In a close game the Heat beat the Spurs 103-101 in the second preaseason game in Miami. Kevin Braswell hit a last second layup to win the game. Shaq had 17 points, 8 rebounds, shoot 7-11 in 22 minutes. Dwayne Wade had 18 points, 3 rebounds, shot 9-12 at the free throw line in 25 minutes. Antoine Walker had 20 points off the bench, 2 rebounds, shot 2-5 for downtown in 24 minutes. Gary Payton had only 2 points, 1 rebound, 5 assists, 1 steal in 17 minutes.

Now for the Spurs. Tim Duncan had 16 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists and shot 4-4 for the free throw line. Manu Ginobili had 13 points, 1 rebound plus shot 1-3 from the three point line. This was a good start for the new players and they fit in with their teams. I think in the next game the Glove Gary Payton will shine instead of Antoine Walker.
