Facing a high scoring Houston Rockets team without Chris Bosh, the Miami Heat found themselves thrust into a good old fashioned cock fight. Unfortunately for the Rockets, even without Bosh - the Heat bring two Big Swinging Dicks to the scrum. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade combined for 63 points in a 114-108 win at the American Airlines Arena Wednesday night, holding off a game Rockets team led by James Harden's team-high 36 points in defeat. 

Early on it was the story of how the Miami Heat got their 2006 Sexy Back. 
Udonis Haslem started 3-3 with six rebounds in the first quarter and Wade slashed, dashed, and double-clutch-breakaway dunked his way to 11 in the first twelve minutes, looking as fresh as he has all season. Houston however, coming off an NBA-record-tying 23 three-pointers made the night before vs. Golden State, was able to keep pace with the Heat on the offensive end - finishing the first quarter down just two, 32-30. 

Houston remained hot in the second, getting out to a 50-43 lead with just a few minutes remaining in the half -- and then the refs done did it. Wade pick pocketed a Rocket, and did what Flying Death Machines gon' do -- he found LeBron James flying through the sky for the slam. However the basket was disallowed, apparently due to the little known "no LeBron James flying allowed" rule. After the timeout LeBron was clearly dealing with a case of the pissedoffness, and Heat went on what would end up being a 34-12 run into the third quarter, to go up 77-62. Said run included more classic, jaw dropping, boner inducing Wade to LeBron full court SEX FOR YOUR EYES.

Following all that good shit, and up by as many as 17 in the second half, it looked as if the Heat were going to roll - but not so fast my friend (Mutumbo finger wave). The Rockets were able to cut it to three late, but in the end the Heat were able to get a clutch Battier three and some timely vintage D-Wade defense to seal the deal. 

The Heat improved to 20-3 at home and a Eastern Conference best 16-5 against the West. Next up for the Heat, the LA Clippers at home 8pm Friday Night. Tits, Heat fans? Tits Heat fans.
