INDIANAPOLIS — David West had 28 points and seven rebounds, and the Pacers overcame the ejection of Roy Hibbert following a fourth-quarter scuffle to beat the Warriors, 108-97, Tuesday night.

West also was called for a technical foul, along with the Warriors' David Lee, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, for the altercation that began with 6:10 remaining in the game.

George Hill had 23 points and seven assists, and Paul George had 21 points and 11 rebounds for the Pacers (36-21), who have won five straight.

Curry scored a season-high 38 points and Thompson had 13 for the Warriors (33-24), who had a three-game winning streak snapped.

The skirmish began when Lee and Hibbert exchanged shoves under the basket after a missed shot with 6:10 remaining in the fourth quarter. Curry tried to push Hibbert away and was shoved to the court as the fight went from the key to the foul line.

Heat 141, Kings 129 (2OT) — LeBron James had 40 points and 16 assists, Dwyane Wade scored 39 and the Heat pushed their winning streak to 12 games.

Ray Allen added 21 for the Heat, who remained six games clear of second-place Indiana in the Eastern Conference standings.

Cavaliers 101, Bulls 98 — In Chicago, Dion Waiters scored 25 points to help make up for the absence of Kyrie Irving, and the Cavaliers snapped an 11-game losing streak against the Bulls.

While Irving rested a sore right knee in street clothes on the sideline, Waiters converted a fadeaway jumper and a layup before Tyler Zeller drove along the baseline for a layup that helped Cleveland open an 87-78 lead with 7:33 left in the game.

Magic 98, Sixers 84 — In Philadelphia, Arron Afflalo and Tobias Harris scored 16 points apiece, and the Magic snapped a 10-game road losing streak.

The Magic won for just the seventh time all season on the road while also snapping a five-game skid overall.

Nets 101, Hornets 97 — In New Orleans, Deron Williams scored 33 points, Brook Lopez added 20 while playing against his twin brother, Robin, and the Nets snapped a two-game skid.

Williams did not score for much of the second half, but drained a timely 3-pointer with 1:24 left, then added a fadeaway jumper, followed by six free throws in the final 18.7 seconds to seal it.
