Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork. Jake Matthews Jersey .com) - Paul Millsap and Mike Scott scored 20 points apiece and the sizzling Atlanta Hawks beat the Detroit Pistons 93-82 on Monday for their 13th consecutive win. Atlanta has won 27 of its last 29 games and is one victory shy of tying the longest winning streak in franchise history set in 1993. Al Horford, named Eastern Conference Player of the Week on Monday, accounted for 14 points, seven assists and six rebounds in the win. Greg Monroe had a big game in defeat, scoring 16 points and tying a career high with 20 rebounds. Fellow big man Andre Drummond totaled 13 points and 18 rebounds for Detroit. The first quarter was a forgetful one for both teams. Detroit did not seem to enjoy the early start time, missing its first seven shots from the floor. Atlanta slowly built an 8-0 lead over the opening minutes before Drummonds dunk gave the Pistons their first points 4:34 into the game. The Hawks shot just 31.8 percent (7-of-22) from the floor over the first 12 minutes, limited Detroit to 24 percent (6-of-25) shooting and took a 16-12 lead into the second. Both offenses ramped up the production a little in the second, with Atlanta grabbing a 44-41 lead at the break. Anthony Tollivers 3-pointer cut the Pistons deficit to 60-59, but the Hawks ended the final 1:39 of the third on an 8-2 run. Scott scored eight straight points for Atlanta early in the fourth, then Kent Bazemore buried a corner 3 moments later to give the Hawks an 83-74 lead. Monroe followed with a pair of free throws, but seven points was the closest Detroit got down the stretch. Game Notes Detroit had a two-game winning streak snapped ...

It was fitting. Miami took Charlottes best shot, and survived. James scored 32 points and added eight assists, Chris Bosh scored 20 points and the Heat wasted two big leads before hanging on to beat the Bobcats 101-97 on Wednesday night to take a 2-0 lead in their Eastern Conference first-round series. Dwyane Wade scored 15 points, and had a steal in the final seconds to seal the win for Miami. He stripped the ball from Chris Douglas-Roberts with the Heat protecting a three-point lead with about 3 seconds left, and the Bobcats never got another shot off. "A very instinctual, high-risk play," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "The balls there and you know you have an opportunity to get it when most people cant get that, and that saved the game." Game 3 is Saturday in Charlotte. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist scored 22 points for Charlotte, which got 18 points and 13 rebounds from Al Jefferson, who played through a left plantar fascia strain and shot 9 for 23 from the floor. "Hes not anywhere close to 100 per cent," Bobcats coach Steve Clifford said. "But we can play through him. ... Youve got to respect the fact hes out there battling. He has no mobility, basically. Limited mobility and yet he had 18 and 13, and he fought hard." So was McRoberts -- maybe too hard for Miamis liking. Miamis lead was 97-94 with 50 seconds left when James drove and was met at the rim by McRoberts, whose right elbow struck the four-time NBA MVP around his chin. James immediately began grabbing at his throat and needed much longer than he usually does to get up after a hard foul, which was not called flagrant. Said McRoberts, who insisted it wasnt intentional: "It looked a lot worse than what it was." James hit the second of his two free throws, making it a two-possession game -- and that was critical. Kemba Walker made a 3-pointer with 11.9 seconds left too get Charlotte within one, but the Bobcats didnt score again. Isaiah Oliver Jersey. "I think were still really confident," Walker said. "We just have to learn from our mistakes. ... Were going to dissect these guys as well as we can and get ready for the next one. I think we have a chance, man." Walker finished with 16 and Gerald Henderson scored 15 for the Bobcats. Mario Chalmers scored 11 for Miami. So while the Heat were saying that all they have done was hold serve at home, its hard to find a real silver lining for Charlotte. Not only have the Bobcats now lost 18 consecutive games against Miami, but the Heat have never dropped any of the previous 11 post-season series in which theyve grabbed a 2-0 series lead. James, between his time in Cleveland and Miami, is 11-0 in such situations. Wade has been part of nine previous 2-0 leads with the Heat, and six of those series ended in no more than five games. Miamis lead was 91-77 midway through the fourth, and after blowing a big first-half lead, it appeared as though the Heat finally had some breathing room. A few minutes later, it looked a whole lot different. Walker, Kidd-Gilchrist and Douglas-Roberts combined on a 10-0 run, getting the Bobcats within 91-87. But Bosh scored on consecutive possessions, pushing the Heat lead to eight with 3:36 remaining. "We got out of our here with the win, but were going to have to tighten up a little bit," Bosh said. "We had a little bit of slippage today." Miami led 57-47 at the half, and the Bobcats -- who missed 17 of their first 22 shots -- were fortunate, after facing a 16-point deficit at one point in the early going. And while Charlotte kept coming back, it never led in the final 41 minutes. NOTES: Jefferson has not shot a free throw in the series. ... James has signed with William Morris, which will represent him in entertainment-related projects. ... Game 3 will be Charlottes first playoff home game since April 26, 2010, against Orlando. No current Bobcats appeared in that game -- but Heat F Rashard Lewis did, for Orlando.
