The Filipino spirit was with coach Erik Spoelstra after the Miami Heat took revenge from the Washington Wizards, beating the Wizards 97-75.
The Wizards, who were hosting the Filipino Heritage night, took an early beating from the Heat at the second quarter, where they only scored 7 points after missing 20 of their 22 field goal attempts.
At halftime, the Heat were up 50-31.
It was a Heat game all the way from there, posting an 80-53 lead early in the fourth quarter when Bosh made three straight field goals – including a 3-pointer.
Chris Bosh scored a game-high 23 points to lead the Heat through the night, Goran Dragic had 18.
John Wall, who led Washington with 14 points, hit just six of his 21 field goal attempts. Ramon Sessions had 13 points.
November last year, the Golden State Warriors hosted a very festive Filipino Heritage night with pregame shirts and other cultural performances and activities.
Heat will meet the Indiana Pacers on Monday, while the Wizards will host the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday.
