LeBron’s triple-double lifts Heat over 76ers

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Before he took a seat on the bench, LeBron James made sure to grab one more rebound.

James had 16 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds for his 35th career triple-double and the Miami Heat cruised to their 10th straight win, 114-90 over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night.

The three-time NBA MVP knew he was one board away from a special night so he went after it hard early in the fourth quarter.

After Chris Andersen blocked Evan Turner’s shot, James hauled it in, drove up court and banked a shot in for good measure.

”I was going to stay out there until I got it,” James said.

”I wasn’t going to let this one slip away. I’ve had too many games where I was one assist, one rebound away. I wasn’t coming out.”

Dwyane Wade had 33 points, Mario Chalmers scored 14 and Chris Bosh added 13 to help the defending NBA champions improve to 39-14.

The Heat have a comfortable 5 1/2-game lead over Indiana in the Eastern Conference.

They’ve won four in a row on the road, including impressive wins over Oklahoma City before the All-Star break and Chicago on Thursday.

”It was a professional win,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said.
