Heat and red-hot James scorch Knicks by 22 points

NEW YORK, (Reuters) – The sizzling hot Miami Heat  and their Big Three of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh  scorched the New York Knicks 113-91 for their 11th win in a row  Friday at Madison Square Garden.

James, who spurned New York in signing as a free agent last  summer with Miami, shrugged off hearty boos from a packed  Garden crowd on his every touch of the ball to score 32 points,  while Wade and Bosh both poured in 26.

Miami improved to 20-8 as James completed a triple-double  by adding 11 rebounds and 10 assists, while New York dropped to  16-11, scoring just 34 points in the second half.

“When we play defense we’re a really dangerous team,” James  told reporters. “Holding a very good offensive team down to 39  percent shooting was a great performance.”

James put on a dazzling show at the Broadway arena, firing  away from the perimeter, spinning to the hoop, slamming down  dunks and making an array of no-look passes for assists against  the hosts, who were overmatched after intermission.
