Ira Winderman: For those who insist on living on Twitter rumors (and blowing up my phone). NO Heat players did not return with the team due to COVID. Two STAFFERS did not return: a broadcaster and a therapist. Team otherwise would have HAD to list on injury report if that was case with players.

The Mavs are attempting to become the first team in NBA history to overcome a 3-0 deficit to win a playoff series, a feat 146 others have failed to accomplish. Dallas took a step in that direction with a 119-109 win in Tuesday’s Game 4 at the American Airlines Center. “I mean, I still believe we can win, you know,” Doncic said. “Swept or not swept, in the end, if you lose, you lose. Don’t matter how many we win. We have to go game by game. We’re going to believe until the end.”
After the game Finney-Smith said that his team felt like it had more games to play in this series and we ready to do whatever it takes to win Game 4. “Everybody in that locker room feel like we have more basketball to play,” the 29-year-old power forward said. “We just wanted to get the win by any means necessary. I feel like we came out desperate in that first half.”
Chuck: “Have you surpassed your dad as the best player?” JB: “My dad wasn’t even a player compared to me..” Jalen Brunson fires shots to former NBA player and coach Rick Brunson 🤣
Golden State’s Splash Brothers were trying not to get wet at the start of the second half Tuesday night as water leaked through the roof of the American Airlines Center, delaying Game 4 of the Western Conference finals between the Warriors and Mavericks by 16 minutes. The teams had to sit through a rare rain delay in basketball out of halftime while arena workers tried to plug a leak, coming from the rain outside, in the ceiling high above.
