The Heat made it seven straight wins last night after beating the Phoenix Suns 107 to 92. They executed at both ends of the floor and are now running like a well oiled machine. Last night’s win reminded the NBA what happens when Dwyane Wade and LeBron James are both playing well.
LeBron scored 35 points and was ridiculously efficient as he made 11 of his 14 shots. Dwyane Wade was also extremely accurate, scoring 22 points on 9-13 shooting, while adding 12 assists and 6 rebounds for his first double double of the season. The Heat cruised to their seventh double digit win of the season and had some fun after the game with arguably the best photo/video bomb in Heat history (shown above). Apologies to the photobomb master Chris Bosh but you just might have been dethroned.
But in terms of the Suns, they played well but were simply over-matched and never gained control. One of the highlights for the Suns was their PG Goran Dragic who broke out for a big night as he nearly tripled doubled finishing with 14 points, 8 rebounds and 9 assists. The Suns had stringed together back to back wins before last night’s loss and are now 7-7.
The Heat are now set to go on the road for the next two games including a stop in Cleveland where LeBron is hosting a Thanksgiving dinner for the whole team.
MIA: Ray Allen 17 Pts, 3 Rebs, 1 Blk and 1 Stl.
PHX: Channing Frye 16 Pts, 8 Rebs, 3 Assist and 3 Stls
