Miami Heat Fall to Golden State Warriors

Despite a strong effort by the Heat Wednesday night against the Warriors, it was just not enough, and the Heat fell to the Warriors, 118 to 112.

The Heat led by nine at the end of the first quarter, outscoring the Warriors, 30 to 21. Miami held a one point lead with 42 seconds left on the clock in the fourth quarter, but Warriors point guard Stephen Curry hit a three pointer with 39 seconds left to take the lead, and Golden State never looked back from there. The victory improves Golden State’s overall record to 51-5.

Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson said he stuck with it even when his shots were failing. Thompson finished the game with 33 points and three rebounds for Golden State.

Curry had another strong performance for Golden State, scoring 42 points and seven rebounds. Last night he tied the NBA record for  three pointers in consecutive games, a record he now shares with Kyle Korver of the Atlanta Hawks. Curry now has made a three pointer in 127 consecutive regular season games.

For the Heat, Dwyane Wade led the team with 32 points, which was a season high for him.

The loss drops Miami’s record to 32-25. The Heat will be back in action on Saturday versus the Boston Celtics.
