Game 15: Miami Heat at Portland Trail Blazers

Another nightmare matchup for our middling Heat, as Udonis Haslem follows up his unfair face-off with Yao Ming with a dose of the Blazers' big and deep frontcourt. Haslem checked LaMarcus Aldridge...

Shawn Marion Will Miss Wednesday's Game

Heat forward Shawn Marion will miss Wednesday's game at Portland after the death of a great-uncle. Meanwhile Dorell Wright, the man who should be stepping in in Marion's absence, is having continued problems with his knee.

Like the Portland game on ESPN earlier this year, last night's game was one this Heat roster simply can't win as constructed. Yao Ming's 28 points and 11 rebounds was more than enough against a...

Game 13: Indiana Pacers at Miami Heat

Speedy Beasley Cited in D.C.

+

Heat rookie Michael Beasley was cited for speeding Monday night in his hometown of Washington D.C. Big deal. But you've got to love this quote: The 19-year-old said he initially shut off his cell phone upon his Sunday arrival in Washington, but later conceded, "I went back around my neighborhood and hung out with the people that were trying to call. So I kind of defeated the purpose." He's odd.

Three-Way Blockbuster Would Clear Knicks' Cap Space

+

Newsday is reporting that a major three-team trade is on the verge of completion. New York would clear the contracts of Zach Randolph and Jamal Crawford, along with Mardy Collins, by sending Randolph to the Clippers and Crawford to the Warriors. The contracts of the players returning - Al Harrington, Tim Thomas and Cuttino Mobley - all expire in time for the Knicks to have massive cap space in 2010. This should concern Heat fans not just because it adds a marquee franchise to the growing list of 2010 shoppers, but also because it creates a potential suitor for our own Dwyane Wade should the Knicks lose out on LeBron James.

Toronto Raptors 101, Miami Heat 95

Now that's a three-forward lineup. Toronto's unfair front line of Chris Bosh, Jermaine O'Neal and Andrea Bargnani laid waste to Miami's flawed frontcourt, negating a magnificent effort from Dwyane...

HoopsAddict Game Notes: Wizards-Heat

+

A lot of Wizards stuff in there, but some good Heat information as well. Such as: Washington Wizards head coach Eddie Jordan made an excellent observation about Dwyane Wade and the rest of the NBA players who played on the Olympic Team in Beijing this past summer. Jordan said that all of the players on the squad have come into the 2008-2009 season with a renewed commitment to playing defense. When Team USA was coming up short prior to the Beijing Olympics, the defense was shaky and the effort was even shakier. This year Coach K and his coaching staff did a tremendous job in getting the team to lockdown defense the entire game and as Coach Jordan mentioned the carryover is noticeable.

Miami Heat 94, Washington Wizards 87

Solid enough. Every road win is a good road win in the NBA, even if it comes against the lowly Wiz. Miami's back on the fun side of .500 in what I still expect to be a season spent toggling between...

Hoops Addict in the Heat Locker Room

Hoops Addict's Ryan McNeill ventured into the Miami locker room before Sunday's loss at Toronto. Here's Erik Spoelstra on Michael Beasley: "He’s still 19-years-old and he will grow. Our focus right now, and we’re not going to back off of it, is we need more defense from him. He’s got a lot on his plate out there and he’s making progress." More at the link above.
