    KENDRICK Nunn scored 21 points, Tyler Herro added 20 and Miami rallied to beat Golden State, 73-65, in the California Classic on Wednesday in Sacramento (Thursday, Manila time).

    Golden State led by as many as 11 in the second quarter and had a 50-45 advantage after the third quarter.

    Miami pulled even by midway through the fourth quarter and Nunn's step-back 3-pointer with 35 seconds remaining sealed the win.

    It was the second straight good game for the 23-year-old Nunn, who led the Heat (3-0) with 27 points in the team's comeback win over Sacramento on Tuesday.

    Herro scored 13 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter. This year's 13th overall draft pick shot 7 of 21 from the field, including 2 of 11 from 3-point range.
