Basketball: LeBron James' record streak ends as Heat overcome Thunder

OKLAHOMA CITY (REUTERS) - LeBron James continued his sizzling form with 39 points in the Miami Heat's 110-100 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday but missed a late three-pointer to bring his record scoring streak to an end.

James became the first National Basketball Association player to score 30 points while shooting 60 per cent in six straight games on Tuesday but was unable to extend the record to seven against the Thunder, his percentage dipping to 58 on 14-for-24 shots.

With the NBA approaching the mid-season All Star break, James passed the 30-point mark for the seventh game in a row and also had 12 rebounds and seven assists in the Valentine's Day showdown between last year's NBA finalists.
