Erik Spoelstra on the nonsense (my word) of the Celtics having won 10 of the 12 quarters in this series the Heat lead 2-1, “At the end of the game, the clock turns to zero, did we win or did we lose? That’s what our focus is on.” – 1:38 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Erik Spoelstra said that there are no updates on either Jimmy Butler or Tyler Herro. Butler left with right knee inflammation at halftime.
Herro left the game in the fourth quarter because of a right leg injury. The Heat believe he could have returned to the game, if necessary. – 12:52 PM
Joe Vardon @joevardon
Erik Spoelstra said the Heat intended to be more conservative with Kyle Lowry’s minutes, especially in the first half. He scored 11 points with four assists in 29 minutes, after missing the last four with a hamstring strain. – 12:33 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Erik Spoelstra says Kyle Lowry looks healthy, and infused the Heat with a dose of confidence just by his return to the court. – 12:32 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Erik Spoelstra said he needed to find ways to get Bam Adebayo more involved, but that “90 percent” of his play in Game 3 was just Adebayo being assertive at both ends. Said he stabilized the Heat at both ends of the court. – 12:31 PM
Joe Vardon @joevardon
Erik Spoelstra said there is no injury update on Jimmy or Herro, leaving Heat fans to revel in last night’s bravado and wonder about Game 4…12:31 PM
Malika Andrews @malika_andrews
Erik Spoelstra says that Tyler Herro is dealing with a leg issue, which contributed to the decision to him not closing the game. – 12:29 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Erik Spoelstra says he has no injury updates yet today, but says Tyler Herro does have some sort of injury to his leg. – 12:28 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Erik Spoelstra when asked for injury updates after the game: “Let me get back to our cave and assess.”
If any Heat team really spent their off days in a cave, it might be this one. – 1:51 AM
Jeff Zillgitt @JeffZillgitt
“I don’t have any updates on anybody,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said.
No MRI for Jimmy Butler, Spoelstra said. Person with knowledge of situation tells @usatodaynba that Butler isn’t expected to miss any time. – 11:38 PM
Jeff Zillgitt @JeffZillgitt
Erik Spoelstra at shootaround on Bam Adebayo: “We want him more involved, and I have to do a better job of that, of making sure that he’s involved, engaged, getting us to our triggers. … He’s a very important part of our offense and how we function.”
Ten early points for Bam. – 8:54 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Erik Spoelstra said he hasn’t gotten an update on any of the Heat’s questionable players yet.
This includes Kyle Lowry, Max Strus, P.J. Tucker and Gabe Vincent. – 7:04 PM
Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA
Erik Spoelstra says with great sincerity that he hasn’t managed to talk to the trainers about all of his questionable players.
“I think I have until 8 o’clock to turn in my lineup card. I’m gonna stay true to that.” – 7:02 PM

“Stay level-headed,” Grant Williams said when asked how the Celtics have managed to survive the peaks and valleys of the playoffs so far. “At the end of the day, no matter what happens, whether it’s a big win or big loss, you have to play it the right way. We can’t let it carry over. It’s 2-1 right now and we play in front of our Garden fans and can make it 2-2. “It’s one of those things where we still control our destiny. We have to come out there and not only be a little more physically dominant and be more conscious of what we are trying to accomplish. Just like a regular season, there’s going to be peaks and valleys, you are going to have success and times you are not playing well, but the best teams stick together through thick and thin and they do their best job understanding the same thing can’t beat you twice.” -via ESPN / May 22, 2022
