Blazers win 10th straight

The Blazers let it get dramatic late, but they've pushed their winning streak to 10 games after beating the Heat. Damian Lillard was incredible with 32 points and some clutch shots at the end to put a stop to the Heat's comeback.

Jusuf Nurkic showed up for Portland as well. He scored 27 points and pulled down 16 rebounds in a dominant performance. Nobody on Miami had an answer for him. He also had a pretty sick dunk.

Spurs hit 10th place

The Spurs' loss to the Rockets has pushed them down to 10th place in the Western Conference standings.
