NBA Roundup: James Scores 32 More, Heat Top Lakers
FROM AP REPORTS
Sports Writer

MIAMI -- LeBron James ran a few steps behind the play, knowing exactly what was coming. The lob from Norris Cole arrived, and the NBA's reigning MVP rose for a catch and dunk.

He made it look easy.

He's making everything look easy right now.

James scored 32 points on 12-for-18 shooting in a record-setting show, Dwyane Wade scored 30 and the Miami Heat beat the Los Angeles Lakers 107-97 on Sunday for their fifth straight win.

It was James' fifth straight game with at least 30 points, a franchise record. He also joined Adrian Dantley (1979) and Moses Malone (1982) as the only NBA players to score at least 30 and shoot at least 60 percent in five straight outings, the team said.

"Don't take it for granted," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "He's making greatness look easy."

Mario Chalmers scored 13 and Chris Bosh finished with 12 points and 11 rebounds for the Heat.




Kobe Bryant had 28 points and nine assists for the Lakers, who also got 18 points from Earl Clark. The Lakers had eight turnovers in the fourth quarter, while Miami had none.

CLIPPERS 102, KNICKS 88: In New York, Chris Paul scored 25 points in his second game back from injury and reserve Jamal Crawford had 27 to lead Los Angeles.

Carmelo Anthony had 42 points -- his fifth 40-point game this season -- for the Knicks, but made only one basket in the fourth quarter as 40-year-old Grant Hill came off the bench to defend him.

Blake Griffin finished with 17 points and 12 rebounds for the Clippers, who bounced back from a 22-point loss in Miami on Friday to win for just the fourth time in 12 games. They finish off their eight-game road trip Monday in Philadelphia.

Raymond Felton scored 20 points for the Knicks, who lost for the second time in eight games.
