I can’t express enough how great Caleb Martin has been this season
His transition game is off the charts
The defensive recoveries are elite
His handles and creation is hitting new heights
And don’t get me started on the front foot attack lol – 6:58 PM
Chris Herring @Herring_NBA
Hell of a sequence/stretch from Caleb Martin – 6:57 PM

Caleb Martin having another very strong game. He has 17 points on 7-of-10 shooting from the field, six rebounds and four assists.

Once he hits that euro, he’s comfortable
His creation has been fantastic as well – 6:53 PM

Dewayne Dedmon helping the Heat survive the non-Bam minutes with 13 points and four rebounds. Heat leads by seven with 8:58 to play. – 6:53 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Dewayne Dedmon consistently is doing what is needed in his role. – 6:50 PM
Lauren L. Williams @WilliamsLaurenL
Nice drive into the paint from Trent Forrest to collapse the defense. He then kicked it out to find Frank Kaminsky for a 3. Hawks down 87-84. – 6:50 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Rollers have dominated in this game
The next wrinkle I expect to see from Miami in the 4th is working in cutters to capitalize on this one
This will be a Strus/Martin quarter in theory if executed correctly – 6:48 PM
Miami Heat @MiamiHEAT
Big third quarter. Now, close it out. pic.twitter.com/jAMNZooicq6:48 PM

Christos Tsaltas @Tsaltas46

Bam Adebayo up to 24 points on 10-of-16 shooting from the field. Like Friday, each of his made baskets have come from inside the paint. – 6:36 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
The Heat are just spamming the same action over and over and over
And the Hawks can’t stop it – 6:33 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Tyler Herro still working his way into scoring like he did pre-injury, but he’s got six assists and six rebounds so far. Already with two lobs to Bam in this quarter. – 6:31 PM
Atlanta Hawks PR @HawksPR
With his eighth free throw made today, Trae Young has reached 1,956, surpassing Eddie Johnson for 11th place in Hawks history. – 6:30 PM
Christos Tsaltas @Tsaltas46
That’s another one proof of Tyler Herro’s development as all-around threat. He reads the game very well and added his passing ability to his arsenal. This is by far a most dangerous version of Herro-game. #HEATCulture

With his seventh rebound today, John Collins has 2,583 in his career, and surpasses Marvin Williams for 24th place in Hawks history. – 6:29 PM

The dribble penetration created a lot of this offensively
Cant keep betting on the 3 ball
Lowry knocks that one down – 6:27 PM

The half-court story of this second half will be simple
If they get that added boost from Tyler Herro off the bounce, they will have a chance
If they don’t, they lose
Bam has been fantastic, but the attention will only grow
They need Tyler in this one – 6:05 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
With 14 points in today’s first half, Bam Adebayo has 52 points over his last six quarters. Besides Max Strus (14) Heat aren’t getting much from anyone else on offense right now. – 6:05 PM

Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
Normally, Miami’s variety of defenses throw Hawks for a loop but feels like they got Hawks out of some ruts:
* more attempts from 3 fewer from midrange
* some reliance on Collins for 1-on-1 offense
* passes to Okongwu (!) on backline of zone defense – 6:04 PM

Lauren L. Williams @WilliamsLaurenL
Capela is officially OUT tonight against the Heat. Second-straight game. pic.twitter.com/TzIMRfsF2l4:17 PM

Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
Clint Capela (dental pain) is OUT. – 4:15 PM
Lauren L. Williams @WilliamsLaurenL
No sign of Clint Capela during his usual warm up time. He usually goes after Trae Young and John Collins and they just wrapped up. – 4:03 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Max Strus going through his typical pregame shooting cycle, so would assume he is back tonight. Dedmon, also questionable, did so likewise. Less certain about Vincent and Robinson. – 4:02 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Spoelstra on Bam Adebayo, “I think he should always be in the consideration for Most Improved Player, just how much his game changes year after year after year.” – 3:46 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Erik Spoelstra on Jimmy Butler (knee) remaining behind, “He’s able to get some really good work in Miami. He is definitely getting better, and we’ll just see how the week goes.” – 3:43 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Erik Spoelstra said Jimmy Butler is feeling better as he continues to work his way back from injury. The hope remains that Butler will be able to make his return during this four-game trip. – 3:33 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Spoelstra leaves open possibility of Butler joining Heat on this trip. Says Butler is getting good work in in Miami. – 3:32 PM
Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
Clint Capela is a game-time decision, per Nate. – 3:25 PM
Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
Nate McMillan said that Hawks traded for Dejounte Murray to have another player to attack switching defenses like the one Miami showed them in playoffs. – 3:25 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Clint Capela (dental) remains a game-time decision for Hawks. – 3:18 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Hawks center Clint Capela will be a game-time decision against the Heat today. – 3:17 PM

Biggest Dolphins leads, last 8 seasons …
— 41, vs. Houston, 2015
— 28, vs. Tennessee, 2015
— 27, vs. Houston, today (with a lot to go)
(Houston trailed 41-0 at the half at Miami in 2015. Dolphins beat them 17-9 last season. @sr30593 pointed out my hasty error.) – 2:22 PM

Houston’s last two trips to Miami: Dolphins led 41-0 at the half of the first one in 2015, 27-0 so far today. – 2:18 PM
Adam Wexler @AdamJWexler
Dolphins defense had their hands on the ball on all 3 plays of that #Texans 3-play drive.
Near INT, sack/fumble, fumble return for TD.
Miami up 27-0. – 2:13 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
With Max Strus upgraded to probable, expect the Heat to move back to the lineup of Adebayo, Martin, Strus, Lowry and Herro. – 1:38 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Herro, Strus, and Martin all probable for this afternoon vs the Hawks
Slowly getting there – 1:36 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Max Strus, Caleb Martin and Tyler Herro have been upgraded to probable for tonight’s game vs. Hawks.
But now Nikola Jovic (plantar fasciitis) has been added to the injury report. Jovic is questionable. – 1:34 PM
Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
Max Strus, Tyler Herro, Caleb Martin all upgraded to probable for tonight in Atlanta. Nikola Jovic now questionable with right plantar fascitiis. – 1:34 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Tyler Herro, Max Strus, Caleb Martin all upgraded to probable today at 5 PM in Atlanta. Nikola Jovic is now on the injury report as questionable with a foot issue. – 1:34 PM
Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz
That’s 11 TDs and 0 INTa since Tua returned from concussion. Hilarious how Houston had no interest in Tua in Deshaun Watson trade permutations a year ago. A blessing how it turned out for Miami – 1:28 PM
David Aldridge @davidaldridgedc
Major Brian Robinson truckage of Atlanta’s Darren Hall en route to a 14-yard TD pass. – 1:19 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
Kind of a wild stat: Trae Young has finished 258 possessions in pick-and-roll. That’s more than all Mavericks (240), Nets (242) and Kings (253) ball-handlers combined. pic.twitter.com/FwpFJrlrc11:09 PM

Miami Heat @MiamiHEAT
Heading into tonight Miami has played in a league-leading 15 “clutch” games. What does that mean and what are the results of past teams who’ve led that category? @CoupNBA has those answers ⬇️ – 12:26 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Low body count has meant more Highsmith for Heat, with contribution embraced. sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h…12:20 PM

A reminder, because of Dolphins postgame coverage today’s Heat radio coverage (5 p.m. in Atlanta) will be on Power 96.5 FM. – 11:37 AM
