NBA results, April 6

LeBron James couldnt wake up Sunday. He was sluggish when his alarm went off at 8 a.m. and still in a funk when the Miami Heat and New York Knicks tipped off five hours later.
He eventually got into form, just in time to perhaps doom the Knicks playoff chances.
James scored 38 points and the host Heat survived an NBA-record 22 three-point attempts from New Yorks J.R. Smith in a 102-91 victory that kept Miami atop the Eastern Conference standings.
You do your job and you live with the results, James said. We lived with the result of J.R. making some of those bombs.
Chris Bosh added 14 points and Ray Allen had 12 for the Heat.
Smith was 11-for-28 from the floor, 10-for-22 from beyond the arc, and took 10 threes in the fourth quarter alone while Carmelo Anthony didnt attempt a single shot in the period.
The single-game mark was previously held by Damon Stoudemire, who hoisted 21 threes on April 15, 2005.
Its not really been a goal of mine, Smith said. I saw the open three and tried to take them. I had to take advantage.
Smith finished with 32 for the Knicks, who got 14 from Raymond Felton and 13 from Anthony on 4-for-17 shooting. Anthony has been bothered by a sore right shoulder, but played 44 minutes.
Melo is still hurting, Knicks coach Mike Woodson said. I couldnt rest him again tonight. That second half, he was giving us what hes got.
The Heat (53-23) increased their lead to a full game over Indiana atop the Eastern Conference. Miami is two ahead of Indiana in the loss column.
New York (33-45) has only four games left and is two losses behind Atlanta.
Our fate is almost now in Atlantas hands, Anthony said. Its tough. ... My fate is in somebody elses hands.Clippers 120, Lakers 97:
Blake Griffin and Chris Paul scored 23 points apiece, and the host Clippers hung another rout on the Lakers to take three of four games this season from their beleaguered Staples Center co-tenants. ... It wasnt quite the blowout margin of the Clippers previous two wins - 48 points on March 6 and 36 points on Jan. 10 - but they were easily in command as the designated home team. ... J.J. Redick added 15 points and DeAndre Jordan had 11 points and 12 rebounds for the Pacific Division-winning Clippers, who improved to 32-6 at home. ... The injury-plagued Lakers were down to just eight players after guard Kent Bazemore got hurt in the second quarter. Jordan Hill led them with 22 points and Nick Young added 18 points off the bench.
