Johnson did a lot of damage from the perimeter and knocked down a bunch of in-rhythm jumpers. Still, his biggest contribution came on the defensive end, as he routinely altered shots at the rim.

Mar. 7, 2015
WIN: 109-114
Dwyane Wade hit some very tough mid-range jumpers down the stretch after he primarily took it to the rack earlier in the game. On one play late in overtime, Wade aggressively drove inside and kicked it out to Mario Chalmers at the right corner, which led to a huge three from Tyler Johnson that put Miami up 108-104. Wade’s all-around clutch play was vital in the victory. In all, he shot 10-of-18 for his 28 points, grabbed four boards and dished out four assists. Beasley scored 12 of his 18 points in the second half against the Kings before he fouled out late in the fourth quarter. He had a number of tough finishes at the rim, including one over the outstretched arm of DeMarcus Cousins. On the defensive end, Beasley held his own against Cousins and made things difficult for him down the stretch. Beasley finished the game with 18 points and seven boards. Once more, the HEAT showed grit and fought back after falling behind early on. Miami made a huge push early in the fourth quarter thanks to Beasley and Tyler Johnson. Johnson scored 10 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter and overtime period combined and also led the team with six assists. With some key contributors out, it took a collaborative effort for Miami to come away victorious. It got just that with six guys scoring in double-figures.

HEAT @ Kings
Jan. 16, 2015
WIN: 95-83
The Miami HEAT defeated the Sacramento Kings 95-83 Friday night at Sleep Train Arena. Chris Bosh was very aggressive from the start against the Kings and never looked back. While Bosh drove to the basket a few times, he primarily attacked from the perimeter. He was pretty much automatic on the turnaround, baseline jumper and connected on all three of his 3-pointers. Both Bosh and Luol Deng’s contributions were huge for the HEAT without Dwyane Wade in the lineup. In all, Bosh scored 30 points on 11-of-20 shooting, grabbed seven boards, dished out three assists and had three steals. Miami kept Sacramento on its toes thanks to 26 assists on 35 made field goals. Shabazz Napier started for the second-consecutive game and led the charge in that category, as he had five assists on the night. Napier played under control and made some smart decisions with the ball. He also had 12 points and two steals against the Kings. Defensively, Miami forced the Kings to commit 15 turnovers and scored 17 points off of them.

Dec. 27, 2013
LOSS: 103-108
The Miami HEAT hoped to rest three banged-up regulars and lean on LeBron James to steal a road victory before visiting one of the best teams in the Western Conference. Instead, the Sacramento Kings spoiled those plans - and James hurt himself in the process. James said he strained his right groin before finishing with 33 points, eight rebounds and eight assists as Miami's six-game winning streak ended. The two-time defending NBA champions played without Dwyane Wade (resting his knees), Ray Allen (right knee tendinitis) and Chris Andersen (sore back). James stayed mostly on the perimeter in the second half when his injury started to swell. A day after winning The Associated Press' 2013 Male Athlete of the Year, James helped the HEAT build a big lead early but couldn't hold off a late Kings rally by himself.
