Michael Beasley had 13 points in 19 minutes in his second consecutive strong effort in the Miami Heat's preseason.

Beasley wanted to refute the reports that he needed medical attention after hitting himself during Thursday's game.

In his second stint with the Heat, Beasley does not want distractions and is taking a more serious approach.

“I’m coming into a delicate situation,” Beasley said. “It’s not pressure, but it is a little more to think about. I don’t want to be the reason the ship falls. I’m definitely taking it more serious than my first two years.”
