his team was “terrible” in a 111-83 loss at New Orleans on Friday night. But the Rockets used a 19-point second quarter from Howard to build a double-digit lead against Miami, and then put together a big run in the third before coasting to their biggest win of the season.

Houston’s starters were benched early in the third quarter against New Orleans by a disgusted McHale. On Saturday night, they spent the fourth quarter on the bench with the Rockets leading by 34 after three.

Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh scored 15 apiece for Miami, which has lost four in a row.

HORNETS 98, MAGIC 90: Kemba Walker scored 30 points, and Charlotte won at Orlando to stop a five-game losing streak.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had 17 points and 12 rebounds for Charlotte, which had dropped its first two games this season against Orlando. Gary Neal added 16 points and Cody Zoeller finished with 12.

Victor Oladipo scored 21 points for the Magic, and Nik Vucevic had 20 points and 10 rebounds. Tobias Harris also had a double-double with 18 points and 11 boards.

Orlando has dropped three in a row.

JAZZ 101, TIMBERWOLVES 89: Trey Burke bounced back from a horrendous shooting night to score a season-high 28 points, and Utah handed host Minnesota its 11th straight loss.

After going 2 for 19, including 0 for 11 from 3-point range, against Atlanta on Friday, Burke hit 10 of 16 shots and 4 of 6 3-pointers.

Rudy Gobert added 13 points, 11 rebounds and six blocks to help the Jazz roll on the second night of a back-to-back. The Jazz have won six of their last nine.

Andrew Wiggins scored 20 points, but the Timberwolves shot just 39.5 percent and missed 10 of their first 11 3-pointers. They have won just once in their last 18 games.
