Dwyane Wade had 15 points while Chris Bosh added 12, but this night was all about James and his ability get to the paint where he either scored or got to the charity stripe.

The Heat are -10 point favorites over the 76ers with an over/under point total set at 204. The Miami Heat have locked down the second seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs and this game has no bearing on anything for them. While the Heat are two time defending NBA Champions it is doubtful we will see LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh nor any of the other stars who are an integral part of this team. The heat rested their starters last game as well to take the loss that sealed their playoff position. Facing a 76ers team that was one of the worst in the NBA, it would do the Heat little good to play their best players as the rest will do them much more good than the win. The Read More
