Jason Lieser

Heat have started 13 players, which was a league-high as of last week and I assume it still is.

Jason Lieser

Heat had 1 lineup for the first 8 games. Since then they have started the same 5 in consecutive games five times.

Next up for the Heat is Philly, which is on a season-high 1-game winning streak after beating the magic today. Sixers rise to 3-23.

Jay King

With new players and a new starting lineup, the Celtics lacked cohesiveness in a loss to the Heat. My quick recap: masslive.com/celtics/index.…

On a night when they rely on a Big Three of Deng (23p), Ennis (16) & Cole (15), Heat roll past Boston 100-84. Game was never close.

James Ennis leads Heat's reserves with 12 points in 21 minutes. Filling in nicely at back-up shooting guard. Heat 83, Celtics 73 5:21 3Q.

Tyler Zeller went nuts in the 3rd, dropping 13 of his 17, but the C's are still trailing the Heat 72-61. C's: 3/15 3FGs. #NBABallot

If words with MCW have anything to do with Noel's play, they should argue every game. The two are fine, now. Heat of moment

The #Celtics brought it within 5pts to open the 2nd half... but then #Heat went on a 11-2 run. Brad Stevens wants a timeout.

Heat saying Justin Hamilton has a "headache" and will not return to the game. Hope it's not a concussion-related symptom.

Technical on Sullinger. Meanwhile, the Heat's "Expandables," as Haslem calls them, are playing well.

Joseph Goodman

Jared Sullinger technical foul. Heat 63, Celtics 51 7:11 3Q.

Heat are one of the bottom 5 in the NBA in FT pct at 73%. They've missed 184 this season.

Celtics are giving up a hearty 60.7 percent shooting by the Heat. That's a LeBron era number, except there's no LeBron, Wade or Bosh tonite.
