Heat Set Franchise Scoring Record, Top Nuggets In Double OT

Heat Set Franchise Scoring Record, Top Nuggets In Double OT

The Heat has momentum after picking up that double overtime win over the Nuggets and they're at home: with the Knicks having nothing to play for, you have to back Miami here.

Denver Nuggets v Miami Heat MIAMI, FL - MARCH 19: Kelly Olynyk #9 of the Miami Heat and Nikola Jokic #15 of the Denver Nuggets tip-off to begin overtime at American Airlines Arena on March 19, 2018 in Miami, Florida. Meanwhile, the Heat are 5-0 ATS in their last five home games, 7-2-2 ATS in their last 11 games following a win and 11-3-2 ATS in their last 16 games overall. "They took over in the second overtime and pulled it out". The Heat got 31 points and 13 rebounds from James Johnson (no, the other one). Wayne Ellington made six three-pointers and had 23 points. The previous scoring record was 141 points, done twice.

After ending regulation tied at 118 and the first overtime knotted at 131, the Heat outscored the Nuggets 18-10 in the second extra frame to take control.

It's also the most points scored by any team this season. Dragic's floater with 10.5 seconds remaining in the Heat's most recent game against the Lakers ended up as the game-winning shot. Miami is comfortably in the eighth and final spot in the East; 6.5 games up on the Detroit Pistons, but only a half-game back from the seventh-seeded Milwaukee Bucks - who are up against the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight. Miami comes in 5 in scoring defense as they allow 103 points per game. The Heat put up the league's highest scoring point total in the win, which was closely contested all the way through. As a team, the Knicks shot 44 percent from the field while holding the Bulls to just 35 percent shooting from the field and three of 30 from the three-point line.

They were able to do this despite being without the services of Dwyane Wade and Hassan Whiteside on the court which made it even more impressive.

Nikola Jokic led the Nuggets with 34 points. Two hours after a game that featured two extra sessions? The home team was led by the heroics of Johnson, who notched 31 points, 11 rebounds, and six assists in a well-rounded effort that also included a steal and a block. The Bulls at 24-46 have been officially eliminated from playoff contention and represent another situation that should result in victory for the Nuggets.

Both teams are in desperate need of a win, being stuck in the middle of the playoff race with no seeding guaranteed yet.

The NBA's stat system crashed late in the first overtime, and crews were scrambling to determine the final numbers long after the buzzer. The teams have combined to go under the total in seven of their last nine meetings: look for that to continue here as the Knicks are up and down offensively and the Heat might be a little worn down after their track meet with the Nuggets.
