Last Matchup on 11/02/2019: Warriors 120 – Heat 118
Warriors have started their road trip with a win against the Hornets, and now they pay a visit to the South Beach to face off against the Miami Heat. It was a great matchup when these teams met at the Oracle Arena a little over two weeks ago. Heat gave a fierce competition to the defending champs, but Cousins hit a couple game-winning free throws to secure a win.
Durant led the Warriors squad with a 39 points performance with Curry hitting 25 and Kaly 29 points. Whereas from the Heat, Josh Richardson scored 37 points along with Dion Waiters and Justice Winslow hitting 24 and 22 points respectively. Because of late minutes turnovers from the Warriors and steals from the Heat, it was a tie match in the last seconds of the game. But Demarcus Cousins was fouled under the rim, and he hit both free throws to give Warriors a win.
