Miami Heat

  1. In Dirk Nowitzki’s moment

    Jun 13, 2011, 3:41 AM EST

    Screen shot 2011-06-13 at 2.34.22 AM

    Dirk Nowitzki will never hear the end of the question. In the ensuing days, weeks, months, and even years, he’ll be posed the same inquiry over and over, so many times that his answer will grow repetitive but never robotic. The very thought will always invoke the same emotion he felt on this night, this…

  2. Dallas won the title, Miami didn’t lose it

    Jun 13, 2011, 3:15 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The story was not the Dallas Mavericks and their incredible shooting, it was the Lakers collapse. Then it was how the Thunder were not ready. Now, it was how the Miami Heat lacked discipline, could not execute at the end of games and how LeBron James faltered. That’s not what the story should be. The…

  3. Dan Gilbert, Mo Williams enjoy the Heat loss too much

    Jun 13, 2011, 1:51 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The wounds are not healed in Cleveland. And watching LeBron James and the Heat lose was cathartic for many in Ohio. Or people who used to be in Ohio. Or people who just felt burned by LeBron. Or actually most of America. That includes Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, he of the comic-sans LeBron rant from…

  4. NBA Playoffs: Heat’s lack of discipline ends their season

    Jun 13, 2011, 12:37 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The Miami Heat were the most talented team in the NBA this past season. They were two fourth-quarter collapses away from sweeping the NBA Finals. None of that matters after they lost Game 6 by a final score of 105-95, and the series by a final score of 4-2. Miami’s losses in Game 2 and…

  5. Dallas may have won last old-school title for while

    APTOPIX NBA Finals Mavericks Heat Basketball

    Dallas won it all. They earned it. They get the banner and the rings (if they do rings) and the bragging rights. They earned them. But everybody wants to be Miami. Not the fans. Outside of South Florida the Heat the Heat are despised, treated with the same venom usually reserved for politicians who text…

  6. Dallas Mavericks are your new NBA Champions

    Jun 12, 2011, 11:12 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Dallas was the best team. The Dallas Mavericks got contributions from their superstar Dirk Nowitzki, but they also got a huge game from Jason Terry, solid play from everyone — even Brian Cardinal and Ian Mahinmi in Game 6 — and they won 105-95 to take the NBA finals 4-2. Mark Cuban — who turned…

  7. Video: Heat, Mavericks talk about Game 6

    Jun 11, 2011, 8:12 PM EST

    LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

    This is “now or never” LeBron. A real now or never. Dallas enters Game 6 with a chance to end the series, while the Heat look to force a Game 7. Below is a video of guys from both teams looking ahead to Game 6. But wait, there’s more! For that same fantastic low price,…

  8. NBA finals: Miami will execute at the end of Game 6 or the season ends

    jason-terry-game-5

    One stat sums up why we are one more Mavericks win away from seeing David Stern hand the Larry O’Brien trophy over to Mark Cuban: In the final six minutes of Games 2 through 5, Dallas has outscored Miami 60-26. These have been incredibly close games, but with everything on the line Dallas and its veteran lineup…

  9. LeBron James is a little unsure of whether the pressure is getting to him

    Jun 11, 2011, 1:00 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    Let’s get right down to it, shall we? The Miami Herald asked LeBron James if the pressure was “getting to him” whatever that means. His answer was clear, decisive, forceful. And by that I mean it was none of those things: “No, I don’t think so,” James said. Self-correction. “I don’t believe so,” James said. One…

  10. Mark Cuban was right, depth mattered plenty

    Jun 10, 2011, 2:48 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is shown on the court before the start of play between the Mavericks and the Miami Heat in Game 3 of the NBA Finals basketball series in Dallas

    Time for some crow. I prefer mine braised with a nice port wine reduction, but nonetheless it is time to eat some. Back before the start of the season, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was talking about his team’s depth and how that was going to make things different this year. This is a really, really…

  11. Video: LeBron, Wade mock sick Dirk… it’s not a big deal

    Jun 10, 2011, 12:26 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    The NBA world is watching and talking about this video today, in the brilliant words of SBN’s Tom Ziller it is blowing up like a meth lab. So we bring it to you. This news broadcast below — taken BEFORE Game 5 — has video of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade walking out of the…

  12. History says Miami has a real chance to win this

    Jun 10, 2011, 11:27 AM EST

    Lebron James (6) of the Miami Heat makes

    The odds favor the Dallas Mavericks — up 3-2 they need to win just one of the final two games in Miami to win the first title in the franchise’s history. Plus, the way they have been executing at the end of games, they must be considered the favorites. But history says Miami has a…

  13. LeBron James was good, but we expect more of him

    Jun 10, 2011, 10:49 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    The Miami Heat did not lose Thursday night because of LeBron James. But they didn’t win because of him either. That is ultimately the challenge that lies before him — he cannot be merely good, not if he is to meet the expectations put upon him,  ones he encouraged and welcomed — he needs to be…

  14. Video: Jason Terry sticks in the dagger

    Jun 10, 2011, 8:50 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    On a night when there were hot shooters all over the court, Jason Terry was just ridiculous. He finished 8-of-12 shooting for 21 points. He was 5-of-9 from beyond 16 feet and he had key threes. But this is the one everyone will remember — the dagger three taken from roughly Fort Worth with a…

  15. NBA Playoffs: Miami’s defense lets them down

    Jun 10, 2011, 4:18 AM EST

    Dirk face on joel

    When something goes right for the Miami Heat in these playoffs, something else invariably goes wrong. When Wade is on his game, James seems to be off of it. When James and Bosh are making music on the pick-and-roll together, Wade seems to be stuck dribbling into traps and firing up ill-advised jumpers. When the…

  16. NBA Finals: Dallas tops Miami in Game 5 with an outlier, but what of it?

    Jun 10, 2011, 3:38 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    The Dallas Mavericks took a 3-2 series lead on Thursday night with a 112-103 win, but their tremendous offense — the propulsive force that allowed them to pull within a single victory of taking the NBA title — was immediately tagged as an outlier, and saddled with all of the negative stigma that statistical improbabilities…

  17. Dwyane Wade downplays hip injury, Spoelstra cautious

    Jun 10, 2011, 1:24 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    As you would expect, Dwyane Wade said the bruised hip (that’s what it is being called officially) he suffered in the first quarter of Game 5 wouldn’t matter come Sunday and a must-win Game 6 for Miami. “No problem, I’ll be good for Game 6,” Wade said in his post-game press conference, broadcast on NBA…

  18. Dwyane Wade leaves game with hip injury, returns, leaves again

    Jun 9, 2011, 10:26 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Four

    Dwyane Wade, the best Miami Heat player in the finals, left and went back to the locker room in the first quarter with a hip injury, but returned in the second quarter. He has played well but seems to be walking with a slight limp heading into halftime. He did not come out to start…

  19. LeBron says this is the biggest game of his career

    Jun 9, 2011, 5:50 PM EST

    LeBron James

    This is the biggest game in LeBron James career. It may only be that way for a few days, but right now it is. He gets it. That’s what he said at shootaround Thursday when asked about his “now or never” tweet, as reported by NBA.com’s Hangtime blog. “It was a personal message to myself,”…

  20. Charles Barkley still doesn’t like Heat, their fans

    Jun 9, 2011, 5:04 PM EST

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

    Charles Barkley may not want to buy a second home in the Miami area. There’s not a lot of love for him there, because he still has no love for the Miami Heat. And because he is Charles Barkley, he proclaims that from the mountaintops. Which is what he did on ESPN radio in Chicago…

  21. Miami’s real problem this series: Not enough high fives

    Jun 9, 2011, 3:16 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Four

    Back in early 2010, researchers at the prestigious University of California, Berkeley, did a study that showed teams that high fived and touched each other more won more games. Seriously. I mean seriously they looked at all the tape from the 08-09 NBA season and found the Lakers and Celtics touched the most, some bad…

  22. Don’t expect Brendan Haywood to play in Game 5

    Jun 9, 2011, 2:44 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Officially, Brendan Haywood is a game time decision for Game 5. Officially, I have a chance of getting a date with Minka Kelly. Both of these things have about the same chance of happening. Which is to say, don’t expect Brendan Haywood to play in Game 5 Thursday night for Dallas. Which is what Tim…

  23. Dwyane Wade thanks Dallas for trash talking LeBron

    Jun 9, 2011, 2:20 PM EST

    Dwyane Wade

    Jason Terry said LeBron James couldn’t guard him tightly for seven games. DeShawn Stevenson said LeBron “checked out” of Game 4. The Miami Heat heard all that. LeBron heard all that. Dwyane Wade told Dallas thank you for adding fuel to the fire under the best player walking the planet, as reported by Matt Moore…
