WIN: 121-98
With Goran Dragić out on the second night of a back-to-back, Justise Winslow answered the call and fared very well as Miami’s primary ball handler. In fact, the 22-year-old Winslow led the HEAT with a career-high nine assists, including a great no-look bounce pass to Bam Adebayo for a huge jam in the fourth quarter. That wasn’t all though, as Winslow finished plays at the rim, knocked down a three and also hit a smooth mid-range jumper in the pick-and-roll with Adebayo. Furthermore, the forward executed Miami’s zone defense very well whenever the team went to that. In all, the former Duke Blue Devil tallied 21 points, six rebounds, two steals and a game-high plus-28 rating to go along with his career-high nine assists.

With a bunch of guys out for Miami due to injury, Josh Richardson took it upon himself to will the team to victory. While the 24-year-old had a few nice drives to the rim, he really did damage from downtown. In fact, Richardson nailed a career-high six threes. Of course, the former Tennessee Volunteer also put in work on the defensive end, as he did a great job against Lou Williams, Jawun Evans and Sindarius Thornwell. In addition to his team and career-high 28 points on 10-of-16 shooting, Richardson also accumulated three rebounds, three blocks, two assists, one steal and a team-high plus-eight rating.

Hassan Whiteside sure loves to play the Clippers. Like he has in previous meetings with the franchise, the 7-footer impacted the game on both ends of the floor. After breaking up three lob attempts in the first half, Whiteside continued his strong defensive play in the third quarter with a great block on Austin Rivers. That said, his most impactful play on that end came with three seconds left in the game when he forced a miss from Blake Griffin on a jumper that would have put Los Angeles ahead. A little earlier in the fourth, Whiteside came through with a huge alley-oop to stop the Clippers’ momentum. In addition to his team-high 21 points on 9-of-16 shooting and 17 rebounds, the big fella also accumulated three steals and two blocks.

In fact, the Slovenian tallied 11 points, three boards and two assists in the period thanks to attacking the basket. As a result, the HEAT got within 10 with 25.8 seconds remaining in the third, but the Clippers responded well. That said, Dragić continued to fight down the stretch regardless of the circumstances. In addition to his 24 points on 9-of-18 shooting, the point guard also grabbed five rebounds and led the team with five assists.

After playing just five and a half minutes in the first half due to foul trouble, James Johnson made sure his presence was felt in the third and fourth quarters. In fact, the versatile forward scored all 12 of his points after halftime and was an integral part in Miami’s comeback bid. As he has throughout the HEAT’s past few games, Johnson handled the ball quite a bit against the Clippers. In addition to making plays in the half court, Johnson also pushed tempo and either assisted or converted buckets on the break. When it was all said and done, the 29-year-old grabbed seven rebounds and dished out two assists to go along with his 12 points on 5-of-11 shooting.

LOSS: 100-93
While he had a slow start to the game, Chris Bosh found the range at the perfect time. The 31-year-old scored 10 of his 17 points in the fourth, as he took advantage of some favorable matchups. He did so on 4-of-6 shooting, mixing in a few threes with an aggressive drive against Cole Aldrich. Overall though, Miami had a balanced attack on Sunday. Dwyane Wade had a nice surge in the second quarter, where he scored six of his 17 points mostly on tough jumpers. He also had a fantastic play in transition late in the third quarter where he spun off Wesley Johnson for the nifty and-one finish. Goran Dragic also scored 17 points against the Clippers, with eight of those coming in the final period.

With some players out due to injury, Gerald Green provided much-needed instant offense off the bench. The swingman was simply on fire in the first half, as he scored 13 points on 5-of-11 shooting through the first two quarters. He received plenty of good looks thanks to Miami’s superb ball movement earlier in the game. While Green scored the majority of his points before halftime, he nailed a three in the third as the Clippers were mounting a run and also knocked down a mid-range jumper against Jamal Crawford. In all, Green shot 7-of-14 for his 19 points, including 4-of-8 from downtown, and grabbed two rebounds.

WIN: 104-90
The Miami HEAT defeated the Los Angeles Clippers 104-90 Sunday afternoon at Staples Center. Chris Bosh led the way for the HEAT with 34 points and seven rebounds. Bosh started to get hot in the second quarter and torched the Clippers from mid-range. In all, Bosh had 34 points on 13-of-20 shooting and seven boards. Hassan Whiteside had the best game of his career. Whiteside made an instant impact when he stepped on the floor in the first quarter. He recorded a double-double in the first half alone, which caused Coach Spoelstra to start Whiteside in the third quarter. Whiteside finished with a career-high 23 points and 16 rebounds, as he outplayed DeAndre Jordan. The HEAT earned a great win against one of the best teams in the league on Sunday afternoon. After all the talk of Miami’s second-half struggles, the team made everyone forgot about that against the Clippers. The HEAT expanded their halftime lead and kept up the intensity on both ends throughout the second half. Thanks to Whiteside and Chris Andersen, Miami protected the rim very well against a tough frontline. As a whole, the HEAT rotated quickly on defense and didn’t let anyone go off. The Clippers were held way below their season average in points.

LOSS: 110-93
Despite the loss, Chris Bosh had a great game against the Clippers. Bosh got back to his usual ways from the perimeter and also aggressively took it to the basket. He remained locked in throughout the game and continued to fight. Bosh shot 9-of-17 for his 28 points and also had seven boards. After falling behind early, the HEAT went on a 9-5 run to cut the Clippers’ lead to 65-51 with 8:48 left in the third quarter. Shannon Brown started to get going during the run in the absence of Norris Cole. Unfortunately, that wasn’t enough even though the HEAT kept fighting until the very end. It won’t show in the box score, but Josh McRoberts had a pretty solid night. He made some nice plays on the defensive end with some active hands and showed his excellent passing ability on the other end. He also had the play of the game, a huge highlight-reel dunk. In all, McRoberts had two points, two rebounds and an assist. It was just one of those nights where the other team had it going. The Clippers pretty much couldn’t miss heading out of the gate and shot nearly 60 percent in the first half. Los Angeles would continue its hot start, even though the HEAT started to get going as well. Dwyane Wade sat out due to a hamstring issue.

Dwyane Wade had everything going. Jump shots, drives to the rim, passes out of the post. He was vintage, on a night when the Miami HEAT needed him to be that way. Wade scored 11 of his game-high 29 points in the fourth quarter, an ailing LeBron James added 18, and the HEAT got enough stops down the stretch to beat the Los Angeles Clippers 102-97 on Thursday night for their third straight win. Wade made 13 of 22 shots, added a team-best seven assists, and fueled the fourth-quarter burst that allowed the HEAT to build enough of a cushion to hold off the Clippers in the final minutes. Chris Bosh, playing for the first time since his wife delivered a baby earlier this week, finished with 12 points for Miami as did Ray Allen and Chris Andersen had 10.
