    Right when you thought the dude couldn't play any worse. Maybe he needs to be sent to Sioux Falls for a month to rebuild his confidence or something.
    He's totally useless if his shot isn't falling. I don't know if his routine has failed or work ethic or what. But Miami is too top heavy for him not to produce.

    And whadya know.....dude has a pulse. 4/7 last night from 3. Lowry got going too. Here's to hoping it's the start of a turnaround for them both.

    Yurt made a noticeable impact too in 19 min. Scored 12, grabbed 5 boards (would've liked more), and he held Sabonis down in 2nd half. He had rough moments, but I was pretty encouraged. Hope Spo let's him play through some stuff.

    This season has kind of been in a tailspin with Morris in hiding, Jimmy's injury, Bam's injury and Duncan sucking......but man was that game last night sweet as hell lol

    For starters it was national televised on ESPN, the Bucks basically had all their guys back healthy, they were 11-0 when Giannis/Middleton/Jrue played and we were playing without Bam/Jimmy...and yet the G-League All-Stars and some old dudes outplayed the Bucks

    Max Strus outperforms Duncan far too often for a guy making $18 million per year, Duncan needs to start playing better just for trade value purposes at this point, and Caleb Martin is steadily becoming a reliable rotation guy, he's going to get his two-way contract converted at some point this season but that doesn't mean he's our "15th man", we can still cut Omer Yurtseven and go after a buyout market guy

    The game vs the Bucks might've been a blip on the radar with Jimmy/Bam out but god it was a great Miami Heat win

    Definitely much needed.

    I think Miami just needs to get healthy and we'll see what they're really made of. Oladipo can add a new dimension to what Martin is giving us if healthy. Morris back will help the defense and small ball lineups. We definitely need Duncan to wake the heck up for good.

    Yeah, I can't believe I'm actually saying this but we really need Morris back healthy lol

    With Bam out our frontcourt is so thin, we're relying way too heavily on PJ Tucker, I don't want to do what Houston did and wear him down during the season so come postseason he has no legs...IDK whats going on with Morris but we need him back ASAP

    Well, Miami is staying afloat even with the injuries. Spo is doing a good job getting guys ready. It's encouraging to think about the team at full strength if it ever happens.

    Can't imagine how rusty VO, Morris and Bam may be though.

    Miami getting desperate! Mario Chalmers is back on a 10-day contact.

    How on earth is Caleb Martin on a 2-way contract?? Dude looks like a legit playoff rotation member. I thought his good stretch was a fluke, but he's been doing this for almost every game now. His defense and hustle plays are as expected (which means Miami HEAT good), but his offense is surprisingly smooth. Dude can put the ball down to attack the basket and is a GREAT finisher at the rim, run the floor effortlessly, read the plays well, make 3's at a decent rate and is showing a pull-up game. On top of that, he doesn't do anything stupid. I can confidently say he's a better than Derrick Jones Jr was for us, and is on his way to become better than Jae Crowder too. Look him up now Pat!

    Yurtseven has been playing great too but I'm not sold on him yet. Dude's a rebound magnet but he also steals a lot of boards from teammates too. Hopefully he doesn't have the negative aspects of Hassan Whiteside.

    2-way contracts gave us a lot of gems lately. Who needs draft picks if the scouting and players development are this good!

    Just realized that Caleb is already 26 (thought he was way younger). But then, PJ Tucker didn't leave his mark in the league until age 27.

    BTW, Tucker is a winning player that every team dies for. I thought we overpaid for a 36 year-old role player, but now I know why! Actually his contract is kinda cheap now compared to what he brings to this team. He's a way better fit to this team than Iguodala was.

    Perfect trade 3 teams Miami sends Duncan Robinson, Kief and Okpala to Houston\OKC for Eric Gordon and Mike Muscala. That team has no weakness championship book it

    Miami's roster is about to get really expensive. I agree they should trade Duncan, but for an expiring contract ir player with just 1 extra year remaining instead.

    Last year I floated the idea of Robinson for Terrence Ross. I still think that's a solid trade. Does a lot of what Caleb Martin does, but more explosive scoring since he can go for 25+ points regularly.

    I'm also looking forward to seeing if Miami has long term plans for Oladipo. Whether that means keeping him around long term, or using him in a sign and trade (problem is that hard caps them).

    I agree on Yurtseven somewhat, but we have to be patient and remember he's a rookie. He can definitely be better down the line. I like the foundation so far.

    Excited for Miami's ability to keep their payroll low, they just have to remember they can't sign everyone. Just like they let Nunn go, they've gotta make hard decisions on who to pay and who you let go.

    Robinson so far is looking like a guy they should have let go.
