The Miami Heat have been hot as of late, but that couldn’t stop them from coming away losers to the Dallas Mavericks last outing, falling short with the final score 96-89.
While out in Philadelphia the 76ers gave the Golden State Warriors a run for their money, yet they still fell short to them 119-108.
The Philadelphia 76ers actually had a chance to pull of an upset win over the Golden State Warriors. They did a great job defending Stephen Curry, and forced him into taking tough shots from the perimeter.
On the night, Steph Curry shot just 0-11 from three-point territory. And that almost played a huge part in Philly coming away victors. However a third quarter collapse ultimately led to their demise as a team.
They got outscored 34-24 in the quarter. And after that they just couldn’t fight their way back into lead. But there are still some positives to take into their next game.
Against Miami, if they can contain Goran Dragic just like they did Curry, they’ll have themselves a shot. The teams got enough offensive firepower with Dario Saric, Robert Covington and Jahlil Okafor. Now it’s just going to come down to their defense.
The Miami Heat had a chance to make it four wins in a row, before they fell short to Dallas last outing. But all of that wouldn’t have transpired had it not been for the Heats terrible play in the second and third quarter.
Dallas totally outplayed them through those two periods, outscoring them 56-35. After that Miami just had no chance to get back into the lead, thanks to the Mavericks defense.
The Mavs held them to just 9 three-pointers on the night (shot 34.6%). And without the perimeter shooting, the Heat couldn’t open up space inside.
That means against Philly they need to find a way to get off better looks from deep. James Johnson was just 0 of 4 from three, while Rodney McGruder went 1 of 3.
They can’t have that next game, if they hope to win. So if they can get Waiter and Dragic going from deep early, they’ll have a better chance at earning the “W” over the surging 76ers.
