Bosh Stars As Heat Beat Hawks Without Wade

Miami (AFP) – Chris Bosh scored 19 points and Ray Allen added 17 to spark the Miami Heat to victory over visiting Atlanta Hawks 104-88, giving the reigning NBA champions their fourth win in a row.

Despite star guard Dwyane Wade sitting out the contest as a precaution due to worries over knee injuries, the Heat managed to defeat the Hawks for an eighth consecutive meeting between the clubs.

Mario Chalmers added 14 points, including nine in a row during a pivotal 23-6 Miami run in the third quarter to give the hosts the lead for good, and LeBron James had 13 for the Heat, who improved to 6-1 in home games this season.

Mike Scott had 15 points and 10 rebounds off the bench for the Hawks, while Al Horford and Pero Antic added 12 points each in Atlanta’s 14th loss in its past 16 games against Miami.

The Heat, 8-3, moved two games in front of the Hawks, 6-5, atop the Southeast division. Miami will next face Orlando in games Wednesday and Saturday while Atlanta will face Detroit on Wednesday and Friday.

  • Defend Liberty

    Since each of us has unique intellect, talents, and experience, the only way to make us all equal is to treat each of us unequally.

  • Liberalism is Nonsense

    In part, the case for liberty rests upon our recognition that the most effective way to adapt to the future’s unpredictability is to ensure that each of us is free to best adapt to the unknown future circumstances we are sure to face.

    Common illusions conjured up by those attempting to impose centralized control include “social justice” and stopping “global warming”.

  • Socialism is Organized Evil

    Most collectivist attacks attempt to exploit the common misconception that the term “individualist” refers only to isolated individuals.

  • Benjamin Dover

    Since it is impossible to know who among us knows best, we trust the competitive efforts of many to help us see better ways of doing things.

  • Socialism is Organized Evil

    Twisting liberty’s definition from “minimized coercion” into “removed obstacles” is the basis for replacing liberty with centralized power.
