Deng scores 30, Heat roll over Mavs
DALLAS -- Luol Deng is still learning how he fits as Miami's new No. 3 with Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade.

The Dallas Mavericks might say he's coming along just fine.

Deng scored a season-high 30 points, Bosh and Wade added 20 apiece and the Heat stayed perfect against Dallas since the 2011 NBA Finals with a 105-96 victory on Sunday night.

The Heat have won seven straight regular-season games against Dallas since the Mavericks took three in a row in the finals to capture their first championship (see full recap).

Suns rally to deal Warriors 1st loss
PHOENIX -- The Phoenix Suns didn't do much different to defend the high-flying Golden State Warriors in the second half Sunday night.

Phoenix zoomed past the Warriors to a 107-95 victory on the strength of a 36-16 fourth quarter, leaving the NBA with no unbeaten teams.

Isaiah Thomas scored 15 of his 22 points in the fourth and fellow reserve Gerald Green added 16 of his 19 points in the final quarter, when the Suns surged ahead after trailing by eight through three (see full recap).

Wesley Matthews added 21 for the Blazers, who have won three of their last four.

Ty Lawson had 18 points for Denver after missing the team's 110-101 loss at home to Cleveland on
Friday night because of a sore left ankle. Kenneth Faried led the Nuggets with 19 points
