End Q3: Heat 79, Wizards 76. Deng: 16p, 4r. Chalmers: 14p, 5a. Wade: 13p on 6/15, 6a, 4r. Haslem with 9p on 4/4 off bench.

Jorge Castillo

#Heat lead 55-54 at the half. They’re shooting 64.7% from field, but 10 turnovers. Chalmers = 12p. 10 #Wizards scored, led by Nene’s 10.

Joseph Goodman

HALFTIME: #Heat 55, #Wizards 54. Heat shooting 64.7 percent. Chalmers with 12 points.

Ira Winderman

Gritty non-Bosh effort by Heat. Heat 55, Wizards 54 at half. Chalmers with 12, Deng with nine, Haslem with nine.

Joseph Goodman

Heat shooting 65.6 percent. Chalmers leads with 12 points. Heat 53, Wizards 52 2:00 2Q.

Ira Winderman

Chalmers flings it at the 24-second clock, rolls up, down, and in.

Jason Lieser

End Q1: Wizards 29, Heat 25. Chalmers: 5p, 4a. Williams: 6p on 2/3 threes. Andersen: 5p with 2 alleyoops. Wade: 0p on 0/3, 2a. Deng: 5p, 3r.

Surya Fernandez

With Cole and Chalmers out there, Deng shouldn't be handling the ball so much. Heat need to find him cutting to the basket more.

Joseph Goodman

Haslem in for Shawne Williams and Chalmers back for Wade. New rotations working so far for Spoelstra.

Ira Winderman

And, as forecast, Chalmers for Wade.

Joseph Goodman

Chalmers out for Cole early. Presumably Chalmers will return to spell Wade at the end of the quarter.

Surya Fernandez

Chalmers aggressive from the start with five quick points, one rebound and two assists in four minutes. Now it's Cole's turn.

Ira Winderman

Now Cole for Chalmers. Which means that Chalmers will return when Wade goes out.

Joseph Goodman

Chalmers in the starting lineup takes some pressure off Wade. Smart move by Spoelstra, who is shuffling lineups with McBob now gone.

Joseph Goodman

More musical chairs for the #Heat tonight. Chalmers back in the starting lineup along with Deng, Williams, Birdman, and Wade. @Sportsmanias

Surya Fernandez

#Heat starters: Mario Chalmers, Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng, Shawne Williams and Chris Andersen. Norris Cole returns to the bench.

Barry Jackson

Is Norris Cole starting experiment over? Heat says Chalmers will start at PG tonight, not Cole, who has 4th worst shooting % of starting PGs

Jason Lieser

#Heat will start Mario Chalmers, Wade, Luol Deng, Shawne Williams & Chris Andersen tonight vs Wash. Lineup No. 12.

Ira Winderman

And this time the Heat open with Shawne Williams and Chris Andersen, alongside Wade, Deng and . . . Chalmers. Yes, Rio starting.

Jorge Sierra

Rajon Rondo is behind Brandon Jennings, Mario Chalmers and Devin Harris PER-wise this season. #WhenPERGoesWrong

Barry Jackson

Wade shot 12 of 19 from field tonight. Rest of team: 15 for 51, including 3 for 13 for Chalmers. Wade 16-21 from line on 42 point night.

Tom Haberstroh

Heat's leading scorers tonight in 18-point home loss to Utah Jazz: Dwyane Wade 42 Mario Chalmers 11 James Ennis 9

Ira Winderman

Heat open 2nd quarter with a lineup of Udonis Haslem, Shawne Williams, James Ennis, Mario Chalmers, Shabazz Napier. Allow that to marinate.

Surya Fernandez

Heat need a breakout game from one of their young guys to have a shot at winning. Solid games from Cole and Chalmers would help matters.

Joseph Goodman

Loyal Heat fans still here cheering and rooting for a comeback. Chalmers' three-pointer cuts Bulls' lead to 75-60 8:48 4Q.

Jason Lieser

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

Surya Fernandez

Chalmers finds Hamilton twice for consecutive layups. Hamilton leads the Heat with 8 points.

Ira Winderman

Heat fielding a lineup of Chalmers, Shawne Williams, Birdman, Granger and Cole. Who scores?

Ira Winderman

With Bosh out it leaves Chalmers, Shawne Williams as lone Heat players to appear in all 24 games this season (assuming both play tonight).

Aaron Falk

Big threes by Wade (over Gobert on the perimeter) and Chalmers. Heat up 89-81 with 7:18 to play in the fourth.

Jody Genessy

Mario Chalmers hits a corner 3, giving the Heat an eight-point cushion just after the Jazz had cut Miami's lead to two.

Tony Jones

Wade and Chalmers for three....suddenly it's an eight point game....that quick

Joseph Goodman

With Wade doubtful and McRoberts once again out, Heat’s starting lineup is anyone’s guess. Cole, Chalmers, Deng, Hamilton, Bosh?

Surya Fernandez

Bosh led the team with just 14 points. Wade had 10, Deng 12, Chalmers 11. Heat shot 30-82 (.366); 7-22 (.318) from 3-point range.

Joseph Goodman

Faried forced two Heat players (Williams and Chalmers) to commit off-ball fouls on the same possession. Maybe first time I've seen that.

Jason Lieser

Mario Chalmers with his 3rd foul in 8 minutes.

Ira Winderman

Chalmers with third foul, so that gets Napier in.

Joseph Goodman

Definitely a flu game for Wade. Chalmers, Cole, Ennis, Bosh and Haslem starting the 4Q. Heat 75, Suns 72

Ira Winderman

Add Norris Cole to the list of Chalmers admonishers.

Amin Elhassan

Chalmers was in the opposite of a "no middle stance"; the fact that he bit on the pump fake made it even worse

Jason Lieser

End Q1: Grizzlies 28, Heat 26. FGs-- MEM 12/19, MIA 12/22. Miami scoring: McRoberts 7, Deng 6, Wade 6, Bosh 4, Cole 2, Chalmers 1.

Ira Winderman

Too-small ball? Haslem and Shawne Williams in power rotation, alongside Wade, Chalmers and Napier.

Ira Winderman

Heat Alamanac: Chalmers' six steals vs. Bucks most by a Heat player this season. So there's that. bit.ly/1spDag0

Ira Winderman

Chalmers' 6 first-half steals tie for most in half by any Heat player, a record he now shares with Grant Long, Jason Williams, Caron Butler.

Ira Winderman

Mario Chalmers almost with the ultimate Rio-coaster moment at end of second period, when walking-the-dog almost turned into poop.

Shandel Richardson

Just noticed Mario Chalmers had four steals in 1st quarter.

Ira Winderman

Mario Chalmers' five steals the most by a Heat player in a game this season. (Chalmers previously had four twice, Cole had four once).

Joseph Goodman

Heat's lineup right now in the first quarter: Napier, Chalmers, Ennis, Hamilton, Bosh

Ira Winderman

Through all that has gone on this season, give Chalmers credit, he has continued to play hard. Making an early difference tonight.

Surya Fernandez

Two easy offensive possessions for the Bucks. Chalmers then gets a steal.
