Ethan J. Skolnick

Ennis w/ four fouls, nothing else of significance in 11 minutes. He has a future, but the Heat need a backup 2 for now.

Ira Winderman

Have to figure, at the least, the Heat will summon Tyler Johnson back by Friday's game against the Mavericks.

Ethan J. Skolnick

That was the third assist of Hassan Whiteside's career. Manny & Floyd here to see it.

Surya Fernandez

With 5 minutes left in the 3rd quarter, the Heat have already surpassed their point total from the 2nd quarter.

Ethan J. Skolnick

This is the other hamstring for Wade, not the one that kept him out earlier this month.

Joseph Goodman

Whiteside inside for a layup and flexes his biceps while I furiously type this boxing story. Heat 73, Bucks 64 5:18 3Q.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Most impressive play of night for Whiteside. Spins baseline past Henson, then gives crowd the guns. Now w/ 10 & 8. Hanging with it.

Surya Fernandez

Wade will not return to the game because of a strained right hamstring.

Ira Winderman

Wade's hamstring a huge issue now. The hamstring issues have been ongoing. And this team does not have backup shooting guard.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Dwyane Wade (right hamstring strain) will not return.

Ira Winderman

Wade right hamstring strain. Will not return.

Joseph Goodman

Wade right hamstring injury will not return.

Surya Fernandez

Heat are on a 12-2 run since the Bucks opened up a 7-point lead at the start of the third quarter. Chalmers has 7 of those points.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Chalmers now 5-for-5 for 13 points & 5 assists, and about to declare himself the best fighter in the building.

Ira Winderman

Wade to Heat locker room.

Ira Winderman

This time Cole enters as first point off bench in second half, not Napier.

Joseph Goodman

PACQUIAO on conversation with Mayweather: "He gave his number to me and then said we would communicate with each other."

Ira Winderman

Pacquiao now has Mayweather's cell number.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Say this for both guys, too: they're 2 of the 8,000 or so people in their seats as the third quarter starts.

Ira Winderman

Mayweather said it was important to get with Pacquiao to eliminate "the lies" that have been out there.

Ira Winderman

Mayweather walked over to Pacquiao, who said it was the first time he had every spoken to Mayweather.

Ethan J. Skolnick

So if Manny & Floyd really did patch up some things tonight, we may have witnessed history. And it happened at a Bucks game.

Joseph Goodman

Mayweather walked over to Pacquiao and engaged in a conversation. Mayweather said he wanted to talk about all the lies.

Joseph Goodman

Manny Pacquiao says he is confident he’ll fight Mayweather. Also said this is the first time they have ever spoken.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Floyd & Manny had a conversation & a handshake at halftime. I'm in favor of the players clearing out if they want to take care of this now.

Ira Winderman

Mayweather's entourage now taking pictures of Pacquiao's media scrum.

Ira Winderman

Yes, this is the best Heat halftime show ever.

Ira Winderman

Pacquiao now doing media. The plot thickens.

Ira Winderman

Six bodyguards then surround Mayweather as he walks back to his seat. Pacquiao seemingly sitting without personal security detail.

Surya Fernandez

Hassan Whiteside has 4 points (1-6 FGs), 7 rebounds, 0 blocks and 0 fouls in 17 minutes.

Ira Winderman

Mayweather initiating, walking over to Pacquiao's seat just following halftime buzzer.

Ira Winderman

Pacquiao and Mayweather now talking at midcourt.

Surya Fernandez

Bucks lead Heat 54-50 at halftime. Bosh leads his team with 13 points, Wade has 12, Granger 11.

Joseph Goodman

Manny Pacquiao and Mayweather talking courtside. This is intense.

Joseph Goodman

Bucks 54, Heat 50 at halftime. Bosh 13 points, Wade 12, Granger 11. Whiteside 7 rebounds and four on 1-of-6 shooting.

Ira Winderman

Bucks 54, Heat 50 at half. Bosh with 13, Wade 12, Granger 11.

Ethan J. Skolnick

The Chalmers-Cole backcourt is back.

Ira Winderman

Granger 4 of 4 tonight after not being used Sunday in Chicago.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Those were "MVP" chants for Whiteside.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Whiteside now 1-for-6. Well, Wilt had off nights too (I think.)

Ira Winderman

Call stands, common foul on Mayo.

Ira Winderman

So perhaps Deng is more essential for Heat than Whiteside?

Ira Winderman

Checking for a flagrant on Mayo.

Joseph Goodman

Whiteside 1-of-5 shooting and has missed three consecutive layups.

Ira Winderman

Heat down 10 at home to Bucks midway through second period. Another flat home showing.

Joseph Goodman

Bucks 41, Heat 35 5:41 2Q. Someone just won a year's supply of Grand Slams at Denny's during the timeout.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Jason Kidd is probably leading candidate for Coach of the Year in any other season. This season, probably a distant 3rd.

Surya Fernandez

Heat haven't been able to get Whiteside going offensively yet. Henson's size has helped limited him.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Whiteside frustrated after last two possessions. Thought he was fouled on first one, had shot blocked on 2nd.

Ira Winderman

Heat shooting .609 and losing by five.

Ira Winderman

Norris Cole about to enter. Clearly not being traded tonight.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Chalmers has outplayed Napier by a wide margin so far tonight. Five assists, not making mistakes.

Surya Fernandez

Heat are shooting 12/18 (66.7%) from the field so far, which includes Napier's difficult 3-point attempt at the end of the 1st quarter.

Surya Fernandez

Bucks lead 30-29 at the end of the first quarter. Heat allowed the most points in a first quarter since Dec. 17 vs Jazz (33).

Ethan J. Skolnick

Miami shooting 70.6%, but trails 30-29 to Milwaukee after Q1. Brandon Knight, Khris Middleton w/ 10 apiece. Whiteside 2 pts, 2 rebs.

Jason Jackson

3 is a magic number for Granger so far tonight … 3/3

Ira Winderman

Bucks 30, Heat 29 at end of one. Bosh and Granger will nine apiece for Heat. Pacquiao and Mayweather scoreless.

Surya Fernandez

Granger perfect from the field with three 3-pointers in the first quarter.

Ira Winderman

Granger now 3 of 3 on 3-pointers.

Ira Winderman

The video board read, "Coming in 2015?"

Ira Winderman

Pacquiao and Mayweather shown on big screen. Neither offers more than a smirk. Yet a LeBron-like buzz in building after the introductions.

Tom Haberstroh

Pacquiao + Floyd Mayweather Jr are sitting courtside opposite each other here. The jumbotron just showed them with a msg: "Coming in 2015?"

Joseph Goodman

Pacquiao and Mayweather introduced at AmericanAirlines Arena. Videoboard reads, "Coming in 2015?"

Ethan J. Skolnick

Floyd Mayweather, Jr., gets a much louder reaction than Manny Pacquiao, good & bad. Heat put them on video splitscreen w/ "Coming in 2015?"

Joseph Goodman

Confirmed: Manny Pacquiao on one side of the court at the Heat game tonight and Mayweather on the other side by Heat bench.

Joseph Goodman

Is Manny Pacquiao sitting courtside at the Heat game tonight? My eyes aren't so good anymore.

Ira Winderman

Heat shooting .857, and losing by two.

Ira Winderman

It's on, tonight, here at AmericanAirlines Arena: Pacquiao vs. Mayweather . . . seated opposite each other for Heat-Bucks.

Micky Arison

Great to have @FloydMayweather and @mannypacquiao here for the @Miami Heat game tonight. The @AAarena can host a fight too #JustSaying

Ethan J. Skolnick

The Bucks are avoiding the paint so far -- they're just making outside shots.

Surya Fernandez

Whiteside gets his first dunk of the game. It won't be his last tonight.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Whiteside will get 3-4 dunks per game if he just runs the floor with Wade

Joseph Goodman

We're all just another block in the wall. RT @CPoTweetsStuff @Joseph Goodman http://t.co/CPX86ojqa7

Joseph Goodman

People are clapping for Hassan Whiteside. #TwitterSide

Shandel Richardson

Like the dunk contest field, but would have been neat to see Tyler Johnson in there.

Ira Winderman

Most fascinating part of Giannis Antetokounmpo being named to All-Star dunk contest is last Buck to compete in it was . . . Ray Allen ('97).

Joseph Goodman

TONIGHT'S STARTERS Heat (20-24): Granger, Bosh, Whiteside, Wade, Chalmers Bucks (22-22: Antetokounmpo, Ilyasova, Pachulia, Middleton, Knight

Ira Winderman

Luol Deng, Chris Andersen out Tuesday for Heat vs. Bucks, so more Granger and Whiteside. bit.ly/1zVs2Rx

Joseph Goodman

SPOELSTRA on Brandon Knight: “I won’t tell you how I voted, but we view him as an All-Star.”

Ethan J. Skolnick

Spoelstra on the Bucks: "We have great respect for this team. How could we not? They've beaten us twice."

Surya Fernandez

Spoelstra says Danny Granger will "most likely" start in place of Deng.

Barry Jackson

Heat says Deng and Andersen won't play tonight because of injury. Granger and Whiteside likely starters instead, Heat says.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Since I know my followers are from different cities, here's my usual PSA for those who wish to mute: at ... tmi.me/1eXMgQ

Joseph Goodman

Granger starting for Luol Deng most likely, says Spoelstra.

Ira Winderman

Spoelstra says Granger likely to start at small forward, with Whiteside to start at center.

Joseph Goodman

Spoelstra on Whiteside: “He’s much more alert on the weak side.”

Ethan J. Skolnick

Asked Spoelstra about whether there are any minute limitations on Whiteside? "No." So he can go as long as necessary? "Um hmm."

Surya Fernandez

#Heat coach Spoelstra just said Luol Deng (calf) and Birdman (back, elbow) will be out tonight vs Bucks.

Joseph Goodman

Birdman has a sore elbow and back.

Ira Winderman

Spoelstra says it's Birdman's elbow and back.

Joseph Goodman

Birdman and Luol Deng both out tonight against the Bucks.

Surya Fernandez

Ethan J. Skolnick

The best thing about covering the NBA is no longer covering Super Bowl media day
