Jazz edge out Heat

MIAMI, November 10- Paul Millsap scored a career-high 46 points, including a rebound basket to force over-time, and the Utah Jazz edged Miami 116-114 on Tuesday despite stellar showings from Dwyane Wade and LeBron James.

The Jazz rallied from a 22-point deficit and pulled level at 104-104 on Millsap’s basket at the final buzzer of the fourth quarter. Utah claimed the victory on two free throws by Francisco Elson with 0.4 of a second remaining.

Wade scored 39 points and James produced his 29th career triple double – double-digit totals in three categories – with 20 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds, but the Heat still suffered their first home loss of the season.

James produced the first triple-double for the Heat since Shaquille O’Neal in 2006.

The Heat missed five shots in the last two minutes of over-time to equalize or seize the lead, the last by Eddie House at the concluding buzzer.

Utah’s Deron Williams scored 21 points and added 14 assists while Andrei Kirilenko contributed 16 points for the Jazz, who had lost their six prior games at Miami. Chris Bosh added 17 points for the Heat.

Kirilenko’s 3-pointer with 1:50 remaining in over-time gave the Jazz a 112-111 edge but the Heat pulled level at 114-114 on a Wade 3-pointer with 17 seconds remaining.

Elson was fouled by Wade near the basket on the final Jazz possession and Elson made the winning free throws inside the final half-second.
