ATLANTA -

LeBron James scored 21 points, including the clinching jumper with 13.6 seconds remaining, and Miami knocked off the Atlanta Hawks 95-89 on Friday night for the Heat's fourth straight win.

Jeff Teague hit consecutive 3-pointers as the Hawks rallied from a nine-point deficit in the fourth quarter. But Josh Smith, on an awful night, missed two free throws with just over a minute remaining, and James finished off Atlanta after the teams traded turnovers.

James muscled away from DeShawn Stevenson, swished a 15-foot jumper and hopped along the sideline in front of the Atlanta crowd. The Heat won without Dwyane Wade, who didn't play because of a cold.

Chris Bosh led Miami with 24 points. James added 11 rebounds and nine assists.

Teague paced the Hawks with 20 points.
