MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — LeBron James had 21 points, eight assists and 14 boards for his first double-digit rebounding game of the season, leading the Miami Heat to a 103-82 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday night.
Dwyane Wade had 19 points and five rebounds in his return from a two-game absence and the Heat controlled the glass until garbage time after getting hammered on the boards by Detroit and Chicago in consecutive losses. James’ 14 boards were his most in a Heat uniform in a regular-season game.
Kevin Martin scored 19 points for the Timberwolves. But they sorely missed Kevin Love, who was with his family following the death of his grandmother on Wednesday night.
