A postgame look at the Miami Heat

A look at the Miami Heat after their 96-70 win over the Orlando Magic on Friday night:

Record: 2-1.

The Big 3: Dwyane Wade scored 26 points, LeBron James added 15 points, seven assists and six rebounds, and Chris Bosh scored 11. Together, they alone outscored Orlando's entire starting lineup 52-37.

Noteworthy: James played without the compression sleeve that has helped protect his right elbow, the one that gave him so many problems in last season's playoffs.

Quotable: "They didn't collude to do anything. They decided to use their free agency and try to win." — NBA Commissioner David Stern, on how James, Wade and Bosh teamed up in Miami.

Next up: Miami visits New Jersey on Sunday.
