Heat fans are going to hate hearing this... but it's absolutely freezing inside the AT&T Center in San Antonio tonight

Mike Monroe

#Spurs came into game vs. #Heat determined to cut turnovers, then commit 14 in 1st half

Ira Winderman

Heat 61, Spurs 54 at half. Shabazz Napier keeps growing on you and Andre Dawkins showing he can flat-out shoot.

Paul Garcia

Half: Preseason Heat 61, Spurs 54. SA with 14 turnovers. SA shootign 48%, MIA 50%. Anderson & Belinelli with 10 points each. Napier 14 pts

Paul Garcia

Heat on a 9-2 run to end the half right now, Spurs trailing by 11.

Mike Monroe

#Spurs vet Matt Bonner with 5 fouls in 1st half vs. #Heat.

Surya Fernandez

Andre Dawkins can shoot. Not sure about the rest of his game but the Heat certainly have a pressing need in that category.

Surya Fernandez

Spoelstra going deep in his bench already. Heat have accordingly lost their 11-point lead.

Ira Winderman

And now Dawkins. So a Heat second-quarter lineup of Napier, Dawkins, Johnson, Birch and Jones. Go ahead, guess the first names.

Ira Winderman

Chalmers (left-eye laceration) is getting stitches in the locker room and expected to return, per Heat.

Ira Winderman

Shabazz Napier again a catalyst for the Heat, his 10 early points pushing Heat to a 12-point lead against the defending world champions.

Surya Fernandez

Heat open up double-digit lead at the end of the 1st quarter against a mix of Spurs regulars and reserves. Napier again impressive early.

Dan McCarney

Spurs shooting 33 percent with 7 turnovers, trail the Heat 29-19 in tonight's pretend game at the AT&T Center.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs are down 28-19 after 1Q. Heat playing like they want to send this series back to Miami.

Paul Garcia

1Q: Preseason Heat 29, Spurs 19. SA with 7 turnovers. MIA shot 53%, SA 33%. Kyle Anderson with 8 points to lead SA.

Paul Garcia

Rio took a hit to his head, is headed to the locker room with Heat trainer.

Ira Winderman

Spurs loading up on early threes against the Heat. Never seen that before.

Ira Winderman

Chalmers back in the Heat's starting lineup. The irony is he didn't start the previous time the Heat played here.

Jason Jackson

That’s right @Miami Heat rocking the championship road red tonight (my fave of the HEAT units, so I’m biased) #HeatNation

Ira Winderman

Danny Granger . . . your Heat go-to guy tonight.

Ira Winderman

Among the starters in tonight's Heat-Spurs "NBA Finals Rematch": Shawne Williams, Matt Bonner, Kyle Anderson and Cory Joseph.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs: Joseph, Green, Anderson, Duncan, Bonner. Heat: Cole, Chalmers, Haslem, Granger, Williams. Just like in the Finals.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Fourteen of 15 Spurs (all but Damion James) from NBA Finals r still w/ team. As noted prior, 6 of 15 Heat players r not currently in NBA.

Dan McCarney

What a difference a year makes. A grand total of three reporters in the Heat locker room pregame. Down from roughly 300.

Jeff McDonald

It's not the Finals, and LeBron is gone, sign 101: Three reporters in the Heat locker room when it opened. Two were from the E-N.

Paul Garcia

Former 2007 NBA Spurs champion Fabricio Oberto in the building tonight for Spurs - Heat preseason game.

Ira Winderman

Asked if he contemplated how dramatically the Heat have changed since the Finals, Popovich shrugged, "It's the preseason, I'm not there."

Ira Winderman

Asked if he was surprised by LeBron leaving Heat after fourth straight Finals, Popovich, "I don't care. You guys think in those terms."

Ethan J. Skolnick

Wade, Bosh, Deng, Andersen out for the Heat vs. Spurs. Cole & Chalmers starting together in backcourt.

Paul Garcia

Per Pop, Tony Parker will be out vs. Heat. Cory Joseph to start, same Kyle Anderson will start.

Ethan J. Skolnick

For Spurs, Leonard & Splitter out tonight vs Heat

Mike Monroe

#Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard will miss tonight's game vs. Heat and perhaps miss rest of pre-season games bit.ly/1umCSaR
