James stays hot, helps Heat down Thunder
Oklahoma City, OK (Sports Network) - The only thing that can slow LeBron James and the Miami Heat down at this point is the All-Star break.
James fell short of continuing his unprecedented shooting stretch, but was dominant nonetheless in totaling 39 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists as the Heat dismantled the Oklahoma City Thunder in their own building, 110-100, en route to their seventh straight win.
In Miami's previous six victories, James accomplished what no player had ever done in NBA history, scoring at least 30 points each game while making 60- percent from the field or better. The three-time league MVP was on pace to keep the streak going, but missed a late 3-pointer to finish 14-of-24 (58 percent) from the field.
Chris Bosh chipped in 20 points and 12 rebounds, while fellow All-Star Dwyane Wade had 13 points and eight assists for the Heat, who virtually led by double digits the last three quarters to sweep the season series from last season's NBA Finals opponent.
Oklahoma City dropped back-to-back games for the second time this season and had its Chesapeake Energy Arena winning streak snapped at seven games.
Kevin Durant logged 40 points on 12-of-24 shooting, while Russell Westbrook donated 26 points, 10 assists and five boards in the loss.
