MIAMI (CBS4) – The Memphis Grizzlies cant take the Heat, and Saturday’s game proved that when they melted on the court, losing to Miami 188-85.

It was an easy win for Miami as they set the pace early. Dwyane Wade had 28 points and nine assists, LeBron James scored 27 points while taking the fourth quarter off.

Wade also had five blocks, four of them in a 55-second span of the opening quarter.

The 33-point victory margin was Miami’s largest this season.

Chris Bosh scored 18 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for the Heat, who closed within 2 1/2 games of Boston for the top spot in the Eastern Conference. Mike Bibby added 17 for Miami on a 5-for-5 effort from 3-point range.

O.J. Mayo scored 19 for Memphis, which dropped its second straight. The Grizzlies’ lead over Phoenix for the No. 8 spot in the Western Conference is now just one game, and the Suns have one less loss.
