Did the missed call change the outcome of the game? Probably not - Whiteside had the rebound, passed it to Deng Miami up 3

Goran Dragic

Driving to the airport whit personal driver @Luol Deng and DJ @Hassan Whiteside lol @Miami Heat #HeatNation http://t.co/LIxa8z9pGs

Joseph Goodman

Deng slow to get up after collision and limping. The official medical terminology for that is "dead leg."

Shandel Richardson

Deng down. Not another injury

Mike Trudell

Make it 12 1st half points for Boozer, who scored at the rim to counter a Luol Deng (his fellow Dukie) bucket.

Jason Lieser

End Q1: Heat 28, Lakers 25. Miami shooting 45% after a rough start. Deng has 9p.

Surya Fernandez

Heat lead the Lakers 28-25 at the end of the first quarter. Deng with a team-high 9 points, Whiteside has 7 points and 7 rebounds.

Ira Winderman

Heat 28, Lakers 25 at end of first. Deng with nine points, Whiteside seven and seven.

With Deng playing well, Spoesltra has Beasley sit back down.

Deng with his first points of the game on that corner 3.

Jason Jackson

Brian Forte hits @Luol Deng with a T simply because he was tired of listening … so ridiculous #HEATLive

Ira Winderman

Now Luol Deng with a T after Spoelstra also argued with referees. This is not about officiating. Hawks free throw to follow after break.

Chris Vivlamore

Goran Dragic and Luol Deng scoreless in first half for Heat. #ATLHawks

Ira Winderman

Luol Deng with six first-half turnovers, and scoreless.

Ira Winderman

Heat now up to 12 turnovers. Looks like Deng, who is out, will go scoreless in first half.

Ira Winderman

Deng with a turnover and then posterized by Bazemore.

Ira Winderman

Deng and Dragic still scoreless for Heat. But Whiteside with 12 rebounds.

Ira Winderman

Luol Deng gets the Heat's first non-Whiteside rebound with 4:08 left in the opening period.

Surya Fernandez

New #Heat starting lineup: Goran Dragic, Dwyane Wade, Henry Walker, Luol Deng, Hassan Whiteside.

Jason Jackson

The @Miami Heat are going 2 have 2 fight 2 keep the @Luol Deng perfection going (9-0 when Deng scores 20 or more pts this season) #HEATLive

Ira Winderman

With Deng still in, have to wonder whether there is any Beasley left.

Ira Winderman

Heat 82, Pelicans 73 going into fourth. Deng with 20, Dragic 18. No Beasley yet in second half.

Ira Winderman

Deng has picked up defensive assignment on Gordon, so Wade on Pondexter.

Jason Calmes

Heat 9-0 when Deng scores more than 20 points. (15 at the half.)

Ira Winderman

Pelicans 54, Heat 54 at half. Deng with 15, Dragic with 14 for Heat. Beasley with seven on 3 of 6. Wade four points, two fouls.

Joseph Goodman

Luol Deng with 13 points, 4 of 5 shooting. Heat on an 8-0 run. Heat 46, P'cans 39 4:13 2Q.

Ira Winderman

Beasley to bench. Deng back in.

Jimmy Smith

Tonight's #Heat starters: Deng, Haslem, Whiteside, Wade, Dragic.

Ira Winderman

Haslem stays in starting lineup, alongside Dragic, Wade, Deng and Whiteside. Beasley is active.

Mark Woods

Terrific read from @WallaceNBA_ESPN on ex-Great Britain international Luol Deng espn.go.com/nba/story/_/pa…

Ira Winderman

Luol Deng said he was not required to enter NBA concussion protocol after taking blow Wednesday, but said his neck still is sore.

Amin Elhassan

If you haven't read this in-depth profile of @Luol Deng by @WallaceNBA_ESPN, take the time to do so. Excellent read es.pn/1LRInJJ

Chad Ford

Brilliant piece by @WallaceNBA_ESPN : Luol Deng's path of righteousness es.pn/1LRInJJ

Ira Winderman

Beasley genuinely excited about this possibility. Said he understood no room for him with Deng, McRoberts and Granger in offseason.

Ira Winderman

As Erik Spoelstra simplifies, game gets easier for Heat's Luol Deng bit.ly/1zKUUab
