The Heat, a couple nights back, had each of the Big 3 had a 30-10 game. Chris Bosh scored 31, with 12 rebounds, Dwyane Wade had 30 points and 11 rebounds, and Lebron, well he had 33 points and 10 rebounds. That is almost as crazy as this year’s March Madness.

Here are some stats from ESPN:

“It’s the first time this season the Heat’s Big 3 have each scored 30 points in the same game. In fact, it’s just the third 30-point game for Bosh this season. Last season, Bosh had 15 such games and the year before he did it 17 times.

From Elias: It’s the 2nd straight game that James, Wade and Bosh have each had at least 20 points and 10 rebounds in the same game. They are the first trio of teammates to hit those marks in consecutive games since Sidney Wicks, Lloyd Neal and John Johnson did it for the Trail Blazers in March 1975.

You can’t make this up. The two games between the Heat and Rockets this season ended with the exact score; the Heat winning 125-119.

From Elias: LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh each had at least 30 points and 10 rebounds in the Heat win. It’s just the 2nd time in NBA history three teammates have reached those marks in a non-overtime game. The only other trio to do it were Oscar Robertson, Wayne Embry and Jack Twyman who did it for the Cincinnati Royals in a loss to the Philadelphia Warriors back on February 3rd, 1961.”

This Heat team, they are good, really good. I would say they are the best. I know, that I go on and on about the Heat, but they are good. Just so you Laker and Bulls fans don’t get to mad at me, I admit that they will give the Heat good competition, but they will lose.

Here is the other deal, Knicks won a couple nights ago. You might think so what, but these Knicks and Carmelo, have had a rough go at it since the trade that brought Carmelo Anthony and Chauncy Billups to New York. Last night, they beat a fairly good team, Orlando Magic, in Overtime. Carmelo went for 39 points, with 30 in the second half. Stoudemire had 20 points, on 10 shots. This was an important game for the Knicks to win, but are they going to be playoff contenders, will they even make the playoffs? Who knows.

 

Last nights game was a perfect example of the Heat failing to execute in the second half, and more specifically the 4th quarter. The Heat put up 30 points first quarter, 33 second quarter, and 30 second half, something is seriously wrong with that. The Magic, who the heat were playing, went on a 40-9 run in the 3rd quarter. Wade and James went a combined 3 for 13 in the second half. Come on now, two of the best players in the NBA go for 3 buckets in a half a game.

But this isn’t Miami’s only blown lead of the game, they did it against the New York Knicks, Indiana Pacers and Utah Jazz.

The Heat have the Talent they just need to win. Do you think that the Heat should be worried about these loses and do you think they are still NBA Championship Contenders? Comment if you think the Heat should be worried and vote if they are still contenders.
