Spurs Vs. Heat Final Score: LeBron James And Miami Go On Huge Second Half Run To Defeat San Antonio

The Miami Heat ended their three game losing streak with a little home cooking and an incredible second half run that sealed a 120-98 victory over the San Antonio Spurs. The Heat trailed by as many as 17 points in the first half, but a phenomenal third quarter from LeBron James and company quickly erased the deficit. Playing without Dwyane Wade who badly rolled his ankle in Denver last Friday night, James dropped 33 points on San Antonio. He came out of the locker room after halftime on a mission, hitting seven of nine attempts from the floor in the third quarter alone. While he's avoided the three-point line for much of this young season, James hit four of six from behind the arc on Tuesday as he got Miami rolling in the second half. It led to a 39-12 point differential in the third quarter alone.

Chris Bosh added 30 points, combining with James to fill the void created by Wade's absence. He grabbed 8 boards and dished five assists as well, matching up on the interior with Tim Duncan. Mike Miller also lit it up in his first game of the season after dealing with a hernia injury. Miller was a perfect six for six from downtown, adding 18 points off the bench.

Miami will look to build on the momentum of the second half on Thursday night when they host Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers.
