James scored 51 points and grabbed eight rebounds to lead his team to a 113-97 win over Miami. James also connected on six of his eight three-point attempts in the victory.

Los Angeles carried a double-digit lead into half-time and extended their advantage to 16 by the end of the third quarter. From there, they cruised to the win.
