Recap

Wade, Heat continue road trip with solid win over Rockets


By Michael Murphy, for NBA.com

HOUSTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- For the Miami Heat, business is good.

Miami coach Erik Spoelstra keeps reminding his players that their current swing through the West is nothing more than a business trip, and his players apparently have been paying attention.

They certainly took care of business Friday night at Toyota Center, riding a brilliant all-around performance by Dwyane Wade to a 115-106 victory, snapping the Rockets' eight-game home winning streak. With the win, their second straight, the Heat have guaranteed at least a split of the six-game trip, which ends Saturday in Oklahoma City.

"That was a very mature, business-like win," Spoelstra said. "It was pretty simple from my point of view -- we competed and we played hard against one of the hardest-playing teams in the league. We were able to match their motor, and offensively it was pretty simple -- move the ball and find the open guy.

"It's still a business trip. We cannot relax."

That doesn't appear likely, especially with Wade so locked in.

Wade scored 37 points on 15-of-24 shooting, numbers that are even more impressive considering he is nursing a tender right wrist. For Wade, it was another highly efficient game, coming on the heels of his 35-point night against Golden State, in which he made 10-of-15 shots.

"I've been shooting it pretty decently for a little stretch here," Wade said. "I've been really working on my shot a lot, especially before games, mixing it up so I'm more confident when the game starts. I'm just hitting shots now."

Actually, he's doing a little bit of everything.

After scoring 23 first-half points, Wade settled into the role of facilitator in the second half, finishing with eight assists.

"The reason Dwyane didn't get 40 [points] is because he stopped shooting," said Shane Battier, against whom Wade was matched for much of the night. "He could have had 50 tonight if he wanted."

Yep, the Rockets may like to bill themselves as the team without a superstar, the everymen of the NBA, but Wade showed them -- and the 16,270 in attendance -- exactly what they are missing.

Wade was transcendent, seeming to float above the relative rabble the Rockets were putting on the floor. He overpowered smaller defenders and took them to the rim for dunks and short flip shots. When he found a taller, longer opponent, like the 6-foot-8 Battier, Wade used his quickness to get clear looks and flick in effortless jumpers.

"Battier is a good defender," Wade said. "You're going to have to make shots on him. He's not going to let you beat him with any trickery, shot fakes or anything like that. You're going to have to make shots on him, and fortunately I was able to do that tonight."

Much to the chagrin of Houston coach Rick Adelman, who had been pointing towards the Rockets' lengthy homestand as a chance to put some wins together and establish themselves as true playoff contenders in the West.

But after building a 10-point lead in the first quarter, Adelman watched his offense crater and Wade seize control of the game. The Heat, fueled by an 18-3 surge, overtook the Rockets in the second quarter and never looked back.

"I'm just really disappointed with our effort," Adelman said. "I don't know what it was. In the first half we let them do whatever they wanted to do. We were reacting. They had us on our heels. We had a game plan, but a game plan means nothing if you don't put together the energy and understanding of what you're trying to do.

"We didn't do that."

While Wade did most of the heavy lifting, he did have help, and plenty of it.

Jermaine O'Neal, who at times has been frustrated with his role in the offense, had a solid all-around game, finishing with 16 points, 13 rebounds and four blocks.

Former Rocket Rafer Alston added 17 points, double his average, on 7-of-10 shooting, and played outstanding defense on Houston's uber-quick point guard, Aaron Brooks.

One game removed from a career-best 43-point outburst, Brooks was limited to 14 points on 5-of-12 shooting. The Heat took a physical approach to Brooks, playing a debilitating bump-and-grind defense that kept the slender point guard out of the paint for much of the night. And with Trevor Ariza again struggling with his shot (15 points, but 5-of-14 shooting), the Rockets needed more from Brooks.

"I think [Alston] is one of the best pick-and-roll defenders in this league," Spoelstra said. "There was good effort from a lot of guys defensively... but Rafer is very good on those situations. If we didn't have that, Brooks probably would have had a big game."

For Alston, Friday marked his best offensive performance since being rescued from New Jersey five games ago.

"I take nothing but in-the-flow shots. Good shots," Alston said. "Tonight I was making them. That's what this league is all about. It's a make-or-miss league. But I tried to do everything else. I tried to defend, rebound, assist the ball and keep the turnovers down. I think we did good job of that."
