Heat Dion Waiters (paternity leave) to miss game vs. Warriors

The Clippers almost overcame a 25-point deficit in this one, but with the game on the line, Griffin settled for a tough, tightly contested turnaround jumper that didn't really come close to going in.

But the Warriors' group of All-Stars in Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson have all been in good form to start the season and will want to put on a show in front of their own fans.

Blake Griffin missed a game-winning shot attempt, with the Heat up just one, before Miami made two more final free throws to close out the game.

The Miami Heat played the kind of suffocating defense it needed to Monday night to give itself a chance against the defending champion Golden State Warriors. The Warriors shot at a 37 percent clip, the Heat at 36 percent.

Though he has cemented a regular-season and Finals MVP for his countless versatility, Kevin Durant mustered 21 points by drawing trips to the foul line (10-of-10) to make for his poor marksmanship from the field (5-of-13) and from 3-point range (1-of-6). His ability to start games allows James Johnson to stay in the bench role he excelled in last season.

Golden State enters play at 7-3 on the year and in third place in the Western Conference. But we don't have any easy games. Curry was 1 for 9 in the first half and Durant 3 for 8 - and they went a combined 0 for 7 from deep - before Golden State got going a bit after halftime. The associated moneylines for this game are Golden State -1,550 and Miami +1,225.

numberFire's models project Waiters to average 15.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 1.1 steals, and 1.7 3-pointers on 40.6 percent shooting over 31.3 minutes per game for the remainder of the season.

Shootings touch Kerr personally.

"It's just terrible, and that's the prevailing sentiment from all of us today", Kerr said. Too often, I think we get caught up in political rhetoric, Second Amendment rights, NRA stuff. "Let's do the sensible thing". Miami lost its fourth straight on the Warriors' home floor.

Seven players are averaging at least 10.3 points per game for the Heat, they are: Goran Dragic (19.3), Hassan Whiteside (18.3), Dion Waiters (15.9), James Johnson (12.6), Tyler Johnson (11.0), Josh Richardson (10.3) and Kelly Olynyk (10.3) per game.

NOTES: Warriors backup PF David West was inactive, a move meant to give the 15-year National Basketball Association veteran rest.

The Warriors are really, really good: But you already knew that. This will be the second consecutive game he'll miss as he also wasn't present for the team's victory over the LA Clippers on Sunday afternoon.
