Heat notch 18th straight despite LeBron season low
MANILA, Philippines -- Despite a season-low output from reigning MVP LeBron James, the Miami Heat still streaked to its 18th straight win, bamboozling the Indiana Pacers, 105-91, at the American Airlines Arena in Miami.
Mario Chalmers stepped up big for the Heat and put up 26 points off five triples to go with seven rebounds and two steals for Miami, who stopped a two-game skid to the Pacers.
Chris Bosh posted 24 markers and three blocks and Dwyane Wade added 23 points and six steals as the Heat made 50% of their shots from beyond the arc to improve to 47-14.
James had just 13 points -- his lowest output of the season -- but hauled down six boards and issued seven assists while Ray Allen had 11 markers.
Indiana got 26 points from David West but the Pacers could not overcome a slow start and finished the game shooting 41.3% from the field while allowing the Heat to make 55.9% of their shots. - Rappler.com
