In a game that was much tougher than expected, the Miami Heat narrowly defeated the Charlotte Bobcats by a score of 105-92. The Bobcats were within two points as late as the 6:24 mark of the fourth quarter.
Led by Dwyane Wade, Miami managed to pull away.
D-Wade finished with a game-high 29 points, tacking on an additional nine rebounds and five assists. LeBron James was right behind him with 27 points, 12 rebounds, eight assists and four steals.
James' two late three-pointers helped extend an eventually insurmountable late-game advantage.
So how did it all go down and who did what? To give you a hint, the Heat overcame a poor night from one of their stars and a no-show from their reserves.
