=== Miami Heat Team Report – December 10 ===

(Sports Network) – Brian Grant scored a season-high 18 points and grabbed 10
rebounds to lead Miami to a 92-72 win over Phoenix at America Airlines Arena.

Dwyane Wade also tallied 18 points for the Heat, who snapped a three-game
losing streak. Lamar Odom posted 16 points and a career-high 17 boards while
Eddie Jones contributed 15 points for Miami, which held a commanding 51-30
edge on the backboards.

The Heat posted their largest margin of victory this season and in the process
they held the Suns to a season-low point total

Miami forward Caron Butler was back in the lineup and scored seven points. He
had undergone arthroscopic surgery on his left knee October 4 and returned to
the team on November 8, but then re-injured the knee in a November 21 game
against Golden State and had not played since.

The Heat, who improved to just 2-9 against Western Conference teams this
season, will host Memphis on Friday.
