Wesley Matthews hits two huge threes late to help Blazers beat Heat (VIDEO)

Jan 11, 2013, 2:29 AM EDT

The Heat looked as though they would have little trouble with the Blazers, getting out to a solid start and a 52-39 lead at the end of the first half.

But a 38-point second half doomed Miami’s chances, and the team found itself blowing a 12-point fourth quarter lead while on the wrong end of a 24-10 run over the game’s final 8:08 in Portland, falling by a final of 92-90.

LeBron James and Dwyane Wade combined for just 33 points, and while Nicolas Batum and LaMarcus Aldridge did the heavy lifting with 28 and 20 points respectively for the Blazers, Wesley Matthews was the one that dragged them to victory with these two huge three-pointers in the game’s final minute.

The Heat are now just 7-8 on the road this season.

    Nicolas “Nut Shot” Batum had a big three in this one, too. Heat, please let Chalmers take all your last shots, I love to see it. He’s not in Kansas anymore.

    “Heartbreaking Heat loss for LAKERS fans”? Dude, LAKERS fans couldn’t care less about a franchise with TWO titles to its name. The Heat aren’t the LAKERS rivals, the Celtics are. The Heat are a flash in the pan. That prediction of 7 rings looks foolish right about now.

      Umm. I’m pretty sure you completely missed the point of that post.

        He missed the point of the “not one, not two…” rant as well.

        I’m pretty sure he misses the point of any post that doesn’t involve orally draining Lakers jockstraps of their sweat.

      The Prediction of Kobe’s Sixth ring and beating the Bulls record 72-10 looks sooooo much foolish right about now

    Perhaps I did…maybe you could explain it to me.

    @cramsinned
    Kobe never predicted 72 wins or six rings. But we ALL heard LBJ predict 7 or 8 titles for the Heat. Had James Harden played to his potential the Heat would still be working on one title. The only number that matters to LAKERS fans is number 17, as in seventeen franchise titles. In case you didn’t know, right now we have 16. The Heat will never catch the LAKERS. And, btw, enjoy LeBron for the next couple of seasons.

    I think its about time this blazer squad start getting some credit. I’m hoping thru can add some veteran depth at the trade deadline because starters will b worn out by march but stotts is doing a great job with the talent they have. Rip city baby!
