MIAMI (AP) - LeBron James scored 24 points and the Miami Heat had an edge in rebounding for a change Sunday to beat the woeful Washington Wizards 99-71.
The Heat, beaten on the boards by a total of 38 rebounds over the previous three games, this time enjoyed a 50-39 advantage. Udonis Haslem led them with 12 rebounds.
Miami scored the game's final 21 points and held Washington scoreless over the last 7:07.
James extended his streaks of scoring at least 20 points to 32 consecutive games this season, and 53 in a row including last year's playoff run.
The Wizards, last in the NBA in points and shooting, hit 36 percent. They lost their fifth game in a row and fell to 0-13 on the road against Eastern Conference teams.
