Temp Check: Heat 113, 76ers 92
By Michael Wallace
MIAMI - The Heat continued their hot start to a five-game homestand by sprinting past the Philadelphia 76ers 113-92 Saturday at AmericanAirlines Arena to move to 3-0 since returning from a Western Conference trip with three consecutive losses.
It was one of the most complete performances of the season for Miami. The Heat got a combined 58 points, 16 rebounds, 10 assists and five blocks from Chris Bosh and LeBron James - and a lot of help from a supporting cast that continues to step up in the absence of guard Dwyane Wade, who missed his third straight game and is out indefinitely with a sprained right ankle.
