First Star

Hassan Whiteside (MIA) 20.7

Whiteside finally got a start for Miami at center, and didn't disappoint. He earned his 41st double-double with 18 points and 15 rebounds (two offensive). He shot five-of-seven from the field and made all eight of his foul shots, finishing his night at plus-18. In 28:22, he also had two blocked shots and a steal. He leads the Heat with 47 Five Star appearances and with 15 First Stars.

I'm still going to come out here and play the same. - Whiteside, on starting versus coming off the bench

Second Star

Dwyane Wade (MIA) 20.2

Wade still leads Whiteside in the overall Five Stars standings by a small margin, and makes his 43rd overall appearance this season in the series. He played 23:56 altogether, scoring 17 points on seven-of-nine shooting, with three rebounds, three assists and three steals. He made all three of his free throw attempts for the night, earning a plus-8 rating.

We're going to go, we're going to play two games, we'll go out there and compete and whatever happens after that happens. If we start at home it's going to be great for this team. If we don't, it's going to be a great challenge. But either way we're going to be preparing for the playoffs. - Wade

Third Star

Goran Dragic (MIA) 19.6

Dragic played a game-high 35:40 for Miami, scoring 19 points on eight-of-12 shooting. He missed his only three point shot, but sunk all three of his free throws. He also had six assists, a steal, a blocked shot, and a plus-16 rating in his 30th overall appearance.

He sunk two-of-four from outside and one-of-one from the stripe, with five helpers, two boards, a steal, and a minus-16 rating.

We were off from the beginning of the game on the defensive end of the floor. We weren't sharp at all, really in any aspect but we were still hanging in the game. - Magic coach Scott Skiles
