TV: League Pass
- The Heat enter tonight still feeling the sting of their Jan. 10 loss in Portland. Miami led by 12 early in the fourth quarter before falling 92-90. Guard Dwyane Wade said, “We felt like we let one slip away.”
- Miami swingman Mike Miller will not play because of the flu. He is third Heat player to miss time in the past week because of sickness, joining Chris Bosh and Ray Allen.
- Heat forward LeBron James is trying to become the first player to score 30 points while shooting 60 percent in six straight games. He is currently tied at five straight with Adrian Dantley and Moses Malone.
- Portland has lost three straight game and is under .500 for the first time since Jan. 21.
