Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE More Blowouts: In a 7 game scheduled Saturday, 4 games turned out to be blowouts. The Miami Heat improves to 10-1 in the month of February, in the win over the Philadelphia 76ers. LeBron James, despite scoring only 5 point in the first half, would come out the second to finish with a triple double of 16 points (7 of 12), 10 rebounds and 11 assists. This is only LeBron’s second sub 20 point game of the season, and he got triple doubles in both of them . In the place of his NBA debut, Dwyane Wade scores his career 16,000th point in Philly to go with his 33 points (14 of 18) and 6 rebounds. Jrue Holiday of the Sixers led the way with 21 points on 8 of 11 shooting, 6 rebounds and 6 assists. FROLO: Andrew Bynum’s hair will never cease to amuse us all (Via: @noamschiller).

Ty Lawson had 20 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists, while Kemba Walker led all Bobcats with 24 points on 9 of 14 shooting and 5 assists. Transition Monster: Andre Miller will never throw a bad pass.
