CLEVELAND ? LeBron James scored 17 of his 36 points on free throws as the Cleveland Cavaliers buried the Miami Heat 102-86, extending their win streak to 10 games.
Daniel Gibson netted 12 points for Cleveland after returning from the hospital as the anticipated marquee showdown between James and Heat star Dwyane Wade never materialized.
James also had eight assists and seven rebounds and Shaquille O'Neal finished with 13 points and eight rebounds for Cleveland, who made 15 more free throws (29) than Miami attempted (14).
O'Neal's former teammate Wade had 24 points on 11-of-26 shooting and Michael Beasley scored 21 for the Heat.
Gibson didn't make it into the game until the second half because he was at the hospital checking on his pregnant fiancée, singer Keyshia Cole.
