Five Stars: Warriors 111, Heat 103

New, comments

Far from embarrassing themselves, the Heat hung tough until near the end before dropping the eight-point decision to the Golden State Warriors. Dwyane Wade and Tyler Johnson feature in our Five Stars.

First Star

Draymond Green (GSW) 21.3 (71.76)

Green, Golden State's starting power forward and a four-year veteran, hit eight-of-14 shots from the field, missing both three point shot attempts and making six-of-11 from the line for 22 points. In 35:37, he posted a minus-7 rating (along with the rest of Golden State's starting lineup), while also collecting a dozen rebounds (three offensive), six assists and a steal.

Second Star

Stephen Curry (GSW) 20.8 (66.44)

Curry, Golden State's two-time all star point guard and seven-year vet, led all players with 37:34 and with 31 points. He made 11-of-27 overall from the field, sinking four-of-11 from outside and five-of-six from the stripe, pitching in six assists, two rebounds, and a steal. He finished the game with a minus-3 rating.

The starters, we played well, but didn't sustain. They came in and took control of the game and got us to the finish line. - Curry

Third Star

Dwyane Wade (MIA) 19.7 (72.40)

Wade, in his 13th season, makes his 23rd Five Star appearance of the season, leading the Heat with 20 points.

In 32:39, he finished with a plus-2 rating, which was the only positive mark for any starting player from either team.

Fourth Star

Tyler Johnson (MIA) 12.7 (54.72)

Johnson, Miami's second-year backup guard, came off the bench to score 13 points in 27:51. He sunk six-of-seven shots and made his only free throw, with five assists, three rebounds, and a Heat-high plus-4 rating.

Fifth Star

Klay Thompson (GSW) 12.4 (43.07)

Thompson, Curry's backcourt partner now in his fifth year, played 34:33 and scored 17 points for the defending World Champs. He made six-of-15 shots and half of his four three-point shot attempts, sinking all three of his foul shots. He added seven rebounds, two assists, and two steals, finishing at minus-3.
