Portland Trail Blazers vs. Miami Heat: Postgame Grades and Analysis for Miami
USA TODAY Sports

LeBron James' will be done.

The Chosen One chose to play his way into the record books against the Portland Trail Blazers, leading the Miami Heat to their 35th victory of the season.

While the Heat won by 13 points (117-104), the game didn't get away from Portland until the waning minutes.

South Beach's finest fell behind early, but a late surge in the first half allowed them to cut the lead to one heading into halftime. From there, it was a game of back-and-forth until the latter half of the fourth quarter when Dwyane Wade and James took over.

Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge torched the Heat's porous defense, but the trio of Chris Bosh, James and Wade was simply too much. Miami's Big Three combined for 86 points, and inside of five minutes in the final period, the Heat ran away and never looked back.

Well, maybe LeBron looked back.

He had to make sure that he made history, after all.
