“SUPERFRIENDS” LEAD THE WAY FOR MIAMI TO BEAT PHILLY
Mon, 18 Apr 2011 02:47 PM EDT

Chris Bosh played assertively in his playoff first appearance with the Miami and led his team with 25 points. However, Bosh got help from his “Superfriends” as LeBron James contributed with 21 points and 14 rebounds, and D-Wade scored five of his 17 points in the final minute as the Heat stopped a big Philadelphia comeback try and beat them 97-89 in the opener of their Eastern Conference first round series. The Heat showcased their strategy for playoff games and it relies offensively on their All-Star trio from dusk till dawn.

Thaddeus Young had 20 points and grabbed 11 boards for the 76ers, while point guard Jrue Holiday added 19 and Elton Brand finished with 17. On the Heat’s side: Wade, Bosh and James all were held under 50 percent shooting and Miami won anyway, in large part because the Heat outrebounding the Sixers 52-39 and free throws. Basketball scores.

After struggling in the first quarter, the Heat woke up on offense and cooled the 76ers’ 60% shooting in the first quarter. The game was a total battle for grabbing rebounds and that helped the Heat succeed after the 1st quarter, and Miami dominated the battle under the glass during the rest of the game. Basketball odds.

“We’ll take this first win,” said Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, whose team has won 16 of its past 19 games overall. “Hopefully who we’ve been the last few weeks will be more who we’ll be the rest of the series, particularly offensively. We were not very efficient tonight though.”

Udonis Haslem was inactive for the Heat with a foot injury, though there is hope he will make a comeback these playoffs after being sidelined since the start of the season. Basketball spreads.
