    Chemistry is important, and the Heat use the Pacers’ dealing of Granger — and the horrific results since — as justification for keeping Udonis Haslem.

  13. PBT Power Rankings: Spurs running away at top, but a new team in cellar

    Mar 31, 2014, 1:00 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan

    The Sixers win! The Sixers win! That was enough to move them out of the bottom spot of the PBT Power rankings for a week… which since they are not getting relegated is about the only excitement at the bottom of the table. At the top it is San Antonio then everybody else right now.…

  14. Shane Battier states in more certain terms that he’ll be retiring after this season

  15. Interesting stat: Teams score better in crunch time when they don’t call timeout

    Mar 13, 2014, 4:09 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    Coaches are micromanagers almost by nature. They want control, they want to set things up. So in crunch time, when their team needs a bucket, they almost inevitably call a timeout to set up a play. Of course, that also lets the defense make substitutions and set themselves up as well, but coaches want that…

  16. Paul Pierce’s move to power forward adds twist to his career, Brooklyn Nets’ season

    BOSTON – On Paul Pierce’s first defensive possession as the Brooklyn Nets’ full-time starting power forward, Serge Ibaka backed him down on the block. Pierce bodied Ibaka, keeping him out of the paint, and Ibaka threw the ball away. On the Oklahoma City Thunder’s next possession, Ibaka posted up Pierce again. Pierce hardly yielded an…

  17. Chris Bosh says if NBA wants to ban slurs on court it has to ban them all

    Feb 27, 2014, 12:46 PM EDT

    Detroit at Miami

    I’m not sure how you can really regulate “smack talk” on basketball court or a football field or any other sporting venue. It’s not that lines of basic human decency are not crossed verbally all the time — they are — and when that happens there should be something for referees to fall back on…

  18. D-League to start calling technical for flopping in game, see if that works

    Feb 19, 2014, 1:25 PM EDT

    Josh Smith, Paul Pierce, flop

    The D-League is where the NBA likes to try out rule changes first to see how they work. For example, this season the D-League uses quicker timeouts and is using the international goaltending rule (once the ball hits the rim it is live and can be knocked off). Now the D-League is going to try…

    Miami Heat player Chris Bosh speaks to the media before a team practice ahead of Game 2 of the NBA Finals basketball playoff against the San Antonio Spurs in Miami

    That is Chris Bosh singing Tom Jones’ “It’s not unusual” while breaking out the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Carlton Dance. That is why Chris Bosh is awesome (that and he’s a better basketball player than most of you seem to give him credit for, but that’s another post for another day). It’s may favorite thing…

  20. Shane Battier memorializes grandmother with ‘Battle’ nickname jersey

    Jan 19, 2014, 8:00 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs vs Miami Heat

    Shane Battier doesn’t have a  well-established nickname, though I guess “Batman” comes closest. So, when Battier learned the Miami Heat would wear nickname jerseys a few times this season, he was stuck. Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press: Miami forward Shane Battier – who wasn’t exactly thrilled about the nickname idea – said he wanted…

  21. LeBron admits quest for three-peat wearing down Heat

    Jan 11, 2014, 4:58 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Brooklyn Nets

    “There’s a reason these teams don’t do it. Emotionally, it’s just exhausting to keep doing it year after year, particularly when you have to deal with everything Miami has to deal with on a daily basis, just the constant critiquing and scrutiny on the team, and then you factor in the injuries with Wade and…

  22. Spoelstra says Heat won’t base injury decisions on experience of other teams

    Jan 10, 2014, 8:24 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Miami Heat

    NEW YORK – The Miami Heat weren’t at full strength during Thursday’s loss to the Knicks, and a day later in Brooklyn the team found out before tip-off that it would be even more shorthanded against the streaking Nets. Shane Battier and Mario Chalmers both sat against the Knicks, and will do so again in Brooklyn.…
