It’s just one game, but our own Ira Winderman — who covers the team — talks the evolution of the Heat this season and how they are trying to grow things. How these Heat are different than last year’s Heat. Well, except for the part where Chris Bosh is a third wheel.
- Bulls have no answer for Nene as Wizards take Game 1 0
- Charlotte is scrappy but Heat have too much in comfortable 99-88 win 9
- Spurs use huge 4th quarter run to come back and win Game 1 vs. Mavericks 8
- NBA issues statement saying Chris Paul was fouled before late-game turnover against Warriors 17
- Jim Buss says he’ll step down if Lakers aren’t contenders again in ‘three to four years’ 41
