MIAMI -- LeBron James didn't think anybody would be talking about defense after the offensive show his Miami Heat put on Monday night.
The Heat scored their most points since the fifth game of last season in a 124-99 rout of Phoenix at AmericanAirlines Arena. They had a team-record eight different players make a 3-pointer while shooting 57.1 percent from beyond the arc.
But James, who scored a game-high 23 points, said it wouldn't have been possible had the Heat not played such sound defense.
"We preach defense here," James said. "A lot of people are not going to talk about it because of how well we're shooting the ball right now, how well we're scoring the ball. But when we defend at a high level, that's what we want to do in this building, when we defensive rebound, when we turn teams over, it makes the offense that much easier."
