Miami Heat

  1. Video: Dunks galore when Heat meet Clippers

    Jan 12, 2012, 9:15 AM EST

    Blake Griffin, Joel Anthony

    The game itself was a pretty sloppy — like so many games this young, condensed season — but the Clippers and the Heat certainly brought the dunks and the highlights. So we thought we’d pass on a few from Blake Griffin and LeBron James. Enjoy.  

  2. LeBron finally aggressive late, but Clippers hand Heat another loss

    Jan 12, 2012, 3:19 AM EST

    Chris Paul, Chris Bosh

    Last year’s “it” team faced off against this year’s “it” squad and fans from both sides got what they wanted. Sort of. They both got a wildly entertaining contest that had the intensity of May. But it came wrapped in a game where it looked like both teams were on the second night of a…

  3. Nash calls Kobe’s 48 against the Suns “one of the best performances” he’s seen

    Jan 11, 2012, 7:15 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant, Grant Hill

    By now you’ve surely heard about Kobe Bryant‘s 48 points he put up in a win over the Suns on Tuesday. You likely are also aware that Bryant is playing through torn wrist ligaments in his shooting hand, and that perhaps he’s been shooting too much, to the detriment of this Lakers team. The fact…

  4. Wednesday And-1 links: Anderson Varejao is no Magic Johnson

    Jan 11, 2012, 11:29 AM EST

    Anderson Varejao

    Welcome to our morning 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). Anderson Varejao is no Magic Johnson. Here is the video proof. Paul Pierce misses having Delonte West around. By the way, West apologized for his…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Nate Robinson beats the Heat

    Jan 11, 2012, 7:40 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Golden State Warriors

    What you missed while being addicted to cracking your knuckles… Wizards 93, Raptors 78: The Wizards win! Theeee Wizards win! Warriors 111, Heat 106: This was another Miami route, they were up 17 late in the third quarter, but then Nate Robinson happened. And then Dorell Wright happened. And suddenly Mark Jackson and the rebuilding…

  6. Dwyane Wade returned to Heat lineup Tuesday

    Jan 10, 2012, 10:50 PM EST

    Miami Heat v New Jersey Nets

    In the balancing act of how patient the Miami Heat want to be with Dwyane Wade versus the need to have him on the court, the scales have tipped in the other direction. Wade was back in the starting lineup for the Heat against the Golden State Warriors Tuesday night, reports our own Ira Winderman…

  7. Mark Cuban will be on your television during Super Bowl

    Jan 10, 2012, 6:55 PM EST

    Obama Welcomes NBA Champion Dallas Mavericks To White House

    Are there going to be any NBA players on your television during the Super Bowl? Well, LeBron James will not be on the sidelines (the Heat play at home that day). Maybe he or Kobe Bryant show up in an ad, maybe not. But there will be one NBA owner — Mark Cuban. Selling Skechers.…

  8. Report: Team USA sets 19 players for preliminary Olympic roster

    Jan 10, 2012, 5:39 PM EST

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    The USA will send 12 men to London this summer to suit up and defend America’s gold medal from the last Olympic games. And that dozen will come from these 19 guys, according Chris Sheridan at SheridanHoops.com who broke the story of the preliminary roster. We’ve broken them out by position (they are alphabetical in their…

  9. Miami is not better without Dwyane Wade. Stop it.

    Jan 10, 2012, 3:00 PM EST

    Dwyane Wade, Miami Heat

    Dwyane Wade has sat out three games with a sore foot. The Miami Heat have won those three games. LeBron James has looked like the LeBron of the Cleveland era the past couple of games because he has to take on much more of the offense. So of course, some people looking to stir the…

  10. Teams undefeated in third game of back-to-back-to-back

    Jan 10, 2012, 8:15 AM EST

    Keith Smart, DeMarcus Cousins

    These were supposed to be scheduled losses. The third game of the back-to-back-to-backs thrown at teams in this lockout-induced condensed schedule were supposed to be games where the players walked around, coaches threw up their hands and the season ticket holders wondered why they came. Instead, teams are 6-0 in that third game so far…

  11. Dwyane Wade utters two scary words: plantar fasciitis

    Jan 9, 2012, 7:11 PM EST

    Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade poses during media day at the team's training camp in Miami

    Dwyane Wade has sat out three consecutive games with what has been described as a bruised foot, but in talking with Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel Monday he used some scary language. “I don’t know, man, it’s just hurting. It could be three different things. (Plantar fasciitis is) one of them. The bruise is…

  12. Kevin Love says he is the best power forward in the game

    Jan 9, 2012, 5:12 PM EST

    Kevin Love, Tim Duncan

    Kevin Love is a pretty special player. A double-double machine who on offense has smooth moves around the rim to go with shooting range out to the three-point line. He’s as good a rebounder as there is in the game. So mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the best power forward of them all?…

  13. Video: LeBron takes hard-hitting questions from children

    Jan 9, 2012, 4:19 PM EST

    Not shown: hair on LeBron's forehead.

    We’ve all got questions for LeBron James. Lots of them. But the ones that the children of Liverpool have for him are a little different. “Are you taller than my dad?” “Are you taller than a giraffe?” And my personal favorite: “Shouldn’t your first name be James?” When in Liverpool — remember he is part…

  14. Do the Heat need another point guard?

    Jan 9, 2012, 2:37 PM EST

    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…

  15. NBA Power Rankings: Heat on top, Blazers best in West

    Jan 9, 2012, 2:14 PM EST

    Miami Heat's James does a dance with Chalmers during a time-out in overtime after they tied their NBA basketball game against the Atlanta Hawks in Atlanta

    A little shifting up at the top but nothing too dramatic. Your big movers this week is the 76ers, who are playing well and moving up the rankings, and the Hornets dropping like a rock. 1. Heat (8-1 last week ranked No. 1). Chris Bosh drops 33 on the Hawks and wants you to remember…

  16. Friday And-1 links, where it’s Jan Vesely time

    Jan 6, 2012, 11:12 AM EST

    2011 NBA Draft

    Welcome to our morning 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). Jan Vesely’s hip better and the Washington rookie is expected to make his NBA debut Friday vs. the Knicks. Maybe that will help, because the…

  17. Video report: Knicks willing to trade Stoudemire to rent Howard

    Jan 6, 2012, 10:40 AM EST

    howard-stoudemire

    The Knicks have opened talks that would send Amare Stoudemire to Orlando in a swap to rent Dwight Howard, reports Donny Marshall — former NBA player and current CSNNE reporter — on NBC SportsTalk Thursday. In the video above the talk of the trade starts at the 3:30 mark. There are a whole lot of…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: No LeBron, no Wade, no problem

    Jan 6, 2012, 4:17 AM EST

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    What you missed while wondering what a crocodile would do with a lawn mower… Heat 116, Hawks 109 (3OT): No LeBron James or Dwyane Wade for Miami, yet the Heat were gritty (a little lucky) and get an unexpected win. This game was entertaining and dramatic, much more so than we expected going in. But can…

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

    Jan 5, 2012, 7:31 PM EST

    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…

  20. Joel Anthony doesn’t know why he’s on All-Star ballot either

    Jan 5, 2012, 1:03 PM EST

    Joel Anthony

    There are usually some real head scratchers when the NBA All-Star Ballot is released, mostly because due to printing logistics the players are selected well before the season starts. Good rookies or breakout players can get left off, injured players are on the list. But this year things were pretty good, not a lot of…

  21. Thursdays And-1 links, where Lakers fans are just wrong

    Jan 5, 2012, 10:52 AM EST

    Andrew Bynum

    Welcome to our morning 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). In this poll, 56 percent of Lakers fans would rather have Andrew Bynum as their starting center over Dwight Howard. Those fans are fools. I’m…

  22. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Bobcats and Knicks have the same record

    Jan 5, 2012, 4:14 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    What you missed while watching West Virginia score more first half points than 15 the NBA teams playing last night (seriously)…. Bobcats 118, Knicks 110: Boris Diaw outplayed Amare Stoudemire. Gerald Henderson took it to Landry Fields at every turn. The Charlotte Bobcats outworked a Knicks team that has a lot of talent but looks…

  23. LeBron James rolls ankle, questionable for Thursday

    Jan 5, 2012, 2:15 AM EST

    Miami Heat forward LeBron James walks during a time out in the closing minutes of his team's loss to the Atlanta Hawks in their NBA basketball game in Miami

    Miami could be without LeBron James and Dwyane Wade on Thursday in Atlanta. Wade was already day-to-day with a sore foot then late in the third quarter Wednesday night LeBron rolled his ankle when he inadvertently stepped on the foot of Paul George during a fast break. LeBron stayed in the game for another seven…

  24. NBA releases All-Star ballot, here are my early votes

    Jan 4, 2012, 4:12 PM EST

    All-star-nba-logo0103_rdax

    You can vote — and not just if you’re a Republican in Iowa. The NBA opened All-Star Game voting to the fans on Wednesday, so you can pick who will not play any defense in Orlando Feb. 26. Fan voting picks the starters, the coaches for the teams help pick the rest of the squad.…

  25. Dwyane Wade questionable for Wednesday with sore foot

    Jan 4, 2012, 11:37 AM EST

    Miami Heat shooting guard Wade drives past Hawks center Horford and center Collins to score in the first half during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    Dwyane Wade has been playing through a sore foot and rather than risk it getting worse he may sit out the team’s Wednesday night contest against the Pacers. That is what coach Erik Spoelstra told the media Wednesday as Wade had skipped the morning shootaround because of the injury. Here is what Spoelstra said, via…
