Heat extend streak, one win away from clinching playoffs

MINNEAPOLIS (NBA.com exclusive) -- Minnesota has not had any reasonable hopes of playing in the postseason for a long time. But Miami did not want to look past this game.

The last time they met, Dwyane Wade was injured. Not surprisingly, Wade's absence had a substantial effect as Miami only scored 15 points in the first quarter and ended up losing 91-88.

Dwayne Wade scored 26 points as Miami took care of business and defeated Minnesota 97-84. The victory brings them within a game of clinching a playoff spot.

Minnesota's victory over the Heat on February 23 snapped Minnesota's six game losing streak, but they went on to lose their next 16 games -- a streak that tied an 18-year-old franchise record.

Miami's eight game winning streak is their longest since winning nine in a row from Feb. 28-March 16, 2007.

Wade's has averaged nearly 32 points per game in his previous five games against Minnesota, but Coach Spoelstra emphasized his team's defense. Miami has held their opponents to 82.7 points per game in their current winning streak.

"Overall, our (defensive) numbers are much better, much more consistent," Spoelstra said. "That's giving us a chance to win. We've said for that last couple months that if we defend with that type of urgency and if we can control the ball and not turn ir over, we'll have a chance to win every night."

Minnesota led by as much as seven in the first quarter, but after sitting on the bench for the first six minutes of the second quarter, Wade scored 13 of his 26 points and keyed a 20-6 run which gave Miami a 53-44 lead at halftime.

Miami extended their lead to 21 with a 16-4 run to open the second half until Minnesota responded with a 21-6 run of their own to cut Miami's lead to six.

"(Minnesota) provided a fight, especially there in the third and fourth quarter," Dwyane Wade said. "We relaxed a bit and didn't play as aggressive. We got a lot of fouls and missed a lot of shots from the seven minute mark of the third quarter up until the nine minute mark of the fourth quarter."

Wade and Udonis Haslem were key in turning the tide in the fourth quarter.

"Our captains (Wade and Haslem) were terrific," Spoelstra said. "Udonis (Haslem) got 17 rebounds and he's pretty banged up, not at all near 100 percent with his health. And Dwyane once again stepped up offensively."

Still Spoelstra was not thrilled that Miami made the game interesting in the final quarter.

"We had a chance to really create some separation in the third quarter when we went up 21," Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said. "But out killer instinct was not was it needs to be. ... We missed free throws and we fouled them. We let them put points on the board within really doing anything. And you can't do that if you're trying to develop that killer instinct."

Minnesota not only lost the game, they lost their starting center Darko Milicic, to an apparent jaw injury.

"Obviously we had some lapses out there, but the majority of the game I was very pleased with," Kurt Rambis said. "Losing Darko hurt; he had such an imposing presence inside defensively, so him not coming back in the second half hurt us."

Minnesota needs one more win to guarantee it won't match the franchise's worst season, set in 1991-92.
