AP LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Lakers missed having Kobe Bryant out on the court on Christmas Day. Same for LeBron James. Playing without its biggest star, Los Angeles stayed right with the Miami Heat for most of the day before slipping to a 101-95 loss against the defending NBA champions on Wednesday. Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade had 23 points apiece, and James added 19 in the Heat's sixth straight win.
