Heat shoot for 11th straight road win in Charlotte

Jan 3, 2011 - 3:44 PM (Sports Network) - The red-hot Miami Heat shoot for their 11th straight win on the road tonight when they visit the Queen City to take on the Charlotte Bobcats.

LeBron James and Dwyane Wade each scored 25, both with 16 in the second half, on Saturday as the Heat rallied from a 20-point deficit in the second quarter to post a 114-107 win over the Golden State Warriors.

James also had 10 assists and seven rebounds, while Wade ended with eight helpers and six boards, as the Heat won their fifth in a row and 17th in their last 18 tries. Chris Bosh tallied 20 points and 11 rebounds for Miami, which limited the Warriors to 30.2 percent (13-of-43) from the field in the second half.

"Those aren't the habits that we want to build and that's not how we wanted to start 2011," Miami coach Erik Spoelstra told the Heat's website. "We talked about being humble and being hungry, having a sense of urgency. I hope that malaise that we were in the first half was an aberration."

Miami, which is 12-5 overall on the road, finished 2010 with a franchise- record 15 wins in December and will be attempting to win 11 consecutive away from home for the first time since Feb. 4-March 7, 1998 tonight.

The Bobcats, who are closing up a five-game homestand, fell to 2-1 under interim coach Paul Silas on Friday when Monta Ellis' layup with 1:20 remaining proved to be the difference, as the Golden State Warriors held off Charlotte, 96-95.

Silas, who coached James during his first two seasons in the NBA with Cleveland, replaced Larry Brown on Dec. 22.

Stephen Jackson scored 22 points and pulled down six rebounds, but missed a three-pointer as time expired as the Bobcats fell to 2-2 on their residency. Gerald Wallace donated 20 points and eight boards for Charlotte, which got 12 points and six assists from D.J. Augustin.

"In the NBA all you can really ask for is a chance," Bobcats guard Gerald Henderson said. "We'll move onto the next game."

The Heat have won two straight against the Bobcats, including a 95-87 triumph in South Beach on Nov. 19 but have dropped six of seven in Charlotte.
