Off topic tweet of the week RT @alanspage: @Amin Elhassan shouldn't it be The Phoenix Heat and the Miami Suns?

Lang Whitaker

A heat check is having a Warriors guards.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Still believe it makes sense for Heat to sit beat-up players Thursday, to get right for DET/IND/CHAR. Those are games they need.

Ira Winderman

Winderman's View: The Spurs show they're still in championship mode, as the Heat show something else. bit.ly/1CvbCxP

Ira Winderman

Heat lack enough to compete with Spurs as East race tightens. Oh, and Cavs are up next. bit.ly/1DnAHOZ

Jason Lieser

#Heat don't have 5 healthy bodies on the roster. No shock they couldn't hang with #Spurs: palmbeachpost.com/news/sports/ba…

Devin Kharpertian

The Nets are a half-game behind the Heat for the seventh seed. Nets would tie if they beat Knicks tomorrow.

Jason Lieser

#Heat talked all year about getting full roster intact for a stretch. Hasn't happened yet. Wade: "Yeah, we might need to quit that idea."

Joseph Goodman

Chris Bosh was in the Heat’s post-game locker room hanging out with teammates. Feeling great.

Royce Young

Five-Star Review: Spurs handle the Heat, Brooklyn won't go away cbsprt.co/1OXdIxc http://t.co/oqVuXeggNB

Shandel Richardson

Heat still in No. 7 seed. The bumpy ride continues. Hang on tight

Jason Lieser

#Heat still have the No. 7 seed. They are 1 game up on BKN/BOS and have the tie-breaker over both.

Barry Jackson

... Dragic 19 points, Wade 15, Whiteside 10 pts, 6 boards, 2 blocks in 23 minutes... Heat owns tiebreaker vs. Nets & Celtics but not Bucks.

Jason Lieser

#Heat lose 95-81 to #Spurs. San Antonio has beaten them 5 straight going back to Game 2 last year.

Roberto Martin

Final @Miami Heat 81-@San Antonio Spurs 95. @Manu Ginobili 2pts+1reb+1as en 17m52s. Spurs se despega de Dallas y se acerca a Portland y Clippers. #NBA

Joseph Goodman

FINAL: Spurs 95, Heat 81. Heat shot 40.5 percent.

Surya Fernandez

Heat lose 95-81 to the Spurs. Dragic led the team with 19 points, Wade with 15 but he scored just five points in the second half.

Royce Young

Spurs 95, Heat 81. San Antonio has won 14 of 17. Think this team might be playoff-ready. http://t.co/i8lypkNkIZ

Paul Garcia

The Spurs improve to 48-26 with a 95-81 victory over the Heat. Kawhi 22 points, 9 boards, 4 steals, 3 assists & 2 blocks. Parker 16 pts

Barry Jackson

Heat 95-81 loss to Spurs tonight leaves No. 7 Heat 2 games behind No. 6 Bucks, 1/2 game ahead of No. 8 Brooklyn, 1 game ahead of No.9 Boston

Ethan J. Skolnick

Spurs hold off Heat push, win 95-81. Leonard w/ 22. Wade 6-of-20. Whiteside 10 & 6. Spurs just 2.5 behind No. 2 seed Memphis in West.

Surya Fernandez

Spurs instead increased their lead to 14 with just two minutes left in the game. Heat have run out of time.

Surya Fernandez

Heat have cut what was once a 21-point Spurs lead down to 10 after scoring just 2 points at the midway point of the 4th quarter.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Heat trim Spurs lead to 10 w/ 3:32 left. Popovich has had Leonard out there w/ 4 subs. Duncan, Parker may be summoned back in.

Paul Garcia

3:32 left in the 4th and the Heat have cut the Spurs' 21 point lead down to 10. SA has a B2B tomorrow in ORL.

Ben Rohrbach

As Kawhi obliterates Heat, looks like C's will trail MIA by 1 game for 7th, BKN by 1/2 game for 8th w/shot to drop IND 2 games back tomorrow

Shandel Richardson

Gotta give Heat credit. Haven't show any quit all season.

Chuck Swirsky

Spurs playing a depleted Heat team but boy do they look great its that time of year.

Ethan J. Skolnick

The Heat have two points in the first six minutes of this quarter. Time to unload whatever is left of the bench. Which is, well, Zoran.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Spurs up 15, 9:57 left. May be shut-it-down time for Heat. Next game: Thursday in Cleveland, against a Cavs team rested from 3 days off.

Surya Fernandez

Wade went scoreless in the third quarter, missing four shots. Heat need someone to respond to the Spurs domination so far in the second half

Jason Lieser

Michael Beasley was pretty good over his first month back with the #Heat, but there's no denying he's been totally out of it for a week now.

Jason Lieser

Michael Beasley with a technical foul. The #Heat are fighting like crazy to keep this score reasonable. Really bad timing.

Ira Winderman

Nets beat Pacers, now have won 8 of 10. That 4-0 season-series tiebreaker over Brooklyn could come in hand for Heat.

Joseph Goodman

Spurs outscored the Heat 25-18 in the third quarter despite seven turnovers. San Antonio has 16 entering the fourth but leads by 11.

Paul Garcia

SA defense in 3Q held Heat to 18 points, 30% shooting, but MIA scored 8 points off second chance opportunities.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs lead 71-60 heading to 4Q. Holding Heat to 39.7%. Up big despite 16 turnovers.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Wade sitting down, addressing the Heat in the huddle. Spoelstra let him take it.

Paul Garcia

3Q: Spurs 71, Heat 60. SA takes the 3Q 24-18. Parker scored 10 of his 14 in the 3Q. Kawhi 16 pts, 9 reb, 2 stl, 2 blk. Duncan 10 pts, 10 reb

Ira Winderman

Spurs 71, Heat 60 going into fourth, after 18-4 Spurs run in third. Wade 5 of 15. Duncan with a double-double.

Chuck Swirsky

Whiteside just dunked ....hmmm. I wonder why he didn't moments ago? Either way the Heat play hard credit Coach Spo

Joseph Goodman

Beautiful spin move in transition by Whiteside; missed the layup. Heat down by 15.

Ben Rohrbach

Some good knee draining talk in this Spurs-Heat game. Gross times.

Joseph Goodman

Shorthanded Heat keeping it close in the third quarter against the Spurs. Spurs 58, Heat 52 with Whiteside checking in.

Dan McCarney

Spurs trying to give this game away, but the Heat insist on giving it right back.

Jeff McDonald

This is feeling a lot like the Spurs' last visit to NYC. Except these Heat are still loads better than those Knicks.

Jason Lieser

#Heat in good position with playoff chase winding down. Here's where they stand: heatzone.blog.palmbeachpost.com/2015/03/30/hea…

Ira Winderman

Heat getting going with threes now, and needed. Spurs 51, Heat 48. Feisty bunch these shorthanded Heat.
