  1. NBA Playoffs: Heat win war of attrition, get split in Chicago

    May 19, 2011, 12:15 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    The final box score makes it look like the Heat evened up the Eastern Conference finals with relative ease. Miami won by a final score of 85-75, the Bulls shot only 34 percent from the floor, and Derrick Rose shot 7-for-23 from the floor while LeBron James and Dwyane Wade combined to score 53 points. In…

  2. Charles Barkley calls the Heat too “whiny”

    May 17, 2011, 5:03 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Three

    Ever since “The Decision,” the Miami Heat have been seen by many as the league’s biggest villains. However, Charles Barkley, who was no stranger to controversy as a player, thinks that the Heat have made things harder on themselves with the public by playing up an “us against the world” mentality too much this season: “[The…

  3. NBA Playoffs: Bulls look like beasts of the East in Game 1

    May 15, 2011, 11:37 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game One

    It was a line buried in PBT’s Game 1 preview but it ended up telling you all you needed to know — both of these teams can defend so it was about who got the easy buckets. For Chicago, that meant offensive rebounds — and they went out grabbed 19 of them, a full 41.7…

  4. NBA Playoffs: Heat vs. Bulls Game 1 all about defense

    May 15, 2011, 12:56 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls' Taj Gibson guards the Miami Heat's LeBron James during first quarter NBA basketball action in Miami

    There will be spectacular plays because this series features three of the most dynamic players in the league. Derrick Rose will break somebody’s ankle with a crossover, LeBron James will destroy someone in the open court. Bank on it. But highlights will not win this series. Defense will. That starts with Game 1 Sunday night…

  5. Does Bulls’ sweep of Heat this season matter now?

    May 13, 2011, 3:02 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    The Bulls and Heat met three times in the regular season. Three times the Bulls won, a couple of close games and one pretty comfortably. Derrick Rose had big games, Chris Bosh struggled. But don’t make the mistake of thinking that matters much now. For one, the most recent of those games was in March…

  6. Carlos Boozer: The Heat have two great players

    May 13, 2011, 10:20 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Let the war of words begin. After the Bulls eliminated the Atlanta Hawks on Thursday in convincing fashion, thoughts turned to the next series and the Miami Heat. How do you beat the Heat’s big three? Except Carlos Boozer doesn’t really see it that way, according to a tweet from Shandel Richardson of the Sun…

  7. Eastern Conference Finals Preview: Bulls vs. Heat

    May 13, 2011, 2:26 AM EST

    Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng, Taj Gibson

    SEASON RECORDS Bulls: 62-20 (No. 1 seed in East) Heat: 58-24 (No. 2 seed) SEASON SERIES Chicago swept the season series 3-0. The most recent game was in early March, it’s safe to say both these teams are a little different right now. Still, a sweep. PLAYOFF SERIES Bulls: defeated Indiana Pacers 4-1, defeated Atlanta…

  8. NBA Playoffs: Witnessing the ascension

    May 12, 2011, 3:22 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    This was the dream. For all the criticism, the spontaneous hatred from people he never met in cities he’d never lived, for the questions and the scrutiny, this was what he had hoped for. When LeBron James decided to abandon the franchise that drafted him and pursue a team that didn’t think Wally Sczcerbiak/Ben Wallace/Mo…

  9. In the end, it was about the Heat execution

    May 12, 2011, 2:14 AM EST

    T-Mobile Magenta Carpet At The NBA All-Star Game - Arrivals

    End of game execution — their best players stepping up in the clutch. That was the modus operandi Boston’s “big three” of Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce for years. They were better than you at both ends when it mattered most. That is why championship banner 17 flies in Boston. Miami’s “big three”…

  10. Miami big three says Celtics big three was its inspiration

    May 11, 2011, 8:12 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks

    With the torch about to be passed — not willingly, but it may happen Wednesday night anyway — the Miami Heat are paying homage. They told Kevin Arnovitz at ESPN that without what Boston did in forming it’s big three back in the summer of 2007 — Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen coming to join…

  11. Winderman: Odd NBA executive vote mostly anti-Riley sour grapes

    May 10, 2011, 2:46 PM EST

    Pat Riley

    So what does the NBA think of the notion of securing a big bag of money and throwing it in front of three of the game’s best players? Apparently not much. So despite landing LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh during last summer’s free-agency-free-for-all, Heat President Pat Riley received only a partial cut of…

  12. Video: Heat make big plays in overtime

    May 10, 2011, 8:15 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Four

    This is where the Miami Heat showed they had grown up. In overtime, they made the big plays. Granted some of them — the LeBron fade away and the Wade three — were more about individual skill than strategy, but they made the plays. You expect the veteran, champion Celtics to make the big plays…

  13. NBA Playoffs: Miami Heat make the leap with overtime win

    May 9, 2011, 11:31 PM EST

    Miami Heat forward LeBron James hugs teammate Dwyane Wade after defeating the Boston Celtics in Boston

    Early in the year, it didn’t look like they would ever get here. Miami struggled in close games. They struggled against good teams. Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh played next to each other, not with each other. They took a mountain of criticism. They weathered it. They matured as a team. They started…

  14. Chris Bosh admits he got nervous before Game 3

    May 9, 2011, 1:11 PM EST

    Boston Celtics Pierce guards the Miami Heat's Bosh during the first quarter of Game 3 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff series in Boston

    For the first two games of the Heat vs. Celtics series, Chris Bosh did not have great numbers but he essentially played Kevin Garnett to a standstill. Not in Game 3 — Bosh had 6 points on 6 shots, plus just 5 rebounds. Garnett had 28 points and 18 boards. What happened? Bosh explained that…

  15. NBA Playoffs: The Miami Heat show their ugly side in Game 3 vs. Celtics

    May 8, 2011, 1:30 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Three

    Welcome back the Miami Heat we have mocked and derided all season. We’re glad you could visit after the impressive, competent team that has inhabited your body for eight weeks. They were no fun at all, what with their championship aspirations and focused intensity. The Boston Celtics rediscovered themselves in Game 3 on Saturday, as…

  16. NBA Playoffs: Shaq is back, but Boston needs more

    May 7, 2011, 2:44 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Shaquille O’Neal will be back in Game 3 for Boston. Probably for about 10 minutes, 15 tops. There are questions about how effective he can be as he has not really played since January. And the Heat have said when he is on the floor they are going to try to run on everything because…

  17. Chris Bosh admits it’s The Big Two and Bosh in Miami

    May 6, 2011, 5:38 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat - Game Five

    When the Miami Heat do post-game player interviews, first Chris Bosh comes in and talks from the table. Then later (often quite a bit later) LeBron James and Dwyane Wade come in and speak together. It’s felt like that on the court too this season — that the Big Three is really a Big Two…

  18. NBA Playoffs: Can Boston flex its muscle in Game 2?

    May 3, 2011, 4:49 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game One

    Sunday Miami knocked the expected story lines of this series on its head — they were more physical than Boston. For all the talk about composure and the referees James Jones from three, the biggest surprise out of Game 1 was that Miami pushed Boston around. And that’s where things need to start to change…

  19. LeBron, Wade admit they fight like an old married couple

    May 3, 2011, 3:25 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat - Game Five

    For better or worse, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade will be joined at the hip for a few more years. Which from the outside looks pretty good — they are up 1-0 on the Celtics in the second round of the NBA playoffs, and they get to live in Miami and eat good Cuban food…

  20. NBA Playoffs: Wade leads Heat to Game 1 victory

    May 1, 2011, 8:24 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game One

    The Miami Heat aren’t the most complete team in the championship hunt. They don’t have a reliable starting center or point guard. They don’t have a deep rotation. They don’t have a lot of guys who can create their own shots. However, the Heat do have a stingy defense, players who can make open shots,…

  21. NBA Playoffs: Boston and Miami try to set tone in Game 1

    May 1, 2011, 1:18 AM EST

    Miami Heat's LeBron James and Dwyane Wade wait during a timeout against the Philadelphia 76ers in Miami

    Often, the first game of an NBA playoff series can feel like the first round of an overhyped boxing match — a lot of dancing around, a lot of feeling each other out, a lot of jabs but no haymakers. Not Boston vs. Miami. Game 1 is going to set a tone in this series.…

  22. What Heat-Celtics means to the Miami Heat

    Apr 30, 2011, 9:00 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    The Miami Heat want to be great. Greatness is such a bizarre concept. How often is it used outside of sports? Politics. Spirituality. Business. Show-business. And all those things are complex and contextual. But it’s what we pursue. If the Boston Celtics symbolize that single-minded obsession with gold, the Heat are pursuing something that almost…

  23. Celtics say Bosh is the key for Miami, numbers say otherwise

    Apr 29, 2011, 6:31 PM EST

    bosh-kg

    Before the Celtics practiced on Friday, one of the things that both Doc Rivers and Kevin Garnett mentioned was their belief that Chris Bosh is the key for Miami in this series. If Bosh can play well throughout — which would mean consistently outplaying Kevin Garnett — then Boston believes the Heat will be tough…

  24. Now we have what we want: Miami vs. Boston

    Apr 28, 2011, 2:42 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    Give the people what they want. And this is the series nearly everyone wanted. Old school big three vs. new school big three. LeBron James against the Celtics again — but this time he has new friends with him for backup. Tradition rich New England vs. modern and stylish Miami. Celtics vs. Heat. A seven-game…

  25. NBA Playoffs: Heat will close out tonight or regret it Sunday

    Apr 27, 2011, 5:15 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat - Game Two

    The Miami Heat are going to close out this series tonight. Sure, in theory in one game anything can happen (the NCAA bases a whole basketball tournament around that theory). Even Burnie (the Heat mascot you didn’t know had a name) will admit this Heat team is fully capable of playing a lazy, terrible game…
