Mike Miller Connects for 32, LeBron James Adds 38

Mike Miller broke out of a season-long slump in a big way last night. More via SLAMonline Scoreboard and ESPN: “ Mike Miller came into Saturday with exactly zero points at home this season. He now has 32. Getting his long-awaited Miami breakout game, Miller scored 22 points in the second quarter alone, helping the Heat beat the Toronto Raptors 120-103 to snap a four-game slide. LeBron James finished with 38 points and 11 rebounds for Miami, which played without Dwyane Wade (migraine) and Chris Bosh (left ankle sprain). James Jonesscored 15 and Eddie House added 13 for the Heat, who made 16 3-pointers. ‘I got it going a little bit,’ Miller said. ‘Which is fun. … Obviously, I’ve shot a lot of basketballs in my day, and I always say confidence ain’t going to be an issue. I’m going to miss. I’m going to make. But as long as you stick with it, you’re getting opportunities. Guys found me in the second quarter, I got some opportunities, and I made them.’”

    Spo is phasing out Arroyo!

    Mike Miller is a bum. This can not be expected every night. However Erik Dampier is capable of averaging 30 a night if Spo would just up his minutes.

    Honestly, last night was the best game I’ve seen the Miami Heat play all year. Hands down. There bench, which I previously considered one of the absolute weakest in the league was absolutely manhandling Toronto’s starting five….and of course there is that Lebron fellow. If Mike can really get back to form like last night, the sky is the limit for this squad. Mike Miller is a guy who will shoot 40% from the arc no matter the volume when he’s healthy. He can be Ringo

    I agree with Fboy. Dampier is a big hot stud.

    Fboy is a complete IDIOT. It’s not expected, it was just an article about his breakout game you moron. Dampier?! HAHAHAHAHAHA…please give your mother back whatever you are smoking on a Sunday as the day he averages 30 is the day hell freezes over douche.

  • CheeseWhiz

    …but it was against the raptors

  • greg

    thank you, sum1 has sense^^^^^ calderon got dropped by a jab step and derozan isnt much better, its no wonder they killed the raptors

  • tavoris

    Kamla-most NBA benches can manhandle the Raptors starting 5.

    Good for MM…I’m sure he just doubled his season point total

  • tavoris

    well, he tripled hsi season point total last nite

  • Epic Win

    Raptors aren’t a very good team.

    this is great for the miami heat.

    Kobe’s 81 point game wasnt impressive because it came against the Raptors. See how that sounds?

    I wondered when their THIRD superstar was going to find some form.

  • youngmuggsy

    Dampier is the dominant big man of this era. He runs the floor like Robinson, defends and rebounds like Russell and has a Hakeem-esque post game. Truly a legendary player and a first ballot hall of famer when he breaks out hearts and decides to call it a career.

    Actually this ones better – Mike Millers 32 pt outing for the Heatles is like when they ‘let’ Ringo Star sing Yellow Submarine and it actually worked…

  • bashmo

    looool youngmugsy made me laughhhhh

  • http://slamonline BossTerry

    Cosign Hossy.. Miller isnt a bum, solid vetern who wont ever be an all star, but will contribute..

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    The Raptors play better, I mean A LOT better, with Davis and Johnson in the front court. Bargnani still can’t rebound the basketball..
