The Miami Heat has been on the roll, down hill, but have finally snapped their 5-game losing streak as they put a stop to the raging force that is the Los Angeles Lakers who have yet to avenge their two losses.

Miami lost 4 consecutive games at home, the last time they won was against the Washington Wizards in February 25, then the Heat won in dramatic fashion last night with 94-88.

You could’t squeeze in your credit between the players, as the game boasted 18 deadlocks and 16 lead changes. The game wasn’t decided until it reached the final minute. Thanks to Wade’s “D”, Bryant’s drive to the basket was deflected in an attempt to gain a 2-point lead. Wade quickly passed the stolen ball for LeBron James’ dunk. Add a lay up from D, and the Heat had a four point lead that assured the Miami fans they wouldn’t be seeing another failed attempt from King James at the closing of the game.

Wade ended with 20 points on 9-of -23 shooting, scoring eight points in the fourth quarter. James had an all around game with 19 points on 7-of-17 shooting to go along with eight rebounds and nine assists. And “the quiet one”, Chris Bosh led with 24 points on 10-of-17 shooting from the field, grabbing nine rebounds.

The “Xbox” style seems to work for Miami whenever they go up against the Lakers. *winks*
