    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — LeBron James had received plenty of help from Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, and now he had to finish it on his own.

    With what Wade called the loudest crowd he'd ever heard booing, certain James had just fouled Kevin Durant, the league's MVP walked to the free throw line with 7.1 seconds left and the Miami Heat's huge lead down to two points.

    The guy who has endured too many fourth-quarter failures wasn't letting another NBA Finals game get away.

  • Vehicles collide at Trinity, Diamond; at least one driver injured -- photos

    Two vehicles collided at the corner of Diamond Drive and Trinity Drive, snarling traffic around 4:20 p.m. Thursday.

    A Chevy Impala, with California tags, apparently was heading northbound on Diamond when it collided with a subcompact SUV heading eastbound on Trinity. Police said the Honda SUV was southbound on Diamond and attempted to make a left onto Trinity when it was involved in the collision with the Impala.

    The Los Alamos Fire Department was quickly on the scene and put the woman driving the Impala on a stretcher and put her in an ambulance for the very short commute to the Los Alamos Medical Center. There was no immediate word on her condition.
