Although Josh Richardson has had some great games this season, nothing quite tops his performance against the Rockets. From the opening tip, the 24-year-old was just on another level in terms of his approach and did whatever it took. While Richardson attacked the basket and set up his teammates quite well early on, things really got fun in the third quarter. In the period, the former Tennessee Volunteer knocked down all three of his treys and led Miami with 12 points. On the flip side of the ball, J. Rich emptied the tank against both Chris Paul and James Harden and made things as tough as possible on the two dynamic superstars. When it was all said and done, Richardson scored a career-high 30 points and hit a career-high seven threes to go along with five assists, four rebounds, one steal and a block.

You aren’t going to find many first quarters better than the one Hassan Whiteside had against the Rockets. The big fella was just in another gear at the start, as he hit his first six shots and absolutely abused Clint Capela in the opening quarter. As such, he tallied 14 points on 7-of-8 shooting, three boards, three steals and two assists in the period. Then in the second quarter, Whiteside had a jam in transition thanks to a fantastic no-look touch pass from Justise Winslow. Although the 7-footer slowed down a bit in the second half, his contribution early on was very important. In addition to his team-high 22 points on 11-of-16 shooting, Whiteside also led Miami with 13 rebounds and three steals.

In short, Hassan Whiteside had a quick start to the game and never looked back. Before committing his second foul with 5:24 left in the first quarter, the big fella scored six points on 3-of-3 shooting, blocked two shots and dished out an assist. Then when Whiteside reentered the game in the second quarter, he made his presence felt on the offensive glass. He wasn’t done there, though. Not by a long shot. As the night wore on, the 7-footer continued to wreak havoc on the glass and did damage offensively against both Nene and Clint Capela. He also played superb defense down the stretch and came away with two blocks in the fourth quarter. In all, it was a complete performance for Whiteside, who finished with 23 points on 9-of-13 shooting, 14 rebounds and five blocks.

Since Houston likes to play fast, Goran Dragić was in a perfect situation to do some damage in transition. And that he did. The Slovenian pushed the pace a bit more than usual given the opponent and either created for his teammates or completed the play himself. In particular, Dragić wreaked havoc in the fourth quarter and took advantage of the Rockets’ miscues. In the period, the point guard tallied six points, five assists and three rebounds. In all, Dragić tallied 21 points on 8-of-15 shooting, eight boards and a team-high eight assists. Otherwise, Miami played very well defensively against one of the best offensive teams in the league and held Houston to 40 percent shooting from the field.

With Miami down 71-57 in the third quarter, Luol Deng was the catalyst on a 15-3 HEAT run to cut the deficit to two. He ended up with eight points in the period, including a great follow and two corner threes. The vet also defended James Harden for a majority of the game, which obviously took up a lot of energy. Earlier in the night, Deng also had a thunderous baseline jam off a nice set up by Goran Dragic. In addition to his 17 points on 7-of-13 shooting, the former Blue Devil tallied eight boards and three assists. Six other players scored in double-figures for Miami, including Amar’e Stoudemire, who notched his second-straight double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds on the night.

With the Rockets playing small in the absence of Dwight Howard, Hassan Whiteside went to work early on in the post. The big man fought hard on the offensive glass and scored 11 of his 25 points in the opening quarter alone. Throughout the game, he showed his strength inside and converted a number of tough finishes despite getting fouled. In addition to his 25 points, Whiteside also grabbed 15 boards and swatted two shots. Justise Winslow, meanwhile, helped hold down James Harden to just 2-of-15 shooting, including 0-of-10 from downtown. The rookie finished the game with 10 points, three boards and two assists. Despite being down 19 points at halftime, the HEAT stormed back thanks to much better defense and transition buckets.

WIN: 105-100
While the HEAT’s projected starting lineup of Goran Dragic, Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng, Chris Bosh and Hassan Whiteside all played together in Thursday’s scrimmage, Saturday night against the Rockets was their first action against another opponent. Dragic pushed tempo often in the first quarter and helped Miami get some easy buckets. Thanks to that, the HEAT totaled nine fast break points in the first half alone. Dragic also looked pretty comfortable with Bosh throughout the game. As long as they continue to build chemistry, all should be fine. Dragic totaled 10 points, three assists and two steals on the night. Whiteside scored 12 points, grabbed nine boards and blocked six shots. Mario Chalmers and Josh McRoberts missed the game due to rehabilitative recovery. Chris Andersen (illness) also sat out.

2014-15 Season vs Houston

Rockets vs HEAT
Jan. 3, 2015
LOSS: 79-115
Dwyane Wade led the way for the HEAT with 15 points, four rebounds and three assists. Wade started off the game very well and moved effectively without the ball. As a result, Wade mixed it up and got some nice looks throughout the game. In all, Wade scored 15 points, grabbed four boards and dished out three assists. Both Wade and Bosh scored in double-figures in the first half on Saturday night. In addition, Luol Deng was very active to start the game and worked very hard on the boards. Unfortunately, the HEAT slowed down in the third quarter and the Rockets made a run. James Ennis and Hassan Whiteside had some flashy plays in the fourth quarter that were hopefully a sign of things to come moving forward. Whiteside finished with 14 points on 6-of-8 shooting, six rebounds and two blocks against Houston. Ennis, meanwhile, had seven points, two rebounds and two assists on the night.

LOSS: 108-91
After being named Eastern Conference Player of the Week on Monday afternoon, Chris Bosh followed that up with another solid performance against the Rockets. Bosh caught fire and rallied the HEAT back in the third quarter with some timely perimeter shots. In all, Bosh shot 8-of-14 for his 21 points and also grabbed eight rebounds. Dwyane Wade also had a pretty good night. Wade stuck the mid-range jumper and was very aggressive off the dribble in a 15-point first half. In all, Wade shot 7-of-11 for 19 points and had three assists. After a solid outing against the Raptors on Sunday night, Justin Hamilton had perhaps his best game yet against the Rockets. He finished with nine points on 50 percent shooting from downtown and also grabbed seven boards (five of which were offensive). Shawne Williams found some open looks thanks to great ball movement and was 3-of-4 from distance. Williams finished with 14 points and five rebounds.

Dwyane Wade always plays at a different level against other elite-level shooting guards, and Tuesday night was no different. Wade started the game off red-hot, as he hit his first six shots and was money from the perimeter. In all, Wade shot 11-of-17 for his 26 points and also had six assists, two rebounds and a nice block on Terrence Jones. Chris Bosh was also extremely effective against the Rockets from both inside and outside. In his 34 minutes of play, Bosh hit 7-of-12 shots for 22 points and nabbed six boards. As he has all preseason, he got to the free-throw line plenty and also did his usual damage from the perimeter. Chalmers scored nine of his 13 points in the third quarter, including a contested, bank-shot 3-pointer from the corner. He also tallied four steals and three assists on the night. It won’t show on the box score, but Khem Birch played a solid game and never gave up on a play. He finished with two points, one board, one block and one assist on the night. As expected, Coach Spoelstra gave HEAT fans a little preview of the rotation and played guys more regular minutes on Tuesday night.
