Instant Replay: Warriors come alive in fourth to fend off Heat


OAKLAND -- The Warriors never quite shifted their high-powered offense into overdrive, so they leaned on their defense to knock off the reeling Miami Heat 107-95 Tuesday night at Oracle Arena.

With Klay Thompson given the night off, the Warriors turned to All-Stars Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry to provide most of the offense, and they combined for 52 points. Durant put in 28 points, Curry 24.

Draymond Green tossed in 13 points and Ian Clark came off the bench to add 10.

The Warriors (33-6) spent much of the first half trailing before cranking up the defense in the third quarter, holding Miami to 14 points on 25-percent (5-of-20) shooting.
