Wade turns up the heat on Mi­ami

The New Paper - - RACING -

Mi­ami Heat vet­eran Dwyane Wade ac­cused his team­mates of com­pla­cency af­ter a 105-90 loss to Or­lando Magic, which fol­lowed con­sec­u­tive wins over New Or­leans and Utah.

“We just re­laxed for some rea­son, like we got enough wins around here,” Wade said af­ter the Florida Derby yes­ter­day morn­ing (Sin­ga­pore time). “I thought our of­fence stunk.

“I would rather play Golden State than Or­lando be­cause we don’t play with the same fo­cus when we don’t play against a team we see on TV every night.”

Aaron Gor­don had 20 points with 13 re­bounds for Or­lando, one of six Magic play­ers to fin­ish in dou­ble fig­ures, as they im­proved their record to 12-12.

Jus­tise Winslow led the scor­ing for Mi­ami with 14 points off the bench.

A mis­er­able night for Mi­ami also saw Has­san White­side leave the bench with 40.5 sec­onds re­main­ing and head for the locker room.

Mi­ami coach Erik Spoel­stra played down the sig­nif­i­cance of White­side’s ap­par­ent tantrum.

“He’s prob­a­bly ex­tremely upset like we all are,” Spoel­stra said.

Mean­while, Myles Turner scored 18 points as the In­di­ana Pac­ers handed Jim Boylen a los­ing start with the Chicago Bulls.

The Bulls slipped to a 96-90 de­feat, an­chor­ing them firmly at the bot­tom of the Eastern Con­fer­ence stand­ings with a 5-20 record. – AFP
