Heat Vs. 76ers Final Score: Dwyane Wade, LeBron James Lead Miami To 100-94 Win

The Miami Heat entered the fourth quarter of Thursday night's NBA playoff game with the Philadelphia 76ers down by two, but quickly went on a run to pull ahead of, and pull away from, the Sixers. A quick spurt to open the quarter saw Miami seize control, thanks to the efforts of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, who each finished with a double-double on the night. With James and Wade firing, and Chris Bosh playing a complimentary role, Miami had enough in the tank to finish off the Sixers, 100-94 , and take a 3-0 series lead.

Dwyane Wade led the way with 32 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists. James also had a double-double, finishing with 24 points and a team-high 15 rebounds. Chris Bosh added 19 points and the three were joined in double-figures by Zydrunas Ilgauskas, who had 10 points . Miami went with a short rotation, using only Joel Anthony, James Jones and Mario Chalmers off the bench.

Elton Brand scored a team-high 21 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for Philadelphia in the loss. Jrue Holiday had 20 points and eight rebounds, with Lou Williams adding another 15 points off the bench. Andre Iguodala had a double-double with 10 points and 10 assists.

Miami is one game away from putting the series away with a 3-0 lead. The Heat and Sixers get back at it again on Sunday in Philadelphia.
