MIAMI (AP) - For the first time, Ray Allen heard cheers in Miami.
Allen took the floor before his new fans for the first time Wednesday night, when the Heat held an open training-camp scrimmage before a crowd of about 10,000. The former Boston guard signed with Miami in July.
And he wasted no time making the Heat crowd happy: Allen's first shot was a 3-pointer that he swished.
Many Heat regulars played, including reigning NBA MVP LeBron James. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra watched from near midcourt, with assistants Keith Askins and David Fizdale running the teams.
Dwyane Wade, Mario Chalmers and Joel Anthony did not play for the Heat, who open the preseason Sunday afternoon in Atlanta and then fly to China that night for two games next week against the Los Angeles Clippers.
