Josh
Richardson
A new look on the court and some really old looks on the sidelines were exactly what the Miami Heat needed. Finally, they won at home. Josh Richardson (6'6''-G-93, college: Tennessee) scored 20 points, Dwyane Wade added 18 and the Heat wasted most of a 31-point lead before hanging on to beat the New Orleans Pelicans 106-101 on Friday night. Miami had the massive lead by the midpoint of the second quarter, then saw the margin cut to three in the final moments before surviving and snapping a six-game home losing streak. "We can walk out of here with a different feeling," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. It started with a different look. Miami's black "Vice" uniforms, whose unveiling coincided with the start of the home slide, were ditched in a decision that was made shortly before game time. The Heat donned red uniforms instead, calling it "an organizational decision." Plus, as part of the recent NBA tributes to late broadcaster Craig Sager and his unique sense of fashion, Spoelstra and his assistants wore their outlandish best. Spoelstra wore a blue and white plaid coat - a nod to both Sager and Dr. Jack Ramsay - while assistant Dan Craig went with a leathery look and Juwan Howard wore sneakers that loosely resembled the sort of colorful jackets Sager made famous. "Let's talk about our head coach: I thought he looked great," said Wade, the Heat expert on fashion. "I thought it was great that coach always preaches to players to get out of their comfort zone, and tonight he had to get out of his comfort zone. It was amazing." Anthony Davis (6'10''-C-93, college: Kentucky) finished with 41 points for the Pelicans, who got 21 from Jrue Holiday and 15 from Nikola Mirotic (6'10''-F/C-91). New Orleans has never rallied from more than 23 down to win a game, but made this one far more interesting than Miami wanted. "When you get yourself down 30 and start mounting a comeback, you have to have a perfect storm," Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. "And it just doesn't exist. It's really disappointing because we competed like crazy from the second quarter on." The Heat led by 20 after one quarter - their biggest lead at home through 12 minutes since Jan. 30, 2007. The lead was 52-21 early in the second, and by then Richardson had 14 points, Wade had 11 and the Pelicans had missed all 11 of their 3-point attempts. Richardson's 3-pointer with 2:56 left in the half pushed Miami's lead to 59-28. And then things got interesting. New Orleans needed only 97 seconds for a 12-0 run that cut the deficit to 19, and the Pelicans went into the locker room down 61-41. Davis then scored the Pelicans' first 11 points of the second half with a jumper, two 3-pointer and three free throws after getting fouled on a 3 to get his team within 65-52. The Pelicans kept charging, but Miami never surrendered the lead. "We know what we have to do," Davis said. "We know we have to come out better instead of playing uphill."

Haynes reports that Lillard and the Blazers will likely agree to terms on a super-max extension this summer after the point guard becomes eligible.
