Miami Heat and GB forward Luol Deng scored a season-high 30 points and the Heat stayed perfect against Dallas since the 2011 NBA Finals with a 105-96 victory on Sunday night.
The Heat have won seven straight regular-season games against Dallas since the Mavericks took three in a row in the finals to capture their first championship.
Deng was the key factor in the win, going 13 of 19 from the field (4 of 9 from behind the arc) with five rebounds and four assists as the ball-moving Heat shot 55 percent to 42 percent for Dallas.
“We still have a lot to figure out,” Deng said. “Their game plan today, they doubled Bosh and D-Wade, and we did a good job of moving the ball and had a lot of open jumpers.”
Deng also badly outplayed Dallas’ big free-agent pickup in Chandler Parsons, who had just four points and is 2 of 20 from the field the past two games.
