The two-time defending champion Heat, who have lost three of four, gave up the ground they gained in the standings Friday by beating Indiana at home and taking a one-half game lead over the Pacers.

WIZARDS 194, BUCKS 91
WASHINGTON (AP) - Bradley Beal scored 26 points, and the Washington Wizards moved a step closer to claiming the No. 6 seed in the Eastern Conference with a win over the Milwaukee Bucks, whose loss guaranteed they will finish with at least a tie for the worst record in the NBA.
John Wall added 15 points and eight assists for the Wizards, who also clinched the franchise's first winning record since 2008 - which was also the last time they made the playoffs.
Washington leads the seventh-place Charlotte Bobcats, who beat the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday, by one game with two to play. The Bobcats hold the tiebreaker if Washington and Charlotte finish tied. Both teams are hoping to finish higher than seventh in order to avoid a first-round series against Miami or Indiana.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Al Jefferson continued his dominating play with 29 points and 12 rebounds, and the Charlotte Bobcats defeated the Philadelphia 76ers for their sixth win in seven games.
It marked the sixth straight game Jefferson had at least 20 points and 10 rebounds in a game - extending his own franchise record.
The Bobcats (41-39) remained one game behind the Washington Wizards in the race for the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference with two games left in the regular season. The Wizards defeated Milwaukee 104-91 on Saturday night.
Michael Carter-Williams had 23 points and eight assists to lead the 76ers, who have lost 16 of their last 17 games on the road.
Avery Bradley also scored 25 points for the Celtics, who built a 33-point lead early in the fourth quarter before Cleveland's reserves cut into the margin. Boston snapped a 13-game road losing streak and won for the first time away from home since Feb. 10. The Celtics have won consecutive games for the first time since early March.
Kyrie Irving scored and Dion Waiters each scored 15 points for Cleveland, but neither played in the fourth quarter that began with Boston leading 89-58.
Ellis and Nowitzki brought the Mavericks back by hitting five 3-pointers between them in less than 4 minutes of the third quarter, erasing most of a 13-point deficit. Then, they teamed to get the lead back in the fourth, and Dallas held on in the final minutes.
The Mavericks left the Suns and Memphis to battle for the last playoff spot in the Western Conference. Dallas is back in the postseason after a 12-year playoff streak ended last season.
Randy Foye added 26 points and Evan Fournier 23 for the Nuggets, who trailed most of the night before sending Utah to its fourth straight loss and evening the season series with their rivals at two games each.
Foye's 3-pointer with 6:54 left gave Denver its first lead of the night at 77-76.
