The return of Hamilton and (soon) McRoberts gives the Heat some needed size and more shooting.
Heat looked surprisingly good tonight despite so many missing players and deserved their 4th consecutive win.
FINAL: Heat 104, Grizzlies 98. Four in a row for the Heat to finish the preseason. LET'S GET THIS SEASON STARTED.
So Heat lose first 4 exhibitions (2 in overtime), then win final 4. It's going to be a wild ride this season. Starts Wednesday vs. Wizards.
Nice work by the Heat reserves to boost the lead back to double-digits after the Grizzlies got it down to 3.
Dawkins with a 3, Birch with the block, Ennis with a slam. Not used to seeing the Heat with so many young guys with upside.
Andre Dawkins does one thing very well, something the Heat need. So keep both Khem Birch and Dawkins (and maybe not Shannon Brown)?
Heat have a solid chance of winning their 4th straight and they were very competitive in their OT losses and versus Hawks.
Heat scouting and player personnel dept. deserves praise for this preseason. They have identified and cultivated some nice young talent.
With Heat limited on wing, with Deng and Granger out, Heat in third went with Napier, Chalmers and Cole together. Small(est) ball.
Norris Cole with six assists and finding easy points for teammates. Heat 69, Grizzlies 61 3Q
Heat maintaining a double-digit lead with balanced scoring.
Heat 56, Grizzlies 48 to start the second half in Memphis. Encouraging stuff from Wade highlighting the night.
Heat up 54-48 Grizzlies at the half with Wade (16 points, 7-8 FGs) and Bosh (13 points, 6-10 FGs) leading the way.
At the half 54-48 Wade with 16, ZBo has 12 to lead the Grizz. Heat shooting 60% to the Grizz 43%
This Heat team is playing with a chip on its shoulder. They look like they want to prove they are still good without LeBron.
Mario Chalmers clearly the Heat front-runner as backup shooting guard. Shannon Brown has shown little, James Ennis simply not ready yet.
Shannon Brown in for Heat. Hasn't shown much in preseason and along with Andre Dawkins is only remaining player without a guarantee.
For those tuning in late, no Deng, Granger, McRoberts, Haslem or Birdman for Heat, but Hamilton making preseason debut.
19-12 and the Heat are on fire, only missed one FG so far
Heat now getting to Wade's post-up game, something they'll need, as Shawne Williams sets up at 3-point line in Heat's inverted reality.
No Luol Deng for Heat, so you get your wish: James Ennis starting. And this is the seventh consecutive exhibition that Cole starts at point
Heat:can they play fast aggressive D with this roster with any real potency?When do they forego wins and just develop kids?Bosh elite again?
Safe to say Heat are enjoying being out of the media spotlight.
Only media member at today's Heat shootaround in Memphis.
Spoelstra says Wade could've played in the back-to-back last week: “Yeah, he’s been able to work every day.” Heat have one next weekend.
Even though the Heat released Tyler Johnson, the NBA should let him compete in the slam dunk contest.
Release of Tyler Johnson, Shawn Jones and Larry Drew leaves Khem Birch and Andre Dawkins battling for 15th spot on Heat.
Tyler Johnson, Larry Drew and Shawn Jones have been released by the Heat.
Heat cut Shawn Jones, Tyler Johnson & Larry Drew. Hoping to get all 3 in d-league. Roster at 16.
Tyler Johnson and Shawn Jones not with Heat.
