LeBron James leaped as high as he can soar. Dwyane Wade shot better than he ever has before.
And when the Miami Heat stars are on their games like that ... ''We probably won't lose,'' James said.
Such was the case Monday night. James scored 27 points, Wade had 26 and the Heat pulled away in the second half to beat the Atlanta Hawks 101-92, improving to 10-1 at home this season.
James (10 for 16) and Wade (11 for 13, the best single-game shooting percentage of his career) made 21 of 29 shots for Miami, which shot 58 percent as a team. Chris Bosh had 14 points and 10 rebounds and Norris Cole made all four of his shots to score 10 for the Heat, who handed the Hawks just their second loss in 11 games.
''Just trying to be as efficient as I can,'' Wade said. ''Shooting 13 shots, it's nothing I'm used to. Some nights you go for 11 for 13. Some nights you go 3 for 13. But you just try to continue to be aggressive and continue taking sh...
BEST OF MAXIM
If you were to check out most people's cell phone wallpaper, you'd probably get a mix of photos from significant others/spouses, memorable days, or vacations.For an NBA star like LeBron James, he has idol facing him:The wallpaper on Lebron James' cellphone apparently is a digitally created photo of himself standing in triple-threat position as Michael Jordan, in his prime...
Mark Jackson believes Dwyane Wade is the third-best shooting guard of all-time.
ROCK THE RIM
Video: Seems like they need to raise the rim.
Dwyane Wade is old, well, he’s 30 but he’s playing old. His athleticism has declined and he’s lost a step. It’s nothing to be ashamed of but it explains his mood swings on the court and his transition from legit game to playing dirty like an old man at the Y.
And it started a couple of seasons ago, became apparent during the playoffs last year and is flat out obvious this...
Charles Barkley called out Dwyane Wade the past two weeks, and LeBron James says the TNT analyst needs to “shut up” now that Wade proved him wrong.
The Miami Heat have appeared on TNT’s nationally televised game the past two Thursdays. Barkley has gone after Wade’s play while discussing the games on “Inside the NBA.” He has said that the Miami Heat guard is older and...
LeBron James isn’t the same galaxy as Micheal Jordan, nope. — And it’s going to be a while longer, still. James, though to his credit does have a Championship ring, but that’s 5 behind Jordan. — Plus let me ask you this, who would you rather have the ball in their hands in the final [...]
Over the past year or so, many have begun to wonder whether Dwyane Wade’s game is falling off as he gets older. For a player whose game is so based on his athletic ability, it’s a legitimate concern for someone who is now 30 years old.
Charles Barkley is one of the people who believe Wade is already on the downswing, as he has been vocal recently about...
Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade is determined to show everyone including TNT analyst Charles Barkley, who often says Wade's game is falling off rapidly, that he is still one of the best.
Wade claims he doesn't hear the criticism from Barkley. "I'm not the all-time leading scorer around here for nothing," said Wade via FOX Sports Florida after going 11 of 13...
Looks like he lent the Heat a helping hand…I mean foot.
Miami and Atlanta met up Monday night in a matchup between the Southeast Division’s top two teams. The Heat walked away with the 101-92 LeBron James’ game high 27 points, Dwyane Wade’s 26 points, and some fancy footwork by referee Karl Lane.
With the Heat down by one late in the second quarter, James rebounded a Hawks...
If you happen to be looking for the hustle play on Monday night in the Association, you need check out this effort from Miami Heat star Ray Allen.Watch as Ray makes this amazing save which ultimately ends in a two-handed LeBron James dunk:
Jimmie Taylor had some impressive moments at the LeBron James Skills Academy. Here are highlights of the Alabama signee in action.
Ref helps the Heat OK, so maybe Dallas Maverick owner Mark Cuban was right after all. The Heat have the refs in their pocket. LeBron James throws an outlet pass too far, but a ref “trying” to get out of the way ends up kicking the ball back to Mario Chalmers who ends up getting [...]
