That was such a hard brick by Bosh it almost knocked Aminu down.

Dwain Price

Earl K. Sneed

Because HASSAN WHITESIDE. RT @karlajmeyer: @Earl K. Sneed @Dallas Mavericks Any idea why Powell is not playing tonight?

Mark Followill

Miami 45 Mavs 33 at half on @FSSouthwest. Hassan Whiteside already a double-double of 12 pts & 16 rebs. Heat shot 35%. Mavs 30% from floor

Earl K. Sneed

Because the Heat wanted to wear the "Black Tie" uniforms at home. RT @juice1880: why are the mavs wearing their white jerseys? @Earl K. Sneed

Dwain Price

#Mavs are 11 of 37 for 29.7%. #Heat is 18 of 51 for 35.3%. In other words, this is some pretty awful basketball being played here. #AWFUL!!

Earl K. Sneed

At the half, the @Dallas Mavericks trail 45-33. 8 pts for Monta Ellis to lead the Mavs. 12 pts & 16 rebs for Whiteside. #DALatMIA

Dwain Price

#Heat leads at the half 45-33. Monta leads with 8 pts, and Aminu and Charlie V has 6 each.

Earl K. Sneed

Bosh for three and the Heat has its largest lead at 45-33. #DALatMIA

Dwain Price

Maybe this Hassan Whiteside guy should have been in the All-Star game. This dude is really good. He has 12 pts and 16 reb. in 13 minutes.

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk is now 2 of 8 after that jumper. @Dallas Mavericks trail 42-32 as Whiteside is now up to 12 pts & 16 rebounds in the half. #DALatMIA

Earl K. Sneed

2:28 left in the half and the @Dallas Mavericks trail 39-30, shooting 30.3% from the field. #DALatMIA

Dwain Price

#Mavs started 4 of 25 and have now made 3 in a row. It's a heat wave.

Earl K. Sneed

Charlie V. with a much-needed three as the @Dallas Mavericks charge within six, 24-18. Mavs are shooting 5 of 26, which is 19.2%. #DALatMIA

Earl K. Sneed

James Ennis with the slam, and the @Dallas Mavericks call timeout in a 22-15 hole with 8:08 left in the half. #DALatMIA

Dwain Price

Robert Horry has 7 rings. MJ has 6. LeBron 2, Barea 1, Stockton and KMalone 0.

Dwain Price

Robert Horry just snuck behind me and told me I didn't know what I was doing. He's one of the best clutch players of all time.

Earl K. Sneed

Seven-time NBA champion Robert Horry just came and said what's up to @Dwain Price. Yeah, Dwain is a big deal.

Dwain Price

By the way, Miami missed 4 more shots by the time I tweeted that last tweet. So it is 8 of 34.

Dwain Price

#Mavs are 3 of 21 on FGs. Miami is 8-of-30. Basketball as been set back a few years.

Dwain Price

Miami had 8 offensive rebounds in the 1st period. Some teams don't get that an entire game.

Dwain Price

The Heat outrebounded the Mavs 21-10 in the 1st quarter. Whiteside had 14 reb. for Miami.

Dwain Price

Monta and Aminu has 4 pts each.

Dwain Price

#Heat leads 15-13 after the 1st period. Mavs are 3-of-17 on FGs; Miami's 6-of-26. Put me in coach, I'm ready to play.

Jeff Caplan

Mavs-Heat 1st quarter could turn a lesser person off basketball altogether.

Mark Followill

Heat lead the Mavs 15-13 after 1 on @FSSouthwest. Hassan Whiteside with NBA season hi in a qtr & Heat record for rebounds in a qtr with 14

Earl K. Sneed

Despite getting out-rebounded 21-10, the @Dallas Mavericks trail just 15-13 after one. That's while shooting 3 of 17. #DALatMIA

Dwain Price

This is one of the worst quarters I've ever seen. And I was here in the 1940s.

Dwain Price

As bad as the #Mavs are playing, they're only down 15-13. Translation: Miami's playing pretty bad, too. Mavs are 3-of-13 on FGs.

Earl K. Sneed

With Whiteside's Heat record 14 rebounds in the quarter, Miami has a 17-5 advantage on the glass with 3:00 left in the period. #DALatMIA

Earl K. Sneed

3:36 left in the 1st and the @Dallas Mavericks trail 13-9, shooting of 13 from the field. #DALatMIA

Earl K. Sneed

Al-Farouq Aminu just challenged Hassan Whiteside. Didn't get the slam to go, but he got to the line. #DALatMIA

Dwain Price

Whiteside has the Heat single-quarter rebound record of 14. If I look down again he may snatch another 7 in 28 seconds.

Dwain Price

Whiteside has tied the Heat's single-quarter rebound record of 13 set by Isaac Austin on Nov. 22, 1997 in the 2nd qt. vs. Toronto.

Earl K. Sneed

There's 5:30 left in the 1st and Hassan Whiteside has already tied the Heat franchise record for rebounds in a quarter with 13. #DALatMIA

Earl K. Sneed

After trailing 7-0 to open the night, the @Dallas Mavericks are in an 11-7 hole with 5:30 in the 1st. Mavs are 3 of 12 from the field. #DALatMIA

Earl K. Sneed

Monta Ellis for three, and the @Dallas Mavericks are within four, 11-7. #DALatMIA

Dwain Price

I looked down and Whiteside grabbed 2 more rebounds. He may get 41 tonight.

Dwain Price

Whiteside has all 10 of Miami's rebounds. I've ben around since the stone ages and I've never seen that!!!

Dwain Price

Whiteside already has 10 rebounds at the 8:01 mark of the first period. That's crazy!!!!

Earl K. Sneed

Whiteside already has 10 rebounds. There's 8:01 left in the 1st quarter. #DALatMIA

Dwain Price

Mavs disappointed Ellis left off All-Star roster star-telegram.com/sports/nba/dal…

Earl K. Sneed

Tyson Chandler gets the @Dallas Mavericks on the board. Mavs were 0 of 5 before that. #DALatMIA

Earl K. Sneed

Heat have on the "Black Tie" uniforms tonight. Reminds me of a college squad and something the Cincinnati Bearcats would wear. #DALatMIA

Earl K. Sneed

Richard Jefferson is making his 3rd start of the season, in place of the ill Chandler Parsons. @Dallas Mavericks have lost 7 straight to the Heat.

Mark Followill

With Parsons out tonight, Richard Jefferson will make 3rd start of season. Mavs vs Heat about to get underway on @FSSouthwest

Earl K. Sneed

With Chandler Parsons (illness) out, the @Dallas Mavericks may need more from Dirk Nowitzki in Miami. @… instagram.com/p/yf1cv5NkjJ/

Dwain Price

On the rotation being affected sans Parsons, Carlisle said: "It affects it significantly. The next guy just got to step up, that’s all."

Dwain Price

Parsons grew up near Orlando and always looks forward to playing there. The #Mavs play in Orlando tomorrow.

Dwain Price

"I hope he’s feeling better by tomorrow. We’ll have to wait and see.'' -- Carlisle on Parsons, who won't play tonight dut to an illness

Dwain Price

I talked to Parsons after this morning's shootaround and he seemed fine. Was it something he ate for lunch?

Dwain Price

Chandler Parsons will not play tonight due to an illness.

Jeff Caplan

No Wade, Deng for Miami. Geesh. RT @coopmavs: Chandler Parsons is out tonight with an undisclosed illness that came on this afternoon

Mark Followill

Chandler Parsons is ill and out of tonight's game in Miami per Rick Carlisle

Earl K. Sneed

Per Rick Carlisle, Chandler Parsons is out vs. Miami due to illness. #DALatMIA

Dwain Price

Back in the day the NBA used to replace an injured guard on the All-Star team with a guard. Time's a changing. #cousinsreplaceskobe

Dwain Price

J.J. Barea graduated from Miami Christian School -- 15 minutes from American Airlines Arena -- and his 3-yr old son, Sebastian, lives here.

Dwain Price

You ever which one of the All-Star snubs will come out and have a big game tonight -- or during their 1st game post-snub?

Dwain Price

With Dwyane Wade (hamstring) out tonight, the #Mavs have a great chance of snapping their season-high 4-game losing streak.

Dwain Price

#Mavs at #Heat at 7 tonight. Read about it in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and/or at star-telegram.com.

Dwain Price

Rick Carlisle on Monta Ellis' All-Star chances: “I’m disappointed for him. He’s very deserving, as was some other guys that missed it."

Dwain Price

“He’s playing both ends of the floor, making big shots for us, and so we felt like he had a strong case.'' -- Dirk on Monta's All-Star bid

Dwain Price

"This should be more motivation for him and the rest of us.’’ -- #Mavs coach Rick Carlisle on Monta Ellis not making the All-Star team

Jeff Caplan

Solid spin. RT @dmn_mavericks: Monta Ellis’ All-Star snub a testament to Mavericks’ balance bit.ly/1znPSCH

The Great Debate of '15 All-Star selection: Reward gr8 player Durant, who's missed more gms than played, or reward gr8 season, Lillard?

Jeff Caplan

Last time I'll say it: NBA must expand All-Star rosters from 12 to 13. Active rosters for every other NBA game played is 13.

Jeff Caplan

Now, how does @Damian Lillard get on the team?

Jeff Caplan

DeMarcus Cousins is an All-Star. League announces he will take Kobe's spot on West squad. Good for Boogie.

Dirk Nowitzki on Monta Ellis' All-Star snub: "We felt like he had a strong case, but every year some great players don't get in."
