Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Even the Heat players are shocked when Herro does these things
Just look at their faces – 8:23 PM

Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Tyler Herro doing Tyler Herro things: Hitting step-back threes and making nice reads with the ball in his hands. He has 17 points and 4 assists in 13 minutes. – 8:22 PM

Michael Dugat @mdug
Herro just Luka’d Luka – 8:22 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Mavericks hunt the Doncic-Herro matchup. Doncic misses. Tyler with the 3 on the other end. Tyler Herro at the moment is going . . . pic.twitter.com/qxAJUFPPnI8:22 PM

17 points for Herro on 7-12 shooting. Go ahead and give him 6th Man of the Year. – 8:22 PM

Luka and Herro in a shootout They each have 17 pts. – 8:22 PM

Dwain Price @DwainPrice
Luka doing Luka things. Step-back 3. – 8:20 PM

Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Kyle Lowry just got T’d up, and Luka smiled toward the Heat bench and shook his head a little.
Must feel nice to not be the one in trouble this time. – 8:19 PM

Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
The Mavericks have already attempted 19 threes. There’s six minutes left in the first half. – 8:18 PM

Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Jack Harlow about to make a whole album about Tyler Herro at this rate – 8:18 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
With his ninth point, Luka Doncic passed current Dallas coach Jason Kidd for 14th on the Mavericks’ all-time scoring list. – 8:15 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Tyler Herro is developing a new best friend in Kyle Lowry. – 8:14 PM

Michael Gallagher @MikeSGallagher
Tyler Herro bucket status pic.twitter.com/0dyy6tLJYH8:12 PM

Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
Tyler Herro currently a candidate for MVP, Sixth Man of the Year, Most Improved Player, Song of the Year, Governor of Wisconsin and the Nobel Peace Prize. – 8:12 PM

Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
The Mavs, who not long ago led this game by 11 points, just gave up a 15-6 run to the Heat and are now down.
Perhaps they will spend this timeout discussing the idea of not giving Tyler Herro wide-open threes. – 8:11 PM

Brad Townsend @townbrad
Probably shouldn’t leave Herro wide open. Just a small suggestion. The guy is en fuego this season. – 8:11 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Man oh man
Tyler Herro doing Tyler Herro things – 8:11 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Tyler Herro is . . . again. pic.twitter.com/XKXWPohlv18:10 PM

Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
And the Heat leads … – 8:09 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
And now two fouls on Markieff Morris, in addition to Butler. Not a lot of playable depth at forward for Spoelstra tonight, with Strus and Okpala out. – 8:08 PM

Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Reminder: @dramil13 and I will be going LIVE on YouTube during the final 5 minutes of tonight’s Heat-Mavericks game. Follow @LockedOnHeat on YouTube and tune in then.
youtube.com/channel/UCeDSZ…8:05 PM

Dwain Price @DwainPrice
The #Mavs hold a 30-24 lead over the Heat after the first quarter. Luka has 8 pts, Tim and Jalen have 6 pts apiece. – 8:04 PM

Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
Tyler Herro + End of 1st quarters = 💰 – 8:03 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Heat go down 11 in first, trail Mavs 30-24 at end of one. Butler with 12 points for Heat but also two fouls. – 8:03 PM

Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
End of first quarter: Mavericks 30, Heat 24. Jimmy Butler with 12 points. Dallas led by as many as 11 in the opening period. – 8:03 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Butler checks out:
Dallas- 24
Jimmy Butler- 12
Rest of Heat- 6 – 7:58 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Caleb Martin as third Heat reserve. So he is the new Max Strus. – 7:58 PM

Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Caleb Martin checking in. Looks like he will get Max Strus’ minutes tonight. – 7:58 PM

Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
P.J. Tucker on Luka now that Jimmy Butler is playing with a foul in the first quarter. – 7:55 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
With Duncan Robinson’s first 3-pointer, he made it 54 consecutive games with a 3-pointer, three off the franchise record he set in 2019-20. He is the lone player in franchise history to do it in 50 or more consecutive games. – 7:55 PM

Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
Heat wearing their red uniforms in Dallas. Believe they’ve done that before … pic.twitter.com/9oC4FWG8Pg7:50 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Kareem-Abdul Dedmon is back – 7:50 PM

Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
The rims in Dallas are very loud. – 7:47 PM

Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Stop me if you’re heard this before, but there’s another first-quarter, double-digit lead in a Mavs game
Except this time, Mavs are on the right side. They’ve hit 4 of their first 6 threes, including one for Luka, and lead 17-7, forcing the Heat to call timeout. – 7:43 PM

Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
Tim Hardaway Jr. averages approximately 100 points vs. the Heat on about 206% shooting. – 7:43 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
2 of 8 on field goals to start for Miami is less than ideal
0 of 4 for those not named Jimmy Butler – 7:42 PM

Dwain Price @DwainPrice
The #Mavs are up 17-7 over the Heat with 6:53 left in the first quarter. – 7:42 PM

Yaron Weitzman @YaronWeitzman
Kevin Harlan might be the first person other than Mark Cuban to describe the Mavericks hiring of Jason Kidd as “a great hire.” – 7:41 PM

Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
The Mavericks take a lot of threes and the Heat gives up a lot of three-point attempts. Dallas making its threes early and lead 17-7. – 7:41 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Tim Hardaway Jr. with his usual against the Heat. – 7:40 PM

Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Mavericks make three of their first five threes and lead 12-5. – 7:39 PM

Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Early game traffic? Lines to show vaccine cards/tests? Rolling Stones concert at the Cotton Bowl?
There’s, like, not many people in AAC for Mavs-Heat opening tip. pic.twitter.com/0lLlh8GR7B7:36 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
And the hounding begins
Jimmy starts on Luka
Bam switches onto him
Out of bounds
PJ Tucker guards Luka
Lowry forces a shot clock violation – 7:34 PM

Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Jimmy Butler started on Luka Doncic. But P.J. Tucker and Bam Adebayo both switched on to him on the first possession. – 7:33 PM

Brad Townsend @townbrad
Charles Barkley on TNT: “I’m curious to watch Dallas tonight. Because Dallas, the way they’re constructed, they need to make a trade, but I want to see if they get beat-down tonight to confirm that.” – 7:33 PM

Butler opens defensively on Doncic. – 7:33 PM

Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
Two teams that beat Miami are in the top 3 of the first CFP rankings. – 7:20 PM

Mark Followill @MFollowill
First start of the year for Jalen Brunson. In 12 starts last year he avg 16.8 ppg. Mavs vs Heat on BSSW. Tip at 6:32 tonight – 7:20 PM

Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
The Mavericks have the third-worst rebounding percentage in the NBA, and are without Maxi Kleber and Kristaps Porzingis. There could be some second-chance opportunities for the Heat tonight … – 7:19 PM

Chuck Cooperstein @coopmavs
Mavs starters: Hardaway, DFS, Powell, Brunson, Doncic
MIA starters: Butler, Tucker, Adebayo, Robinson, Lowry
6:30 Tip @theeagledallas7:05 PM

Udonis Haslem is back with the Heat tonight. He missed Monday’s practice for personal reasons. – 6:56 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Who guards Luka tonight?
The answer is Bam and Jimmy
Yes, at the same time
Miami’s going to blitz him all night long, and they’re going to force the others with the 28th best offense to beat them – 6:49 PM

Tim MacMahon @espn_macmahon
Mavs coach Jason Kidd made a point to note how much more physical NBA play has been this season. (Perhaps related: Luka Doncic is averaging only 4.7 free throw attempts per game — by far a career low — and the bruising Heat are in town tonight.)
Some of Kidd’s comments: pic.twitter.com/FJVgWNTUde6:49 PM

Mark Followill @MFollowill
Most of the time when a Mavs game is on the national network it’s on tonight, we’re not on the air. Tonight is an exception, Mavs vs Heat is on BSSW at 6:30p. Mavs 4-2 so far & 3-0 at home. Miami the early and runaway leaders in net rating so far at 16.5, thx to five 10+ pt wins – 3:59 PM
