20-9 run to end the qtr after a cold start. Jimmy's killing us with like 16pts on 6-7 shooting but the other guys cooled off. Our defense stepped up nicely and got a shot in the arm with the bench guys. Oubre was fantastic defensively to really get us going. Good flow to the game and we're getting to the line.

If we could just cut the lead to around 5 before half I’ll be happy.

I'm worried because we're down 9 and that's been with Butler, who had 18 in the 1st, on the bench.
What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

They’ve done well to hang with Miami given how well Butler has been playing. Slightly disappointing last minute or so to be down 7 but feel we’re close enough if we can keep hanging tough.

Jimmy's just been unstoppable. Interested to see what, if any, adjustments the coaching staff can make. We were even late in the half and then the Heat finished with some momentum. I think Booker could use some more touches and could be look for his shot more, Dario has been solid offensively, Baynes is still great, Kelly's been great on both ends, Tyler's been solid for us. We just gotta get a few more stops.

I just hope Butler will run out of steam in the 2nd half.

Suns just look half a step off. Heat have definitely taken them out of their game and rhythm. But credit to this team, they are not going away

10 assists/10 turnovers so far. That would be our worst ratio for the season I would think

Dragic turning back the clock a bit and obviously likes the match up on Carter.

The heat keep just keep winning the final two minutes of each quarter. Just absolutely killing momentum.

We're really battling but everytime we get within 2-3-4 points we miss a shot or turn it over. Just can't get over that hump to take the lead and knock them back. They've held us off the whole game. Let's see how the 4th goes.

Oh man that was a huge 3 on the 3/4 time buzzer from Dragic. (I much preferred it when he was doing that kind of thing for the Suns, not against)

I think Dragic is extra motivated after Carter hand slapping in his face early in the game.
