Miami's woes continued last night, as the Heat were dismantled by Philly, 101-84. In the second game following the trade of Shaquille O'Neal to Phoenix for Shawn Marion and Marcus Banks, Miami was forced to once again try to survive without their new acquisitions, the AP reports. The Heat have netted one win in their past 22 contests.
By contrast, the 19-win 76ers look reinvigorated, having taken four of their past six. Philly's Andre Iguodala put up 25, and Andre Miller 21 against Miami, whose roster was down to eight players following an injury to Alexander Johnson in the second. Dwayne Wade posted 19 for the Heat, who despite ugly play, kept it close for three periods.
