LeBron had a poor first half as his flu like symptoms threatened to condemn Miami to their fourth consecutive loss, but he shrugged it off after half time en route to 33 points and 10 assists in just 33 minutes of game time.
Bosh had a hugely consistent game, which has been a rarity for the power forward, on his way to a well earned 30 points.
Miami were down big early and were struggling to find any consistency on the offensive end, other than the points of Bosh. Bosh had 12 in the second to keep Miami remotely close, but they still trailed 63-49 at the half. After the break LeBron James came out steam rolling, scoring 14 points including a flurry of 3s to give Miami a solid lead heading into the final period.
Miami outscored the Spurs 71-35 in the second half, in one of the most incredible displays of offense we have seen in some time. The momentum was all with San Antonio and they were largely in cruise control throughout the first half, but LeBron put the team on his broad shoulders and, along with 18 from returning local hero Mike Miller, helped Miami to a much needed win with the Lakers incoming on Thursday.
The Heat move to 9-4, still trailing Atlanta and Orlando in their own division.
Dwyane Wade should be back for friday’s blockbuster hosting Kobe Bryant and his LA team.
