Golden State Warriors Stun LeBron James And The Miami Heat In Overtime

"Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade had advice for Warriors forward Dorell Wright, his good friend who had struggled mightily on offense.

"He needs to shoot more," Wade said. "Not against us, but against other teams."

Wright listened to part of that advice. Tuesday against Miami, he took a season-high 15 shots. He scored eight points in overtime to lift the Warriors to a 111-106 upset of the Heat, snapping Golden State's five-game losing streak.

The losing streak was largely due to Golden State's offensive struggles. No Warrior was struggling more than Wright, who came into the game averaging 5.8 points on 32.7 percent shooting.

But Tuesday, he knocked down six 3-pointers, two in overtime. He scored five straight points to put the Warriors up 107-104 with 1:06 left.

Wade answered with a jumper. But guard Monta Ellis -- who finished with 22 points -- put Golden State ahead 109-106 with a pull-up over Miami forward Shane Battier."
