Winderman’s view: Practicing prudence with Lowry, plus other Heat-Hawks thoughts. sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h…9:43 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Suns, Bucks, Heat all lost games when Devin Booker, Khris Middleton, and Kyle Lowry, respectively, were injured.
All three teams responded with wins in the next game. – 9:42 PM
Dave McMenamin @mcten
The Heat go up 3-1 on the Hawks with a dominant 110-86 win in Sunday’s Game 4. Miami shot just 43% as a team, but held Atlanta to 40% and had just six turnovers to the Hawks’ 15. Jimmy Butler 36p on 12-of-21 shooting 10r 4a 4s; Gabe Vincent 11p 4a starting in place of Kyle Lowry – 9:40 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Victor Oladipo allowed Heat to eliminate the Tyler Herro-Duncan Robinson tandem minutes
Took a Kyle Lowry injury and a rough Robinson second quarter stint to get there, but Spo got there – 9:22 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
End of third quarter: Heat 80, Hawks 61. Masterful defensive performance from the Heat with Kyle Lowry out. Hawks shooting just 35.7 percent from the field. – 9:07 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Offense remains work for the Heat. You can see the lack of fluidity without Lowry. – 8:46 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Despite missing Kyle Lowry, the Heat finished the first half with zero turnovers. – 8:24 PM
Dave McMenamin @mcten
The Heat are up 55-41 at the half, with a chance to go up 3-1 on the Hawks if this holds. They outscored Atlanta 30-15 in the 2nd Q, sparked by Jimmy Butler scoring 13 of his 19 and adding two steals. Miami has yet to turn the ball over — impressive considering Kyle Lowry is out – 8:23 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Said this on the pregame show, but no Lowry felt like it was trending to staggering Butler and Bam
Seeing now – 8:14 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
At least early, it appears the loss of Lowry has led the Heat to abandon their switching defense. – 7:32 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
As I said before the game, Miami would flow into more post splits without Lowry
And the first possession… – 7:19 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
If Jimmy Butler takes on more a playmaking role with Lowry out, this would be a good time for Aggressive Bam to show up. – 6:41 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
So Lowry out for the Heat. Capela back for the Hawks. Atlanta, coming off a win and at home, is in the best pregame position of the series. – 6:37 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
As expected, Gabe Vincent starting in place of the injured Kyle Lowry. – 6:31 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Gabe Vincent starts in place of sidelined Kyle Lowry, opening alongside Bam Adebayo, P.J. Tucker, Jimmy Butler and Max Strus. – 6:30 PM

McMillan on Heat potentially playing without Lowry: “There are few ways they can go with him out of the lineup. … They’ve played without him before.” Said Butler, Herro and Vincent can handle point guard duties if Lowry can’t play. – 5:22 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
This is an interesting time pregame. If Kyle Lowry were to try to test out his hamstring, this likely would be the beginning of that timeframe. pic.twitter.com/1tVILoiXKW4:56 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
The Heat are going to need this tonight from Bam
Seal, bump, up
This is a game where the team should be telling him to aim for 15-17 shot attempts if no Lowry pic.twitter.com/lQMo0XFjiw11:21 AM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Think one of the primary offensive adjustments if no Lowry is to increase guard screening heavily for Jimmy
Getting the smaller guards on him is crucial, and if they continue to hedge and recover, it’s an advantage still on the roll
A lot relies on Gabe/Max hitting early tho – 11:07 AM

More on this storyline

Dave McMenamin: Clint Capela will return from his hyperextended knee injury and start Game 4 tonight, the Hawks announce. Also, Gabe Vincent will start in Kyle Lowry’s place -via Twitter @mcten / April 24, 2022
Ira Winderman: Erik Spoelstra would not say if Gabe Vincent will start in place of Lowry, “We’ll find out, but he’s going to play a lot.” And, no, I did not ask about Oladipo (sorry, but you look Spoelstra directly into those eyes in a dark pregame interview room). -via Twitter @IraHeatBeat / April 24, 2022
