Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Bam Adebayo on PJ Tucker, “From the jump, you could tell he was about business. We had a chip because of what happened to us last year.”

Jimmy Butler on Kyle Lowry, “It’s definitely a blessing to just share the floor with him. But more than anything, I hope that mother f***** knows my daughter’s birthday is tomorrow.”

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Coach Spo on Tyler Herro:
“Sometimes the narrative can spin out of control on last year. He did have injuries, coverages were different…For him to go through that, I think was really important.”
“His confidence is just continuing to grow.” – 10:55 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Erik Spoelstra on the rule changes regarding fouls not impacting Jimmy Butler, “I was never concerned about that. Jimmy has never been a flopper…He has a great knack for going through contact. It’s not like those aren’t earned. They’re like mini car wrecks.” – 10:53 PM

Being reviewed now. – 9:58 PM

Khris Middleton just got a technical for bounce passing the ball at the stanchion.
The league said that was going to be a technical this year, point of emphasis for officials. And they called it. – 9:40 PM

Khris Middleton gets a technical foul after Pat Connaughton is whistled for his second foul. #Bucks trail by 32… – 9:40 PM

Kyle Lowry’s first basket with the Heat comes in the 3rd quarter and… puts his team up 32. Classic Kyle. – 9:39 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Incredible reactions after that Giannis missed layup. Giannis looked at the ref expecting a foul to be called on Lowry. Lowry looked at the ref expecting to get the charge. No whistle blown. – 9:37 PM

With his first 3-pointer, Lowry moved past Kobe Bryant and into 18th place on the NBA’s all-time list. – 9:35 PM

They lead 72-43 at halftime here in Miami. – 9:19 PM

I picked the Heat to make the Finals, and the Mavs to be way worse because of Jason Kidd. Feelin good on night one 😉. And before you fire off your goofy response, understand that night one means everything. – 9:19 PM

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Man, the Bucks cannot buy a 3 off of a Giannis Antetokounmpo pass tonight. He keeps getting guys open and they’re missing 3s. – 8:52 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
I forgot how much I missed the live box score in the regular season. Grayson Allen now only has one foul. Khris Middleton was given one. Giannis Antetokounmpo has two again. Whatever. – 8:51 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Kyle Lowry just limped off the court and went straight to the locker room. – 8:50 PM

Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
#Bucks trail 13-3 with 7:14 to go in the the first quarter. Giannis Antetokounmpo has yet to attempt a shot. – 8:24 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
I don’t remember many defenses with two new starters looking as good on opening night as the Heat have thus far. Good lord. – 8:23 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Heat opens the game on a 13-3 run. Bucks timeout. – 8:23 PM

A very aggressive Bam Adebayo with seven of the Heat’s first 11 points. – 8:21 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Bam Adebayo shows his #midrange – knocking one down over Giannis Antetokounmpo to give the #Heat a 11-3 lead. It followed a missed, wide open three from Khris Middleton.
#Bucks are 0-for-5 from distance thus far. – 8:21 PM
Frank Madden @fmaddenNBA
Jimmy Butler has 4 points, which means he won’t be outscored by Bryn Forbes again tonight. – 8:20 PM

Don’t know if you guys saw that like I’ve been saying all week:
Giannis turns his back
Jimmy runs across the floor to surprise him for a potential steal – 8:18 PM

Grayson Allen just shot a 25-footer. He’s got a 6-footer left for par. – 8:18 PM

Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Bam opened the game on Giannis and P.J. Tucker opened the game with a hard foul on Giannis. – 8:14 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
P.J. Tucker just thwamped Giannis. Hard foul. Then raised his hand to let the official know it was on him. No kidding. – 8:14 PM
Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
That’s a HARD foul from P.J. Tucker helping out on Giannis Antetokounmpo from the backside. – 8:14 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
First foul of the game: P.J. Tucker sends Giannis Antetokounmpo to the floor. – 8:14 PM

Some active NBA players voted for the #NBA75 list including Steph Curry, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Chris Paul.
Legends such as Michael Jordan, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Shaq, Dirk Nowitzki, Isiah Thomas, Charles Barkley, Tim Duncan, John Stockton, etc. also had a vote. pic.twitter.com/fxToedV6Ow7:50 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Both Caleb Martin and Marcus Garrett are active for the Heat tonight. This will therefore count as one of the 50 games they can be active on their two-way contracts, regardless of if they see action. – 7:49 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Very small lineup for Milwaukee tonight
All eyes on Bam Adebayo’s attack mode
And expect many Jimmy Butler free throws when he gets that switch – 7:48 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Bucks going with Giannis at center, alongside Khris Middleton, Pat Connaughton, Grayson Allen and George Hill.
Heat starters as expected: Lowry, Butler, Robinson, Tucker and Adebayo. – 7:43 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Bucks opening with:
Giannis Antetokounmpo
Khris Middleton
Pat Connaughton
Grayson Allen
George Hill
(Lopez and Holiday are out).
Likely not much of a chance for Heat to go big in this one. – 7:41 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Pat Connaughton and George Hill get the call for Brook Lopez and Jrue Holiday tonight for the #Bucks. – 7:41 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
As expected, Heat using a starting lineup of Kyle Lowry, Duncan Robinson, Jimmy Butler, P.J. Tucker and Bam Adebayo to open the season. – 7:40 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Heat with the opening-night starters as expected:
Bam Adebayo
PJ Tucker
Duncan Robinson
Jimmy Butler
Kyle Lowry – 7:33 PM

Not sure I can believe anything Kyle Lowry told @Jonathan Abrams after he said this.

Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Former Heat players Shaquille O’Neal, Ray Allen, Dwyane Wade and Gary Payton have all been named to the NBA’s 75th Anniversary Team.
Bob McAdoo, who is currently a Heat scout, also made the cut. – 6:54 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Heat tipoff against the Bucks in about an hour. Here’s how last season’s sweep impacted Miami’s offseason, and the plan to get back to the top of the East. wesgoldberg.substack.com/p/the-heats-pl…6:52 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Good for Bob McAdoo on NBA 75th Anniversary team. And deserved after being snubbed on 50th Anniversary team. He currently is working as a Heat scout. – 6:47 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Gary Payton, another former Heat player, makes it to NBA 75th Anniversary team. – 6:37 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski

Kyrie Irving remains the only member of the Nets injury report. Rookie Day’Ron Sharpe is off it ahead of tomorrow’s game in Philly. He was a late scratch in Milwaukee with a toe sprain. – 5:33 PM

It still feels like Giannis has something to prove. Could he do something few players have ever accomplished and win his third MVP in four years? @Kevin O’Connor and @Chris Vernon think it’s possible. pic.twitter.com/ImZTZAFMXj5:02 PM

Not going to have high expectations for Bucks tonight in Miami given a) they’ll be without Jrue/Brook/Portis/Semi/Hood and b) Giannis/Khris unlikely to play huge minutes. But interesting opportunity to see how deeper bench guys fare with small lineups and lots of switching. – 3:07 PM

Evan Dunlap @BQRMagic
Jamahl Mosley is catching some heat today for only playing Wendell Carter Jr. 19 minutes last night. Yes, that’s too low, but let’s add some context: he didn’t play at all in the fourth quarter (Magic were down 23). So he played 19 of 36 minutes before extreme garbage time – 2:10 PM
