Wow, what an unlikely win. No KD & Harden, just what the Dr. ordered! Bam with a strong game. Dedmon double-double. Dragon breathing fire. Nunn hitting 5 threes, Ariza with 9 rebounds and 3 threes. Heat dominating the boards 53-38.
Good game OP.

Dedmon being out there rebounding & challenging in the paint might motivate Bam to do the same.

Ariza's performance has been a bit overlooked, but he was fantastic and is improving every day.

Dedmon was the real hero. Okpala was atrocious.

He was a +6 thou

he missed two WIDE OPEN corner 3s and 2 free throws. He should've been +14

I think he was fine defensively but he was also strictly used against Net's second unit which is a straight up G league team

He is my favorite player on the team. Super important player. His timing has been off. He has been off. Tough injury to come back from mentally and physically. With him running well, the team runs well.

Switch KZ with Yimmy and the 9 man rotation that was used today is what we should expect going forward the rest of the season (when healthy).

Yes but +/- doesn't tell you anything in 11mins of sample size. Dedmon was far more impactful (Clearly) but he's -7 in 15 mins.

If KZ plays like today again it doesn't matter if he's +125 he'll be benched for good (I'd hope). I'm sure coaching staff doesn't evaluate each players performance by +/- on the floor
