Post Up: Scorching Heat

76ers 91 (0-14), Heat 96 (8-4)

Guided by a strong fourth quarter from Dwyane Wade and Justise Winslow, the Heat overcame a 17-point deficit to deny the 76ers their first win of the season. Philadelphia was rolling on early on, but to no avail; the 76ers’ next chance for victory will come Monday against the Timberwolves.

Grizzlies 82 (7-6), Spurs 92 (9-3)

The Spurs bounced back from a poor showing against the Pelicans with a solid win to remain undefeated at home. The Grizzlies, meanwhile, had a four-game winning streak snapped and will look to regroup against the Mavericks on Tuesday.

Kings 97 (5-9), Magic 91 (6-7)

DeMarcus Cousins posted a ridiculous stat line in this one: boasting 29 points, 12 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 steals, and 3 blocks in a winning effort on the road. Despite a 24-14 run in the fourth quarter, Orlando came up short on Saturday.

Bucks 86 (5-8), Pacers 123 (8-5)

Strong performances from C.J. Miles and Paul George helped turn this one into a laugher, as an alley-oop jam from Glenn Robinson helped put the finishing touches on Milwaukee’s night. The Bucks have a bright future with Jabari Parker and Giannis Antetokounmpo, but games like these are to be expected from a young team.

Hawks 97 (9-6), Cavaliers 109 (10-3)

Kevin Love posted 25 points and LeBron James added 19 in a re-match of last year’s Eastern Conference Finals. Frustrated by the game’s officiating (one would guess), LeBron James subbed himself out in the third quarter, resulting in a technical foul.

Wizards 97 (6-4), Pistons 95 (7-6)

The Wizards just did eke out a victory over Detroit in this one, as Nene led his team with 18 points, 7 rebounds, and 2 assists. His streak of double-doubles may have ended tonight, but Andre Drummond provided some fireworks in the first half.

Knicks 107 (8-6), Rockets 102 (5-9)

Kristaps Porzingis was on a mission Saturday night, posting 24 points, 14 rebounds, and 7 blocks in New York’s fourth straight victory. Alternatively, the Rockets can’t buy a win; Houston’s now dropped six of their last seven.
