ManilaHeat

Lead was down to 13 with 7 more minutes. then trent cnt miss from 3 and barnes attacked lead back to 20+. Heat only made six 3s, trent made 8! it was their night Heat was off from every stats. maybe forgot to bring their coffee left it in bklyn

heat for life

maybe need jjj back

ManilaHeat

charge this loss to experience hehe

heat for life

its clear jimmys aged. not a night in night out stud.good news we have jjj and caleb healthy.bad news neither are superstars.so we do not have a super star on our roster.ss is a top 10-12 player in league donovan mitchell is a superstar if he wants out get him.givem ty and pick

Bout30man

And they did this without Siakam. No sugarcoating it, definitely some weaknesses exposed. They are not tired, not heavily injured, not playing a team trying hard or playing well. Not enough two way players, shows up against the more athletic teams. and their are more athletic than Toronto. It’s staring us right in the face

heat for life

that is true.need 2 way players to compete heat have to many one way players and a zero way player.(lowry)

ManilaHeat

throwing in the towel. good game raps but we might not see you in the playoffs.

Big_guy305

While getting blown out, I just went to get pizza. It got ugly fast, I’ll chalk this up to being a trap game, on to the next.

ManilaHeat

Pizza got pineapple in it? lol

Big_guy305

Lol nah I got 1bbox pepperoni, 1 box sausage, and 1 box supreme

ManilaHeat

Wow! Drooling here

Big_guy305

Bout30man

Got to give the Heat some credit. They are playing hard, cut the giant lead almost in half.

ManilaHeat

heat for life

toronto u will not like rj barrett by the end of the year

heat for life

ManilaHeat

if there’s anyone more embarrassed with this, its the players themselves. a gut punch, a really hard one, this first half. i want to see a fight in them at least bring it down to less than 20 by the 4th. lets go Heat! I will just be here…you guys can go, i love you all lol

heat for life

ManilaHeat

heat for life

ManilaHeat

Raps playing loose seems they have nothing to play for at 15-25. it happens. can Heat still come back from this ginourmous deficit? i wanna see it hehe

heat for life

cleveland omer pack poplar very good college players

heat for life

watching my canes sorry heaters

heat for life

let caleb loose please

Bout30man

I was hoping they would cut it to Bout30man. Oh well.

heat for life

jovic nice stroy what is he where does he play go back to europe son youd be the best player there

Bout30man

Still a project here. In my opinion, the lack of defense was worse than the lack of offense. But saying that is not bailing on the team. I love the Heat. Criticism is appropriate tonite, but only in the making of a point that this team, despite its 24-17 record, is only slightly above average. And Jimmy can’t carry it anymore. We need help, and the Raptors are exposing it. I just want us to honestly assess where this team is at and see reality. If we do that, this drubbing will be worth it.

heat for life

jimmy can carry us occasionally u forget about jjj and caleb is back let them all play together then we can make some fair judgements 30

Bout30man

I hear you but do not agree. JJJ is good, but he won’t fix everything. The truth is this is a first round team, no more, and you know it judging by your last post.

Bout30man

I am embarrassed. All the weaknesses are showing up at once.

heat for life

one game lol

Reality Czech

Can’t blame anyone who wants to leave to watch reruns of The Honeymooners. 😬

heat for life

Bout30man

Hope they learn from this.

heat for life

jimmy just cant do it every nightdoesnt have energy stamina or lebron gene in him

Reality Czech

Last 2 first halfs, the Heat is 1 for 25 from 3. Ouch!!

Big_guy305

They hot from 3, can’t do anything about that, plus we ain’t scoring, so that’s a recipe for disaster. Hopefully they can mount a come back.

ManilaHeat

Heat fans bailing out on their team…typical. Lets go Heat!!

Reality Czech

Haha. I admit I might be there myself tonight.

heat for life

toronto next game loses.every team can play couple great games in a year

heat for life

Bout30man

Guess I will watch the Panthers. This is atrocious.

heat for life

Big_guy305

This a trap game.

heat for life

keep jim out whole night bam to surrender

Reality Czech

Of course you must know that’s not gonna happen. Maybe if they’re still down 30+ end of 3rd, yes.

heat for life
