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.
