08:06 AM ET 11.13 | Miami went to LeBron James late and often, leading to a season-high 38 points and a nail-biting win aided by key misses from Jeremy Lin and James Harden. Observations from Monday night's 113-110 victory over the Houston Rockets at the Toyota Center: For what it's worth, a source said during Monday's game that Heat have moved to top of Kenyon Martin's wish list. Yes, he would help. Because LeBron could use some help after putting in the work he put in Monday, with 32 points in the second half and 16 in the fourth quarter. ... [Chris Bosh] stood tall when he had to. Including at the line afterward. James Harden vs. the Heat? It never ends well, does it? As for Monday's game: It's come down to whether LeBron James can make 3-pointers?

What a stat line. 38 points, 10 rebounds, 6 assists, and NO TURNOVERS. Hit 14 of 26 shots and 5 of 8 from 3. The guy is just incredible. Best of all time.

Hey long time, why he could not post these numbers here in CLE?

Didnt he win MVP in CLE? Also lead them to the best record in the league a few times? Thats pretty impressive how he took a team full of bums to the finals in 07 too...smh

Two 66 game seasons in a row during his last two seasons was extremely impressive. Most teams just want to hit 50 wins and LBJ's teams hit 66 twice. Considering the Bulls 72 win season is the gold standard winning 66 is even more impressive.

Pretty much..I was never a Lebron fan until the world started to "hate" the guy. I couldnt understand why so much venom (and still is) towards a young man at the top of his profession who took LESS money to live in a better city and play for titles....sounds like the best move to me *shrugs*

My take on this is that Lebron had the ability to post those numbers here in CLE but he did not want to. It wasn't the supporting cast but rather Lebron was just mature enough to know that was needed of him. Of course, having 2 other allstars on the same dang team would help. That would help any other allstar player. I honestly believe Lebron needed that first year with the Heat to humiliate him and get him more humbled and grounded. The results all showed the following year. Now Lebron can finally achieve his "greatness" etc.

how can they afford anyone at this point or does the cap not apply to the "super teams"

Looks like Ray isn't getting the same minutes in Miami (several minutes per games less) as he got when in Boston. Hey Ray-Ray! how's the stats sheet look now? Minutes down, PPG down, 3 pt % down. How's that respect thing doing?

James was the difference though and Miami beat Houston for the sixth straight time

Ray will have his minutes is still early in the season

Lin meanwhile endured another humbling moment against the Heat Last year his amazing run with the New York Knicks hit a detour in Miami where he went 1 for 11 from the field and coughed up eight turnovers
