MIAMI (AP) Rashard Lewis scored 11 of his 15 points in the fourth quarter and the Miami Heat rallied for a 104-101 preseason win against the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday.

The Heat played without NBA MVP LeBron James, who was out with ``general soreness,'' according to coach Erik Spoelstra.

Josh Harrelson's 3-pointer with 1:01 remaining put the Heat ahead for good at 102-99. Harrelson finished with 10 points.

The Spurs (3-2) had one last chance but Cory Joseph's 3-point attempt bounced off the rim. Danny Green led San Antonio with 17 points.
