PHILADELPHIA _ Chris Bosh had 30 points and eight rebounds to lead the Miami Heat past the Philadelphia 76ers 114-96 on Saturday night.

Mario Chalmers scored 18 points and Dwyane Wade had nine points and 10 assists to help the Heat to their second win in two games.

Tony Wroten had 21 points and 10 assists for the Sixers and Brandon Davies scored 18 points for the winless Sixers.

Expected to challenge the 82-game mark for worst record in NBA history, the Sixers are already 0-3 and could add to that winless streak with three more home games this week.

The Sixers gamely tried to keep up with the Eastern Conference champions and only trailed 87-83 at the end of the third quarter.

But the Heat had too much offensive power inside and out to overwhelm the Sixers.
