Last night’s matchup between the Heat and the Warriors was an entertaining one, to say the least. The Heat were at home with their largest crowd of the season so far but couldn’t hold off the surging Warriors, who took this one 123-114. The Warriors have won their last seven in a row and are absolutely on fire right now in the cutthroat Western Conference.
How did they beat Miami and the Big Three? Steph Curry played a big part in the win. Arguably the most watchable player in the NBA right now, Curry put on a clinic against the league’s best team. Curry racked up 36 points and 12 assists, and 24 of his points came from three-point range.
Take a break from battling the blizzard and watch the hottest player in the league do his thing for five minutes.
Not a Lebron fan? Yeah, me neither. Watch the court monster claim another victim.
Not a Dwyane Wade fan? You’re in for a treat.
See kids: this is why you dunk on fast breaks. Don’t get me wrong, the Heat are still a very good team, probably the best in the East (unless the Pacers want to go ahead and prove me wrong). All five of the Heat starters went for double digits last night, and don’t count on the Heat giving up 123 or more points again anytime soon. According to ESPN, this is the first time the Heat gave up 123 points in a non-overtime game since the Big Three took their talents down to Miami.
