OAKLAND, Calif. -- What transpired here Wednesday night perhaps may have occurred four days too soon.
With this being the final game before the NBA All-Star Break, the Miami Heat and Golden State Warriors put on a show just as worthy. The Heat in the second half blew a 21-point lead, regained it before LeBron James hit a 3-pointer with one-tenth of a second remaining to complete a 111-110 victory at Oracle Arena.
James finished with 36 points, 13 rebounds and nine assists. It was the eighth time this season he has come within two rebounds or assists of a triple-double. Center Chris Bosh scored 19 points and had five rebounds.
The Heat won despite not having Dwyane Wade for a second straight game. He was a late scratch because of a sore left foot.
The Warriors grabbed a two-point lead when guard Stephen Curry scored on a 3-point play with 14.6 left. That set the stage for James, who hit a fadeaway shot over the outstretched arms of Warriors forward Andre Iguodala.
Curry led the Warriors with 29 points.
