Warriors vs. Heat final score: LeBron James makes history as Miami cruises, 92-75

USA TODAY Sports

Like the rest of the NBA, the Warriors sat and watched LeBron James make history as the Heat made things look easy in the Bay Area.

LeBron James made history, and the Golden State Warriors were history, as the Miami Heat prevailed in a rout, 92-75, on Wednesday night at Oracle Arena.

James became the youngest player to reach 20,000 career points when a pull-up jumper in the lane caught both David Lee and Klay Thompson off guard and vaulted the 28-year-old yet again into the annals of NBA history.

He finished with 25 points on 11-of-20 from the field and 10 assists and seven rebounds. Dwyane Wade and Mario Chalmers added 15 apiece.

Miami (25-12) held the Warriors (23-14) to just 38 points in the first half on 37.5 percent shooting, including just 1-for-6 from the three-point line. The Warriors turned the ball over 13 times in the half and never managed to recover.

The Heat were dominant in transition from the onset, scoring 22 fast break points. Their athleticism translated to the defensive end where they held the Warriors to 36.2 percent from the field.

Miami will head down south to take on the Los Angeles Lakers in a marquee game on Thursday night, and the Warriors will travel to take on the San Antonio Spurs in a bounce-back effort.
