Miami, FL (Sports Network) - In their first matchup since June, the Heat once again proved to be too much for the Thunder to handle.

Behind 29 points, nine assists and eight rebounds from LeBron James, the Miami Heat outlasted the Oklahoma City Thunder, 103-97, in a rematch of last season's NBA Finals.

Dwyane Wade chipped in 21 points and Mario Chalmers poured in 20 for the Heat, who captured their fifth straight win.

After having their 12-game win streak snapped by the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday, the Thunder have now dropped two in a row.

Kevin Durant paced Oklahoma City with 33 points and seven rebounds while Russell Westbrook posted 21 points and 11 boards for the Thunder, who dropped their fifth straight contest to the Heat dating back to the 2012 NBA Finals.

The Heat defeated the Thunder in five games during last season's championship round.
