The absence of star Dwyane Wade is not slowing down the Miami Heat. Behind Chris Bosh and LeBron James, Miami moved to 6-0 this season without Wade, easily handling the Philadelphia 76ers Saturday night, 113-92. Philadelphia had entered the contest holding opponents to 86.7 points per game, second-best in the NBA.
Bosh scored 30 points, pushing his career total over the 12,000 point mark. Miami is 7-0 in games in which Bosh scores at least 20 points. James was his versatile self, adding 28 points, nine rebounds, five assists, four steals and three blocks in the victory. The win pushed the heat into a tie with the Orlando Magic atop the Southeast Division.
Lou Williams paced the 76ers, scoring 22 points, and second-year man Evan Turner chipped in 16 points. Philadelphia has now lost eight of their last night contests against Miami, including the playoffs.
