Heat, Rockets to meet, both in a better frame of mind

The Miami Heat are feeling a lot better now.

Miami, which plays host to the Houston Rockets on Monday night, entered this weekend in a bad mood. They had lost three consecutive games, drawing harsh words from team leader Jimmy Butler.

"We're just being soft," Butler said. "We're not getting into bodies. We're scared of some contact - soft overall."
