The Heat couldn't hold off the Warriors, and a slim fourth-quarter lead evaporated as Golden State came charging.
The Golden State Warriors stole a victory out from under the Miami Heat on Wednesday night, with Draymond Green laying up a slick pass from Jarrett Jack to put the Heat away. Neither team led by more than four in the fourth quarter, and three straight bricks from Miami allowed Golden State to grab the win.
No one gained much of an advantage in the early going, with Golden State going into the locker room at halftime with just a one-point lead. Miami clawed out a four-point lead for the start of the fourth quarter and continued that momentum, outscoring Golden State for much of the final 12 minutes.
The Warriors refused to quit, and a pair of free throws by David Lee pulled the teams even, 95-95, with 1:54 left to play. The scoring went completely dry for the next minute and a half, with Miami going 0-for-3 and Golden State 0-for-2 before the layup by Green.
LeBron James had 31 points on 12-of-23 shooting, including a perfect 5-of-5 from the free-throw line. Chris Bosh added another 21 points and had 13 rebounds, and Dwyane Wade finished the night with 14 points. Ray Allen shot 6-of-10 with just 1-for-4 from beyond the arc, finishing with 14 points.
Klay Thompson led the scoring for the Warriors with 27 points, and David Lee added 22 more with 13 rebounds. Jarret Jack had 20 points and four assists, including the set-up to the game-winner.
