Knicks’ postseason slide hits 12

— MIAMI — Dwyane Wade scored 25 points, Chris Bosh added 21 and Miami beat New York 104-94 on Monday night, sending the Knicks to an NBA-record-tying 12th straight postseason loss.

Making matters worse for the Knicks: center Amare Stoudemire cut his left hand in a postgame incident. The Knicks did not immediately release any details on how it happened, and coach Mike Woodson — who saw the cut — declined to offer specifics.

LeBron James finished with 19 points, nine assists and seven rebounds for the Heat, who lead the series 2-0.

Carmelo Anthony scored 30 points on 12-for-26 shooting for New York.

Pacers 93, Magic 78

INDIANAPOLIS — David West had 18 points and 11 rebounds to help Indiana even the Eastern Conference first-round series at one game apiece.

Danny Granger and George Hill each added 18 points and Paul George had 17 points and eight rebounds for Indiana.

Glen Davis led the Magic with 18 points and 10 rebounds.

Rondo suspended

ATLANTA — Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo has been suspended for Game 2 of the opening-round playoff series against the Atlanta Hawks.

The NBA announced its decision Monday, less than 24 hours after Rondo stuck out his chest to bump referee Marc Davis while complaining about a call in the final minute of Boston’s 83-74 loss in Game 1.

Rondo won’t be able to play Tuesday night in Atlanta when the Celtics try to even the series.

The NBA’s assist leader scored 20 points and dished out 11 assists in the opener, leaving Boston with a huge hole in its lineup.

The Celtics already have been playing without shooting guard Ray Allen, who’s hobbling on a sore right ankle. Avery Bradley will likely move over to take Rondo’s place at the point.
