MIAMI – Guard Dwyane Wade scored 16 of his 30 points in the final quarter as the Miami Heat defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 107-97 in a National Basketball Association matchup Sunday at American Airlines Arena.

Miami star forward LeBron James finished with 32 points and seven rebounds as he set a club record by scoring at least 30 points in five consecutive games.

“You could feel the buzz in the arena today,” said James. “We were just happy that we were able to play our game, weather some of their storms that they had and come out with a win.”

Chris Bosh posted a double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds for the Heat, who have won five straight.

Mario Chalmers had 13 points, four rebounds and three assists in the win.

Kobe Bryant paced the Lakers with 28 points and nine assists as Los Angeles lost for the second time in three games.

Earl Clark finished with 18 points and nine rebounds, and Dwight Howard had 15 points and nine rebounds for Los Angeles.

    wala olats Lakers, they are 4 games below .500. its gonna take a miracle for them to reach the post-season. right now that is bleak. So you will likely see Howard on a different team next year, perhaps to Miami LOL

    Go Miami Heat!

    The way things are going, there’s a big possibility that Lakers won’t make it to the playoff.

      I’m not really a Lakers fan but I feel for them. I acknowledge that Kobe Bryant is a stellar player. I hope they could break out of that spell and somehow turn things around. If not this season then hopefully immediately on the next season. The Lakers have always had that aura that they are the team to beat but not like this on this season. Oh well, a great game for Miami. Congratulations to them. I wish all the contenders well.
