LeBron James emerged victorious from a personal duel with Carmelo Anthony on Thursday night but the NBA's reigning MVP was unable to prevent the Miami Heat tasting defeat at the hands of the New York Knicks.

The Heat went down 102-92 at the Knicks - a ninth loss of the season for the consecutive NBA champions - but it was LeBron who was able to secure the individual bragging rights over his USA teammate.

LeBron was the top scorer in the match with 32 points, a total narrowly greater than the 29 scored by Anthony. The Knicks forward, though, still manages a better points-per-game average this season with 26.3 to LeBron's 25.7.

Following their head-to-head this week, the NBA's official YouTube channel posted a video of their best plays from the encounter. Watch it above…
