D-. <em>Stats: 35 Min, 2-9 FG, 0-3 3FG, 3-3 FT, 2 REB, 5 AST, 3 STL, 0 BLK, 2 TO, 7 PTS</em> <p>With Wade out, Mario Chalmers and <strong><a href=. PG. Miami Heat. MARIO CHALMERS

D-. <em>Stats: 16 Min, 2-5 FG, 0-0 3FG, 0-0 FT, 1 REB, 4 AST, 0 STL, 1 BLK, 2 TO, 4 PTS </em> <p>What is there to say about Norris Cole anymore? On one possession he literally dribbled the ball into traffic and around a bit until the shot clock ran out. That’s a violation, son.</p>. PG. Miami Heat. NORRIS COLE

F. <em>Stats: 13 Min, 0-2 FG, 0-1 3FG, 0-0 FT, 2 REB, 0 AST, 0 STL, 0 BLK, 1 TO, 0 PTS </em> <p>Thankfully Spoeltsra only gave the ice cold Danny Granger 13 minutes tonight. He struggled to get space and open looks against the long and deep wing rotation of the Warriors. It wasn’t a good matchup for him but he really didn’t do much to combat it, either.</p>. SF. Miami Heat. DANNY GRANGER
