Before criticizing Derrick Rose for being proactive about his health and his body, talk to Luol Deng about the Chicago Bulls' training staff

Barry Jackson

Heat undone by late 14-0 Warriors run, lose 114-97. Bosh 26, Deng 16, Chalmers 14. Curry 40 for Golden State.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Spoelstra was playing Napier-Cole-Chalmers together, until Cole took that 27-footer with 8 left on shot clock. Then summoned Deng.

Luol Deng's off-the-ball cuts clearly rubbing off on James Ennis, who has moved very well without the ball.

Barry Jackson

Heat beats Charlotte 94-93 behind 26 from Deng, 20 from Bosh and Chalmers. Al Jefferson misses tip in, in closing seconds.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Crazy ending in Miami. Walker can't get clean look against Napier. Tip missed at buzzer. Heat win, 94-93. Deng w/ 26. Chalmers/Bosh 20 & 10.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Deng's defense in last two minutes has been excellent. Now, if he can make a shot....

Ira Winderman

Rough third quarter for Heat, go into fourth down 72-67. Chalmers and Deng have cooled, while Jefferson and Walker have become problematic.

Rick Bonnell

Henderson is playing up more on Deng this half; getting some help from teammates to contain Deng's drive game.

Rick Bonnell

Henderson again guarding Deng.

Rick Bonnell

I'll be real curious if Clifford has Henderson start second half guarding Deng. That didn't go well at all first half.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Heat lead Hornets, 53-44, at half. Deng w/ 19. Jefferson w/ 13. Andersen has sprained ankle. In other news, what's with Dolphins' front 7?

Rick Bonnell

Halftime: Heat 53, Hornets 44. Luol Deng went off for 19 points on 8-of-10 shooting.

Ira Winderman

Heat 53, Hornets 44 at half. Deng with 19. Bosh with 11. Heat sharp on second night of back-to-back. Reviewing late 3 attempt.

Ira Winderman

Deng's 19 points and Chalmers' seven assists both tie Heat highs for any half this season. Still 1:44 left in second period.

Rick Bonnell

Marvin Williams now playing small forward, matched against Luol Deng.

Surya Fernandez

Deng already has 17 points midway through the 2nd quarter.

Joseph Goodman

Deng with 13 points already after scoring just nine on Saturday against the Magic.

Shandel Richardson

Luol Deng and Mario Chalmers carrying the Heat.

Ira Winderman

Deng starting to make those mid-range jumpers he couldn't miss with the Bulls.

Surya Fernandez

Heat up by a single point at the end of the 1st quarter 23-22. Chalmers and Deng with 8 each. Al Jefferson leads all scorers with 11.

Ira Winderman

Heat 23, Hornets 22 at end of first quarter. Jefferson with 11 for Charlotte, Chalmers, Deng eight apiece for Heat.

Ira Winderman

Deng out after a 4-of-5 start.

Rick Bonnell

Luol Deng is now 4-of-5 for eight points. Gerald Henderson struggling to contain him.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Luol Deng, off to a hot start (4 of 5) tonight, has been Heat's barometer. Shooting 60 percent in 6 wins, 34.4 percent in 6 losses.

Rick Bonnell

Nothing bugs Steve Clifford more than porous transition defense. That Deng layup was so easy it was silly.

Surya Fernandez

Deng with four early points. With Wade continuing to sit, it's crucial for Miami to get him going.

Ira Winderman

Deng with the run out, and Chalmers actually sees him for the halfcourt assist. Big start for the Rio-coaster.

Rick Bonnell

Gerald Henderson fouls Luol Deng in the post. That matchup looks troublesome.

Ethan J. Skolnick

With Deng's inconsistency, McRoberts' rust & Granger's unavailability, the re-signing of Chalmers stands out as a rare positive so far.

Ira Winderman

Rough start for Luol Deng, a couple of missed layups and a turnover.
