Miami Heat recorded a 101-91 Christmas Day win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, with Dwyane Wade and Luol Deng combining for 56 points.
The GB forward finished with 25 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists in 40 minutes, matching up against LeBron James – who made a losing return to South Beach, despite his 30 point haul.
“This game meant a lot to a lot of people here,” Deng said post-game via PalmBeachPost. “It’s great to come up with a win.
“I’ve gotta be the best I can for this team. I can’t think of who was here before or whatever.”
