The Miami Heat simply weren't in a giving mood as they spoiled the Christmas Day return of LeBron James to southern Florida. James tallied a team high 30 points and eight assists as the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday lost 101-91 to his former team in one of five NBA contests on the Christmas holiday. It was James's first game in South Beach since spurning the Heat to rejoin his hometown Cavaliers in the offseason. They were a determined bunch, especially James' former sidekick Dwyane Wade, who finished with a game-high 31 points.
Chris Rogers and Shane Watson steadied the Australian innings after the early dismissal of David Warner on the opening day of the third Test against India on Friday. Rogers, who scored 55 in both innings of the second Gabba Test, was heading towards a third straight half-century in the Boxing Day Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. At lunch Australia were 92 for one after winning the toss with Rogers unbeaten on 46 with Watson on his highest score of the series, not out 41. The pair had put on an unbroken 92 runs for the second wicket after Warner was out in the second over of the innings.
