Mario Chalmers scored 20 points in the Miami Heat's 103-97 win on Christmas over the Thunder.

Chalmers entered the game averaging 6.5 points per game.

“No one ever doubts Rio in big games,” Erik Spoelstra said.

“You want him in your foxhole when the pressure is high.”

Chalmers helped the Heat extend their fourth quarter lead with five consecutive points.

“We’re clearly a better team when he is at his best,” Spoelstra said. “You have to have everyone as a live offensive threat. Everyone has to have balance.”
