PHOENIX – Tyler Herro scored a season-high 33 points, Duncan Robinson also had a season high with 27 and the short-handed Miami Heat rode some hot shooting to a 123-100 win over the NBA-leading Phoenix Suns.

The Heat shot 50% from 3-point range, tying a franchise record with 22 makes on 44 attempts from behind the arc.

The 6-foot-7 Robinson had a particularly good night, making eight 3s on 16 attempts, including a pair in the fourth quarter that turned back a short-lived Suns rally.

Herro had a stellar all-around game, making 12 of 20 shots, including three 3-pointers.
