MIAMI -- It was just a game, not a playoff series. Still, Brandon Jennings finally got a long-awaited win over the Miami Heat.

And he made the two biggest plays to get it done.

Jennings made a deep, well-covered 3-pointer to snuff out one Miami rally with 4:09 left, then stole the ball from LeBron James to set up another score two minutes later, and the Detroit Pistons beat the Heat 107-97 on Tuesday night to snap the NBA champions' 10-game winning streak (see full recap).

Warriors rally from 27 down to top Raptors
OAKLAND, Calif. -- Thirty minutes after fueling Golden State's largest fourth-quarter comeback in more than 50 years, Klay Thompson pointed to a halftime speech by teammate Jermaine O'Neal as the difference.

It turns out the Warriors' backup big man knew just what buttons to push.

Thompson made four 3-pointers during the dramatic fourth, Stephen Curry added a pair of shots from beyond the arc down the stretch and the Golden State Warriors rallied from 27 points down in the second half to beat the Toronto Raptors 112-103 Tuesday night (see full recap).

Thunder beat Kings for eighth straight win
SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- The Oklahoma Thunder took the fourth quarter off and almost paid for it against the Sacramento Kings.

Kevin Durant had 27 points and 11 rebounds and the Thunder withstood a furious fourth-quarter rally to earn their eighth straight win, a 97-95 victory over slumping Sacramento on Tuesday night.

The Thunder were outscored 30-19 in the fourth quarter, but hung on to improve to 4-3 on the road this season (see full recap).
