Winderman's view: Heat 99, Bobcats 98--South Florida Sun Sentinel
But did Norris Cole really need to contest that late Kemba Walker 3-pointer with the Heat up four?

-- More than anything, survival.
-- Erik Spoelstra this time closed with two point guards, with Mario Chalmers and Cole playing in tandem.

-- Chalmers had his moments late.
Bosh's 3s bring Heat back from 14 down to escape Bobcats--South Florida Sun Sentinel
Guard Kemba Walker led the Bobcats with 27 points, actually with a chance to tie late, when he was fouled on a 3-point attempt by Heat guard Norris Cole with seven-tenths of a second to play and the Bobcats down four.

Walker missed the 3-pointer, preventing the needed four-point play, made his first two free throws, but then also converted the third attempt that he was trying to miss.

So with a bit of good fortune and solid late defense, the Heat held on.
Spoelstra also found a different way, playing point guards Mario Chalmers and Cole in tandem at the finish.

"The energy changed," Spoelstra said of that combination. "The minutes those two played together have been good."
