    Feb 22, 2012, 8:04 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Oklahoma City Thunder

    And the All-Star Three-Point Contest continues to have way more star power than the Dunk Contest…. Kevin Durant has been chosen to replace the Hawks Joe Johnson in the Foot Locker Three-Point Contest on All-Star Saturday night in Orlando, the league has announced. Johnson has tendonitis in his left knee and is resting it through…

    The NBA has just announced the lineup for this year’s 3-point shooting contest at All-Star Weekend in Orlando. It is part of the Saturday night events Feb. 25 (along with the Dunk Contest and the tedious Skills Contest). Here are your contestants: James Jones: The defending champion.

  3. Kevin Love says he will compete in three-point contest

    Feb 10, 2012, 9:40 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves' Love high-fives fans after defeating San Antonio Spurs in their NBA basketball game in Minneapolis

    Kevin Love is an All-Star, selected by the coaches as a reserve. He earned it and there was no suspense about whether he would make it. But Love has other plans for All-Star Weekend, too, tweets Jerry Zgoda of the Star-Tribune. Love says he also will compete in three-point shooting contest at All Star Game….…

  4. Heat without Wade: Less slashing, more shooting

    Jan 23, 2012, 10:51 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    Against Milwaukee on Sunday, the Heat role players shot the ball like, well, the Heat role players from last season. Take LeBron James and Chris Bosh out of the equation and the Heat shot 25.7 percent for the game, and were just 2-of-9 from three. That stood out because it had not been the case…

  5. Heat’s depth exposes Lakers’ serious lack of it

    Jan 20, 2012, 12:46 AM EDT

    Chris Bosh LeBron James

    One year ago, the table was flipped. What held the Miami Heat back was a lack of depth — it was the big three and then little else they could count on. It haunted them in the finals against Dallas. The Lakers on the other hand had the sixth man of the year and while…

  6. Mike Miller back with Heat (which is good for LeBron)

    Jan 18, 2012, 8:35 PM EDT

    Heat shooting Mike Miller celebrates after scoring against the Spurs in the second half during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    One note we kind of glossed over from the Miami Heat’s dramatic comeback win over the Spurs Tuesday — Mike Miller is back. The three-point specialist missed the start of the season due to a sports hernia but he was back running with the Heat on Tuesday night and went 6-of-6 from three in 15…

  7. Do the Heat need another point guard?

    Jan 9, 2012, 2:37 PM EDT

    Mario Chalmers

    The Miami Heat may not have the most complete roster in the league in conventional terms, but thus far they’ve indisputably boasted the league’s most effective one. Miami is sitting awfully pretty with an 8-1 record, the NBA’s fifth-ranked offense, and its second best defense. But even those on top of the world have their…

  8. Heat’s LeBron James, Dwyane Wade both out Thursday

    Jan 5, 2012, 7:31 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    And the Big 3 are down to one tonight. Dwyane Wade and LeBron James are both going to sit out Thursday night’s Heat game against the Hawks, reports Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel. We’re weighing everything, the schedule ahead, rest, how much treatment we can do and what the recovery time will be,” coach…

  9. LeBron James cutting back on three point shots. Way back.

    Dec 30, 2011, 3:48 PM EDT

    Miami Heat James smiles after making a basket against Charlotte Bobcats during their NBA game in Charlotte

    Through the Miami Heat’s first three games, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade have combined for zero three-point attempts. Not one. Last season they would have averaged 19 by now. This is not by accident. As part of Miami’s new aggressive, up-tempo style LeBron and Wade are trying to attack the rim, not settle for threes.…

  10. Dwyane Wade leaves with a foot injury, returns to hit the game-winner (video)

    Dec 28, 2011, 8:48 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade

    UPDATE: All seems to be well now, as Wade checked back in with 1:23 left in the third. He still didn’t look to be 100 percent, but managed to bank home the game-winner with two seconds left to give the Heat a hard-fought, and very entertaining win over the Bobcats. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• The Miami Heat were…

  11. Boston fights back but Miami relentless, too much for C’s

    Dec 28, 2011, 12:11 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    Boston would not get steamrolled. You’ve got to give them that. When Dallas found themselves getting overwhelmed early by the aggressive and up-tempo version of the Heat on Christmas Day, the Mavs rolled over and played dead. Not Boston. They scrapped and zoned all the way back to make it a game. But in the…

  12. NBA “Deal Day” moves and rumors (constantly updated)

    Atlanta Hawks v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Today is going to be the Black Friday Sales of the NBA — there will be deals happening fast here, there and everywhere. Just like at Wal*Mart, you might have GMs pepper spraying others to make sure they get the player they want. It’s going to be hard to keep up with all the information,…

  13. Heat return Mario Chalmers, James Jones, and Juwan Howard for another go-around

    Dec 9, 2011, 5:03 PM EDT

    Mario Chalmers

    Although the Miami Heat’s failure to win the NBA title made them a frequent punchline, let’s not soon forget just how quickly the Heat were able to rise to the top of the league. Miami is an altogether incredible team, and though they squandered an opportunity in the NBA Finals, they likely need only to…

  14. James Jones says the owners “want it all”

    Jul 16, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Jones_James

    If you want a nice perspective on where this whole lockout thing stands, just go ask the reigning 3-point champion. I know that sounds odd. But James Jones in a recent interview with the AP put things nicely in perspective about the difference between the owners and the players. “They’re holding fast to what they…

  15. Heat’s James Jones opts out of contract

    Our own Ira Winderman of the Florida Sun-Sentinel has the story: MIAMI— Saying he merely was looking to “find the best situation for me,” Miami Heat forward James Jonesconfirmed Wednesday to the Sun Sentinel that he has decided to opt out of the 2011-12 season on his contract. Jones, however, stressed that the decision was not in response…

  16. Heat’s Riley expects Ilgauskas, Jones, and House to return

    Jun 24, 2011, 6:21 PM EDT

    Jones_James

    According to multiple sources, Heat president Pat Riley said earlier today that he expects veteran swingman James Jones and veteran guard Eddie House to pick up their player options for next season, which are worth a combined $2.66 million next season. Riley also said that he expects veteran center Zydrunas Ilgauskas, who has already picked…

  17. NBA Playoffs: Witnessing the ascension

    May 12, 2011, 3:22 AM EDT

    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…

  18. NBA Playoffs: James, Wade defeat Celtics, their demons

    May 11, 2011, 11:24 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    In the summer of 2007, a former league MVP and a perennial All-Star joined a franchise player to form a group that, when healthy, dominated the NBA’s Eastern Conference and kept its two best players from reaching an NBA Finals. They took out LeBron James‘ Cavaliers in 2008 in an amazing seven-game series that culminated…

  19. Pierce avoids suspension, but James Jones gets a flagrant

    May 2, 2011, 7:17 PM EDT

    Celtics Pierce is ejected by NBA official Molloy as teammate Garnett looks on after an altercation during fourth quarter of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series in Miami

    So the NBA has watched the tape (well, digital recording) of Game 1 of the physical Boston/Miami series and has made a few changes. The biggest news is that Paul Pierce will not get a suspension, reports Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel. Which is the only just move because he never should…

  20. Boston far from dead, but they better get well fast

    May 2, 2011, 12:30 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game One

    This series is far, far from over. Miami set the tone in Game 1. They got the big game they needed from Dwyane Wade, the Heat were more physical, the Heat bench stepped up and most surprisingly it was Boston players that lost their composure. (That said the second technical on Pierce was just bad…

  21. Paul Pierce ejected from Game 1

    May 1, 2011, 7:15 PM EDT

    PIERCE_PAUL

    There was a lot of bad blood between the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat coming into the conference semifinals, and it’s only going to get worse after Paul Pierce was ejected from Game 1 of the series. The Celtics’ captain was thrown out of the game after being involved in two altercations that resulted…

  22. Wade out, James Jones to start against Bucks

    Apr 6, 2011, 6:55 PM EDT

    Jones_James

    Heat coach Erik Spolestra has announced that shooting guard Dwayne Wade will miss tonight’s Heat-Bucks game due to a sore thigh. Three-point marksman James Jones will start in Wade’s place. Jones obviously can’t replace Wade, but the Heat do play well when he is in the starting lineup — Mike Bibby, Udonis Haslem, and Zydrunas…

  23. Report: Miami Heat shopping Mike Miller

    Feb 23, 2011, 3:42 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    The Miami Heat need a center. They could use a point guard, too, but center is the big need. They gaze into their playoff crystal ball and they see the Celtics and Lakers and their giant front lines. They realize what a matchup nightmare that would be for them. So the Heat are dangling swingman…

    For all the world cares, there are two guys in the Three-Point Shooting Contest, part of the Saturday night fun in Los Angeles for All-Star Weekend. There’s Ray Allen, who has hit more three pointers than anyone in NBA history. Then there is Paul Pierce, the defending Three-Point Contest champion. They play for the high-profile…

  25. Miami signs James Jones, really wants to shoot threes

    Jul 18, 2010, 3:36 PM EDT

    The Miami Heat needed to fill out their roster. And they’ve certainly done so decently. Today, our own Ira Winderman clues us in that the Heat have re-signed veteran wing and three-point specialist James Jones. Jones is a three point dagger man, but after re-signing with the Heat two years ago, he’s been largely marginal.…
