The Heat melted the Orlando Magic in an overtime road game Saturday in a style the team has perfected like no other, middling record, 32-25 aside.
No other team has engaged the “clutch” play quite this way.
Saturday marked the Heat’s ninth game out of the last 10 that victory has been decided by less than five points. Of the Heat’s 57 games this season, a league-leading 40 have been decided with the score standing within five points in the last five minutes, Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel reports.
This high-wire act continues Monday in Miami against the Nuggets.
