LeBron James LeBron still finds ways to accomplish historic feats on his nights off. The Heat catalyst was named Eastern Conference Player of the Month for the fifth consecutive month, becoming the first player to do so that many times in the same season. LeBron sat out a third straight game, but managed to get a 25-minute pregame workout in as he recovers from a hamstring strain. Grade: Incomplete
Dwyane Wade Wade also missed his third straight game as he deals with a sore right knee and ankle. He could also miss Saturday's home game against the Philadelphia 76ers as the Heat complete a weekend back-to-back set. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra has said Wade continues to make progress in his recovery, but that the team also doesn't plan to rush the process with two weeks left before the playoffs. Grade: Incomplete
Chris Bosh 6-14 FG | 5-6 FT | 8 REB | 6 AST | 18 PTS | +2 Eventually, Bosh will be able to join LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in Spoelstra's end-of-season maintenance program. But for now, Bosh is trying to make the most of his feature opportunities. The Heat didn't need much from Bosh on Friday, but he was active on the boards and provided direction on both ends to lead shorthanded Miami to its second win in the past three games.
Mike Miller 9-15 FG | 1-2 FT | 5 REB | 4 AST | 26 PTS | +6 When Miller plays, he's got the green light from the coaching staff to fire off as many shots as possible. The last time Miller was this hot, he was torching Oklahoma City in Game 5 as the Heat clinched the NBA Finals last June. He got off to a hot start for the second straight game and had his best scoring output of the season. Miller is 15-of-25 from 3-point range over his past three games.
Charlotte Bobcats Despite 20-plus Heat turnovers, the league-worst Bobcats couldn't get much going. They shot 31.8 percent from the field and fell to 18-58 on the season. If there's a bright spot, it's the steady development of rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and second-year guard Kemba Walker. Kidd-Gilchrist had a double-double Friday, and Walker is making a quiet bid for most improved player recognition.
59: The Heat are tied for the second-most wins in franchise history and are two victories shy of matching the mark set by the 1996-97 Miami team that finished 61-21.
