    Over the last month Portland is 9-1 with a +7.5 net efficiency rating and 2 wins vs GSW in that stretch

    Call it what you will but thats pretty good

    It looks like we're going to be without Wade and Whiteside in Portland, maybe longer

    IDK if it was the match-up or back-to-back for Washington but we looked really good without Whiteside....It'll be interesting to see how the Bam/Olynyk tandem does vs Portland.....and no Wade should mean more minutes for Mcgruder

    He's been complaining about wanting more minutes all season

    Obviously he wants to play
    Beyond his tone, he was basically excluding himself from the entire west coast road trip before seeing how he feels.

    Whether he meant what he was saying literally or not I'm not sure. But it's not my fault if I'm taking his words at face value.

    For a hip strain he's like 'not sure if it's worth flying over there if it might get worse'. Like, really?

    Portland is a good home team on a 9 game winning streak, and on the season Miami is 3-10 against West playoff teams.

    Just being realistic.

    If they can escape that game without any more injuries and don't get completely embarrassed I'll be fine with that.

    I don't think we win all 3 on this road trip. I would be perfectly happy winning 2 of 3.

    We absolutely have to win the Sacramento game. The Portland and LA games won't be easy. Portland is hot and the Lakers are playing a lot better recently too. They already killed us at home and they just dropped 127 on the Cavs last night. I would hope we could make some adjustments for this game after our performance against them last time.

    We're probably going to drop all 3 games.

    Lakers are much improved and playing at home.

    Dragić is a good player, but he's not a workhorse superstar. Can't expect him to just pick up everyone else's slack and drop 40 when the offense lulls.

    Offense is so putrid you and Ellington to take 17 off balance 3s.

    We also have no defense. Babbitt blew multiple rotations along with Kelly. Bam wasn't a match for a saavy vet but the effort was there which I love.

    Lucky for us Detroit is no threat without Reggie.

    Games like this, I believe Waiters would have finish the game off.

    Winslow 38min, 4-12, -7, 10pts. I mean wtf, you can't even have success against a team like the Kings. I really don't get like this, but if he isn't traded this off season, I'm just always going to have something negative to say about the front office.

    He has to go, or Spo has to go, because NO sane coach would keep playing a player that has this type of negative production.

    Bye Winslow, in my mind you are done.

    Winslow has been very good lately, he's going to have bad games every now and then.

    Babbit shouldn't be in the NBA, let alone starting on a team.

    I mean I can't be too mad about this loss, they should've won when they went up 4 with a minute left but Kelly choked on a free throw. They were down 13 with 6 minutes left and fought back to take the lead. In the end 3 of their top 4 players were out, not much they could do.

    No Wade Whiteside or JRich though, take 3 of the top 4 off of any team and it will be a short playoffs.

    Winslow has been better recently but he still can't make layups. It blows my mind how many layups (especially easy layups) he misses. He has no touch around the hoop at all. I don't think I've ever seen an NBA player have that much trouble making layups.

    The Heat definitely blew it at the end after going up 4 with like a minute to go. JJ got the offensive foul, we allow them to hit a 3, we waste a possession with Dragic dribbling around into a shot clock violation, and finally Olynyk misses the free throw to put us up 3. It was a great comeback but they couldn't finish it off unfortunately. They were playing without 3 of their 4 best players though so that definitely was a factor.

    Miami HEAT Game Thread 2017/18 Season

    8th seed is better for us tbh

    NBA is gonna use refs to cheat for both Boston and Cavs

    Might give us a fair shot vs Raptors
