  1. NBA Playoffs: Now or never for 76ers in Game 3

    Apr 21, 2011, 5:49 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat - Game Two

    The Philadelphia 76ers are a pretty good team who could pose a threat to some upper echelon Eastern Conference teams in the first round. Miami is not one of them. The Sixers lack the ability to pound the Heat inside where they are soft. Philly also relies on getting out and running a little, getting…

  2. Heat’s Chris Bosh looks like a beast in the middle. For now.

    Apr 19, 2011, 12:02 PM EDT

    Miami Heat Bosh shoots under pressure from Philadelphia 76ers Battie and Young in the second half during Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff series in Miami

    Chris Bosh would like to play the Philadelphia 76ers every game, if you please. Remember back when Chris Bosh signed with the Heat, between all the LeBron James fawning there was Bosh saying that he wanted to play power forward, not center. They needed to go out and get a real center. And the Heat…

    Apr 19, 2011, 8:49 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat - Game Two

    The Philadelphia 76ers have a problem — they really need to get out and run and get some easy buckets in transition to stand a chance in this series, but the Heat are more comfortable and just flat out better at an uptempo game. It’s a Catch-22 for them. As evidence, we bring you LeBron…

  4. “White Chocolate” Jason Williams calls it a career

    Apr 19, 2011, 8:15 AM EDT

    DeJuan Blair, George Hill, Jason Williams

    Few guys had a career that involved as much transformation as Jason Williams. He was a high school teammate of Randy Moss who was suspended and eventually kicked off his college team at Florida. He entered the NBA all flash — ridiculous passes (like the legendary elbow pass from the Rookie Game) and wild moves,…

  5. NBA Playoffs: Heat crush Sixers, leave no doubt in Game 2

    Apr 18, 2011, 11:01 PM EDT

    wade-game-2

    In Game 1 against the Heat, the Sixers jumped out to a 14-point second-quarter lead, before coming back furiously from a 16-point deficit late in the fourth to have a chance to steal one in Miami. In Game 2, however, there was no such fight. Philadelphia’s shaky offense came back to the mean, and couldn’t…

  6. NBA Playoffs: Can Philly do more than keep it close in Miami?

    Apr 18, 2011, 5:43 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James gestures after being fouled in NBA basketball playoff action against the Philadelphia 76ers in Miami

    Prediction: LeBron James is going to break out in Game 2. LeBron had a quiet 21 points in Game 1, but was just 4-of-14 shooting. He was more passive than normal, early on in the game he was patiently waiting for the double team to come so he could pass out of it. Don’t expect…

  7. Wade at shootaround, expected to play in Game 2 Monday

    Apr 18, 2011, 11:59 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade

    After Dwyane Wade missed Sunday’s practice due to a migraine headache, there were questions about if he would play in Game 2 Monday. Yes he is, according to a tweet from our man Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel. Dwyane Wade at shootaround today, so it looks like a go tonight despite the migraine, but…

  8. Heat’s Wade misses practice with migraine, questionable for Game 2

    Apr 17, 2011, 11:28 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Jersey Nets

    There was mocking by teammates and rulings from the league office when Dwyane Wade played a few games with sunglasses this season. But those glasses were there for a reason — Wade suffers from migraines and bright lights can trigger or aggravate it. The kind of bright lights Wade plays under in the NBA. Now…

  9. NBA playoff odds: Lakers, Heat are favorites. Of course.

    Apr 15, 2011, 6:59 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    Here’s the thing to remember about gambling odds — it’s not about who the odds makers really think has the best chance, it’s about keeping money evenly spread around so the house doesn’t lose money. Meaning the favorite on the betting line is really about that being the team bet the most so the book…

    Heat James and Wade celebrate with their team from the bench against the Raptors during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    Goodbye and good luck, Joe Tait. More than Cleveland will miss you. As the minutes of the big three go up in Miami in the playoffs, who gets squeezed out? The cost of playoff tickets in New York is insane. But then again, the cost of everything in New York is insane. San Diego State’s Kawhi Leonard…

  11. How they win it all — path to the ring for the top seeds

    Apr 14, 2011, 9:22 PM EDT

    Lakers Ring Ceremony Basketball

    Boston’s Glen Davis has a great name for it: The Campaign for Champagne. This year more than any other in recent memory, the path to the championship seems open for a number of teams. The Lakers have the last two titles, but they are flawed, inconsistent and often bored. Boston and San Antonio are old, Chicago and…

  12. Chris Bosh sees Boston as tougher test than Chicago

    Apr 14, 2011, 4:43 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    Chris Bosh is not alone on this. As we started talking to people around the league in preparation for playoff previews, there are a lot of doubters about the Bulls. Oh, they’re good and everyone knows it. But a lot of people think the Bulls have some things to learn about playoff basketball. Things the…

  13. PBT’s NBA playoff previews — the first round

    Apr 14, 2011, 10:42 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Media Day

    There is going to be a first-round upset. One of the top four seeds somewhere — probably in the deep Western Conference, but Boston may be a little nervous — is going to get beat. To help you better understand what is about to happen this weekend, we present ProBasketballTalk’s NBA Playoff previews for the…

  14. How they can win it all: The Miami Heat

    Apr 14, 2011, 10:40 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    Forget the narrative. Forget the plot that turned LeBron James into a villain for changing zip codes, forget the half-baked media criticism without warrant, and forget the lazy reactions to Miami’s relative struggles at various points in the season. This Heat team is positively fantastic, and though they don’t come to the playoffs without flaws,…

  15. NBA Playoff Preview: Miami vs. Philadelphia

    Apr 14, 2011, 3:58 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    SEASON RECORDS Heat:  58-24 (No. 2 seed) 76ers: 41-41  (No. 7 seed) SEASON SERIES Miami swept the season series, winning all three contests by an average of just over 10 points per game. If there’s a bright side for the Sixers, it’s that two of the three meetings came very early in the season, before…

  16. Season’s wild final night shows why playoffs will be must-watch

    Apr 14, 2011, 2:11 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Lakers

    It was the last game on the last night of the regular season — and nobody wanted it to end. Not the  fans in Sacramento, who were loud and would not leave at the end of a wild game. Wild in every way — the shots were wild, the setting was wild,  that this last…

    Earlier today we teased you with just the first games from the Eastern Conference playoffs — giving you time to rearrange your book club meeting Sunday night so as not to miss the Knicks and Celtics. Now, here are the full scheduled dates for the first round. However, the times on some of these games…

  18. Dates, times set for Eastern Conference playoffs first games

    Apr 13, 2011, 1:16 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 6

    While the West is still trying to figure out who plays whom, the Eastern Conference has moved on to when. At least for the first games. The league has released the dates and times for the first games of those four series. Chicago and Indiana will tip off at noon Saturday (11 a.m. in Chicago)…

  19. LeBron James’ evolving post game

    Apr 12, 2011, 8:18 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    When LeBron James came into the league, he was a one-of-a-kind physical specimen who could get to the rim and pass with the best of them. Shortly after he graced the cover of Sports Illustrated, people began to question James’ perimeter game, and his jump shot was widely criticized. Over the course of eight seasons,…

  20. Heat may sit LeBron, Wade, Bosh on Wednesday (Bosh says no)

    Apr 12, 2011, 5:29 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    UPDATE 5:29 pm: Chris Bosh told Eric Koreen from the National Post (via twitter) that the he, LeBron and Wade will play in the final game of the season. Sure. I think there’s about as good of a chance of me suiting up for the Heat as all three of them, but we’re passing it along.…

  21. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Boston rolls over, Miami gets two seed

    Apr 12, 2011, 9:02 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    What you missed while signing up for Bacon Camp… Heat 98, Hawks 90: The Heat came out playing with real energy — they wanted to win this and take care of the second seed. Miami got help early on because Atlanta just played lazy defense in the first half. Hawks players did not fight over…

  22. Eddy Curry got workout with Heat, who took a pass

    Apr 11, 2011, 3:15 PM EDT

    New York Knicks Media Day 2010

    Eddy Curry — bought out by the Knick and having been working out in Chicago to get in NBA shape — got his chance. The Miami Heat brought him in for a series of workouts. The Heat need a viable big man, Eddy Curry once was a viable big man. (Don’t laugh, the Heat and…

  23. NBA Power Rankings: Chicago finishes regular season as No. 1

    Apr 11, 2011, 2:36 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Chicago Bulls

    Our final rankings make for an interesting playoff comparison — the top three come in as the hottest teams going into the playoffs, but the next three more veteran squads. Who do you take when it really matters? (We lean to the second three, but the Bulls may prove us wrong. Again.) 1. Bulls (60-20,…

  24. Celtics not intimidating teams this time around

    Apr 11, 2011, 10:40 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    Be very, very careful reading much into the end of the regular season when trying to predict the playoffs. The Lakers stumbled the final games of the regular season, Boston took the final few weeks off and was 11-11 right before the playoffs. They were the teams in Game 7 of the finals. But one…
