I’m Indian. So I never thought there would be a day that I didn’t like Curry. Then last night happened. You can look at this game a few ways. 1) Be upset because the Heat lost or 2) Be content because the Heat played one of the best teams in the league and hung on for most of the night. The Warriors have the best defense in the league. Yet it was Miami that came out swinging in the first, and was agressive till the game got out of hand in the 4th quarter. Miami lost to Stephen Curry, who can easily be one of the greatest shooters of all time once he retires. Curry had 40 points on 20 shots. The other half of The Splash Brothers Klay Thompson, added 24 points of his own. Would Dwyane Wade have made a difference? Maybe but what Curry did couldn’t really be stopped by anyone. Here’s the highlights of what you missed
Chris Bosh [26 points, 9 rebounds] Regular game as usual, almost got a double double. You know what would be an exciting duo to watch? Bosh and Josh. The very second Bosh and Josh McRoberts become great together, I’m copyrighting that nickname.
Luol Deng [16 points] Not only is Deng a great cutter but he’s starting to take the ball in on his own. Makes me wonder how effective Deng will be once D Wade returns though.
Mario Chalmers [14 points. 4 assists] I expected more. No that isn’t a typo either. Having 14 points from 17 shots is never a good stat either
Shabazz Napier and James Ennis [18 points, 11 rebounds, 6 assists] Oh these rookies are fun to watch aren’t they? The future of the Heat remains on fire as these continue to grow. You got Ennis for your hustle plays and highlights and you trust Napier as the PG you put when the game is on the line.
I’m just going to leave this picture here so you can start to dream of 2016. Heat play at the Garden on Sunday. See you then – @MyNameIsBinoj
