Well despite all the hype we only got to see the “Three Kings” on the floor for a total of three minutes during Tuesday nights preseason opener. Judging by the celebrities in the arena one could almost forget that this was a meaningless tune up match.
Miami proved that even with one of their three main stars missing they can still put out a formidable line up on the court. LeBron and Bosh both had successful debuts during the win. With Wade out, James took control by scoring 18 points in 27 minutes, while Bosh finished with a 20-point, six-rebound performance in 26 minutes.
The most important thing now becomes Wade’s health, he is expected to miss at least a week, which would sideline him for a couple exhisbition games.
“It’s a slight tweak of his hamstring. We’ll reevaluate it in a week,” Spoelstra said. “It was really an inconsequential play. Hopefully, it’s not too serious.”
