Maybe Spurs ( The HEAT are a pathetic 2-20 against the Spurs at their place "They never win their" )
Knicks


Edit**



The Heat have won the last three meetings with the Spurs, but are just 2-22 in the previous 24 trips to the Alamo City.

Kinda got a bad feeling about tonight. But we'll see what happens. Duncan has been playing great and it'll be interesting to see how the matchups work out from Miami's front court perspective.

Keys for SA:

-Take care of the ball
-Knock down open shots
-Defend the 3

^I just hope Duncan doesn't abuse Bosh too much. I wish Spo would use a more traditional lineup this time around...I'm not entirely convinced we can get away with playing Battier with at 4 tonight. Sure the match ups might work offensively, but it's really dependent on whether or not he hits his open shots. I wanna see a Bosh-Birdman front court.

Yea I'm interested to see what kind of adjustment each coach makes and which team can force the other to play their style.

Lebron looks like he's going to play angry , we know he'll get his. I also wonder if he guards TP at some point

That's a big payback, and I'm sure Spo has nothing to do with it. I think that's Arison or Riley sending a message. :D

Now Bron, Wade and Chalmers out. Thanks me later.

If this game was on TNT, there would be more backlash, though I don't know if Stern would "fine" the heat. Everyone said this is what teams would do. Pop has done this a handful of times saying guys had an injury. He even had 2 guys out for an identical injury

Just going to say this.

There was a bad call towards the end of this game that gave the HEAT two free throws. Undeniable. There were also 20 other bad calls in this game throughout.

The Spurs should have never allowed the HEAT to be close. And at the end of the day the Spurs still had a lead when Chris Bosh stepped up and hit a man sized clutch shot to give the heat the win.

So all you haters. Slow your roll. If you wanna blame someone blame the Spurs starting backcourt that shot 8-28...

Right, I mean we went without 6 guys in Miami (full strength) and lost by I think 5. So with a full squad (sans Manu) against a heat team without Wade & Lebron you'd think would be a blowout. But it doesn't work that way. Hardly ever does actually.

They getting stops, they just chucking 3's and missing rebounds cuz' they can't and then we go out small break vs them and hit transition 3's. JR was the only one going to the rim. *he's been on his game*

Did you not notice how many times they tried to get the transistion 3 vs us? instead of setting up their offense? they that freaked what to do on offense that they are literally shooting theirselves into trouble.

Right, I mean we went without 6 guys in Miami (full strength) and lost by I think 5. So with a full squad (sans Manu) against a heat team without Wade & Lebron you'd think would be a blowout. But it doesn't work that way. Hardly ever does actually.
Have no idea what was with Parker tonight....he didn't look very good at all. I agree, just chalk it up to guy on Miami playing over their heads (I've never seen Lewis defend like that ever), and San Antonio just going through the motions. Still, great morale boost on Miami's end....pretty darn well all things considered.

Parker just looked great against CP3 and Co on Friday. I think it's only natural when the dynamics of a much anticipated game are changed the way they were. That, and our guys couldn't hit 3's to save their lives. But from the tip it went 7-0 Miami and you just knew the energy was not there.

Great win for Miami for sure. Good for the bench & Bosh.

Despite the lost we played great tonight, lets keep building! But I know what I'm doing this summer straight free throw shooting! Lol

At least he has a sense of humor, he knows what to work on.

Man those were awful. His form doesn't even look that bad though.

Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way. Cause the Spurs would not have come out as lethargic as they did.
Are you saying the Spurs played down to the level if their competition?

This is a Popovich coached team. I don't think he would allow the Spurs to play down to their competition.

Popovich coached teams have done it before. He's gotten himself ejected before just to spark the team. Regardless of what some folks think, the Spurs players are human.
