Miami Heat

  1. Dallas gets to sit back and relax… but don’t expect rust

    May 26, 2011, 2:42 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    Dallas now has some time to put its feet up and relax after polishing off the Thunder 100-96 in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals. They’ve got a wait ahead of them. At least until next Tuesday (if Miami wins on Thursday night), maybe until June 2 (if Chicago wins). Either way, nearly a…

  2. Quote of the Day: Celtics owner not a Heat fan

    May 25, 2011, 10:20 PM EDT

    Miami Heat forward LeBron James and Chris Boch react towards the end of the fourth quarter against the Boston Celtics in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff series in Boston

    “I am watching this year because I want Miami to lose so badly. I’m rooting hard against the Heat.” —Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck, on WEEI radio in Boston, talking about if he is still watching the playoffs now that the Celtics are out of it. See, a lot of you do have something in common with…

  3. Winderman: Mike Miller gives Heat big thumbs up

    May 25, 2011, 3:20 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    What has no thumbs and yet could give the Heat a grip on the NBA title for the next few seasons? Mike Miller. Still recovering from preseason surgery on his right thumb and poised for offseason surgery on his left thumb, the veteran swingman stands as an example of how much a player with a…

  4. Thibodeau thinks Derrick Rose not getting the calls

    May 25, 2011, 12:37 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Three

    Derrick Rose has averaged 6.5 free throws a game so far in the Eastern Conference Finals, which is down just slightly from the 6.9 trips to the line he averaged during the regular season. But Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau was expecting a lot more. And he’s blaming the officials. Kind of. In an “I don’t…

  5. To add to Bulls woes, Omer Asik done for season

    May 25, 2011, 10:01 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Omer Asik barely made it out on the court as it was. The Bulls Turkish backup center had a lower leg strain that would have had him sitting during the regular season but he went through warm-ups and gave it a go Tuesday night. He was on the court for less than a minute when…

  6. Video: Derrick Rose just abuses rim, Joel Anthony

    May 25, 2011, 8:10 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    In the first half of Tuesday night’s Game 4, Derrick Rose attacked the rim as hard as he has all playoffs. Maybe all season. He was determined to break down the Heat’s defense. One result of that was one of the best dunks of the playoffs — a monster throwdown where he weaves through the…

  7. NBA Playoffs: Bulls bring energy but shooting betrays them

    May 25, 2011, 2:03 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    Derrick Rose was true to his word, he attacked the rim with a recklessness and aggressiveness not seen in this series. The Bulls played defense with energy and desperation not seen this series. And it was not enough — in the end they simply did not shoot the ball well enough from the outside to…

  8. NBA Playoffs: Heat complement their star power with depth, take Game 4

    May 25, 2011, 1:39 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The Chicago Bulls finished with a better regular-season record than the star-studded Miami Heat for two reasons: superior depth and better play in close games. On Tuesday night, the Heat flipped the script on the Bulls, and took a commanding 3-1 series lead thanks to superior depth and late-game execution. All season long, the Bulls…

  9. NBA Playoffs: Omer Asik will be active for Game 4

    May 24, 2011, 7:47 PM EDT

    Omer Asik

    According to Ethan J. Skolnick of the Palm Beach Post, Bulls backup center Omer Asik will be active in tonight’s Game 4 of the Bulls/Heat series. Asik suffered a sprained leg with 1:54 remaining of the third quarter in Game 3, and missed the remainder of the game. Asik’s defense, rebounding, and toughness made him…

  10. Quote of the Day: LeBron thinks the Thunder could have done some things better

    May 24, 2011, 7:38 PM EDT

    LeBron Sunglasses

    Before Game 4 of the Heat/Bulls series, Heat forward LeBron James was asked about Oklahoma City’s Game 4 collapse against the Dallas Mavericks last night, and he responded thusly: “I don’t want to sit here and be the coach of OKC but I seen a lot of things that could have been done better.” It’s…

  11. NBA Playoffs: Whole lotta Rose for Bulls, but they need more

    May 24, 2011, 4:01 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Three

    Derrick Rose is going to try and make Tuesday night his signature game. He has said he plans to come out and be much more aggressive attacking the Heat’s double team. It’s not that simple, and it will not be enough for the Bulls — they need more complete team effort on both ends of…

  12. Derrick Rose vows to be more aggressive in Game 4

    May 24, 2011, 10:20 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    For three games now, Derrick Rose has come off the top of the high screen and saw a line of defenders. Sometimes it’s a trap and a traditional double team. Sometimes its more of a soft double with the next guy just rotated over ready to come — the Heat have the athletes to come…

  13. Heat fans get on Barkley, he flips them off, idiocy ensues

    May 23, 2011, 8:06 PM EDT

    2010 NBA All-Star T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    I was on a talk radio show in Miami today, where they should be celebrating the fact that their team seems to be taking control of their series against the Bulls. And what was one of the big topics of the day? Charles Barkley flipping the bird to some Heat fans. I linked to the…

  14. Bulls need to space floor or things not going to change

    May 23, 2011, 12:41 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Derrick Rose had no room to operate. The minuscule gaps in defenses that he contorted his way through this season have disappeared the last couple games against the Heat. There is no room. Finally Carlos Boozer stepped up and gave the Bulls 26 points and 17 boards in Game 3. But that was not enough.…

  15. Carlos Boozer’s words motivated Chris Bosh, a little

    May 23, 2011, 11:53 AM EDT

    Chris Bosh

    Back before the series, Carlos Boozer said that the Miami Heat have two great players. Which was taken as a dig at Chris Bosh. Because it was. Chris Bosh finally addressed it after dropping 34 points on Boozer and the Bulls in Game 3 (he also dropped 30 in Game 1). Well he kind of…

  16. NBA Playoffs: Heat outclass the Bulls, take series lead

    May 23, 2011, 1:07 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Three

    Game 1 of the Bulls-Heat series was the kind of game the Bulls wanted to play — a physical slugfest that saw Chicago dominate the Heat by destroying them on the boards and keeping LeBron James and Dwyane Wade from being able to do too much damage. Game 2 was the kind of game that…

  17. Joakim Noah admits to using gay slur, apologizes

    May 23, 2011, 12:57 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game One

    UPDATE 12:57 am: After the game Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah admitted to using a gay slur against a fan and apologized for it, as reported by the Associated Press. “I apologize,” Noah told reporters. “The fan said something to me that I thought was disrespectful, and I got caught up in the moment, and…

  18. NBA Playoffs: Can Bulls find answers to Heat’s questions?

    May 23, 2011, 12:54 AM EDT

    Heat's James and Haslem celebrate a basket against the Bulls during Game 3 of their Eastern Conference Finals NBA basketball series in Miami

    LeBron James didn’t really get going as a scorer (holding him to 22 points is keeping them in check). Same with Dwyane Wade who had just 17 points. The Bulls grabbed 32.5 percent of their missed shots for offensive rebounds. The Bulls limited the Heat’s transition points. Carlos Boozer put up 26 points with 17…

  19. Derrick Rose and his history of Game 3s.

    May 21, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Sunday will mark Derrick Rose‘s fifth Game 3 of his career. As it’s kind of a pivotal game, and considering he played like MVPoo last game (“Get it?Bbecause he’s the MVP! It’s a pun! A humorous play on words that isn’t actually humorous! Let’s move on.”), it’s pretty important that Rose show up against the…

  20. Heat’s Haslem sits out practice Friday just as precaution

    May 20, 2011, 4:49 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's Udonis Haslem celebrates a basket against the Chicago Bulls during Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference Finals playoff basketball game in Chicago

    Udonis Haslem, the man off the bench that helped change the Heat’s fortunes in Game 2 and even the series, sat out practice Friday because of his surgically repaired foot. Relax Heat fans, it’s just precautionary. Deep breathes. Haslem stayed out of running drills, according to a tweet from our man Ira Winderman with the…

  21. Ring for LeBron could mean $4 billion for Nike in China

    May 19, 2011, 7:20 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    Right now, Kobe Bryant has made bigger inroads into the Chinese market than LeBron James. Part of that is relationships — Kobe was making an annual pilgrimage to China long before most NBA stars. He has his own separate charity there, part of giving back to that massive market. But it’s also about the rings.…

  22. Charles Barkley, Dwyane Wade having a little spat

    May 19, 2011, 2:52 PM EDT

    wadebarkley

    Charles Barkley and Dwyane Wade are not talking right now. Well, unless T-Mobile pays them to. Yahoo’s Kelly Dwyer tweeted this last night after the Heat evened their series against the Chicago Bulls. Overheard as I leave the UC. Dwyane Wade: “I’m not talking to you, man.” Charles Barkley: “What I do this time?” I…

  23. LeBron James is suddenly looking very clutch

    May 19, 2011, 12:05 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Fair or not, deserved or not, the national narrative on LeBron James has been that he wasn’t clutch. For all the games he took over, despite some impressive endings, the perception that he quit in Game 5 against the Celtics last season seemed the dominant memory for many. LeBron doesn’t have a ring. Kobe has…

  24. NBA Playoffs: Heat took the bloom off Derrick Rose

    May 19, 2011, 2:22 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Derrick Rose put up a 28-point game in the Bulls’ Game 1 victory and a 21-point game in their Game 2 loss on Wednesday. Those are good numbers. He remains the focal point of everything Chicago does on offense. But it has taken him 45 shots to get those 49 points. He is shooting 37.8…

  25. NBA Playoffs: Udonis Haslem is back. Miami just got better.

    May 19, 2011, 12:31 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's Udonis Haslem celebrates a basket against the Chicago Bulls during Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference Finals playoff basketball game in Chicago

    When the Heat roster was in upheaval this summer, clearing out cap space to chase a three-man dream team, Udonis Haslem was a free agent. A free agent drawing interest from around the league because every team could use a forward who will do the dirty work and can bury the midrange jumper. To show…
