Wayne Ellington is called “The Man With The Golden Arm” for a reason. With Miami already up double-digits in the fourth quarter, the 29-year-old ensured there would be no comeback from Minnesota and scored nine points in the fourth on 3-of-5 shooting from downtown. On the flip side of the ball, Ellington did a nice job of guarding Jamal Crawford, Shabazz Muhammad and even Jimmy Butler when he was matched up with him. In addition to his team-high 21 points on 6-of-9 shooting, the former North Carolina Tar Heel also had three boards.

Remarkable.

In all, Waiters led the team with 33 points on 14-of-28 shooting and also tallied five rebounds, four assists and three steals.

Based on the HEAT radio broadcast, it seemed as though Hassan Whiteside continued to impact the game on both ends. In fact, Whiteside helped the HEAT get off to a quick 14-3 start thanks to an eight-point, six-rebound, two-block first quarter on 3-of-4 shooting. Throughout the contest, the 27-year-old mixed it up with push-shots, jumpers and dunks. In all, the center amassed 17 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks.

LOSS: 103-91
Hassan Whiteside altered plenty of shots at the rim in the first half and was a huge reason why the Timberwolves shot just 32.7 percent through two quarters. While Whiteside blocked five shots in the first half, he really went to work in the third quarter.

Early on into the third, Whiteside had three blocks in a matter of 28 seconds, including a very impressive block on Karl Anthony-Towns. In all, Whiteside recorded a triple-double with 22 points, 14 rebounds and 10 blocks.

Also, on a night where Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh didn’t score a whole lot, Deng’s contribution offensively was pretty important. In all, Deng tallied 20 points on 8-of-14 shooting and six boards.

WIN: 96-84

Dwyane Wade was very effective running the pick-and-roll with both Hassan Whiteside and Chris Bosh. In those instances, he puts so much pressure on the opposing defense because they really don’t know how he’s going to attack. Wade kept up his scoring onslaught in the fourth quarter, where he poured in seven of his 25 points. In addition to those 25 points on a very efficient 11-of-19 shooting, he also had five boards, two assists and three steals against the Timberwolves.

Goran Dragic, meanwhile, was very aggressive throughout the contest and got back to his usual ways finishing among the trees. Dragic finished the game with 18 points on 7-of-12 shooting, three rebounds and two assists.

LOSS: 101-102
Hassan Whiteside came through with one of his best performances yet against the Timberwolves. While he mixed it up with dunks and hook shots, Whiteside also hit a mid-range jumper from about 17 feet out. On the defensive end, Whiteside had a tough assignment in Nikola Pekovic and fared pretty well. In all, Whiteside scored 24 points on 12-of-13 shooting, grabbed 20 rebounds (nine offensive) and blocked two shots. After struggling a bit the past few weeks, Norris Cole showed a great performance against Minnesota. When Mario Chalmers exited the game at the end of the first quarter due to a left shin contusion, Cole made sure the HEAT didn’t miss a beat. Cole scored six points in the second quarter and got Miami out in transition quite often. Later, he hit a clutch 3-pointer to cut the Timberwolves’ lead to one with about two and half minutes to go in regulation. Cole finished the game with 15 points, three rebounds, three assists and two steals. Things were looking good for Miami in the third quarter, as the team built a solid lead thanks to Hassan Whiteside. However, the Wolves kept chipping away behind the solid play of Kevin Martin. Martin simply got hot and scored 17 of his 30 points in the second half despite solid defense by Miami. The HEAT responded and received clutch baskets from Cole, Chris Bosh and Luol Deng. Miami also had a few chances to win it at the buzzer, but it just didn’t happen. Hassan Whiteside has now recorded a double-double in five of his last six games.

Dwyane Wade was very aggressive on Saturday night and ultimately closed the game for the HEAT. He and Luol Deng displayed the nice chemistry they’ve built early on this season, as they connected quite often for some easy buckets. Wade finished with 25 points on 11-of-16 shooting and eight assists. Deng had 14 points,three rebounds, three assists, and two steals. Chris Bosh had another solid game and started to get going from the perimeter in the second half. He finished with 24 points and seven rebounds. The second Udonis Haslem stepped on the court, he made his presence felt. He hit his first three shots and also affected plenty of shots at the rim on the defensive end. In all, Haslem had eight points and six boards. It was great to see the co-captain back on the court doing what he does best. Miami forced Minnesota to commit 16 turnovers and scored 23 points off them.

In a double-overtime thriller, Chris Bosh left his best for when it mattered most. Bosh hit two clutch 3-pointers, one near the end of regulation to get Miami within two and another down the stretch of the second overtime to tie the game. He finished the game 8-of-19 shooting for 24 points and also grabbed nine rebounds. None were as big as a rebound he nabbed with just over 30 seconds left in the first overtime that he got two free throws out of. In the third quarter, LeBron James really started to make his mark and scored 14 points in the quarter which included a run of 12 straight points. In all, James finished the game 12-of-24 shooting for his 34 points. Friday night was one of Mario Chalmers’ best outings of the season. Chalmers was very aggressive and had two great drives down the stretch. He was under control all game and was fearless in crunch time. Chalmers finished the game 7-of-14 shooting for 24 points with six rebounds and six assists. Ray Allen had a chance to win the game at the buzzer, but missed a tough shot.
