Miami Heat

  1. Turns out Chris Bosh is pretty important this season

    Mar 5, 2012, 4:19 AM EST

    Chris Bosh LeBron James

    Chris Bosh was once one of the best players in the league. We’re learning that this designation moves faster now. Due to the extensive nature of talent in this league, players are constantly rising and falling to the top tiers. In 2010, he was considered one of the best players in the NBA. Last year,…

  2. Video: Deron Williams drops 57 points on the Bobcats

    Mar 5, 2012, 1:10 AM EST

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Deron Williams scored 57 points on just 29 shots against the Bobcats Sunday— he hit 16 of his shots and was 21-for-21 from the free throw line. You can see all of them above. Well, not the free throws, but everything else. It was an impressive performance — it is more points than any player…

  3. Kobe gets his revenge as Lakers down Heat 93-83

    Mar 4, 2012, 7:50 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    You couldn’t have scripted this any better. Kobe Bryant got revenge on Dwyane Wade for his hard foul in the All-Star Game a week later, with his Lakers winning 93-83 over Miami behind 33 points on 23 shots for the Black Mamba. Wade fouled out (!) scoring just 16 points on 17 field goal attempts.…

  4. Kobe says he has no active rivals left in NBA

    Mar 3, 2012, 9:00 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant, Donte Greene

    Dwyane Wade and LeBron James will be fired up when the Heat take on the Lakers Sunday afternoon in a nationally televised game. Not because the Lakers are particularly threatening this season, but because of Kobe Bryant. He is the measuring stick for all the great players in the NBA right now — five-time champion,…

  5. Why you should and should not care about LeBron’s whole “passing in the clutch” thing

    Mar 3, 2012, 9:10 AM EST

    jamesheat

    To review, in last night’s game, the Miami Heat came from behind to lead the Utah Jazz, only to watch Al Jefferson take the lead with a hook shot. At that point, the Heat had time for one final possession. Remember when LeBron passed up the final shot and everyone gave him huge grief about…

  6. Video: With game on line LeBron passes. Again. Heat lose

    Mar 3, 2012, 2:05 AM EST

    Miami Heat forward LeBron James walks off the court after the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City, Utah

    It was like reliving the All-Star Game. LeBron James was at the heart of a comeback from 18-points down for the Heat — he had 19 points in the second half and controlled a lot of the key plays. He had another great game. But with the Heat down one with 4.5 seconds left LeBron…

  7. Friday And-1 links: Ramon Sessions trade talk and more

    Mar 2, 2012, 11:06 AM EST

    Anthony Parker, Ramon Sessions

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Ramon Session trade rumors are still a hot topic. It may be close to the deadline when it happens but expect him to be moved.…

  8. Making the advanced statistics movement relevant to players

    Mar 2, 2012, 9:21 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant, Joakim Noah, Luol Deng, Ronnie Brewer, Taj Gibson

    There is a fantastic, must read post over TrueHoop by Henry Abbott, timed to coincide with the start of the SLOAN Conference — THE sports statistics conference — going on at MIT in Boston this weekend. Abbott’s point is a good one: It’s one thing for a front office to have a bunch of advanced…

  9. Video: Dwyane Wade’s no look ally-oop to LeBron James

    Mar 2, 2012, 8:45 AM EST

    Miami Heats LeBron James shares a laugh with teammate Dwyane Wade during the fourth quarter of the Heats NBA basketball game against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Cleveland

    LeBron James and Dwyane Wade were putting on a clinic in Portland on Thursday night. They combined for 71 points on just 55 shots, they were forces of nature on defense and the Trail Blazers really stood no chance. And in the open court, there is nothing like these two guys. That is one heck…

  10. Relentless Miami Heat wear down, blow out Trail Blazers

    Mar 2, 2012, 2:28 AM EST

    LeBron James

    Portland came out with a real energy Thursday night — they were up for this one. Their All-Star, LaMarcus Aldridge, had a dozen first quarter points and the Blazers seemed to hit everything they put up. The Heat have been a juggernaut and for 12 minutes the Blazers matched it. But the Heat are relentless.…

  11. Chris Bosh to miss next two Heat games for personal reasons

    Mar 1, 2012, 4:32 PM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Miami Heat

    Our condolences go out to Chris Bosh, his grandmother has passed away. You are in our thoughts. Because of that, Bosh will be missing the Heat’s Thursday game against Portland and Friday against Utah. He is expected to return Sunday when the Heat travel to Los Angeles to take on the Lakers. The Heat will…

  12. Kobe says not to blame Dwyane Wade for injury

    Mar 1, 2012, 8:20 AM EST

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    It isn’t the type of play you normally see in an All-Star Game, where there is normally as much defense played as you see in a 100-yard dash. At the start of the second half the All-Star Game both Dwyane Wade and LeBron James tried to pick up the defensive intensity and get the East…

  13. Kobe symptom free from concussion, may play Wednesday

    Feb 29, 2012, 3:01 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    Kobe Bryant did not take part in the Lakers shootaround on Wednesday before facing the Timberwolves on Wednesday night because he is still going through the steps to be cleared to play in that game. Steps he is close to clearing — the team says he has been symptom free since Tuesday afternoon and he…

  14. Explaining the NBA’s new concussion policy (why Kobe likely sits)

    Feb 29, 2012, 12:26 PM EST

    kobe-bryant-all-star

    Concussions are not as prevalent in the NBA as they are in the NFL and NHL, but traumatic brain injuries have become the talk of the sports medical community in recent years (not just what happens to a pro athlete but in high school and college). In response to that, the NBA put in a…

  15. Wednesday And-1 links: Some rumors, Shaq, flu game talk

    Feb 29, 2012, 11:37 AM EST

    Monta Ellis

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Those rumors of a Monta Ellis to the Nets for Brook Lopez trade? Not much to them. Milwaukee will apparently listen to trade offers for…

  16. Could Dallas get Deron Williams and Dwight Howard? Yes, but…

    Feb 29, 2012, 8:44 AM EST

    Deron Williams, Dwight Howard

    So here is the scenario you will see laid out here and other places over the next couple weeks heading into the trade deadline: The Dallas Mavericks find a trade partner to take on Shawn Marion’s $8 million contract for next season (without sending any money back), then they amnesty Brandon Haywood, make a couple…

  17. Delonte West talks about, denies “that rumor”

    Feb 29, 2012, 1:49 AM EST

    Delonte West, Roy Hibbert, Danny Granger

    At PBT, up to now I’ve avoided doing a post about “that” Delonte West rumor. You know the one. Because I never believed it — no source I trusted ever confirmed it and those closest to the team always said it was not true. Yet it was out there and will not go away —…

  18. Kobe’s concussion symptoms linger, may keep him out Wednesday

    Feb 28, 2012, 9:52 PM EST

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    Normally, Kobe Bryant will play through anything — broken finger, torn wrist ligaments, even a broken nose can force him into street clothes. But the league’s new, stricter concussion policy may force him to sit out Wednesday night when the Lakers kick off the second half of the season against Minnesota. Kobe is still feeling…

  19. All-Star Weekend draws great ratings

    Feb 28, 2012, 6:37 PM EST

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    The NBA has sent out a series of press releases on the overnight ratings for its All-Star Weekend events, which were very strong across the board. The format change to the “Rising Stars Game” — which went to a “Team Shaq vs. Team Chuck” format this year, as opposed to the traditional rookies vs. sophomores…

  20. Orlando fans make a music video asking Dwight Howard to stay in Orlando

    Feb 28, 2012, 6:09 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    I’ll let Page 2’s Patrick Dorsey explain this video: On Friday we made the case for Orlando as a suitable metropolis for Magic center Dwight Howard, and included a video from local musician Jeff Wilson and the Orlando Sentinel. Now we have an updated version of the video, from local lawyer/superfan Dennis Salvagio, a.k.a. The Fat Guy,…

  21. Miami players talk about Wade’s hard All-Star Game foul on Kobe

    Feb 28, 2012, 5:50 PM EST

    kobe-bryant-all-star

    During Sunday’s All-Star game, Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade delivered a hard foul on Kobe Bryant that resulted in Bryant breaking his nose. Today, the Heat’s “Big Three” all talked about the foul and the resulting injury. Ira Winderman of the Sun-Sentinel says that Wade has apologized to Bryant for injuring him, but does say…

  22. Tuesday And-1 links: Let the trade rumors begin

    Feb 28, 2012, 11:46 AM EST

    Brook Lopez

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). The Golden State Warriors have their eye on Brook Lopez (if that whole “trade for Dwight Howard” thing doesn’t work out for the Nets). Ramon…

  23. First half of NBA season awards, second half predictions

    Feb 28, 2012, 8:45 AM EST

    Miami Heat's LeBron James dribbles the ball in the first half of their NBA basketball game against the New York Knicks in Miami

    So much for the little rest stop in Orlando. It was fun. The breakneck pace of the NBA’s condensed post-lockout season picks up again Tuesday night. The pedal goes to the metal and we head for the playoffs. Before the engines fully rev up again, we’re going to take stock. But rather than just give…

  24. Video: Kobe plans to play through concussion, Nash could be on the trade block. 5 Questions with Adrian Wojnarowski

    Feb 27, 2012, 9:08 PM EST

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports sits down to talk about the All-Star Game, the repercussions of Dwyane Wade‘s foul on Kobe Bryant, how the Mavericks can make a run at Deron Williams and Dwight Howard, and if Steve Nash could head to… Orlando?

  25. What LeBron James did in All-Star Game just doesn’t matter

    Feb 27, 2012, 6:15 PM EST

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    Not to go all Bill Murray in “Meatballs,” but: It just doesn’t matter. What LeBron James did at the end of regulation in the All-Star Game — deciding to try and make a pass with 1.9 seconds left rather than make the aggressive play and take a shot over Kobe Bryant (who was yelling at…
