(OKLAHOMA CITY) — Even a Thunder storm couldn’t cool off the Heat.
LeBron James had 39 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists leading the Miami Heat to its seventh straight win, as Miami conquered the Oklahoma City Thunder, 110-100 Thursday.
In James’ previous six games he had scored at least 30 points while shooting over 60 percent, an NBA record. He almost extended the streak to seven games, but with 1:02 left in the game he missed a three with the shot clock running down, putting his shooting percentage just under 60 percent.
“All I care about is the win,” James said when asked about the streak being broken. “Individual accolades take care of itself. Winning is hard to come by in professional sports and that’s what it’s all about for me.”
Miami (36-14) never trailed in the game.
The Thunder (39-14) received 40 points from Kevin Durant in the loss.
