Miami Heat Lose on Last-Second Basket in NBA; Brooklyn Nets Win

Draymond Green scored on a layup in the final second to give the Golden State Warriors a 97-95 National Basketball Association win at the defending-champion Miami Heat, who didn’t score in the game’s final three minutes.

Klay Thompson had 27 points to lead the Warriors (15-7), who have won the first five games of a seven-game road trip. LeBron James had 31 points for Miami (14-6), which fell 1 1/2 games behind the New York Knicks for the best record in the Eastern Conference.

The Knicks (16-5) host the Los Angeles Lakers tonight at Madison Square Garden.

Also last night, the Brooklyn Nets broke a five-game losing streak with a 94-88 win at the Toronto Raptors. Joe Johnson had 23 points to lead Brooklyn (12-9), which was missing leading scorer Brook Lopez for the seventh straight game because of a sprained right foot.
