Miami Heat Blow Out Brooklyn Nets
Bad idea, though James decided not to fire back.
"I let my game do the talking," James said.
No other response was necessary.
James had 24 points, nine rebounds and seven assists, and the Heat blew out Brooklyn in the second half for a 105-85 victory Wednesday night, their 13th in a row over the Nets.
"When we're playing at a high level, that's what we're capable of doing," said James, who acknowledged being annoyed by Evans' comments to the Daily News. "So we showed tonight what we're capable of, both defensively and offensively. The whole package, everything, we had it going tonight."
In their first game since falling in double overtime Sunday at Boston, the Heat made sure this would be a much easier night. James, Wade and Bosh were all on the bench long before the end, and Miami shot 52% from the field and made 11-of-19 3-pointers.
Brook Lopez, chosen to his first All-Star team Wednesday, scored 21 points for the Nets, who had their eight-game home winning streak snapped. They fought back from a tough start to briefly take a third-quarter lead before James led the onslaught that sapped the energy from what had been a lively crowd for the nationally televised game.
"It's the third time we've played them and we turn it over 19 times in all three games," Nets interim coach P.J. Carlesimo said. "I thought our guys really played an excellent first half and then we dug a big hole doing the same things that we did in the third quarter."
Playing for the first time since visiting the White House on Monday, the Heat looked plenty capable of getting invited back next year. A 10-10 team on the road when they arrived in Brooklyn, the Heat were nearly flawless offensively and defensively in the third quarter and outscored the Nets 36-14.
"It's the first (game in the) arena, had some good old-fashioned smack talk before the game, it was great," Bosh said. "Guys were motivated tonight. We're trying to find a way to bring that energy every night."
