Miami Heat

  1. Mike Miller could return to Heat lineup sooner than you think

    Dec 17, 2010, 12:22 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    Mike Miller will not be launching threes for the Miami Heat tonight in Madison Square Garden — which is good for New York, the Knicks have enough matchup problems with the Heat without Miller in the mix. But he could play — Miller said at shootaround today that he is well enough to go, according…

  2. New York tabloids welcome LeBron with all the love you’d expect

    Dec 17, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Daily_News_LeBron

    Maybe the only thing worse than a woman scorned is a New York tabloid headline writer scorned. And make no mistake, New York feels scorned by LeBron. They thought he could choose nowhere else because, hey — they’re New York. It’s inconceivable you would choose warm weather and other superstars over New York. Tonight LeBron…

  3. Winderman: Stoudemire vs. Bosh moves from free agency to Madison Square Garden

    665671776

    We’re not sure if Friday’s Heat-Knicks game will match Wednesday’s Celtics-Knicks for drama. But the matchup already has presented Miami and New York with a win-win situation. The Knicks have their singular star in Amare Stoudemire. The Heat have their complete complement in Chris Bosh. Although this will be the first time the power forwards…

  4. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Cleveland played better against the Heat. That counts for something.

    Dec 16, 2010, 8:45 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Miami Heat

    What you missed while wondering if snails can glow in the dark… Amar’e Stoudemire being .02 late and the Celtics winning in MSG is our game of the night. Heat 101, Cavaliers 95: It was the first meeting with the Heat that seemed to throw Cleveland into a funk. This game against the Heat seemed…

  5. LeBron James from behind the backboard

    Dec 14, 2010, 8:25 AM EDT

    James_tired

    Usually when someone hits this shot they hand the ball to their opponent and taunt him with “you’ve got H.” Because when else are you taking this shot other than a game of H-O-R-S-E? Things are different for LeBron James, who hits it with the clock running down in the middle of  a tight game.…

  6. Game of the night: A tale of two halves, and the Heat won the last one

    Dec 14, 2010, 3:20 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Miami Heat

    Two such different halves (well, really more like 32 minutes and 16 minutes rather than even halves). One where the Heat fell right into the Hornets’ well-executed game plan. One part where the Heat stopped playing along, the Hornets started missing shots and then it was on for Miami. The 16 trumped the 32 and…

  7. NBA Power Rankings: There are some long winning streaks out there

    Dec 13, 2010, 1:15 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Terry, Dallas Mavericks

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, where if it were a seven-game series we’d take any of the next three teams below Dallas to come out on top, but when you win 12 in a row you get to keep the top spot. 1. Mavericks (19-4). They’ve won an even dozen in a row now. In…

  8. Baseline to Baseline Weekend Edition: The hits just keep on coming

    Dec 13, 2010, 9:34 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    What happened while you were falling backwards into the endzone…. Friday Bulls 88 Lakers 84: I’m just saying. At some point, maybe, if the Lakers are in a one-possession game with less than 40 seconds remaining, two-for-one or no, maybe the Lakers should work for a quality shot instead of giving Kobe Bryant the ball…

  9. Saturday Starting Five: First quarter LVPs

    Dec 11, 2010, 9:55 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Miami Heat

    Our first quarter is over, so it’s time for that time honored cliche, first quarter MVPs, which usually have nothing to do with four-quarter MVPs. But instead, for our Saturday Starting Five, we’ll be covering those players who haven’t lived up to what their teams have needed, or paid, them to be. Sure, there are…

  10. Not so much with the Mike Miller and the returning by Christmas

    Dec 11, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    Mike Miller had hopes of returning by Christmas in order to try and help the Heat with the Lakers. Even with the Heat playing better, there’s a significant need for Miller to get back on the floor. He’s a more reliable shooter, ball-handler, and defender than James Jones or Eddie House, and when the Heat…

  11. Who’s laughing at Erik Spoelstra now?

    Dec 11, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Miami Heat

    Three weeks ago we were eating turkey, watching the Lions lose (again), and making up our own favorite “Sure, Pat Riley isn’t taking over this team and (fill in the blank)” joke. The Heat were a mini-disaster and there were rampant rumors that his job was on the line. The entire time Spoelstra stayed calm…

  12. Canada’s love/hate relationship with the Heat

    Dec 10, 2010, 9:16 PM EDT

    Image (1) bosh-heat-thumb-250x140-17979.jpg for post 3618

    Chris Bosh is not loved in Toronto. At all. He left the Toronto Raptors cold and the feelings north of the border match it. I mean, check this out. It’s not quite in the “LeBron is not loved in Cleveland” category of outright hated, but that is just because Canadians are too nice. Canadians love…

  13. Heat stealing offensive sets from the Lakers, Celtics

    Dec 10, 2010, 8:40 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    During those dark, ugly games at the start of the season the Miami Heat offense seemed more like taking turns than some kind of actual offensive sets your high school coach would be proud of. Now that they are winning… there is still a lot of simple sets. Against Utah the other night there was…

  14. Mark Cuban calls the Heat the best team in the league

    Dec 9, 2010, 10:00 PM EDT

    Image (1) cuban-thumb-250x166-11958.jpg for post 2059

    The Dallas Mavericks have won 10 in a row. They have the second best record in the whole of the NBA, trailing only the Spurs — and Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said recently the Mavericks were probably the best team in the league right now. Both Dallas’ offense and defense are in the top 10…

  15. Jerry Sloan has Erik Spoelstra’s back

    Dec 9, 2010, 1:49 PM EDT

    CSKA Moscow v Miami Heat

    Just a couple weeks ago there was everything but a countdown clock for when Pat Riley was going to come down from on high and tell Erik Spoelstra to go spend more time with his family. Or, go get a wife and family to spend time with. Either way, get out. Now, six wins later…

  16. LeBron now owns a mansion in Miami, with the wine cellar he always wanted

    Dec 9, 2010, 11:33 AM EDT

    Screen shot 2010-12-09 at 8.23.47 AM

    I don’t know about the rest of you, but when I was spending $9 million on a house I wanted to make sure it had a wine cellar and a place to park my yachts. Plural. Check and check. LeBron James new home in the Coconut Grove area has all that, according to the Miami…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Miami beat a good team handily… watch out

    Dec 9, 2010, 6:39 AM EDT

    dwyane-wade-1210-600

    What you missed while reading the Incredible Hulk Buddhist twitter timeline… Heat 111, Jazz 98: When LeBron James is the ball handler attacking the rim and Zydrunas Ilgauskas is setting the picks and knocking down the pick-and-pop jumpers, it is going to be tough to defend. Together they were 19-30 for 49 points. Wade had…

  18. Jerry Sloan’s old-school thoughts on Miami’s trio

    Dec 7, 2010, 4:14 PM EDT

    Image (1) nba_sloan.jpg for post 1640

    Utah coach Jerry Sloan is decidedly old school. Not like Run DMC is old school, I mean more like Sinatra old school Tough minded. Loyal. Movement off the ball not just isolation plays. No free layups. All of that in a good way. But that means sometimes he doesn’t mix as well with the new…

  19. Cleveland fans chant “traitor” at LeBron in Miami Restaurant

    Dec 7, 2010, 11:43 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks

    After the Miami Heat beat the Atlanta Hawks for a fourth straight win Saturday, LeBron James and his best friend and manager Maverick Carter went out for dinner at Myles Chefetz’s Prime Italian in Miami. A regular Saturday night. Well, it would have been except that also in the restaurant were about 30 Cleveland Brown…

  20. LeBron compares his situation with Brett Favre, Packers. Of course he does.

    Dec 6, 2010, 11:45 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    Wasn’t it inevitable that the LeBron James and Brett Favre story lines would merge? Before the Heat took on the Bucks Monday night in Milwaukee, James was asked if he could relate to what Favre went through with his bitter departure from the Packers, and the Associated Press has his answer. “Brett (had) great years…

  21. Heat’s struggles against good teams meaningless come playoffs

    Dec 6, 2010, 11:40 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks

    At some point, the Miami Heat are going to have to consistently beat very good teams to reach their goal. That point is in May. Nearly six months from now. Right now, the Heat’s much publicized 3-7 record against teams over .500 is pretty meaningless as a predictor of future success. The Heat team that…

  22. LeBron James, Daniel Gibson still BFFs, or something

    Dec 5, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Cleveland Cavaliers

    After the Heat were done wiping the floor with the Cleveland Cavaliers Thursday night, some things were said. Daniel Gibson used to be tight with LeBron James but he said some things afterwards that made it sound like they wouldn’t be sharing any text messages about the latest episode of Glee, or whatever it is…

  23. Heat grants 8-year-old boy belated birthday wish

    Dec 4, 2010, 7:46 PM EDT

    LeBron James,  Dwayne Wade, Joel Anthony, Chris Bosh, Carlos Arroyo

    Christian Lambert is one happy boy tonight. Lambert for his eighth birthday gift didn’t want the Lego Star Wars for Wii (which is crazy, I want that) — he wanted to go see the Miami Heat play. So his parents splurged and bought him tickets to go see the Heat take on the Orlando Magic…

  24. Buy Shawn Marion’s house, get Super Bowl tickets.

    The housing market is still slumping. If you’re going to sell your home in this market, you’re going to have to have some kind of incentive. Like Super Bowl tickets. Buy Shawn Marion’s former home in Florida and that is just what you get, according to FanHouse. Marion is offering four club-level Super Bowl tickets…

  25. LeBron, Cavaliers in-game talk not so friendly

    Dec 3, 2010, 8:51 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Cleveland Cavaliers

    A chorus of people — led by Charles Barkley — questioned what looked like some friendly banter between the LeBron James and the Cavaliers bench Thursday night. For the most part, people have questioned how the Cavs could joke around with the guy kicking their, um, behind. But apparently it wasn’t that friendly. As Daniel…
