  1. Heat stealing offensive sets from the Lakers, Celtics

    Dec 10, 2010, 8:40 AM EST

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    During those dark, ugly games at the start of the season the Miami Heat offense seemed more like taking turns than some kind of actual offensive sets your high school coach would be proud of. Now that they are winning… there is still a lot of simple sets. Against Utah the other night there was…

  2. Jerry Sloan’s old-school thoughts on Miami’s trio

    Dec 7, 2010, 4:14 PM EST

    Utah coach Jerry Sloan is decidedly old school. Not like Run DMC is old school, I mean more like Sinatra old school Tough minded. Loyal. Movement off the ball not just isolation plays. No free layups. All of that in a good way. But that means sometimes he doesn’t mix as well with the new…

  3. Heat’s struggles against good teams meaningless come playoffs

    Dec 6, 2010, 11:40 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks

    At some point, the Miami Heat are going to have to consistently beat very good teams to reach their goal. That point is in May. Nearly six months from now. Right now, the Heat’s much publicized 3-7 record against teams over .500 is pretty meaningless as a predictor of future success. The Heat team that…

  4. Game of the night: LeBron makes his point, the Heat do not

    Dec 3, 2010, 12:41 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Cleveland Cavaliers

    One thing we knew going into this game was the Heat were capable of just blowing out bad teams — 7 of their 11 wins had come by double digits over sub-.500 teams. Make that 8 of 12. For all the hype about the Cleveland fans getting to vent their anger at LeBron — and…

  5. Report: Cavaliers hire team of attorneys to build LeBron tampering case against Heat

    Dec 1, 2010, 7:13 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    So Dan Gilbert is over LeBron leaving? Riiiiiight. The Cleveland Cavaliers owner has spent several hundred thousand dollars to pay a team of attorneys to build a tampering case against the Heat that he can then present to the NBA, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. The NBA won’t launch an investigation into a tampering…

  6. Winderman: Cleveland an opportunity for Heat to show heart

    Dec 1, 2010, 2:22 PM EST

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    For a moment, let’s move past the powder, the banned T-shirts, the extra security. Instead, let’s move into the moment itself, the heated, contentious atmosphere that will greet the Miami Heat during its Thursday visit to Quicken Loans Arena. It will be as close as the NBA gets to playoffs in early December. And it’s…

  7. Outlining the damning problems of the Heat’s offense

    Nov 30, 2010, 6:34 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    This season has gone pretty well for the Miami Heat, don’tcha think? They’re ranked seventh in the league in offensive efficiency, and sixth in the league in defensive efficiency. Aside from offensive rebounding rate, they rank in the top 13 teams in each of the offensive and defensive “four factors” (effective field goal percentage, effective…

  8. Dwyane Wade in the middle of everything wrong with Miami

    Nov 29, 2010, 5:59 PM EST

    Wade_Mavs

    Dwyane Wade remains the beating heart of the Miami Heat. He remains the focus, the center of the storm. The Heat are struggling in part because he is struggling — with his shot, with how to play along side LeBron, with the offense, and maybe with this coach. And until he figures it out, the…

  9. Erik Spoelstra, Miami Heat players downplay bump, friction reports

    Nov 29, 2010, 11:42 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    We just told you there are all kinds of reports about friction in the Miami Heat locker room… Unless you ask the Heat directly. Ira Winderman at the Sun Sentinel did just that and both players coach Erik Spoelstra downplayed “the bump” and the rumors of locker room dissention. Of the bump with James, Spoelstra…

  10. Miami Heat hold players-only meeting after (latest) disappointing loss

    Nov 28, 2010, 10:20 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    The Heat will have to forgive us, the Heat-seeking public, if we’re not overly impressed by this latest overture. It’s not that it wasn’t, that it isn’t, needed, it was and is. It’s a good sign. But it’s just one lost among so many other bad, bad signs. After Saturday night’s 95-106 loss to the…

  11. Heat’s love affair with the long two-pointer strangling offense

    Nov 27, 2010, 9:30 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    Miami got back in the win column Friday night against the Philadelphia 76ers. But the numbers from the winning box score are still jarring. The Heat took 31 shots from 16 feet out to the three-point line — those are long two pointers, the least efficient shot in the game — and another 16 shots…

  12. Winderman: Heat would like mulligan on expectations hype

    Nov 24, 2010, 11:46 AM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    The Miami Heat would like a do-over. No, not on the offseason haul of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. But rather on the approach. Uh, yeah, perhaps they did get just a wee bit ahead of themselves. “It’s not easy putting this kind of talent together,” Wade acknowledged in the wake of losses…

  13. Game of the night: Where even the Heat have to be asking “What happened?”

    Nov 21, 2010, 10:21 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Memphis Grizzlies

    When I say this, please realize that I very badly simply want to credit the Grizzlies with a terrific win. I have no idea what just happened. The Grizzlies beat the Heat in front of what is likely their biggest or second biggest crowd of the season on a Rudy Gay buzzer-beater fadeway baseline jumpshot…

  14. Chris Bosh (or one of his people) is still confused about social media rules

    Nov 20, 2010, 11:05 PM EST

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    During the second quarter of the Heat-Grizzlies game, a tweet was published from Chris Bosh’s account promoting a charity event with Pat Riley Sunday night in Miami. Unfortunately, players are prohibited from Tweeting during a game. Brian Windhorst noted the tweet and retweeted it, and subsequently Bosh deleted it. The odds of it actually being…

  15. Chris Bosh not chill on reaction to “chill” (and he talks rebounds)

    Nov 19, 2010, 2:15 PM EST

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    Ira Winderman talked about it the other day — the Heat are adjusting as much to the media scrutiny and the circus off the court with them as they are on the court. Every word they say gets dissected. Like when Chris Bosh said that coach Erik Spoelstra wants to practice and “we wanna chill.”…

  16. Miami did the right thing getting rid of Michael Beasley. For both sides.

    Nov 18, 2010, 3:25 PM EST

    Michael Beasley

    The renaissance of Michael Beasley is in full swing in Minnesota. In the last three games he has put up 33, 28, and 25 points, on 56 percent shooting, and he is 6 of 9 from three. Plus he’s got that hair. He has been the focal point of the Timberwolves offense and he had…

  17. Miami Heat reminds its fans how to be, um, fans

    Nov 18, 2010, 2:21 PM EST

    LeBron James,  Dwayne Wade, Joel Anthony, Chris Bosh, Carlos Arroyo

    The Miami Heat have the most star-studded roster east of Los Angeles — but they don’t want their fans to be like Lakers fans. Well, they want them to be rich and willing to pay for overpriced seats like Lakers fans. But they don’t want the Los Angeles fans reputation of showing up late to…

  18. Winderman: Cold dissection of every Miami Heat word may lead to fewer of them

    Nov 18, 2010, 11:26 AM EST

    LeBron_media

    The media work room at AmericanAirlines Arena is the last thing you would expect in South Florida. It is a frosty experience. How cold? A certain transplanted journalist brought in to cover the team this season has been known to wear a ski cap while filing his articulate-yet-arctic postgame viewpoints. Yet the chill doesn’t stop…

  19. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Where the Heat are running and cruising

    Nov 18, 2010, 4:17 AM EST

    Phoenix Suns v Miami Heat

    What you missed while listening to Johnny Depp read Keith Richards autobiography… Our game of the night is a reminder that the Spurs are still the Spurs, click for details. Heat 123, Suns 96: The Heat came out and wanted to make sure Chris Bosh felt loved and wanted — he had the first eight…

  20. Quote of the Night: Chris Bosh wants to chill

    Nov 18, 2010, 12:10 AM EST

    Chris Bosh Chilling

    “[Heat coach Erik Spoelstra] knows he has to meet us halfway. He wants to work, we wanna chill, but we’re going to have to work to get everything down, to get our timing down, and to get our chemistry down.” – Heat forward Chris Bosh, after a breakout 35-point performance in a dominant win over…

  21. Rockets not bad, but adrift in NBA’s middle ground without a star to guide them

    Nov 17, 2010, 4:01 PM EST

    rockets_huddle

    There are two parts to constructing a winning team. First, get yourself a superstar or two. Next, get complementary and affordable role players to go around them that fit the system. The Houston Rockets have the second part of this down, it’s the first part that has Daryl Morey stuck. But he’s trying, according to…

  22. Like a Bosh, the video

    Nov 17, 2010, 1:57 PM EST

    The guys at The Basketball Jones are just bloody brilliant. Because nobody could sum up Chris Bosh’s career in rap better than some white guys from Toronto… okay that sounds weird, but it really does work.

  23. Heat considering starting lineup changes, but options limited

    Nov 12, 2010, 11:54 PM EST

    LeBron James,  Dwayne Wade, Joel Anthony, Chris Bosh, Carlos Arroyo

    It is way too early to panic in Miami. If you thought it was as simple as just rolling out the basketball, well, you’re one of those people that thinks Phil Jackson has just been lucky. Eleven times. It was going to take time to figure out how to activate both LeBron James and Dwyane…

  24. Rajon Rondo dunks, Chris Bosh has a good view of it

    Nov 12, 2010, 8:25 AM EST

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/lPZnGf2X-pw?version=3" height="205" width="320" /]

    Chris Bosh is taking a lot of heat for his general play Thursday night, in particular this defensive rotation, or lack of rotation, that gave Rajon Rondo a clear path to the rim. We’re not going to pile on. We think the embarrassment of getting dunked on like that should be punishment enough.

  25. Game of the night: The running of the Celtics

    Nov 12, 2010, 2:30 AM EST

    PPierce_celebrate

    Boston is supposed to be the old men. Miami is supposed to be the young bucks unstoppable in transition. Then why is it that that all night long Boston was the team pushing the ball in transition, getting some easy buckets on the run? Miami was slowed, hesitant. It speaks to where these teams are…
