Miami Heat vs. Charlotte Bobcats: Live Score and Analysis

The Miami Heat (7-3) comfortably defeated the Charlotte Bobcats (5-5) Saturday night behind an efficient 30 points in just 32 minutes from LeBron James.

He was shooting 61 percent from the field coming into this game and his impressive 13-18 display against the Bobcats will bring that number up even more.

Michael Beasley and Chris Andersen hit double-figures as well. Andersen pitched in 10 and Beasley continued to make his case for a more significant role by scoring 15 points on 7-of-14 shooting.

The Bobcats were able to hang tough for much of the game due to timely shooting from Kemba Walker, who finished with 22 points on 7-of-18 shooting.

Jeffrey Taylor contributed a season-high 14, Gerald Henderson added 13 and Ramon Sessions scored 11. But their efforts weren't enough to overcome the two-headed attack of Beasley and James.
