MIAMI -- The Golden State Warriors, perhaps the hottest team in the NBA when one considers that their consecutive win streak has been accomplished exclusively on the road, did it again Wednesday night, beating the Miami Heat, 97-95. The Warriors, who extended their win streak to five games, got a winning layup by Draymond Green with nine-tenths of a second left. The Heat's LeBron James missed a turnaround jumper at the buzzer to complete the Warriors' win. James finished with a game-high 31 points. On the winning shot, backup point guard Jarrett Jack, guarded by James at the top of the key, passed to the rookie, Green, who was wide open. The Warriors (15-7) have won eight of their past nine games. Guard Klay Thompson, who led the Warriors with 27 points, has ties to Miami. He is the son of former NBA forward Mychal Thompson, who played his high school ball at Miami Jackson. The Heat (14-6) lost for just the second time this season at home, where they have 10 wi...

Did this ref intentionally keep the ball inbounds for the Heat with his foot?

Looks like he lent the Heat a helping hand…I mean foot. Miami and Atlanta met up Monday night in a matchup between the Southeast Division’s top two teams.  The Heat walked away with the 101-92 LeBron James’ game high 27 points, Dwyane Wade’s 26 points, and some fancy footwork by referee Karl Lane.

LeBron James Tries Defending Old Man Wade, Makes Matters Worse

Dwyane Wade is old, well, he’s 30 but he’s playing old. His athleticism has declined and he’s lost a step.
