Heat Notch 9th Straight Win in Portland

Fresh off its All-Star break, the Heat beat the Trail Blazers 107-93

The Miami Heat trounced the Portland Trail Blazers Thursday night 107-93, bringing their winning streak to nine games.

Sans Chris Bosh, who had a death in the family, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade led the Heat in their first game since the All-Star break.

LeBron James had 38 points and 11 rebounds, and Dwyane Wade added 33 points and 10 assists.

The Heat now stand at 28-7 — their best 35-game start in franchise history.

The game was the Heat's first since the All-Star break. The Heat hadn't played since a 102-88 victory at home over the New York Knicks last Thursday.

LaMarcus Aldridge had 20 points for the Blazers, who came into the game from a loss to Denver.
