Topic: ns following game on Monday night against Eastern Conference leader

MILWAUKEE -- Chris Bosh scored 14 points, LeBron James had 13, and the short-handed Miami Heat wrapped up their three-game trip through the Midwest with an 88-67 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. [url=]Dan Gargan Jersey[/url] . James Jones added 10 for Miami in place of star guard Dwyane Wade, sidelined a second straight game with a sore hamstring. The Heat also played without Ray Allen and Mario Chalmers. It didnt matter against the team with the NBAs worst record. Milwaukee tried to match Miamis energy, but couldnt keep with the more talented opponent -- even one without two All-Stars. Defence keyed Miamis win. The Heat led 46-29 at halftime and held the Bucks to a season low for points in a half and in a game. John Henson had 12 points and 10 rebounds for Milwaukee. On paper, this was a mismatch from the opening tip -- the two-time defending NBA champions against a young, undermanned squad that fell to 14-59 on the season. But the Heat at times played a bit disheveled, perhaps a little worn from their third straight road game and fourth in five contests. James extended his consecutive-game streak of double-digit scoring to 564, the fourth-longest run in NBA history. But James only got to 10 with about 5:16 left in the third quarter on a 3. Fresh off recording a triple-double in a 110-78 blowout win Friday night in Detroit, James had nearly as many turnovers (three) as points (four) in the first half. His two early buckets, though, came off open dunks that thrilled the crowd, a few of whom were wearing James jerseys. Miami opened the game 3-of-14 from the field. The shooting improved, and the Heat clamped down on the other end and held the Bucks to 12-of-39 shooting (30 per cent) in the first half, and 34 per cent for the game. The Heat held an opponent under 40 per cent shooting for the fourth straight game, and ended their road trip with two straight wins after losing Wednesday in Indiana. Just like Friday night, James spent the fourth quarter on the bench with a victory well in hand. The only drama in the second half when James would get to double digits in scoring. A dunk with 6 minutes left in the third gave Milwaukee a 54-38 lead. Khris Middleton missed a jumper, and James corralled the rebound before spotting up at the wing for his 3 to get to double figures. Zaza Pachulia and Udonis Haslem exchanged buckets before Pachulia missed a jumper with about 4 minutes left. James got the rebound and then threw a long outlet pass to streaking Haslem down court for a layup. James clapped, slapped his right hand on his thigh and waited down court on defence. His night was just about over. Ramon Sessions had a game-high 15 points for Milwaukee, while Toney Douglas and Rashard Lewis each added 13 for the Heat. Bothered by a sore hamstring, Wade watched in a grey suit and white sneakers in returning to the arena in which he played college ball at Marquette. NOTES: Allen, sidelined with a stomach virus, played in Milwaukee from 1996 through part of the 2002-03 season. He holds the franchise record for most 3-point field goals in a game at home with 10. ... Chalmers missed the game with a bruised quad, and Greg Oden was also sidelined by back spasms.... The Bucks have yet to win consecutive games all season. They were coming off a 108-105 win Thursday over the Lakers. [url=]Bradford Jamieson Jersey[/url] . "Weve given ourselves now a tougher task," said Carlyle after the Friday practice, the Toronto head coach notably chipper and upbeat throughout. "But the bottom line is we just have to win our share of games [and] not worry about what anybody else is doing. [url=]Brian Rowe Jersey[/url] . -- Jerry Rice Jr. [url=][/url] . Balotelli was out at dinner with his brother Enoch and came home to discover he had been burgled. The car was later found abandoned. Balotelli wrote Saturday on Twitter: "I feel empty! No emotions .NEW ORLEANS - Pelicans coach Monty Williams says All-Star forward Anthony Davis has a mild groin strain and could play again as soon as Friday night against the Los Angeles Clippers.Davis, who was hurt in the third quarter of Wednesday nights 93-85 loss to Denver, had an MRI Thursday morning. The scan revealed a grade 1 adductor strain, an injury that causes soreness from being over-stretched but which does not necessarily limit muscle function.Hes walking around, doing some stuff — nothing to break a sweat — but hes walking around normally, so well see how he feels on Friday, Williams said. If he feels up to it, were going to play him his normal minutes.Davis, who has not spoken with media since his injury, has been playing about 36 minutes per game this season. He is third in the NBA in points per game (24.3), eighth in rebounds per game (10.4) and first in blocks per game (2.9).Against Denver, he crashed to the floor late in the third quarter after a midair collision with Kenneth Faried under the basket. He remained down several minutes and then limped to the locker room with the help of team medical staff.He returned for about 8 minutes in the fourth quarter, but Williams pulled him out for most of the final minute.The only way he was going to get back on the floor is if the doctors said he wasnt going to aggravate it moree, Williams said. [url=]Omar Gonzalez Jersey[/url]. . But as I saw him getting up and down the floor, after a few minutes of playing, I didnt see the normal burst that we know A.D. brings every night.Williams said he will want to see that usual burst in pre-game warm-ups before putting Davis back in the lineup.Theres no need of putting him on the floor if he drags his leg, Williams said. I dont think that helps him at all and certainly prolongs the healing process.The Pelicans on Thursday were only 2 1/2 games out of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference with nearly half of the regular season left. They are also in the midst of what could be a pivotal stretch in which they play six of their next seven games at home, where they are 15-6.If Davis is held out against the Clippers, that would give him a minimum of four full days of rest before New Orleans following game on Monday night against Eastern Conference leader Atlanta.Generally, Williams errs on the side of giving hobbled players more rest.Ive been around for a little bit and I know when a guy really wants to play, but I also know theres a chance that if he plays and hurts himself it can hurt us going forward, Williams said. You always try to protect your guys. ... Its a tough decision. And those are the decisions I have to make to do whats best for him and our team.
