(Newser) – Mike Dunleavy had 36 points and Indiana used a 10-2 run late in the third to pull away from Toronto, 122-111. The biggest loss tonight for the Raptors wasn't the game but that of Chris Bosh, who left in the first quarter with a sore right knee. Currently fourth in the East, Toronto was led by Andrea Bargnani's 27 points. Elsewhere:

  • LeBron James bounced back from a sprained ankle with 30 points and 13 assists, as Cleveland fought off a late Minnesota comeback to win 92-84. James missed a triple-double by two rebounds.
  • Atlanta went ahead on an alley-oop dunk from Mike Bibby to Josh Smith with just over a minute remaining as the Hawks topped the Knicks, 99-93.
