Ethan J. Skolnick

Arron Affalo, after a terrible start to season, has 17 tonight, after 18 & 17 in past two games. Cavaliers leaving him open repeatedly.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Timofey Mozgov -- who played for David Blatt on Russian team and who Cavaliers reportedly tried to acquire -- is hurting Cleveland tonight.

Ira Winderman

Chalmers sure seems to get himself elbowed a bunch. Must be his endearing on-court personna.

Jason Lieser

With Wade & Deng out, Bosh has 4p on 1/5 FGs in 13 min. Mario Chalmers leads Miami with 9p. Game tied at 34 with 3:33 left in Q2.

Joseph Goodman

All three rookies on the court for the #Heat: James Ennis, Andre Dawkins and Shabazz Napier.

Ira Winderman

An Andre Dawkins sighting. Which says what about Shannon Brown?

Jason Lieser

Bosh scores inside. First FG of the game. Heat down 27-21, 8:45 left in Q2.

Jason Lieser

Brooklyn has 5 TOs and the Heat have no points off those.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Someone send me a #leaguepassalert when the Heat score their next point (especially if it's Bosh).

Jason Lieser

Heat with 19 points in the first 15 minutes. They're 6/20 overall, 0/7 threes.

Surya Fernandez

Neither team is shooting particularly well to start the game. But Heat have now missed last 7 FGs, now at 6-19 (.316), 0-7 in 3-pointers.

Surya Fernandez

Nets seemed to outplay the Heat in many facets of the game but it didn't amount to much of a lead by the end of the first quarter.

Jason Lieser

The Heat played 9 of their 11 or 12 (Hamilton's status unclear) available players in Q1. Seven scored, led by Chris Andersen's 5.

Joseph Goodman

#Heat finished the first quarter with Napier, Chalmers, Ennis, S.Williams and Haslem. Nets 21, Heat 19 entering 2Q.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Nuggets competing in Cleveland, up 53-52 at half. Strong starts for Afflalo/Lawson (24 points, 10 assists). Love w/ 15 & 8. LeBron w/ 11.

Jason Lieser

Heat shot 6/13 with 5 TOs in Q1.

Ira Winderman

Nets 21, Heat 19 at end of one. Chris Bosh yet to take a shot. Birdman with five to lead Heat. Williams with seven for Nets.

Jason Lieser

End Q1: Nets 21, Heat 19. Miami closes the quarter with Mario Chalmers, Shabazz Napier, Udonis Haslem, Shawne Williams & James Ennis.

Surya Fernandez

Heat giving up offensive rebounds and turning the ball over with dangerous passes.

Jason Lieser

Nets 17, Heat 14, 3:37 left in Q1. D. Granger has 2p on 1/2 FGs so far in his debut. Bosh (12/49 FGs last 3 games) has yet to take a shot.

Ira Winderman

Eight minutes in and Chris Bosh has yet to record a FGA. The Big Facilitator?

Ira Winderman

Birdman with the 21-foot jumper. Welcome to bizarro night.

Ira Winderman

Scotch that, didn't see Bird in there.

Jason Jackson

Welcome to the @Miami Heat @Danny Granger ….congrats on your first Miami basket #HEATLive

Jason Lieser

Danny Granger breaks through with a hard drive for a layup.

Jason Lieser

Danny Granger, out of practice, gets the ball in the L corner and steps out of bounds behind himself before driving to the hoop.

Ira Winderman

Shawne Williams opens defensively against Lopez,with keeping Bosh out of foul trouble a priority.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Cavs up 2 after 1Q. They're 28th in NBA in FG% against & Denver just shot 52.4% in 1Q. Wrote this about it today: ble.ac/1xRwVIh

Ira Winderman

So two games ago, James Ennis was good enough to start. Now the Heat are (apparently) rushing back Danny Granger as an emergency starter?

Barry Jackson

Ethan J. Skolnick

Surprised there were no boos for Darrell Arthur in Cleveland, after what he did to Dion Waiters in Denver.

Surya Fernandez

Didn't see this coming - #Heat starters: Granger (season debut), Cole, Chalmers, Williams, Bosh. No Wade, Deng or McRoberts tonight vs Nets.

Barry Jackson

Danny Granger, starting in his Heat reg. season debut tonight, has played just 46 games (and started 2) in past 2 seasons. Wade, Deng out.

Joseph Goodman

I got a sprained foot, but my team needs me tonight. #HeraldNation

Ira Winderman

Not only is Wade out for the Heat tonight (as well as McRoberts), but Granger is starting in place of ailing Deng. bit.ly/1wQfx2F

Jason Lieser

Here's what Wade said about his workout today, his first since straining his hamstring: heatzone.blog.palmbeachpost.com/2014/11/17/hea…

Joseph Goodman

Danny Granger is starting for Luol Deng tonight.

Ira Winderman

When Chris Bosh goes out to jump center, he will see himself surrounded by Shawne Williams, Danny Granger, Norris Cole and Mario Chalmers.

Jason Lieser

This will be Danny Granger's debut for the Heat. Had been out with hamstring and hip flexor issues.

Ira Winderman

And out of nowhere, Danny Granger is starting in place of Luol Deng, who is out with a sore right wrist.

Jason Lieser

Heat to start Norris Cole, Mario Chalmers, Danny Granger, Shawne Williams & Chris Bosh.

Joseph Goodman

With a team suddenly limited by injuries, #Heat coach Erik Spoelstra finds himself relying on Mario Chalmers bit.ly/1xRmCnq

Jason Lieser

Deng (wrist) was going to get x-rays before the game, "but from the look of it and the feel of it, it’s badly sprained."

Ira Winderman

How far they've fallen: A healthy Andrei Kirilenko is inactive tonight for the Nets.

Jason Lieser

Josh McRoberts showed me a picture of his foot blister. I vomited a little. Blister is hardly a strong enough word.

Jason Lieser

Luol Deng says his sprained R wrist (shooting wrist) hurts on every shot. If it was his L wrist he'd play.

Ira Winderman

Luol Deng waiting to take X-rays on his wrist, says he was hurt on a third-quarter fastbreak Sunday on a layup he missed.

Jason Lieser

Luol Deng (sprained wrist) says he isn't sure yet but thinks he is out tonight vs BKN. So no Deng, Wade or McRoberts.

Ira Winderman

Dwyane Wade misses third consecutive game with strained left hamstring. bit.ly/1wQfx2F

Ethan J. Skolnick

Dwyane Wade, as expected, missing 3rd straight game tonight, in Brooklyn, all due to hamstring.

Joseph Goodman

Spoelstra says Chalmers needs to be a starter and back-up. “Welcome to our team.”

Shandel Richardson

McRoberts and Wade once again out for the Heat.

Ira Winderman

Wade is shooting pregame but only to get work in.

Ira Winderman

Deng has a sore wrist and will be game time.

Jason Lieser

Luol Deng (wrist) is questionable tonight at BKN.

Joseph Goodman

Wade is out tonight against the Nets. Deng is questionable.

Ira Winderman

Spoelstra says Wade is out.

Jason Lieser

Erik Spoelstra says Wade (hamstring) is likely out tonight at BKN.

Ira Winderman

The Nets are in a fragile spot like the Heat. Deron Williams, "We're worried about this one. We're worried about getting back to .500."

Ira Winderman

Chalmers probably wants the tape from pregame comments of Deron Williams, who said, "Chalmers is playing exceptional basketball right now."

Ira Winderman

Deron Williams pregame, on facing the Heat, "It's different. We're not preparing for LeBron James anymore."

Joseph Goodman

Deron Williams on the #Heat: “It’s different when you don’t have to prepare for LeBron James.”

Ethan J. Skolnick

What got the Cavaliers going on right track? Nuggets coach Brian Shaw: "It could have been our defense."

Unlike ex-teammate LeBron James, Dwyane Wade not on the spot when it comes to sons playing football.At least not yet. bit.ly/11kOqDV

Barry Jackson

Responding to a report that Tannehill can't audible, Lazor said Tannehill actually has more options that many QBs he has coached.

Barry Jackson

Regarding NFL.com story of rocky relationship with players, Lazor said he has used "very few curse words" but is demanding.

Barry Jackson

Kevin Coyle said he hopes Cortland Finnegan can play Sunday but isn't sure. Finnegan has ankle injury.
