OKLAHOMA CITY, Feb. 20 (UPI) -- LeBron James
put in 33 points on 15-of-22 shooting before leaving with a bloody nose Thursday in the Miami Heat's 103-81 drubbing of Oklahoma City.
James' slam dunk over Serge Ibaka midway through the fourth quarter ended with a painful injury to the Heat superstar, who was helped off the court and into the locker room after laying on the court for several minutes.
Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade each pumped in 24 points for Miami, winners of four straight.
The Thunder got 28 points from Kevin Durant.
Russell Westbrook -- returning to the lineup after missing 27 games with a knee injury -- contributed 16 for Oklahoma City.
