Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 Really feel like a push in pace needs to come in the second half Lowry loves it, Herro loves it, Martin thrives in it When offense is this sloppy, get out on the break as much as possible – 7:17 PM
Adam Wexler @AdamJWexler #Texans fall 23-7 at 49ers to finish their road schedule. They scored less than 10 pts in 5 of those games: 0 at BUF, 3 at IND, 5 at ARI, 9 at MIA, 7 at SF The other 3: 21 at CLE, 22 at TEN, 30 at JAX – 7:08 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang Halftime: Kings 61, Heat 57. Kyle Lowry with 12 points, and Omer Yurtseven with 10 points and eight rebounds for the Heat. Kings shooting 54.8 percent, but have nine turnovers. – 7:04 PM
Jason Anderson @JandersonSacBee Kings lead the Heat 61-57 at the half. Damian Jones came to play in his first start of the season. Jones has a game-high 14 points and seven rebounds in 15 minutes. – 7:03 PM
James Ham @James_HamNBA Kings lead the Heat 61-57 heading to the half. Damian Jones with 14 points, 7 rebounds. 12 points for Buddy off the bench. – 7:02 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 Tyler Herro battling back again after starting poorly Adding some more physical drives to the shot profile, and got two threes to drop Both him and others need to get out on the break a bit more in this one – 7:02 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg Shots just not going in for the Heat the way they were in Houston. Lack of defensive depth being exploited. Yurtseven coming out after five minuets with two fouls was the swing point of the first quarter. – 6:35 PM
Jason Anderson @JandersonSacBee Kings lead the Heat 26-18 at the end of the first quarter. They are shooting 52.6% with an early 15-10 rebounding advantage. Miami is 8 of 25 (.320) from the field and 1 of 9 (.111) from 3-point range. – 6:35 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 Miami is just simply lost right now defensively Nobody seems to know where they’re supposed to be Looks like many were spoiled by 10 days fitting in the scheme like a glove – 6:29 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg Heat getting some decent looks but they are just missing (5 for 17 overall). Need to fix the leaks on defense, but that’s to be expected with so many new players and lineups. – 6:25 PM
James Ham @James_HamNBA Updated Injury Report vs. Miami Heat – 1/2: Terence Davis II (left ankle soreness) – OUT Richaun Holmes (health and safety protocols) – OUT Robert Woodard II (non covid illness) – OUT – 5:57 PM
Ryan McDonough @McDNBA The Celtics enter 2022 at 17-19 but I’m predicting a big January for the ☘️s Boston has 16 games this month but only 2 of them (vs Chicago and Miami – both at home) are against teams well over .500 I’m guessing the C’s go 11-5 and end the month in the top 6 in the EC standings – 5:38 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat Heat again starting their new normal: Yurtseven, Martin, Butler, Herro, Lowry. Otherwise, the six G Leaguers signed last week: Chalmers, Guy, Highsmith, Stauskas, Silva and Holman. And. No. One. Else. – 5:37 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 Omer Yurtseven is averaging 12 points and 14 rebounds since becoming a starter I think he ends up being the player of the game tonight I like the matchup and I feel they stretch him to the outside a bit in this one – 5:26 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 Coach Spo on Kyle Guy: “Tyler and Kyle Lowry were really looking for him…He’s a gamer. So when he knocks down a couple, he’s like several of our guys, he becomes ignitable.” – 4:46 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305 Erik Spoelstra on Bam Adebayo traveling with the team and being on the sideline: “Bam is the heart and soul of our team.” Says he feels being around the team like he is speeds up the recovery process @5ReasonsSports – 4:41 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang With KZ Okpala out, the Heat has 11 available again today vs. Kings: Lowry, Butler, Herro, Martin, Yurtseven, Chalmers, Guy, Holman, Silva, Highsmith and Stauskas. – 4:39 PM
Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz Raiders up 20-17 midway through fourth in Indy. Vegas win and Chargers win or tie against visiting Denver eliminates Miami barring unfathomable Dolphins comeback today – 3:34 PM
Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds Absolutely should have been pass interference and the Dolphins drive continued. Won’t be why they lost, but just more fuel on the frustration fire for Miami today. – 3:31 PM
Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz Colts rally to lead Raiders 17-13. If Indy wins and Dolphins lose, Miami would remain alive for at least another 31 hours, if not longer. – 2:56 PM
Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz If Dolphins can’t rally (down 17-3 at half), Raiders game (Vegas up 13-10 at half at Indy) becomes most important for Miami in this window. Wins by Raiders and Pats (up 28-3 Vs Jags) and win or tie by Chargers Vs Denver in LA later would eliminate Miami if Fins lose today – 2:29 PM
Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds Ryan Tannehill becomes the 260th player to throw a TD pass against the Miami Dolphins. He’s also the sixth Ryan to do it, joining Fitzpatrick, Pat, Matt, Leaf and Mallett. – 1:45 PM
