HOUSTON -- Even with a collection of ballyhooed offensive stars, the Miami Heat earned the 2011-12 NBA title by mustering exceptional defensive intensity during the regular season and ratcheting it up in the playoffs. So far this season, however, the Heat's defense could hardly be considered passable. Miami is ranked second in offensive efficiency for a reason, and its quality on that end of the court Monday night overcame the team's defensive woes in a dramatic 113-110 victory over the Houston Rockets at Toyota Center. Once ahead by 17, the Heat (6-2) trailed by eight early in the fourth quarter before clawing back behind the brilliance of LeBron James. James scored eight consecutive points down the stretch for the Heat, including a driving baseline layup with 18.6 seconds left that put Miami ahead to stay. Rockets guard Jeremy Lin followed by air-balling a wide-open 3-point attempt. James finished with 38 points, 10 rebounds and six assists, and teammate Chris Bo...
BEST OF MAXIM
LeBron James, please participate in this year’s NBA slam dunk contest — sincerely, every NBA fan.
James threw down a monster alley-oop in Memphis off a dish from point guard Mario Chalmers. James may be competing with Gerald Green for best hops in the NBA.
James finished the game with a double-double, scoring twenty points with 10 rebounds and six assists. The Heat lost 104-86...
If this was late last year, I have a feeling that this shot would have gone in. However, the honeymoon is over for Jeremy Lin and he is forced to come back down to earth like the rest of us. With Houston down by three points in the fourth with just over 10 seconds left in the game Lin launched a WIDE OPEN and potential game-tying three pointer, but it failed to even hit the rim...
LeBron James' lowest scoring average is against the Los Angeles Clippers.
James struggled to score in last season's lone meeting against the Clippers heading into Wednesday night's matchup at Staples Center for the Miami Heat.
The three-time league MVP is averaging 23.1 points in 17 lifetime games versus Los Angeles (5-2). He missed 12 of 19 shots for 23 points in last...
No matter how you feel about LeBron, one thing can’t be denied, the man has crazy hops. Last night against the Memphis Grizzlies he started the fast break and received a pass from Mario Chalmers that saw LeBron go up, step on Tony Allen’s shoulders and even blow a kiss [...]
Tweet When the Houston Rockets signed Jeremy Lin away from the New York Knicks via an inflated three-year, $25 million offer sheet, many thought the signing was a mistake. But once the Rockets managed to trade for James Harden, the Lin signing took an immediate backseat. Lin had an opportunity to thrust himself back into [...]
The timetable for the Rockets is wider than it is for the Knicks, giving Jeremy Lin more room to develop his game.
The Houston Rockets faced off against the Miami Heat on Monday night. Jeremy Lin has taken a bit of a backseat with the arrival of James Harden in Houston but last night he had a shot at reclaiming his spot by hitting a last second three and sealing the win for the Rockets. It didn’t [...]
And by really we mean TheJlin7 hit nothing but floor with :08 seconds left and the Rockets lost to the Heat, 113-110.

LeBron James scored a season-high 38 points, Chris Bosh had 24
points and 10 rebounds, and the Miami Heat rallied to beat the
Houston Rockets 113-110 on Monday night.
Faried is fast becoming a well known commodity around the NBA.
The Miami Heat didn't have much trouble with James Harden in last season's NBA Finals.
This time, they should expect him to be much more involved in a different uniform.
Facing Harden for the first time since winning the NBA title, the Heat will try to minimize his impact again and make it six straight wins against the Houston Rockets on Monday night (8 p.m. ET, Sun Sports...
Come on, Channing Tatum wasn’t about to make it that easy for LeBron James.
After LeBron won his first NBA championship — ridding himself of a dump truck full of demons in the process — and then went on to lead Team USA to a gold medal in the London Olympics, everyone figured he was having the best year a person could possibly have.
Buuuuuut in the midst of all of that, Channing...
What better way to start this weekly column with a little
MVP talk 5 games into the season? With our traditional preseason picks of Kevin
Durant or Lebron James it comes time to look at some other names that need to
be considered if the award was to be handed out today. Below are three other candidates early
on this season.
When the Thunder traded James Harden shortly before the season, the small-market contender did more than clear salary cap space. In dealing the heady two-guard, the Thunder also signaled that they believed Kevin Durant was ready to expand his game and to fill some of the roles Harden formerly occupied.
Durant has come through so far this season, and then some. Not only has he assumed...
