A zombie scored 16 points in Tuesday night's matchup between the Golden State Warriors and Miami Heat.

That's how many points Stephen Curry tallied after Heat forward James Johnson killed him with this dunk to close out the opening quarter.

Johnson, 29, is enjoying a career year with the Heat, averaging personal highs of 11.7 points, 5 rebounds, and 2.7 assists per game.

Playing without a resting Klay Thompson, Curry reanimated to finish the night with 24 points, eight rebounds, nine assists, a block, and a steal to help the Warriors to a 107-95 victory. Kevin Durant led Golden State with 28 points to go with eight rebounds.

Behind a big night from Hassan Whiteside (28 points, 20 rebounds), Miami, owners of the NBA's second-worst record, cut the Dubs' lead to three halfway through the fourth quarter. Then Curry subbed in to help the Warriors break away.

“We definitely missed [Thompson],” Durant said. “Hopefully, he’s rested up and ready for the next game.”
