MIAMI (AP) - Danny Granger had 20 points and 11 rebounds, Brandon Rush added 20 points and the Indiana Pacers added to Miami’s week of woe, beating the Heat 93-77 on Monday night in the worst shooting game of Dwyane Wade’s career.

Wade finished with three points on 1-for-13 shooting. He had never shot so poorly when taking at least 13 tries, and the point total was the third-lowest of his career. He has been held scoreless twice.

T.J. Ford scored 13 points and Mike Dunleavy added 11 for the Pacers, who took control with a 29-11 run in the second quarter.

LeBron James scored 25 points and Chris Bosh had 21 points and 11 rebounds for Miami, which learned earlier Monday that top reserve Udonis Haslem will need surgery to repair a torn foot ligament and be out indefinitely.

Granger hit a pair of 3-pointers 36 seconds apart in the final 2 1/2 minutes to seal it, the last one giving Indiana a 91-75 lead and sending just about everyone who was left in the seats heading to the exits.

Celtics 99, Hawks 76

ATLANTA (AP) _ Nate Robinson had 16 points and 10 assists filling in for Rajon Rondo and Boston raced to a 26-point lead in the first quarter on the way to the rout.

Atlanta missed five of its first six shots, and Boston had a double-digit lead before the game was 4 minutes old. Shaquille O’Neal’s dunk made it 13-3, prompting the first of three timeouts coach Larry Drew called in the opening quarter in a desperate attempts to slow the Celtics.

Nothing worked. Boston made 18 of 25 shots, the Hawks just 4 of 17 and it was 39-13 at the end of the first.

Bouncing back from a tough loss at Toronto the day before, the Celtics looked like the fresher team even while playing the second of back-to-back games on the road. They snapped a two-game losing streak.

Mike Bibby led the Hawks with 11 points.

Rondo didn’t dress because of a strained left hamstring.
