Jason Lieser

Heat 41, Celtics 32, 5:53 left in Q2. Boston is shooting 40.6%. Shawne Williams & Udonis Haslem lead Miami with 8p each.

Ira Winderman

Even with Wade out, Spoesltra has elected to push through with Cole and Chalmers instead of Napier.

Joseph Goodman

Justin Hamilton on the bench talking to a trainer...

Ira Winderman

And still no Shabazz.

Jason Lieser

Jameer Nelson is wearing neon yellow and dark gray shoes. Classic Celtics colors.

Ira Winderman

Haslem offering a reminder that he still can have value. Hamilton offering something different.

Surya Fernandez

With the score 39-28 early in the second quarter, the #Heat have their biggest lead so far tonight.

Surya Fernandez

Haslem doing some nice work off the bench with 8 points, 3-3 FG shooting in 8 minutes.

Joseph Goodman

That's probably the best first name in the history of basketball. RT @DannyMartinez4 Jaw Crowder wearing 99 is killing me.

Joseph Goodman

Potassium awareness. RT @talkhoops I’ll never understand why there is a guy in a banana costume here.

Joseph Goodman

#Heat 28, #Celtics 21 after 1Q. Heat shooting 57.1 percent. Seven different players scored for the Heat. Shawne Williams with eight pts.

Jason Lieser

End Q1: Heat 28, Celtics 21. Shawne Williams leads Miami with 8p, Deng has 7p. Chalmers with 4a.

Ira Winderman

Heat had been up 10, go into second period up 28-21 on Celtics. Williams with eight, Deng with seven. Heat at .571 from field.

Jason Lieser

I bet Jameer Nelson refers to Brad Stevens as "kid."

Jason Lieser

If there was ever a convenient time for the Heat to be down Bosh & Wade-- they're home against Boston tonight & Philly on Tuesday.

Jason Lieser

Shawne Williams with 8p and 3r in the first 9 min.

Jason Lieser

Heat up 21-13 on Boston late in Q1. Celtics helping out by shooting 6/15 with 4 TOs.

Joseph Goodman

James Ennis in at shooting guard for the Heat. Heat 17, Celtics 11 4:26 1Q.

Surya Fernandez

All five Heat starters have scored already.

Joseph Goodman

Heat 13, Celtics 5. With nothing but role players, Heat playing more like a team...Hmm. http://t.co/BPTbKVpWWF

Ira Winderman

Shawne Williams' 3-point shooting continues to be one of the major storylines of the Heat season.

Ira Winderman

Heat in red, Celtics in green. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Joseph Goodman

Someone please send me a gif of that Birdman iso play.

Surya Fernandez

Wade won't be starting so now the revised #Heat starters for tonight are: Cole, Chalmers, Deng, Williams and Birdman.

Ira Winderman

Wade out against Celtics due to bruised right knee. bit.ly/1JF8q6J Heat also without Bosh, Whiteside, McRoberts.

Jason Lieser

Bosh hopes to be back for Christmas game vs LeBron, but also possible he'll be out another month: heatzone.blog.palmbeachpost.com/2014/12/21/chr…

Joseph Goodman

My prediction for Chris Bosh on Christmas Day: bit.ly/1CkZEJ4.

Barry Jackson

Heat says Wade won't play tonight because of knee contusion.

Barry Jackson

Per Elias, Dolphins first team in NFL history to produce go-ahead safety in final minute of fourth quarter. Weeeee!

Surya Fernandez

You can view my gallery of photos, video and interviews from the Miami Heat vs Boston Celtics game here: foxsports.com/florida/story/…

Joseph Goodman

Chris Bosh on his treatment: "I'm going to call Mr. Miyagi tonight. See if he can do me like Daniel Son."

Surya Fernandez

Correction, @Celtics starters have been updated for tonight: Marcus Smart, Avery Bradley, Jeff Green, Jared Sullinger, Tyler Zeller.

Ira Winderman

For starters: A look at lineups, inactives, referees and a pregame note of note for Heat-Celtics bit.ly/1zlXVlE 6 p.m. (Sun Sports).

Surya Fernandez

#Heat starters: Chalmers, Wade, Deng, Williams, Birdman. #Celtics starters: Turner, Bradley, Green, Sullinger, Zeller.

Joseph Goodman

To review: The Heat is starting Cole, Chalmers, Deng, Shawne Williams and Birdman against the Cetlics, who will counter with a rookie PG.

Ira Winderman

Official now. Wade is out.

Jason Lieser

Wade (bruised knee) is out. Heat to start Cole, Chalmers, Deng, Williams & Andersen vs Boston.

Joseph Goodman

Wade is out tonight against the Celtics. Cole and Chalmers starting.

Ira Winderman

Also Deng, Williams and Birdman.

Ira Winderman

Looks like Wade is out. Chalmers and Cole starting.

Joseph Goodman

Bosh on health: "I’m keeping the bigger picture, even though it’s getting smaller. I’m keeping a big picture in mind."

Joseph Goodman

Bosh on returning for Christmas: "I hope so, but I’ve been saying that before and they were like, ‘OK, take it easy. Just work today.'"

Ira Winderman

McRoberts and Bosh the Heat's official inactives. They only have to list two.

Joseph Goodman

Wade was a no show in the pregame locker room... RT Wade going or still gtd?

Joseph Goodman

Bosh says he is improving and hoping to play on Christmas, but added that’s not the priority.

Jason Lieser

Bosh says he thinks it's possible he could come back this week. What about Christmas? "I'm hoping."

Ira Winderman

So Whiteside just decided to yank out two of his toenails? RT @Heat4Liife They should admit that they are tanking

Barry Jackson

Dolphins have chance next week for only 2nd winning season in last 9 years. 61-82 in that span(23-24 under Philbin).1 playoff game since '02

Ethan J. Skolnick

It's official: Jeffrey Loria is a better owner than Steve Ross

Barry Jackson

Ross: "I believe in [Philbin]. We're building something great. He's the right guy for this team." Philbin 23-24 here, 7-7 in December.

Joseph Goodman

I asked Birdman about starting three in a row for first time in his career. “Man, I don’t give a &@#% about that. Say I’m ecstatic.”

Barry Jackson

Ross associates have consistently said how much he likes Philbin personally &that he's resistant to change unless feels absolutely compelled

Jason Lieser

Whiteside says the time he fractured his ankle was worse than getting his toenails ripped off. That might be it.

Barry Jackson

Steve Ross announces Joe Philbin is returning as coach

Jason Lieser

Hassan Whiteside says he's out tonight because of those ripped off toenails.

Ira Winderman

Whiteside out tonight.

Joseph Goodman

Whiteside is out tonight.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Don't all rush out for tickets at once. RT @AbramsonPBP Steve Ross says Philbin is coming back

Joseph Goodman

Avery Bradley at the two tonight for the Celtics. Evan Turner coming off the bench.

Surya Fernandez

Video: Heat coach Erik Spoelstra pregame press conference burst.com/h/8l199d3

Joseph Goodman

Whiteside's knees are fine. Toes are jacked up. Welcome (back) to the NBA. RT @MiamiRohan when the hell did all these knee injuries happen?

Ira Winderman

Celtics to give Marcus Smart the start, moving Evan Turner back to bench.

Barry Jackson

Per ESPN, Tannehill first Dolphins QB to throw at least 4 TDs in game since Marino vs. Denver in 1998, Week 16.

Joseph Goodman

Rookie Marcus Smart starting at point guard today for the Celtics. This is Smart’s first start in the NBA.

Ethan J. Skolnick

If not for the clown coaching down the stretch of the Detroit & Green Bay games, the Dolphins win at least 1, and they're alive.

Barry Jackson

.... Wallace: 5-58-2 TDs... Wake 2 sacks... Dolphins outgain Vikings, 493-357... And of course, Fede with blocked punt for winning safety

Barry Jackson

Final nos. from Fins' 37-35 win: Tannehill: 35-47-396-4 TDs, 1 pick; 118.8 rating... Miller:19-92 rushing, 5-58 receiving.Clay:6 catches,114

Jason Lieser

Spoelstra on his plans to move to Aspen: "We got no food, we got no jobs... our CENTER'S TOENAILS ARE FALLING OFF!"

Ira Winderman

This would be Wade's first absence this season due to a knee if he does not play.

Jason Lieser

(Severe Foot Blister would be a decent band name though)

Jason Lieser

#Heat injuries/issues this year: bone spurs in toe, flu, cold, dislocated finger, severe foot blister, toenails ripped off.

Ira Winderman

So, in the end, Dolphins won . . . and done.

Ira Winderman

So Heat could be down four players (Wade, Bosh, McRoberts, Whiteside) and two toenails tonight (Whiteside, big toe and one next to it).

Ethan J. Skolnick

If Steve Ross makes a decision on Joe Philbin based on that game, there's no hope

Jason Lieser

Wade injured his knee vs Washington and was limping around pretty badly before finishing the game. Said afterward he thought he was fine.

Ira Winderman

Heat clarifies Whiteside does not have knee issue, only toenail issues. Sort of like Josh McRoberts' blister, but different.

Surya Fernandez

Hassan Whiteside is also a game time decision because of an issue with his toes. He was injured on Friday, lost two toe nails on a landing.

Jason Lieser

Correction from the Heat-- Hassan Whiteside's knee is fine. The issue is he got two toenails ripped completely off against Washington.

Surya Fernandez

Spoelstra says @Dwyane Wade is questionable for tonight because of a knee contusion. He will be a game time decision.

Jason Lieser

Erik Spoelstra right now talking Reno Bighorns hoops.

Jason Lieser

The Heat have given no timetable whatsoever for Bosh's return. Spoelstra does not rule him out beyond each day's game/practice.

Jason Lieser

No real update on Bosh (strained calf). Still exercising/resting and getting treatment.

Joseph Goodman

Hassan Whiteside is also a game-time decision. He lost two toenails in game on Friday.

Ira Winderman

Bosh still getting treatment, rest, and still out.

Ira Winderman

Birdman will play tonight despite ankle issue.

Jason Lieser

Hassan Whiteside also had two toenails ripped off on that play.

Ira Winderman

Hassan also lost two toenails in his incident.

Joseph Goodman

Wade is questionable with a knee contusion. Game-time decision.

Jason Lieser

Hassan Whiteside also has a bruised knee and might not be available for Heat.

Ira Winderman

Hassan Whiteside also has a knee contusion and is being evaluated now.

Jason Lieser

Erik Spoelstra says Wade has a bruised knee that staff is examining right now. Uncertain for tonight vs Boston.

Ira Winderman

Spoelstra says Wade has knee contusion and is being looked at now.

Surya Fernandez

Dolphins are officially eliminated from the playoffs regardless of how this game ends. Steelers have won.

Jason Lieser

It'll be interesting to see if Chris Andersen is active tonight vs Boston. Tweaked his ankle Friday.

Joseph Goodman

It is physically painful sometimes to watch the #Dolphins play football. Now is one of those times.

Shandel Richardson

How do you get offsides on two straight plays?

Barry Jackson

Pittsburgh goes up 20-9 on KC with 4 minutes left, which -- if this holds -- would eliminate Dolphins from playoff contention.

Surya Fernandez

HEAT announced today that they have recalled guard Andre Dawkins from @SFSkyforce
