The Miami Heat had a four-game winning streak snapped on Sunday night in a showdown with the Western Conference-leading Oklahoma City Thunder. The Heat gave up plenty of easy buckets to the Thunder, who shot 53 percent from the floor and enjoyed a comfortable double-digit lead for much of the second half. Oklahoma City closed it out with a 103-87 win.
Dwyane Wade led all Miami scorers with 22 points. Wade drilled three three-pointers in the second half which kept Miami from being blown off the floor. But as a team, the Heat shot just 32 percent from behind the arc and could not match the offensive firepower of OKC. In addition to the poor shooting from downtown, Miami was careless with the basketball and committed 21 turnovers.
Miami will stay out on the road and travel to Indiana where they will face the Pacers on Monday night on the second night of a back-to-back.
