    LeBron James scored 32 points and the Miami Heat pulled away again to beat the feisty Charlotte Bobcats, 101-97, in Game 2 of their first-round Eastern Conference playoff series on Wednesday. The Heat took a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series heading into Saturday's Game 3 in Charlotte, but not without a little more resistance than they might have expected from the only current NBA franchise without a postseason win. Chris Bosh's 3-pointer put the stops on a 10-0 Bobcats run in the fourth quarter and Dwyane Wade came up with a steal near the sideline in the final seconds with the Heat clinging to a three-point lead, hitting a foul shot at the other end to seal the win. Bosh added 20 points and Wade scored 15. The three stars combined to score 19 of Miami's 22 points in the fourth quarter. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist led Charlotte with 22 points and 10 rebounds and Al Jefferson scored 18 with 13 boards despite suffering a plantar fascia strain in his left foot in Game 1.
