LeBron James played through a sore left quad again on Sunday, racking up 28 points (10-of-19 FGs, 8-of-11 FTs) with three rebounds, eight assists and one steal.
This puts to bed any lingering concerns about his sore leg. Dwyane Wade added 24 points, and Mario Chalmers scored 16 points to make up for a quiet night from Chris Bosh (seven points, four blocks). The Heat have now won 11 consecutive games. "I don't think we're trying to send a message to the rest of the league," LeBron said before today's game. "We're trying to send a message to ourselves." Whoever the message is intended for, it's being heard loud and clear.
