The Golden State Warriors come from 17 points down to deal the Miami Heat their second loss of the season.
From The Associated Press: The NBA’s first-place team seemed to be in control with a flurry of dunks, alley-oops and high-flying layups for most of the night.
The Heat clamped down on defense and broke away with a 21-8 run to open the third quarter, relying on the Big Three to provide the highlights: Wade flipped a pass that Chris Bosh finished with a one-handed scoop, James had a soaring finger roll and Wade flicked a spinning layup past a crowd of defenders to push Miami ahead 78-61.
All of Miami’s positive vibes evaporated almost as quickly.
Nate Robinson ignited the Warriors with a 3-pointer followed by a layup late in the fourth quarter, finishing with 24 points off the bench. Udonis Haslem picked up a technical foul on the play, and Robinson’s free throw tied the score at 93.
And the Warriors would go on to beat the Heat in OT.
