heat for life

rockets have won 11 in a row at home cant believe that

Reality Czech

Cain with more minutes tonight – 28 – than he’s probably played combined up to this point. Bravo!

heat for life

he got j richs minutes if jrich healthy cain dnp and spo gave jim 4th qtr off

heat for life

anybody can see jamals got game just needs spo minutes.the man in charge prefers others

Reality Czech

So the point is, Cain got an opportunity and made the most of it. He belongs. But who would you have Spo remove from the rotation?? Everyone else has played well enough to continue. Bam, Butler, Duncan, Herro (soon), Lowry, Martin, Love, Jaquez, Richardson, Highsmith, O Robinson, Bryant. That’s 12. So, the reality is Cain must wait his turn for now.
It’s why I still feel strongly that the Heat need to pull off a 2 or 3 for 1 trade. We have many C (solid rotation player) to B+ (very good 3rd or 4th option player) players. If we could package Herro or Duncan, plus Highsmith plus Jovic, plus one pick, we should get an A level player in return. Then we could also elevate Cain to a full contract.

heat for life

dunc is gonna have to work with k love he forgot how to shoot. doing lots good things for us though very playable

Bout30man

I didn’t get to watch tonight but I saw Bryant scored in double digits. Did he play well?

Reality Czech

Very nice game. Super aggressive! Still shaky at times on both ends, but really good tonight.

Bout30man

Yes, you have to be careful to not get in Spo’s doghouse, sometimes you never emerge. And when he does finally let you out, you better take that opportunity. Glad he and Cain got a chance tonight. I still think Bryant is a useful player.

heat for life

hasaan whiteside seconds that

Reality Czech

Whiteside’s best moments were under Spo. He did nothing after he left and he’s been out of the league. So, clearly, Spo had him pegged correctly.

Big_guy305

Played pretty good and definitely was the best big tonight out of love and Orlando.

heat for life

bryant was very good hes not an all star so what he gave us for his standard was excellent 30.he was better than orob.competition is gonna make both better.thought best player was duncan with jjj 2nd star and turtle 3rd star

heat for life

panthers are off playing west coast .played terrible vs seattle

Bout30man

Hockey is crazier than basketball in that there are some nights when you lose bad to an inferior team, not just lose a squeaker, but get crushed.

Big_guy305

Great win! Really good game from everyone! And Jimmy was able to get some rest. Feels good having a 2 game win streak.

heat for life

like the dolphins until monday night we beat the mediocre teams but cant beat the good teams.i dont care about beating charlotte chi .i need to see us versus elite teams how we measure up.i think we can hang with just about any team need to see some quality wins

Big_guy305

I think we will get the wins soon from elite teams, we just gotta get healthy. Everytime we play a good team, we’re always out 2 to 3 players, but still can hang. So that bodes well for us.

Reality Czech

I think so too. But every win counts, no matter who it’s against. Team is playing well, with a lot of different players contributing.

Big_guy305

Agreed

heat for life

of course every win counts we’ll prob be a 5 6 seed.like our chances in the east.milw boston phily under nurse will be a war.cant wait for nba playoffs.nba season to long hope jim and bam are 100% healthy for the 2nd season

Reality Czech

I like the full season. As I’ve mentioned before, I like the ride as much as the destination. I already hate to deal with the long imo offseason. I definitely don’t want it being longer.

heat for life

anybody in east we can beat.denver and a healthy lakers team dont think so.

Big_guy305

We will find out soon

ManilaHeat

Reality Czech

Big_guy305

Good D dunc

Reality Czech

Duncan defense – it’s real

heat for life

come on thats not true.offense really good

Reality Czech

You clearly aren’t paying attention. They even showed it on the replay. And it wasn’t the only nice play this game. Tuck in your shirt – your bias is clearly showing.

heat for life

hes improved one on one he cant guard too well watch him please.i hate bashing him hes playing so good offensively but his d is not nba d

Reality Czech

I am watching, as are most people like Eric, Crotty, Ron, Jax, etc.

ManilaHeat

Very real improvement

Reality Czech

Absolutely. We’re not saying he’s a great defender. We’re saying he’s an improved defender and that’s entirely valid.
He at least holds his own now and is using his size better.

heat for life

Big_guy305

Cain making it rain !

heat for life

jeez cain wow with his d dam

Reality Czech

Cain had a number of serious double doubles in g league

Reality Czech

Right on time!

heat for life

eric u a dolphins fan?

Big_guy305

JJJ FOR 3!

Reality Czech

19 down to 14 and it’s rest time for Butler.

Reality Czech

Jaquez and Miller, similar size, similar age, similar stats. One was #2, the other #18.
I’ll take our #18.

Big_guy305

I’ll take Juan wick too, he’s a better defender, better post player, better footwork, better vision, and bbiq. Also Better slasher, better cutter, and looks cooler 😎

heat for life

miller was also up for some sort of murder charge i believe at bama

Big_guy305

Forget about him.

Big_guy305

I never thought rozier would be this good at pg.

heat for life

when balls back terry is sg

Big_guy305

I think they will put Miller at sg , and put Terry as 6th man.

heat for life

wheres pj washington he injured?

Big_guy305

Probably in the doghouse

heat for life

can he be in our dog house

Big_guy305

Only if we make a trade.

Big_guy305

Love the energy on the boards !

heat for life

jimmy winslow

heat for life

turtles best game of year

Big_guy305

Duncan ballin leading scorer back to back nights. He’s evolving

Reality Czech

It’s why I want him to remain with the starters. He’s been a very good fit.

Big_guy305

I would like that too, but I don’t think that will continue when herro comes back.

heat for life

when is the last time heat had a blowout

Big_guy305

Lowry 4 for 4 downtown

Big_guy305

Lowry, duncan,Cain, love, and Thomas all giving some good minutes. I hope we blow out the hornets so Rj can get some run.

heat for life

after watching the dolphins and the heat this year 305 no lead is safe

Big_guy305

Both teams gotta work on that smh
