Five Degrees of Heat from Tuesday night’s 118-107 opening statement vs. Celtics: sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h…
1. Control seized in the third quarter.
2. Butler sizzles again.
3. Vincent provides boost with Lowry out.
4. Herro keeps it afloat early.
5. No Horford or Smart for Celtics. – 8:09 AM

This is where Miami’s ability to manufacture starting-caliber role players out of thin air becomes so important.
The Heat were missing Kyle Lowry. Gabe Vincent was great in his place. The Celtics were missing Smart and Horford. Nesmith and Theis weren’t good enough. – 11:25 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
So right now the Heat without their 37-year-old starting power forward (Tucker) and 36-year-old starting point guard (Lowry). Not exactly a moment for the ages. – 9:30 PM
Sean Grande @SeanGrandePBP
Celtics at Heat – FTX Arena – May 17, 2022 – ECF Game 1 Starters
Boston – White, Brown, Tatum, G. Williams, R. Williams
Miami – Gabe Vincent, Max Strus, Jimmy Butler, PJ Tucker, Bam Adebayo
OUT: Boston: Smart, Horford, Hauser Miami: Lowry pic.twitter.com/JCA5nOjLld8:29 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
It’s Gabe Vincent again stepping in for sidelined Kyle Lowry in Heat starting lineup, flanked by Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo, P.J. Tucker and Max Strus. – 8:01 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
As Heat opens the East finals without Kyle Lowry, Celtics announce Marcus Smart and Al Horford will also miss Game 1 miamiherald.com/sports/nba/mia…7:35 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
From earlier — Erik Spoelstra and the Heat again turn to their ‘shapeshifter’ in the absence of Kyle Lowry. sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h…6:59 PM
Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz
Everyone intends to play for Heat tonight except Lowry, per Heat – 6:44 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Game 1 will be what it will be with Al Horford, Marcus Smart and Kyle Lowry all out.
But the key becomes how long those guys are all out. Any one of them getting back soon would be huge.
Worry for Boston is that COVID can still spread very rapidly. That’s worrisome for the C’s. – 6:40 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
This seems like a game-changer.
As Heat opens the East finals without Kyle Lowry, Celtics announce Marcus Smart and Al Horford will also miss Game 1. The latest: miamiherald.com/sports/nba/mia…6:23 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Celtics without Marcus Smart, Al Horford for East finals Game 1 vs. Heat, joining Heat’s Lowry as out. sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h…6:17 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Kyle Lowry getting some jumpers up here pregame. He’s still not moving around much laterally — but the hope is that he returns at some point in this series. The Heat have learned to play without him, but his teammates continue to say how important his leadership is on the floor. – 6:09 PM
