Heat make it official and sign Henry Walker to second 10-day contract.
Heat officially announce Henry Walker signed to a second 10-day contract.
Not a big fan of the James Harden suspension. There was a kick, but it was more a heat of the moment reaction. Suspension seems punitive.
Pat Riley, who once found a diamond in the rough named Anthony Mason, saw D-League guard Tyler Johnson score 26 points last night for Heat.
Whiteside plans to tell the NBA office he just got caught up in "the heat of the moment" and retaliated. Could be suspended/fined.
That was the most fun/intense/insane/ejoyable Heat game of the season.
Heat are 5-4 in their last 9. This was the first win against a team with a better record in that stretch.
FINAL: Heat 115, Suns 98. T. Johnson fights through ankle scare for 26p on 10/13. Dragic fights through fouls for 21p on 5/9 FGs, 9/9 FTs.
Tyler Johnson 26 points in 25 minutes in Heat's 115-98 win vs. Phoenix. Dragic 21 points.

Think of all those games the Heat could have used a scoring boost while Beasley was sitting at home across the street.
Sports in 2015: Fan Cam looking for "the craziest Heat fan in the building!" zooms in on a woman staring down at her iPhone.

Great pass from Wade to Tyler Johnson under the basket for a layup with three-tenths of a second left in 3Q. Heat 85, Suns 74

End Q3: Heat 83. Suns 74. Whiteside (17p, 10r), Markieff Morris & Alex Len have been ejected. Wade has 16p. Q3 lasted 41 min.
And Tyler Johnson is staying in. Just a little limp. Heat up 81-74.
Heat bench empties to check on Tyler Johnson. Johnson up and walking it off.
Tyler Johnson has been excellent for the Heat tonight with 13p off the bench. He's writhing. Whole team rushed over to check him.
At the end of the mess, Heat have the ball up 9 late in Q3.
Heat and Suns still want to kill each other. Another altercation now involving Henry Walker and Marcus Morris. Possibly Chris Andersen too.
Hassan Whiteside gets a huge ovation as he leaves. Ejected after 17p & 10r. Heat up 77-65 w/ 4:26 left in Q3.
Heat might need JaVale McGree on Wednesday. Or Andray Bletch. Or Khem Birch.
Plenty for league office to sort through Tuesday. ESPN's Heat-Lakers might also be without Whiteside.
Chris Andersen will likely be starting the Heat's next game at center
Best I can tell, no one left Heat bench.
Dragic has returned to the Heat bench.
Scoreboarding: Heat up 9 on Phoenix mid-Q3. Nets up 5 on GSW, early Q4.
So Dragic with three points on this possession and Heat still have the ball.
