Bobcats Fall In Miami

The Miami Heat received strong support from their bench in a 110-90 rout of Charlotte.

Ricky Davis equaled his season high with 23 points and Jason Williams added 11 points and eight assists. Both players were held out of the starting lineup for the first time this season as coach Pat Riley tried to revive a team that improved to 4-and-10.

Rookie reserve Daequan Cook added a season-high 19 points while missing only two shots, one reason why the Heat hit a season-high 58 percent from the field.

Dwyane Wade scored 13 points in 26 minutes, while Shaquille O'Neal added 15 in 22 minutes.

Gerald Wallace scored 16 points for the Bobcats after missing their previous game with a strained calf.

Charlotte had dropped four in a row.
