  1. Video: With game on line LeBron passes. Again. Heat lose

    Mar 3, 2012, 2:05 AM EDT

    Miami Heat forward LeBron James walks off the court after the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City, Utah

    It was like reliving the All-Star Game. LeBron James was at the heart of a comeback from 18-points down for the Heat — he had 19 points in the second half and controlled a lot of the key plays. He had another great game. But with the Heat down one with 4.5 seconds left LeBron…

  2. Relentless Miami Heat wear down, blow out Trail Blazers

    Mar 2, 2012, 2:28 AM EDT

    LeBron James

    Portland came out with a real energy Thursday night — they were up for this one. Their All-Star, LaMarcus Aldridge, had a dozen first quarter points and the Blazers seemed to hit everything they put up. The Heat have been a juggernaut and for 12 minutes the Blazers matched it. But the Heat are relentless.…

  3. Chris Bosh to miss next two Heat games for personal reasons

    Mar 1, 2012, 4:32 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Miami Heat

    Our condolences go out to Chris Bosh, his grandmother has passed away. You are in our thoughts. Because of that, Bosh will be missing the Heat’s Thursday game against Portland and Friday against Utah. He is expected to return Sunday when the Heat travel to Los Angeles to take on the Lakers. The Heat will…

  4. Baseline to Baseline recaps: LeBron beats Cleveland. Yawn.

    Feb 8, 2012, 8:49 AM EDT

    Miami Heat forward James watches a replay of his score with teammate Miller against the Cleveland Cavaliers in their NBA basketball game in Miami

    What you missed while learning to play a-ha on the accordion…. Heat 107, Cavaliers 91: As has been their pattern, this is another game where the Heat played down to the level of the competition. At least for three quarters — in the fourth the Heat cranked up the defense and that was enough to…

  5. Miami’s one hot stretch dooms Philadelphia to loss at home

    Feb 3, 2012, 11:54 PM EDT

    LeBron James Dwyane Wade

    It’s not the 43 minutes of good play, it’s the five minutes when Miami goes on a run that makes it so hard to beat them. Philadelphia is a seriously good team. At home Friday night they played a close game with last year’s Eastern Conference champions for three quarters. The defense, the ball movement,…

  6. Report: Heat make offers to Kenyon Martin, Joel Przybilla

    Feb 2, 2012, 1:00 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin

    The Heat certainly could use some help, some depth along the front line. No offense to Eddy Curry, but he turns out not to be the answer. So they have made offers to two free agents to be — Kenyon Martin and Joel Przybilla, reports Brian Windhorst at ESPN. The Heat have offered contracts to…

  7. Miami holds on, beats Chicago. Can we just start their playoff series now?

    Jan 29, 2012, 7:20 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James dunks against the Chicago Bulls during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    In two ways Sunday’s Heat victory over the Bulls summed up this young season. First, the Bulls and the Heat are the two best teams in the East. Clear and away. Philadelphia, Atlanta and even Indiana are good, but these two teams are on another level and are destined for an Eastern Conference finals rematch.…

  8. Chicago Bulls vs. Miami Heat: Five things to watch

    Jan 29, 2012, 12:35 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose LeBron James

    For the first time since the playoffs last year, the Chicago Bulls come into Miami to take on the Heat Sunday afternoon (3:30 ET on ABC). A battle of the two best teams in the East, two of the league’s true contenders, it’s a fun early season showdown and chance to measure each other right…

  9. Kwame Brown to have shoulder surgery, out three months

    Jan 12, 2012, 4:50 PM EDT

    Kwame Brown

    Kwame Brown, the Warriors new starting center and key to their defensive presence in the paint, will be out at least three months if not the rest of the season due to shoulder surgery, reports Matt Steinmetz at CSNBayArea.com. The surgery will repair a torn muscle in his shoulder suffered on a hard foul by…

  10. Winderman: Technical fouls more expensive with shortened season

    Dec 30, 2011, 4:40 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic, Game 5

    The upside of the NBA’s lockout-compacted 66-game schedule? It can shorten the lengths of previously handed-down suspensions, with Andrew Bynum and Charlie Villanueva receiving that benefit of the doubt to start the season. The downside? Less tolerance from big brother, namely NBA czar of discipline Stu Jackson. While much was made publicly of the league…

  11. NBA Season Preview: Miami Heat

    Dec 15, 2011, 12:00 AM EDT

    LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

    Last season: 58-24, second seed in the East. We all know how this turned out — Miami made it to the NBA Finals in its first season with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh, but lost the title to Dallas in six games. Head Coach: Erik Spoelstra, who interestingly enough has not yet been…

  12. Heat return Mario Chalmers, James Jones, and Juwan Howard for another go-around

    Dec 9, 2011, 5:03 PM EDT

    Mario Chalmers

    Although the Miami Heat’s failure to win the NBA title made them a frequent punchline, let’s not soon forget just how quickly the Heat were able to rise to the top of the league. Miami is an altogether incredible team, and though they squandered an opportunity in the NBA Finals, they likely need only to…

  13. Dwyane Wade sticks up for LeBron, Bosh

    Dec 7, 2011, 3:24 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    Dwyane Wade will take on your villain role as a member of the Miami Heat. Bring it on. But in the process he will stick up for his teammates. In an interview with Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel, Wade defended LeBron James’ comments in an ESPN interview where LeBron said he did not want…

  14. Goodbye Denver, Miami among suitors lined up for Nene

    Nov 29, 2011, 2:14 PM EDT

    Nene nuggets

    Nene is the biggest and best free agent on the market. Unless your team doesn’t need a legit 7-foot big man who plays smart, can defend the paint, rebound well, plus has a deft offensive touch around the rim and from the midrange. Denver can use one of those but after nine years in the…

  15. Dalembert considering Heat, Knicks, Rockets

    Nov 28, 2011, 12:52 AM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    Centers are at a premium in this league, that should be evident by now. Nene, Tyson Chandler, Marc Gasol, all will lead this free agency class. Dwight Howard headlines the next. Chandler’s defensive impact was a primary factor in the Mavericks winning the title. So Samuel Dalembert will be getting his fair share of calls…

  17. Shaq says he got in Pat Riley’s face in Miami, too

    Oct 31, 2011, 4:34 PM EDT

    shaq-riley

    Excerpts from Shaquille O’Neal’s new book hit the Web and of course our eyes are drawn to the Hatfields and McCoys that is he and Kobe Bryant with the Lakers. A legendary feud. But that’s not all that is there in the excerpts Deadspin published. There is also this description of his confrontation with then…

  18. Udonis Haslem gets cleared to play basketball, would like to play NBA basketball soon

    Oct 10, 2011, 5:46 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's Udonis Haslem celebrates a basket against the Chicago Bulls during Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference Finals playoff basketball game in Chicago

    Udonis Haslem‘s twitter account is less than 24 years old, but he’s already using it to post major news and his opinions about the lockout: How ironic. Just got cleared by doctors for full workouts. Hardwood here I come. LET US PLAY #STANDUNITED A foot injury caused Haslem to miss most of the regular season and…

  19. Udonis Haslem: Super happy optimistic guy…?

    Sep 11, 2011, 11:30 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Three

    Udonis Haslem is not a pleasant dude to talk to. I’m sure to friends and family he’s a right cuddly teddy bear. But to media, his reaction to most everything falls between dull boredom and outright disgust. It’s like if Oscar the Grouch could kill you. Pretty much that. But apparently he’s got a pretty…

  20. Udonis Haslem gets the rest of his hardware removed from his foot

    Aug 14, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's Udonis Haslem celebrates a basket against the Chicago Bulls during Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference Finals playoff basketball game in Chicago

    Something forgotten when Udonis Haslem came back to help lead the Heat’s surge past the Bulls in the Eastern Conference Finals is that Haslem wasn’t anywhere near healthy. He was in a race against time trying to recover from his foot injury, and had had significant surgery a few months before. Haslem was careful with…

  21. No NBA fines, suspensions from Game 6 announced

    Jun 14, 2011, 3:59 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Interesting note from Henry Abbott at TrueHoop — the NBA has yet to announce if there will be suspensions at the start of next season for the mini-altercation between Udonis Haslem and DeShawn Stevenson during Game 6. On one level I hope there are not any suspensions. It was a minor thing, some pushing and…

  22. League to review tape of Heat, Mavs altercation

    Jun 13, 2011, 9:42 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The good news is nobody is getting suspended from Game 7. But the league is going to review the tape from an altercation that started between DeShawn Stevenson and Udonis Haslem in the second quarter. If someone did leave the bench to enter the fray they could face a fine and be suspended at the…

    Dallas Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki (C) drives through Miami Heat's Udonis Haslem (L) and Chris Bosh (R) during Game 3 of the NBA Finals basketball series in Dallas

    At the end of Game 2 it was Chris Bosh on Dirk Nowitzki, at the end of Game 3 it was Udonis Haslem. The different outcomes are not all that simple, but it’s a big difference to start with. Good on Ekpe Udoh, who has returned to Oklahoma to work with victims of recent tornadoes.…

  24. Video: Chris Bosh drains game winner

    Jun 6, 2011, 9:37 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Three

    Miami has gotten in trouble this series when they have gone to LeBron James or Dwyane Wade in isolation. When it became hero ball as they tried to knock down the long jumper or drove headlong into the teeth of the defense. And in the biggest moment of the series you wondered if they may…

  25. NBA Finals: Miami balances star power with rebounding grit in Game 1 win

    Jun 1, 2011, 2:26 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game One

    All that it’s taken for the Miami Heat to win games in this year’s playoffs is the ability to maintain reasonable margins. They go on runs, they shut down their opponents’ offensive options, and they stretch their legs with displays of supreme athleticism, but the body of the single-game narrative — the initial 43 or…
