LeBron James was soundly booed in his return to Cleveland, but poured in 38 points in just three quarters of action as the Heat humbled the Cavaliers last night 118-to-90. James bolted Cleveland as a free agent to sign with Miami after seven seasons with the Cavaliers
It was probably the best all-around team game this season for the new look Heat, who have underachieved so far with their big three of James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh. Wade had 22 last night with 15 for Bosh as Miami improved to 12-and-8.
The Pistons, meanwhile, will try to snap their 3-game losing streak when they play the Magic tonight at the Palace.
