Heading into Saturday’s game against the Dallas Mavericks, the Miami Heat were 0-4 on the second night of a back to back. After a hot first half, the Heat blew a 24-point lead and was in danger of losing to the Luka Doncic-less Mavericks. But in the end, the Heat made critical plays down the stretch to close the game. The Heat moves to 19-7 for the season.
It was fun while it lasted. The Miami Heat‘s 11 game winning streak was snapped by the Los Angeles Lakers in what felt like a playoff game. Up by eight at halftime, the Heat found themselves trailing by 11 in the third period before going into the fourth down by three. From there, the game went back and forth, ending with Jimmy Butler‘s missed three-point attempt at the buzzer. The Heat’s record for the season is now 18-7.
For the second straight game, the Miami Heat found themselves in a close one at home. Just like they did against the Chicago Bulls on Sunday, the Heat found a way to beat the Atlanta Hawks. The Heat overcame a 117-111 deficit with less than a minute left in regulation to force overtime, where the team went on a 16-0 run to close the game. The win improves the Heat’s home record to 11-0 for the season. Continue reading →

Even though college basketball has taken a backseat it doesn’t mean that programs aren’t still playing hard. Here’s what select players and coaches had to say about the games they participated in at the Air Force Reserve Jerry Colangelo Classic on Sunday.
For the first time this season, at home, the Miami Heat had to break a sweat to come out victorious.

But in the end, the Heat prevailed. Miami moves to 17-6 for the season.
Here are my takeaways from the team’s 110-105 victory over the Bulls.
