LeBron James led the way with 27 points and 11 rebounds as the host Miami Heat pulled to within a game and a half of Chicago for the top spot in the Eastern Conference with an 83-72 victory over the Bulls.
Dwyane Wade returned to the lineup and put up 18 points and five assists while Mario Chalmers scored 16 points for the Heat, who were without Chris Bosh.
Derrick Rose did not suit up for the Bulls, though Luol Deng returned following a two-game absence.
Both teams plan on meeting in the Eastern Conference finals and Chicago still holds the inside track on home-court advantage for that potential series. Even with that at stake Thursday, the playoff atmosphere that surrounded the three previous meetings was muted due to the absence of Rose and Bosh.
James put Miami out front with 18 points in the first half and added seven points in the third to ensure that Chicago would not take the lead.
Wade scored six straight points and Shane Battier hit a 3-pointer to cap a 9-2 burst earl...

MIAMI-- Erik Spoesltra obviously has nothing against Miami fans. Not even the guy who shows up every game dressed as a banana.
The Heat coach loves the homecourt advantage his team has at AmericanAirlines Arena, where it is 26-4 this season. But Spoelstra would rather not be in Miami on Thursday night.

The NBA MVP debate has heated up, then cooled down. Then it heated up again, and then it cooled down, again. It seems that the MVP has come down to two players: Miami Heat forward LeBron James and Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant.

Jumping right into the news today.
Lebron James says winning a third MVP would "mean a lot." It would also mean nothing. As a matter of fact, it would almost be detrimental to his legacy at this point if he won but didn't get a title. It would be more detrimental to the shine of his present-day legacy to get that third MVP. He needs a title...
