All 4 of these teams were going to face will likely all play small and play at a faster pace than the first two games.

If Dragic is still out of sync THEN is when I would start having concerns.

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 02:27 AM
Dragic isn't out of sync

He just needs to play with the 2nd team because he's pointless with Wade

SteBO
11-01-2015, 01:04 PM
I'm not buying that. Dragic & Wade played great together last year.

WaDe03
11-01-2015, 03:33 PM
Dwight is out too. If Whiteside and Bosh don't dominate this game then something is wrong.

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 03:39 PM
Yeah, we gotta make it a point to get it inside to whiteside and bosh

They should have an easy day today

Dade County

Thr Rockets are 0-2, this will be a tough game for Miami; Houston will be hungry for their first win of the season.

0-2 with no starting PF , Starting C or back up PF.


No excuse to lose this game

11-01-2015, 05:02 PM
And Harden has the lil B curse

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 05:04 PM
Wade might be a little extra motivated to be facing what most consider to be the top SG now

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 05:29 PM
Wade might be a little extra motivated to be facing what most consider to be the top SG now

how awesome would it be if wade just completely embarassed harden going for like 40 points and limiting harden to single digits. too bad it wont happen

Dade County

Stat brings his own curse to the table as well.

Harden will score because of foul calls

But he's been terrible from the field

beasted86
11-01-2015, 06:28 PM
With Howard and the rest of their bigs banged up, the Rockets will be playing small and fast like I said earlier.

I expect Dragic to have a good game and Bosh to dominate.

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 06:29 PM
Harden will score because of foul calls

But he's been terrible from the field

lets hope he continues that stretch today

hotdalton18

Yep!

He's like 3/22 from 3 or something like that

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 07:14 PM
Bosh killing us early

Has harden on him and does a step back jumper? Then misses an easy lay up

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 07:18 PM
wade has been automatic form the free throw line so far

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 07:19 PM
realy? some nobody clint capella is killing us? reminds me of earlier seasons where a bunch of nobody's always go off against us

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 07:24 PM
The calls Harden gets are amazing

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 07:24 PM
dumb pass from whiteside but stil. there was no contact at all on that drive. Harden was the one who drives INTO whiteside. bs call

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 07:27 PM
whiteside wake up bro. damn

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 07:29 PM
Whiteside a couple dumb passes

But geez he is rebounding and scoring like a beast

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 07:29 PM
there you go

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 07:30 PM
Charmers terrible pass while Whiteside was wide open smh

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 07:30 PM
rockets have 30 points with 3 minutes to go in the first. not a good sign

Slug3
11-01-2015, 07:33 PM
Turnovers are killing us.

Slug3
11-01-2015, 07:34 PM
We need to just trade Mario and give TJ his minutes.

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 07:36 PM
Bench caught us up

LOOK AT THAT! how the fck is that a foul?

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 07:38 PM
Charmers another garbage pass dude common

Hardaway Here
11-01-2015, 07:41 PM
just stupid TO's all throughout the 1st

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 07:43 PM
Bosh has been hard to watch so far

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 07:45 PM
boy, is this team ugly without wade for offense

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 07:46 PM
Lol Dragic x)

Slug3
11-01-2015, 07:46 PM
God our offense looks horrible at the moment. Nobody wants to be the big boy so we are just over passing into turnovers.

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 07:46 PM
boy, is this team ugly without wade for offense

Or the 5-5 Whiteside

WaDe03
11-01-2015, 07:47 PM
Damn it's already over. No excuse for losing to a team with no big man when you have guys like Bosh and Whiteside.

Slug3
11-01-2015, 07:49 PM
Come out of a timeout to another turnover. Holy cow. We overrated this team.

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 07:49 PM
Wade and Whiteside should of been back in awhile ago

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 07:50 PM
was a home game win vs a rockets team without 2 starters and 1 backup player not playing realy to much to ask?

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 07:50 PM
We paid Dragic max lol

Dade County
11-01-2015, 07:50 PM
We are playing like ****.

I can not stand Rio.

justinnum1
11-01-2015, 07:51 PM
pat bev is owning dragic

^we also gave up 2 future firsts for him.

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 07:51 PM
Can Whiteside start getting bosh' shots?

It would be much more effective

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 07:52 PM
We are playing like ****.

I can not stand Rio.

Been saying that

But hey guys fight me in here saying he's good all the time lol

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 07:52 PM
ughhhhhhhh. those foullsss my goddd please NBA stop sucking hardens dick. wtffffff

Slug3
11-01-2015, 07:53 PM
We paid Dragic max lol

Don't worry. He won't be here for his whole contract. In sure if we can magically land KD we would look to trade dragic.

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 07:53 PM
That's not a travel wtf

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 07:53 PM
When green is off he's very bad lol

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 07:56 PM
Whiteside is such a beast

It's crazy we don't look to get him involved as a main piece most the time

Cause every time we do he shows why it's a good idea

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 07:56 PM
i know this game has a long time to go but stil, i just dont see this team making a big run to come back AND then to take the lead and close it out. wade is not a player who can mount a comeback. he's a player who can maintain leads imo. As long as our bench keeps struggling we just have no chance to get back

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 07:57 PM
Games not over

There's just a lot of things that don't go together on this team

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 07:57 PM
lol jason jackson "youre enjoying miami heat basketball" wel tbh i'm not realy enjoying it bro

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 07:59 PM
Johnson in instead of Mario

Finally ! Lol

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 08:01 PM
Thornton is ****ing killing us

WaDe03
11-01-2015, 08:03 PM

Don't fool yourself it's been over.

Hardaway Here
11-01-2015, 08:03 PM
wow our offense just looks terrible. D on the perimeter just trash oh and of course the TOs

WaDe03
11-01-2015, 08:03 PM
Confused why we didn't sign Thornton and also confused why we keep letting them shoot 3s when we know that's all they want to do.

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 08:07 PM
noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo please

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 08:09 PM
the ONLY reason and i mean the ONLY reason we might have an ever so small chance of getting back is because that dumbass harden is taking some horrible horrible shots

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 08:11 PM
Fire Spo

Trade every player aside from Wade, Whiteside and Winslow

Lol

Slug3
11-01-2015, 08:23 PM
Bosh putting up some monster points on the smaller team.

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 08:27 PM
first posession of the 2nd half. a wide open dunk for the rockets. next up, a shot clock violation for the heat

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 08:27 PM
Dragic really just stood there and took a shot clock violation instead of giving it to Whiteside who was calling for it lol

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 08:30 PM
lol all those sad faces tell the story dont they

beasted86
11-01-2015, 08:31 PM
The team has no identity. No heart right now.

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 08:32 PM
Whiteside brining us back

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 08:34 PM
watching prison break to hype my nerves up during timeouts is awesome

Hardaway Here
11-01-2015, 08:36 PM
string of stops and right back in it

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 08:37 PM
Harden going for 3 free throws for the 3rd time

Nba refs are so ******** lmao

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 08:37 PM
jesus christ look at this. i cant believe it. i cannot believe it. my god

Hardaway Here
11-01-2015, 08:38 PM
Harden going to lead the league in 3 point fouls drawn

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 08:38 PM
i would literally be screaming my lungs out spewing all kinds of insults at harden if i were sitting under the basket now. that disgusting bearded idiot is such a bs player

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 08:38 PM
YEAH THATS it GET THAT BALl

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 08:39 PM
can you imagine what the score wouldve been if harden wasnt gifted like 10 free throws? damn straight NBA

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 08:41 PM
haha fck you beverley. deal with it

Hardaway Here
11-01-2015, 08:41 PM
I dont want bosh back in this game

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 08:43 PM
Whiteside better get limited rest and play almost the whole 4th quarter

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 08:44 PM
Whiteside better get limited rest and play almost the whole 4th quarter

same with wade

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 08:46 PM
whiteside is beasting today

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 08:47 PM
Whiteside better be a focal point on this offense from now on

No need to ever shoot less then 15 shots for him

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 08:47 PM
Tyler Johnson causing the steal and now green going to the line

Hardaway Here
11-01-2015, 08:48 PM
Lets go! Good D

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 08:50 PM
Now Down by 3 can we keep going without Whiteside ?

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 08:52 PM
you see, this is why i like the heat commentators so much. they give credit to officials when they make the right call and dont overreact when they make the wrong one

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 08:52 PM
Tied up

Hardaway Here
11-01-2015, 08:52 PM
Bosh needs to own his damn mismatches

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 08:53 PM
look at CB haha

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 08:54 PM
4th quarter line up should be

Wade
Johnson
Winslow
Bosh
Whiteside

Hardaway Here
11-01-2015, 08:54 PM
Such a difference with no turnovers and good D

Hardaway Here
11-01-2015, 08:56 PM
4th quarter line up should be

Wade
Johnson
Winslow
Bosh
Whiteside

I'd rather have Deng then Bosh

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 08:58 PM
4th quarter line up should be

Wade
Johnson
Winslow
Bosh
Whiteside

I'd rather have Deng then Bosh

Yah that may be the best call


Bosh looks terrible

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 08:58 PM
houston is getting some disgusting calls

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 08:58 PM
Whiteside needs to come back asap

Slug3
11-01-2015, 08:59 PM
There is no excuse for your highest paid player to be scoreless in the 4th. And he just scored. Lol

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 08:59 PM
Bosh finally hit 1 lol

Hardaway Here
11-01-2015, 08:59 PM
Finally

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 09:00 PM
Mario getting emotional

Good foul by Beverly

Idk why he's mad lol

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 09:01 PM
Mario with his 3rd terrible pass leading to a bucket for them

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 09:02 PM
Tyler Johnson getting rios missed shot for an and 1

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 09:02 PM
also notice how stoudemire hasnt played at all today. looks like spo atleast learned from the cavs game

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 09:03 PM
also notice how stoudemire hasnt played at all today. looks like spo atleast learned from the cavs game

We should sign Chris walker

He looked good in short minutes in summer league and pre season

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 09:06 PM
Johnson set up bosh perfect on the 3

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 09:06 PM
Ruuuuuunnn theres a raptor on the loose!!!!!

Hardaway Here
11-01-2015, 09:06 PM
Well finally he doing something productive

Slug3
11-01-2015, 09:06 PM
Well bosh did nothing all game and at least he's putting up in the most important part of the game.

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 09:07 PM
If we complete the come back

It could be a huge jolt for a dead energy team

Mr. Baller
11-01-2015, 09:08 PM
Great adjustment by Spo to go to TJ and not go with Amar'e. Also always kept 1 starter in the game.

WaDe03
11-01-2015, 09:08 PM
Let's ****ing go! Way to step up Bosh let's keep this up.

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 09:09 PM
Bring Whiteside in already wtf

Slug3
11-01-2015, 09:10 PM
Leave it to Wade to come in and kill all the chemistry. Lol

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 09:10 PM
dont throw away the game now wade

Mr. Baller
11-01-2015, 09:11 PM
Bring Whiteside in already wtf

Its gonna be tough because he really cant play Whiteside and Bosh together with the lineup the Rockets have right now. Will be interesting to see how Spo handles it down the stretch

Hardaway Here
11-01-2015, 09:11 PM
I don't like this stoppage the flow of the game has been in our favor

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 09:12 PM
Bring Whiteside in already wtf

Its gonna be tough because he really cant play Whiteside and Bosh together with the lineup the Rockets have right now. Will be interesting to see how Spo handles it down the stretch


Took bosh out

Good move

Cause Whiteside has been the best player in this game

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 09:13 PM
Harden is trash lol

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 09:14 PM
how do they call harden the best shooting guard in the league? The only thing ive seen him do today is shoot brick after brick after brick and get some free points from the refs

Hardaway Here
11-01-2015, 09:14 PM
Let Harden chuck away while we take this game

Mr. Baller
11-01-2015, 09:14 PM
Took bosh out

Good move

Cause Whiteside has been the best player in this game

Agreed. Bosh was on fire though but Hassan came to play tonight. Need to reward him when he plays like this

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 09:15 PM
alright give credit where credit is due. i did NOT expect this comeback at all

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 09:16 PM
holy **** dude this turnaround is sick

Slug3
11-01-2015, 09:16 PM
I can tell we are going to really like this Winslow guy.

Mr. Baller
11-01-2015, 09:16 PM
Unbelievable comeback.

Slug3
11-01-2015, 09:17 PM
how do they call harden the best shooting guard in the league? The only thing ive seen him do today is shoot brick after brick after brick and get some free points from the refs

He currently is. He's just having a bad shooting night. It happens.

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 09:17 PM
justice winslow is a BIG steal for us. that much is for sure

WaDe03
11-01-2015, 09:18 PM
Wade is the best SG in the league. Good *** comeback let's not give it away in the last 4 minutes. Win by 20 Miami.

Without free throws harden is rarely good

Mr. Baller

Can y'all give Spo credit for some fantastic halftime adjustments? If you guys gonna bash him every time we struggle, he deserves some praise as well.

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 09:20 PM

And some good adjustments

Hardaway Here

Keep on feasting Whiteside

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 09:23 PM
god i cant express how much i LOVE it when my favorite team beats the team i hate the most in the NBA. the fact that harden is sucking so hard makes it even 10000 times better. This feels great

Slug3
11-01-2015, 09:23 PM

I always love a good ole Spo bash. But today he really made some good adjustments.

He was worse in the 1st two games on the year lol

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 09:25 PM
Better without dragic

He needs to play with the 2nd unit

To take advantage of his skills

Slug3
11-01-2015, 09:25 PM
Wade making Whiteside happy for sure.

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 09:26 PM
omg that three finishes it off. my goodnes what a lovely game

Hardaway Here
11-01-2015, 09:26 PM
There you go Wade with a 3 something Harden should be doing better

justinnum1
11-01-2015, 09:28 PM
that was so fun to watch

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 09:29 PM
this is gonna be one of the best games of the season for sure. damn i'm impressed (by how bad the rockets are haha)

hotdalton18
11-01-2015, 09:31 PM
Tyler Johnson in 21 minutes

11/8/3

archdevil84
11-01-2015, 09:32 PM
i admit that TJ is a beast. but i dont think rio played bad this game. his turnovers were bad but his overall momentum building plays were realy good

WaDe03
11-01-2015, 09:32 PM

Yea gotta admit those were great adjustments tonight.

archdevil84

beasted86
11-01-2015, 09:32 PM
Great turnaround. Chalmers, Johnson and Winslow were the catalyst.

WaDe03
11-01-2015, 09:33 PM

Notes

Whiteside is a BEAST...we need to work to give him 12-15 shots a night...when he's shooting he's even more pumped to play defense


Wade shot was off but he was great with moving the ball and getting the assist

Dragic needs to come off the bench when Wade comes out to be able to use his skill set

Tyler Johnson better never get sat the whole game again...he can do it all

Bosh was pretty bad but got going in the 4th

Winslow is gonna be a SPECIAL talent...his defense is already amazing...the more he works in that shot the better he will get

Great turnaround. Chalmers, Johnson and Winslow were the catalyst.

And the MVP of the night

i admit that TJ is a beast. but i dont think rio played bad this game. his turnovers were bad but his overall momentum building plays were realy good

Chalmers was very good tonight. It isn't all about scoring.

He played good defense and lifted the tempo.

We held them to 26 points in the second half....and Winslow really did a number on James Harden and when he got by him there was Hassan to disrupt everything.....credit to Spo for finding the right lineup and ditching the spreadsheet.

We just need Dragic to get going.

11-01-2015, 09:42 PM
Whiteside should get more shots as you said Dalton but they should be shots like tonight. Lobs from Wade/Dragic or passes off of penetration. An occasional isolation play for him isn't bad especially if he has a big mismatch but he's more effective catching and dunking. Those plays also get the team hype and gets momentum going.

He does and he's showed it some over the past year but for the most part the jumpers have just been videos he posts in a gym with no defense lol. The hook is nice especially with his added confidence but our offense is better when we do as I mentioned above in my opinion.

I don't know what Spo and the coaching staff need to do, to get Dragic going; but its only game 3 so whatever.


And Wade seem sot be the only player we have that can connect with Whiteside... Playing with Shaq early in his career really helped him out.

And for some reason, Whiteside & Bosh are not playing off of each other good. We seem to play better when one of them is at the center spot and the other one is out...crazy.

Dragic came into camp out of shape (understandable since what is going on with his family), it might not take him 15-20 games just to get his legs under him. He played well with Wade last year with worse spacing, so I think he will be ok once he gets a month under his belt.

I was at the game, man it was crazy!!!

My thoughts:

-When things are rough the only hope in something special happening is when Wade has the ball in his hand. To think what we would do when he is out for any period of time this season is scary.

-Winslow is a solid defender, and he is so poised.

-Whiteside makes those dumps and monster dunks look easy, like childsplay. Wade recognizes this and keeps feeding him.

-Deng quietly played another solid game, I hope this continues through the season.

-Thankfully Stoudamire did not play and TJ really came through for us tonight!

-I hope that we giving Green the ball in the right spots again and while he is in rhythm, that's a big reason for the slump from 3 point land.

-lol @ the two scuffles that happened tonight

It seemed as if our best lineups included one big (Bosh, Whiteside) and 4 perimeter players (TJ, Winslow, Green, Wade, Rio,) now this could be just because the matchup dictated it or these type of lineups are the future of our success.......I think my favorite combination was Whiteside, Winslow, TJ, Wade, Rio.......even though we have one traditional big on the floor, TJ and Winslow crash the boards well enough to make up for the lack of "big" rebounders, the Wade/Whiteside "Pick and Roll" could be a nightmare potentially, the Whiteside/Winlsow defensive tandem could be the core of our defense for years to come...and if Winslow and Wade are hitting 3's it a whole new game on offense for us.....It could be one really good half of play or a sign of things to come.....at least for home games

Alright, it's time to stop with this "bring Dragic off the bench" rhetoric. We're paying him $85 million and he's by far our best PG. Give him time and he'll show all of you why he's getting paid the way he is...in the meantime, I hope Spo sticks with what he did last game. Really refreshing to see him ditch the spreadsheet....

11-02-2015, 06:46 PM
Really funny reading through all of the negative posts during the first half of the game, haha. Tremendous comeback.


And yeah we need to chill with the Goran benching talk. Mr. Baller is right, with what is happening with his family he wasn't physically or probably mentally prepared for the season to start. He will be just fine, he is an elite talent and he'll figure out a way to make it work.

beasted86
11-02-2015, 10:49 PM
This team needs an identity.

Are they committed to playing fast, small, big, or half court? Defensively are they protecting the paint or the 3 point line?

Can't just take the "take what they give us" approach. They need to go with a game plan that works and commit to a certain system and the fine tune how players will fit it.

Right now they are all over the place both offensively and defensively.

Offensively Dragic wants to play fast in an open court motion system and Wade wants to play half court and isolation post up guards or bigs, or even wing in the case of Deng or Winslow.

Defensively, Hassan is going under on every pick and roll as a natural shot blocker leaving guys wide open off the pick and roll for uncontested jumpers. Bosh, McRoberts and Haslem are hedging and recovering or trapping and leaving the roll man open underneath.

All this has to be really confusing for guys both offensively and defensively what they are supposed to be doing on any given play on either end. Hopefully they figure out soon.

But Dragic problem is he needs to have the ball , and that won't happen with Wade on the court

If you think about it... we have a team very similar to our 2006 championship squad... except better! Mainly starting with this wade/whiteside duo. It is much like the wade/shaq duo but with the roles inversed. This time around, wade is the seasoned vet and Whiteside is the young buck making noise in the league.

Dragic-JWill
Wade-Wade
Deng-Walker
Bosh-Haslem
Whiteside-Shaq

Chalmers-Payton
Winslow-Wright
Green-Posey
Bird-Zo
TJ-Kapono
McRoberts-Doleac

This time around... we are deeper and younger than in 2006.

We don't usually play good against the Hawks for some reason but I'm hoping to pull out this W. They don't really have a lockdown defender so I expect big nights from a few guys.

@ Minnesota we don't need to be lazy and think it'll be an easy win because they're actually starting off pretty well. I think we pull it out for our first road win.

@ Pacers we never win on their homecourt. I think it's time for that trend to end.
