Jokic, Beasley lead Nuggets past Heat 103-87

By Arnie Stapleton, Associated Press DENVER (AP) — The Denver Nuggets snapped a three-game skid with a 103-87 win over the Miami Heat on Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time) behind 23 points and 12 rebounds from Nikola Jokic and 20 points from Malik Beasley. The Nuggets swept the season series from the Heat for the first time since 2008-09 and improved to 18-1 when holding opponents under 100 points. This marked the first time they did that since a 105-99 win at New Orleans on Jan. 30 (Feb. 1, PHL time). Denver pulled away in the third quarter to avoid matching a season-worst four-game skid it had in November before recovering in a big way to soar into the upper echelon on the Western Conference. The Nuggets struggled with three-point defense in their losses at Detroit, Brooklyn and Philadelphia last week, yielding a combined 48 percent success rate from long range in their East Coast swing. And the Heat were coming off a heartbreaking two-point loss at Golden State on Sunday (Monday, PHL time) in which they sank 18 three-pointers. "I hope they got all their makes last night and left that in San Francisco," Nuggets coach Michael Malone cracked before tip-off. The Heat did go cold from long range, finishing 9-of-23 for a 27-percent clip. The Nuggets regained their shooting touch, sinking 16 three-pointers including four in a 16-0 run they used to build a 75-57 lead with Will Barton and Jamal Murray each hitting two from behind the arc. Jokic had a pair of three-pointers as he scored Denver's final eight points before the break, helping the Nuggets take a 54-49 halftime lead. Justise Winslow led Miami with 15 points. VINDICATION Heat coach Erik Spoelstra didn't want to harp on the Heat's 120-118 loss at Golden State a night earlier after the NBA said the Warriors' Kevin Durant should have been called for a discontinued dribble in his team's final possession. Golden State made a pair of free throws on that possession, the final points of the game. The league, in its Last Two Minute Report that is released after close games, said it reviewed multiple video angles to determine that Durant's dribble was not interrupted by the ball making inadvertent contact with the foot or shin of Winslow and "a discontinued dribble should have been called on Durant." The NBA also opted not to fine Spoelstra for his postgame comments about the officiating and he emphasized that he wasn't blaming officials for Miami's loss. "It's a double-dribble. Everybody can see it," Spoelstra said after the game. "Those are tough calls to make, but everybody saw it. It's right there in front of everybody. That should be a violation and you can't miss those calls. But we had our chances. Like I said, it was back and forth. The officials — so let's be clear about it, so I do not get fined — that's not why we lost." TIP-INS Heat: Miami, the league's only team with more wins on the road than at home, fell to 14-14 on the road. ... Spoelstra looked at the silver lining of facing the Western Conference's top two teams on back-to-back nights, saying before the game: "What do you want as a competitor? You want to be challenged, you want to be pushed. You want to find out what you're about collectively as a team. Can we bounce back? We've had two tough losses on the road. I prefer these times where you have a tough loss and can bounce back 24 hours later, rather than wait and stew and brew." Nuggets: The Nuggets honored the late Irv Brown during a first-quarter timeout with a video tribute to the former University of Colorado baseball coach, NCAA referee and longtime Denver sports broadcaster who died Feb. 3. ... In the first quarter, Mason Plumlee and Torrey Craig both missed breakaway dunks. ... The Nuggets improved to 24-4 at home. UP NEXT Heat: Visit Dallas on Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time). Nuggets: Host the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time)......»»

Erik Spoelstra on Kai Sotto: 'It s all about development'

Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra is just as excited as any other Pinoy basketball fan about the continued growth of Gilas Cadet Kai Sotto. Speaking to ABS-CBN North America correspondent TJ Manotoc, Spoelstra described Sotto's emergence on the international scene as "exciting," and added, "I hope it's a sign of great things to come. "You know, basketball is so big in the Philippines, and I just want everyone to be able to see that and to experience the passion," the Heat mentor added. "The thing that would help that quickest would be getting an NBA player." While Fil-Am Jordan Clarkson continues to be productive as a reserve for the Cleveland Cavaliers, most Pinoys are still looking for a homegrown talent to reach the Association, and many feel the 7'1" Sotto represents the country's best bet thus far. "Hopefully he's getting the right guidance, people that have purity about it and [are] not trying to get something out of it" said Spoelstra. "It's about development, wherever that may be. Over there [in the Philippines] is great, but eventually, if he's going to make a dream of coming over here, it probably helps that at some point, whenever that is, to come over here [the US] and get a little more exposure." The Ateneo Blue Eaglet is set to be named the UAAP Juniors Division's MVP, behind per-game averages of 25.1 points, 13.9 rebounds, 3.4 assists, and 2.6 blocks. The defending champs have an 11-3 record, good for the second seed and a twice-to-beat advantage, as the tournament's Final Four kicks off on Saturday. The 16-year-old 7'1" center is also a fixture near the top of the NBTC UAAP 24, and has taken part in scrimmages against international teams with the Gilas Pilipinas national squad......»»

Cousins’ Late Free Throws Lead Warriors past Heat 120-118

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) --- A lackluster start for Golden State turned into a frantic finish and another win thanks to a big shooting night from Kevin Durant. Durant hit a game-tying 3-pointer in the final minute as part of a 39-point night and DeMarcus Cousins made two free throws with 5.4 seconds to play that helped the Warriors cap a comeback from a 19-point deficit in the first quarter to beat the Miami Heat 120-118 on Sunday. "We started off sluggish," Durant said. "They made shots, they were excited to play against us. We treated it like it was a Sunday walk in the park. ... After a while we just locked in." Durant was a big reason why, scoring 11 straight points for Golden S...Keep on reading: Cousins’ Late Free Throws Lead Warriors past Heat 120-118.....»»
