Heat win, Lakers lose

The Miami Heat defeated the OKC Thunder in Oklahoma last night, 110 – 100.  LeBron scored 39 points, pulled down 12 rebounds and had 7 assists.  Alas, he only shot 58% (not 60%) so the unbelievable streak has ended.  Kevin Durant threw in 40 points for OKC in a losing effort.  Now we head into All Star weekend…

But, first let’s look at the Lakers who suffered a bad loss to the other LA team, the Clippers last night at the Staples Center, 125 – 101.  This really stings as the Lakers head to the All Star break still four games out of the 8th playoff spot and Pau Gasol not set to return until early April.  I really think they are a better team with Gasol in the post, Howard at forward.  Antawn Jamison is really doing a terrific job for the Lakers, and Clark is filling in adequately for Gasol.  Not the same team we saw a couple of weeks ago with Gasol, however.  Kobe had 20 points, 5 rebounds and 11 assists.  Lakers better regroup and come out strong after the break, figure out something because the loss to the Clippers was a step backwards!

The NBA All Star game airs Sunday evening (February 17th) at 8:00 pm EST on TNT. (From Houston, Texas)
