Jimmy Butler--who has played in fewer than half of Miami's game this season--recorded a 27-point triple double to lead the Heat to a 101-94 win against the Rockets in Houston on Thursday. It was a much-needed clutch performance from the team's emotional leader. No surprise there. More surprisingly, Max Strus--who averages fewer than six points a game--chipped in with 21 off the bench as Miami extended its win streak to four, improving to 11-14 on the season.
