Analysis: Waiters has now totaled 34 points through the Heat's first two games, mostly because he's hit 12 of 21 shots from inside the arc. He's just 3 for 12 on 3-point tries, though, after connecting at a career-best 39.5 percent success rate last season. The streaky guard generally doesn't contribute too much in other categories, though he's had two steals in each of the first two contests.

Analysis: Waiters averaged 15.8 points in 46 games last season for the Heat. He was a significant part of how Miami turned its season around after an 11-30 start, going 30-11 in the second half.
