Injuries are the story again. Who knows if we are good, everything is unclear when you never have a full team. And, just like all the other GLeaguers, the shortcomings of these players we rely on get exposed. Add Cain to the list with RJ, ORob, and HH, they give glimpses of ability, but usually not sustainable. Games like the last two make you wonder, do we have enough, no way to know.

oregoner

I think the Heat are good when healthy. I think it’s good the young guys are getting some playing time. As long as they don’t drop into the play-in, I’m fine with using the rest of this road trip as a learning opportunity for the young guys. Hopefully they can steal another win or two

Big_guy305

Too many injuries to overcome this super team, next up the lakers. Hopefully we can sneak a win against the lakeshow.

Reality Czech

I root against Harden no matter what team he plays for. Except OKC, and that’s because I didn’t know any better 😆.

Reality Czech

On to the next game. Let’s get some guys healthy.

oregoner

okay, it’s over. Put in the bench

Reality Czech

Shooting 43%, Clippers 58%. You just can’t win many games with such lopsided stats.

oregoner

Hey hey! We’ve blown a bunch of 4th quarter leads this season. Let’s go steal one back! We’re in LA, do it for Jamie!

Reality Czech

Would be nice. Still time.

Big_guy305

Knock down a couple 3s in we’re back in this.

Big_guy305

Love energy!

Big_guy305

This what happens when we miss 4 of our top defenders .

oregoner

This is why the Heat need somone like Dame or Donovan Mitchell. Win or loose, those guys are going down shooting. This team needs a lead ballhandler. Tyler is a good player, but he’s not running the offense.

oregoner

ps hopefully he proves me wrong after this timeout

Big_guy305

We played the best we could’ve, just too many injuries.

Reality Czech

Up 15, down 16. A 31 point turnaround. Enough said.

heat for life

ok sleep time c u guys wednesday

oregoner

Bam been great tonight

heat for life

Big_guy305

Bam gotta takeover the 4th .

oregoner

Dang Kawhai

Big_guy305

We still In this…

heat for life

should have signed russ just for his energy and d

Big_guy305

Ain’t he a free agent next season?

Reality Czech

He signed a VERY team friendly contract

Reality Czech

He has always played hard. I admire his energy level.

heat for life

tys a good scorer not sure hes good for team

heat for life

love bam dunc jjj rj was our best lineup when we had almost 15 pt lead

Reality Czech

It ain’t over til it’s over. Let’s go Heat!

Reality Czech

The fat lady sang?

oregoner

Why are there like two guys on every team wearing the Kobe Reverse Grinches? Duncan has them on the Heat. Two dudes on the Clippers wearing them. I think there were two dudes on Utah wearing them

oregoner

Jamie is wearing the Luka Jordans

Big_guy305

Hand bam the ball every trip down.

Big_guy305

Cut it down to 10 , and go ballistic in the 4th

heat for life

games pretty much over dont empty bench yet mcdaniel lol

oregoner

Lowry moving up the standings for “most likely to have a NYE hangover”

heat for life

opposing teams shooting % way to high night after night

heat for life

let russ shoot

Big_guy305

Good ball movement

oregoner

Herro and Jaquez starting to find a little rhythm

Big_guy305

It’s coming at the right time, but they gotta keep it up in the 4th .

Reality Czech

oops, thanks Cain for coming alive.

Reality Czech

Love and Duncan have been good. Cain has been invisible. Herro 3 turnovers. Bryant and Hampton non factors.

oregoner

I think Cain has good energy, but he looks young out there tonight

hes in for d rebounding like crotty says never gets play called for him.but hes missing his shots tonight

Reality Czech

Oh, I see. Tonight you’re agreeing with Crotty.

oregoner

Reid says he’s only made something like 7 3-pointers all season and 14 in his career. He’s going to need to shoot if he wants to be out there when it matters

Big_guy305

Paul coming alive .

Reality Czech

Bam is the bright spot even though he’s missing, he’s at least getting to the line

heat for life

too quick for zubac

heat for life

clips if healthy gonna be a tough out

oregoner

Bam running point on that feed to love was beautiful

heat for life

bams quickness gets him lots fouls

Reality Czech

I know we’re very short tonight, but it doesn’t seem to matter who is on the court. These second half struggles are so troubling.

heat for life

what do u think it is adjustments by opposing coach all i can think of

Reality Czech

Adjustments and 2 or 3 players get cold and/or sloppy.

oregoner

I think that’s where the injuries get you. Heat are running the G-League team off the bench

Reality Czech

Certainly a factor, but we’ve struggled with this all season. Still have time to fix it. We’ll see.

oregoner

My top-five suspects for playing with a New Years Eve hangover

  1. Herro
  2. Harden
  3. Jamie
  4. Terrance Mann
  5. Lowry
oregoner

Bam is too quick for Zoo

heat for life

cain missing everything

oregoner

Kahwai just big-boy’d Jamie

heat for life

games getting out of hand put love in lol

heat for life

pg in playoffs a choker big time

heat for life

jjjs game fallen off a bit

Big_guy305

Rookie wall

heat for life

tys taking his shots he was getting w/o ty

heat for life

heat have to play some balt ravens defense.too many points scored by our opponents

heat for life

crottys a decent announcer not as good as tony he was excellent

oregoner

tony was terrible but lovable. My wife loved his accent. Dr. Jack was my all-time favorite. I think this is only Crotty’s second season? I think he’s pretty good.

But really, they’re all just the icing on the cake. The Dulcet tones of Eric Reid will always bring a smile to my face

heat for life

crottys been here at least 7 years i believe.tony was fantastic disagree bro

Big_guy305

Crotty good but his voice never changes always mono tone.

heat for life

manila where ru

Big_guy305

Bam already with 11 rebounds, his offense should come around more in the 2nd half. Clippers shooting 63 percent, hopefully that goes down in the 2nd half.

heat for life

lets face it if your gonna giv elots minutos to ty dunc lowry and some to love your not gonna be a good defensive team

Big_guy305

Got no choice with all the injuries

heat for life

this is true hh jim both locksmiths

heat for life

u think tua can become drew brees .hes kirk cousins.doesnt have the it factor

Big_guy305

Idk tbh he has prove it to me by winning a playoff game. And play great the bills
