Last night the Heat traveled to Brooklyn, for the first and only time in 2013. They left after giving the local fans a show. Through the first half of basketball the game was tied at 49. I was starting to get worried that this may be one of the games the heat would let slip out of their hands, by letting the other team stay close all game. But then the third quarter came around where Lebron and the Heat went on a 16-2 run. They did not look back from there winning 105 to 85.
James had another solid performance, going 10-18 from the field and 3-4 from behind the three point line. He finished with 24 points, 9 rebound, and 7 assists. Dwayne Wade also had a great game, going 9-16 finishing with 21 points. I was surprised, on the second possession for the Heat Wade pulled up from three and drilled it, something we haven’t seen from Wade in a while. Bosh, who played the most of any of the big three, 36 minutes, finished with 16 points and only four rebound. Chris Andersen Aka Birdman played almost ten minutes, but looked very impressive scoring three points, but had 5 rebounds, three being offensive. Norris Cole scored the most on the Miami bench with seven points.
There was a lot of trash talking before this game, most coming from Brooklyn forward Reggie Evens. He didn’t back up his argument with his stats, finishing with zero points and six rebound. Overall it was a good team win for the Heat. Another win in a very long season. It is very possible that these teams will meet up sometime in the playoffs in a few months.
