Miami defeated the champion in FTX Arena

Miami coach Erik Spoelstra celebrated his 52nd birthday tonight with a 116:109 victory over the current champions, the Golden State Warriors.

Miami basketball players played great against a favored opponent and managed to defeat them, after a better game in the last 5 minutes of the match.

The home team played better in the first half and was in the lead most of the time. However, the visitors from San Francisco made 6 triples in the third quarter to make it 86:94.

In the last 12 minutes of the match, we saw run-and-gun basketball, which suited the host better. Duncan Robinson was the X factor, he hit 3 three-pointers, two of which were very important, for the tie (first at 100:100 and then for 107:107), which greatly contributed to raising Miami’s morale.

A mini-series of 7:0 in the last minute of the match was enough for the host to celebrate with a score of 116:109.

Max Strus led the list of Miami scorers with 24 points, followed by Jimmy Butler with one less point. Adebayo added 19, and the aforementioned Duncan Robinson added 17.

Steph Curry, on the other hand, recorded the best game of the season, recording a triple-double with 23 points and 13 rebounds and assists. Andrew Wiggins added 21 points, and Klay Thompson 19.

Both teams, after this round, have an identical performance of 3 wins and 5 losses each.
