The Heat’s (25-9) 16-game streak of keeping opponents under 100 pts was snapped by the Rockets (15-16), but Miami reacted to the fast pace of the 102-possession game winning 125-119 in the only game I watched last night. Very fun game to watch where Dwyane Wade had his second straight 40-point performace, scoring 45 on... Read more »
