Miami Heat

  1. LeBron not at all pleased with flagrant foul from Nets’ Mirza Teletovic (VIDEO)

    Jan 10, 2014, 10:28 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Brooklyn Nets

    NEW YORK – It’s been a frustrating night for LeBron James, and things almost boiled over midway through the fourth quarter against the Nets. Miami is without three of its starters, and entered the final period trailing by 12 points. The Heat have been on the wrong end of many 50-50 calls by the officials,…

  2. LeBron gets the tough and-1 to go against Nets (VIDEO)

    Jan 10, 2014, 10:01 PM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans vs Miami Heat

    The Heat may have been missing three starters in their game at Brooklyn on Friday, but they still have the best player out there in LeBron James. The first quarter featured a duel of sorts between James and Joe Johnson, who finished the opening period with 16 and 22 points respectively. LeBron got two of…

  3. Spoelstra says Heat won’t base injury decisions on experience of other teams

    Jan 10, 2014, 8:24 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Miami Heat

    NEW YORK – The Miami Heat weren’t at full strength during Thursday’s loss to the Knicks, and a day later in Brooklyn the team found out before tip-off that it would be even more shorthanded against the streaking Nets. Shane Battier and Mario Chalmers both sat against the Knicks, and will do so again in Brooklyn.…

  4. LeBron on ‘Melo’s free agency: “You got to do whatever makes you happy”

    Jan 10, 2014, 2:35 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    To me this feels like the “Bart’s Inner Child” Simpsons episode where everyone in town starts emulating Bart. In the role of self-help guru Brad Goodman we have LeBron James, who himself went through an over-hyped free agency period a few years back. You may remember that. It was a PR disaster but LeBron bounced…

  5. Report: Spurs being very aggressive in trade market to upgrade roster

    Jan 10, 2014, 1:50 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Portland Trail Blazers

    We all know the San Antonio Spurs came within a Ray Allen three — or just a couple made free throws — of winning the NBA title last season (Spurs fans would like to stop reliving that, thank you very much). We also know that they are 28-8 this season, the best record in the…

  6. Report: Some league executives think Kevin Love will bolt Timberwolves for Lakers in 2015

    Jan 10, 2014, 8:44 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Los Angeles Clippers

    Kevin Love is frustrated — and he should be. The Minnesota Timberwolves have the point differential of a team that should be 23-12 (according to Basketball-Reference.com), yet they are 17-18. Minnesota is 0-10 in games that ended within five points, which is a combination of some bad luck and some poor execution at the end…

  7. Knicks continue recent strong play with win over Heat

    NEW YORK – The Knicks got their third straight victory and fourth in five games by taking care of the Heat 102-92 on Thursday, and while everyone on both sides pointed to New York’s defense as the reason behind their success on this night, offensively it was as simple as the team finally knocking down…

  8. Andrew Bynum clears waivers, is officially a free agent

    Jan 9, 2014, 8:06 PM EDT

    Bynum Cavaliers

    As of 6:00 p.m. Eastern on Thursday, Andrew Bynum has cleared waivers and is now an unrestricted free agent. A quick reminder of how we got here – Bynum was suspended by the Cavaliers for “conduct detrimental to the team,” a short-term solution while they attempted to trade him before his contract would become fully guaranteed…

  9. Pacers’ Lance Stephenson receives flopping warning from NBA

    Jan 9, 2014, 5:24 PM EDT

    Lance Stephenson

    We like to bring you these (this is the 18th this season), even though we all now that these warnings from NBA will have about the same impact as your parents warning to stop drinking your dad’s beer when you were in high school. The Indiana Pacers’ Lance Stephenson has been warned for a flop…

  10. Shane Battier invites Heat teammates to sing, whether they should or not (VIDEO)

    Jan 9, 2014, 3:59 PM EDT

    Shane Battier

    Shane Battier is a lot of things. Not sure “future “The Voice” contestant is on that list. However, Battier hosts an annual karaoke event — Battioke 2014, where his Miami Heat teammates such as LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade — sing for charity. It’s all in good fun not good singing. This is…

  11. Stephen Curry moves past Chris Paul as starter in latest NBA All-Star balloting

    Jan 9, 2014, 3:24 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    We can take Chris Paul’s brilliance as a point guard for granted because he’s the guy throwing the lobs, not the guy finishing the highlight play. Paul can score and take over a game, but his mastery of the point guard play is subtler than that — he takes over games by dictating flow and…

  12. Ray Allen says sequel to “He Got Game” being discussed

    Jan 9, 2014, 1:04 PM EDT

    Ideas for movies float around Hollywood like trade ideas float around the D-League Showcase in Reno — there are a ton of ideas and conversations, but the ones that come to fruition and make to the big screen are few and far between. That said, how would you feel about a “He Got Game” sequel?…

  13. Kevin Garnett explains Joe Johnson’s nickname: ‘Joe Jesus’

    Jan 8, 2014, 12:55 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Brooklyn Nets

    Kevin Garnett used to play with someone nicknamed Jesus Shuttlesworth, but Garnett has tried to erase Ray Allen from his life. Now, Garnett is playing with a new teammate he calls Jesus: Joe Johnson. “He might not be there when you call on him, but he’s there when you need him,” Garnett said in the…

  14. LeBron James kisses woman in front row (plus a dunk VIDEO)

    Jan 8, 2014, 9:17 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans vs Miami Heat

    You know, if you pay the big bucks for the courtside seats for a Heat game, you should get a little something extra. In this case, the lady just wanted a picture of LeBron James after he fell to the floor in front of her, instead she got a little kiss. By the way, LeBron…

  15. The Extra Pass: Quiet Jazz and Tuesday’s recaps

    Gordon Hayward

    For the most part, the Utah Jazz typically fly under the radar. Occasionally they’ll pop up after unexpectedly beating a contender, like they did last night with a victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. But other than that? You won’t hear much out of Utah. No real trade rumors, no murmurs of unhappiness, no headline…

  16. Tuesday night NBA grades: Durant gets more points, Hayward will take the win

    Jan 8, 2014, 2:05 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Utah Jazz

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wakeboarding in a flooded garage…. Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder. No Russell Westbrook. No Serge Ibaka. Nights like this Kevin Durant has to go supernova for the Thunder to have a chance and he did — 48 points overall, 11 in the fourth quarter…

    Lebron James

    So how did you spend part of your New Year’s Eve? LeBron James and his wife went to the shooting range — Lock and Load Miami Machine Gun Experience and Range, the people who supplied this video — and he fired off a M249 SAW Belt-Fed Machine Gun. That’s one our troops have been using all…

    Ronny Turiaf

    Here is our regular 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) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • One of my personal favorites around the league, Ronny Turiaf was back on…

  19. The Extra Pass: Why D’Antoni is the right man for the job; plus Sunday’s recaps

    Jan 6, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni and Dwight Howard react on the sidelines as the Lakers trail the Los Angeles Clippers, and after Howard fouled out of the game, during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    You may consider this curious timing to take up for Mike D’Antoni, considering his Lakers just gave up 137 points at home to a Denver Nuggets team that can best be described as “meh.” Believe it or not, though, pulling the wool over your eyes isn’t my intention here. Let’s be truthful: D’Antoni’s teams really…

  20. Sunday night NBA grades: Reggie Jackson hit one out of the park

    Jan 6, 2014, 1:40 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching frigid NFL playoff games while wearing shorts in the comfort of your heated home… Reggie Jackson, Oklahoma City Thunder. No pressure Reggie, all you have to do is replace an All-Star guard who is probably one of the five best athletes in the game……

  21. Stephen Curry drops 36 and 12 on Miami Heat (VIDEO)

    Jan 3, 2014, 11:39 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game One

    When Stephen Curry is feeling it there is no more entertaining player to watch in the NBA — and he was feeling it Thursday night in Miami. Curry led the Warriors against the defending champs and with his quick release, ability to shoot off the bounce and good court vision he just destroyed what has…

  22. The Extra Pass: Seven young players to watch in 2014

    Jan 3, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Cleveland Cavaliers

    One of the best parts of the NBA is watching the young talent emerge, some guys you expected to be good but others that came out of left field. Along those lines, here are seven players to watch as they start to break out and find their way in their first couple NBA seasons. Anthony…

  23. Thursday night NBA grades: Golden State get a couple “A” grades

    Stephen Curry

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while worrying about what was really in your donkey meat… Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors. When he is going like he was in this game — especially in the third quarter when he had 14 of his 36 — there is nothing you can do.…

  24. LeBron’s shoes leave skid marks on the court after he slips vs. Warriors (VIDEO)

    Jan 2, 2014, 9:28 PM EDT

    LeBron 11

    There was a time earlier in the year where LeBron James wasn’t wearing his latest signature shoe due a reported issue with the fit. That’s since been rectified, as James has been wearing the LeBron 11s on a regular basis. But a new problem arose during the Heat’s game against the Warriors on Thursday, when…

    Miami Heat's Allen celebrates a three point shot against the Indiana Pacers during Game 7 of their NBA Eastern Conference final basketball playoff in Miami

    Back in the 1970s the NBA used to allow nicknames on jerseys, and they have decided to again for one game — Jan. 10 between the Heat and Nets. SLAM got an advanced peak at the jerseys. To be clear, that is Ray Allen (34, from his character in the movie “He Got Game”), LeBron…
