UNITED STATES—On Sunday, March 24, the Miami Heat extended their win streak to 26 games without Dwayne Wade. The Heat defeated the Charlotte Bobcats. Lebron James almost posted a triple-double with 32 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds to lead Miami to the 109-77 win. Chris Bosh and Norris Cole each scored 15 points without Dwayne Wade in the line up, because of soreness in his left knee. Ray Allen also posted 14 points for Miami.
