What you need to know about heat

The Heat and Phoenix Suns game on Wednesday was up for grabs at halftime, but Miami was heavily outshot 54-35 in the second half. Miami suffered a grim 111-90 loss to Phoenix. Point guard Gabe Vincent just couldn’t get things going, finishing with just five points on 2-for-10 shooting in 29 minutes on the field.

Jimmy Butler was unable to play in this game due to sinus congestion, but the hope is that he will be back on the court in Miami on Friday night. Butler is averaging 21.4 points, 6.2 rebounds, 5.7 assists and 1.8 steals per game and that productivity will be needed as the Heat look to stave off a wave of challengers for home-court advantage. in the East.

Garland has become Cleveland’s backcourt man with Collin Sexton (knee) out for the season and he has to carry an even bigger load with Caris LeVert (foot). Jarrett Allen (finger) is also out for the Cavaliers, so Evan Mobley establishing himself at the bottom will also be critical.
