  1. Dwight Howard says he’s playing through a lot of pain, but it’s more than that

    Feb 11, 2013, 3:55 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Nobody is questioning that Dwight Howard is playing through shoulder pain. What Steve Nash on the court Sunday and countless others off the court have questioned is why that means he can’t move his feet quickly? Once again on Sunday against the Heat Howard was solid — 15 points and 9 rebounds in 41 minutes…

  2. Baseline to Baseline recaps: LeBron, Wade enough for Heat

    Feb 7, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Rockets Heat Basketball

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while trying out your stylish new Get Smart shoe-phone…. Heat 114, Rockets 108: What a fun finish. After collapsing in the finals last year against the Heat, James Harden exacted a little personal revenge. Harden was a one-man wrecking crew, scoring 36 points…

  3. LeBron, Wade unfazed by Heat’s latest loss to Pacers

    Feb 2, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Miami's LeBron James complains to an official against the Pacers during an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis.

    After the Heat lost to the Pacers in Indiana on Friday for the second time this season, there was no worry, panic, or even concern form Miami’s two biggest stars. LeBron James didn’t seem all that interested in the fact that his team has struggled against the top teams in the East this season, and…

  4. Report: Spurs continue to shop DeJuan Blair

    Jan 9, 2013, 10:38 PM EDT

    BLAIR_DeJUAN

    With just about every NBA General Manager in the same gym at the D-League showcase in Idaho, you’re going to see a lot of trade talk start to heat up. However, when it comes to the San Antonio Spurs and DeJuan Blair, that heat is more like an enduring flame than a spark. Basically, the…

  6. NBA Power Rankings: Clippers in top spot, which is close to Mayans being right

    Dec 24, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Los Angeles Clippers

    It’s not the end of the world in a classic way, or even in a “Michael Stipe feels fine” kind of way, but the Clippers being on top of the PBT power rankings are as close to the end of the world as we are getting this week. 1. Clippers (21-6, LW 2). Winners of…

  7. Will slap across face from Knicks finally wake Heat up?

    Dec 7, 2012, 11:55 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    The Knicks are legit, give them their due. In Miami Thursday night, even without Carmelo Anthony, they were the aggressors. Raymond Felton attacked and he Heat tried to react. It’s early, but New York is positioning itself to be the threat to Miami in the East. But let’s be honest — Miami has looked awful.…

  8. Heat likely without Shane Battier for “a few” after knee sprain

    Nov 26, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Phoenix Suns

    It was an awkward play Saturday night — Cleveland’s Alonzo Gee was driving the lane and Miami’s Udonis Haslem stepped in to take the charge. Haslem was knocked backwards and fell into Shane Battier’s right knee, and Battier went to the ground grabbing it. Battier left the game and did not return. He tweeted out…

  9. Chris Bosh isn’t worried about what you think he should do

    Nov 23, 2012, 12:59 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh poses for a portrait during media day at the Miami Heat's home arena in Miami, Florida

    Chris Bosh doesn’t care what numbers you think he should hit. Before last season Bosh predicted he would grab 10 rebounds a game, he grabbed jus 7.9. The Heat won the NBA title. Bosh will make that trade any day of the week. So this season he isn’t worrying about the numbers, it’s the flow…

  10. Report: Heat now on top of Kenyon Martin’s list

    Nov 13, 2012, 10:23 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin

    Kenyon Martins remains a free agent. He had gone from saying he wanted more than the league minimum and was only going to play for a contender to saying he will play for the league minimum and he will play for anyone. But he’d still like to be in Miami, according to Ira Winderman of…

  11. Looks like Battier is the other starting forward for Heat

    Oct 15, 2012, 8:03 AM EDT

    Shane Battier

    You kind of had to expect this after the playoffs last season. Still, we all know how coaches like to talk in training camp — “It’s an open competition, anybody can win the job.” And all that… manure. That’s what Erik Spoelstra’s been selling about the Heat’s lineups, but I think we can take a…

  13. NBA Season Preview: Miami Heat

    Oct 3, 2012, 3:25 PM EDT

    Miami Heat player LeBron James hoists the championship trophy as team mate Dwyane Wade looks on stage at a rally in Miami, Florida

    Last season: It was not flawless, but it was superb. It was not easy, but it was rewarding. And it was not what they thought it would be, but it was spectacular. The Miami Heat accomplished all of their goals in the 2012 season, that being the only goal they had: win the title. They…

  15. Haslem says Heat ready to defend their title. Shocking.

    Sep 24, 2012, 1:57 PM EDT

    Miami Heat Victory Parade And Rally

    Last June’s Miami Heat title was not the first trip down the parade route for Udonis Haslem. He was part of the Miami Heat’s 2006 title team. That would be the one that came back in no condition mentally to defend its title. One that fell apart as quickly as any champion in recent memory.…

  16. Mike Miller is (surprisingly) ready for training camp

    Sep 16, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's Miller shoots over Oklahoma City Thunder's Westbrook during the first quarter in Game 5 of the NBA basketball finals in Miami

    I’ll admit it, I was convinced that Mike Miller‘s three-point barrage against the Thunder in last year’s Finals was his way of blazing into glory, as in, off into the sunset. For two years, we’d watched Miller drag a body around that wasn’t just suffering in one part of his body, it was all of…

  18. NBA to expand use of instant replay for flagrant fouls, at end of games

    Jul 20, 2012, 12:39 AM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 3: Los Angeles Lakers v Boston Celtics

    If you have instant replay — the ability to get close calls right — you should use it. Better to drag the end of a game out a little and have the calls be right than to rush and be wrong. Along those lines, the owners voted Thursday to expand the use of instant replay…

  19. Camby will still meet with Heat after Allen signing, sign-and-trade possible

    Jul 7, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge, Marcus  Camby

    They got LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh. They got Shane Battier. They landed Ray Allen Friday night. The rich could get even richer. Yahoo Sports reports that Marcus Camby will still visit the Miami Heat on Saturday. How on Earth, with the money the Heat have committed, could they possible add Marcus Camby and…

  20. 2012 NBA Finals Heat-Thunder Game 3: Five things to watch

    Jun 17, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James goes to the basket against Oklahoma City Thunder's Durant during Game 2 of the NBA basketball finals in Oklahoma City

    With the Heat and Thunder knotted at 1-1, the NBA Finals resume Sunday night for the latest in a series of “pivotal” games. Both sides have accomplished some things in the first two games beyond just the one win, and both have established challenges they’ll have to overcome. Here are five things to keep an…

  21. Chris Bosh to start for Heat, Haslem to come off bench

    Jun 14, 2012, 8:31 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's Bosh speaks with media in Oklahoma City

    Erik Spoelstra has stopped playing games and is now going the only direction he really can — Chris Bosh will be back in the starting lineup for the Miami Heat, he announced before Game 2 in Oklahoma City Thursday night. But unlike during much of the season when both Bosh and Udonis Haslem would start,…

  22. Wade says LeBron having to cover Durant good for Miami

    Jun 12, 2012, 12:26 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat

    It’s one of the best parts of these NBA finals — Kevin Durant and LeBron James are going to be matched up on each other. The two best players in the game today going head-to-head. It’s not going to happen all the time (expect cross matching, the Heat will want LeBron on Durant at key…

  24. Celtics-Heat Game 7: Chris Bosh will not start

    Jun 9, 2012, 8:13 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Heat coach Erik Spoelstra told reporters prior to Game 7 that Chris Bosh would not start but will play in Game 7. Bosh played more minutes in Game 6 than in Game 7, and it’s difficult to see the advantage in feeding Udonis Haslem to the KG lions, but maybe Spoelstra’s “riding the hot hand”…
