Associated Press

MIAMI -- Chris Bosh scored 21 points on 7-for-8 shooting, LeBron James scored nine and the two-time defending champion Miami Heat opened the preseason with a 92-87 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Monday night.

Roger Mason Jr. scored 14 points and Rashard Lewis added 11 for the Heat, who had what once was 22-point lead trimmed to two in the final seconds but never trailed.

Miami played without Dwyane Wade, Udonis Haslem, Chris Andersen, Michael Beasley and Greg Oden.

Mike Scott led the Hawks with 13 points. Paul Millsap added 12, Al Horford had 10 points and nine rebounds and DeMarre Carroll scored 10.

Atlanta lost forward Gustavo Ayon late in the first quarter with a right shoulder injury. The Hawks said he would be evaluated again Tuesday.

Bosh had 19 points in 14 first-half minutes, helping Miami to a 49-30 lead at the break.
