Dragic scores 29, leads Heat past Suns

Dragic scores 29, leads Heat past Suns”

The Heat's $98 million center was pulled from that game with 10:47 to go in the third quarter and never returned, as Spoelstra classified it as a "coach's decision". While Winslow did have a solid showing on Monday against the Warriors, it's still tough to buy this uptick.

After putting together arguably its best defensive night with its worst on the offensive end at Golden State, the Miami Heat switched gears Wednesday night at Talking Stick Arena and just blew past the Suns. He gets the Jazz on Friday and the team should be 100 percent, so that would speak volumes. "Biggest thing is, being out there on the floor I want to make a difference, so going out there, being confident, playing my game, and trusting my teammates".

The Suns want to find ways to permit him do more, perhaps a necessity now that they finally found a taker for point guard Eric Bledsoe. The Suns have lost their last three games, although they have shown progress under Triano, going 4-4 since he was promoted to replace Earl Watson on October 22.

Miami (5-6) took control early. Booker finished with 30 points on 9-of-23 shooting as Phoenix shot 45.5 percent as a team. The Suns missed their first five shots and the Heat jumped out to a 12-2 lead, eventually stretching that lead to as many as 16 points in the first half. Miami led 10-2 in less than three minutes, and Dragic had 11 of his 17 first-half points in the quarter. "The first quarters haven't been good". "They put me in the right spot to I can try, so I can try to attack, and try to be me, so the credit goes to them". But the Heat scored the final seven points of the half, with a 3-pointer by Waiters with 10.8 seconds to go extending the lead back to 69-54 at intermission.

The teams were a combined 17 of 33 from 3-point range in the first half. So now this is two games where we've given up [big points in transition].

"Defensively he was guarding one though four, literally, at different points in the game".

Before Wednesday's game, coach Erik Spoelstra said the Heat would use a "simplified" offense to help cut down on turnovers. "He's just not feeling well".

"Hassan was tremendous tonight", Spoelstra said. Spoelstra continues to juggle his starting lineup, with F Justise Winslow replacing Okaro White.

On Tuesday, the Suns (4-7) sent Bledsoe to the Milwaukee Bucks for veteran big man Greg Monroe and two draft picks, protected first- and second-rounders in 2018.

Monroe will join a big-man crew that includes starting center Tyson Chandler and reserve Alex Len. He is now out with a calf strain. Miami came into the game allowing 16.7 second-chance points per game, the most in the National Basketball Association, but they held the Suns to eight on Wednesday. Phoenix won the first 16 meetings with the Heat in the series.
