  1. NBA Playoffs: Heat will close out tonight or regret it Sunday

    Apr 27, 2011, 5:15 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat - Game Two

    The Miami Heat are going to close out this series tonight. Sure, in theory in one game anything can happen (the NCAA bases a whole basketball tournament around that theory). Even Burnie (the Heat mascot you didn’t know had a name) will admit this Heat team is fully capable of playing a lazy, terrible game…

  2. Sixers’ Iguodala’s knee pain has been worse than he’s let on

    Apr 27, 2011, 12:26 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Four

    Andre Iguodala has struggled through the playoffs. The most explosive wing player on Philadelphia has shot just 31.6 percent overall and 25 percent from three. He is averaging only 8.8 points per game. He has looked like a shell of the guy who won gold with Team USA in Turkey last summer. That guy looked…

  3. 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…

  4. Video: Lou Williams dagger three to beat Heat

    Apr 25, 2011, 9:30 AM EDT

    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…

  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. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…
