Heat scorch nets from 3, beat Timberwolves

(TSX / STATS) -- MINNEAPOLIS -- Miami guard Wayne Ellington brought the heat to Minneapolis and burned his former team on its home floor.

"He's ignitable and he always has been," Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said of Ellington. "He hits two, then he's going for three, the whole team is looking for him. Guys know and feel when somebody's ignitable."

Ellington's long-range shooting and a sound team defensive game helped lift the Miami Heat to a 109-97 road win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night at Target Center.
