MIAMI (AP) – Hassan Whiteside tied a career high with 24 points and grabbed 13 rebounds, Dwyane Wade scored 22 points and the Miami Heat kept their playoff hopes alive with a 100-93 win over the Orlando Magic on Monday night.
Luol Deng scored 14 points and Goran Dragic finished with 13 points, eight assists and seven rebounds for the Heat, who still need a win at Philadelphia on Wednesday and help in three other games to make the postseason for the seventh straight year.
Miami had a 22-point lead whittled down to six in the final minute. But Deng made a 3-pointer with 32.6 seconds left to snap a streak of nine straight Miami misses, and the Heat held on.
Victor Oladipo scored 30 points for the Magic.
