NBA ROUNDUP \ Monday's other games

SuperSonics 98, Heat 96
MIAMI -- Ray Allen scored 35 points, Rashard Lewis added 17 points and 13 rebounds and the Seattle SuperSonics snapped the Heat's franchise-record 14-game winning streak. With the score 98-95, Lewis fouled Miami's Eddie Jones on a 3-point try with 0.4 seconds remaining. But the Heat guard -- a 78.7 percent shooter entering the game -- connected on only one of three free-throw attempts, the last of which he missed intentionally. Allen shot 12-of-25 from the field, including 6-for-10 from 3-point range for Seattle, which won its sixth straight road game and improved to 10-3 against the Eastern Conference. Dwyane Wade had 23 of his 28 points after halftime for Miami, which led for only six of the game's 48 minutes. Shaquille O'Neal had 25 points, 14 rebounds, seven blocks and four assists for the Heat, who were outrebounded 46-36. The loss denied Miami's bid for the NBA's first 15-game winning streak since O'Neal's Los Angeles Lakers won 19 straight in the 2000 season.
Raptors 105, Magic 94
TORONTO -- Chris Bosh tied his career-high with 25 points and Morris Peterson scored a season-high 21 to lead the Toronto Raptors over the slumping Orlando Magic. Bosh also had 12 rebounds for the Raptors, who ended a three-game losing kid. Steve Francis had 19 points for the Magic, who have lost four straight overall and six in a row on the road. Orlando got off to another slow start, trailing by as many as 16 points in the first half. In their previous three losses the Magic trailed by as many as 19, 11 and 25 in the first half.
Celtics 108, Hornets 90
BOSTON -- Paul Pierce had 19 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists for his fourth career triple-double, and Raef LaFrentz had 14 points and 12 rebounds as Boston sent the Hornets to their eighth consecutive loss. Ricky Davis added 23 for Boston, which had lost four of its previous five games. Lee Nailon and Baron Davis scored 18 apiece for New Orleans, which fell to an NBA-worst 2-27.
Grizzlies 92, Jazz 82
MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Pau Gasol scored 25 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and keyed a third-quarter rally as the Memphis Grizzlies won their season-high fourth consecutive game. Gasol, who had 17 points in the third quarter as Memphis took the lead, was 9-of-15 from the field to help send the Jazz to their sixth straight loss. Utah has dropped nine of its last 10. Carlos Arroyo tried to keep the Jazz close in the fourth period, scoring 13 of his 15 points. Carlos Boozer led Utah with 20 points and 15 rebounds.
Pistons 87, Bulls 80
CHICAGO -- Richard Hamilton scored 28 points, 20 in the second half, and Ben Wallace had 16 rebounds and seven points.
