Wade's return, LeBron's jumper lift Heat over Magic 101-99--South Florida Sun Sentinel
Even with Wade back after missing two games due to ongoing knee issues, the first quarter featured the rare full second unit for Heat, with Andersen, Beasley, Rashard Lewis, Ray Allen and Norris Cole together late in the period, even without foul trouble for any of the Big Three.

Not only did the Heat outscore the Magic 30-22 in the fourth quarter of Saturday's 101-99 victory, but point guard Norris Cole played the entire period, helping limit Magic point guard Jameer Nelson to two points and one assist over the 12 minutes.

"It's my job, on this team, defender," Cole said. "And that's one of the skill sets that I bring to the table. So it's great to be in there when it really matters."

Cole said he views himself as more than a specialist against similar quick guards.

"I'm always ready," he said. "I always look at it like that whenever we go against anybody, quick or not, I feel like I can defend." . . .
