Line of the Night

Dwyane Wade (Miami Heat): 31 PTS, 5 REB, 5 AST, 2 STL, 1 BLK, 12-28 FG

D-Wade got the best of his former Heat teammate yesterday with a game-high 31 points, 24 of them coming in the first half, topping the Cavs on Christmas Day. Wade was just 2 for 12 after the half as Miami's lead slipped, but the Heat put the foot on the gas pedal and pulled away from Cleveland. Jimmy Butler also had a fine performance last night in a rout of the LA Lakers.
