Warren on the same possession late in the fourth quarter. Whiteside finished with 23 points on 8-of-11 shooting, 10 rebounds and four blocks.

Although Hassan Whiteside had a slow start to the contest, he really picked things up in the third quarter.

With Hassan Whiteside out once again, Willie Reed got his second straight start and certainly made the most of it. The 6-foot-10 center did all he could down the stretch to help Miami get back in the game, as he tallied 12 points and seven rebounds in the fourth quarter. As a whole, Reed did a great job on the offensive glass to give his team a bunch of second-chance opportunities. Otherwise in the contest, Reed remained ready for the catch in the post and came through with a number of long hook-shots. Naturally, the 26-year-old also rolled to the basket with force. On the flip side of the ball, Reed swatted two shots, including a nice block from behind on a dunk attempt from Len. In all, the former Saint Louis product tallied a career-high 22 points on 11-of-16 shooting and a career-high 18 rebounds (eight offensive) to go along with his two blocks.

WIN: 108-92
Early on, Goran Dragic did his usual damage in transition with some easy layups. However, the Slovenian also nailed a few catch-and-shoot threes thanks to solid ball movement. The quick start allowed him to stay in a rhythm, as the point guard remained aggressive throughout the night. In the second half, Dragic kept pressure on the Suns and weaved through their defense for some tough conversions in the half court. Not to mention, he also had a big offensive rebound and put-back inside to put Miami up 95-81 as Phoenix was gaining some momentum. Dragic finished the game with 25 points, seven boards and four assists on 10-of-18 shooting. Dwyane Wade, meanwhile, led the team with 27 points and seven assists.

Dwyane Wade kicked it into high gear for most of the game, especially in the first half. It was the fourth quarter, though, where he really shined. Wade poured in nine of his 27 points in the fourth thanks to some crafty moves against Devin Booker. The vet responded very well to a clean, hard foul by the rookie and closed out the game for the HEAT. In all, Wade shot 9-of-14 for his 27 points and also had two boards and two assists on the night. Although Wade was instrumental down the stretch, the HEAT wouldn’t have been in a position to win the game had it not been for Gerald Green and Goran Dragic. The duo connected in transition a few times, but no sequence was as crucial as the one they had with less than five minutes to go in the game. First, Green found Dragic with a difficult cross-court pass for the corner three. Then on the following possession, Dragic returned the favor and dished it to Green for a three to give Miami an 89-87 lead that it wouldn’t relinquish. Dragic facilitated very well and led the team with seven assists to go along with his 22 points on 8-of-15 shooting. Green, meanwhile, finished the game with 21 points, four rebounds and three assists on 7-of-11 shooting.

Tyler Johnson was aggressive from the very moment he stepped on the court. As the game wore on, Johnson started to connect from the perimeter, as he moved well without the ball to get open looks. Johnson hit all three of his 3-pointers and shot 10-of-13 for a career-high 26 points. Six different players scored in double-figures for the HEAT, which kept the Suns on their heels. Wade and Chalmers were the primary facilitators and set up their teammates well. In all, the HEAT tallied 19 assists on the night. The HEAT withstood every run the Suns threw at them. Miami gained a big lead in the second quarter and made sure it would not relinquish it. A big reason for that lead was a great defensive disposition by the HEAT. Miami forced the Suns to commit 13 turnovers and shoot just 42.5 percent in the first half. In particular, Michael Beasley came through with some nice plays. The defensive intensity continued in the second half, as Phoenix shot just 42.3 percent for the game. There was some chippiness throughout, as a fair share of technical fouls were assessed on both teams. However, the HEAT didn’t let that faze them and remained focused on the task at hand. Hassan Whiteside once again was a monster on the boards while he was on the floor. He finished the game with 17 points and 10 rebounds in 25 minutes of action. Miami had 21 fast break points against Phoenix.

In all, Bosh shot 14-of-21 for his 34 points and also had nine rebounds. Miami also moved the ball well once again. The HEAT totaled 25 assists on 43 made field goals and everyone joined the fray.
