Second overtime loss in a row for the Heat

LOS ANGELES -- The Heat missed 14 free throws and was 1 of 10 in overtime. There's your game. Clippers 95, Heat 89.

--LeBron missed eight free throws.

--Interestingly, the Heat wasn't very discouraged with the loss. LeBron said he was satisfied with the way the team play.

--The Heat shot 39.5 percent, a season low.

--Chalmers was 4 of 10 from the three-point range, Chris Bosh was 1 of 3 and Dwyane Wade was 0 of 2 from three-point range in overtime.

--The Heat's designated three-point shooters never attempted a three-pointer. James Jones didn't leave the bench for the second game in a row. Does anyone find this strategy odd?

--All things considered, it was a great game for The Warden. Highlight of the game for me was when he stuffed Blake Griffin's dunk attempt and sent him to the ground. Pretty much summed up the physical nature of the game.

--Really, there's no need to freak out about this loss. The Heat played well and lost its second overtime game in a row on its second night of a back-to-back. Off to Denver.

--Oh, LeBron recorded his 200th double-double.
