("Saturday December 15, 2012," 2012) Commenting about the strong performance from the team's three superstars is Paul (2012) who observed, "For the Heat (15-6), it was the perfect remedy after losing three of the past five games. It was also their chance for redemption, after falling to the Wizards (3-18) 105-101 on Dec. 4 in Washington. LeBron James led the Heat with 23 points, 10 rebounds and five assists while Dwyane Wade added 13 points and Chris Bosh had 12. The Heat led for most of the way behind strong play from their three superstars and a solid defensive effort. It was one of the few times they were able to produce a balanced scoring effort. Despite James leading the way again, they had four starters score in double-figures. Miami took control in the early stages of the game and never trailed. A jumper by Wade made it 20-7 with 4:30 left in the first quarter." ("Saturday December 15, 2012," 2012)
