Simply put, Justise Winslow kicked things off with a spot-up three off great ball movement and never looked back. From there, the 22-year-old varied up his offensive approach with shots from the perimeter and methodical takes to the rack. Of course, Winslow also did his thing on the defensive end in both man and zone looks and guarded multiple guys throughout the night, including Wayne Ellington, Reggie Jackson and Blake Griffin. In all, Winslow led Miami with 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting and also had five boards, two assists and two steals.

WIN: 120-115 (OT)
After struggling a bit at the end of the fourth quarter, Josh Richardson certainly made amends in overtime and led Miami with nine points on 3-of-5 shooting in the extra period. And on a night where he varied up his offensive approach, it’s only fitting that his field goals in OT came off a blow-by drive, a short turnaround jumper and a catch-and-shoot trey. Of course, Richardson also hit two clutch free throws with 1.4 seconds left to essentially seal the deal. In all, the 25-year-old led the HEAT with a game-high 27 points on 11-of-21 shooting and also amassed eight boards, four assists and two blocks.

While Goran Dragić had a slow start in the first half, he absolutely cooked Detroit in the third quarter for 15 points on 6-of-9 shooting. Of course, he knocked down a bevy of mid-range jumpers and treys in the period, but his most impressive play of the flurry came on a fantastic steal and finish with contact against Blake Griffin. The Dragon then carried over his sharp play into the fourth, where he hit an extremely difficult three despite getting fouled by Ish Smith. Simply put, the Slovenian looked very much like an All-Star on Saturday night. Dragić led the HEAT with a season-high 33 points on 13-of-23 shooting and also accumulated six assists, two rebounds, two steals and a block.

From the very beginning, Kelly Olynyk was just in a different gear. The 7-footer got going in a hurry with 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting in the first quarter, but his best play of the night would come in crunch time off a fake handoff. In addition to his team-high 25 points on 11-of-15 shooting and 13 rebounds, Olynyk also tallied three assists.

In addition to his team-high 20 points on 9-of-16 shooting, Whiteside also led the team with 12 rebounds and two blocks.

Even though Hassan Whiteside did well offensively throughout the contest, you could tell that his heavily wrapped right hand was bothering him. Still, the big fella fought through it, adjusted and finished plays with both hands. Of course, none were as big as the tip-in he had in traffic to win the game for the HEAT. In short, it was one heck of an ending to a very intense fourth quarter. In all, Whiteside grabbed nine rebounds (four offensive) to go along with his 17 points on 7-of-13 shooting. Goran Dragić, meanwhile, led Miami with 28 points.

Even though Wayne Ellington had himself a nice start to the contest thanks to his constant movement off the ball, nothing could prepare Detroit for what was to come in the fourth quarter. Ellington essentially sealed the deal with nine points on 3-of-5 shooting in the period, including a crafty step-back three off a nice shot-fake. The 29-year-old finished with 19 points on 7-of-10 shooting, including 5-of-7 from deep, and two assists.

After being in and out of the lineup due to various injuries, Wayne Ellington has finally found a nice rhythm over his last few games. Sunday night was no exception, as the swingman nailed four treys and continued to light up the scoreboard. In addition to his 3-pointers, Ellington also knocked down a few mid-range jumpers and a nice sky-high floater. In short, the 29-year-old was cool, calm and collected throughout. Ellington finished with 18 points on 7-of-15 shooting, four rebounds and three assists.

After Miami got off to a slow start, Tyler Johnson gave the team a jolt of energy off the bench late in the first quarter. Throughout the first half, Johnson attacked the basket and got to the charity stripe often. Despite losing a tooth in the third quarter, Johnson’s aggressiveness never wavered. On the contrary, he continued to plug away and came up with a nice block on Beno Udrih after fighting through a screen from Aron Baynes. In all, Johnson led the team with 17 points and seven assists.

When things mattered most in crunch time, Joe Johnson came through like he always has throughout his 14-year career. The vet had 15 points in the fourth quarter on a perfect 6-of-6 shooting, including a huge corner three that put Miami up 96-89 with 46.5 seconds remaining in the contest. He also threw a great lob to Hassan Whiteside earlier in the period. While his play in the fourth changed the game, Johnson also had a nice burst in the third quarter when the HEAT needed a jolt of energy. The vet scored six points in the period, with most of that coming off methodical takes to the rack. On one with a little under three minutes to play in the quarter, Johnson used a screen from Udonis Haslem at the left wing and took it to the paint in his sweet spot. From there, he hit the floater despite getting fouled by Andre Drummond. In addition to his 25 points on 10-of-15 shooting, the 34-year-old also led the team with five assists against Detroit.

While Goran Dragic had a solid first two quarters, the point guard really caught fire in the second half to make sure Miami remained in control. Early on, Dragic mixed things up with aggressive drives in the half court and mid-range jumpers off solid screens from Amar’e Stoudemire and Luol Deng. Once the fourth quarter came around, though, things got crazy. Dragic nailed three 3-pointers in the final period, mostly off catch-and-shoot opportunities. He essentially couldn’t miss down the stretch, scoring 11 points on 4-of-5 shooting in the fourth. In addition to his 22 points and eight assists on 9-of-15 shooting, Dragic also had five boards on Tuesday night. Additionally, the HEAT as a whole played great defense and held the Pistons to just 40 percent shooting.

Although Miami fell just a tad short, both Dwyane Wade and Bosh did all they could to try and get the win. Bosh was key in a late run for Miami that spanned from the end of the third into the fourth quarter. He scored 11 points in that 17-8 run that put the HEAT up 83-78 with 7:33 left. Throughout the game, Bosh mixed it up with his usual mid-range jumpers and aggressive drives to the hoop. While Bosh had a strong outing, Wade was also very active on both ends against the Pistons. He had a very quick start and poured in 10 of his 19 points in the first half thanks to action off the pick-and-roll with Hassan Whiteside. Wade finished with 19 points and five boards, while Bosh totaled three boards and two assists to go along with his 20 points.

In an otherwise slow first half for the HEAT, Goran Dragic was locked-in against the Pistons. His aggressive approach to the game was much needed in Miami’s first road game in over two weeks. In all, Dragic had 13 points on 5-of-11 shooting and four assists. Even though Miami was down, Gerald Green continued to fight and never gave up against Detroit. The dynamic scorer poured in nine of his 16 points in the third, as he started to catch fire from the perimeter.

While Wade led the team in scoring, Hassan Whiteside also made a huge impact. Whiteside hit a bunch of hook shots and had some gorgeous moves in the post against Andre Drummond. He also worked very hard on the offensive glass even though he absorbed contact often from Detroit’s frontline. Defensively, Whiteside came up big and swatted six shots, including two on Drummond. Whiteside finished the game with 13 points and 12 boards to go along with those six blocks. After a slow start to the game, Wade and Dragić got Miami going in the right direction in the second quarter. Wade scored 13 in the second quarter, while Dragić had 12 in the period. Dragić did a lot of damage from the perimeter against the Pistons and had 21 points and seven assists. Wade, meanwhile, was automatic through three quarters on Saturday night. The co-captain finished the game with 24 points on 11-of-18 shooting.

WIN: 102-109
Dwyane Wade had it going all night against the Pistons. Wade primarily got some floaters and hook shots to go in the opening period before he started to mix it up. After that point, he attacked from the perimeter and hit some tough mid-range jumpers. As usual, Wade saved his best for crunch time, as he scored 19 of his 40 points in the fourth quarter. Wade also grabbed six boards and dished out four assists to go along with his 40 points. Udonis Haslem came through with a vintage performance on Sunday night. Wade often found him with some excellent feeds, but Haslem also had a few tip-ins against the Pistons. Although he had a tough assignment in Andre Drummond for a majority of the night, Haslem answered the call and had a double-double in the first half alone. Haslem finished the game with 18 points and 13 rebounds. With the HEAT down a lot of players, it took a complete effort to come away victorious. Five players scored in double-figures as Miami tallied 20 assists against Detroit. With Luol Deng out for the second half, James Ennis had a hot start to the third quarter and got Miami off on the right foot. He also did relatively well when the HEAT switched to a 2-3 zone in the third quarter. Mario Chalmers also had to play in an unfamiliar position at times in the second half. Both Ennis and Chalmers dug in and did whatever it took to grind out a tough win against a Detroit team that had won four straight entering the night.

After struggling a bit in the first half, Chris Bosh came out guns blazing in the third quarter. Bosh hit tough jumper after tough jumper and scored 21 of his 34 points on 9-of-9 shooting in the third. While it wasn’t enough in the end, it was good to see Bosh find the range often against Detroit. Luol Deng made his return to the starting lineup against the Pistons and had a pretty good outing in his first game back since injuring his calf. When the HEAT needed something on the offensive end in the first half outside of Bosh, Deng barreled to the rim and got to the line. Deng did most of his damage in the post and also created well for his teammates. In all, Deng scored 10 points, grabbed five boards and dished out three assists against Detroit. Even though the HEAT fell short, they kept at it and fought hard throughout the game. Bosh did all he could in the third quarter and Hassan Whiteside came up big on the defensive end with five blocked shots. Whiteside also had 11 points and 10 rebounds against Detroit. The Pistons got out in transition early on and built off that. From there, they knocked down tough shots the rest of the way. Miami made a push in the end with an 11-3 run behind the hot shooting of Danny Granger, but it just wasn’t in the cards.

Haslem started the game 6-of-6 shooting from the field in the first quarter, which included the HEAT’s first three buckets. In all, Haslem scored a season-high 17 points and grabbed five rebounds. He also drew two charges in that first quarter, one on Kyle Singler and the other on Greg Monroe. James and Haslem set the tone for the HEAT in the first quarter. Six HEAT players scored in double figures and stepped up in the absence of a number of key contributors (Wade, Chalmers, Oden and Allen) on Friday night. Norris Cole had one of his best games in a while, scoring 12 points on 4-of-9 shooting from the field and was very efficient with his passes against the Pistons, as he had seven assists. Chris Bosh had 15 points and nine rebounds and was instrumental in the third quarter when the HEAT ran away with the game. Chris Andersen was his usual energetic self and scored 13 points and grabbed six boards.
