Repeat after me: The Heat isn't tanking. The Heat isn't tanking. The Heat isn't tanking. RT @MDaUShah ready to rethink ur tanking question?

Surya Fernandez

Wade has 27 points through 3 quarters on the second night of a back-to-back set. Deng is second on the team with just 8. Not enough support.

Joseph Goodman

#Jazz 77, #Heat 59 entering after the 3Q. Heat 1 of 10 from 3-pt range and 20 of 30 from the free-throw line.

Ira Winderman

Jazz 77, Heat 59 going into fourth. Heat about to fall to 4-8 at home.

Joseph Goodman

Justin Hamilton just took a jarring elbow to the chin. He's coming out.

Ira Winderman

Wade's fourth foul. Exhaustion at this point.

Ira Winderman

These are not the best of times for Udonis Haslem.

Ira Winderman

Now Hamilton for the first time in the second half, as the wheel of rotations goes round and round.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Following on that last tweet, that's the only positive of Bosh's injury: Wade gets a sense of what his capabilities still are as #1 option.

Surya Fernandez

Miami has outscored Utah 14-7 through the first 5 minutes of the third quarter.

Ethan J. Skolnick

At this point, I really believe that all that's separating Wade from being who he was is believing he's who he was. And he's getting closer.

Ira Winderman

Wade in a 2006 offensive zone. Up to 27, with 7:04 left in third.

Shandel Richardson

Dwyane Wade is putting the team on his back.

Ira Winderman

Birdman asking out at 7:30 mark of third period.

Shandel Richardson

Heat finally cut the lead to under 10. We have a game again.

Ira Winderman

Heat within nine of 6-19 Jazz.

Ira Winderman

Heat iso Deng on Hayward. There needs to be more of that.

Surya Fernandez

Heat had a chance to cut the deficit to single-digits before Deng gave the ball away which led to the Hayward jumper.

Ira Winderman

Heat open second half with Shawne Williams in place of Justin Hamilton. Lineup-a-go-go

Ira Winderman

Well, at least there's a hip-hop Hanukkah halftime show.

Joseph Goodman

#Jazz 55, #Heat 41. Wade w/23 points. Heat 0 of 7 from 3-point range. Jazz shooting 55.9 percent (8 of 11 from 3). Hayward w/18.

Ira Winderman

Jazz 55, Heat 41 at half. Wade with 23 for Heat, no one else with more than six. Jazz at .559 from field, Heat 0 for 7 on threes.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Halftime in Miami: Jazz 55, Wade 23, rest of Heat 18. (Miami bench is 1-for-11). It's suddenly 2007-08.

Ira Winderman

Two Ts on Trevor Booker and he is ejected, for arguing ball out of bounds off missed Heat free throw.

Ira Winderman

Just not sure jumpers are what the Heat were looking for when they started Birdman.

Ira Winderman

Hey, but at least no leaks tonight.

Ira Winderman

No one moving on offense for Heat.

Ira Winderman

Heat offense: Give it to Wade. He has 16, rest of Heat have 16.

Ira Winderman

Heat stop Jazz 5 on 3 in transition, no one else gets back, Favors draws foul. Ugly.

Surya Fernandez

Jazz coach Quin Snyder upset with the free throw shooting disparity. He's pointing out the Heat have 20 FT attempts, Jazz just 3.

Ira Winderman

Jazz now 7 of 9 on 3-pointers.

Jason Jackson

Don’t miss the next edition of #RonsRewind on HEAT Halftime on @SunSportsHEAT ….should be a doozie #HEATLive

Ira Winderman

Wade 3 of 4. Rest of Heat 4 of 17.

Surya Fernandez

Heat's 16 points was their second lowest first quarter point total this season. They had 15 vs Clippers on 11/20.

Shandel Richardson

That's two pump-fakes for Wade this game. When will they learn?

Ethan J. Skolnick

Learned this about Australian-product Dante Exum: He doesn't understand the rules of cricket either.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Dante Exum's 3-pointer gives Jazz 38-20 lead. He's one of 3 healthy rookies in NBA.

Ira Winderman

Jazz 5 of 6 on 3-pointers, Heat 0 for 4.

Joseph Goodman

Good news: Heat is home for the holidays with a seven-game home stand. Bad news: Heat is 4-7 at home and down 17 in the 2Q to Utah.

Tom Haberstroh

Rudy Gobert just Euro-stepped around Udonis Haslem on a fastbreak layup. Papi is grunting.

Ira Winderman

Five-second inbounding violation on Jazz. Sound familiar?

Ira Winderman

And now Heat at .278 from field.

Surya Fernandez

Not helping matters: Heat shooting 7/14 from the free throw line.

Ira Winderman

Now an airball from Napier. Oh, and Heat 7 of 14 from the line.

Surya Fernandez

Jazz reserve Rudy Gobert's statline from last week's Heat game: 9 points, 11 rebounds, 5 blocks, 4 assists in 26 minutes.

Joseph Goodman

#Jazz 33, #Heat 16 after 1Q? Yeah, the Chris Andersen Starting Experience might be a one-night-only show.

Ira Winderman

Heat open 2nd quarter with a lineup of Udonis Haslem, Shawne Williams, James Ennis, Mario Chalmers, Shabazz Napier. Allow that to marinate.

Shandel Richardson

Jazz shoot 65 percent in first quarter. In pregame, Spoelstra said he was happy w/ improved defense.

Ira Winderman

Jazz 33, Heat 16 at end of first. Hayward with 13 points on 4 of 4. Heat at .313 from field, Jazz shooting 65 percent.

Victor Oquendo

"His release is the tip of the iceberg that's starting to melt between the U.S. and Cuba," Michael Putney on Alan Gross.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Jazz lead Heat, 33-16, after 1Q. Heat have lost 6 of 7 at home, & only win was by 1 vs. Charlotte. Hayward has 13.

Tom Haberstroh

I'm sitting next to Papi @LeBatardShow at UTA-MIA tonight. I've counted 37 facepalms and 73 obscenities in multiple languages.

Surya Fernandez

Jazz executing very well and they're getting the shots they want: 13-19 FGs, almost 70% from the field and 4-5 from long range.

Jason Jackson

The @Miami Heat maybe playing their challenging 3rdQ style in the first quarter …down 17 in the 1stQ #HEATLive

Ira Winderman

Make that Jazz's .722. Down 17.

Ira Winderman

This time Ennis early. He need something. Shooting .385 to Jazz's .706.

Ira Winderman

Heat down 15 with 2:25 left in first quarter. Home woes continue.

Ira Winderman

Make that 4 for 4 Jazz on 3-pointers, and 11 of 16 from the field. Yup, back to that.

Surya Fernandez

Jazz executing better then the Heat and they're getting the shots they want: 10-15, .667 from the field and a perfect 3-3 from long range.

Ira Winderman

Jazz now 3 of 3 on 3-pointers, two by Hayward.

Ira Winderman

Only players yet to start for Heat this season: Napier, Whiteside, Dawkins.

Ira Winderman

Heat have now utilized 11 different starting lineups over their first 26 games, with 13 different starters.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Chris Andersen thinks he's a stretch four now.

Ira Winderman

With Bosh, McRoberts out, Birdman gets first start in Heat uniform. bit.ly/1Aex3CW

Ethan J. Skolnick

This is Chris Andersen's first start for the Heat, and just the 11th of his career.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Starters in Miami tonight: Hamilton, Andersen, Deng, Wade, Cole vs. Kanter, Favors, Hayward, Burks, Burke.

Surya Fernandez

Make sure to tune in to the @SunSportsHEAT pregame show with @Jason Jackson where I'll make an appearance shortly on the Reporter's Roundtable.

Surya Fernandez

Another Heat game, another different starting lineup.

Surya Fernandez

#Heat starters: Norris Cole, Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng, Justin Hamilton and..drum roll.... Chris Andersen.

Ira Winderman

For starters: A look at lineups, inactives, referees and a pregame note of note for Heat-Jazz bit.ly/13zJMnE 7:30 p.m. (Sun Sports).

Ira Winderman

Something new: Heat to start Chris Andersen tonight alongside Hamilton. Yes, another new lineup.

Ira Winderman

Interesting with McRoberts saying he will try to make it back, considering Heat need him to be considered out for season to get exception.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Josh McRoberts: "I was finally starting to feel a rhythm."

Ethan J. Skolnick

Josh McRoberts: "I'm going to do whatever I can to make it back."

Ethan J. Skolnick

Josh McRoberts on his situation: "I didn't think it was this serious." Having surgery early next week.

Tom Haberstroh

SportVU stat: Kevin Love again leads NBA in TD passes -- 18 outlet passes of 20+ feet to start fastbreak this season. es.pn/1uTOnqt

Tom Haberstroh

Ty Corbin coached Utah. This Jazz Director thing finally makes sense.

Ira Winderman

Uh, oh. Derrick Favors back for Jazz tonight. Then again, less Gobert reaching over the top of Heat big men.

Surya Fernandez

Spoelstra says Granger is questionable tonight vs Jazz. Bosh, McRoberts are out. Wade will play.

Ira Winderman

More Spoelstra, on being shorthanded, "You have to have guys who don't feel sorry for themselves."

Ira Winderman

Spoelstra, on being so shorthanded, "What we did yesterday was almost laughed at it."

Shandel Richardson

Danny Granger (flu) is a game time decision

Ira Winderman

Spoelstra says Granger saw doctor today and will try to show up. Wade feels better and will go. McRoberts and Bosh out.
