ZechMerquise

we shot better than the bucks in 3s, and even in pts in the paint. We lost cos we missed quite a number of free throws (14/21), which is a bit of surprise since we are top 3 in the league in ft percentage

Reality czech

The Heat played fast tonight and very efficiently. Richardson is playing some of the best basketball I’ve ever seen him play. Jaquez is looking great and looks like he can eventually slide into the pg spot and at 6’6”, that would give him an advantage over most pg in the league. Martin is clearly over his knee issues, for now. Lowry has really stepped up (so much for waiving him). Bam is having an all nba year. We could have used more from Duncan tonight, and Love is really not a starter. But if we can build on what they showed tonight, anything is possible.

Bout30man

I understand everyone is proud as we fought hard, played a great team evenly till the end. But, with the age of some of our players, this is likely to happen all season. That is why it is imperative we get more help to support the very good team we have. Also, it works to help us in that if we have more players to help carry the load, we won’t be as dependent on just a few players. And, players won’t wear down and need as much load management. Now that the season has progressed, we know what we have more. We know that Jimmy, Bam, Kyle, Jamie, Duncan, Ty, Caleb and JRich are all good to great players that can contribute a lot. But, the problem is, that’s just eight. When they are all there, we can play with anyone. But, so often at least one is out. The rest of our team is marginal, possibly ORob could emerge, but we don’t know that yet. But, it is a certainty that we need more.

Reality czech

I agree and still believe a trade would help. I’d also add Highsmith to that group as a good, not great player.

Bout30man

Maybe on HH, maybe not. He has disappeared a few times and had a couple reasonably positive games. His defense has been good, but he has to hit the occasional three to really contribute, which he does every once in a while. Let’s hope he keeps getting better but the jury is still out on whether he adds enough on the offensive side.

heat for life

the heat have enough 30.u said that last week.u flip flop alot about the heat.w/o jim ty they went toe to toe with a healthy bucks team.they have the best depth theyve had since the big 3.only problem is when u walk onto the ct vs milw they have the two best players

Reality czech

Last week, before we lost those two stinkers against the Knicks and Nets, I wrote that an important measure was going to be if we could be competitive against the best teams. Tonight, despite being shorthanded, they played a heck of a game. Does it help in the win loss column? No. But it shows we’re moving in the right direction. For those that don’t understand the concept, too bad.

heat for life

again sir w/o cursing at u that is loser talk we know we have a good team.were in the finals or ecf like every butler year.chill out my man u have a very foul mouth hope u dont yell at your wife like that

Reality czech

It’s loser talk to you, obviously not to everybody. I’m looking for progress on this team and that’s what we got tonight.
You need not concern yourself with my family. I regret my outburst, but I don’t appreciate you suggesting I or my team are losers.

ManilaHeat

Some fans just want Ws. Even being the 8th seed and still going to the finals but falling short, its a losing season for them. Sad every fan base have those.

Reality czech

Yes, that’s true. I suppose it’s a reality check for Reality Czech 😀. I shall endeavor to be better at deflecting the negativity.

Alien

I am proud of this team. This loss is nothing compared to that Knick’s loss. Am I the only one who thinks that Miami does not get its fair share of calls.

Big_guy305

Refs missed a ton of calls, even ones in front of their face. Even Shaq and Reggie was calling them out.

heat for life

moving screen on bam only bad call i can recollect

heat for life

if middleton gets back to his all star level there the fav in the east.

ManilaHeat

Going toe to toe with Milw w/out Butler. Hope we see them in playoffs. Good game sucks we lost but we’re just equals with these so-called top east contender

Big_guy305

Without herro too, next time we will beat them and that trash D. Giannis ft shooting was an anomaly.

Mao

Trash heat *** my parlay.

2qbn

Be a better gambler

Big_guy305

You dumb for even making the bet with all our injuries.

Reality czech

So this cultural revolution didn’t work out for you, I guess.

heat for life

good effort do we get a half a win for that

Big_guy305

Win or lose..Miami heat played there heart out. I loved the effort, all It took for bucks to win was hot shooting from 3, questionable calls from the refs, and Giannis hitting 8 of 11 from ft.

Zachary Kap

Tough loss. Offense was on fire most of the night. Couple plays that stand out, that might have changed it – Bam’s missed dunk, where the ball slipped and Duncan’s oop to Bam, that he just couldn’t quite reach. Bam played amazing, but I think he makes those type of plays nearly all the time.

Also free throws. Miami has been on fire from the line – and struggled a bit tonight., missing 7.

Hopefully we get a game here soon with Jimmy and Bam (and who knows maybe Herro will be back soon too).

Big_guy305

Yes those missed opportunities from bam was uncharacteristic, and probably could of changed the outcome, but he played amazing regardless.

Reality czech

Missed 7 free throws, lost by 7.

2qbn

Ran out of steam. Damn. Great effort but this sucks

Bout30man

Great effort but it hurts. Bucks have so many scorers.

Big_guy305

All we was missing was 2 more of our scorers .

heat for life

ball game good effort yeah right that means alot lol

Reality czech

Looked like Lillard stepped on the line

heat for life

josh that was stupid

Big_guy305

Leave it to the refs to ruin the game

2qbn

Apparently Bucks can travel all game

Big_guy305

heat for life

Reality czech

I know we want this win, but outstanding effort by the good guys

heat for life

lowrys got the clutch gene

Big_guy305

Lowry I love yah

Zachary Kap

Clutch shot.

Big_guy305

We need it without jimmy

Zachary Kap

Martin has looked a bit more comfortable in this game. Maybe getting into a better rhythm now that he’s healthy.

Big_guy305

Yes bam

2qbn

Reggie, the game is intense because these teams don’t like each other not because of the tourney

Alaska Emily

Put Caleb in, he immediately gets a clutch bucket and a clutch steal.

Let’s Go Caleb

Big_guy305

Martin spincycle

Reality czech

Martin!

2qbn

Filthy

2qbn

Putting the scores at the top of the screen as if it’s important. So damn stupid

Reality czech

Absolutely!

heat for life

thought there was something wrong with my tv

Zachary Kap

I’m so glad I was wrong about drafting Jaquez. He’s been fun to watch.

Big_guy305

I’m glad to be wrong too, I’ll gladly eat some crow

Reality czech

Jaquez is one bad mother-shut yo mouth!

2qbn

Don’t like the energy right now

Big_guy305

Robinson took Giannis off the dribble lmao

Zachary Kap

Duncan Herro has been an interesting turn of events this season. He’s showing passing and to a lesser extent ball handling I don’t think any of us expected

Big_guy305

Yes he has, even Reggie Miller told him he needs to get better, just a testament to his work ethic.

Reality czech

It really looks like the Heat are grooming Jaquez for pg

Reality czech

And I like the idea

Big_guy305

He has the vision and pace for it .

Big_guy305

Beasley shoots lights out

Big_guy305

They must have this deaf football commercial on spam, feel like I seen it 100 times sheesh.

2qbn

Damn this game is straight May day

Big_guy305

Bam has gotta be on the all nba team

Reality czech

Reggie nailed it – “you are seeing basketball at a high level “.

Big_guy305

JJJ VISION

Big_guy305

Robinson coming alive

Big_guy305

Lucky ass 3

2qbn

Straight BS!

Big_guy305

ManilaHeat
