MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Dwyane Wade scored 32 points, LeBron James added 27 points, 10 assists and six rebounds, and the Miami Heat turned a tight game into a rout in the third quarter of a 111-92 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night.
Chris Bosh added 24 points and 11 rebounds for the Heat, who trailed at halftime but opened the third quarter with a staggering 25-1 run to take control. Miami reduced its magic number for clinching the Southeast Division to one, with Orlando’s victory over Charlotte on Friday preventing the Heat from wrapping it up.
Kevin Love had 18 points and seven rebounds for the Timberwolves, who have lost nine games in a row.
