It’s not why the Heat won, be that as it may.

The little plays — Ellington tossing his body onto the floor to corral a free ball late in control, James Johnson shaking off the sting of a 0-for-7 night to make the turnover that put Miami up for good — were what made a difference most, at any rate from the Heat point of view. They moved to a season-high four diversions more than .500 by holding off the Knicks, 107-103, in extra time on Friday night, with Ellington’s 24 focuses driving the way.

“That is the kind of group we are,” Ellington said. “With the goal for us to be effective, that is the sort of plays we need to make so we’re getting down and getting messy.”

Goran Dragic included 19 for Miami, which set a group record by endeavoring 42 3-pointers — and another group record by missing 30 of them. Josh Richardson scored 18 and Tyler Johnson included 16 for Miami, which went 19 for 20 from the foul line, 10 for 10 in the final quarter and extra time.

“We expected to granulate this diversion,” Dragic said. “It was an extreme diversion, however we’re content with the outcome.”

Doug McDermott’s 3-pointer with 1.1 seconds left in control sent the diversion to additional time, and the Knicks drove twice in the additional session. Miami completed the diversion on a 7-2 spurt, began by a 3 from Ellington with 2:22 remaining.

Courtney Lee scored 24 for New York, which got 20 from Michael Beasley — who missed the vast majority of additional time subsequent to turning his lower leg — and 15 from Kristaps Porzingis. The Knicks lost in spite of shooting 49 percent and holding the Heat to 40 percent.

“It’s exactly how it goes some of the time,” Porzingis said. “On to the following one.”

The diversion was tied for the fifteenth and last time with a half-minute left, when James Johnson figured out how to separate Jarrett Jack’s go from close to the highest point of the key for a turnover. That prompted Richardson making two free tosses a couple of moments later. The Knicks missed two shots over the most recent 13 seconds, and Miami survived.

“For contenders just,” Heat mentor Erik Spoelstra said. “They live for those minutes.”

The Knicks were down 10 ahead of schedule in the third, yet went on keeps running of 7-0 and 9-0 while in transit to taking a 86-80 lead halfway through the fourth.

Miami scored the following six, returning to-back 2-pointers from Ellington — an irregularity for him, yet they were required.
