Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat Five Degrees of Heat from Saturday night’s 118-92 victory over the Bulls: sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h…
1. COVID now an increasing Heat concern.
2. More rotation adjustments with Martin out.
3. Lowry gets to the point.
4. Robinson finds mark, makes mark.
5. Threes fall again. – 8:08 AM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat Winderman’s view: Kyle Lowry shows what leadership looks like, plus other Heat-Bulls thoughts sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h…8:08 AM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin Andre Drummond and the bench unit gave the team a huge lift. They received high praise after the win. #Sixers sixerswire.usatoday.com/2021/12/12/six… via @SixersWire #NBA1:15 AM

Andre Drummond @AndreDrummond “Are you not ENTERTAINED….. isn’t this why you are here”
Great Team Win @Philadelphia 76ers 🦍 – 11:49 PM

1. COVID now an increasing concern.
2. More rotation adjustments with Martin out.

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 Kyle Lowry on adjusting without Jimmy and Bam:
“It’s been tough. Those are our stars…We’ve got guys that are just continually stepping up.” – 11:22 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 Kyle Lowry on his assists tonight:
“I give the credit to those guys for making the shots…I don’t get assists if those guys don’t make shots.” – 11:20 PM

Tom Moore @TomMoorePhilly #Sixers center Andre Drummond: ‘That’s what (Matisse Thybulle) does – he played a great game tonight.’ – 11:19 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 In the first quarter tonight, Duncan Robinson had 5 field goal makes- 3 triples and 2 twos
All 5 were assisted by Kyle Lowry – 11:04 PM

Derek Bodner @DerekBodnerNBA Sixers outscore Warriors 32-20 in the 4th quarter for a very impressive 102-93 win, despite Embiid struggling offensively for most of the first 3 quarters. Contributions up and down the roster, Drummond’s best game as a Sixer and a masterful defensive performance from Thybulle. – 10:59 PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps It’s now Sixers 23, Warriors 10 in the fourth quarter. Philly has been awesome defensively, though Golden State has had both Curry and Wiggins miss wide open corner 3s, too. Philly leads by 10 with 3:15 to go. – 10:47 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 Duncan Robinson on Kyle Lowry:
“He’s so unselfish. He has a unique ability to just find people in little moments, little windows…He’s a luxury to play with.”
“When he’a aggressive, that’s when I feel he’s at his best.” – 10:46 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin Andre Drummond has been a plus-19 in this game and Shake Milton is a plus-21. Joel Embiid is a minus-16. That’s mind boggling to me. Normally, it’s the other way around. #Sixers10:42 PM

J. Michael Falgoust @ThisIsJMichael Drummond defending a non-shooter (Green) 18 ft from rim and falling for a fake pitch to allow Green to drive and dunk is peak Drummond v a small 5. Know your personnel. Drop and contain. Green isnt taking that shot. If he does, that’s a win even if he makes it🤦🏾‍♂️ #SixersWarriors10:40 PM

James Ham @James_HamNBA “Throughout my whole life I’ve kinda been on winning teams or always didn’t lose that many games. So I’m learning a lot just by going through some adversity here.” -Davion Mitchell – 10:36 PM

Mike Prada @MikePradaNBA Not sure I’ve ever seen Andre Drummond trap like this – 10:35 PM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater Warriors a -22 in Bjelica’s 12 minutes. Tough for the Warriors to play this Sixers frontline — 48 minutes of either Embiid or Drummond — without either Draymond or Looney on the floor. Lack of center depth showing tonight. – 10:29 PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps Joel Embiid is minus-16 and Andre Drummond is plus-16 so far tonight — just as everyone expected. – 10:26 PM

Joe Vardon @joevardon The Cavs hold on to beat Sacramento, 117-103, for their seventh win in nine games. All of the wins have been by 13 or more points. Darius Garland with 16 points and a career high 13 assists. Isaac Okoro led with 20 points. Buddy Hield had 21 for the Kings. – 10:23 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 Kyle Lowry on the dunks by Strus and Dedmon in this one:
“They were cute.” – 10:23 PM

Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann Handily winning the Drummond minutes while getting torched with Embiid in the game, just like we all expected. – 10:22 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin The bench gave a huge lift there. Andre Drummond and Furkan Korkmaz made some shots at the end of the 3rd and Philly is within 73-70 heading into the final 12 minutes. #Sixers10:22 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat Winderman’s view: Lowry shows what leadership looks like, plus other Heat-Bulls thoughts. sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h…10:19 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 🚨New Piece🚨
Five Takeaways from Heat’s Win Over Bulls
Lowry, Robinson, Dedmon lead Heat
@5ReasonsSportsfivereasonssports.com/news/five-take…10:19 PM

Rob Schaefer @rob_schaef Final: Heat 118, Bulls 92
LaVine: 33 pts (8th 30-point game), 7 reb, 4 ast
Vucevic: 10 pts, 3-15 FG
Shorthanded Bulls lose second straight in a rout, fall to 17-10
Heat, sans Butler and Bam, were banged up tonight too – 10:19 PM

KC Johnson @KCJHoop Heat 118, Bulls 92
LaVine 33 pts, 7 rebs; 7-11 from 3
Vucevic 3-15 FGs
Robinson 26 pts
Lowry 16 pts, 14 assists
Dedmon 20 pts, 12 rebs – 10:18 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 On nights like this, if Kyle Lowry plays like he did early, he won’t need to play the 4th
Feels like that is clicking – 10:13 PM

StatMuse @statmuse The Heat have beaten the Bucks and Bulls in back-to-back games without Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo.
Kyle Lowry in those 2 games:
— 22 PTS, 13 AST, 4 3PT
— 16 PTS, 14 AST, 4 3PT (in 3 quarters) pic.twitter.com/Pm7wTzkVBE10:10 PM

Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS Interesting marketing concept: Come for Stephen Curry. Stay for Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole. – 10:09 PM

Joe Vardon @joevardon Cleveland’s 29-point halftime lead over Sacramento is down to 10. Buddy Hield has 19 points off the Kings’ bench. There is 6:30 left. – 10:06 PM

Jason Anderson @JandersonSacBee Another 3-pointer by Buddy Hield. The Kings are within 10 with 6:50 remaining after trailing by 29. – 10:06 PM

KC Johnson @KCJHoop This is LaVine’s 8th 30-point game – 10:01 PM

James Ham @James_HamNBA Buddy Hield triple. Kings within…13. 8:20 remaining in the fourth. – 10:01 PM

Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops Nope, he’s running LaVine, the Vooch and Lonzo back out there down 24 with 7:15 left. – 9:59 PM
