Wade leads late charge, Miami tops Houston 90-85
Dwyane Wade scored 26 points, including a jumper that made it a two-possession game with 35.8 seconds remaining, and the Miami Heat rallied from a 13-point deficit to beat the Houston Rockets 90-85 in a preseason game Tuesday night.Wade either scored or set up Miami's final five field goals, helping the Heat to their third consecutive exhibition win.
Chris Bosh added 22 points in 35 minutes for the Heat, who went largely with starters against Houston backups in the final minutes. Mario Chalmers finished with 13 for Miami.
Dwight Howard had 19 points and nine rebounds in his most extended action of the preseason for the Rockets, while James Harden added 19 points.
Howard was 7 for 10 from the floor in 28 minutes. The Rockets led by 13 late in the first half and 11 at halftime, before sputtering offensively in the final two quarters.
With the game knotted at 79, Wade hit a 3-pointer -- the third such attempt by Miami on that particular possession -- and the Heat kept the lead the rest of the way.
Wade finished 11 for 17 from the floor, plus added six assists.
Donatas Motiejunas grabbed a game-high 10 rebounds for Houston, which finished with a 44-35 edge on the backboards.
The Heat were again without forward Josh McRoberts, who is working his way back from a toe injury and hasn't appeared in the preseason. Other players with likely rotation spots who were held out included Udonis Haslem, Justin Hamilton and James Ennis.
"It's getting a little bit more clear," coach Erik Spoelstra said of Miami's roster-selection process. "Every team is going through some kind of decision-making. We won't fully be able to make some of these decisions without Josh out here, but that's life in the NBA. That's my job to figure it out in the next week."
