Miami Heat pound the Bobcats

+Read full article

The Miami Heat improved to 5-0 with Sunday’s 129-90 pounding of the hapless Charlotte Bobcats. The Heat jumped out to a 33-15 lead after the first quarter and never looked back. Miami had five players score in double figures and was led by Chris Bosh’s game high 24. LeBron James added 16 points and 9 rebounds in just 28 minutes. Dwayne Wade kicked in 22 points and six assists in 29 minutes.

Heat point guards Mario Chalmers and Norris Cole had another excellent day on Sunday. Chalmers scored 16 against Charlotte and was 4-for-4 from beyond the three point line. For the season Chalmers is a scorching 9-for-12 from three point range. Rookie guard Norris Cole, Chalmers’ backup, also added 16 points along with nine assists in the thrashing of Charlotte. The young guard has had an excellent first week in the NBA averaging 11 points per game and providing Coach Erik Spoelstra with a dynamic scoring threat off the bench.

The only Heat player who didn’t score against Charlotte was newcomer Shane Battier. The veteran forward has struggled with his shot in the early season. Battier is just 1-for-13 from the floor in his first five games with Miami. Despite Battier’s struggles there’s no great cuase for concern as Miami is averaging a NBA best 109.6 points per game.

The loss dropped Charlotte to 1-3 on the season. The Bobcats are allowing a league worst 105 points per game.
