LeBron Carries Heat Past Nets

NEW YORK (AP) — Pick any three Brooklyn Nets from Monday night’s game against Miami, and they didn’t combine to score as many points as LeBron James produced in helping the Heat take a 3-1 series lead in the NBA’s Eastern Conference semifinals.

James tied a playoff career high with 49 points, going 16-for-24 from the field in a 102-96 win over the Nets in Brooklyn. He had 15 of Miami’s 23 third-quarter points and added nine more in the final period. But the Heat couldn’t shake the Nets until Chris Bosh drained a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 57.3 seconds left. Ray Allen secured the victory by hitting four free throws in the final 11 seconds.

Dwyane Wade finished with 15 points and helped the Heat shoot 53 percent for the game, going 7-for-13. Chris Bosh had 12 points for the Heat, who can wrap up the series Wednesday in Miami.

Joe Johnson had a team-high 18 points but shot just 5-for-15 for Brooklyn.
