Dwayne Wade hit 17-of-24 from the field for 45 points to lead his Miami Heat past the Houston Rockets 125-119 Wednesday night at the Toyota Center. The Heat have now won 16 of their last 17 contests, becoming the first team in NBA history to win 10 straight road games in a calendar month. Chris Bosh contributed 21 points as LeBron James controlled the tempo with 20 points and nine rebounds.
“We’re just a different team now,” said James. “We go out and understand that no matter what the course of the game may bring, we can always will ourselves to win, get enough stops, and make enough plays to win a basketball game.” Luis Scola and Kevin Martin scored a combined 41 for the Rockets in their losing efforts. Houston is next set to welcome in the Toronto Raptors Friday, December 31st. The Heat are scheduled to host the Golden State Warriors on New Year’s Day.
