LeBron James was at his tremendous best yesterday as he led the Miami Heat to a 102-97 victory over a resilient the Toronto Raptors.

The reigning MVP netted 30 points to secure a second consecutive win for the Heat, whilst at the same time ensuring that the Raptors winning streak was limited to five games.

The Raptors made conspired to be tough opposition on the night, and were it not for the individual efforts of James, the scoreline could have been very different indeed.

Whilst remaining sturdy defensively via the likes of Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade, Miami proved ultimately too strong in their offence, with James throwing 30 on 12-of-8 shooting.

The Heat also spent the second half without Mario Chalmers after the point-guard fell victim to his ongoing Achilles tendon injury.

The reigning NBA champions take on New Orleans tomorrow, whilst the Raptors look to get back on track against the Indiana Pacers.
