NBA -- ​Warriors improve to 51-5 after beating Heat


PhilBoxing.com




MIAMI - Steph Curry and Klay Thompson scored 27 of Golden State's final 29 points in the fourth quarter ​and the Warriors ​earned a hard fought 118-112 victory ​over the Miami Heat ​at ​the ​American Airlines Arena.

Curry finished with a game-high 42 points along with ​seven​ boards and ​seven​ dimes. ​Thompson, ​the other half of the Splash ​B​rother​s,​ added 33 points including 15 straight in the fourth quarter.

But it was Curry's back to back ​3s​ in between Dwyane Wade's free throws, including the go-ahead 3-pointer over the outstretched arm of Miami center Hassan Whiteside with 38 seconds left that sealed the deal for the visiting Warriors.

"It was a huge test," Curry said after the game. "On the road, any time you play against a playoff basketball team, it's going to be a tough task."

Thompson ​added​: "No games are going to come easy, especially on the road. That is a veteran team and they got guys that really know how to play. They weren't going to let us get out on transition a lot. Really tried to grind out and they played at a methodical pace. We could almost play any style, but we just had to make them uncomfortable. "

The Heat wasted a ​season-high ​32​-​point performance by Wade. The 13-time All star missed a game tying floater with 26 seconds left in the game. Whiteside added 21 points and 13 rebounds while Loul Deng chipped in 16 points.

"It was a great game. It was exciting for the fans. We played Miami Heat basketball. It went down the stretch. I felt like we were right there. They made one or two tough shots. It went right there​," Hassan said.​

Miami will look to reclaim the third spot in the East against the Boston Celtics on the road Saturday night​, w​hile the ​51-5 ​Warriors​ ​will carry ​their ​ ​chase of the Bulls' 72-win season with a visit to Orlando on February 25.
