“We got a lot of fight. We fight each and every game, even though we’re down, we give ourselves a chance to win a game, y sabes, we finish stronger,” said Eric Bledsoe, quien agregó 21 points for the Clippers.
Bam Adebayo had a season-high 30 puntos y 11 rebounds for the Heat and, despite the loss, was impress with Lowry’s display.
“I like that Kyle. I like that type of Kyle,” Adebayo told reporters after the game. “I like that aggressive Kyle. I like the way he got to his sports. I feed off that.”
After the loss, Lowry said that the Heat’s recent struggles — Miami lost their third straight game, and fourth of their last five — as motivation for his blistering fourth quarter, but it came up just short.
“I was trying to just find a way to get a win,” Lowry said. “I had opportunity, I attacked a lot more. And just trying to be a little bit more assertive on my team, but it doesn’t matter because we still lost the game.”
The win lifts the Clippers to 7-4 on the season, and sees them back amongst the West’s best, made all the more impressive given their 1-4 start to the season.
