Jarrett Jack found Draymond Green under the rim with under a second left to beat the Heat 97-95. The Warriors scored the game's last six points.

The Golden State Warriors scored the game's last six points to put to good use outstanding games by David Lee, Jarrett Jack and Klay Thompson.

Rookie Draymond Green slipped inside on the baseline as Shane Battier over-helped on a perimeter screen off the ball and Jack found him under the rim for a layup with 0:09 seconds left in the game. Jack, guarded by LeBron James, made the right decision, instead of rising up for a contested 3-pointer over the outstretched arms of the league MVP.

Jack scored 20 points on 9-of-14 shooting from the field with four assists and four rebounds for Golden State (15-7). Lee got 22 points and 13 rebounds and Thompson dropped 27 points on 21 shots.

Prior to Green's layup, Miami got two good looks from beyond the arc, but Ray Allen and Shane Battier missed 3-pointers.

Miami was led by James' 31 point night, but he had a rather modest five assists and three rebounds by his standards.

The Heat (14-6) survived a scare in the second quarter when Dwyane Wade left the game after consecutive hits on one play to the head area, but he started the third quarter. Wade finished with 14 points, five assists and three steals.

Chris Bosh had 21 points and led the Heat with 13 rebounds.
