LeBron James Wins First NBA Title as Miami Ousts Oklahoma City

June 21 (Bloomberg) -- LeBron James won his first National Basketball Association championship, scoring 26 points as the Miami Heat won the title with a 121-106 victory tonight against the visiting Oklahoma City Thunder.

Mike Miller added 23 points, including seven 3-pointers, as Miami won the best-of-seven NBA Finals four games to one. The Heat tied an NBA Finals record with 14 3-pointers.

James, 27, a three-time league Most Valuable Player, was playing in his third NBA Finals. The Heat lost in the Finals last year to the Dallas Mavericks.

The Heat built a 10-point halftime margin into a 95-71 lead entering the fourth period. Miller came off the bench to hit all four of his 3-point attempts in the opening two periods and Miami used a 19-4 run to take a 59-49 halftime lead at AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami.

Kevin Durant led the Thunder with 32 points and Russell Westbrook added 19.
