MIAMI (AP) - LeBron James practiced with the Miami Heat on Wednesday, one day after leaving Game 4 of the NBA Finals in the fourth quarter because of leg cramps.

The league's MVP says he's feeling better. He plans to continue getting treatment until Game 5 of the series on Thursday night, when a Heat victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder would clinch the championship that James has been chasing for nine pro seasons.

Even up three games to one in the best-of-seven series, James says he's keeping his focus. ``My job is not done,'' he says.

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says James was able to go through practice without difficulty. Meanwhile, Thunder guard Kevin Durant says his team is looking forward to the challenge of Game 5.
