Miami Heat extended their home winning streak to 15 games with a 106-85 win over the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday in a reprise of last season's NBA finals.
LeBron James and Chris Bosh each finished with 19 points and nine rebounds for the Heat, which has won both games against the Mavericks this year to get a small measure of revenge for losing the title series.
Dirk Nowitzki scored 25 for Dallas, but was held to 1-for-9 shooting in the second half. The Mavericks were outrebounded 44-29 and were held to only two fast-break points.
Miami outscored Dallas 26-13 in the fourth quarter to cap the win.
