Heat eviscerate Mavericks

LeBron James was LeBron James in the game. - USA TODAY Sports

The game was never in question as the Heat jumped on the Mavericks, winning 110-95. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh combined for 60 points in the win.

The last time the Miami Heat played in Dallas was last December.

They jumped on the defending champion Mavericks that day, eventually winning the game 105-94 in an NBA Finals rematch to open the 2011-12 season.

Apparently, the Heat (17-6) aren't done beating down the Mavericks. A depleted Mavericks team couldn't stay on the floor with Miami as the Heat led by as many as 36 before the benches cleared and the Mavericks made an empty run late.

The game ended 110-95 in the Heat's favor.

LeBron James kept his streak of games with over 20 points going (23 to open the season), finishing with 24 points and nine rebounds on 13 shots in 31 minutes to lead the Heat. Dwyane Wade had a 13-point third quarter and finished with 19 points, six assists and five rebounds. Chris Bosh was steady in his 17-point, 7-rebound line.

Dallas (12-14), playing without Dirk Nowitzki and to a lesser extend Brendan Wright, were led by Jae Crowders' 15-point effort.

The Heat held red-hot shooting O.J Mayo to eight points on 3-of-14 shooting on the night, much of it due to stifling defense from Wade.
