What Had Happened Was: 1/18/17

Oh, you donโ€™t know? We got you.

GAME. BLOUSES.

The Miami Heat defeated the Houston Rockets, 109-103, on Tuesday night with a helping hand from just about everyone. Goran Dragic led the way with 21 points, Dion Waiters added 17, Hassan Whiteside had 14 points and 15 boards, and off the bench, Wayne Ellington finished with 18, while Tyler Johnson and James Johnson had 15 apiece.

And the Heat needed every man on deck to help out, because Rockets guard James Harden brought the heat with 40 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists, his 13th triple-double of the season.
