Battier, with another amazing game. 1-7, 1-3 from three (1st quarter). Haslem need to be in there, as much as he has sucked this entire eason.

Meh he was very good off of the bench today. Might want to stick with what won us the game today

Battier can be 0-10 and i'm still not worried. He has one of the best defense I have ever seen in my life.

I think the lineup is fine. We haven't had any answer for Hansbrough and Amundson. Hopefully Haslem can do something to match their scrappiness by continuing off the bench.

I just want Spo to be CONFIDENT about a lineup and stick with it. Nothing says "I have no idea what I'm doing" like starting a different 4 and 5 every different game. Granted Bosh is out, but Joel Anthony started most of the season and now isn't. Turiaf started today but only got 15 minutes. Dexter Pittman the other day. What is Spo doing?

Our best lineup to throw out there
Chamlers
Wade
Battier
Lebron
Haslem

But that doesn't mean we should start that lineup. We need a bench spark which is what Haslem was today.

I don't really like that Battier has to match up with West when he starts like today. He seems to get pushed around because West is bigger/stronger. I think it takes alot out of him when he has to go against someone like that and it could effect his shooting and other areas because he's expending so much effort on defense. If Haslem continues to play like he did today he may deserve to start, but either way if he's playing well he will probably get the same amount of minutes starting or coming off the bench.

At the end of the day Battier is doing his job. He's playing the PF and defending West and getting tired so the exact same thing doesn't have to happen to LeBron.

sart turiaf and battier, just play udonis and joel most of the time. those 2 need to play but they just can't get into foul trouble. i would start those 2 without a doubt if it weren't for the fear of foul trouble.

I don't know what Battier is doing good right now, he's getting scored on and he's not doing anything offensively. How is he getting so many minutes?

A big part of the reason we won game 3 was because Haslem got more than 7mpg. Spoelstra has to be the worst coach in the NBA right now with his preference for guys who don't produce at all and get scored on.

here we go again ..the thread about someone who plays better or plays poorer .. LOL !!
seriously ,haslem is ok off the bench ..what we need to do much better is a total effort on the glass ..less TO ..i like what we do out there when they are taking away hibbert then posting up wade/lebron on the weak side ..

watching those haslem jumpers fall late in the 4th was just a beautiful thing.
