The Miami Heat of the National Basketball Association (NBA) succeeded in escaping the losing streak by beating Charlotte Hornets with ace Jimmy Butler.
Miami beat Charlotte 117-112 in the 2022-23 NBA regular league at FTX Arena in Miami, Florida on the 11th (Korea Standard Time).
Miami, which has recently lost two consecutive games, has secured its fifth win (7 losses) of the season, setting the stage for a mid-range leap forward.
In Miami, Jimmy Butler played a triple-double with 35 points, 10 rebounds, and 8 assists, contributing to the victory. Snake Adebayo also helped with 18 points and 14 rebounds.
In Charlotte, Kelly Ubre Jr. scored 29 points, and Terry Rozier scored 22 points but failed to break the losing streak.
Charlotte, the lowest in the Eastern Conference (15th place, 3 wins and 10 losses), fell into a swamp of 7 consecutive losses.
Miami, which led 58-50 in the first half, gained momentum by leading by 15 points at one point in the third quarter.
He was briefly chased by Charlotte’s counterattack in the middle of the third quarter, but Butler, Duncan Robinson, and Dwayne Deadman kept the lead by scoring.
Miami, which faced the fourth quarter with an 85-73 lead, was expected to win a comfortable victory.
However, Charlotte’s general offensive took place in the second half of the game. PJ Washington and Jailen McDaniels successively attacked Miami, embarrassing Miami, and the fourth quarter ended with a 104-104 tie.
Miami’s backing was a little stronger in overtime.
Miami, which lost its lead to Charlotte at the beginning of extra time but did not lose its concentration, took the lead again with 113-111, with Adebayo scoring two free throws a minute and a half before the end.
Since then, Charlotte, who has been chased by time, has rarely penetrated the opponent’s defense, and Miami, where Gabe Vincent widened the gap with a free throw just before the end, won by five points.
