Miami Heat beaten in Boston

8:23 am on 28 October 2010

The American basketball star LeBron James says it will take a little time to get accustomed to all of the talent on the Miami Heat after his side was beaten 88-80 by the Boston Celtics in their highly anticipated NBA season-opener.

James, who played seven seasons with the Cleveland Cavaliers, and fellow free agent Chris Bosh signed with Miami in the off-season, joining perennial All-Star Dwyane Wade in South Florida to create a potential juggernaut.

James says it will take time for them to work effectively together..

Meanwhile the lead changed 4 times in the last minute as the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers came from 15 points down to be the Houston Rockets 112-110.
