Miami Heat

  1. Are the Miami Heat clutch? Not by the numbers.

    Apr 25, 2011, 11:28 AM EDT

    Miami Heat forward James reacts on the bench while playing against the 76ers in the second  quarter during Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff series in Philadelphia

    The real test for the Miami Heat is coming. No, not Tuesday night, they will destroy the Sixers in that game. We’re talking next weekend, when they will take on Boston in round two. Or the conference semi-finals. Or when the playoffs really get serious. Whatever you want to call it. There are going to…

  2. Video: Lou Williams dagger three to beat Heat

    Miami Heat v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Three

    This may have been the pinnacle of the Philadelphia season. This is a pretty good team overmatched in the first round, but on Sunday they were the team that executed better with the game on the line. Dwyane Wade and LeBron James were missing shots and defending poorly while Jrue Holiday and Lou Williams were…

  3. Marriage license says Chris Bosh tied the knot, he denies it

    Apr 25, 2011, 8:50 AM EDT

    Chris Bosh

    My experience with marriage has suggested that denying you are married does not go over well with your wife. Actually, suggested is the wrong word. Made unquestionably clear may be a better phrasing there. Based on that, I feel for Chris Bosh. Friend of the blog Ira Winderman and the Sun-Sentinel searched marriage records in…

  4. NBA Playoffs: Philly earns itself one more game this season. One.

    Apr 24, 2011, 6:15 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Four

    If you believed in conspiracy theories, you could say that Miami is going to make a lot of extra money out of the extra home date for a Game 5 Tuesday. We’re not that guy. We think Miami came out flat as a lot of teams do up 3-0 and let the Philadelphia hang around…

  5. NBA Playoffs: 76ers playing for pride, Heat for days off

    Apr 24, 2011, 11:29 AM EDT

    Miami Heat shooting guard Wade and James speak during the second half of Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff series in Miami

    This series has played out exactly like the regular season for the Miami Heat. They overwhelmed lesser teams where they had more talent, the real tests were against the other elite teams where they struggled at times. The Heat have simply overwhelmed the Philadelphia 76ers on their way to a 3-0 series lead, but the…

  6. It’s not a joke setup, LeBron drinks a gallon of water a day during playoffs

    Apr 22, 2011, 1:27 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Three

    I’m not going to do it. You insert your own jokes about LeBron James urinating during this post. I will not take part in your juvenile game. Much. During these playoffs, as he has done for years during the playoffs, LeBron James strives to drink a gallon of water a day. So you know what…

  7. Note to Bulls, Heat fans: First round sweeps don’t mean rings

    Apr 22, 2011, 12:50 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Chicago Bulls

    Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls fans are pretty cocky today — their teams are on the verge of getting first round sweeps. That means extra rest, players can sit home and watch opposing playoff games and be annoyed by the NBA talking ball ads just like the rest of us. It just means more time…

  8. Video: LeBron James stumbling, bumbling assist to Wade

    Apr 22, 2011, 9:07 AM EDT

    Miami Heat forward James grimaces on the floor while playing against Philadelphia 76ers in Philadelphia

    There are no style points in the NBA. It’s wins and losses, it’s results. And at the end of the day this is an assist for LeBron James and two points for Dwyane Wade that the team needed in going up 3-0 on the Philadelphia 76ers. Whether or not James is stumbling, it’s still pretty…

  9. NBA Playoffs: Miami rebounds stop Sixers from rebounding

    Apr 21, 2011, 11:59 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers loss

    The NBA playoffs are a game of adjustments. After two games of getting burned by Chris Bosh and LeBron James, Philadelphia coach Doug Collins turned up the defensive pressure by bringing more help over to the strong side (where the ball is) faster. The 76ers tried hard to stop whichever of Miami’s triad had the…

  10. NBA Playoffs: Now or never for 76ers in Game 3

    Apr 21, 2011, 5:49 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat - Game Two

    The Philadelphia 76ers are a pretty good team who could pose a threat to some upper echelon Eastern Conference teams in the first round. Miami is not one of them. The Sixers lack the ability to pound the Heat inside where they are soft. Philly also relies on getting out and running a little, getting…

  11. Heat’s Chris Bosh looks like a beast in the middle. For now.

    Apr 19, 2011, 12:02 PM EDT

    Miami Heat Bosh shoots under pressure from Philadelphia 76ers Battie and Young in the second half during Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff series in Miami

    Chris Bosh would like to play the Philadelphia 76ers every game, if you please. Remember back when Chris Bosh signed with the Heat, between all the LeBron James fawning there was Bosh saying that he wanted to play power forward, not center. They needed to go out and get a real center. And the Heat…

  12. Video: LeBron James, Miami Heat putting on a little show for fans

    Apr 19, 2011, 8:49 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat - Game Two

    The Philadelphia 76ers have a problem — they really need to get out and run and get some easy buckets in transition to stand a chance in this series, but the Heat are more comfortable and just flat out better at an uptempo game. It’s a Catch-22 for them. As evidence, we bring you LeBron…

  13. “White Chocolate” Jason Williams calls it a career

    Apr 19, 2011, 8:15 AM EDT

    DeJuan Blair, George Hill, Jason Williams

    Few guys had a career that involved as much transformation as Jason Williams. He was a high school teammate of Randy Moss who was suspended and eventually kicked off his college team at Florida. He entered the NBA all flash — ridiculous passes (like the legendary elbow pass from the Rookie Game) and wild moves,…

  14. NBA Playoffs: Heat crush Sixers, leave no doubt in Game 2

    Apr 18, 2011, 11:01 PM EDT

    wade-game-2

    In Game 1 against the Heat, the Sixers jumped out to a 14-point second-quarter lead, before coming back furiously from a 16-point deficit late in the fourth to have a chance to steal one in Miami. In Game 2, however, there was no such fight. Philadelphia’s shaky offense came back to the mean, and couldn’t…

  15. NBA Playoffs: Can Philly do more than keep it close in Miami?

    Apr 18, 2011, 5:43 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James gestures after being fouled in NBA basketball playoff action against the Philadelphia 76ers in Miami

    Prediction: LeBron James is going to break out in Game 2. LeBron had a quiet 21 points in Game 1, but was just 4-of-14 shooting. He was more passive than normal, early on in the game he was patiently waiting for the double team to come so he could pass out of it. Don’t expect…

  16. Wade at shootaround, expected to play in Game 2 Monday

    Apr 18, 2011, 11:59 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade

    After Dwyane Wade missed Sunday’s practice due to a migraine headache, there were questions about if he would play in Game 2 Monday. Yes he is, according to a tweet from our man Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel. Dwyane Wade at shootaround today, so it looks like a go tonight despite the migraine, but…

  17. Heat’s Wade misses practice with migraine, questionable for Game 2

    Apr 17, 2011, 11:28 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Jersey Nets

    There was mocking by teammates and rulings from the league office when Dwyane Wade played a few games with sunglasses this season. But those glasses were there for a reason — Wade suffers from migraines and bright lights can trigger or aggravate it. The kind of bright lights Wade plays under in the NBA. Now…

  18. NBA playoff odds: Lakers, Heat are favorites. Of course.

    Apr 15, 2011, 6:59 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    Here’s the thing to remember about gambling odds — it’s not about who the odds makers really think has the best chance, it’s about keeping money evenly spread around so the house doesn’t lose money. Meaning the favorite on the betting line is really about that being the team bet the most so the book…

    Heat James and Wade celebrate with their team from the bench against the Raptors during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    Goodbye and good luck, Joe Tait. More than Cleveland will miss you. As the minutes of the big three go up in Miami in the playoffs, who gets squeezed out? The cost of playoff tickets in New York is insane. But then again, the cost of everything in New York is insane. San Diego State’s Kawhi Leonard…

  20. How they win it all — path to the ring for the top seeds

    Apr 14, 2011, 9:22 PM EDT

    Lakers Ring Ceremony Basketball

    Boston’s Glen Davis has a great name for it: The Campaign for Champagne. This year more than any other in recent memory, the path to the championship seems open for a number of teams. The Lakers have the last two titles, but they are flawed, inconsistent and often bored. Boston and San Antonio are old, Chicago and…

  21. Chris Bosh sees Boston as tougher test than Chicago

    Apr 14, 2011, 4:43 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    Chris Bosh is not alone on this. As we started talking to people around the league in preparation for playoff previews, there are a lot of doubters about the Bulls. Oh, they’re good and everyone knows it. But a lot of people think the Bulls have some things to learn about playoff basketball. Things the…

    Apr 14, 2011, 10:42 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Media Day

    There is going to be a first-round upset. One of the top four seeds somewhere — probably in the deep Western Conference, but Boston may be a little nervous — is going to get beat. To help you better understand what is about to happen this weekend, we present ProBasketballTalk’s NBA Playoff previews for the…

  23. How they can win it all: The Miami Heat

    Apr 14, 2011, 10:40 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    Forget the narrative. Forget the plot that turned LeBron James into a villain for changing zip codes, forget the half-baked media criticism without warrant, and forget the lazy reactions to Miami’s relative struggles at various points in the season. This Heat team is positively fantastic, and though they don’t come to the playoffs without flaws,…

  24. NBA Playoff Preview: Miami vs. Philadelphia

    Apr 14, 2011, 3:58 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    SEASON RECORDS Heat:  58-24 (No. 2 seed) 76ers: 41-41  (No. 7 seed) SEASON SERIES Miami swept the season series, winning all three contests by an average of just over 10 points per game. If there’s a bright side for the Sixers, it’s that two of the three meetings came very early in the season, before…

  25. Season’s wild final night shows why playoffs will be must-watch

    Apr 14, 2011, 2:11 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Lakers

    It was the last game on the last night of the regular season — and nobody wanted it to end. Not the  fans in Sacramento, who were loud and would not leave at the end of a wild game. Wild in every way — the shots were wild, the setting was wild,  that this last…
