Recap


HEAT 104, KNICKS 94: Dwyane Wade led the way with 25 points and LeBron James had another big game as host Miami took a 2-0 lead over New York.

James collected 19 points, seven rebounds and nine assists and Chris Bosh added 21 points for the Heat, who led the Eastern Conference with a 28-5 home record during the regular season and have been in complete control at AmericanAirlines Arena through the first two games of the playoffs.

Carmelo Anthony, who was held to 11 points in Game 1, came back to score 30 points on 12-of-26 shooting in Game 2 but New York still struggled on the defensive end.

Without Iman Shumpert - who tore his anterior cruciate ligament in Game 1 - around to guard him, Wade took over in the first half, shooting 8 for 10 and scoring 19 points before the break. Miami took a 53-47 lead into the half.

James highlighted a 9-2 run early in the third quarter by hitting a pair of shots in the lane while drawing fouls. He failed to convert either for three-point plays but still pushed the lead to double figures.

The lead grew to as much as 92-77 with 5:20 left, when Bosh hit a 3-pointer as the shot clock was winding down.

The Knicks matched an NBA record with their 12th straight playoff loss.
