We'll probably go 3-2 in this strech

SteBO
01-03-2016, 01:14 PM
Tonight's game is gonna be a *****. John Wall is a load Dragic has gotta deal with, and have enough energy to produce offensively. Wade/Bosh need to be aggressive and win their individual matchups and the defense needs to be sharp. Last time we played Washington we were a step slow all night.

WaDe03

^I wish.

WaDe03
01-03-2016, 04:47 PM
^Me too lol. Haven't even won 4 straight since LeBron. I don't see it happening if it hasn't already with his easy our schedule has been to start the year.

All-In

We really need to start beating Eastern conference teams.....hopefully Winslow can play today

WaDe03

Yea we do it's frustrating. I'm pretty sure he is.

01-03-2016, 07:35 PM
Still don't understand why Tyler Johnson doesn't start for Dragic

Dragic could still play all his minutes so don't start the max player crap

He should be on the floor anytime Wade is off the floor

SteBO
01-03-2016, 07:37 PM
Of course that Temple 3 went in....against Miami that's the norm.

WaDe03
01-03-2016, 07:39 PM
Of course that Temple 3 went in....against Miami that's the norm.

I swear every single shot in that situation seems to go in against us.

WaDe03
01-03-2016, 07:40 PM
Love the 3 point shooting lately. It definitely helps having Johnson back. Let's keep it up.

WaDe03
01-03-2016, 07:41 PM
10:50 left in the 2nd Wall has 2 fouls. Go at him.

WaDe03
01-03-2016, 07:44 PM
Pass the damn ball, Green.

WaDe03

Early in the season I would agree. Now Wade and Dragic have found a way to work it out and now that Dragic has been hitting his shots there's no need for a lineup change.

WaDe03
01-03-2016, 08:11 PM
Great first half. Let's not let this end up like Detroit and Brooklyn. Great activity in this forum tonight.

SteBO
01-03-2016, 08:14 PM
We've had a lot of great first halves before. Our problem has always been being able to sustain it for longer stretches like the elite teams do. I want to see us keep doing what we've been doing and not piss all over all the good things we've done up to this point. Keep it going!

SportsFanatic10
01-03-2016, 08:21 PM
Yep can't let up. The Heat don't play enough full games. They often start slow and try and get back in it late or start strong and blow the lead.

WaDe03
01-03-2016, 08:44 PM
Good third quarter so far haven't extended the league but also haven't given up the lead at all against a team playing desperate to get back in the game.

WaDe03
01-03-2016, 08:47 PM
Great close to the 3rd. Both Dragic and Johnson have outplayed Wall tonight.

beasted86
01-03-2016, 08:50 PM
Dragić is just so insane in transition

01-03-2016, 08:54 PM
Man, I hope the team really did turn over a new leaf and this is how we see them play every night from now on.

I want to say they have but I can't lol. Not enough consistency with it yet but I definitely hope it continues.

Man, I hope the team really did turn over a new leaf and this is how we see them play every night from now on.

There's no way they play like this every night from now on, but I'd be more than happy if they can mostly play like this at least.

WaDe03
01-03-2016, 09:02 PM
Wade and Whiteside have off scoring nights but still had positive impacts on the game. We're still going to win by close to 30 with them having off nights. This team has so much potential to be dangerous.

Mr. Baller
01-03-2016, 09:10 PM
Damn i take a nap and we're over 27. Might have to do that more often

SteBO
01-03-2016, 09:28 PM
Man, I hope the team really did turn over a new leaf and this is how we see them play every night from now on.
That would be sweet. And we did what we did tonight with Wade being more or less subdued offensively. As WaDe03 stated, the Heat have the potential to do great things this year. They just need to be a lot more consistent.

Dade County
01-03-2016, 10:09 PM
Man, I hope the team really did turn over a new leaf and this is how we see them play every night from now on.

It seems like most of the league is playing to their true potential.

It's refreshing, it's go time.

Teams like Miami, Cavs & the Bulls will start running away record wise from this lackluster pack.

Tonight we played like a championship caliber team.

01-04-2016, 03:22 AM
Please beat the Pacers tomorrow. I hate losing to them and were the better team. Let's go out and prove it tomorrow night.

unleashthebeast
01-04-2016, 02:25 PM
I live in DC so I went to the game last night, it was a great time! Heat fans were getting it haha, the Wizards fans were absolutely dead.

The Wiz fans that were around me were really pissed off at Birdman though for shooting those 3s in garbage time :laugh2: they thought that it was a blatant slap in the face, and wanted one of their players to go after him lol.

WaDe03
01-04-2016, 07:01 PM
McRoberts out (surprise) wtf is the deal with that guy? Whiteside doubtful so looks like another L against the Pacers.

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 08:51 PM
awwwyeah birdman is back! i still love him!

McRoberts out (surprise) wtf is the deal with that guy? Whiteside doubtful so looks like another L against the Pacers.

ive been wondering this for quite a while. apparently he got injured in the lakers game but he was stil playing after that. Like i've said before, i wouldnt be surprised if we got the news he's gonna be out for the season
next week

Wade n Fade
01-04-2016, 08:54 PM
Play the damn game lol. We shot the lights out of practice. Our guys are ready to kick Pusser ***.

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 08:54 PM
lol what is this? light problems, this game better start fast

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 08:57 PM
i've got a fcking exam tomorrow. the only reason i can afford to watch this stupid basketball match is because i was planning to keep learning the whole night anyway

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 09:11 PM
what a fantastic start

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 09:12 PM
the pacers have made 3 3 pointers from jr smith range. i hate it when opponents make those kind of horrible shots against us

WaDe03
01-04-2016, 09:12 PM
Great start.

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 09:13 PM
fcking bulshit. how do they make those threes?

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 09:22 PM

God damn Dragic to Wade!

SportsFanatic10
01-04-2016, 09:24 PM
Nice play for sure! It's been good to see Wade and Dragic starting to click together more recently.

SportsFanatic10
01-04-2016, 09:28 PM
Miles just dislocated his shoulder it seems like there. If that's the case that'll hurt the Pacers, he's been playing well for them this year.

01-04-2016, 09:30 PM
Spin cycle!

WaDe03
01-04-2016, 09:34 PM
When Winslow shoots it's basically a turnover. Good defense but absolutely no offense.

WaDe03
01-04-2016, 09:47 PM
Winslow is 24% on 3s and has 2 misses tonight. That's terrible but better than I thought. I wish there was a way to make him at least somewhat effective on offense.

WaDe03
01-04-2016, 09:50 PM
These refs are ****ing terrible.

WaDe03
01-04-2016, 09:51 PM
Our 3s are terrible tonight.

SteBO
01-04-2016, 09:57 PM
Aside from that outburst to start the game, our defense has been very good so far. We just need one of Wade/Bosh to really get going.

WaDe03

They're trying to make up for their terrible officiating against us.

SteBO
01-04-2016, 10:13 PM
We let the Pacers off the hook way too much, especially Wade. Against PG, Wade loves to take fadeaway jumpers, and for no reason. He needs to go at the guy.....

WaDe03
01-04-2016, 10:26 PM
Started the 3rd the same way we did the 1st. I doubt we'll win this one.

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 10:28 PM

i agree. our defense can only hold us for so long but if we cant score were not gonna win

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 10:29 PM
theyre not explosive and attacking enough. against those physical defenses like indiana you HAVE to attack. settling for jumpers is never gonna work

WaDe03
01-04-2016, 10:31 PM
This ones over. Wades playing like a *****.

WaDe03
01-04-2016, 10:32 PM
I hope to god we don't play them in the playoffs. They'll beat us in 5 at the most.

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 10:32 PM
wade cant do **** vs PG. PG is just to good against us

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 10:33 PM
like i said, the defense is crumbling right now and our offense is stil sucking balls

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 10:34 PM
honestly though, i cant imagine defending wade is very difficult. only thing you cant do is bite on his pumpfakes. just be a little physical and he's gonna jack up mid range jumpers the rest of the game

SteBO
01-04-2016, 10:37 PM
In a league where pace and space is engulfing the NBA, we play entirely too slow and aren't consistent enough shooting the ball. And Birdman is now a -17 on the floor. Useless.

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 10:41 PM
wade misses a wide open point blank layup

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 10:43 PM
i like what spo is doing here with wade though. back when lebron was on the team whenever wade got hot spoelstrs ALWAYS pulled him from the game. he literally could have made 4 straight jumpers and he would stil get jacked the next timeout. now he's playing wel this quarter and spo is using him

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 10:44 PM
random scrub who plays like an all star against the miami heat of the night: jordan hill

WaDe03
01-04-2016, 10:49 PM
See what happens when you're aggressive Wade? Too bad he won't check back in until the game is already lost in the 4th. I go the starters minus Birdman with 8 or 9 minutes left. Either Winslow or Green should be in that group depending on if green is hot or not.

WaDe03
01-04-2016, 10:52 PM
Birdman has played 10 minutes and is a -24. Now we know why he doesn't play.

WaDe03
01-04-2016, 10:52 PM
Green quit ****ing up and taking stupid shots.

Mr. Baller

He's not gonna change the rotation especially on the second night of a back to back

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 11:04 PM
lets hope wade isnt gonna fck it all up when he comes back

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 11:05 PM
get the fcking rebound and defend fcking PG. wtf

WaDe03
01-04-2016, 11:06 PM

01-04-2016, 11:07 PM
Way to many second chances for them and missed free throws may lose it for us.

archdevil84

01-04-2016, 11:12 PM
Costly turnovers man damn.

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 11:15 PM
paul george is so damn frightening. hes like one of those players youre just afraid of lategame, just like a paul pierce or manu giniboli. those guys just hit those impossible clutch shots

WaDe03
01-04-2016, 11:17 PM
We can't get a call on our home court this **** is crazy.

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 11:18 PM
big shot CB!

Bad shot Wade and bad defense.

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 11:20 PM
wade better make this final shot to win the game here. he's fcking it up like i predicted already

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 11:22 PM
what kind of shot is that? jesus christ

WaDe03
01-04-2016, 11:22 PM
We drew that **** up out of a timeout. Terrible shot Bosh.

WaDe03
01-04-2016, 11:25 PM
Let's gooooooooo! Wade is clutch as ****. Play smart ball in overtime and get the win.

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 11:25 PM
FFS eric reid i actually thought the game was won lol. stil a great play. FINALLY spo does something good. that was a GREAT play. wel executed by wade

Mr. Baller
01-04-2016, 11:26 PM
Paul George makes the same mistake again!

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 11:26 PM
thats a fcking tough shot to make. NICE finish from wade

WaDe03
01-04-2016, 11:27 PM
I just had déjà vu of the LeBron play!

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 11:27 PM

lol damn thats right. i already forgot about him overcommiting vs bron. that was so awesome. guess he hasnt learned from it

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 11:34 PM
this is turning out to be a game of the year. whether we win or lose. i compliment both teams for their effort and hustle

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 11:35 PM
too bad wade misses that free throw and then ellis comes back and makes a and on of his own

Mr. Baller
01-04-2016, 11:36 PM
Need to get Dragic involved in the offense. He is too good to be a decoy every time during crunch time

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 11:38 PM
terrible possesion

archdevil84
01-04-2016, 11:39 PM
ugh thats a very tough call

Mr. Baller
01-04-2016, 11:39 PM
Don't get why Bosh isn't shooting the open threes in OT. Cost us a shot clock

Mr. Baller
01-04-2016, 11:40 PM
1. Why did wade go so early?
2. Thank you Justice

archdevil84

Man Wade got away with such a foul. But I'll take it.

we deserve it at this point

Mr. Baller
01-04-2016, 11:42 PM
God damn we really couldn't get this to 2 possession game

Slug3
01-04-2016, 11:42 PM
Bosh could have ended the game there.

For the love of my innards......ONE STOP!!! Don't overreact to the drive!

Mr. Baller
01-04-2016, 11:43 PM
Need to foul here. Dont let them get a shot off

Mr. Baller
01-04-2016, 11:45 PM
Especially with no timeouts you have to foul if they get it in

Mr. Baller
01-04-2016, 11:46 PM

Justice Winslow deserves a **** ton of credit. He really iced PG. What a win for the Heat.

WaDe03
01-04-2016, 11:49 PM
Good *** game and great effort after being down 18. People want to bash Wade for hero ball but made the game tying basket and don't want to praise him for his effort and that tip to Bosh. It is what it is though. Bosh and Wade were huge in the 4th and OT.

WaDe03

2nd best defense against George this year other than Kawhi.

Wade hit a clutch layup in regulation and made a great tip at the end. He also took a terrible shot with 10 seconds left in OT. When there is only a 3 second differential between shot clock and game clock and the team isn't fouling, you hold it till last possible second to shoot.

That being said great win and Wade was huge tonight.

We saw the best and worst of Wade in late game situations tonight for sure, and that's gonna continue to be a problem for us as long as Dragic isn't involved offensively. He's the point guard and there's no reason we should be phasing him out late in games. He's a fantastic offensive weapon and to under utilize him the way we have is criminal. To me, that's our next step.

Absolutely agreed. It can't be just D-Wade and Bosh down the stretch

Absolutely agreed. It can't be just D-Wade and Bosh down the stretch

Yea adding Dragic would be huge. Also hurt not having Whiteside for pick n roll purposes. I think it's still just a trust issue thing with Dragic which will get better if he keeps playing like he has lately.

archdevil84
01-05-2016, 12:33 PM
i cant get enough of seeing wade tie the game with that layup. what an awesome game

WaDe03
01-05-2016, 04:38 PM
Can't lie I'm nervous about this Whiteside injury. They said it's his patella tendon and he could be out a while. If that's the case I say we go small ball or something. Birdman was god awful for the team last night. A -24 in only 10 minutes is about as bad as it gets. Unless we try Amare or something which I also doubt will work. Would help a lot if McRoberts would come back but who knows what the deal is with him?

Same...the only thing that helps ease my mind a bit is when asked about if he's worried about an extended absence his responde was "no, i'm not". But we'll see...

Yea he also said its just sore and not swelling so I don't think there's a tear. You know when someone hurts their knee around here their going to be out at least 20 games.

SteBO
01-06-2016, 08:33 AM
Well with Hassan likely to be out a little while, we're gonna be playing a lot smaller. And honestly, this sounds like a good time to maybe start Bosh at the 5 and perhaps start Justice at the 4.

Well with Hassan likely to be out a little while, we're gonna be playing a lot smaller. And honestly, this sounds like a good time to maybe start Bosh at the 5 and perhaps start Justice at the 4. I'm only proposing this because McBob is out, who've I've lost all hope for. Also, Bird is done and starting him is a trainwreck.

He may actually be back as soon as tonight they're saying. He had an MRI that showed some tendinitis and Whiteside said there's an 80% chance he'll play tonight.

Yea they had me worried too lol. Don't forget Afflalo he's been playing great lately. Our main focus should be stopping Melo, Afflalo, and Kristaps. If we can force 2 of them into rough nights it should look a lot like the last 2 games. They're coming off 2 straight wins against the Hawks so we can't take them lightly.

SteBO

We've got to play a lot better in the second half. They're defense is locking up everyone not named Wade or Bosh.

WaDe03
01-06-2016, 09:08 PM
Dragic hasn't scored and the bench hasn't been too good other than Johnson. Looks like Wade and Bosh are going to have to do what they did last game and dig us out of this whole. At least their lead isn't as big as the Pacers and their team isn't as good as the Pacers. We'll see what Heat team shows up in the 2nd half.

SteBO
01-06-2016, 09:11 PM
We just need to play better. Knicks not hitting garbage *** shots would help too. That said, this is another case of the team coming off a back to back is playing with a lot more energy than we are.

They only review missed calls at the end of games, and ignore all the bull**** Indiana got away with, so I don't really care what the league says. Refs miss calls, they're human. Anyway, this game is on our lack of shooting and an idiotic defensive gameplan individually. Whoever was responsible for Robin Lopez should forfeit their games' salary. Our "shooters" should forfeit their game salaries too. It was pretty bad to watch. It happens though...

Yea I agree if we insist on playing half court then we need guys like Teletovic and a guy known as a sharpshooter but we don't have that. Wade looks a lot faster this year than recently and as you can see by tonight and other plays this season has increased his vertical. Deng also looks comfortable running. I feel like it's been Dragic Wade and Deng the ones finishing fast breaks in the starting unit. Almost all of our players can run if we committed to it I think but we should mix it up. Run some play half court some.

The more the 4th quarter benchings happen the more I think he'll be traded but who knows?

its really incredible that he only has 10 career assists, compared to 132 turnovers.

Physically he is a beast, probably the most impressive player in the NBA when it comes to physique. But I don't see much in the way of actual basketball skills or BB IQ.
