John Curry news is pretty tough. Nicest guy in the world and an absolute constant at Blazers games. He was just talking to him at one of the Dallas games over the weekend. – 7:21 PM

Heat again opening tonight with their preferred starting lineup of Bam Adebayo, Caleb Martin, Jimmy Butler, Tyler Herro and Kyle Lowry, for just the 16th time this season. Even though he is back with the team, Jamal Cain is inactive. – 7:02 PM

The Heat might be undersized compared to most NBA teams, but it has still managed to separate itself as one of the league’s top rebounding reams during the past six weeks miamiherald.com/sports/nba/mia… – 6:26 PM

Brad Townsend @townbrad

Kudos to @Chuck Cooperstein, who started to point out to Erik Spoelstra that Miami has had success covering Doncic. Well, you can see the reaction. pic.twitter.com/tLpRpfFHPv – 6:12 PM

Brad Townsend @townbrad

Spoelstra is thrilled that, for this rate night, Miami will have its optimal starting lineup tonight. I’m sure the Mavs are thrilled, too. – 6:06 PM

Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang

Mavericks announce Tim Hardaway Jr. (left ankle sprain) will be available for tonight’s game against the Heat. – 6:02 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat

For Mavericks: Tim Hardaway Jr. (left ankle sprain) will be available for tonight’s game against the Heat. – 5:57 PM

Brad Townsend @townbrad

McGee and Finney-Smith, behind Powell, will be picking up a lot of the center minutes in Wood’s absence, Kidd said. – 5:55 PM

Brad Townsend @townbrad

Reggie Bullock said last week that a talk from Kidd gave him the confidence boost that is now showing in his shooting percentage. I asked Kidd what he told Bullock and he said one observation that he made was that Bullock was rushing his shot a bit. – 5:54 PM

Could Mavericks use Jaden Hardy, Luka Doncic, Spencer Dinwiddie as a trio? dallasnews.com/sports/maveric… – 4:47 PM

Most PPG – FTM for game this season:

Luka Doncic is reportedly more involved in personal decisions, but that might not be the best thing for Mavs
