Once we started getting into them, getting rebounds, containing them to one shot, things turned around.
Noah on Chicago’s first half:
It was embarrassing.
We’re all frustrated. We’re all embarrassed when you’re in those situations and you can’t stop an avalanche like that.
You just keep coming back until they tell you your season is over. This team has been through a lot. A loss, a bad 24 minutes, that’s not going to deter us from coming back and doing our job.
Signs 10-day contract
The Heat sign Beasley to a 10-day contract. The signing is in response to the Heat’s loss of Chris Bosh, who is out for the season.
