Aww hell. The Miami Heat blew out the Wizards tonight to finish their season at 41-41, but they missed the playoffs by a hair as the Pacers and Bulls both won tonight. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra is usually good for a fairly even-keeled postgame interview, but tonight he gave just the saddest speech after the loss. It…
Tonight, the last night of the NBA’s regular season, will settle the Eastern Conference’s seventh and eighth playoff seeds, the last two unsettled spots in the postseason. The Miami Heat, currently sitting in ninth thanks to tiebreakers, can claim one of those spots, technically, but almost certainly won’t. That sucks.
The LeBron James-less Cleveland Cavaliers coughed up another fourth-quarter lead tonight and lost in overtime to the Miami Heat. The result gives the Boston Celtics the first seed in the Eastern Conference and keeps the Miami Heat’s playoff hopes alive. It’s also utterly demoralizing for the Cavs.
The Miami Heat’s James Johnson dunked on Marcus Morris so hard in Tuesday’s game against the Pistons that Morris’s twin brother Markieff probably felt it, too.
Kyrie Irving somehow managed to shake Rodney McGruder, skip his way to the hoop, and deliver a gem of a reverse layup during tonight’s game against the Heat.
You’re about to watch a defensive effort by 76ers center Jahlil Okafor. Be warned: It is the softest, wet-noodliest defense you’ll ever see in your dang life.
Ever since he somehow survived Larry Nance, Jr. dropping a piano on his head, Brook Lopez has been biding his time, waiting patiently for an opportunity to earn his soul back from the basketball gods. That time came in the third quarter of Friday night’s game against the Miami Heat; in related news, Rodney McGruder is…
Considering green-light incarnate Dion Waiters drained a pair of game-winners in the past week, it seems natural that the human heat check would be feeling himself a little bit. After putting both the Warriors and the Nets in the garbage and averaging 22.4 points over his last five games, the Miami Heat guard spoke…
Dion Waiters has never met a contested three-pointer that he didn’t want to kiss on the mouth, and somehow, that tendency has helped him knock in a pair of game-winners this week against the Golden State Warriors and the Brooklyn Nets, the opposite of the Golden State Warriors.
How lucky was this Heat fan? Not only did she win a spa gift card, she also avoided the booby prize of getting turned into a pancake thanks to the Heat’s shoddy craftsmanship.
The Counter-Strike players for the esports organization Team SoloMid have all left following a dispute with owners over which leagues they could play in. Instead, the squad have all joined with Misfits, an organization that just this week announced its new partnership with the Miami Heat.
The Miami Heat have mostly been a mess this season. An already janky roster has suffered injuries everywhere, and only a truly monster season from Hassan Whiteside and a few splendid Goran Dragic games have kept the Heat from having perhaps the worst record in the Eastern Conference. Oh, and also James Johnson.
Today the Miami Heat announced that they will be retiring Shaquille O’Neal’s jersey. This would be the most unspectacular bit of news except that the game in which the Heat have chosen to hoist Shaq’s jersey to the rafters can’t possibly have been an accident:
Five days after Pat Riley announced that Chris Bosh’s career with the Miami Heat was over, Bosh has responded—vowing to return to the NBA and saying that Riley did not tell him about the team’s decision before sharing it with the media.
A few days after Chris Bosh failed a physical because of ongoing complications with blood clotting, Miami Heat president Pat Riley told reporters that Bosh’s Heat career is likely over.
According to various local reports, Chris Bosh failed a pre-training camp physical after instances of clotting were discovered in his blood work. Per the Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson, the clotting is “believed to be related to one of two previous blood clot episodes” that forced Bosh to stop playing in each of the…
The Miami Heat begin training camp in six days. It’s unclear, exactly, if Chris Bosh will be there, or if he is, to what extent he will be participating. Bosh, who believes he is healthy enough to play, has been applying pressure to the Heat this offseason, and he is now pressing even harder as the season inches…
