James leads the way with 32 points.
The Miami Heat moved to 22-3 for the season at home with their 107-97 win over the Los Angeles Lakers at the AA Arena on Sunday.
Lebron James led the way with 32 points, setting a franchise record in the process with his fifth straight game with 30 points or more. James was ably assisted by Dwyane Wade, who finished with 30 points as the Heat secured their sixth win in the last seven meetings against the Lakers.
Chris Bosh returned for Erik Spoelstra, after missing the last two games with flu. The former Toronto Raptors star scored 12 points and added a game-high 11 rebounds as the ‘big-three’ were reunited to good effect.
The Lakers started the game well and went into the half level after leading in the first quarter.
However, a succession of turnovers and missed shooting saw them fall behind in the third, leading to a struggle thereafter.
Kobe Bryant led their scoring with 28 points on the night, but with James, Wade and Bosh shooting 30 of 49 from the field, it was too much for Mike D’Antoni’s men to keep up with.
The Heat now go on to face the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday, while the Lakers take on the Phoenix Suns on the same night.
