Miami makes history by winning Rockets 46-14 in the first quarter


Historic first quarter lived this Sunday in Miami. Heat prevailed in the opening period to Rockets by 46-14 to get the third biggest advantage in the first quarter of an NBA game since the possession clock was established in the 1954-1955 course.

Only two games exceeded that advantage in the first quarter. The biggest difference was recorded in the Lakers-Kings of 1987 in which the Angels won 40-4 in the first act; the second dates from 1972, when Baltimore Bullets won Kansas City Kings 45-12.



The Miami thing was especially unexpected because the leading team, Rockets, is one of the most powerful in the current NBA.

At the end of the game, Miami won 129-100 after acquiring a maximum advantage of 41 points in the second quarter (59-18) and going to rest with a score of 71-46.

Miami had Duncan Robinson in 23 points and 7 triples, Meyers Leonard in 21 points and Jimmy Butler, the real architect of that incredible first quarter, with 18 points, 9 assists, 7 rebounds, and 4 steals. James Johnson made his debut in the season with 17 points in a team that played without Justice Winslow and Derrick Jones Jr., a team that is already 5-1.

Everything lived in that first historical room proved tremendous. The locals finished the quarter with 72.7% of success in the field goal, 71.4% in triples, 14-0 in the rebound in their hoop, 14 assists, and 4 steals; Houston finished the fourth with 23.8% in the field pitch, 13.3 from triple, 3 assists, and 5 losses.

As for the individual, Jimmy Butler led the feat in the fourth with 13 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists and Leonard added 11 points, while James Harden stayed in 1 of 6 in the shot and Russell Westbrook contributed in those first minutes 2 points without rebounds or assists.

Everything that came later was already fully mediated by what happened in the first quarter.

In the end, the Rockets left with a painful defeat without any use to the 29 points scored by Harden in 26 minutes. The bad games of Russell Westbrook, Clint Capela, and Eric Gordon weighed heavily on the team.
