CHARLOTTE, N.C. — LeBron James had 34 points and eight rebounds, and the Miami Heat beat the Charlotte Bobcats for the 15th straight time, 104-96 in overtime Saturday night.
James scored six points in the extra period, including two driving layups to lift the Heat to their second win in two nights.
Chris Bosh added 25 points and seven rebounds for Miami.
Al Jefferson had 22 points to lead the Bobcats, who were playing their fourth game in five nights.
The Bobcats lost point guard Kemba Walker in the third quarter with an ankle injury.
The crowd of 19,631 was the largest ever to see a Bobcats game at Time Warner Cable Arena on a night in which the team began selling its Hornets gear for the first time. The Bobcats will become the Hornets after this season.
