Hawks vs Heat Preview
Tuesday will mark the Heat debut of Jimmy Butler, the four-time All-Star who joined Miami on a four-year, $140.7 million contract over the summer. The team went 2-1 while he was with his family for the birth of his daughter.
On Sunday, Miami suffered their first defeat of the season, falling to the Minnesota Timberwolves 116-109 on the road. Miami rookie Kendrick Nunn scored a team-high 25 points, adding 4 rebounds and 2 steals.
The undrafted 24-year-old guard leads all rookies in scoring, at 22.3 points per game. Fellow Heat rookie Tyler Herro, a guard drafted 13th overall in June, ranks eighth in rookie scoring, at 12 points a game.
“Those guys don’t know what they don’t know,” Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra said, according to the Miami Herald. “In some ways that’s good, but they also have the great duality of having this humility and eagerness to learn, which will serve them well. They will get better as the season goes on.”
The Heat have gotten 37.7 points per game from rookies, leading the NBA. Nunn and Herro became just the fourth pair of Heat rookies to start together on opening night, and they’ve each started all three of Miami’s games.
“They still got a lot to learn. But, man, they’re not afraid,” Heat veteran forward Udonis Haslem said, per the Miami Herald. “You see those spurts of greatness within them and it’s encouraging. They’re very good listeners. They go out and try to execute the game plan. So I’m encouraging them.
“Watching them out there, the poise that they’re playing with, the confidence that they’re playing with, the basketball IQ that they have is very, very encouraging. The future is bright for them and the organization. I’m looking forward to it. It’s going to be fun for those guys.”
After opening their 2019-20 campaign with a pair of victories, the Hawks fell to the Philadelphia 76ers 105-103 at home on Monday night.
Trailing by three with 8.4 seconds left, Hawks point guard Trae Young hit the first of a pair of free throws then missed the second, and Atlanta big man John Collins soared in to tie the game up with a tip-in.
But 76ers center Joel Embiid drew a foul on Collins on the ensuing possession, hitting a pair from the stripe to take the lead for good.
Young, who last year placed second in rookie of the year voting, finished with 25 points, but he scored just 6 points after halftime. He also recorded a game-high 9 assists.
“They were denying me the ball,” Young said, according to The Associated Press. “They got it out of my hands the whole game.”
