PHILADELPHIA — LeBron James had 21 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds to help the Miami Heat snap a three-game losing streak and beat the Philadelphia 76ers 101-86 on Friday night.

Chris Bosh scored 25 points, Norris Cole and Shane Battier had 13 points, and the Heat avoided their first four-game skid since March 2011. The Heat dropped games at New York, Brooklyn and Washington. They never had any trouble this time against the Sixers.

The two-time defending NBA champion Heat led by 25 and atoned for a 114-110 loss to Philadelphia in October.

Tony Wroten led the Sixers with 13 points. Spencer Hawes had 10 points and 10 rebounds. The Sixers missed 18 of 20 3-pointers
