Questions of the Day

Which Heat player will lead the team in assists?


Rozier. Look for the new addition to spread the ball around to get Butler, Herro and Adebayo going.

Will Sabonis top his rebound total from Monday’s win?


No. Sabonis hauled in a career-high 26 rebounds against Memphis and he will have a tough time beating that total.
