HoopsHype Miami Heat twitter
Kansas City. Hell yes.
A late-inning bunt in a close playoff game ... never fails.
With Big 3 you can (almost) get away with playing 4-on-5 on the offensive side, not so with this season's squad.
I'm not as high on Birch as others. Just seems like Joel Anthony 2.0
The return of Hamilton and (soon) McRoberts gives the Heat some needed size and more shooting.
Heat looked surprisingly good tonight despite so many missing players and deserved their 4th consecutive win.
FINAL: Heat 104, Grizzlies 98. Four in a row for the Heat to finish the preseason. LET'S GET THIS SEASON STARTED.
So Heat lose first 4 exhibitions (2 in overtime), then win final 4. It's going to be a wild ride this season. Starts Wednesday vs. Wizards.
Nice work by the Heat reserves to boost the lead back to double-digits after the Grizzlies got it down to 3.
If Andre Dawkins could work himself into Ray Allen shape he could be somebody. Otherwise, he's limited.
And when debating keeping both Khem Birch and Andre Dawkins over Shannon Brown, should Justin Hamilton be a roster lock?
Dawkins with a 3, Birch with the block, Ennis with a slam. Not used to seeing the Heat with so many young guys with upside.
James Ennis going to dunk on some folks this season. Get ready.
Andre Dawkins does one thing very well, something the Heat need. So keep both Khem Birch and Dawkins (and maybe not Shannon Brown)?
Justin Hamilton, stone cold.
Heat have a solid chance of winning their 4th straight and they were very competitive in their OT losses and versus Hawks.
Heat scouting and player personnel dept. deserves praise for this preseason. They have identified and cultivated some nice young talent.
With Heat limited on wing, with Deng and Granger out, Heat in third went with Napier, Chalmers and Cole together. Small(est) ball.
Bosh, now with 19 points, along with Wade have been efficient and deadly accurate with their offense. Bosh has been aggressive all night.
Norris Cole with six assists and finding easy points for teammates. Heat 69, Grizzlies 61 3Q
Heat maintaining a double-digit lead with balanced scoring.
Chris Bosh is a handful when he can score like that off the dribble.
Heat 56, Grizzlies 48 to start the second half in Memphis. Encouraging stuff from Wade highlighting the night.
I don't think Chris Bosh will ever stop referring to Ennis as "rook."
Thought Wade was done when he returned from halftime wearing some pillow-sized bandages on knees.
Heat up 54-48 Grizzlies at the half with Wade (16 points, 7-8 FGs) and Bosh (13 points, 6-10 FGs) leading the way.
Dwyane Wade vs. Tayshaun Prince. Just had a flashback to 2005
Dwyane Wade is 18 of 25 over the past two games. Regular season ready, it appears.
James Ennis looked a lot better against third- and fourth-string talent earlier in the preseason. It's why expectations have to be tempered.
Zach Randolph is hustling out there like it's the NBA Finals
Of course, we'll have to see how that translates to the regular season.
Just looks like Wade is doing a better job of pacing himself this year.
Another solid start for Wade.
Mario Chalmers clearly the Heat front-runner as backup shooting guard. Shannon Brown has shown little, James Ennis simply not ready yet.
With McRoberts out, with Birdman dealing with aches, Khem Birch could have inside line on 15th and final roster spot.
Shannon Brown in for Heat. Hasn't shown much in preseason and along with Andre Dawkins is only remaining player without a guarantee.
For those tuning in late, no Deng, Granger, McRoberts, Haslem or Birdman for Heat, but Hamilton making preseason debut.
First preseason action for Justin Hamilton
Again, we're seeing the Cole-Chalmers backcourt.
Wade to James on a fast break opportunity just isn't the same...
Heat now getting to Wade's post-up game, something they'll need, as Shawne Williams sets up at 3-point line in Heat's inverted reality.
Deng is out with lower-back tightness, never a good sign five days before the opener.
No Luol Deng for Heat, so you get your wish: James Ennis starting. And this is the seventh consecutive exhibition that Cole starts at point
Pretty sure there were more people on Beale Street than inside FedEx Forum now for preseason finale.
Birdman, Deng, McRoberts, Haslem and Granger are all out tonight vs Grizzlies.
Chris Andersen and Haslem not expected to play
Justin Hamilton will play tonight
B Terminal at ATL = yessssss http://t.co/6EPLHxlr6k
Pelicans trim their roster to the regular-season limit of 15, with former Gator forward Patric Young making the cut to this stage.
Jimmy Wilson doubtful and Koa Misi questionable for Dolphins on Sunday.
I look forward to hearing his HOF speech..
Steve Nash has had an amazing/ inspiring career and I wanna thank him 4 giving the game everything he had..if this is the end
Wade had some very interesting thoughts on Steve Nash. Will post later.
No1 wants their season/career 2 end in injury but is it ever a good time 4 it 2 end? All you can do is give it all you have when you have it
Safe to say Heat are enjoying being out of the media spotlight.
After my "exclusive" with Erik Spoelstra, assistant Dave Fizdale said: "Man, Spo you got it lucky now."
After my "exclusive" with Dwyane Wade, he went out of his way to offer this: "I have a scoop for you. Luol's nickname is Big Lou."
Only media member at today's Heat shootaround in Memphis.
BOSH: "It was a struggle for me to find my way the past four years. I have developed an appreciation for the position I’m now in.”
UM says Duke Johnson's 249-yard rushing game tonight is first 200-plus yard rushing game for Miami since McGahee's 205 vs. Va Tech in 2002.
Duke with 210 yards rushing after 3. Fourth all time in game at UM. Edgerrin James with UM record of 299 vs. UCA in 1998.
UM up 24-0 at half,out-gaining Va. Tech,255-36.Before tonight,UM played 14 ACC road games under Golden & allowed 33.7 ppg,never less than 23
