Miami Heat vs. Charlotte Bobcats: Live Score, Results and Game Highlights
The Heat were led by 26, yes 26, from Mike Miller. He shot 9-of-15 from the field, and 7-of-10 from beyond the arc. And he made it look ridiculously easy.
Charlotte just wasn't ready to compete with the Heat tonight, even without the Heats biggest superstars.
As a team they shot just 31.8 percent from the field and 18.8 percent from beyond the arc. It's clear that the Bobcats are the worst team in the NBA.
They just don't have any offensive flow or defensive pressure.
Chris Bosh added 18 points, and shockingly, Rashard Lewis was the Heat's third leading scorer, with 14 points on the night.
Next up for the Heat is a matchup with the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night.
Miller is the fifth Heat player to score 25 in a game this season. Last non-Big-3-and-Rio player to score 25 for Heat was Eddie House.— Tim Reynolds (@ByTimReynolds) April 6, 2013

The Bobcats are still fighting, they've got the Heat lead down to just seven as the refs go to the monitor.

That's a LONG time. Not sure most teams have been waiting that long for something like this.

It's an eight-point game with under 3 left in the fourth. Not that the Bobcats could score eight points in the final three minutes and hold the Heat scoreless.
But you've got to give credit to them for still fighting.
Heat 80, Bobcats 72—2:57 remaining in the 4th quarter
A rare solid defensive set for the Bobcats. That's exciting for the Heat to see.
Wow, the refs just missed two fouls on the Heat, and Shane Battier stepping out of bound then being the first to touch the ball.
Heat 77, Bobcats 66—4:36 remaining in the 4th quarter
Andersen is holding his right hand after that block, let's hope that he's okay. I'm thinking after going through all those tattoos he should be fine.
Heat 75, Bobcats 66—5:55 remaining in the 4th quarter
I feel like the Bobcats make one too many passes, if that's possible for an awful team.
It's like they are afraid to to miss shots—even though they do it all the time.

And we've just had a midcourt shot for $7,777. Question now is whether Bobcats coach Mike Dunlap keeps him in the game.— Ira Winderman (@IraHeatBeat) April 6, 2013
Jeffery Taylor comes in for the Bobcats and knocks down a quick three, cuts the Heat's lead to just 10.
Heat 68, Bobcats 58—8:50 remaining in the 4th quarter
The Bird Man with a massive flush. Dwyane Wade with the Bird Man wings on the sideline. Goodness that was a strong slam.
Heat 68, Bobcats 53—10:30 remaining in the 4th quarter
Heat 66, Bobcats 53 after three. Mercifully this will end soon enough. Bobcats scored eight in the third quarter.— Ira Winderman (@IraHeatBeat) April 6, 2013
Well that was an awful quarter, for both teams, but specifically for the Bobcats who scored just 8 points in the entire 12 minutes.
30.6 FG% and 10.0 3PFG% just isn't getting it done for the Bobcats.
Heat 66, Bobcats 53—end of the 3rd quarter
Poor Josh McRoberts, he just clanked an alley-oop attempt.
Does it amaze anyone else that the Bobcats are down 11, even though they've forced four more turnovers, and the Heat don't have much talent on the floor?
Heat 64, Bobcats 53—1:18 remaining in the 3rd quarter
Heat have now attempted 28 3-pointers.

I've never seen that before in the NBA. Gerald Henderson hit with a "T" but the ref let the Heat play their possession before he called it. I'm assuming because they had the advantage.
I've seen that in soccer, not in the NBA.
Heat 62, Bobcats 51—2:50 remaining in the 3rd quarter
Yep, you've heard it right. There are "Let's Go Heat" chants roaring through the Bobcats' arena.
Heat 61, Bobcats 51—4:56 remaining in the 3rd quarter
Wow. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist with one of the ugliest mid-range jumpers you'll see. He missed the rim by two feet, and that's being generous.
Did no one realize that when they scouted him, or did they just not care that his jumper is rather awful.
Heat 59, Bobcats 51—5:59 remaining in the 3rd quarter
I'm assuming he's referring to the awful shot selection, turnovers and awful defense.
My Lord these Bobcats are capable of incredible boneheaded things.— Ira Winderman (@IraHeatBeat) April 6, 2013
Mike Miller with another three ball, that's his fifth on the night.
Heat 59, Bobcats 47—8:09 remaining in the 3rd quarter
Does anyone else think of NBA Jam and the extra-point shots when you see the Bobcats "C" circles on their court?
