The Miami Heat did it again. Well, they did them both again on Friday night in a contest against the LA Clippers at the FTX Arena.

The Miami Heat came out and absolutely dominated for most of the game, again and for the third straight time. They found themselves up high double digits, 16 points to be precise, about midway through the fourth quarter.

This is when the LA clippers decided to make a run of their own, propelled by a few key timely Luke Kennard baskets. Sort of like the game against the last team from Los Angeles, the Lakers on this past Sunday, the Miami Heat proceeded to allow this LA team to climb back into the game as well.

Actually getting it to within a few points with just a minute or so left to go in the game, the Miami Heat would find a way to close it behind their leader, Jimmy Butler.

The Miami Heat let another one get closer than it should have been, but they got the win over the Clippers. Gabe Vincent had quite the night as well.

They eventually got the win, which is always the most important part here and though it bothers you a bit, you can’t really be too mad at it in victory.

With that part accounted for though, there was another massively huge storyline from this game that must be discussed. How can it be about or revolving around anything or anybody else besides Gabe Vincent?

Having an absolutely amazing stretch while Kyle Lowry has been out and for much of the season, to be honest, he came out in the third quarter on Friday to shoot absolutely lights out.

Making six threes in the third period alone, Gabe Vincent would ride that performance all the way to a 23 point, four rebounds, and three assists night in the boxscore, on 8/15 from the floor and 7/12 from three. You absolutely love to see it with your leading guy out and especially because it highlights just how much Vincent has improved.

You also love that Duncan Robinson would continue his resurgent ways too, going for 16 points and two each of rebounds and assists, something desperately needed by his team and himself. The Miami Heat get right back to it on Saturday night.
