Ray Allen came alive late in the game to give the Heat just what they needed. Allen scored 14 points in the fourth quarter, including 2 three-pointers. It came just in time, as the Heat were struggling through the third quarter.

According to CBS Sports, in the last four minutes of the game, the Heat outscored the Rockets 12-2. Dwyane Wade did his part to contribute to the win, scoring 24 points with 7 assists, while LeBron James gave a solid performance with 24 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists.

Can the Heat keep the momentum going as they face the Cleveland Cavaliers on the road Tuesday?
