Bosh (calf) again out for Heat tonight (and, of course, Josh McRoberts, too). So looking like Wade, Cole, Deng and power rotation du jour.
Wade has 27 points through 3 quarters on the second night of a back-to-back set. Deng is second on the team with just 8. Not enough support.
Heat iso Deng on Hayward. There needs to be more of that.
Heat had a chance to cut the deficit to single-digits before Deng gave the ball away which led to the Hayward jumper.
The fortune I got earlier this trip seems fitting to share seeing as the Jazz are playing against Luol Deng. http://t.co/09ASWYTXx1
Norris Cole, Luol Deng, Lone Peak product Justin Hamilton, D Wade and Chris "Birdman" Andersen starting for the Heat
Starters in Miami tonight: Hamilton, Andersen, Deng, Wade, Cole vs. Kanter, Favors, Hayward, Burks, Burke.
With Bosh and McRoberts Heat would post Wade and Deng and space with shooters. Now spacing with Haslem, Hamilton, Williams and Birdman
Deng puts leak at Barclays in the context of Miami's season: "It's unbelievable. Never seen anything like this. One thing after another."
Deng on Wade: "I didn't think he was going to play. I'm glad he found some energy... Great players are able to do that."
Panthers win 20-round shootout vs. Washington, longest shootout in NHL history... Wade 28, Deng 18, Napier 11 in Heat win in Brooklyn.
Bojan Bogdanovic is called for a loose ball foul on the defensive rebound. Good call. Hooked Luol Deng's arm.
Atrocious call by Tony Brothers there. Deron Williams didn't even touch Luol Deng, who then clearly traveled.
Heat go from up 10 at half, to lead down to one to up 76-66 going into fourth. Wade with 21. Deng with 13.
HALF: Heat 55, Nets 45. Wade: 17p on 7/14. Deng: 10p, 4r. Miami holding BKN to 33.3% FGs. 29-min rain delay in Q1.
One of Heat's best halves in a while, up 55-45 on Nets. Wade with 17, Deng with 10. Plumlee with 13 for Nets.
Hear were on a bit of a roll with Napier and Deng connecting from long range when the game was halted.
Heat go with Norris Cole, Wade, Luol Deng, Justin Hamilton & Udonis Haslem starting at Brooklyn tonight.
Heat to start Cole, Wade, Deng, Hamilton and Haslem (not Shawne Williams).
Luol Deng on the Heat's illness issue: "Maybe we can make rule about no high-fives and no passing each other the ball."
The Heat's projected lineup for Tuesday: Luol Deng, Shawne Williams, Justin Hamilton, Dwyane Wade, Norris Cole...Subject to change.
Projecting the Heat's starting lineup for Tuesday: Cole, Hardaway, Deng, Williams, Mourning
So Heat lineup on Tuesday in Brooklyn could look something like: Udonis Haslem, Shawne Williams, Luol Deng, Norris Cole and James Ennis.
The Cole-Wade-Deng-McRoberts-Bosh lineup has been on the court 34 min. Bosh: "Awesome."
Rose on playing against Deng: "Great person. Happy for him. Seems like he's very happy here. He's one of their threats. I miss him."
FINAL: Bulls 93, Heat 75. Miami shoots season-low 35% and goes 4/22 on threes. Deng leads with 17p & 10r.
By one point and one rebound, Pau Gasol's streak of eight straight double-doubles ends. Bulls 11-3 on the road. Deng double-double of 17-10.
Bulls beat Heat, 93-75. Miami shoots 35%. Wade & Deng w/ 17. Dunleavy 8/11 for 22. Butler w/ 17. Rose 14 & 3.
Luol Deng only player in game with double/double late in 4th with 17 points and 10 rebounds
Joakim Noah jabbering at Luol Deng from the bench last trip down.
End Q3: Bulls 72, Heat 48. Miami getting lit up by Mike Dunleavy. Any point in playing Wade/Deng in Q4?
Deng is 4-for-18 in his first 6 quarters against the Bulls.
Heat "shooting" so far: Deng 2/7, Haslem 0/1, Hamilton 4/8, Wade 1/5, Cole 1/4, Chalmers 2/5,Ennis 0/4,Williams 1/2,Granger 0/4,Andersen 1/1
Heat now playing Big None with Bosh out hurt, Wade and Deng sitting. 28-22 Bulls
Bulls reverting to last season's offense. Honoring Deng?
After all the times watching Deng guard LeBron, it really is strange to see Deng in a Heat jersey guarding his old teammates.
Overlooked gem from pregame: Thibs giving Nocioni some love. Raised him in reference to Deng and that group lifting Bulls out of lottery.
Heat open with postups for Deng, Haslem. Nothing. Bulls open with two dunks from Gibson.
Bulls in white. Heat in red. Deng exchanges some greetings with a few former teammates. Doesn't feel nearly the same in here without LeBron.
