Newark, NJ (Sports Network) - LeBron James stepped up in the absence of Dwyane
Wade, scoring the Heat's final 17 points en route to a game-high 37 as Miami
came back to edge the New Jersey Nets, 101-98, on Monday.
After trailing for the vast majority of the game, the Heat took their first
lead at 97-96 with 51 seconds to play on the back end of a personal 7-0 run by
James, who finished with seven assists and six rebounds.
Chris Bosh contributed 22 points and 15 rebounds in the victory, Miami's third
Kris Humphries led the Nets with 29 points and MarShon Brooks tied a career-
high with 24 in New Jersey's second consecutive losing effort.
Both teams were without key playmakers. Wade sat out as part of a maintenance
program for the right ankle injury that has caused him to miss 12 games this
season, while Deron Williams was sidelined with a right calf injury sustained
Saturday against the Celtics.
