Miami Heat

  1. Magic Johnson says that Miami is responsible for Los Angeles’ dominant start

    Nov 10, 2010, 6:50 PM EDT

    Lakers_Barnes_defense

    The Miami Heat have had their ups and downs over the first eight regular-season games, but at least they can take some credit for the Los Angeles Lakers’ absolute dominance in the early part of the NBA season. That probably wouldn’t cheer Miami up, of course, but Magic Johnson says it’s the truth: Magic Johnson…

  2. Now even Miami hotels have NBA fever

    Nov 10, 2010, 11:26 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets Behind the Scenes

    NBA teams have been coming to Miami since 1988. It’s a favorite stop for many of the players because… well, if I have to explain that to you then you were never 22. It’s Miami, we’ll leave it at that. But now, everybody there cares about the NBA. Even the hotels. Okay, the hotels only…

  3. Game of the night: Paul Millsap goes Reggie Miller and the Jazz beat the Heat

    Nov 10, 2010, 2:10 AM EDT

    LeBron James, C.J. Miles

    It is still one of the greatest basketball highlights out there — Reggie Miller scoring eight points in nine seconds against the Knicks. Paul Millsap kind of looked like Reggie at the end of regulation in the Jazz’s Monday night’s game against the Heat — a much, much thicker version of Miller, but the unbelievable…

  4. Avery Johnson just wants someone, anyone to be aggressive

    Nov 9, 2010, 1:50 PM EDT

    We’ve picked up on a subtle theme in Avery Johnson’s talks to his team. Subtle like an Oliver Stone movie or a Metallica guitar riff. First he ripped the Nets as being basically tissue paper as they watched the tape of the team getting destroyed by the Heat (the day after they lost to the…

  5. What’s going on with the Heat offense?

    Nov 9, 2010, 10:15 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    The 5-2 Miami Heat are certainly not a bad offensive team. In fact, they are a very good offensive team — as of today, they are 5th in the NBA in offensive efficiency. Considering how good the Heat have been defensively (they’re #1 in defensive efficiency), Miami could certainly make a championship run without significantly…

  6. Winderman: “Respect for the Game” not easy to define, even for LeBron, Terrence Williams

    Nov 8, 2010, 7:41 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    While much has been made of the NBA’s crackdown on “respect for the game,” with the league’s whistle-blowing onslaught of technical fouls, the sought-after upgrade in decorum is actually more about respect for referees. But what exactly is respect for the game? Is it sideshow antics during games that seemingly make players bigger than their…

  7. LeBron says Heat are not showboating. Really? They should do more.

    Nov 8, 2010, 3:54 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    It’s certainly a show when the Miami Heat come to town — a high-flying acrobatic circus of shots and athleticism. Which has led a few to suggest that the Heat are about the show more than anything. That they are showing off. LeBron James will have none of that, as he told the Ira Winderman…

  8. NBA Power Rankings, where the Hornets are all the buzz

    Nov 8, 2010, 1:07 PM EDT

    CPaul-layup

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, where we are starting to believe in the Hornets but not the Hawks. Oh, and just bench Baron Davis. 1. Lakers (7-0). Best offense in the NBA so far, defense is solid (10th in league in defensive points given up per possession) and all that without Andrew Bynum. The schedule…

  9. Chris Bosh: “I get a little lost out there.”

    Nov 8, 2010, 10:20 AM EDT

    Bosh_Murphy

    It’s a process. An adjustment. There are moments that make you forget that Miami has really only been playing together for a few weeks, that they are still growing and learning. But they are 4-2 because they are still learning, because there are nights where it does not all click. And the guy it is…

  10. LeBron James: Still not making friends

    Nov 7, 2010, 10:37 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    LeBron James is already a polarizing figure. He was becoming one prior to “The Decision,” and then his little TV special pushed things to a different stratosphere. But it’s not just those big events, or his Game 5 meltdown, or not shaking hands with the Magic after the Cavs’ 2009 elimination, or Kobe Bryant fans’…

  11. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade alley-oop for fun and games

    Nov 7, 2010, 12:10 AM EDT

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/vEPUpl36J6Q?version=3" height="205" width="320" /]

    Going to see a lot of this for the next, oh, five or six years. When you have multiple all-world athletes on your team, things like this are going to happen. Behold! The totally unnecessary but awesome looking alley-oop! Yeah, that’s pretty ridiculous. It’s also fairly indicative of the Heat and their attitude. Magic’s Showtime…

  12. Game of the Night: Where CP3 was better than the Big Three

    Nov 6, 2010, 2:18 AM EDT

    CPaul_Heat

    Most Saturdays you’re not going to get a Game of the Night, because that could make us work on a Friday night rather than enjoy another Guinness. But there were so many notes on my plate from the Hornets beating the Heat that it cried out for the space. On that note, I put down…

  13. Cleveland tells LeBron what he should do: “Be who you said you’d be.”

    Nov 5, 2010, 1:20 PM EDT

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/NvgD9HNTMkM?fs=1&hl=en_US" height="205" width="320" /]

    LeBron had to know this was coming, because: 1) He asked a question without answering it; 2) Clevelanders are still bitter. So here you go, the people of Cleveland respond to LeBron’s Rise ad.

  14. Heat fly jerk…er, fan down to Miami for a game…or not

    Nov 4, 2010, 11:30 PM EDT

    Image (1) heat_LeBron_jersey-thumb-250x151-16928.jpg for post 3379

    UPDATE 11:30 pm: The Miami Heat have changed their mind. Matthew Bellamy is not going to a Heat game unless he pays his own way. Here is the team statement, via The Heat Index: “An invitation was prematurely extended to [Bellamy] prior to the approval process being completed,” according to a Heat team statement released…

  15. The unexpectedly expected rise of Dorell Wright

    Nov 4, 2010, 6:17 PM EDT

    Dorell Wright

    If you had Dorell Wright pegged as a 20-point scorer or the league leader in three-pointers made a week into the season, I’d politely ask that you step toward the stake surrounded by kindling. We don’t take kindly to witches and soothsayers around here. In retrospect, though, it makes complete sense. Maybe not Wright’s .545…

  16. LeBron James misses practice with shin bruise

    Nov 4, 2010, 2:58 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    According to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com, Heat forward LeBron James did not participate in Thursday’s practice because of a shin bruise James suffered while the Heat were playing the Nets last Sunday: LeBron James sat out the Miami Heat’s practice Thursday with what he calls a deep right shin bruise. But coach Erik Spoelstra plans…

  17. Isiah Thomas to the Heat: embrace the hate

    Nov 3, 2010, 6:24 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    Hating the Miami Heat has almost become the biggest bandwagon of the NBA season. Not that there isn’t some real venom for the Heat — and LeBron James in particular, but it seems more trendy than genuine for many. Still, it’s out there. And if the Heat want the advice of former Detroit Bad Boy…

  18. On the pseudo-campaigning for LeBron James as Defensive Player of the Year

    Nov 3, 2010, 5:12 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    The media megaphone gives NBA players, coaches, front office officials, and owners a chance to call and respond. We’ve seen players poke at one another both jokingly and pointedly, coaches attempt to jar their players, opponents take shots from across the wall, and almost every conceivable combination of parties make comments of every ilk. In…

  19. Baseline to Baseline (your game recaps): Where the Lakers, Heat and Celtics dominate.

    What you missed while you were watching the election results roll in, then drinking to celebrate or drown your sorrows… Sixers at the Wizards — better known as No. 1 John Wall vs. No. 2 Evan Turner — was our game of the night, get the details here. Magic at the Knicks was postponed due…

  20. LeBron ready for revenge on Tolliver for spoof; Tolliver somehow surprised

    Nov 1, 2010, 6:31 PM EDT

    Tolliver_wolves

    Tuesday night, the Miami Heat will destroy the Minnesota Timberwolves. At least that’s the expectation. And LeBron James will get to check off one name on his revenge list — Anthony Tolliver. That’s what he’s saying, Tolliver is surprised by all this. Here’s the backstory. You probably remember a little something in July where James…

  21. NBA Power Rankings, where the top still looks like last year’s finals

    Nov 1, 2010, 2:31 PM EDT

    Bryant_Gasol_high5

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, where nothing confuses us more than the Suns playing at the 20th fastest pace in the league. 1. Lakers (3-0). Lamar Odom and Pau Gasol have been the best front line in basketball through the first week. Kobe’s knee isn’t right, but it hasn’t mattered yet. Oh, and we told…

  22. Dwyane Wade as Justin Timberlake and other NBA Halloween stories

    Nov 1, 2010, 10:59 AM EDT

    Wade_Timberlake

    Oh social media, how you bring us photos we would never have otherwise seen. We love you for that. For example, there is Dwyane Wade going whiteface Justin Timberlake to his Halloween bash in Miami. If that costume comes with Jessica Beal, then it is brilliant and not at all creepy. We also can check…

  23. Game of the Weekend: The Heat are starting to figure it out.

    Oct 31, 2010, 5:25 PM EDT

    James_chalk

    The takeaway from the Miami Heat’s throttling of the Nets is not that the Heat cruised to a 101-78 win. Some version of that is going to happen a lot this season. The takeaway is that the Heat are getting better. They are figuring out what works, they are correcting their mistakes. The fact they…

  24. LeBron reiterates: “I think I would do it a little different.”

    Oct 31, 2010, 3:40 PM EDT

    jamespreseason

    He’s said this before, it’s ground we’ve covered. But because today he and the Heat were in New Jersey — game one of the “We were scored by LeBron James tour” 2010 — it came up again. Would LeBron handle things differently? Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel had his answer. “If I had a…

  25. Report: Miami to try to trade for point guard

    Oct 31, 2010, 9:40 AM EDT

    Image (1) PRiley-thumb-250x166-15809.jpg for post 3125

    A few games in and the Miami offense has sputtered. When they get out and run they are unstoppable, but in the half court they can be stopped. Pat Riley thinks they need another shooter (especially with Mike Miller out until after the calendar turns to 2011), so he is going to try to trade…
