Bingo! RT @BenAxelrod: @Ethan J. Skolnick also didn't help that people took quotes from your story & added their own context to them.

I've talked to scouts who see Love thriving as a stretch 4. But it is a transition, with fewer post touches. Which is all Bosh was saying.

Adam Silver, on chance of either side re-opening CBA and possibility of 2017 lockout, "It's premature for even me to be concerned."

Ira Winderman

Adam Silver on lottery and tanking, "I think there's an unfair pressure to some of our teams to actually under-perform."

Bill Reiter

Adam Silver says he has had several conversations with Roger Goodell about what the NFL is looking to do w/domestic violence policies.

Tom Haberstroh

BTW: the Top 25 in my Respect Rating will be published later this week. (Kobe doesn't qualify; not enough mins last season)

Ira Winderman

Adam Silver says if lottery reform eventually is adopted, it will come with teams, "appropriately on notice." So play on . . . 76ers.

Ira Winderman

Of lottery reform as related to tanking, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver calls it, "corrosive perception."

Ira Winderman

Adam Silver says NBA will continue to study lottery reform, speaks on ongoing concern of "unintended consequences."

Bill Reiter

Silver says owners sent draft lottery issue back to competition committee over concerns about "unintended consequences."

Bill Reiter

Among topics discussed at NBA BOG meetings, Adam Silver says, was "domestic violence, diversity and respect in the work place."

Wade knows he will get ball at top more, but also sees post as place he can catch breath, use guile. Watched MJ go there late in career.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Dwyane Wade says primary offseason focus was working in post. Was worried about losing strength w/ diet, but feels stronger than last yr.

Ira Winderman

Spoelstra said he did not play James Ennis because he wanted to give an extended run to Danny Granger.

Jason Lieser

Erik Spoelstra said he held out James Ennis in order to give Danny Granger more time. Granger scored 3p on 1/3 in 16min.

Ira Winderman

Spoelstra said McRoberts won't play Friday in preseason finale in Memphis, but he hopes to get Hamilton in. So no McBob for entire preseason

Jason Lieser

Erik Spoelstra says he doesn't think Josh McRoberts (toe) will play Friday. That would mean he'll miss the entire preseason.

Joseph Goodman

Spoelstra on why Ennis didn't play: "Wanted to get Danny some minutes, and have him play through that and play through some fatigue."

Victor Oquendo

Miami Police are looking for these two. Wanted for kidnapping and robbing a woman. The story at 11 on @WPLGLocal10 http://t.co/Na5thM7Nun

Jason Lieser

Erik Spoelstra says it's not necessarily set that Norris Cole will start and Mario Chalmers will come off the bench as a combo guard.

Jason Lieser

Heat shot 8/27 on threes tonight.

Jason Lieser

Wade looked pretty healthy tonight. He put up 26p on 11/17, 6a, hit a 3-pointer.

Ira Winderman

Heat edge Rockets in preseason home finale before a season of change for both, as Wade scores 26, Bosh 22. bit.ly/1Dy1Smk

Ethan J. Skolnick

Dwyane Wade finishes 11-for-17 for 26 points. Mostly midrange, w/ 3 FTs. Expect him to take final preseason game off.

Surya Fernandez

Chalmers misses both free throws and the Heat hold on to a 5 point lead with 34 seconds left. This one isn't over just yet.

Ira Winderman

The Heat need THESE fans during regular reason, legitimately into it even for a game that doesn't count.

Surya Fernandez

Heat dodged a bullet there. 86-83 with 48.9 seconds left. Can the Heat avoid playing in another overtime game?

Ethan J. Skolnick

Kevin McHale letting Howard & Harden sit this out, as 5 subs finish. Spoelstra still playing starters. Trying to get rhythm.

Joseph Goodman

Heat 84, Rockets 81 with 2:49 left. Please, God, anything but overtime.

Micky Arison

Great crowd tonight. #HEATNation you are the best #LetsGoHEAT

Ira Winderman

Khem Birch just might be your Heat 15th man, at least until Josh McRoberts is a full go in the power rotation.

Surya Fernandez

Rockets went 1-6 in the third quarter from beyond the arc after knocking down 8 in the first half.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Rookie night for Napier, who is 0-for-5 and just got torched by Ish Smith.

Jason Lieser

Bosh: 20p on 7/11, 2/3 threes, 4r, 3a in 28min. so far.

Jason Lieser

Shabazz Napier also in to start Q4. His night so far: 0p on 0/5, 0a, 0 TO in 12 min.

Jason Lieser

Heat notables who haven't played yet tonight: Udonis Haslem, James Ennis. Danny Granger has gotten just 11min, but he's in to start Q4.

Surya Fernandez

Heat have the lead 70-67 entering the final quarter. Chalmers scored 9 points, Bosh 6 in the third quarter.

Jason Lieser

End Q3: Heat 70, Rockets 67. Mario Chalmers having a nice game off the bench: 13p on 3/5, 3a, 3s.

Ira Winderman

Heat 70, Rickets 67 at end of three. Wade with 19, Bosh with 17. Chalmers with an impressive 13

Ira Winderman

Chalmers banks in three, and Heat lead after trailing by 13. Place impressively loud for preseason.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Safe to say that Mario Chalmers has his confidence back

Surya Fernandez

Heat fight back and have tied it at 67-67

Ira Winderman

Game basically Wade (19) and Bosh (17) against Howard (19) and Harden (19), in a league when Big Twos not exactly in vogue.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Miami isn't especially big, doesn't have elite athleticism & is at least one shooter short. Needs to be elite defensively.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Not sure the Chris Andersen stepback jumper is sustainable, but there's a certain charm to it.

Surya Fernandez

Birdman with the difficult step-back jumper while Howard guards him tightly. AA Arena explodes with cheer.

Ira Winderman

Birdman with another jumper . . . and conversion. Ca-caw?

Ira Winderman

Heat now 4 of 15 on 3-pointers. Rockets 9 of 19.

Jason Lieser

Mario Chalmers was instructing Shawne Williams before that first FT, missed it, immediately went back to instructing.

Surya Fernandez

I'm not sure what Wade was thinking on that last play but with 19 points on 9-12 shooting in 19 minutes, he's been deadly efficient.

Jason Lieser

Weird preseason for Luol Deng. Scored 18+ twice, was at 4 or under twice. He's got 2p on 1/3 in 22min. tonight.

Ira Winderman

Wade with careless offensive possession creates and-one opportunity for Rockets.

Ira Winderman

Patrick Beverley is wonderfully psychotic on defense (and a tad dirty, as well).

Ira Winderman

Patrick Beverley, the pest that he is, draws a technical foul on Chalmers for a retaliatory elbow.

Ira Winderman

Cole with four fouls after 14 minutes of action.

Ira Winderman

Looks like Wade might score a lot of points this season. The Heat?

Ira Winderman

Looking like James Ennis, Udonis Haslem, Shannon Brown will be on outside of rotation. And McRoberts will only further change the equation.

Surya Fernandez

Cole takes his time getting up after hitting the deck, then calmly waits for the ball and knocks down the corner 3 to make it 51-54
