Josh Richardson News

I feel like this trade would solve so many issues for us. Pat Riley can 't seem to get out of his own way, so what I am trying to do is give him picks to swap for a big trade they can attempt at a later date. We would be able to get two role players at a decent cost to compliment our core. We will

A new look on the court and some really old looks on the sidelines were exactly what the Miami Heat needed. Josh Richardson scored 20 points, Dwyane Wade added 18 and the Heat wasted most of a 31-point lead before hanging on to beat the New Orleans Pelicans 106-101 on Friday night. Miami had the massive lead by the midpoint of the second quarter, then saw the margin cut to three in the final moments before surviving and snapping a six-game home losing streak.

Josh Richardson took the last pass from Dwyane Wade, then wound up taking a wide-open 3-pointer that would have been a game-winner. Like everything else this season for Miami, the last shot didn't go according to plan. Richardson's shot bounced off the front of the rim with less than 2 seconds remaining, time ran out on the Heat and the Atlanta Hawks - who wasted every bit of a 19-point, second-half lead - escaped from Miami with a 115-113 win on Tuesday night.

Miami is one of the few teams in the NBA that can identify with the Bulls playmaking woes. Coming into Friday night's game, the Heat and Bulls were 23rd and 24th in assists per game respectively, and things won't change anytime soon with both teams' starting point guards being out. Miami has used potential Most Improved Player of the Year Josh Richardson at the one to compensate for Goran Dragic's absence.

Erik Spoelstra gave the ball to Josh Richardson. Richardson scored 12 of his 27 points in the fourth quarter and Hassan Whiteside had 18 points and 10 rebounds to help the Miami Heat beat the Chicago Bulls 103-96 on Friday night. Spoelstra decided to go without Dwyane Wade in the closing minutes.
