Heat Index: Miami Heat Keep It Close In Predictable Loss to Warriors

With Dwyane Wade missing the game with a hamstring strain, the Miami Heat went into Wednesday night’s game against the Golden State Warriors short handed.

I’m not sure he would have made a major difference.

The Heat were outmatched by one of (the?) best team in the NBA, jumping in front of a rolling Warriors team on the second night of a back-to-back. The Heat were able to keep the game relatively close–within 12 points–for much of the game thanks to the efforts of Chris Bosh, Luol Deng and Hassan Whiteside.

But Stephen Curry’s hot shooting and the Dubs mechanical passing and pace made the game an easy decision.

The Heat (17-21) continue its West Coast trip by traveling North to Sacramento Friday.
