New Jersey Nets-Miami Heat: Miami’s Big Three Overwhelm Nets Again

November 6th, 2010 by Ryan Comstock Leave a reply »
For the second time in six days, the Miami Heat's "Big Three" of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh were too much for the New Jersey Nets, as Miami won, 101-89.

Their Halloween meeting last Sunday resulted in a 101-78 Heat victory, so at least the Nets were able to improve offensively.

James, Wade and Bosh combined for 73 points, with Wade being the high man at 29. Wade added in 10 rebounds while James dished out nine assists.

Late in the third quarter on a fast-break, Wade connected with James on an alley-oop in which Wade was airborne near the rim before flipping the ball up. James plucked it out of mid-air and slammed it down emphatically, leading to a New Jersey time-out.

The play will surely be on every highlight show tonight and will probably make some appearances all year.

New Jersey's leading scorer was Anthony Morrow with 25. He also grabbed seven rebounds and displayed moves off-dribble he had not shown before. He is normally a spot-up, catch-and-shoot guy, so it was nice to see him make some plays on his own.

Aside from Morrow, it didn't seem that anyone from the Nets came to play.
