double and the Miami Heat continued their season-best winning streak by
humbling the Chicago Bulls, 86-67, at United Center.
James finished with 26 points and 12 rebounds, while Dwyane Wade added 17 and
eight for the Heat, who rolled to their ninth straight win with relative ease.
Miami shot 51 percent from the field against one of the league's best defenses
and forced 27 turnovers in holding the Bulls to their lowest point total this
Kirk Hinrich, Chicago's starting point guard with Derrick Rose still rehabbing
his surgically repaired knee, returned from a seven-game absence in Tuesday's
win over the Hornets, but his sore right elbow kept him out Thursday.
Nate Robinson got the starting nod and had a team-high 14 points, while Carlos
Boozer checked in with 12 points and 11 rebounds in the setback.
