This was more than a victory, even though that's what the Miami Heat needed most. No, Wednesday night's 92-75 victory over the Golden State Warriors at Oracle Arena was more a coronation. It was the night LeBron James became the youngest player in NBA history to reach 20,000 points. And it was the night James reached 5,000 assists, making him only the 12th player in league history to reach 20,000 points, 5,000 assists and 5,000 rebounds. At times, it appeared as if James accumulated those totals in Wednesday's game alone, as the Heat got a much needed rout after entering 8-9 on the road this season and 1-3 in the first four games of this six-game trip. "It was special," coach Erik Spoelstra said, as he pointed toward the locker room. "We took a moment in there together, a big-time moment."
