Notebook: Heat 103, Suns 97


Mike Tulumello, for NBA.com
Posted Wed Feb 12, 2014 12:52 AM - Updated Wed Feb 12, 2014 12:52 AM

THE FACT: The Heat have won eight straight against the Suns, while also claiming six straight in Arizona.

THE LEAD: The Phoenix Suns had their NBA-best fast-break game going. Same for their deadly 3-point attack. By contrast, the Miami Heat's cast of complementary players at times had next to nothing to offer.

But in the end, the Heat had LeBron James and Chris Bosh. And that was enough for a hard-fought 103-97 Heat win Tuesday night in Arizona.

James (37 points) and Bosh (21) scored 58 of the Heat's 103. They combined to shoot 20-for-31. The other Heat players combined to go 16-for-43 for 45 points.

But those complementary players aided the Heat's defense, which was geared to slowing down the Suns sizzling guard Goran Dragic, who had scored 20-plus in seven straight.

Dragic had 15 points, nine assists and four steals but shot just 4-for-12.

Gerald Green led the Suns with 26 points on 9-for-14 shooting.

The Heat are 36-14 with one more game -- Wednesday night at Golden State -- before the All-Star break.

The Suns head to the break at 30-21. That's their best record at the break since they were 37-16 (.698) in 2007-08.

Dwyane Wade missed the game with a migraine headache. This was Wade's 14th miss in the Heat's 50 games.

QUOTABLE: "I tell you what. He's a handful. The pace and energy that he brings consistently on every single possession is admirable. You have to cover a lot of ground. Our point guards did an admirable job of keeping their bodies in front of them."
-- Heat coach Erik Spoelstra on defending Dragic

THE STAT: The Suns had won 10 straight when Green scored 20 or more.

TURNING POINT: The Heat led only 92-89 with less than 2:30 to go. Then James hit a step-back 18-footer, then came up with two steals, the second of which he finished with a thunderous slam. The result: With 1:13 left, the Heat had a 96-89 lead and the game.

QUOTABLE II: "My shoulder is feeling a lot better. I'm not having to ice it after games. My knee is feeling a lot better. My groin is feeling better. I'm feeling pretty good."
-- LeBron James

QUOTABLE III: "I'm running so fast, and I just kind of jump and figure it out from that point. I've been able to finish more than I miss. That helps."
-- LeBron James on his memorable dunks

QUOTABLE IV: "It was all about today."
-- Chris Bosh on the Heat bouncing back from a bad loss at Utah

GOOD MOVE: The Heat concentrated on Dragic, even though it meant Green sometimes got loose.

HOT: Bosh shot 8-for-11.

NOT: Markieff and Marcus Morris combined to shoot 5-for-17 for the Suns.

IN THE ARENA: The Suns drew an announced crowd of 17,927, largest of the season and a near sellout.

ROOKIE WATCH: For the second time, the Suns have recalled guard Archie Goodwin from Bakersfield of the NBA D-League. In three games, Goodwin averaged 24.3 pints on 55 percent shooting. Overall, in five games, he averaged 26.4 points while shooting 49 percent.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Markieff Morris has been in a slide. Over the last five games, the Suns big forward has shot 18-for-56 (32 percent) and averaged 9.8 points and 5.4 boards. On the season, he's averaging 12.5 points on 46 percent shooting plus 5.7 rebounds.

NOTABLE: James' 37 points was a season high for a Suns' opponent (besting his own 35 vs. the Suns in the Heat's win Nov. 25 in Miami. He also rolloed up his 18th games of the season with 30-plus points....Dragic was coming off an amazing game Saturday vs. Golden State, where he scored 34 while taking just 13 shots. According to Elias Sports Bureau, this performance was just the second in Suns' history where a player scored 34 or more points on 13 or fewer shots. He joins Gail Goodrich who scored 36 on 13 attempts (10-for-13 field goals, 16-for-18 on free throws) vs. the San Francisco Warriors on March 17, 1970.

UP NEXT: For the Heat, Wednesday @ Golden State, Tuesday @ Dallas and Thursday, Feb. 20 @ Oklahoma City. For the Suns, Tuesday @ Denver, Wednesday Feb. 19 vs. Boston and Friday, Feb. 21 vs. San Antonio.
