Taking the court a bit under the weather, LeBron James continued his great play this season as he led a DWade-less Miami Heat team to victory over Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers.

James led all scorers in the game, putting in 31 points and grabbing 8 rebounds, along with 8 assists. Chris Bosh was also key in the victory, scoring 15 points. Pau Gasol led the way for the Lakers, tallying 26 points in a losing effort for the Lake Show.
