Miami is 3-1 on this trip, which includes a 94-89 loss in Utah and a 103-97 victory in Phoenix.

James, the MVP in four of the past five seasons, is averaging 26.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 6.6 assists and 1.46 steals per game. ... Dwyane Wade (18.7 ppg) and Chris Bosh (16.6 ppg, 6.8 rpg) give James ample support and all three played in Sunday’s All-Star Game.

The Mavs next hit the road to head East for the last time this season. The Mavs play at Philadelphia on Friday, at Detroit on Saturday, and at the New York Knicks on Monday. ... Tuesday’s game will be the 500th consecutive sellout for the Mavs, the longest active sellout streak among the top four major pro sports. ... The Mavs and Heat have combined to win the past three NBA titles. Dallas beat Miami in six games in the 2011 NBA Finals. Since the Heat acquired James and Bosh in 2010, they are 11-1 in playoff series. The lone loss was to the Mavs in the ’11 Finals. ....
