LeBron James had 29 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists, and the Miami Heat tied a franchise record with their 14th straight victory, rallying to beat the New York Knicks 99-93 on Sunday.
Dwyane Wade added 20 points for the Heat, who had to overcome a 16-point deficit to beat the Knicks for the first time in three tries this season. Chris Bosh bounced back from a dismal first half to finish with 16 points.
The defending NBA champions won their sixth straight on the road by controlling the final minutes against a team that had a pair of 20-point victories over them this season and looked ready to run them out of the building again.
But James shook off a third-quarter leg injury and was back in top form by the finish, putting it away by coming up with a steal and throwing down a dunk with 23 seconds left.
Carmelo Anthony scored 32 points for the Knicks, who had their three-game winning streak snapped.
Jason Kidd emerged from a lengthy slump to finish with 14 points, eight rebou...

LeBron James is an incredbile athlete. He has arguably the best skill set of any basketball player, ever. He has Magic Johnson’s court vision, with Michael Jordan’s athleticism, and Karl Malone’s body. There is nothing he cannot do on a basketball court. Fans know this, and they have been clamoring to see him participate in the NBA Slam Dunk Contest for his entire carer. After...

Although considering partaking every year, Miami Heat superstar LeBron James is mulling Magic Johnson’s $1-million offer to compete in next winter’s NBA’s Slam Dunk Contest. “Tell him I’ll get back to him,” said James, 28, who Berkshire Hathaway Chairman Warren Buffett recently predicted would become the first athlete to top the billion-dollar mark since male ***** Tiger...

Friday I pleaded to stop the madness and obsession over the made up controversy swirling around LeBron James and his dunking. No less than 24 hours later, Magic Johnson put up $1 million dollars on national television to try to entice LeBron James to participate in next year's dunk contest.
I kid you not. One. Million. Dollars. Here's the video evidence from...
MVP candidate Tony Parker went down with an ankle injury last night, and if we have learned anything about Spurs' coach Greg Popovich, we probably won't see Parker again until the playoffs.The Spurs will be fine, as they have already stacked up a nice record for themselves (best in the NBA to be exact) and are generally excellent at plugging in pieces to combat the wear and...
If the LA Kings have the best Twitterfeed among sports franchises, the Minnesota Timberwolves may take first place on YouTube. This "Harlem Shake" video (which is actually the T'Wolves mascot beating a dancing buffoon in a LeBron James jersey) is perfect in every way. Especially the Nikola Pekovic cameo for absolutely no reason at the end.
Let's see SportsCenter...
Tweet On Friday Magic Johnson made a pretty bold statement when he offered to put up $1 million if LeBron James enters the NBA’s Slam Dunk Contest. It’s probably a safe bet that won’t happen so we will have to settle for the dunks worthy of a dunk contest that James has been doing [...]
