Recap


Heat 110, Thunder 100: LeBron James had a season high-tying 39 points to go with 12 rebounds and seven assists and visiting Miami dominated the entire way to run its winning streak to a season-high seven games.

James scored 23 points in the first half to help the Heat build a commanding lead, but he made one mistake - misfiring on a long 3-pointer with 62 seconds to play that ended his historic streak of scoring 30 points and shooting 60 percent at six games.

Chris Bosh had 20 points and 12 rebounds for Miami, which beat the Thunder for the sixth consecutive time dating to last season's NBA Finals by racing to 32-17 first-quarter lead and never letting Oklahoma City get within single digits until the final minute.

Kevin Durant overcame a miserable start to score 40 points - 22 in the fourth quarter - and Russell Westbrook added 26 and 10 assists for Oklahoma City, which suffered its second straight defeat and only its fourth loss in 27 home games.

Miami used an 11-0 spurt in the first quarter to build the lead to double digits while three-time scoring champion Durant missed his first eight shots. The Heat led 63-46 at the half and 88-69 through three quarters before Durant converted a pair of three-point plays within 29 seconds in the fourth to ignite a belated rally.

GAME NOTEBOOK: James shot 14 of 24 (58.3 percent) as he joined Wilt Chamberlain and Elgin Baylor as the third player to score 30 points in seven straight games entering the All-Star break. ... Durant made all 15 free-throw attempts and the Thunder were 33-of-34 from the line in falling to 11-2 following a loss this season - with both defeats coming at the hands of the Heat. ... James and Durant were both whistled for technical fouls in the first half while Miami G Dwyane Wade fouled out for the first time since March 2012.
