Two heavyweight match-ups stood out on Saturday's ten game schedule in the NBA. The Nets and the Heat put their five-game winning streaks on the line in South Beach while a "full-strength" Spurs squad looked to redeem themselves against the Western Confernce leading Grizzlies.
Miami rallied back from a fourteen point deficit thanks to some smothering defense. LeBron James finished with 21 points, nine rebounds and six assists. The Heat held the Nets to thirty second-half points and rode Dwyane Wade's game-high 34 to their sixth straight win, 102-89. Coach Erik Spoelstra was happy to see Wade get back into gear.
Heading west, Gregg Popovich and the controversial Spurs gave it everything they had as they beat the division leading Grizzlies in overtime, 99-95. "Fresh" stars Tim Duncan and Tony Parker combined for 57 points, 19 rebounds and 10 assists in the victory. Pop praised Duncan after the game.
