Video: Victor Oladipo Debuts as the Heat Beat the Warriors

The Miami Heat showed off their new starting shooting-guard on Thursday night against the Golden State Warriors and the debut was great success. Victor Oladipo did a little bit of everything for the Heat as he finished the game with six points, five dimes, three rebounds and two steals.

The Heat were led by Jimmy Butler who scored 22, Duncan Robinson who knocked down 21 and the win helped move the Heat over the .500 mark with a record of 25-24.

Some more of the game notes included:

Tyler Herro scored 20 points, Bam Adebayo had 19, Trevor Ariza added 10 and Andre Iguodala — the 2015 NBA Finals MVP for Golden State — had 10 in the fourth quarter to help seal the win against his former club.

Stephen Curry finished with 36 points and 11 rebounds for the Warriors, who got 23 from Andrew Wiggins and a 16-point, 10-rebound, eight-assist night from Draymond Green.

The Warriors got off to a cold start, missing 11 of their first 13 shots, and found themselves in the lead after Miami went icy itself later in the opening period. The Warriors never led by more than five, and while the Heat offense was up and down, the defense was a constant.

Roll the tape as Oladipo finally debuts for the Heat and the team looked nice against Chef Curry on the Dubs:
