    Atlanta Hawks v Boston Celtics - Game Four

    Too often we take the Spurs and the beauty of how they play basketball for granted. We shouldn’t.

  4. Wade, Allen, Oden, Chalmers all out for Heat Friday vs. Pistons

    Mar 28, 2014, 6:45 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Four

    Is this the Miami Heat’s Los Angeles Lakers imitation? The Miami Heat will be without three starters — Dwyane Wade, Greg Oden and Mario Chalmers — plus sixth man Ray Allen for Friday night’s game in Detroit, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN. So if LeBron James didn’t think he was already carrying enough load……

    Miami Heat's Allen celebrates a three point shot against the Indiana Pacers during Game 7 of their NBA Eastern Conference final basketball playoff in Miami

    I don’t need to remind you that Ray Allen makes big plays for the Heat in big games. But he will not be taking part in Wednesday’s big showdown with Indiana. Ray Allen (stomach virus) did not participate in this morning’s shootaround and is listed as doubtful for tonight’s #HEATgame. — Miami HEAT (@MiamiHEAT) March…

  7. Kobe Bryant talks with Jim Buss, reiterates ‘selfish’ desire for Lakers to contend next two seasons

  10. Heat’s Spoelstra says Greg Oden’s move to starting lineup may be permanent

    Mar 18, 2014, 7:16 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat

    Miami won two titles going small, playing “space and pace” basketball. (Tell me again how Mike D’Antoni’s system can’t win a title, because this is that with elite players who are better on defenders.) However as this season has gone on the Heat have moved more and more toward a big lineup, with Chris Bosh…

  11. Heat execute in final minutes, Rockets still learning, fall in Miami

    Mar 16, 2014, 7:41 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Miami Heat

    Midway through the third quarter you had to like how the Rockets were playing against the Heat in Miami. Tied 92-92, the Rockets got what seemed like their 5,347th floater in the lane of the night, this time it was Chandler Parsons over Chris Andersen. The Rockets players did not fear the Heat shot blockers…

  12. Jermaine O’Neal treating this season like it’s his last

    Mar 4, 2014, 10:27 AM EST

    Houston Rockets v Golden State Warriors

    Jermaine O’Neal has spent three careers in the NBA. He entered the league as its youngest player – undercutting Kobe Bryant by a few months – and spent four seasons in Portland buried on the bench. Then, he went to Indiana and made six straight All-Star games, even finishing third in 2004 MVP voting. Afterward,…

  13. LeBron James’ 61-point game re-ignites MVP race with Kevin Durant

    Mar 4, 2014, 12:02 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat

    LeBron James could barely muster the strength to lift his head. He walked upcourt with his eyes to the ground, looked up to wave a dribbling Mario Chalmers ahead, and then dropped his eyes back to the court. The Miami Heat called timeout, and LeBron removed his facemask while dragging himself toward the bench. Spent…

  14. Dwyane Wade sitting out Bobcats game

    Mar 3, 2014, 7:22 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat

    Dwyane Wade hasn’t played more than six straight games in 2014, and that won’t change tonight. Wade has played in each of Miami’s last six contests, averaging 21.4 points on 62 percent shooting with 5.8 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game. If the Heat get this Wade in the playoffs, they’ll likely be…

  15. Masked man LeBron drops 31 powering Heat to easy win over Knicks

    Feb 28, 2014, 12:23 AM EST

    New York at Miami

    About that mask — a black carbon fiber one to protect his broken nose — impacting LeBron James’ shot… not so much. Call him Bane. Or Batman. Or the Phantom of the Opera. Or Hannibal Lector. To me LeBron looked like LeBron — he dropped 31 points (his fifth straight game over 30) on 13-of-19…

    J.J. Redick

    UPDATE: 9:08 pm: The Clippers have made it official, saying J.J. Redick is out “indefinitely with a bulging disc in his lower back.” While he certainly has a variety of injuries, it is the back that is the most serious. They still expect to have him back for the playoffs. 7:45 pm: This is pretty…

  18. Report: If you want Rajon Rondo or Jeff Green then Celtics want a lot in return

    This is exactly what Flip Saunders was talking about when he suggested this will be a slower than expected trade deadline because teams are not willing to part with picks in perceived good drafts. There is buzz out of Boston that GM Danny Ainge is shopping around just about everyone on the roster —Rajon Rondo…

  19. Heat start hot then hang on to beat Clippers

    Feb 6, 2014, 3:13 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Clippers

    This was a nationally televised against a top-four team in the West in the Clippers — these are the kind of games that shake the Heat out of their mid-season malaise. And when the Heat play like they did early Wednesday night it is a beautiful thing. Miami’s first quarter was as good as they…

  20. Miami Heat’s Super Bowl party at Ray Allen’s house was probably better than yours

    Feb 3, 2014, 12:23 PM EST

    Miami Heat Media Day

    When the Super Bowl is a blowout, as this year’s Seahawks’ win certainly was from the opening safety, what really matters is how good the Super Bowl party you’re at turns out to be. Looks like the one Ray Allen threw for his Miami Heat teammates was better than the one you were at. LeBron James…

    Jordan Brand has always had a huge retail footprint (pun intended), but had yet to open specialized individual retail stores of its own — at least until now.

  22. The Extra Pass: Which non-All-Stars will make an All-NBA team?

    Jan 31, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    New Orleans Pelicans vs Miami Heat

    All-Star selections have become the de facto measure of good seasons, even though they’re really only the measure of good half seasons and rely on a gerrymandered system that splits players by conference. But All-NBA teams – which evaluate a full year and aren’t split by conference – are a better metric for good seasons. In the last…

  23. What malaise? Chris Bosh, Miami look sharp in blowout win over Spurs

    Jan 26, 2014, 3:29 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers vs Miami Heat

    Miami just needed a challenge, apparently. The Heat had coasted through the last few weeks, still winning some games but not looking sharp, looking like a team that was bored with the season. Like a team a little tired and just waiting for the playoffs. Then the Spurs came to town and Miami woke up…

  24. Dwyane Wade out for third straight game Tuesday for Heat

    Jan 21, 2014, 8:02 PM EST

    d wade

    When Dwyane Wade has played this season he has played well — 18.9 points a game with a True Shooting percentage of 58 percent, plus he gets almost five rebounds and five assists a game. He deserves to be an All-Star (you fans are voting him in as a starter). But he’s missed about a…
