Charlotte Bobcats vs. Miami Heat: Live Score, Results and Game Highlights

We've found the Heat's weakness, and his name is Dwyane Wade

Without wade in the lineup the Heat got their biggest win of the season, 109-77, led by LeBron James' 32 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds.

Okay, Wade isn't the Heat's weakness, but they played a very well-balanced and complete game without him. 

Norris Cole and Ray Allen combined for 29 points off the bench on 10-of-18 shooting. Everyone not named Joel Anthony scored, including Juwan Howard who got his first bucket of his 19th NBA season.

The Bobcats, who rushed out to a 19-8 lead, couldn't find the bucket after that—scoring just 58 points the rest of the game.

As a team, Charlotte shot just 33.7 percent from the floor and 20 percent from beyond the arc. 

Shockingly enough, the Heat out-rebounded the Bobcats 48-45, which isn't a lot, but it's still impressive for the Heat. 

Next up on the Heat's slate is an inner-state matchup with the Orlando Magic for their 27th straight win.
