QUOTABLE

Heat forward Trevor Ariza on getting acclimated since being acquired at the trade deadline: “I can say my defense is ahead of my offense, as far as catching up to what we’re doing. But as time has gone on, my teammates have done a great job of telling me where to be aggressive. Coach has definitely simplified things for me to understand how to be aggressive, how to make plays, and put me in position to be the best player I can be to help this team.”
