CLEVELAND — Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 15 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter Friday night as the Atlanta Hawks, despite resting center Dwight Howard and missing three other key starters, stunned the Cleveland Cavaliers, 114-100.

The Hawks, who beat Boston on Thursday night, outworked and outgunned the Cavaliers, who blew a chance to move closer to securing the top seed in the Eastern Conference with a flat performance.

Mike Dunleavy added 20 for Atlanta and got a little revenge against the Cavs, who tossed him in as part of a trade for Kyle Korver in February. The Hawks recorded 39 assists.

It was a shocking letdown by the Cavs, who were so impressive Wednesday night in a victory against the Celtics.

But they lacked energy from the outset and the Hawks took advantage.

RAPTORS 96, HEAT 94: DeMar DeRozan scored 38 points and Toronto won its final home game of the regular season.

DeRozan broke Vince Carter’s franchise record with his 31st 30-point game of the season, shooting 14 of 32 from the floor. Carter set the mark in 2000-01.

GRIZZLIES 101, KNICKS 88: Mike Conley scored 31 points and Memphis won at home to clinch the No. 7 seed in the Western Conference.

Conley was 12 of 17 from the field, including 7 of 11 from 3-point range, to lead six Grizzlies in double figures as Memphis snapped a three-game losing streak. The Grizzlies will face second-seeded San Antonio in the first round of the playoffs.

PISTONS 114, ROCKETS 109: Stanley Johnson hit a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 32.4 seconds left and added two free throws to lift Detroit at Houston.

The Rockets led by two after a dunk by Montrezl Harrell before Ish Smith made a basket to tie it. James Harden missed a 3-pointer on the other end, and Johnson’s 3-pointer made it 110-107.

SPURS 102, MAVERICKS 89: Bryn Forbes scored a career-high 27 points with San Antonio resting most of its starters, and the visiting Spurs ran past Dallas after the Mavericks pulled most of their key veterans in the second half.

Dewayne Dedmon, the only San Antonio starter to play, had 10 points and 13 rebounds. Tony Parker made the trip but didn’t leave the bench, and Kawhi Leonard, LaMarcus Aldridge, Pau Gasol and Danny Green stayed home with the Spurs, locked in to the No. 2 seed.


WARRIORS: Kevin Durant returned to practice and experienced no issues with his left knee, and will play Saturday night against New Orleans.

ADAM SILVER, the commissioner, said Charlotte will be eligible to host the 2019 All-Star Game after a recent change to a North Carolina law that limited anti-discrimination protections for lesbian, gay and transgender people.
