"Welcome to the NBA," Spoelstra said. "Once you get to this month, it's rumors and stories out there are wild and 99 percent of them don't come true. You control what you can control. That's part of building mental toughness. We talk about it all the time. Does it affect your paycheck? Does it affect you doing your job? No." South Florida Sun-Sentinel

“Our guys care,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “If you saw behind the scenes how they approach the work, and I have continually commended our group for that, coming in the next day even with the frustration, the pain and anger guys are feeling. Our guys come in with the right attitude to try to correct it, and it has been elusive for us for whatever reason.” The Rockets (23-10) scored 61 points in the first half, and then things got ugly. A driving dunk by newcomer Josh Smith gave Houston an 88-60 lead with 1:36 left in the third quarter, and teammate Dwight Howard nearly knocked Smith over in celebration. The Rockets outscored the Heat 33-11 in the third period. Miami Herald

The Heat waived Shannon Brown, who started two games, to make room on the roster. Whiteside, who spent one season collegiately at Marshall, also played in Lebanon and China last year. "We feel the upside of a 7-footer, shot-blocker, rebounder, young player was something that was too big to pass up right now," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "We view him as a developmental player even though he's played professionally for three years, we still see him as a young prospect." South Florida Sun-Sentinel
