Pregame moment of silence for the passing of the father of Udonis Haslem. – 8:06 PM

Sure it feels weird but really looking forward to witnessing Lowry make his @Miami Heat debut. – 8:06 PM

Some active NBA players voted for the #NBA75 list including Steph Curry, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Chris Paul.
Legends such as Michael Jordan, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Shaq, Dirk Nowitzki, Isiah Thomas, Charles Barkley, Tim Duncan, John Stockton, etc. also had a vote. pic.twitter.com/fxToedV6Ow7:50 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Both Caleb Martin and Marcus Garrett are active for the Heat tonight. This will therefore count as one of the 50 games they can be active on their two-way contracts, regardless of if they see action. – 7:49 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Very small lineup for Milwaukee tonight
All eyes on Bam Adebayo’s attack mode
And expect many Jimmy Butler free throws when he gets that switch – 7:48 PM

Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Bucks going with Giannis at center, alongside Khris Middleton, Pat Connaughton, Grayson Allen and George Hill.
Heat starters as expected: Lowry, Butler, Robinson, Tucker and Adebayo. – 7:43 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Bucks opening with:
Giannis Antetokounmpo
Khris Middleton
Pat Connaughton
Grayson Allen
George Hill
(Lopez and Holiday are out).
Likely not much of a chance for Heat to go big in this one. – 7:41 PM

Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Pat Connaughton and George Hill get the call for Brook Lopez and Jrue Holiday tonight for the #Bucks. – 7:41 PM

Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
As expected, Heat using a starting lineup of Kyle Lowry, Duncan Robinson, Jimmy Butler, P.J. Tucker and Bam Adebayo to open the season. – 7:40 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Heat with the opening-night starters as expected:
Bam Adebayo
PJ Tucker
Duncan Robinson
Jimmy Butler
Kyle Lowry – 7:33 PM

Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Not sure I can believe anything Kyle Lowry told @Jonathan Abrams after he said this.

As new Heat season begins, a look back at what was last season: ‘It made us who we are today’ miamiherald.com/sports/nba/mia… Also, Bucks will be without six players, including a few starters, tonight vs. Heat – 7:09 PM

Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Former Heat players Shaquille O’Neal, Ray Allen, Dwyane Wade and Gary Payton have all been named to the NBA’s 75th Anniversary Team.
Bob McAdoo, who is currently a Heat scout, also made the cut. – 6:54 PM

Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Heat tipoff against the Bucks in about an hour. Here’s how last season’s sweep impacted Miami’s offseason, and the plan to get back to the top of the East. wesgoldberg.substack.com/p/the-heats-pl…6:52 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Good for Bob McAdoo on NBA 75th Anniversary team. And deserved after being snubbed on 50th Anniversary team. He currently is working as a Heat scout. – 6:47 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Gary Payton, another former Heat player, makes it to NBA 75th Anniversary team. – 6:37 PM

Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
#Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer said they’re still figuring starters out vs. the #Heat. Lineup will be released soon. – 6:36 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Ray Allen becomes the next former Heat player named to NBA 75th Anniversary. – 6:21 PM

Brad Townsend @townbrad
“I’m a different coach than I was in Brooklyn and Milwaukee. And if I wasn’t, I would be here in this position.” Kidd adds: “I’m a lot more relaxed. The butterflies are not as big.” – 6:13 PM

Kyrie Irving remains the only member of the Nets injury report. Rookie Day’Ron Sharpe is off it ahead of tomorrow’s game in Philly. He was a late scratch in Milwaukee with a toe sprain. – 5:33 PM

The Ringer @ringernba
It still feels like Giannis has something to prove. Could he do something few players have ever accomplished and win his third MVP in four years? @Kevin O’Connor and @Chris Vernon think it’s possible. pic.twitter.com/ImZTZAFMXj5:02 PM

Frank Madden @fmaddenNBA
Not going to have high expectations for Bucks tonight in Miami given a) they’ll be without Jrue/Brook/Portis/Semi/Hood and b) Giannis/Khris unlikely to play huge minutes. But interesting opportunity to see how deeper bench guys fare with small lineups and lots of switching. – 3:07 PM

Ethan J. Skolnick @EthanJSkolnick
Thanks to Heat guard @iamgabevincent2 for joining us on @5ReasonsSports @5OTF_ to share his story.

ASK IRA: Have Heat gone big enough for Pat Riley? sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h…2:17 PM

Markieff Morris latest to learn difference between NBA condition and Heat standards. sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h… “I’ve pretty much been at the lowest body fat I’ve been at my entire career, which is 8 1/2 now, but I will be down lower than that this season.” – 2:17 PM

Evan Dunlap @BQRMagic
Jamahl Mosley is catching some heat today for only playing Wendell Carter Jr. 19 minutes last night. Yes, that’s too low, but let’s add some context: he didn’t play at all in the fourth quarter (Magic were down 23). So he played 19 of 36 minutes before extreme garbage time – 2:10 PM
