MIAMI - Halfway to a title, and LeBron James shows no sign of letting this one get away.
James had 29 points and 14 rebounds, and the Miami Heat took a two-games-to-one lead in the NBA Finals with a 91-85 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday night.
Dwyane Wade had 25 points, seven rebounds and seven assists for the Heat, who were in this same position through three games last year, then didn't win again against the Dallas Mavericks.
James' poor performance was part of the problem then, but he seems on top of his game this time. His three-pointer sent the Heat to the fourth quarter with the lead, and he scored five straight Miami points when the Heat were building just enough cushion to hold off another late flurry by the Thunder.
