Bosh's 20, Wade's bounce-back lead Heat over Mavericks 93-90
DALLAS (AP) Chris Bosh scored 20 points, Dwyane Wade bounced back with 18 after matching the worst shooting half of his career and the Miami Heat beat the Dallas Mavericks 93-90 Wednesday night.
Luol Deng finished with 15 points, including his only 3-pointer for a 92-87 lead with 1:04 remaining. The Heat improved to 9-1 against the Mavericks with their fourth sweep in five seasons since losing to Dallas in the 2011 NBA Finals.
Wade scored 16 points in the second half after going 1 of 11 before halftime, his first points coming with just 48 seconds left in the second quarter.
Dirk Nowitzki also had a rough first half, but came back with 20 of his 28 points after halftime to lead Dallas, which played without Deron Williams after he injured his right hip in a collision two nights earlier in Atlanta.
