LeBron the betting favorite at 4/5 to win third straight MVP per @BovadaLV. Durant 4/1. Paul George 11/2. Can’t wager on Wade or Kobe.

Paul George, not LeBron James, is named Eastern Conference Player of the Month for November. Which means the MVP race has been joined.

.@MiamiHEAT #Heat James Jones starting for Wade tonight.

Never discount MVP voter fatigue. There is an opportunity for someone else to grab it this season, even if LeBron's the best player.

Interesting to watch tonight: Pistons may guard LeBron with a bigger player. Saw that in Finals (Diaw) and recently (Glen Davis).
Tuesday December 3, 2013 7:12 EthanJSkolnick
7:19
The reality is that, for LeBron to win MVP w/ Indiana getting the No. 1 seed, he'll need to clearly outplay Paul George head-to-head.
Tuesday December 3, 2013 7:19 EthanJSkolnick
7:20
Because the East sucks. RT @jasghataaura We're around 20 games into an 82 game season. Why are MVPs &No.1 seedings even being talked about??
Tuesday December 3, 2013 7:20 EthanJSkolnick
7:25
Remember NBA "selects" Player of Month, no vote, just team nominations. So George over LeBron purely a decision from league office.

@MiamiHEAT: Dwyane Wade (soreness) will not play in tonight's #HEATgame.”

Josh Smith vs. LeBron James to open. Headband mano vs. Headband mano.
Tuesday December 3, 2013 7:43 ByTimReynolds
7:44
Josh Smith comes out shooting a jumper. Heat collectively smile.
Tuesday December 3, 2013 7:44 IraHeatBeat
7:46
Not a Magic night for James Jones, now 0 for 2.
Tuesday December 3, 2013 7:46 IraHeatBeat
7:46
Pistons content to let Drummond float off Battier, while Josh Smith guards LeBron. Miami may need to go even smaller.
Tuesday December 3, 2013 7:46 EthanJSkolnick
7:48
Two fouls on Drummond. Which leads to the return of Jorts.
Tuesday December 3, 2013 7:48 EthanJSkolnick
7:48
Two quick fouls for Andre Drummond and here comes . . . Big Jorts (Josh Harrellson).
Tuesday December 3, 2013 7:48 IraHeatBeat

Heat open 1 of 8 from field, down 13-4, call time, with 7:39 left in first.
Tuesday December 3, 2013 7:50 IraHeatBeat

.@MiamiHEAT #Heat down 13-2. They've hit one of first 8 shots.
Tuesday December 3, 2013 7:50 mccarthy_chas

Miami down 13-4. Shooting 1-of-8.

Not the start @MiamiHEAT wanted down 13-4 and shooting 1-8Fgs & outrebounded 7-3. Pistons 8-0 pts in paint. #ARRGH 7:39 left in 1st Q

Quick Canes update: If Chick-fil-A, expected foe is Georgia. If Russell Athletic, Louisville. And honestly, I'm not sure now which it'll be.

Josh Smith just made Chris Bosh very happy they don't have posters anymore. Oof.
Tuesday December 3, 2013 7:53 ByTimReynolds
7:54
Holy hammer on Bosh’s head Batman (aka Josh Smith) #HEATLive

RT @GotFilipina305: Who is ready for game day?? @MiamiHEAT @TheJaxShow @AAarena <—got to be ready
Tuesday December 3, 2013 7:54 TheJaxShow
7:55
LeBron vs. Jorts now. They pay me to watch LeBron guard Jorts?
Tuesday December 3, 2013 7:55 ByTimReynolds
7:55
RT @Spoon_R13: @TheJaxShow just dropped "from the land of milk and honey" for the 3 point line lol. <—got to dust that one off time to time
Tuesday December 3, 2013 7:55 TheJaxShow

Incidentally, it's Bigger Jorts now, as opposed to simply Big Jorts during his Miami era.
Tuesday December 3, 2013 7:55 ByTimReynolds
7:56
Ah the one-on-one artistry of LeBron going at Josh Harrellson.
Tuesday December 3, 2013 7:56 IraHeatBeat
7:56
Jorts thwarts James! Memories of 2012 training camp.

Eli Roe looks like Sean Payton in high school. #analysis

Rashard Lewis in ahead of Beasley.
Tuesday December 3, 2013 7:57 IraHeatBeat
7:58
Josh Smith still chucking, I see.

LeBron just asked out with 3:43 left in the opening quarter. He's got to be sick, hurt or both.
Tuesday December 3, 2013 7:58 ByTimReynolds
7:59
#HEATgame: With 3:04 remaining in the 1stQ, HEAT trail the Pistons by 10.
Tuesday December 3, 2013 7:59 MiamiHEAT
7:59
Second foul on LeBron with 3:04 left in first. He looked gassed, anyway.
Tuesday December 3, 2013 7:59 IraHeatBeat
7:59
That's two fouls on LeBron. Not the night for it, with Wade out.
Tuesday December 3, 2013 7:59 EthanJSkolnick
8:00
So no Wade, LeBron has asked out, has two fouls, Heat shooting 4 for 16, 0 for 7 from 3, 6 turnovers and down 20-10. Other than that ...
Tuesday December 3, 2013 8:00 ByTimReynolds
8:02
This lineup is made for a Michael Beasley explosion. No Wade, no LeBron, no Bosh.
Tuesday December 3, 2013 8:02 EthanJSkolnick
8:02
So now the offense is in Beasley's hands? He's in with Allen, Cole, Birdman and Lewis.
Tuesday December 3, 2013 8:02 IraHeatBeat
8:02
And Beasley comes through with a three on his first shot.
Tuesday December 3, 2013 8:02 IraHeatBeat
8:03
Not the best of Heat defensive lineups at the moments, with Beasley, Lewis, Allen.
Tuesday December 3, 2013 8:03 IraHeatBeat
8:03
Michael Beasley has played 1 minute, the game is 11 minutes old, and he's the Heat leading scorer so far.
Tuesday December 3, 2013 8:03 ByTimReynolds
8:04
Chris Andersen shoots 3s all the time in practice. First one of season.
Tuesday December 3, 2013 8:04 EthanJSkolnick
8:04
Also, Birdman just took his first 3 of the season. That kind of night.
Tuesday December 3, 2013 8:04 ByTimReynolds
8:04
Better for Ray Allen to be taking those, I believe.
