HOUSTON (AP) – LeBron James put on a second-half show and helped the Miami Heat finally put away Houston.

James scored 32 of his season-high 38 points after halftime, Chris Bosh had 24 points and 10 rebounds, and Miami rallied to beat the Rockets 113-110 on Monday night.

Dwyane Wade added 19 points for the Heat, who shot 47.6 percent from 3-point range (10 of 21) and 51 percent from the field overall.

James went 12 for 20 from the field and 5 for 7 from 3-point range in the second half. He gave the Heat the lead for good with a driving layup with 19 seconds left.

“It’s the zone you hear about,” James said. “Certain players talk about getting into the zone. I wish I could get into it more. But when you’re in it, you know how it feels, you know everything you put up and how you’re going is pretty good.”

Chandler Parsons scored a career-high 25 points and Omer Asik had a career-best 19 points and 14 rebounds for the Rockets, who led 110-106 with 90 seconds left.

James was the difference, though, and Miami beat Houston for the sixth straight time.

“I expected him to make every single shot he threw up,” Bosh said. “I guess, after 30 points, you think everything is going in.”

Jeremy Lin shot an airball from 3-point range with 10 seconds left, Wade caught it and the Heat bounced back from a 104-86 loss to Memphis on Sunday.
