Oklahoma City, OK (SportsNetwork.com) - Jamal Crawford went 5-for-8 from beyond the arc as he scored 36 points to help the Los Angeles Clippers beat the Oklahoma City Thunder, 125-117, on Sunday. Matt Barnes deposited 24 points and Blake Griffin had 20 points with seven rebounds and six assists for the Clippers, who snapped a two-game losing streak. Chris Paul contributed an 18-point, 12-assist double-double, while DeAndre Jordan finished with 18 points and 12 rebounds in the win. Kevin Durant's 42-point, 10-assist effort was all for naught as the Thunder dropped two straight at Chesapeake Energy Arena for the second time this season and just the third time since the beginning of the 2011-12 season. Serge Ibaka tallied 20 points and Derek Fisher went 5-for-7 from beyond the arc and finished with 15 points in the setback.

Final Score: Miami 93, Chicago 79

Miami, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Playing without LeBron James, the Miami Heat had no problem dispatching the Chicago Bulls on Sunday thanks to the rest of the Big 3. Chris Bosh scored 28 points with 10 rebounds and Dwyane Wade added a 23-point, 10-rebound double-double to help the Heat to a 93-79 win. James missed the contest because of a broken nose that he suffered in Thursday's lopsided win over the Oklahoma City Thunder, and the Heat expect him to be back in the lineup when they face the Knicks at home this coming Thursday. Mario Chalmers deposited 12 points with nine assists and Ray Allen contributed 10 points off the bench in Miami's fifth straight win. Joakim Noah finished with 20 points and a game-high 15 rebounds and Taj Gibson netted 20 points with 10 boards for Chicago, which had its season-high tying five-game winning streak snapped.
