Dwyane Wade scored 25 points and Jason Williams had eight of his 13 in the final quarter as Miami rallied from a late eight-point deficit at home. Wade added eight rebounds and seven assists.

The win gave Heat Coach Stan Van Gundy a 3-2 lead in the sibling series against his brother, the Rockets' Jeff Van Gundy. Neither brother had his full complement of superstars: The Heat is still without Shaquille O'Neal (sprained right ankle) and the Rockets didn't have Tracy McGrady (strained back muscle).
