Recap: Philadelphia vs. Miami

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Dwyane Wade had a game-high 33 points on 14-of-18 shooting from the field, while LeBron James registered a triple- double with 16 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists, to push the Miami Heat past the Philadelphia 76ers, 114-90, on Saturday at Wells Fargo Center.

Mario Chalmers and Chris Bosh scored 14 and 13 points, respectively, in the victory, which was the Heat's 10th straight. It was also the 12th straight victory in their series versus Philadelphia and sixth straight in the City of Brotherly Love.

Jrue Holiday paced Philadelphia with 21 points to go along with six rebounds and six assists for the Sixers, who have lost four straight. Nick Young netted 19 points and Evan Turner had 16 points, seven rebounds and five helpers in the defeat.

"That team is big-time good," Philadelphia coach Doug Collins said of the Heat. "They're a great team. I don't see any weaknesses. They're poised to make another run at another championship."

The Sixers held a 20-15 lead just past the midway point of the first quarter, but Miami responded with the next seven points. James' layup to close the period made it 27-24 in favor of the Heat.

Both teams had an efficient second stanza and the Sixers stayed within striking distance, but Miami ended the half on a strong note. Chalmers' layup and Ray Allen's 3-pointer gave the Heat a 56-47 lead at the break.

James only had five points on 2-of-4 shooting in the first half, but the Heat continued their team play into the second half.

"I think people recognize what we're doing," James added. "We're playing some good ball right now. We came here to take care of business."

Turner's fadeaway jumper minutes into the second half brought the home team within six points, but the contest quickly changed. Chalmers kicked off a game-changing 17-4 surge with a trey, and Bosh capped it off with a slam to make it 78-59 with 3:51 remaining in the third.

Miami had the momentum and the game in control, taking an 87-71 margin into the fourth.

The Heat never faltered in the final 12 minutes and led by as many as 26 with 4 1/2 minutes remaining before cruising to the victory.

"Professional win," Miami coach Eric Spoelstra said. "Offensively, just a very efficient basketball game. Professional win. We move on, less than 24 hours and we lace them up."
