Miami Heat

  1. Report: Howard likes Clippers, Heat. Please make this stop.

    Mar 12, 2012, 1:05 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Another day, another report that the Orlando Magic are leaning heavily toward keeping Dwight Howard in their camp and trying to convince him to stay. This time it’s in a series of tweets of from Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated we hear that Dwight is staying and that he still has no interest in going…

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Miami Heat

    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). Byron Scott says he doesn’t want the Cavaliers to trade Ramon Sessions at the deadline. Consider this some “give us the first round pick or…

  3. LeBron comes up big, then not so much vs. Pacers, but that’s OK, DWade’s got him

    Mar 11, 2012, 3:07 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat

    There’s this quote that’s hangs in the Spurs’ locker room. “When nothing seems to help, I go look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it…

  4. LeBron, Wade talk about passing off the game-winning shot

    Mar 10, 2012, 6:04 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    One week ago against the Jazz, LeBron James drove for a potential game-winning shot and when two defenders came to him he passed off to Udonis Haslem, who missed the shot. NBA fans screamed, “Why didn’t he take that shot? Why is he afraid of the big moment?” On Wednesday night in the final minute…

  5. The crazy schedule could really mess with playoff seeding

    Mar 10, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    Our own Ira Winderman writing at the South Florida Sun-Sentinel points out that changes this week to remove divisional opponent record from tie-breaker procedures for playoff seeding don’t go far enough. Because the imbalanced schedule impacts record as well. But if the Board wanted to carry out the process to its natural conclusion in the…

    What you missed while realizing you figured out who is going to win the Darwin Award this year…. Sixers 103, Celtics 71: This battle for the top spot in the Atlantic division — and the four seed at least in the playoffs, allowing a team to avoid Miami and Chicago in the first round —…

  7. LeBron, Wade try to recruit Peyton Manning to Dolphins

    Mar 8, 2012, 8:25 AM EDT

    Indianapolis Colts Release Peyton Manning - News Conference

    Well, if Peyton Manning comes to Miami it’s not like he is joining a super team… But the guys from Miami’s existing super team — the Miami Heat — made their pitch to get Manning to take his talents to South Beach. First Dwyane Wade tweeted this: I’m just gonna put it out thr..peyton that…

  8. Video: Jordan Farmar with game-winning three to beat Clippers

    Mar 8, 2012, 12:54 AM EDT

    Kris Humphries, Jordan Farmar

    In looking at Derrick Rose‘s game winner for the Bulls Wednesday, I questioned the wisdom of Milwaukee not doubling him and making any other Bull beat you. The Clippers did that — they started to gravitate toward Deron Williams and if he had gone to shoot two or three defenders would have been there to…

  9. Pau Gasol remaining calm as trade deadline approaches

    Mar 7, 2012, 8:46 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    Over the next week, Pau Gasol’s name is going to come up a lot in rumored trade talks. Most of which have little if any foundation, but the rumors will be out there. Gasol said it doesn’t bother him anymore. He’s moved past it. Here is what he said, via the Los Angeles Daily News.…

    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). Kobe Bryant in a black facemask was an idea that died on his 1-6 shooting start Tuesday night. Not that he got a lot better…

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Bobcats and Pistons both won. Seriously.

    Mar 7, 2012, 4:02 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    What you missed while playing a sport where you use stun guns on your opponents… Pistons 88, Lakers 85 (OT): This is why I can’t take the Lakers seriously as a contender — because after each of their big wins this year they turned around the next game and laid an egg (beat Boston lost…

  12. Dwyane Wade tweaks ankle, does not return to game

    Mar 6, 2012, 11:09 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade

    On the bright side, if you were going to tweak your ankle, this was the game to do it. Dwyane Wade suffered what the team is calling a “tweak” to his ankle in the second quarter and he did not return to the game. Thing is, he didn’t have to push it because the Heat…

  13. Catching up with Lenny Cooke, the former can’t-miss kid

    Mar 6, 2012, 6:07 PM EDT

    Lenny Cooke

    So many things can happen to high-school phenoms. Kobe Bryant is a five-time NBA champion. LeBron James is a two-time MVP. Dwight Howard is the best center in basketball. Sebastian Telfair is a mediocre backup point guard who has bounced around the league. Jeremy Tyler is currently trying to pay his dues in the D-League.…

  16. NBA Power Rankings: Bulls grab top spot by the horns

    Mar 5, 2012, 1:33 PM EDT

    Taj Gibson, Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah,

    The top three are pretty much set, it’s just a matter of who is playing the best among them at this moment. Right now it’s Chicago. The bottom three are pretty much locked in, too, but the Bobcats have really grabbed hold of the last spot and made it their own. 1. Bulls (31-8, last…

  18. Turns out Chris Bosh is pretty important this season

    Mar 5, 2012, 4:19 AM EDT

    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,…

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

    Mar 5, 2012, 1:10 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Mar 4, 2012, 7:50 PM EDT

    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.…

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

    Mar 3, 2012, 9:00 PM EDT

    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,…

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

    Mar 3, 2012, 9:10 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Mar 3, 2012, 2:05 AM EDT

    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…

    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…
