MIAMI, April 13 (UPI) -- LeBron James helped Miami jump to a quick start Friday and the Heat coasted to a 105-82 decision over Charlotte.
Miami took a 14-point lead after one period and the Bobcats could never make a run while losing for the 51st time in 58 games and for the 15th time in a row. The Heat moved within 3 1/2 games of Chicago for the best record in the Eastern Conference.
Miami's Dwyane Wade sat out with a sore ankle, but the Heat shot 51 percent from the field and hit 15-of-17 from the foul line while posting the easy victory. Miami bounced back from an overtime loss to Chicago Thursday.
