Lebron Scores 32, Miami Heat Level Pelicans 107-88



It’s cold isn’t it?  The cold phenomenon that has hit the country has finally made its way to South Florida and basketball is suffering from the consequences of this wild weather. The New Orleans Pelicans were stuck in Indiana on Monday due to the bad weather (9 degrees Fahrenheit) and they were desperately trying to make it to the Heat’s house (no pun intended) for Tuesdays game after fearing that the mat cup might have to be rescheduled due to the poor weather conditions. Fortunately that didn’t happen, which was good for us and bad for them.

From tip off, the star for the Pelicans Anthony “The Brow” Davis stuck out and is reaffirming that he’s one of the most unique players we’ve seen in a while.  The 20-year-old star has been tearing it up and delivering on all the predictions of his developing dominance in the basketball court. Davis showed that his skills set are a tough matchup for anyone in this league.  Anthony Davis is 6-10 with a 7-3 wingspan, can handle the ball and has a very effective midrange game. Davis finished with 22 points, 12 rebounds and 2 blocks. Davis was basically the only bright spot out of the Pelicans who got worked in the second half as the Heat started forcing turnovers.

The Heat by contrast have a handful of pretty decent performances from their players. Chris “Birdman” Andersen turned in his best effort of the season with a season high 15 points, 7 rebounds, a block and a steal. Wade who was doubtful before the game, turned in an impressive all around game with 22 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists. Finally, LeBron anchored the team with his 32 points, 5 assists and 2 steals.

With the manhandling of the Pelicans, the Heat have now improved to a 16-3 record at home and currently have a three-way tie (Spurs, OKC) for the second best record in the NBA.

NEXT GAME:  Thursday the 9th of January vs the Knicks on TNT. Tip-Off tips off 8:00PM
