Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Ray Allen drained the go-ahead baseline jumper with under two minutes remaining and LeBron James narrowly missed a triple- double, as the Miami Heat topped the Atlanta Hawks, 95-89, at Philips Arena.
The Heat played without star guard Dwyane Wade, who remained at the team hotel due to a cold.
James, who had 21 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists, hit a key jumper with 13.6 seconds left. Chris Bosh had 24 points and Allen netted 17.
James limped off the court with 36.4 seconds left in the first half after banging knees with Josh Smith. James was driving to the hoop when his right knee collided with Smith's left knee. James exited immediately to the locker room, but was on the court to start the second half.
Allen drove the right baseline and hit a shot over Kyle Korver with 1:22 left for a 91-89 lead. After Smith missed a pair of free throws, James canned a pull-up jumper.
Jeff Teague had 20 points to pace the Hawks.
