.“They are small, man,” Hawks coach Nate McMillan had to remind his team in a huddle. “The only big guy out there is Bam, all right? Pound it inside and pound the boards!”

That was in 2022 and is not much different today. Are teams with 7 footers taking advantage of the Heat’s small size today.

Boston has 3 guys 7′
Bucks have 2 guys 7′ and 1 player 6′ 9″.
Sixers have 2 guys 7′
Knicks have 2 guys 7′
Heat’s biggest guy against the Knick in todays game was Bam 6′ 9″.

Heats belief that Skill is better than Size, does it still hold in today’s NBA with players like Porzingis, Embiid, Giannis, AD just to mention a few etc

heat for life

skill can beat size for sure,our smallish players in our rotation caleb hh dunc just not enough skill,

ManilaHeat

Just woke up this game is 4am here so zzzzzzzzzz…..and I guess we got another spanking. Getting worse?

Reality Czech

Worse? No. But changes and/or adjustments are still needed. More size at pf and, as many of us have said, Duncan seems like the better fit with the first unit.

vagibugi

well, we lost again…. I dont like spo rotations..he played small linups… we payed for that

Alien

Spo has complex with size. Our two biggest guys are 6’10”. Boston has 3 guys that are 7′ and above, Bucks have 2 guys that are 7′, and a 3rd player Giannis 6′ 11″, Sixers have 2 guys that are 7′ and Nuggets have 4 guys 6′ 11″ and above. It is not by coincidence that these teams got size more than us. They were intentional in their recruitment. If Heat really want size, their G league affiliate should have some guys 6′ 11″, that is a place to start with. The last time the Heat recruited a 7′ player was 2019.

Alien

Correction: Orlando Robinson is 7′.

Alien

It was not for lack effort or poor defense.

Alien

Our shots didn’t fall, theirs did.

Alien

Like this game better than the previous 2 games.

vagibugi

the direction is right

Big_guy305

For those thinking that not having jjj back was the reason we was losing… well having him back didn’t make a difference, longest losing streak for us in over 3 years. Something needs to be changed ASAP!

G-Menfan4lyfe

We need a true PF… Haywood Highsmith is not it

Big_guy305

We need to try love or Orlando at pf/c until we make another trade.

Alien

Orlando is not it. He has been tried too.Too late to get someone now unless mother luck smiles on us.

Alien

Better team effort tonight.

vagibugi

true…and butler looks better.. but bam and tyler not

vagibugi

at least heat scores 100

G-Menfan4lyfe

This team is hot garbage… about to extend the current longest losing streak in the league

vagibugi

definitely not hot

Reality Czech

Yup, but still have a better history than your guys over the last 20 years. S—t happens. Despite your trolling, I hope Randall is ok.

G-Menfan4lyfe

Not a Knicks fan, lol. I’ve been a Heat fan since the days of Zo and Hardaway.

Reality Czech

My bad, sorry. Assumed from the G men…..

G-Menfan4lyfe

It’s an understandable assumption…. as a kid the first pack of basketball cards I ever got, the best card was an Alonzo Mourning so he became my favorite player. I’m a NY Giants, Ny Mets, Ny Rangers and Miami Heat fan… not typical lol

Big_guy305

Not scoring enough

Big_guy305

We need to get bigger, bam, herro, and rozier
wasn’t good tonight.Time to change the starting lineup.

vagibugi

Big_guy305

Big_guy305

Big_guy305

Alien

The way this team is constructed, I think one of Butler or Rozier should be on the floor at all times.

Big_guy305

Alien
