There was a time when LeBron James getting pestered by Lance Stephenson would have worked out wonderfully for the Miami Heat.James reached 50 for the 13th time in his career, including Game 1 of last season's NBA Finals.James shot 19 for 31 from the field, 6 for 8 from 3-point range, became the seventh player to score at least 51 in a game against Miami, and started his two-game reunion tour in sensational fashion. The Lakers' next game is Wednesday night in Cleveland, the only other place besides Miami and L.A. that James has called home as a professional.Wayne Ellington scored 19 points for Miami (6-10), which is off to its second-worst start in the last 12 years. The Heat were 5-11 at this point of the 2016-17 season, the only other time they've been worse after 16 games in that span.Miami had a five-shot possession in the third quarter, four offensive rebounds coming before Ellington made a 3-pointer.
