Jimmy Butler and Kyle Lowry ensure in the “money time” in Chicago | NBA

by archysport

Miami did not show up in the best possible form in Chicago, blaming Tyler Herro in particular. But the Floridians did perfectly, relying in particular on his official replacement, Gabe Vincent (20 points), X factor of the meeting and who accompanied Kyle Lowry (19 points) and Jimmy Butler (18 points) to overthrow DeMar DeRozan (28 points) and his gang.

Miami has long been in the lead, notably going to +9 in the first quarter on two 3-point baskets from Caleb Martin and Duncan Robinson (16-25). But Chicago was able to stay in the game, until this rapprochement at the end of the third quarter which heralded a cannonball final.

Using fast play, the Caruso-DeRozan tandem had allowed Chicago to take control 12 minutes from the end (74-72). The Bulls even went to +6 as the United Center then warmed up with an alley-oop baseline between Alex Caruso and former Heat (80-75) Derrick Jones Jr.

But it was Miami that finished strong, especially thanks to its 3-point address. Gabe Vincent led the way, finding the twine four times from afar. Kyle Lowry took over with two missiles behind the arc before handing over to Jimmy Butler who was happy to kill the suspense one minute from time on a basket halfway (94-102) . Miami ultimately won 107-104, signing their 13th win of the season in 20 games to overtake the Bulls in the standings.

WHAT YOU MUST REMEMBER

– Miami does without its Herro. Miami needed another offensive threat in the absence of Tyler Herro, and so it was Gabe Vincent who raised his level of play to allow the Floridians to go the distance, including a side “clutch” in the last act.

– A final as a final bouquet. Chicago started the fourth quarter with full confidence, even going up to +6 at the start of the period, but quickly became disillusioned with the 3-point rain that fell on their defense. In total, the Lowry-Vincent pair slammed 7 3-point baskets, half of the exterior missiles returned by the Heat over the entire match. Enough to disgust the locals.

Jimmy Butler enchaîne. Coincidentally, the Heat star played two games against two of his former teams. After Minnesota, where he had delivered the minimum union in a setback that was difficult, “Jimmy Buckets” was more complete, with his 18 points, 4 rebounds, 5 assists, mastery in the final sprint but also his 5 interceptions that counted on arrival.

TOPS/FLOPS

Gabe Vincent. Top scorer of his team, the Nigerian international responded when Erik Spoelstra needed him, playing his biggest game time and having a big impact in the last act. As Chicago began to gain confidence, Gabe Vincent sent four 3-point missiles that cooled the assembly.

Kyle Lowry. He too had come through in Minneapolis and recovered well in this game. The point guard was also invaluable in the last act with three missiles behind the arc which helped to undermine the morale of the Bulls.

Nikola Vucevic. The Montenegrin has accustomed us to being a dominant player in the league since his years in Orlando. However, the Chicago pivot, which has a very secondary role in the Chicago attack, has not yet been level tonight, particularly in attack. His 13 rebounds did not weigh enough, while the pivot delivered one of the worst games of his season with 7 points at 3/9 shooting, 0/3 from distance and 3 lost balls.
