Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Hits for career-high 24
Jaquez closed Thursday's 142-132 win over Indiana with 24 points (8-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 7-7 FT), five rebounds, one assist and one steal over 33 minutes.
It was a career-best scoring effort for the 18th overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft, as Jaquez continues to take advantage of Tyler Herro's absence due to an ankle injury. The 22-year-old wing is averaging 32.4 minutes in 11 games since Herro was sidelined, posting 16.0 points, 4.6 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.6 threes and 1.0 steals with a 53.8/46.2/90.0 shooting line that belies his status as a rookie. Herro should be back in the lineup early in December, but Jaquez doesn't figure to give up his increased role in the rotation easily.... See More ... See Less

Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Solid production continues
Jaquez ended Saturday's 112-97 loss to the Nets with 18 points (8-15 FG, 2-3 3Pt), five rebounds, four assists and one steal across 31 minutes.
Jaquez moved into the starting lineup Saturday, replacing Jimmy Butler, who was ruled out due to an ankle injury. He ended the loss with another impressive performance, scoring double digits for the ninth time in the past 10 games. He has basically been a top-100 player over the past eight games, averaging 14.8 points per game to go with 4.9 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.9 three-pointers. Although his role is likely to scale back slightly when the team is healthy, Jaquez appears as though he could be a must-roster player moving forward.... See More ... See Less
Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Moves into starting lineup
Jaquez will move into the starting lineup Saturday against the Nets, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.
Jimmy Butler is sitting out Saturday with an ankle issue, and the fact that this is the second leg of a back-to-back may have factored into the decision. Jaquez scored 15 points in 35 minutes Friday, but he could have a lot more usage coming his way Saturday with the Heat shorthanded.... See More ... See Less

Jaquez contributed 15 points (6-17 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, four assists and one steal across 35 minutes during Friday's 100-98 loss to New York.
Jaquez led all Heat bench players in scoring while handing out a team-high assist total in 35 minutes off the bench in a losing effort. Jaquez has provided Miami with a spark off the bench this season, tallying 15 or more points on the second unit in three straight outings.... See More ... See Less
Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Another quality performance
Jaquez produced 19 points (8-13 FG, 3-4 3Pt), three rebounds, four assists and two steals in 33 minutes during Monday's 118-100 win over the Bulls.
Jaquez put forth an efficient and productive effort, posting the second-highest scoring output of his young career. Knocking down three triples marked a season high and boosted his average to 35.7 percent from beyond the arc this season. Jaquez's shooting development is notable progression after he connected on just 31.7 percent of 2.8 threes per game at UCLA last year.... See More ... See Less
Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Huge workload continues
Jaquez amassed 17 points (8-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt), five rebounds and one assist over 33 minutes during Tuesday's 111-105 victory over the Hornets.
Jaquez was Miami's fourth-leading scorer with efficient production in a well-balanced offensive attack Tuesday. He's rapidly becoming an entrusted part of the rotation, logging at least 32 minutes in three straight games. Jaquez is seventh among all rookies in win shares and appears poised to carve out a quality NBA career.... See More ... See Less
Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Brings defensive stats in win
Jaquez recorded 11 points (4-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block across 32 minutes in Sunday's 118-113 win over the Spurs.
With Jimmy Butler (personal) making his return from a one-game absence, Jaquez moved to the bench and saw his usage drop from 23.9 percent in Saturday's win over the Hawks to 16.3 percent Sunday. However, due to Kyle Lowry (rest) getting the night off and Tyler Herro (ankle) and Caleb Martin (knee) remaining out, Jaquez's playing time remained fairly stable from the game before, and he was able to make up for the downturn in offense by ratcheting up his defensive production. Lowry should be back in action Tuesday in Charlotte, and though Jaquez could end up pushing below 30 minutes as a result, he should at least have a path to a consistent 20-to-25-minute role while the returns of Herro and Martin appear to be further off....

Heat's Jaime Jaquez: Pours in 20 points in start
Jaquez registered 20 points (8-17 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, three rebounds and one steal over 38 minutes during Saturday's 117-109 win over the Hawks.
Jaquez moved into the starting lineup with Tyler Herro (ankle) and Jimmy Butler (personal) sitting out, and the rookie made the most of the opportunity by delivering the best scoring output of his young NBA career. The 22-year-old has been trending in the right direction of late, scoring in double digits in both of his last two games while putting up at least nine points in four straight. He's seemingly solidified a rotation spot at this stage, but his opportunities to hoist double-digit shots may be few and far between once Butler rejoins the lineup.... See More ... See Less
