Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra has admitted that his players were anxious to get going as they beat the Charlotte Bobcats 99-88 in their first playoff encounter on Sunday.

LeBron James was the standout performer at the American Airlines Arena, as he notched 27 points and nine rebounds to help push the Heat over the line.

"We were flat to start but I think our guys were just anxious to get started, to finally start the postseason games," Spoelstra told reporters after the match.

"We started to get more into our groove at the end of the first quarter."

The sides will meet again for Game Two on Wednesday.
