The Miami Heat came into Wednesday night’s game on the second night of back-to-back scheduled games. Heading into this one against the Sacramento Kings, they would have the chance to complete the counter-sweep in their mini-revenge tour after beating the Warriors on the previous night.

Losing to Golden State to end October as well, this would be a shot to avenge the defeat to the Kings that followed that one. They would have to do it without Jimmy Butler though, as he would sit this game out with hip tightness.

But that didn’t matter, as Kyle Lowry decided he would come out and have the best game of his entire Miami Heat tenure. Setting himself on pace to score 50 points on the night, he would begin the game with a 12-point opening period to help set the tone without his starting cohort in the lineup.

On the second night of back-to-back games, the Miami Heat would had a chance to avenge another recent defeat. And they would, beating the Kings, 110-107.

Though he wouldn’t quite get there, his 17-point first half and huge second-half shot-making, en route to 22 points, seven dimes, and five rebounds on the night, would be crucial to the Heat’s victory in the end.

For example, as the game wound down to the final moments, Lowry would pull a vet move by going for the 2-for-1 opportunity, nailing his jumper to give the Heat a two-point lead. The Kings’ Domantas Sabonis would then sink two free throws to tie the ball game at 107.

And that’s when the biggest shot of the game happened. Just a night after only playing 10 minutes in the win over Golden State due to being poked in the eye, Tyler Herro would take the Miami Heat home with this huge make.

You don’t always want Tyler Herro taking those shots, you have to be fair, as he and the Miami Heat would benefit from him allowing the ball, his teammates, and thus the defense to move a little bit before taking what he believes to be his first good look at a shot on any given possession.

However, moments to create, to take, and to make these kinds of big shots are also why you give the guy 120 million dollars. He wins the night and so does Miami, which is all it’s ever really about.

Now, they’ll look to keep building on the last two victories, wiping the board clean on those defeats to end October. Friday sees them have the chance to keep up a good November thus far as well, heading to the Gainbridge Fieldhouse to take on the Indiana Pacers.

Hopefully, they’ll keep the good times rolling.
