Jimmy Butler leads Miami Heat to rout against Memphis Grizzlies | NBA News

by archysport

Jimmy Butler scored 27 points, Tyler Herro added 22 as the Miami Heat used a strong shooting performance to rout the Memphis Grizzlies 129-103.

Duncan Robinson and Kyle Lowry scored 15 points each. Lowry added eight assists on a night where the Heat scored 21 3-pointers, one short of the franchise record set last May in Milwaukee.

Saturday night’s performance was particularly satisfying for Robinson, who has struggled from outside the arc this season. Entering the game, Robinson was shooting 28% of the 3-point range, making only 12 of 43 shots. That included a 2-of-11 distance win in Friday night’s win over Charlotte.

He made 5 of 10 beyond-arc shots against Memphis and looked more to his old self (he shot 44.8% for his career).

Ja Morant and De’Anthony Melton each had 20 points for the Grizzlies. Desmond Bane finished with 17 points and Kyle Anderson scored 13.

During the three quarters, the Heat continued to shoot and do. The 56 percent shooting at that point included 18 of 28 3-pointers and a lead that had grown to 26 points. That proved to be enough for Miami’s fifth win of the first six games.

Udonis Haslem got his first minutes of the season, officially making his 19th NBA season – all with the Heat.

He is now the fifth player in league history to appear in at least 19 seasons, all with one team, joining Dallas ‘Dirk Nowitzki, Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant, San Antonio’s Tim Duncan and John Stockton of Utah.

Haslem won the last basket of the night for the Heat, a basket that caused his teammates to rise from their seats on the bench in celebration.
