    BASKET-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT

    SAN ANTONIO — All season long, when the Heat would crank up their defense and make a run, other teams wilted. San Antonio stood up the the runs, executed, hit open shots and a lot of tough ones, and won 114-104 to take a 3-2 series lead. San Antonio will have two chances on the…

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game Four

    SAN ANTONIO — In Game 4, the Heat went small starting Mike Miller instead of Udonis Haslem, and it took Gregg Popovich all of 47 seconds to adjust, pulling Tiago Splitter for Gary Neal. Then in the second half Boris Diaw started, a guy who because of his size and style of play lets the…

    Spurs head coach Popovich directs his team against the Grizzlies during the fourth quarter in Game 3 of their NBA Western Conference final playoff basketball series in Memphis

    The San Antonio Spurs have never trailed in an NBA Finals series. With the Finals tied, the Spurs are 10-0 and have won by an average of 11.1 points per game. Not the New York Knicks in 1999, New Jersey Nets in 2003, Detroit Pistons in 2005, Cleveland Cavaliers in 2007 or Miami Heat this…

    Heat's James watches center Bosh dunk against the Spurs as Diaw (33) and  Duncan (21) look on during Game 4 of their NBA Finals basketball series in San Antonio

    Just five active players have more than two seasons averaging 22 points and eight rebounds per game. Of those five, four have received at least one MVP vote in the last three years, and the one who hasn’t is the youngest. Dirk Nowitzki, Kevin Garnett, Tim Duncan and Amar’e Stoudemire have been recognized among the…

    Jun 13, 2013, 10:35 PM EDT

    Heat's James and Spurs' Parker follow the play during Game 2 of their NBA Finals basketball playoff in Miami

    Miami needed a better defensive effort and they got it — San Antonio shot 44.3 percent, the Heat forced 18 turnovers and allowed the Spurs just 5 offensive rebounds. They needed someone to step up besides LeBron James and they got Dwyane Wade in the hot tub time machine back to 2006 — 32 points,…

  6. It’s official: Mike Miller moves into the starting lineup for Heat in Game 4

    Jun 13, 2013, 8:52 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Heat Basketball

    It’s official, Mike Miller is starting for the Miami Heat in place of Udonis Haslem in Game 4. We told you it might be coming and Erik Spoelstra dodged making the announcement as long as he could, but you have to set your lineups with the officials and the starters have to be named. So…

  7. Report: Erik Spoelstra considering starting Mike Miller in Game 4

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Miami needs floor spacing to get their offense going. The San Antonio Spurs are packing the paint, ignoring Dwyane Wade on the perimeter off the ball, taking away LeBron James’ driving lanes and daring anyone on the Spurs to regularly beat them by shooting over the top. The Heat have become stagnant, the weak side…

  8. Heat get their own D-League team

    Jun 10, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Juwan Howard, Dwyane Wade, Jarvis Varnado

    The Miami Heat surely have designs of contending for championships for the next several years, even though LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh can each become free agents in any of the next three offseasons after this one. Of course, the Heat plan to keep all three, and at this point, losing them would…

    Warriors' Curry is congratulated by fans in the Warriors' overtime win over the Spurs during Game 4 of their NBA Western Conference semi-final playoff basketball game in Oakland

    Stephen Curry loves the Warriors. The Warriors love Stephen Curry. Curry just led Golden State to only its second postseason berth since 1994, and to top it off, the Warriors upset the Nuggets in the first round. Just four years into his career, Curry has become one of the NBA’s best and most-exciting players, and…

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Monday night is just number four. For some reason it feels like LeBron James has been in more Game 7s in his career, but there have been just three. Two came with the Cavaliers, one with the Heat last season. And if you are going to draw one conclusion from those three games and extrapolate…

    Heat's James and Pacers' Stephenson prepare to play during the fourth quarter in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference Final basketball playoff series in Indianapolis

    The Miami Heat are at home, they have the swagger that comes with having hung a banner, they are battle tested, and they have the best player in the world on their team. He’s the trump card. The Indiana Pacers are confident, they have the blueprint on how to win against the Heat, they are…

  13. Heat/Pacers Game 6 preview: Indiana must get back to scoring to stay alive

    Jun 1, 2013, 12:29 PM EDT

    Heat's James and Pacers' Stephenson prepare to play during the fourth quarter in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference Final basketball playoff series in Indianapolis

    After four games where the Pacers owned the offensive glass, got to the free throw line and used those things to score on the Heat at a shocking rate, Game 5 was a radical departure. Indiana grabbed the offensive rebound on just 18.8 percent of their missed shots (it had been 39.9 percent for the…

  14. Mario Chalmers, Udonis Haslem replace Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh as LeBron’s scoring sidekicks

    May 31, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    Mario Chalmers, Udonis Haslem, LeBron James

    Chris Bosh missed the Heat’s first shot, Dwyane Wade missed their second, and Udonis Haslem missed their third. Of those three players, one attempted more shots than each of the other two and also didn’t miss again. Who was it? LeBron James has led the Heat in scoring in all five games of the Eastern…

  15. Frank Vogel errs by readily sitting George Hill, Lance Stephenson with foul trouble

    May 31, 2013, 8:30 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers - Game Four

    George Hill picked up his fourth foul midway through the third quarter of Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals, and after he hit a technical free throw on his way to the bench (thanks to jawing between Mario Chalmers, David West and Udonis Haslem), the Pacers led by two points. By the time Hill…

  16. Paul George and Roy Hibbert score Pacers’ first 29 points in loss to Heat

    May 31, 2013, 2:28 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Chris Andersen’s shoulder/stare down/shove of Tyler Hansbrough early in the second quarter of Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals distracted from another interesting development that followed. Once the dust settled, Hansbrough made one of two free throws granted due to Andersen’s flagrant 1. Those were the Pacers’ first points scored by someone other than…

  17. LeBron James’ monster third quarter swings game (VIDEO)

    May 31, 2013, 2:08 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Five

    For the first half of this game (and frankly most of the last one) LeBron James was passive, settling for jumpers rather than challenge Roy Hibbert and the Pacers’ size up front. Then the third quarter happened. LeBron probably looked the most Jordan we have ever seen of him — he screamed at his teammates…

  18. For a night Heat solve Pacers’ rebounding, defensive puzzle

    May 31, 2013, 12:27 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Five

    For four games the Pacers offense had been fueled by offensive rebounds and getting to the free throw line. Those plays and the surprising success of the Pacers offense — averaging 111.6 points per 100 possessions — had the series tied 2-2. In Game 5 things were different. Indiana had just six offensive rebounds, grabbing…

    Miami Heat's LeBron James directs his teammates against the Indiana Pacers during the fourth quarter in Game 5 of their NBA Eastern Conference final basketball playoff in Miami

    We can talk about Xs and Os, offense versus defense, and individual player matchups over the course of a seven game playoff series. But sometimes, it all boils down to something as simple as which team the best player in the game plays for. That was certainly the case in Game 5 of the Eastern…

  20. Heat/Pacers Game 5 preview: Hibbert is Heat’s big problem

    May 30, 2013, 2:26 PM EDT

    Pacers' Hibbert works against Heat's Andersen during the fourth quarter in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference Final basketball playoff series in Indianapolis

    Forty percent. That is the key number. So far in the Eastern Conference Finals the Indiana Pacers have grabbed the offensive rebound on 39.9 percent of their missed shots — four out of 10 times they miss, they get a second chance. A fair amount of the time that is an easy tip-in or put-back…

  21. Roy Hibbert dominating Heat inside

    May 29, 2013, 5:04 PM EDT

    Pacers' Hibbert works against Heat's Andersen during the fourth quarter in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference Final basketball playoff series in Indianapolis

    The LeBron James/Dwyane Wade/Chris Bosh Miami Heat have allowed only one player to average at least 10 points, 10 rebounds and shoot 45 percent in a playoff series. Roy Hibbert is on the verge of becoming the second. Hibbert – who’s crushing the threshold by averaging 22.8 points and 12.0 rebounds per game and shooting…

    Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers - Game Three

    Somewhere around Game 4 or 5 of a series there are no more secrets. You know the other team’s plays, the tendencies, the adjustments they made, the matchups they are trying to force. You take away everything you can and try to leave your opponent with only the worst options. We are at this point…

  23. Heat blowout win doesn’t define series, but it might win it

    May 27, 2013, 12:36 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers - Game Three

    Even for the Miami Heat, this game was an outlier. They scored 70 points on 63 percent shooting with one turnover in the first half. Udonis Haslem hit 8-of-9 to lead Heat players outside the “big three” shooting 55 percent. Haslem’s shooting eventually pulled Roy Hibbert away from the paint and opened everything inside. LeBron…

  24. Heat send a message with blowout Game 3 win over Pacers

    May 27, 2013, 12:01 AM EDT

    Pacers' West, Stephenson and George react near the end of Game 3 of their NBA Eastern Conference final basketball playoff series against the Heat in Indianapolis

    The Heat didn’t only reclaim home court advantage in the Eastern Conference Finals with a lopsided 114-96 victory in Indiana on Sunday — they sent a message. Miami rolled from the very start, and in doing so reminded us of just how dominant this team was all season long. In the first two games of…

  25. Highlights from Heat’s insane first half against Pacers (VIDEO)

    May 26, 2013, 11:49 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers - Game Three

    The numbers seem unreal: 70 points on 62.8 percent shooting, 15 assists to one turnover, LeBron James 7-of-11, Udonis Haslem 6-of-7. The Miami Heat played about as perfect a half of basketball as they could and with that overwhelmed a very good Pacers’ defense. The result was a 14 point lead at the break that…
