LeBron James scored 21 points, including the clinching jumper with 13.6 seconds remaining, and Miami knocked off the Atlanta Hawks 95-89 on Friday night for the Heat's fourth straight win.
Jeff Teague hit consecutive 3-pointers as the Hawks rallied from a nine-point deficit in the fourth quarter. But Josh Smith, on an awful night, missed two free throws with just over a minute remaining, and James finished off Atlanta after the teams traded turnovers.
James muscled away from DeShawn Stevenson, swished a 15-foot jumper and hopped along the sideline in front of the Atlanta crowd. The Heat won without Dwyane Wade, who didn't play because of a cold.
Chris Bosh led Miami with 24 points. James added 11 rebounds and nine assists.
Teague paced the Hawks with 20 points.

LeBron James hit Twitter on Thursday night to debut his new Lebron X denim sneakers. They feature a brown leather tongue with brown leather laces that seem better fit for winter boots than for the basketball court. They also feature pink soles and lace-holes. While LeBron haters might say that these would be better suited a teenage girl looking for something to match her purse with -- they probably will be a hit with sneakerheads, who had no problem shelling out major dollars for LeBrons that featured pink trim in the past. Both the LeBron 8s and LeBron 9s were widely popular in the "South Beach" colorway which featured teal and pink.
If paired with khakis, these might look too bad, however LeBron posted a second pic of him wearing the sneakers with lighter, possibly stone-washed colored jeans. Definitely not a good combination. Unless of course, you’re a fan of the Canadian Tuxedo.
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...
I going to take a guess that most of you have never seen a pair of denim sneakers before and to be honest, I've never seen a pair either.Yesterday, Miami Heat star LeBron James tweeted some photos of his new LeBron James denim 10's and here they are:
MIAMI LeBron James had plenty of critics to drive him last season on the way to his first championship. With many of the skeptics having gone on vacation, the general belief is James will have to rely mostly on self motivation to win another.
Then again, maybe not. The Miami small forwards dander has been raised.
With there still being some concern over how the Heats small ball...
ATLANTA - LeBron James and Josh Smith banged knees in the first half, causing James to come up limping. But that did not prevent James from nearly recording a triple-double and hitting a big shot. James collected 21 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists, and he made the shot that counted most, a 20-foot jumper with 13 seconds left, to lead the Miami Heat to a 95-89 win over the...
NBA's BACK. So many games, so many story lines, SO MANY overreactions. Wanna-be GMs and fake-psychologists abound, scoffing at the decisions of front office gurus paid millions to do their jobs and ignoring scads of statistical trends because they play "NBA 2K13", so they MUST be right. Guess what? I wouldn't have it any other way. The discussions are what makes...
Two of the best players in the NBA had embarrassing bloopers last night.
Although the Miami Heat crushed the Brooklyn Nets and LeBron James had a monster game; I am sure his teammates got on him for his missed dunk attempt.
The Lakers are 1-4 but more embarrassing last night was Dwight Howard’s free throw. He air balled it. How do you shoot an air ball when you are a pro and have...
Those who know me well know that my two favorite pastimes are the NBA and the James Bond film series. The latter involves a license to kill, while the former involves many with a license to thrill. This autumn marks the 50th
anniversary of 007′s debut on the silver screen, and this weekend, the release of the latest Bond film, Skyfall. With that in mind, I present, on a film-by...
The Los Angeles Lakers made a bold move on Friday morning when they decided to fire their head coach in Mike Brown after a rough, 1-4 start to begin the season.
The Lakers are already exploring their options for a new head coach while Brown chows down on Chick-fil-A, as they could bring back someone like Phil Jackson maybe.
Miami Heat star LeBron James has been with Brown...
MIAMI -- The Brooklyn Nets have the second-biggest payroll in the NBA, but the team that was on the money Wednesday night was the Miami Heat. Miami, playing its most complete game of the season, defeated the Nets, 103-73, to raise its record to 4-1. It's also the first time in franchise history that the Heat has started a season 4-0 at home. The Heat have now beaten the Nets...
The Brooklyn Nets knew it was going to be a long night when their first possession led to a steal by Chris Bosh, and ended with an alley-oop to LeBron James. You can’t allow Miami to sprint in the open floor; it’s a recipe for disaster.
What was only a nine-point deficit going into halftime for the Nets, exploded like a Steven Seagal homemade bomb in a dismal second half.
While the Miami Heat are known for their offensive prowess, they're proving mighty stingy on the defensive end, too.
The Atlanta Hawks know all too well how hard it can be to generate offense against the defending NBA champions.
Seeking a fourth consecutive win overall, the Heat try for a sixth straight road victory over the Hawks on Friday night.
The Heat (4-1) are coming...
