Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Oh no
Jimmy Butler not even almost trying to put any pressure
Looked like he knew what it was as soon as it happened – 11:42 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Jimmy Butler pivots to make a move, slips and goes down with a likely knee issue. Assisted off the court. – 11:41 PM
Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
Jimmy Butler is being helped off the court after appearing to injure his right knee. He’s not putting any weight on his right leg. – 11:41 PM

Miami Heat @MiamiHEAT
We take a timeout down 77-72 with 4:54 remaining in Q3 after briefly taking the lead.
Jimmy leads with 22pts – 11:37 PM
Tom Ziller @teamziller
Seeing an increasing amount of Wiggins All-Star buzz out there … are we going to have a legitimate Wiggins-KAT debate for the final West spot??? – 11:36 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Watching Kyle Lowry work the refs is an underrated aspect of the Kyle Lowry experience. – 11:35 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Miami battling in this stretch as well
Herro with short term memory, Butler continues to attack, Lowry looks like playoff mode Lowry, Martin is the ultimate role player
Question is sustainability – 11:28 PM
J. Kyle Mann @jkylemann
candace parker: draymond impacts the game without needing to score — by attacking in transition, he sees the floor and knows when and where to probe with his quick passing
isiah: trae young averages 30 points! that ain’t no joke! – 11:23 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
I’m interested to see how Tyler Herro responds in this second half
The length and overall switching continues to bother him, but how does he adjust?
He’s done a great job this season of flipping performances in the same game, but this is a different beast – 11:17 PM

Draymond Green tonight: the NBA’s first zero-point, 10-assist first half since Ricky Rubio on Feb. 5, 2020. – 11:07 PM

Draymond at his best is such a delight to watch. Basically nobody plays like him. Steph didn’t score for the first 18 minutes of this game, Warriors still up at the half. – 11:06 PM

2nd quarter went a little better, still some ground to make up pic.twitter.com/m9YhwP3DvK11:06 PM

Down 13 early, Heat go into half down 59-54 to Warriors. Butler with 12 for Heat, Lowry 11.Steph 3 for 10, 3 fouls. – 11:04 PM
Vincent Goodwill @VinceGoodwill
Butler and Lowry only played 18 games together before tonight. Really looking forward to them running a two-man game and gaining some chemistry – 11:04 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Jordan Poole looked like he was trying to sabotage Gary Payton II to get his starting job back on that lob. – 11:04 PM

Jimmy Butler doing whatever he chooses over the last few minutes
Seemed like he was coasting before this point
They need this from him tonight – 11:01 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Donovan Mitchell, on what the difference was in the Jazz’s shooting tonight: “The screw-it mentality, just letting it fly, letting shots go. … I said it after the [Warriors] game, sometimes the best reads are just, ‘Shoot it.’” – 11:01 PM
Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
Draymond Green with 0 points, 3 rebounds, 9 assists, 1 steal and 1 block so far in the first half. Kids, there is more to life than buckets. Take note. – 11:00 PM
Vincent Goodwill @VinceGoodwill
What a block from Draymond. With the left hand so he wouldn’t risk a foul. Just masterful defensively – 11:00 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Like I’ve said time and time again, the solidity of Caleb Martin is under appreciated
The dude is consistently the same high level player on both ends every night – 10:54 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
If you’re awaiting the Andre Iguodala appearance for Warriors, check in Wednesday in Dallas. His R knee has the night off – 10:52 PM
Miami Heat @MiamiHEAT
A 9-0 HEAT run has us back within 3!
Down 40-37 with 7:57 left in Q2 – 10:50 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Kyle Lowry has been incredible in this recent stretch
Working the inside one-on-one, PnR’s with Omer looking better and better
Herro and others following his spark
Big time quarter from him – 10:49 PM

Ja Morant says the Grizzlies call themselves the “Road Warriors.” They’re 11-6 on the road after punishing Brooklyn. Memphis has the 7th-best record in the NBA.

Defensively, seems like over helping needs to be turned down a bit, while in understand this team provides a ton of stress
Offensively, it’s either Herro or Butler time, or it’ll be a long night – 10:39 PM
Miami Heat @MiamiHEAT

Feels like a minor miracle that Miami is *only* down 33-25 through the first quarter… until you realize Steph only played five minutes. – 10:39 PM

🗣 AND ONEEEEE

Per Heat: Ömer Yurtseven is in the locker room receiving stitches over his left eye, he is expected to return to the game. – 10:38 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Warriors 33, Heat 25 at end of one. Poole 14 for Warriors, Wiggins 12. Heat could not take advantage of two early fouls on Curry. – 10:37 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Jordan Poole is knocked down on an and-1. Draymond hops off the bench, both knees wrapped in ice, to pick up his teammate. Little things matter in a team concept – 10:37 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Fourteen first quarter bench points for Jordan Poole. Boosted the Warriors’ offense after Steph Curry’s two early fouls. – 10:37 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Miami’s leading scorers right now are Kyle Guy and Chris Silva
That tells you all you need to know – 10:36 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Mike Brown is out of protocols and back on the Warriors’ bench tonight. First time Steve Kerr’s had both his lead assistants, Brown and Kenny Atkinson, on the bench together since late October. – 10:35 PM

Warriors have so many excellent 3-point shooters. And now they’re going to add Klay? 5 for 8 tonight and Steph doesn’t yet have one. – 10:27 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Warriors bang 5 3-pointers in first six minutes. Wiggins and Poole each w/2, Porter rails one seconds after coming off the bench, prompting a MIA timeout.

Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba
Otto Porter hasn’t played a full minute yet and has already knocked down a triple. – 10:26 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Watching the start of this one, I just don’t know if Miami has anything close to enough fire power offensively to compete tonight
They don’t seem to know what they want to get to
No base at the moment – 10:26 PM
Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
The Warriors are ridiculous, even without the 77th-best player in NBA history. – 10:26 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
P.J. Tucker enters for the first time as a Heat reserve. – 10:24 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Kyle Guy now as second Heat reserve. – 10:23 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
The one thing Miami can’t do in this one is fall into the trap of playing the Warriors game
You can’t beat them like that
The offense needs some added layers instead of constant PnR, kick-out, repeat – 10:21 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Warriors obviously think Lowry on Wiggins is a mismatch, and so far they’ve been right. – 10:20 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Warriors 13, Wiggins 10, Heat 6. – 10:19 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Curry is whistled for his second foul inside the first 3 minutes. To the bench for Poole – 10:17 PM

Alykhan Bijani @Rockets_Insider
Sometimes not possible, but wonder if Theis can use the defense playing off of him to the #Rockets advantage by catching, then dribbling into a dribble hand-off with a ball-handler when the Big is camped in the paint and willing to give up the open 3. Similar to Draymond + Steph. – 8:09 PM
Noah Levick @NoahLevick
Transition defense a big first-half problem for the Sixers — 16 fast-break points already for the Rockets.
