OKC draw blood in loss to Heat

(The Sports Xchange) ———-Forward LeBron James scored 33 points to lead the Miami Heat to an emphatic 103-81 road victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday.

James passed the 30-point mark for the fourth consecutive game, despite leaving the court with 5:43 left with a bloody nose after being hit in the face by Oklahoma City forward Serge Ibaka.

Miami led 90-74 at the time, but the Thunder could not make a dent and never threatened the rest of the way as guard Dwayne Wade shouldered the load.

Wade ended the night with 24 points on 11-for-17 shooting to go along with 10 assists. Centre Chris Bosh added 24 points and eight rebounds for the visitors.

Kevin Durant paced the Thunder with 28 points, eight rebounds and five turnovers.

Miami improved to 39-14 while the Thunder fell to 43-13, but still own the best record in the league.
