Dwyane Wade scored 15 of his 32 points in the fourth quarter, including a jumper with 13.6 seconds remaining to break a tie and help the Miami Heat beat the visiting Portland Trail Blazers, 108-104, on Wednesday night.
Wade made 13 of 26 shots for the Heat, who were down by 11 shortly after halftime. Luol Deng had 24 points on 4-for-4 shooting from three-point range for Miami, which got 20 points and 11 assists from Goran Dragic and a 12-point, 10-rebound night from Hassan Whiteside.
LaMarcus Aldridge had 34 points and 12 rebounds for Portland, which fell a half-game behind Houston in the race for third in the Western Conference.
An Oden comeback?
Ohio State coach Thad Matta says former Buckeyes star Greg Oden has been training on campus and could attempt another NBA comeback.
Matta, preparing to face Virginia Commonwealth in the NCAA tournament, said the 7-foot center has been doing "high-level training" the last six months with coaches at Ohio State and weighs about 280 pounds.
"Quite honestly, I haven't seen Greg look this good since when he played for us back in the day at Ohio State," Matta said.
Oden played 82 games in five seasons for Portland. He last appeared in a game for the Trail Blazers in December 2009 and played 23 games for the Heat last season.
Fisher files for divorce
New York Knicks coach Derek Fisher has filed for divorce from his wife, Candace.
Fisher filed the paperwork Wednesday in Los Angeles, a spokesman said.
The Fishers were married Feb. 19, 2005, and have four children: twins Tatum and Drew, and Marshall and Chloe. Tatum has recovered from retinoblastoma, a rare form of eye cancer for which she was treated in 2007.
Fisher is in his first season as coach of the Knicks. He spent most of his playing career with the Lakers, helping them win five championships.
