A postgame look at the Miami Heat

A look at the Miami Heat after their 125-119 win over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday:

Record: 25-9.

The Big 3: Dwyane Wade scored 45 points, the second straight night in which he reached 40. Chris Bosh added 21 points and LeBron James scored 20.

Noteworthy: The win, combined with Boston's loss, moved the Heat within one game of the Celtics in the Eastern Conference.

Quotable: "We're in the position now where we've inked a little part of history." — Dwyane Wade, after the Heat finished the best month in franchise history, a 15-1 December.

Next up: Miami hosts Golden State on Saturday.
