Recap


Heat 101, Hawks 92: LeBron James had 27 points and Dwyane Wade scored 10 of his 26 points in the third quarter as host Miami continued its mastery of its Southeast Division rival.

Chris Bosh added a double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Heat, who shot 58.2 percent from the field to win their fifth straight and 11th in 13 outings versus Atlanta.

Josh Smith had a team-high 22 points and Al Horford recorded his sixth straight double-double (20 points, 11 rebounds) for the Hawks, who fell for just the second time in 11 contests.

After Jeff Teague's 3-pointer gave Atlanta a 65-63 lead in the third quarter, Wade scored eight points during a 14-2 run for Miami. He capped the uprising with a pair of free throws before Joel Anthony stole the ball and Wade ended the possession with a layup.

The Hawks trimmed the deficit to six at 80-74, but James scored Miami's first six points of the fourth quarter as the Heat extended their lead to 12 and never looked back.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Miami veteran G Ray Allen, who finished with three points, needs just three more to pass Adrian Dantley (23,177) for 22nd place on the NBA's all-time scoring list. ... Atlanta swingman Kyle Korver missed his fifth consecutive game with back spasms. He did practice, however, and the team is hopeful he'll play in Wednesday's contest versus Orlando. ... Miami F Udonis Haslem did not play because of the flu.
