LeBron James scored 32 points and dished out 10 assists and Miami (55-14) brushed aside the Charlotte Bobcats 109-77 on Sunday night to extend the hot streak to 26 straight games.
Star guard Dwyane Wade sat out the game on Sunday and after being questionable for the game, Miami coach Erik Spoelstra revealed that he will miss back-to-back contests.
This means that Guard Mike Miller, who start for him against the Bobcats, will again start in his place on Monday night.
Miami have dug themselves in big holes several times during the streak, but James isn’t too worried.
At least, not just yet.
“We’ve been having slow starts,” James said. “But it’s not how we start. It’s how we finish.”
The last time Orlando (18-52) and the Heat met, Miami came away with a narrow 97-96 victory on March 6.
