Struggling Miami Heat get win over Houston Rockets

By Laura Hundemer,

A struggling Miami Heat team ended their victory drought Sunday in Miami as they beat the Houston Rockets 113-104. Prior to this game, the Heat had lost five out of six games.

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 two 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.

"It's always a collaborative effort with shooters. It's a symbiotic relationship because you have to work together to get a shooter open," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said after the win, notes ESPN.

The next question is can the Heat keep the momentum going? The team plays the Cleveland Cavaliers on the road Tuesday.
