MIAMI (AP) — Luol Deng made 11 of 14 shots and scored 29 points, Goran Dragic added 23 points and 10 assists, and the Miami Heat set a season high for scoring in a 119-108 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night.
Dwyane Wade scored 18 for the Heat, who stayed in the No. 7 spot in the Eastern Conference. Hassan Whiteside added 12 points and 14 rebounds for Miami, which shot 55 percent.
Hollis Thompson scored 22 points for Philadelphia, which got 18 from Nerlens Noel, 16 from Robert Covington, 12 from Henry Sims and 11 from Isaiah Canaan.
It was a good-news day all around for Miami. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said before the game that Chris Bosh — who has blood clots on a lung, a season-ending issue — will be going home “soon” from a hospital where he’s been treated since late last week.
