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.
