Heat Take Down Magic in Home Opener
How do you respond when one of your biggest rivals calls you a lap dog, arrogant and questions your competitiveness? By completely smashing them in the face with your awesomeness and beating the crap out of them by 26 points. That's one way to go about it. And, coincidentally enough, that's the route the Miami Heat decided to take last night when they took down the mouthy Orlando Magic in a 96-76 beat down at a packed American Airlines Arena.
Dwyane Wade led all scorers with 26 points, while LeBron James added 15 points with 7 assists. After a rather lethargic first half that featured eight lead changes, the Heat came out and decided to kick it into "Nail The Whole World In The Ocular Cavity" mode and absolutely ripped into Orlando with a 14-0 run to start the second half.
