Battle of the Champs Goes to Miami
By: Matt Blue
The Miami HEAT left no doubt in this one as they completely dismantled the DIrkless Mavs 110-95. The game was never even as close as the final score. LeBron James led the HEAT with 24 points while Wade put on a show with some nifty passes. Chris Bosh also added 17 points. The play of the game took place in the first half when D Wade threw a full court touchdown pass to LeBron James who caught the ball while surrounded by two defenders and then he abruptly capped off the play with an easy layup. It was a terrific play by two extraordinary athletes.
Dwyane Wade and LeBron James both sat out the entire 4th quarter while their team enjoyed a 36 point lead. The HEAT’s defense was also very dominant and the HEAT did a much better job cleaning up the boards against Dallas.
The HEAT will look to carry their swagger and mojo back to Miami for a showdown against apromising Utah team. Hopefully, they will be able to carry these excellent 48 minute efforts to their upcoming games.
