LeBron CGI Enhanced vs. Spurs; Next Up: Durant and Thunder

In their first meeting since last years epic NBA Finals, the Miami Heat blew the doors off the San Antono Spurs 113-101. In contrast to last years seven-game craziness, this one had very little drama, as the Heat pushed their lead to nearly 30 -- with the starters sitting on the bench most of the fourth quarter. The score doesn't tell the entire story here, the Heat put that good ass whoop on the San Antonio's Sunday.

Chris Bosh continues to play first class ball, scoring 24 points on 9-10 shooting. LeBron battled foul trouble all game, but was a dime-dishing, trick-shot-making, machine when he was on the court. James finished with 18 points, seven rebounds, and six assists in limited action.

Dwyane Wade, returning after missing the last four games with knee soreness, came off the bench and scored eights points to go with five assists. It was the first time Wade has come off the bench since 2008. Wade ended up only playing 24 minutes, and was noticeably rusty at times.

Tim Duncan led the Spurs with 23 points, Boris Diaw had 15.

The Spurs played without three familiar faces from last years Finals, as Leonard, Splitter, and Green all missed the game due to injury.

That pass, though. LeBron gets credit for an assist on this play, but he really should get at least a point too. While guys are dropping 30,40,50, even 60 points a night around the league lately, James just keeps being his usual well-oiled-efficient-right basketball play-making self.

Play of the Game

Not fair. LeBron continues to do things you thought were impossible before he joined the Heat, but now can totally believe. He does things that, if in a movie, you would be sure were CGI enhanced or created.

Boshua Q. Bear has been amazeballs lately. He's the best.

Next up for the Heat is a match-up with the team they beat in their other most recent Finals win, the Oklahoma Durants Thunder.
