MIAMI, Jan. 7 (UPI) -- LeBron James poured in 32 points for Miami Tuesday and the Heat overcame a slow start to surge past New Orleans 107-88.

Chris Andersen came off the bench to hit all seven of his shots en route to 15 points as the Heat won despite the injury absences of starters Mario Chalmers (Achilles) and Shane Battier (strained quadricep).

New Orleans was paced by Anthony Davis with 22 points and 12 rebounds.
