Mike Miller suffered an injury at the end of the first half.
He hit a huge 3-pointer at the buzzer to end the half and was grimacing in pain as the Heat went to the locker room. It's unclear what happened, but he didn't appear to roll an ankle and perhaps he tweaked something in his troublesome back. Check back for updates.
Greivis Vasquez had surgery to remove bone spurs from his right ankle on Friday.
He will begin his rehab immediately and should be ready to go for the start of next season. Vasquez's ankle cost him the last two games of the season and he missed some time with left ankle issues in March, as well. No player had more than GV's 704 assists in the regular season and he should be the starter next season even though Brian Roberts had a strong second half.
The Blazers will work out Baylor point guard Pierre Jackson on June 17.
Jackson has drawn some comparisons to Nate Robinson for his 5'10" size and freaky athleticism. He'll have to work on his shot since he shot just 42.6 percent in his senior season at Baylor to impress the Blazers enough to select him at 10 in the draft. Chances are Portland could be looking at him in the second round, as well.
The Nets have not asked for permission to speak with Memphis head coach Lionel Hollins.
Hollins' contract is up after this year and he's likely the hottest coaching candidate for NBA teams outside of Phil Jackson. Hollins obviously has bigger things on his mind with his team down 0-2 to San Antonio with Game 3 on Saturday night.
Mario Chalmers (shoulder) will play and start in Friday's Game 2 against the Pacers, as expected.
Chalmers dinged his left (non-shooting) shoulder during Game 1 and ended up playing just 21 minutes. We'd expect him to be back around his usual 26-28 minutes Friday night as the Heat try to seize a 2-0 lead. Chalmers is averaging 7.3 points and 3.9 assists in the playoffs so far.
The Bulls are reportedly confident that Nikola Mirotic will join the Bulls for the 2014/15 season.
Mirotic is perhaps the best player in Europe right now, and according to ESPN Chicago the Bulls believe that he "could develop into a star at the 4." The problem is going to be a tricky buyout and salary. Mirotic may not want to come to the NBA if Real Madrid, his current club, is offering more money. The 22-year-old has all the leverage here.
Tony Allen was fined $5,000 for overreacting to a Manu Ginobili flagrant foul in the fourth quarter of Game 2.
Ginobili took Allen down hard with 26 seconds left, preventing a layup on a fastbreak. Allen proceeded to stay on the floor, holding his head even though he never hit his head. It was a classic acting job that helped draw the flagrant.
The NBA has upgraded Ian Mahinmi's Game 1 foul on LeBron James to a flagrant-one.
In the fourth quarter, James was going up for an easy layup when Mahinmi grabbed his arm and threw him to the ground. At the time, it was only called a common foul. If the flagrant had been whistled, the Heat would have gotten two free throws and the ball. Meanwhile, Shane Battier's knee to the groin of Roy Hibbert was not upgraded to a flagrant.
