Steve Kerr on Curry: "I know I wouldn't trade him for any point guard in the league, that's for sure."

Ethan J. Skolnick

Steve Kerr called the Heat "probably the biggest challenge we've faced all year," because of how well Heat execute. But held Mia to 38.8%.

Tom Haberstroh

Kerr, succinctly, on Curry: "He's unreal."

Ethan J. Skolnick

Steve Kerr: "In the second half we stepped up the defense... and that guy Steph Curry was not bad."

Joseph Goodman

Heat shot 27 percent in the second half, and 17 percent in the fourth quarter.

Shandel Richardson

The Heat begin with highest-scoring quarter of season and end with lowest-scoring quarter of season.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Warriors close w/ 19-2 run, win 114-97. Steph Curry goes for 40 on 19 shots. Plus 7 assists. And it didn't look esp. difficult for him.

Joseph Goodman

FINAL: #Warriors 114, #Heat 97. Warriors closed the game out with a 19-2 run. Curry finished with 40 points.

Barry Jackson

Heat undone by late 14-0 Warriors run, lose 114-97. Bosh 26, Deng 16, Chalmers 14. Curry 40 for Golden State.

Shandel Richardson

33-point swing in this one.

Ethan J. Skolnick

It's safe to say that Steve Kerr picked the right job

Ethan J. Skolnick

Warriors came in as top team in defensive efficiency. Gave up 62 in first half. Have given up just 34 in this one.

Shandel Richardson

Heat scored 62 pts in first half and could fail to reach 100.

Shandel Richardson

I would love to see Steph Curry in place of Kobe Bryant playing for the Lakers and allowed to shoot 35 times a game.

Shandel Richardson

Chalmers is 0 for 8 from field since 1st quarter.

Joseph Goodman

Curry with his eighth three-pointer and fans are filing out. Really? Warriors 104, Heat 95 3:29 left.

Victor Oquendo

Steph Curry is not of this earth.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Napier now w/ 4 turnovers, Chalmers is 4-for-15, and Curry (35 points) is putting this game on ice.

Joseph Goodman

Just a reminder to #Heat fans...your counterparts in Oakland would be standing and losing their collective minds at this point in the game.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Spoelstra was playing Napier-Cole-Chalmers together, until Cole took that 27-footer with 8 left on shot clock. Then summoned Deng.

Jason Jackson

When McRoberts connects on one of those hammers … this place will need foundation repairs … Shooting Josh’s #InsideTheHEAT tomorrow btw

Ethan J. Skolnick

Wade laughing about the McRoberts dunk attempt

Ira Winderman

McBob, holy crap, who knew?

Joseph Goodman

This Heat team is fun to watch right now. They have no business playing this well.

Surya Fernandez

Huge ovation for Ennis and his dunk. Although he didn't score previously, he crashed the boards with a purpose too.

Jason Jackson

The @Miami Heat rookies have the @AAarena attendees on their feet #HeatLive

Ira Winderman

Heat getting the full Ennis tonight. He's 2 of 8 from field, but so much more than that.

Surya Fernandez

Both the Heat and the Warriors have each shot 10-for-18 from 3-point land. Curry is 7-10. Shawne Williams 3-3, Bosh 2-3, Deng 2-3.

Surya Fernandez

Warriors lead the Heat 91-86 entering the final quarter. Curry has 30 points to lead all scorers. Bosh has 21 points, Deng 15, Chalmers 14.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Warriors lead, 91-86, after 3. Curry is 7-for-10 from 3, and has 30, plus 4 rebounds, 6 assists.

Joseph Goodman

#Warriors 91, #Heat 86 entering 4Q. Both teams now 10 of 18 from three-point range.

Ira Winderman

Warriors 91, Heat 86 at end of three. Curry with 30 points, including 7 of 10 on 3s. Klay with 18. Bosh with 21 and 8 for Heat. Deng with 15

Jason Lieser

End Q3: Warriors 91, Heat 86. Golden State has blown some chances to take control. Bosh: 21p, 8r. Curry: 30p, 6a. GSW still shooting 63%.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Curry effect there: Haslem shows hard, no one rotates behind him. Easy layup.

Joseph Goodman

Steph Curry is 7 of 9 from three-point range...and after his seventh make he convulsed a little in celebration...and so did I.

Surya Fernandez

Heat won't beat the Warriors by outshooting them. They'll need to do it by winning 50/50 balls, grabbing o. rebounds, creating turnovers,etc

Ira Winderman

Erik Spoelstra warned Sunday about Curry anywhere within 30 feet. He was right. Curry 7 of 9 on 3s.

Shandel Richardson

The hustle and movement by Josh McRoberts tonight is encouraging.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Steph Curry is prancing, or something. And it's warranted. He's got 29.

Ira Winderman

Luol Deng's off-the-ball cuts clearly rubbing off on James Ennis, who has moved very well without the ball.

Jason Jackson

awesome pro level (bleep) talking between Draymond Green and Shawne Williams last few trips up AND down the floor #HEATLive

Jason Lieser

Shawne Williams 3/3 threes tonight. He's up to 11p. Four #Heat players scoring in double digits.

Ira Winderman

Shawne "Stretch" Williams now doing his Steph Curry imitation.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Napier replacing Cole on court has coincided with the ball getting to the right spots for the Heat

Jason Lieser

Curry is 7/8 on threes so far. He's got 24p, 3a, 3r.

Ira Winderman

Steph Curry now at the just-throwing-them-in stage.

Joseph Goodman

When Steph Curry celebrates a three-point shot, you know it was a good shot.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Steph Curry ridiculous 3. Spoelstra timeout. Pattern established.

Ira Winderman

Cole now 1 of 7 from field. Splinted finger is on non-shooting hand,

Jason Lieser

Norris Cole, playing with a brace on his dislocated finger, is 1/7 FGs tonight.

Ira Winderman

Cole 0 for 3 on 3-pointers. Rest of Heat 8 of 10.

Jason Lieser

Klay Thompson gets his 3rd foul early in Q3, stays in.

Ira Winderman

But Bogut about to enter.

Ira Winderman

Bogut does not start second half for Warriors.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Heat lead 62-61 at half. Bosh w/ 17, Chalmers w/ 14. Curry had 18, and looks like he's just getting started.

Joseph Goodman

#Heat 62, #Warriors 61 at halftime here in Miami. Best half of basketball Heat has played in a while. Bosh 17 pts, Chalmers 14, Deng 12.

Tom Haberstroh

Accounting for 3s, the Warriors are effectively shooting over 70 percent from the floor. And losing. Ridiculous half by the Heat.

Shandel Richardson

So Warriors trim a 16-point deficit to 1 by halftime.

Jason Lieser

HALF: #Heat 62, Warriors 61. Miami was down 9, then up 16. Bosh: 17p, 5r. Chalmers: 14p. FGs: MIA 50%, GSW 62%. Curry with 18p for GSW.

Ira Winderman

Heat, up 16 at one point, go into halftime up 62-61 on Warriors. Bosh with 17, Chalmers 14 and Deng 12. Curry with 18 for Warriors.

Joseph Goodman

Bosh with 17 points in the first half after that excellent move inside. #Heat 62, #Warriors 59

Ira Winderman

Bosh inside and outside tonight.

Ira Winderman

You can't keep a good Warriors offense down. Curry now with four threes. Heat 7 of 10 on 3s. Warriors 7 of 11.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Especially with Wade out, Chalmers has become the Heat's most vocal player, the one telling everyone else where they should be.

Joseph Goodman

#Heat 54, #Warriors 44. Heat 7-of-10 shooting from three-point range to start this game.

Jason Lieser

Warriors on an 8-0 run. Heat lead 54-44, 4:58 left in Q2. Chalmers leads with 14 pts, followed by Bosh (13) and Deng (10).

Ethan J. Skolnick

Spoelstra will need all his timeouts in this one. Curry gets crossed, comes back with 3. Warriors down 10.

Ira Winderman

Klay three, Steph three and, smartly, Spoelstra timeout.

Shandel Richardson

Figured Curry and Thompson weren't going to keep quiet all game.

Jason Jackson

The @Miami Heat have hit 7 of their first 10 3 balls ….up 51-36 midway thru the 2Q on @Golden State Warriors one of the top 3 offenses in the @NBA

Ira Winderman

Josh McRoberts much more active tonight, appears to be getting into a flow.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Napier said the other night that teammates are demanding more aggressiveness from him. Shooting a 20-footer over Bogut should suffice.

Jason Lieser

Miami wasting nothing. Shooting 52% from the field, 6/9 threes and 8/9 FTs. Just 3 TOs so far.

Shandel Richardson

Chalmers has outscored the Warriors Curry/Thompson backcourt.

Surya Fernandez

With Napier's basket, the Heat are now 6-9 from 3-point range so far.

Jason Lieser

Napier loses the ball, punches it to McRoberts, ball back to Napier for a 3. Heat up 48-36 on Warriors, 6:50 left in Q2.

Ira Winderman

Shabazz Napier sets up Andrew Bogut for a 3-pointer. You read that right. Fun stuff so far.

Ira Winderman

Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer among those in the crowd.

Jason Lieser

Heat 40, Warriors 34, 8:43 left in Q2. Chalmers, Bosh & Deng combined: 28p on 10/16.

Shandel Richardson

Ennis: 3 pts, 4 assists, 3 rebounds.

Ira Winderman

Ennis running the spectrum with his play, but active, very active.

Jason Lieser

No middle ground for James Ennis tonight. High highs and low lows.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Steve Kerr to one of the Heat's minority partners, sitting in front row: "What a waste of money. You have to look at my a-- the whole game."

Ethan J. Skolnick

Shaun Livingston will devour Chalmers in the post. This is the problem with being so small.

Surya Fernandez

That was Miami's highest point total for any quarter this season.

Jason Lieser

Heat's 36p in Q1 is their highest in any quarter all year.

Shandel Richardson

36 points are the most the Heat have scored in a quarter this season.

Ira Winderman

That was the Heat's highest-scoring quarter of the season.

Tom Haberstroh

Considering the opponent, that was easily the Heat's best quarter of the season. Hung 36 on the No. 1 defense. Without Dwyane Wade.

Jason Lieser

Heat defense in Q1-- First 4 min: Allowed 16p on 7/8 FGs, forced 0 TOs. Last 8 min: Allowed 14p on 6/13 FGs, forced 3 TOs.

Surya Fernandez

No shortage of points from either team in the first quarter. Heat up 36-30 vs Warriors. Chalmers leads team with 13 points, Deng 8, Bosh 7.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Mario Chalmers, coming off best week of his career, scores 13 in 1st Q, Heat lead Warriors, 36-30. Curry w/ 8.

Joseph Goodman

#Heat 36, #Warriors 30 after the 1Q just like everyone predicted.

Jason Lieser

Fun Q1 for #Heat, going from down 9 to up 10. They lead Golden State 36-30. Chalmers with 13p on 4/6.

Ira Winderman

So even with Wade sidelined, Heat go for 36 in first quarter, lead Warriors 36-30. Chalmers with 13 points.

Jason Jackson

Rio Rio @Mario Chalmers dance across the Rio Grand … 4/6FG 3/3FT doe game leading 13 points #HEATLive

Shandel Richardson

Mario Chalmers must have collected a star before this game.

Ira Winderman

Chalmers with 3 of side inbounds. Already with 13 points.

Ira Winderman

Not reviewing Chalmers' three. It stands.
