LeBron James led the Miami Heat with 21 points, seven assists and six rebounds in just 29 minutes as the Heat rolled to a 120-92 victory over the Orlando Magic Wednesday night.

Magic guard Arron Afflalo led all scorers with 30 points.

The Heat raced out to a 16-0 lead, but the young Magic showed great resolve, cutting the deficit to three before the opening quarter came to a close. Afflalo led the Magic comeback by scoring 20 of his 30 points in the first half.

That, however, wasn’t nearly enough as the Heat took over in the second half, outscoring the Magic 36-22 in the third quarter and 30-21 in the final quarter (it could have been worse if the Magic didn’t add a few garbage time buckets).

If you like good shooting, you’d have enjoyed this game. Each team hit 15 three-pointers. In fact, the Magic made more three-pointers than two-pointers (14). The Heat went 29-of-32 from the free throw line while the Magic went 19-of-21 from the charity stripe.

Other than that, the Heat dominated in just about every other way, shooting 51.4% from the field to the Magic’s 40.8%, grabbing 40 rebounds to the Magic’s 25 and scoring 38 points in the paint to the Magic’s 20.

Magic rookie Victor Oladipo made his first start. There was both good (20 points) and bad (eight turnovers).

These two teams will meet again Saturday night in Miami.
