MIAMI — Ray Allen did his best to rescue the Miami Heat against Denver on Friday night but fell short.
The veteran sharpshooter again was on the mark Sunday, when he helped rally the Heat past the Houston Rockets.
Allen scored a season-high 25 points on 7-of-11 shooting — 4 of 6 from 3-point range — to help the Heat earn a 113-104 victory against the Rockets in amid a playoff-like atmosphere at AmericanAirlines Arena.
Houston had beaten Miami 106-103 on March 4 to begin the Heat’s winless three-game losing streak. Miami then returned home to defeat Washington before losing to Brooklyn on Wednesday night and Denver on Friday night.
After trailing by five points with 6:04 remaining, Miami went on an 14-5 run. Allen scored 10 of the Heats points in that spurt, and his 3-pointer with 2:55 to go gave Miami a 106-102 advantage.
