MIAMI — LeBron James’ jumper with 15.1 seconds left put Miami ahead for good as the Heat rallied from 16 points down in the second half to beat the Orlando Magic 101-99 on Saturday.

Dwyane Wade scored 27 points in his return to the lineup after missing two games to rest his knees, James added 22 and Chris Bosh had 15 for the Heat, who have won six straight.

Glen Davis, playing for the first time since Jan. 30 because of a broken left foot, scored 20 points for the Magic, who fell to 0-5 on the road. Arron Afflalo and Victor Oladipo had shots in the final 5 seconds, but neither fell and Miami escaped.

Afflalo scored 18, Oladipo added 17 and E’Twaun Moore had all of his 14 points in the first half for Orlando, which let one slip away.

Kings 103, Clippers 102 Chris Paul scored 22 points, hitting a go-ahead free throw with 2.5 seconds left, to help the Clippers beat the Sacramento Kings after Los Angeles blew a 20-point lead in the first half.

DeAndre Jordan had 17 points and 12 rebounds, and Blake Griffin finished with 16 points and 10 boards for the Clippers, who have won 11 of their last 13 against the Kings. J.J. Redick added 15 points.

Paul’s NBA-record streak of 13 straight games with at least 10 points and 10 assists to start a season ended when he finished with nine assists.

DeMarcus Cousins had 23 points and 19 rebounds for the Kings, who had won two in a row.

Trail Blazers 113, Warriors 101 LaMarcus Aldridge had 30 points and 21 rebounds as Portland beat Golden State for its 10th consecutive win.
