Miami Heat get a rare win, and a rare night of fun, against the Rockets

Fun games for the Miami Heat have been few and far between, but that’s what we got in a fast-played game and a win over the Houston Rockets.

NBA: Houston Rockets at Miami Heat

James Harden finished with a 40-point triple double, but Goran Dragic (21 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists) almost had a triple-double of his own as Miami opened up a four-game home stand with a much-needed win.

Wes Goldberg (@wcgoldberg) and David Ramil (@dramil13) talk about the game, including Dragic’s performance and why Harden’s triple double isn’t as impressive as the box score suggests.
