  1. Pacers have struggled since trading Danny Granger. Heat official: ‘Now you see why we didn’t trade’ Udonis Haslem.

    Apr 4, 2014, 8:21 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    Chemistry is important, and the Heat use the Pacers’ dealing of Granger — and the horrific results since — as justification for keeping Udonis Haslem.

  2. Monday NBA grades: Celebrating the beautiful game of the Spurs

    Apr 1, 2014, 3:01 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Indiana Pacers

    Too often we take the Spurs and the beauty of how they play basketball for granted. We shouldn’t.

  3. Andrew Wiggins makes it official, declares for NBA Draft

    Mar 31, 2014, 4:09 PM EDT

    Towson v Kansas

    As has been expected since the day he stepped on the Kansas campus, Andrew Wiggins has declared for the NBA Draft. He is in the mix for the No. 1 overall pick.

  4. Wade, Allen, Oden, Chalmers all out for Heat Friday vs. Pistons

    Mar 28, 2014, 6:45 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Four

    Is this the Miami Heat’s Los Angeles Lakers imitation? The Miami Heat will be without three starters — Dwyane Wade, Greg Oden and Mario Chalmers — plus sixth man Ray Allen for Friday night’s game in Detroit, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN. So if LeBron James didn’t think he was already carrying enough load……

  5. Wednesday NBA grades: The Indiana Pacers we remember reappeared

    Mar 27, 2014, 3:33 AM EDT

    Roy Hibbert

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while hating on the idea of Monopoly “house rules”…. Indiana Pacers. It wasn’t pretty, but what mattered was the fight in the team. And the win over Miami, but more than that the fight it took from them to get there. Indiana had been slogging through the season,…

  6. Pacers edge Heat in showdown of East’s top teams

    Mar 26, 2014, 11:28 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Two

    The Pacers and the Heat haven’t been playing anywhere near their best basketball as of late, and whether that’s a product of late-season malaise or simply a combination of fatigue and attrition remains to be seen. Their matchup on Wednesday was largely more of the same, before the fourth quarter began and the competitive fire…

  7. PBT Extra: Previewing Heat vs. Pacers Wednesday showdown

    Mar 26, 2014, 3:55 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Five

    The first thing to know: This Wednesday night showdown between the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers is not going to be a great preview of the Eastern Conference Finals. Yes, I still think they meet in the ECF (the odds of it in my mind have gone from 99.9% down to 90%, but I still…

  8. Greg Oden to start for Heat Monday against former team Trail Blazers

    Mar 24, 2014, 2:22 PM EDT

    oden heat

    Greg Oden is playing it down, but he will start against the team that drafted him No. 1 all those years ago. It will be emotional.

  9. LeBron says Heat have ‘too many excuses’ after losing for seventh time in last 11 games

    Mar 23, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    lebron

    LeBron was unusually irritable after Heat’s seventh loss in last 11 games. Time to get the stars some rest?

  10. Portland Trail Blazers first tweet ever is just depressing

    Mar 20, 2014, 4:47 PM EDT

    Image (1) twitter-fail-whale-thumb-250x187-20431.png for post 4192

    Ugh. Their first tweet war just before the 2007 NBA Draft.

  11. LeBron James will not play Wednesday vs. Celtics (officially it’s back spasms)

    Mar 19, 2014, 7:01 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Brooklyn Nets

    LeBron James dropped 43 on Cleveland Tuesday night then is out Wednesday vs. Celtics. Welcome to the “rest our guys for the playoffs” point of the season.

  12. Heat’s Spoelstra says Greg Oden’s move to starting lineup may be permanent

    Mar 18, 2014, 7:16 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat

    Miami won two titles going small, playing “space and pace” basketball. (Tell me again how Mike D’Antoni’s system can’t win a title, because this is that with elite players who are better on defenders.) However as this season has gone on the Heat have moved more and more toward a big lineup, with Chris Bosh…

  13. LeBron out vs. Bulls due to broken nose, Greg Oden will start in his place

    Feb 23, 2014, 3:06 PM EDT

    oden heat

    The mask will have to wait, at least for one game. LeBron James has been ruled out of Sunday afternoon’s nationally televised contest against the Bulls due to the broken nose he suffered in Thursday’s win over the Thunder. Erik Spoelstra informed reporters of the decision before the game, and also told them who will…

  14. LeBron: Heat ‘didn’t have much of a reaction at all’ to Pacers signing Andrew Bynum

    Feb 2, 2014, 2:00 PM EDT

    lebron bynum

    NEW YORK – Andrew Bynum ended up signing with the Pacers on Saturday, after several teams reportedly had an initial interest in his services, including the defending champs. Miami ultimately didn’t pursue Bynum, and he landed on the team that figures to be the biggest obstacle to the Heat returning to the Finals for a…

  15. It’s official: Pacers sign Andrew Bynum for rest of season

    Feb 1, 2014, 11:02 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Cleveland Cavaliers

    UPDATE  #2 11:02 a.m.: It’s official, the Pacers have announced that Andrew Bynum has signed with Indiana for the remainder of the season. Bynum had wanted to play for more than the league minimum (we don’t yet know the details of the contract yet but the Pacers could offer more than the minimum) and for…

  16. Highlights of Miami Heat’s “Battioke” event. Chris Bosh is the best.

    Jan 28, 2014, 5:09 PM EDT

    Miami Heat player Chris Bosh speaks to the media before a team practice ahead of Game 2 of the NBA Finals basketball playoff against the San Antonio Spurs in Miami

    That is Chris Bosh singing Tom Jones’ “It’s not unusual” while breaking out the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Carlton Dance. That is why Chris Bosh is awesome (that and he’s a better basketball player than most of you seem to give him credit for, but that’s another post for another day). It’s may favorite thing…

  17. Lakers make it interesting late before eventually falling to Heat

    Jan 23, 2014, 11:03 PM EDT

    lebron nick young

    The Lakers don’t have much in the way of talent these days, and looking at a starting lineup that includes Ryan Kelly, Kendall Marshall and Wesley Johnson may feel like a strong sign that the basketball equivalent of the apocalypse has descended on Los Angeles. But what the team does have is an above average…

  18. Greg Oden blocks Jeff Green’s dunk attempt (VIDEO)

    Jan 21, 2014, 9:46 PM EDT

    greg oden jeff green

    That is Greg Oden, the injury-riddled Heat big man who debuted with the team last week, starting to look like the guy the Heat hoped they were getting. The guy who can make a defensive difference in the paint. In the second quarter of the Heat/Celtics game Tuesday night, Boston’s Jeff Green got the ball…

  19. Greg Oden says knees feel “fine” after game action, could play Friday vs. Sixers

    Jan 17, 2014, 12:43 PM EDT

    Miami Heat vs Washington Wizards

    Greg Oden was back for a night and that alone was worth celebrating — he dunked, he started the second half, he played more than eight minutes, scored six points and he wasn’t the reason Miami got it’s doors blown off by the Wizards. He said felt good after the run, which means we could…

  20. The Extra Pass: Vince Carter had a front row seat for the “Miracle on Hudson” plane crash

    US Airways Passenger Jet Crashes Into Hudson River By NYC

    LOS ANGELES — “They have to be shooting a movie or something.” That was Vince Carter’s first thought. Five years ago yesterday, the morning of Jan. 15, 2009, Carter woke up in the bedroom of his home in Edgewater New Jersey, and was lazily sitting on his bed just looking out the window of his…

  21. Wednesday night NBA grades: Greg Oden is back — that is a story worth celebrating

    Jan 16, 2014, 1:57 AM EDT

    Miami Heat vs Washington Wizards

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wondering what kind of Little League coach sues one of his 14-year-old players… Greg Oden, Miami Heat. He made it back, and that is the story. Tonight he had six points on 2-of-3 shooting in 8:24 on the court — what matters is that…

  22. Greg Oden makes first regular season appearance since 2009, dunks almost immediately (VIDEO)

    Jan 15, 2014, 9:02 PM EDT

    Greg Oden

    Greg Oden was a part of the Heat’s active roster on Wednesday, meaning that it was likely he’d see his first action of the regular season on the road against the Wizards. Oden was a reclamation project for Miami, a long-term gamble the team hoped would pay off by the time the postseason rolled around…

  23. Does trading Joel Anthony mean Heat are going after Andrew Bynum? Maybe.

    Jan 15, 2014, 7:59 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Cleveland Cavaliers

    It was obvious why Golden State wanted Jordan Crawford as the centerpiece of the three-team trade that went down Wednesday — Stephen Curry has played more minutes than any point guard in the league this season and they need to get him some rest the second half of the season (not to mention the whole…

  24. Greg Oden activated, will be in uniform and could play vs. Wizards Wednesday

    Jan 15, 2014, 6:03 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Sacramento Kings

    Greg Oden could play in an NBA Game tonight for the first time since Dec. 5, 2009. The Miami Heat have activated Oden and he is in uniform as the Heat take on the Wizards in Washington, reports Tom Haberstoh of ESPN as well as other sources. Whether he gets on the court or not…

  25. Andrew Bynum learning the market for his services isn’t that strong

    Jan 13, 2014, 12:18 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Andrew Bynum missed all of last season in Philadelphia — well, basketball season, he got some bowling in. He got into 24 games for the Cleveland Cavaliers this season but saw his minutes dwindle as he is shooting just 41.9 percent and his rebounding percentage dropped. He was average on the court, at best. Combine…
