HoopsHype Miami Heat twitter
Newest one not up yet. Feels odd to be back with such different outlook. http://t.co/xYByRhfqCT
Spurs are listing Patty Mills, Tiago Splitter and Kawhi Leonard as out for tonight. Spoelstra had said no Wade or Bosh.
So TCU is the best team in Texas.
Big Blue Madness w/ my bro @evargas30 last night http://t.co/uANRevPIeA
K-State defeating Oklahoma after a failed PAT and a shanked field goal by the Sooners is a net loss for the Big 12.
How do you miss a 19-yard field goal?
Back in San Antonio, doesn't feel like 4 months. Catching Heat/Spurs and Bulls/Cavs on this trip.
Wow this morning right here man. Hate bein blind sided wit BS and no this ain't bout basketball.
For those who prefer correct spelling not typed on a phone: Spoelstra says Wade, Bosh likely to be given night off Saturday in San Antonio.
Both Wade and Bosh prepared to spectate Saturday in San Antonio. Figure on plenty of Granger.
Spoelsta says neither Wade nor Bosh expected to play Saturday.
Heat really wanted this one. Yes it's preseason but these players are competitors.
Yes, this is the same Shawne Williams who played in the Hawks game.
Heat have first victory in grasp but Warriors sure know how to shoot.
Bosh doing work. Teammates playing well off him.
Looks like Napier has adjusted to the NBA basketball.
Chalmers and Napier with back-to-back triples for the Heat, which is working hard for its first victory of the preseason.
And then Napier does his late-game thing.
Heat 106, Warriors 102 with 4:45 left.
And Chalmers puts the Heat ahead and Jayhawk faithful rejoice.
Where would with the Heat be tonight without Shawne Williams (yes, actually just typed that)?
Shawne Williams with 16 points for the Heat. Warriors 102, Heat 99
And now Klay Thompson about to check back in for Warriors. No sign of Wade.
Heat usually only play overtime when leaving for or returning from Brazil, but we'll see.
Working in the Heat's favor is the Warriors have Leandro Barbosa in the game.
Napier, Chalmers, Ennis, Shawne Williams, Bosh in for the Heat with 7-min mark coming.
Wait, Steph Curry and David Lee now returning. This is for real (or as real as it can get in preseason).
Bosh back. Heat clearly looking for a win, and might just get it as Bogut checks out for Warriors. No Golden State starters currently in.
Surprise: Warriors offense not as fearsome without their starters. Meanwhile, Napier quietly putting together a nice second half all around.
Luol Deng now 8 of 11 for 19 points, keeping the Heat close.
Eighteen of the Warriors' 39 third-period points came from Klay Thompson, who often was defended by Dwyane Wade.
Two needless fouls curtail any hope the Heat had of keeping the deficit to single digits entering the 4th quarter.
Warriors 95, Heat 83 after 3Q.
Defense again takes a holiday for the Heat in the third period, with Golden State up 95-83 going into the fourth. Yes, 95 points through 3.
Heat keep trying to get close but Warriors keep answering back.
Nice bounce-back games from Luol Deng and Shawne Williams tonight.
Royals now at midcourt with American League championship trophy. This would have been Game 6, but no need with sweep.
And now -- and I'm looking right at it -- Mario Chalmers admonishing Dwyane Wade about defensive coverage.
Shawne Williams with his fourth three-pointer. Warriors 83, Heat 72
Heat offense has been fine. Shawne Williams loading up on threes. The defense remains the issue.
In case anyone is wondering, the Royals are the home team tonight.
David Lee now 10 for 10. He's doing it as seemingly effortlessly as Kansas City's Royals.
Chalmers again in at the two, with Wade again moving to the three.
Heat simply can't stop Warriors from scoring. They keep systemically breaking it down with their passing and ball movement.
Warriors with 74 points with 7:27 left in third period. Yes, they're an awesome offensive force. But, still . . .
So it has come down to . . . Shawne Williams 3-pointers.
BREAKING: Steph Curry airball.
Wade lacks lift, stuffed cleanly by Klay Thompson.
Heat have a face tough uphill battle again. They'll need to force turnovers in the second half instead of committing them.
And we're going to replay in the third quarter of the preseason . . . thank you new rules!
Heat start third quarter with same lineup that opened.
Brandon Rush, lower back spasms, out for second half for Warriors.
Getting feeling Granger being saved as somewhat of a leading man Saturday, when Heat complete back-to-back in San Antonio. Has not played.
Warriors 56, Heat 47 at halftime.
Warriors 56, Heat 47 at half. Heat defensive efficiency lasted one period. Wade one assist, no rebounds. Oh. and Warriors played last night
Wade is being abused defensively. Last three Warriors baskets are on him.
Heat transition defense? What transition defense?
Wade simply has not been in attack mode this preseason. Looking to facilitate, shoot jumpers, pull-ups.
An Aaron Craft heat check? Really?
The Heat passed on Draymond Green to acquire a future draft pick that they used to dump Joel Anthony's contract.
James Ennis continues to alternate nice plays with mistakes. Not sure if Spoelstra will have the patience for that when the games count.
Deng looks smooth tonight & Bosh has all preseason. Waiting for a Wade game.
Now Shannon Brown in for Chalmers, who only has played shooting guard to this stage.
Chalmers back to start the second period, at shooting guard.
Heat 27, Warriors 23 after 1Q.
Good offense, active defense. One of Heat's better preseason periods. Up 27-23 at end of one.
In addition to playing Chalmers at the two, Deng has been playing at the four.
Crowd actually filled in nicely for an exhibition, especially for a neutral-site game.
Shooting guard Chalmers now with two fouls in his seven minutes.
Chalmers as Vinnie Johnson, who would have thunk it?
Heat 23, Warriors 16 after a three-pointer by Luol Deng.
Deng feeling it. Maybe he's the Heat's 3-point answer?
Napier in early for the second straight game.
Napier now enters for Cole, which means Chalmers stays as shooting guard. Clearly trying to give Chalmers extended runs at two.
Just weird seeing Luke Walton as a Warriors assistant coach.
Heat will lose this battle if they're going to engage in a shootout vs Warriors. Defense needs to arrive.
