UNDATED (AP) — LeBron James tied a career-low for shots in a playoff game, but he came away with his highest field-goal percentage as the Miami Heat opened their NBA playoff schedule with a 110-87 rout of Milwaukee.

James scored 27 points on 9-of-11 shooting while contributing 10 rebounds and eight assists. Ray Allen came off the bench to add 20 points and Dwyane (dwayn) Wade finished with 16.

Miami overcame 19 turnovers by shooting 56 percent from the field.

Brandon Jennings had a team-high 26 points and Monta Ellis added 22, but the rest of the Bucks contributed just 39 points on 37 percent shooting.

Also in NBA playoff openers, Manu Ginobili (MAN’-oo jih-NOH’-blee) and Tony Parker each scored 18 points as the San Antonio Spurs handled the Los Angeles Lakers 91-79. Tim Duncan chipped in 17 points and 10 rebounds for the Spurs, who never trailed after Duncan hit consecutive jumpers to put his team ahead 4-2.

Kevin Durant scored 24 points and Russell Westbrook fell two rebounds shy of a triple-double as Oklahoma City clobbered Houston 120-91. Westbrook finished with 19 points and 10 assists, while Serge Ibaka (ih-BAH’-kah) added 17 points and seven rebounds.

Indiana’s five starters all scored in double figures in a 107-90 rout of Atlanta. Paul George finished with a triple-double of 23 points, 11 rebounds and 12 assists to lead the Pacers.

DENVER (AP) — The Golden State Warriors have learned that All-Star forward David Lee will miss the rest of the postseason due to a torn right hip flexor suffered in their series-opening loss at Denver on Saturday.

The injury leaves the Warriors without one of their top big men. The All-Star led the NBA with 56 double-doubles and averaged 18.5 points, 11.2 rebounds and 3.5 assists.
