Weird preseason for Luol Deng. Scored 18+ twice, was at 4 or under twice. He's got 2p on 1/3 in 22min. tonight.

Ira Winderman

Luol Deng has long been a wonderful complementary piece. The Heat, though, might need more., So far, it's largely been a struggle.

Surya Fernandez

Wade has 14, but the rest of the #Heat starters have done very little on offense: Cole (0), Deng (2), Williams (2) and Bosh (4)

David Hardisty

Nice throwdown -- Dwight Howard dunks over Luol Deng, Birdman. youtube.com/watch?v=hIAGWw…

Jonathan Feigen

Chris Bosh was not the only Heat player the Rockets' pursued. Did not advance nearly as far, but also had talks with Deng.

Surya Fernandez

#Heat starters: Cole, Wade, Deng, S. Williams, Bosh. #Rockets starters: Beverley, Harden, Ariza, T. Jones, Howard.

Joseph Goodman

Cole, Wade, Deng, S. Williams, Bosh starting for the Heat tonight against the Houston Rockets.

Ira Winderman

Norris Cole again starts in place of Chalmers at point guard. Also starting: Chris Bosh, Shawne Williams, Luol Deng and Dwyane Wade.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Joakim Noah, 4 his (unusual) praise of Heat, did add this about Deng's situation: "Hopefully, it's not THAT good. But I love him to death."

Ethan J. Skolnick

Joakim Noah on his "big brother" @Luol Deng .... "I'm happy for him. He's in a great situation, a great organization."

Joe Cowley

Mirotic then comes in for Gasol after his 10 minutes of work, while Butler is in the Luol Deng crossover role.

Ira Winderman

ICYMI: Given Saturday off (along with Wade, Deng, Birdman), Chris Bosh ready for a show of force this season. bit.ly/1sZkPvg

Ira Winderman

Spoestra to hold out Wade, Bosh, Deng and Birdman tonight, likely to start Shawne Williams, Haslem, Granger, Cole and Chalmers.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Wade, Bosh, Deng, Andersen out for the Heat vs. Spurs. Cole & Chalmers starting together in backcourt.

Iñako Diaz-Guerra

VÍDEO | Miami Heat 115 - GS Warriors 108. 19 puntos de Bosh y Deng pueden con los 29 de Klay Thompson. baloncesto.as.com/videos/2014/10…

Ira Winderman

Luol Deng now 8 of 11 for 19 points, keeping the Heat close.

Surya Fernandez

Nice bounce-back games from Luol Deng and Shawne Williams tonight.

Rusty Simmons

#Warriors 56, Miami 47 (half) Lee 16 pts/3 reb, Green 9 pts, Thompson 7 pts/5 ast, Bogut 4 reb/4 ast, Curry 5 ast; Deng 12 pts, Wade 8 pts.

Rusty Simmons

Draymond Green dunks over Luol Deng and gives the Heat small forward a little preseason stare down.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Deng looks smooth tonight & Bosh has all preseason. Waiting for a Wade game.

Ira Winderman

In addition to playing Chalmers at the two, Deng has been playing at the four.

Joseph Goodman

Heat 23, Warriors 16 after a three-pointer by Luol Deng.

Jason Jackson

Daaaaaang, Deng! 3 stroke looking good tonight #HeatNation

Ira Winderman

Deng feeling it. Maybe he's the Heat's 3-point answer?

Ira Winderman

Chalmers enters . . . for Deng. Clearly trying to see if Chalmers can also be backup two, as Wade moves to three.

Ira Winderman

Heat offense looks better, because they're making shots. Deng very active, but Warriors also playing second night of back-to-back.

Surya Fernandez

With two shots just minutes into the game, Luol Deng has already surpassed his point total versus the Hawks.

Rusty Simmons

GSW vs. MIA starters: GSW -- Curry, Thompson, Barnes, Lee, Bogut; MIA -- Cole, Wade, Deng, S. Williams, Bosh. Out: Ezeli, Livingston.

Ira Winderman

Heat starters: Cole, Wade, Deng, Shawne Williams and Bosh. So back near his Kansas college roots, Chalmers again doesn't start.

Ira Winderman

Looking like Shawne Williams will get the call at power forward. Spoelstra said he is not starting Granger-Luol in tandem again tonight.

Ira Winderman

Defense, Wade (3 of 9), Deng (1 of 6) make this another night of concern for the Heat. They badly need McRoberts and the good Chalmers

Surya Fernandez

Deng continues to struggle with just 2 points (that he scored early in the 1st quarter), 1 assist and 1 rebound in 21 minutes.

Surya Fernandez

Hawks have cut the deficit to single digits. Wade (4 points) and Deng (2 points) struggling to create some offense.

Ira Winderman

Then Granger with perfect set up to Deng on typical Deng cut. Heat 14-0 on Hawks. Horford 0 for 2 in return.

Jason Lieser

Heat starters tonight vs ATL: Norris Cole, Wade, Deng, Danny Granger & Bosh. Spoelstra still test driving options while McRoberts is out.

Surya Fernandez

#Heat starters: Cole, Wade, Granger, Deng, Bosh. #Hawks starters: Teague, Korver, Carroll, Millsap, Horford

Ira Winderman

Granger to start at power forward tonight, third PF in four exhibitions. Also Bosh, Wade, Deng and Cole.

Mike McGraw

Something tells me Jimmy Butler is going to get more than the 3 yrs, $30 million the #Bulls offered Luol.

Ira Winderman

No ill will for Luol Deng when Heat face Danny Ferry-less Hawks on Tuesday night bit.ly/1vYcc3N but incident still resonates.

Joseph Goodman

Luol Deng on facing the Hawks on Tuesday following this summer's controversy. bit.ly/11fwon7

Jason Lieser

Luol Deng says no special meaning to tomorrow's game vs ATL. Reiterates he forgives Ferry & harbors no ill feelings toward the Hawks.

Iñako Diaz-Guerra

LeBron, Love, Gasol, Pierce, Lance Stephenson, Parsons, Deng... ¿Cuál creéis que será el mejor fichaje del año? http://t.co/yCDXYizRKZ

Ethan J. Skolnick

For Heat, Bosh overdribbling, Deng looks good on D; For Cavs: Love still mostly operating outside (like '13-14 Bosh), Waiters under control.

Joseph Goodman

For the Heat: Cole, Wade, Deng, Bosh, Haslem.

Mark Woods

Cavaliers v Heat, LeBron v Luol on @BTSport 1 now

John Denton

#Magic rookie Aaron Gordon got quite the education from Luol Deng on Tues. Tonight, CJ Miles has already scored 7 pts in first 4 min vs. him

Ethan J. Skolnick

Six Heat players & six Cavs players participated in the NBA Cares clinic. Irving, Love among them for Cavs, Deng, Chalmers for Heat
