Chris Bosh scored a game-high 31 points on 15- of-22 shooting in leading the Miami Heat to a surprisingly tight 109-102 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday. Although the Heat never trailed, the outcome was still up in the air until the final minute when Bosh's 18-footer secured Miami's sweep of the season series in back-to-back seasons for the first time in franchise history. LeBron James finished with 27 points, 13 rebounds and six assists for the Heat, who have won four of their last five following a rare three-game slide. Pau Gasol and Jodie Meeks both netted 22 points for the Lakers, while Nick Young contributed 19 points on 20 shots in the loss, which dropped Los Angeles to 2-3 on their seven-game Grammy road trip.
