No jaws were left undropped on Thursday night as the Miami Heat and the Charlotte Hornets went at it in a throbbing challenge. The game required two extra amounts of time to choose the outcome, with the Heat getting away with a 111-107 triumph. Kyle Lowry came up enormous for the Heat in time to get down to business, scoring 12 of his 25 points in the additional two-time frames. The 35-year-old Lowry returned to some time in the past for ostensibly his best execution since moving to South Beach.
Duncan Robinson added 21 points for Miami, and Jimmy Butler defeated a terrible shooting night to make two grip jumpers in the second extra time frame and get done with 15 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists.
Miami has won six of its last seven games, tying the Chicago Bulls for the best record in the East at 38-21.
“It’s been fun,” Lowry said the team’s play. “We have a great group and a bunch of guys who want to win games.” Butler celebrated an exhausting win by sipping on a Michelob Ultra at the podium while sitting alongside Lowry and Bam Adebayo. “I felt great,” Butler said. “A dub is a dub.”
Miles Bridges had 29 points and 11 rebounds for Charlotte and LaMelo Ball added 14 points, 14 assists and 10 rebounds prior to fouling out in the subsequent extra time. The Hornets limped into the All-Star break having lost eight of its last nine games to tumble to 29-31. Montrezl Harrell added 24 points and eight rebounds off the seat.
The Heat followed by 14 after Harrell scored seven straight points to open the final quarter.
However, Miami pulled back to tie it behind three 3s from Robinson and got an opportunity to win it in the guideline, yet Butler’s leap shot limits away. The two groups got an opportunity to win it in the principal additional time. With Charlotte following by one, Harrell was fouled in the paint with 1.7 seconds left. He made the first to tie the game, yet the Hornets newbie missed the second. Miami called a break to set up a play for Butler, yet his corner 3 was to some extent avoided by P.J. Washington.
