For the late night crowd, we had a lot of fun on the latest @NBABaseline:
🏀 Cavs 📈all around
🏀 Wild SAS declarations and ridiculous attempts at predicting the future
🏀 Lakers just going to have to get healthy and dig in?

Miami tonight: 91 points, 55% FG’s, 53% 3’s.
Last time Canes did all that in a game: Nov. 19, 2015.
Last time Canes did all that in an ACC game: Never.
(Came close a few times, but never that many points on that good of shooting from the field and from 3-point land.) – 11:10 PM

Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
The NBA needs to give Memphis 30 National TV games next year. The league has a responsibility to casual fans across the country to show Ja Morant as much as humanly possibly, because other than heat check Curry, he’s probably the most fun player to watch in the NBA. – 10:41 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Tonight was the 50th game this NBA season where a team attempted 100+ field goals. It’s the fourth allowed by the Clippers. Ty Lue was very upset at the 114 shots allowed vs Spurs 9 days ago.
The 35/101 performance by Boston tonight was the worst FG% (34.7) of the 50. – 10:28 PM
Dave McMenamin @mcten
LeBron James draws the Lakers within 3 on a 25-footer as we head to crunch time in Memphis. He’s 8-for-12 from 3, tying his career best for made 3s in a game. He also did it Feb. 2, 2009 for CLE and March 3, 2014 for MIA. – 10:21 PM

Tyler Herro is averaging 20.4 points a game this season off the bench, which leads the league
Kelly Oubre is next on that list at 16.2 PPG
The gap between 1st and 2nd is the same as 2nd and 14th
Yeah, the 6th man of the year award is Tyler Herro’s to win, no doubt about that – 6:09 PM

Spurs-Heat is the 10th game postponed this season by NBA. None have been rescheduled yet.
SS&E says “tickets and parking will be valid for the rescheduled game, which will be announced at a later date.” – 5:47 PM

The Heat does still plan to sign Kyle Guy, Haywood Highsmith and Aric Holman to 10-day contracts as COVID-19 replacements, for those asking. – 5:28 PM

Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Even with COVID-19 replacement players on the way, tonight’s Heat-Spurs game was postponed because the Heat did not have enough available players due to COVID-19 and injury issues.

#Pistons Dwane Casey said they need to play with more discipline than they did in the San Antonio game. He noted the play where three Spurs got behind the defense for easy baskets. – 5:21 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Casey: “Three San Antonio players shouldn’t get behind you. I don’t care if we’re facing Cranbrook High School.” – 5:20 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Dwane Casey: “We had a day to get somewhat organized.” Said his team can’t wing it despite massive roster change. Thought the team “wing’d” it against the spurs.
“I didn’t see any pull-up 3s against Miami.” – 5:19 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
The Heat plans to add Haywood Highsmith from the G League as a COVID-19 replacement. Plan has been to also add Kyle Guy and Aric Holman as COVID-19 replacements, but they have not been formally signed yet. – 5:05 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
The Heat plan to add G League guard Haywood Highsmith, as well as move forward with the similar emergency 10-day contracts to Kyle Guy and Aric Holman. – 5:03 PM
San Antonio Spurs @spurs
Tonight’s game between the Spurs and Heat has been postponed. Game tickets and parking will be valid for the rescheduled date to be announced.

On the Dejounte Murray front: The only way he’d be available to play against the Grizzlies Friday is if he returns two negatives within a 24-hour period prior to the game. Otherwise he’ll still be in protocols (assuming Sunday is Day Zero). – 4:07 PM

Detroit Pistons PR @Pistons_PR
The Detroit #Pistons announced today that the club has signed Micah Potter to a 10-day contract using the COVID-related hardship allowance.
Potter, 6-10, 248, has appeared in 11 games (all starts) this season with the @SFSkyforce, the Miami HEAT NBA G League affiliate. – 4:07 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Heat is scheduled to fly to Houston tonight, but still unclear if those plans remain with everything going on. Game vs. Rockets is Friday, so the team could technically just leave tomorrow. – 4:01 PM

Jimmy Butler getting 2 days off after turning his ankle late last game >>> – 3:56 PM
Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
On positive note for Spurs, it’s more rest for them before long road trip and gives Lonnie chance to heal without possibly missing a game. He was doubtful for tonight with a bruised knee. – 3:56 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Apparently the final straw that forced the Heat’s postponement is that the players they tried to bring in could not be cleared from protocols. – 3:56 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Heat will likely have enough to play Friday vs. Rockets, as of now. Lowry may be cleared by then since his six-day quarantine runs through Thursday, and Butler’s injury not expected to be long-term issue.
Also, this morning’s round of testing did not result in any new positives. – 3:55 PM
Mike Vorkunov @MikeVorkunov
There were 9 NBA games schedule tonight. Spurs-Heat is postponed. 75 players listed between those teams in health and safety protocol — as of 3:30 injury report.
Hawks have 13 players out with COVID-19
Pistons have 8
Blazers have 7
Celtics, Heat have 6
Bulls, Mavs, OKC have 5 – 3:52 PM

Quick write-up on tonight’s Spurs vs Heat game getting postponed: projectspurs.com/2021/12/29/san…3:48 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Unless NBA schedules three games in three nights, Heat-Spurs cannot be made up during this seven-game Heat trip, unless other games are also moved. – 3:48 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
The Heat are expected to have enough for Friday’s game in Houston, because Kyle Lowry is expected to be cleared by then, and Jimmy Butler is expected to be able to return from his ankle sprain. – 3:45 PM
Adam Wexler @AdamJWexler
Heat – Spurs game postponed tonight b/c Miami doesn’t have minimum 8 players.
MIA injury report: OUT – Adebayo (thumb), Butler (ankle), Dedmon (knee), Morris (neck), Okpala (wrist), Oladipo (knee)
Health & Safety Protocols: OUT – Cheatham, Haslem, Lowry, Strus, Tucker, Vincent – 3:41 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
The Heat’s latest round of testing today, with the results just out, showed no additional positive tests. So for now, player protocols limited to: Lowry, Strus, Haslem, Vincent, Tucker and Cheatham. – 3:40 PM
