Marcus Thornton and the Sacramento Kings tried to keep up with LeBron James and the Miami Heat, but just couldn't hang with the defending champs after two overtimes, falling 141-129.
Thornton did his best, scoring a season-high 36 points on 11-of-18 shooting, including eight 3-pointers. He added two rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block. But the Heat couldn't be matched.
James went for 40 points, eight rebounds, 16 assists, two steals and a block.. Dwyane Wade added 39 points, eight rebounds, seven assists, three steals and two blocks.
Thornton has been erratic this season with his minutes declining from month-to-month. He's capable of being a featured scorer -- as he's shown in the 2011-12 and 2010-11 seasons. He's owned in 78 percent of Yahoo fantasy leagues, so he's likely taken in yours. If he's a free agent, snag him.

LeBron James continues to troll, troll, troll his boat prior to NBA games in the form of some nasty dunks. We wrote about LeBron trolling regarding the dunk contest last week, and he continued to do the same prior to the Heat’s last game. Check out Bron’s basic alley-oop to himself between his legs dunk. No big deal, wouldn’t even register at the dunk contest.
LeBron James is on a monster of a tear, which continued Tuesday with King James scoring a season-high 40 points in a 141-129 double-overtime win over the Sacramento Kings. Forty is a ridiculous number but seems almost pedestrian for superhuman LeBron.
James made 14-of-23 field goals and 11-of-12 free throws in the shootout. He nearly put together another triple-double with 16...
Tweet Earlier this week we gave you video of LeBron James performing a sick dunk in warm-ups that would have registered pretty high scores in a dunk contest. Tuesday before the Heat played the Kings LeBron pulled another amazing dunk out of his bag of tricks, this time going between his legs mid-air with relative ease: [...]
The Big Leagues One fan responds to the King.
Say it isn’t so!?! Unless you have been living in a cave you may have seen video – or live, if you’re extremely lucky – of LeBron James insane pregame dunks. You know the self alley-oop, between-the-legs dunk that have fans wanting more. However, some have criticized him about his resistance with the Slam Dunk contest, [...]The post LeBron James May Quit Pregame Dunk Routines...
Oh, nothing to see here folks. Just LeBron James putting on a little dunk contest prior to the Heat’s game against the Cavs on Sunday. ‘Bron has continually trolled the world about his possible inclusion in the NBA’s dunk contest, and he didn’t participate again this year. After seeing this video of him dunking you can bet this will spark another round of “if only LeBron...
Fans can sure be stupid sometimes.
Here you have one of the best basketball players to ever play the game, and he likes to put on a little show during warm-ups for the fans by performing some crazy dunks. What do we do? We complain and harass the man about not performing in the Dunk Contest.
This should be the point where I say I get it; that I'm with you fans, but...
I don't like the Miami Heat. I am not a fan of Lebron James, Dwayne 'WoW' Wade, or anyone else in South Beach. I do, however, love their edition of the Harlem Shake.
This is easily the best one yet (being an extended cut helps).
Anyone and everyone who likes NBA basketball has been begging All-Stars like Lebron James to take part in the Dunk Conte…

AWFULLY NICE OF HIM
Despite his saying that he was considering ending his pregame dunk displays, LeBron James apparently had a change of heart and said he will continue to do them.
Ever since Lebron James left the Cleveland Cavaliers to go to Miami, the Cavs have been rebuilding and now almost three years later, they have assembled an excellent group of players. Kyrie Irving is a budding superstar and a franchise player, Dion Waiters is a fantastic secondary scoring option, Tristan Thompson is becoming one of the best rebounders in the NBA and has developed...

When it rains, it pours for Manti Te’o. Seriously, is there anyone in the world who is having a worse couple of months than this guy? He has gone from the Heisman runner up, to the butt of every sports related joke, and now sliding down draft boards all over the NFL.
Te’o is not know for being extremely impressive athletically, but he definitely...
Look I am not going to lie, I do not understand this fascination with the "Harlem Shake" dance craze. However, it seems to be taking the Internet by storm and everyone is getting in on the act including the Miami Heat.
As in other "Harlem Shake" videos, Chris "Birdman" Andersen comes into the Heat locker room, flapping his arms like a bird when suddenly...
The young Cavaliers are suddenly developing into consistent winners. After a rough start this season, made rougher by a brutal schedule, the Cavs are showing signs of growth.
With one of the NBA's youngest rosters, they went 7-5 in February, their first month with a winning record since 2010, when LeBron James was still wearing wine and gold. All-Star guard Kyrie Irving missed...
