LeBron James scored 27 points in his return from a strained right hamstring, five other Miami players reached double figures and the Heat moved closer to securing home-court advantage for the entire NBA playoffs by topping the Philadelphia 76ers 106-87 on Saturday night.
Rashard Lewis scored 14 and Norris Cole added 13 for the Heat, whose magic number for clinching the league's best regular-season record was trimmed to two.
Miami moved to 60-16, one win shy of matching the franchise single-season record. The Heat got there after outscoring Philadelphia 29-11 in the fourth quarter.
Jrue Holiday scored 18 points for Philadelphia, which got 14 from Evan Turner and an 11-point, 11-rebound night from Spencer Hawes.
James had missed Miami's last three games, was cleared to return after some pregame testing on Saturday and shot 12 for 17 from the field. The Heat were without Dwyane Wade (sore ankle and knee) and Chris Bosh (sore right knee).
