James Harden after the #Nets get beat 31-4 in 2nd-chance points by the #Heat: “Its got to be a team effort. We have to gang rebound; we have to make sure we’re conscious of gang rebounding & putting bodies on guys. At the end of the day we have to fight.” nypost.com/2021/10/27/net…1:05 AM

James Harden is slowly making his way back from his hamstring injury. He’s scored 15 or fewer points in 3 straight for 1st time since 2011-12. “Just getting more confident…As much as I want to get back to [scoring] 30’s and 40 points, I can’t [right now]” espn.com/nba/story/_/id…12:48 AM

James Harden was 0 of 7 tonight when defended by Bam Adebayo, Jimmy Butler, or PJ Tucker – 11:58 PM

Triple for Hield. Kings need him to heat up. – 11:34 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Five Degrees of Heat from Wednesday night’s 106-93 victory in Brooklyn: sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h…
1. Closing time as winning time.
2. It was a rebound-a-thon.
3. With P.J. Tucker setting the tone.
4. And Dewayne Dedmon adding back-up muscle.
5. Even as the 3s still aren’t falling. – 11:25 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
How does Bam Adebayo explain the Heat’s improved rebounding?
“I think it’s personnel. We’re getting stops, and that’s the biggest difference in our team. … Our rebounds are going to go up when we’re getting stops.” – 11:22 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Bam Adebayo:
“We’ve gotta team with a lot of guys that have won (a championship)…My previous years we haven’t had more than two guys.”
“On this team we have Kyle who won 1, PJ that just won 1, Kieff, then you got UD…Me, Jimmy, Duncan, Tyler have all been to the finals.” – 11:21 PM

Brian Geltzeiler @hoopscritic
Two Miami bigs, Adebayo and Dedmon, combined for 41 pts and 18 boards tonight. Granted, Claxton would have helped a little but the Nets have an interior defense problem that looks a lot worse when your offense is incredibly average – 11:16 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Jimmy Butler on the overall communication:
“We ain’t got nobody that’s sensitive. You say what you gotta say then you move on because everybody’s got that common goal when it comes to winning.”
“Everybody can talk to everybody, and no matter how it comes off, it’s just to win.” – 11:15 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander on the Bazley dunk “I know Baze, he didn’t mean no disrespect by it. It happened, heat of the moment. I know Bazley character he didn’t mean no disrespect. If it’s right or wrong [unwritten rule], I don’t know.” – 11:14 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
PJ Tucker on the Heat’s switching defense: “We’re OK right now. It’s not great. It’s not perfect… it’s the effort and energy… and we do that.” – 10:56 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
PJ Tucker on this Heat team:
“I can be on KD then Bam will switch and I’m like cool, then Jimmy will switch and I’m like cool, then Kyle will switch and I’m like cool.”
“We can yell at each other then go out there and play and be good.”
@5ReasonsSports10:55 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Jimmy Butler on the team’s rebounding:
“Tyler be stealing everybody’s rebounds and everybody be talking about it.”
“Oh I led us in rebounds tonight. Ok Jimbo.”
@5ReasonsSports10:52 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Jimmy Butler: “Tyler be stealing everybody’s rebounds and we’re talking about it… still love either way.” – 10:52 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
PJ Tucker is the Kyle Lowry of Miami’s defense
Much like Lowry on the offensive end, guys like Butler and Adebayo are the better scoring options which means Lowry is the set-up guy
Tucker is the set-up man for Bam and Jimmy on defense
It’s worked perfectly through the first 4 – 10:46 PM
Adam Zagoria @AdamZagoria
“Yeah, we do miss Kyrie. We do. He’s a part of our team but for the most part we’ve been generating great shots…It’s just a matter of us knocking them down. It will come.
KD with a laugh – 10:46 PM
Anthony Puccio @APOOCH
Heat outclassed the Nets tonight. Outrebounded them by 20 — 17 offensive. KD and Bruce Brown were the only Nets to shoot above 50%.
& take it as you will through 5 games but…
The 3 losses have come by double digits. Averaging 21.2 points in 4th quarters in all 5 games. – 10:45 PM

“That’s how teams feel like they could beat us — If you could get second chance points, that’s the key.” – 10:24 PM
Justin Kubatko @jkubatko
Russell Westbrook has recorded his sixth career triple-double in which he’s also committed at least 10 turnovers.
Since the NBA started tracking individual turnovers in 1977-78, the only other player with more than one such game is James Harden (3). – 10:23 PM

⁃Joe Harris on setting the franchise record in three-pointers made. – 10:18 PM
Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
James Harden said he spent entire offseason rehabbing his hamstring and wasn’t able to play pickup like he normally would. He says as much as he wants to score 30 and 40 points right now, he has to build his way back to that as he gets more games under his belt. Harden had 14-7-7 – 10:17 PM

“It’s more about the people around you that make the individual player.”
⁃Joe Harris on setting the franchise record in three-pointers made. – 10:16 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
For those saying Bam Adebayo needs to be more aggressive: He scored 10 of his 24 points in the fourth tonight on 4 for 7 shooting to put the Nets away. He’s currently averaging a career-high 19.3 points per game. – 10:16 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
James Harden said given his durability before his hamstring injury this is uncharted waters for him where he has to play himself back into his old self and build up his confidence. – 10:14 PM
Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
James Harden says,
“I have been blessed to not have any surgeries— I love to hoop. If it wasn’t for the money I would still be hooping.” – 10:13 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Spo on Tyler Herro coming off the bench: “That’s the beauty of the offense. He’s not necessarily the [backup] point guard, but he’s a big-time playmaker for us… He’s definitely a scoring threat, but he’s really improved his playmaking.” – 10:13 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Spoelstra on the Heat rotation: “We’re set for now, but things will constantly evolve and evolve as we see necessary.” – 10:12 PM
Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
James Harden believes that he needs to go through this struggle offensively so that he could go back to “hooping and killing” again. – 10:11 PM

“It’s not going to be easy. It’s not going to be a smooth sail.”
⁃James Harden on the Nets’ early struggles. – 10:10 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
James Harden said his three turnovers with LaMarcus Aldridge were part of them figuring each other out. Says they don’t get a lot of practice reps in season so they have to go through this in games. – 10:08 PM

James Harden says,
“Tough, it’s tough to lose games like this, but it’s a part of the process — I know we’re all frustrated.” – 10:08 PM

Defense is so good, as expected, that Heat (3-1) again overcame subpar 3 point night (8 for 29). Out rebounded Nets by 20, a key area of improvement with this team. Butler 17, 14 tonight .. Bam 24…Tucker, Dedmon big tonight – 10:03 PM
Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Heat exposed Nets inside, grabbing 17 offensive rebounds tonight. Steve Nash said it’s been an “Achilles heel” for the Nets. Heat outscored Nets, 31-4, in second-chance points. – 10:03 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Not the best shooting night for him, but Jimmy Butler finished with 17 points, 14 rebounds seven assists and four steals. The man did a little bit of it all. – 10:03 PM

Big win for Miami in Brooklyn. Played the game on their physical terms, made life uncomfortable for the Nets scorers. Harden has to get going – 9:56 PM
Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz
So the Heat, in seven nights, has beaten the two Eastern teams widely picked to finish ahead of them. 106-93 over Brooklyn. Yes, Bucks/Nets were without Holiday, Lopez, Irving. But Heat without Oladipo and a buyout guy to be named later (Wall?). #toughnessandgrit9:55 PM

FINAL: Heat moves to 3-1 with 106-93 win over the Nets in Brooklyn. – 9:55 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Final: Nets fall to the Heat 106-93. Kevin Durant with 25 points in the loss. Joe Harris with 15 and the franchise 3-point record, but Brooklyn’s offense didn’t do much more after that. Harden still isn’t himself and Miami outscored in the paint, in transition, etc. – 9:55 PM

Five Takeaways from Heat’s Big Win Over Brooklyn
@5ReasonsSportsfivereasonssports.com/news/five-take…9:55 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Raptors defeat Indiana, 118-100. It’s their first (reg season) win in Toronto since beating the Pacers on Feb 23, 2020… 612 days ago. They had 6 double figure scorers that night – 5 are no longer on the team (Thomas/Lowry/Ibaka/David/RHJ) & the 6th didn’t play tonight (Siakam). – 9:55 PM

FINAL: Nets 93, Heat 106
Kevin Durant (25 PTS, 11 REBS), Joe Harris (15 PTS, 5 3PM), James Harden (14 PTS, 7 ASTS, 7 REBS) & the Nets fall to 2-3 on the season. Second chance points, dominance in the interior and bench production was a recipe for success all night for the Heat. – 9:55 PM

Heaters win a home game in Brooklyn. – 9:54 PM

Finally seeing Tatum running crunch time high pick-and-roll with Horford, which was Boston’s go-to closing offense with IT and Kyrie. Wizards blitz Tatum up high and he can easily slip that pocket pass to Horford on the short roll now. – 9:53 PM

Joe Harris said beforehand it’ll mean more to break the #Nets 3-point record in front of the fans who’ve watched him grow. “And now to get to this point where I’m shooting for a chance to be an all-time leader in a franchise, it’s a special moment.” #NBA8:56 PM

Last season, #Nets runs were powered by offense. Without Kyrie, this team is going to have to dig in and grind. They held the #Heat to 4-of-15 shooting – 0-of-4 from deep – with three turnovers over the final seven minutes of the half. – 8:43 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Heat let a 12-point lead slip away, trail bt two at halftime. Five turnovers to four assists in the 2Q isn’t helping. Neither is being 2/16 from 3-pt range in the first half. Robinson, Strus, Herro and Lowry combined 0 for 12 on 3FGA. Tucker is the only Heat player to make a 3.. – 8:41 PM

Halftime: Nets 51, Heat 49. Miami led by as many 12 points, but Brooklyn ended the first half on a 22-8 run. Heat shooting 37.9 percent from the field and 2 of 16 on threes. – 8:38 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Halftime: Nets lead the Heat 51-49. Durant with 13, Harden with 11. Nets down by 10 on the boards. Admirable second quarter, but Brooklyn needs more support scoring wise against a team like this. The stars can’t do it all. – 8:38 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Nets 51, Heat 49 at half. Heat had led by 12 in second period, then Harden got going in his 11-point period. Butler with 12 points for Heat, Adebayo 10. – 8:37 PM
Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
Half: Nets 51, Heat 49
Kevin Durant (13 PTS, 8 REBS), James Harden (11 PTS) and the Nets have creeped back into the game. Miami is absolutely feasting in the paint through. They aren’t heating up at all from the perimeter. Miami has also capitalized off of second chance points. – 8:37 PM

James Harden went on a personal 11-2 run to bring the Nets back from down 12. We’ve got a 47-42 game in Brooklyn. The Heat are playing physical and the refs are letting everything go, though the 2nd quarter has been more even in fouls called (9-8 MIA). – 8:27 PM

Kevin Durant (7 PTS, 6 REBS) Joe Harris (6 PTS, 2 3PM) and the Nets are having trouble rebounding the ball. The Heat finished the period on a 14-4 run and they’re outrebounding Brooklyn 18-11. Still, they’re being held to 22% shooting from three. – 8:09 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
End of the first quarter: Heat lead the Nets 29-22. Kevin Durant played every minute of the quarter and has seven points on 2-for-7 shooting. Joe Harris is a 3 away from the record. @MBayler’s analysis: “Someone not named KD has to protect the paint and rebound.” – 8:08 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
To be honest, the Nets are lucky to only be down 29-22 after the first quarter. The Heat shot just 2-of-9 from downtown on several makeable shots. Miami has 18 rebounds in the first quarter to Brooklyn’s 11. Nets need to step it up. – 8:08 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
End of first quarter: Heat 29, Nets 22. Jimmy Butler with 8 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists. Tyler Herro with 7 points. Nets shooting 36.4 percent from the field. – 8:08 PM

Two reasons why Wizards-Celtics tonight is interesting to me: 1) we saw what happened in Brooklyn, how close are the Wizards to the 2nd tier in the East? 2) J Tatum helped expose their lack of size at the 3 last year, so they added wing defense. How much did they help that cause? – 2:32 PM
