    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…

  2. 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…

  3. NBA Finals: Heat, Mavericks five keys to victory

    May 27, 2011, 6:04 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat

    Miami always seemed like they had a chance if they just came together — and they did at the right time. Dallas has been a surprise. We all knew they were good but we had been conditioned to expect them to fall flat in the playoffs. Instead Tyson Chandler gave them defensive toughness and Dirk…

  4. NBA Playoffs: Back in sweet home Chicago can Bulls extend series?

    May 26, 2011, 1:02 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    In one key way, the Eastern Conference Finals have been a lot like the Western Conference Finals — it has been about the fourth quarter. Miami has turned up the defensive pressure late and the Bulls have wilted in the final stanza. In the fourth quarter of the last three games the Bulls have shot…

  5. Dallas gets to sit back and relax… but don’t expect rust

    May 26, 2011, 2:42 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    Dallas now has some time to put its feet up and relax after polishing off the Thunder 100-96 in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals. They’ve got a wait ahead of them. At least until next Tuesday (if Miami wins on Thursday night), maybe until June 2 (if Chicago wins). Either way, nearly a…

  6. NBA Playoffs: Heat complement their star power with depth, take Game 4

    May 25, 2011, 1:39 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The Chicago Bulls finished with a better regular-season record than the star-studded Miami Heat for two reasons: superior depth and better play in close games. On Tuesday night, the Heat flipped the script on the Bulls, and took a commanding 3-1 series lead thanks to superior depth and late-game execution. All season long, the Bulls…

  7. NBA Playoffs Heat vs. Bulls Game 3: Advantage, home-court and otherwise

    May 22, 2011, 5:59 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng, Taj Gibson

    How many times do you read the word “advantage” in sports? It’s used so frequently even in the face of the obviousness of what it implies. After all, what makes teams “bad” so often is a lack of advantage, or a lack of willingness to exploit that advantage. Josh Smith of the Atlanta Hawks is…

  8. Heat’s Haslem sits out practice Friday just as precaution

    May 20, 2011, 4:49 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, the man off the bench that helped change the Heat’s fortunes in Game 2 and even the series, sat out practice Friday because of his surgically repaired foot. Relax Heat fans, it’s just precautionary. Deep breathes. Haslem stayed out of running drills, according to a tweet from our man Ira Winderman with the…

  9. NBA Playoffs: Udonis Haslem is back. Miami just got better.

    May 19, 2011, 12:31 AM 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

    When the Heat roster was in upheaval this summer, clearing out cap space to chase a three-man dream team, Udonis Haslem was a free agent. A free agent drawing interest from around the league because every team could use a forward who will do the dirty work and can bury the midrange jumper. To show…

  10. NBA Playoffs: Heat win war of attrition, get split in Chicago

    May 19, 2011, 12:15 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    The final box score makes it look like the Heat evened up the Eastern Conference finals with relative ease. Miami won by a final score of 85-75, the Bulls shot only 34 percent from the floor, and Derrick Rose shot 7-for-23 from the floor while LeBron James and Dwyane Wade combined to score 53 points. In…

  11. NBA Playoffs: Witnessing the ascension

    May 12, 2011, 3:22 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    This was the dream. For all the criticism, the spontaneous hatred from people he never met in cities he’d never lived, for the questions and the scrutiny, this was what he had hoped for. When LeBron James decided to abandon the franchise that drafted him and pursue a team that didn’t think Wally Sczcerbiak/Ben Wallace/Mo…

  12. NBA Playoffs: Haslem returns to Heat for Game 4

    May 9, 2011, 7:35 PM EDT

    Image (1) haslem_sad-thumb-250x140-18298.jpg for post 3694

    UPDATE 7:35 PM: Udonis Haslem not only was in uniform but got time starting in the second quarter for the Heat. He picked up two quick fouls, plus a technical foul for arguing the calls (the second was iffy). So, welcome back. 6:02 pm: The Miami Heat are up 2-1 on the Boston Celtics, but…

  13. No Shaq for Celtics, no Udonis Haslem for Heat in Game 2

    May 3, 2011, 11:26 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Shaquille O’Neal will not be playing in Game 2 against the Heat Tuesday Night. I know. Stunning. The big man himself limped into shootaround Tuesday and ruled himself out, according to A. Sherrod Blakely at CSN New England. But he almost certainly will play in Game 3,…

  14. Winderman: Celtics advantages came courtesy Riley, Heat

    Apr 26, 2011, 12:13 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Three

    Rare is the NBA playoff series when the opposition opens with a 3-0 lead without playing a game. That, however, essentially, will be the case with the impending Heat-Celtics Eastern Conference semifinal series. The Heat will take on the Celtics with a decided deficit at center, point guard and backup power forward. In each case,…

  15. Wade says 2011 Heat remind him of non-championship 2005 team

    Apr 23, 2011, 7:29 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Philadelphia 76ers

    It’s not what he meant, but it’s how people are going to take it. Dwyane Wade told reporters Saturday that this Heat team reminds him not of the 2006 championship team, but the 2005 team that lost in the Eastern Conference Finals. From our own Ira Winderman writing at the South Florida Sun-Sentinel: “More similarities…

  16. Heat don’t expect Udonis Haslem back anytime soon

    Mar 29, 2011, 9:01 PM EDT

    Image (1) nba_g_haslem1_sw_576-thumb-250x140-15204.jpg for post 2933

    The Miami Heat could really use Udonis Haslem. They could use the depth, the strength inside, the rebounding, the defense. The Heat had hoped to get Haslem back from the torn ligament in his left foot by the start of the playoffs, but before tonight’s game in Cleveland Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said Haslem wouldn’t…

  17. Zydrunas Ilgauskas to return to Heat Sunday

    Mar 27, 2011, 9:14 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    Friday we let you know of reports indicating Zydrunas Ilgauskas was on his way back to recovery from that grotesque foot injury he sustained when he stepped on a nail. Now comes word that ESPN reports Ilgauskas is expected to return to action Sunday against Houston for the first time in eight games. Ilgauskas’ return…

  18. Haslem targeting late March return

    Jan 4, 2011, 6:50 PM EDT

    Image (1) haslem_sad-thumb-250x140-18298.jpg for post 3694

    According to the Associated Press’ Tim Reynolds, Miami Heat forward Udonis Haslem‘s rehab from a torn ligament in his left foot is “on schedule,” and Haslem is hoping to return to the team in late March. Haslem’s injury took place on November 20th. The Heat lost the game he was injured in, lost three of…

  19. Portland, Miami granted exceptions for Oden, Haslem

    Image (1) nba_g_haslem1_sw_576-thumb-250x140-15204.jpg for post 2933

    Portland’s Greg Oden and Miami’s Udonis Haslem are expected to be out for the rest of the regular season due to injuries. That would be Haslem’s foot and Oden’s recurring knee injury. Friday afternoon, the league granted the two teams disabled players exceptions, which allows them to fill up to half of those salary spots…

  20. Heat’s struggles against good teams meaningless come playoffs

    Dec 6, 2010, 11:40 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks

    At some point, the Miami Heat are going to have to consistently beat very good teams to reach their goal. That point is in May. Nearly six months from now. Right now, the Heat’s much publicized 3-7 record against teams over .500 is pretty meaningless as a predictor of future success. The Heat team that…

  21. Outlining the damning problems of the Heat’s offense

    Nov 30, 2010, 6:34 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    This season has gone pretty well for the Miami Heat, don’tcha think? They’re ranked seventh in the league in offensive efficiency, and sixth in the league in defensive efficiency. Aside from offensive rebounding rate, they rank in the top 13 teams in each of the offensive and defensive “four factors” (effective field goal percentage, effective…

  22. Udonis Haslem eyes return for playoffs

    Nov 30, 2010, 10:01 AM EDT

    Image (1) haslem_sad-thumb-250x140-18298.jpg for post 3694

    The Miami Heat miss Udonis Haslem, who is out with a broken foot. They miss his rebounding. They miss his versatility on the defensive end. Those are things they will really need come the playoffs, and Haslem hopes to be back by then. He hopes to be back by April he told Tim Reynolds of…

  23. Report: Jerry Stackhouse ends up man on the outside in Miami

    Nov 23, 2010, 12:02 PM EDT

    Stackhouse_heat

    The Miami Heat needed to cut somebody loose to bring in Erick Dampier — and they need to bring in Dampier — the only question was who? Jerry Stackhouse. That according to a tweet from Chris Broussard at ESPN (something other sources have confirmed now). It also makes sense, even though other names (Dexter Pittman…

  24. Dampier to sign one-year deal with Heat Tuesday

    Nov 22, 2010, 11:00 PM EDT

    dampier

    Watching the Miami Heat lose to the Indiana Pacers Monday night, it became clear they need something. We’ll see if Erick Dampier can be part of that something. Multiple reports have the Miami Heat offering a one-year, minimum deal to Dampier (Ken Berger of CBS was first with this). He is expected to sign it…

  25. With Haslem out, will LeBron see more time at the four?

    Nov 22, 2010, 7:45 PM EDT

    LeBron Post

    Udonis Haslem going down with a torn foot ligament is very bad for the Miami Heat means that the Miami Heat are going to have to make some tough calls regarding their rotation in the coming weeks. Allow me to offer this thought: instead of giving Haslem’s minutes to Juwan Howard, Jamaal Magloire, or increasing…
