That Tyler headache they say was a precursor to a trade! On going?! Just from unreliable sources lol. That’s a nervous laugh

Bout30man

I couldn’t watch the game. Did the announcers talk about Herro’s headaches? Could he have been held out?

ManilaHeat

Good try. Not good enough. Those Harden baits killed us but kudos to his difficult 3s made. It really kept them rolling. But the fight was there. Just keep fighting lots of games still to be played. Go Heat!

Big_guy305

We just couldn’t hit enough 3s, that was the difference.

Big_guy305

Win or loss, we played the current best nba team admirably while shooting bad from 3 and without are top 2 shooters.

heat for life

didnt see a foul on that butler layup

Reality Czech

Bad foul. Killed 17 seconds.

Reality Czech

As they say, close only counts in horseshoes.

SunManFromDogBone

and nukes.

heat for life

nobody ripping bam during this funk but he looks like a diff player during this 10 game terry funk all star on d for sure /1/2 his pts are alley oops

Big_guy305

I did say he didn’t play well tonight

Reality Czech

Damn, if Rozier hits his average 3s, we’d be right there. Other parts of his game are coming along. Those 3s have to start coming soon.

Big_guy305

Yes, I agree, but hopefully he starts hitting them 3s soon.

heat for life

rozier 36%3s 42%2s career

Reality Czech

Closer to 37%. I previously pointed out that he isn’t a high percentage shooter. We already knew that. But, as I said, if he was just at that 37% now, we’d be in the game with 6 more points. Unfortunately, he didn’t. Typical. You were high on him early, looking to knock him now. But 17/7/5/2 is a good effort.

heat for life

not a good shooter 37 42 not very good homer

Reality Czech

Dude, you were amongst the people who wanted Rozier. You were unaware of his stats before he got here? Great research.

Big_guy305

Impressive stats while going 0 of 5 from 3

Reality Czech

Oh yeah, and as Eric just pointed out, 20 assists and 3 turnovers in the last 3 games. That’s stellar play from the pg position.

paul george has played such a bad game .

Big_guy305

Great d for the whole game, but offense fell off in the 4th quarter.

heat for life

jim took the night off

heat for life

clips are tier 1 team heat tier 3

Big_guy305

We was missing are top 2 3point shooters, but I agree ,we’re currently tier 3

Big_guy305

Clips destroyed us with the 3s 16 for them and 7 for us

ManilaHeat

Clips defended the 3 well props to them

They didn’t defend it that well, we was missing a lot of open 3s, especially rozier,jaquez, and Highsmith.

Reality Czech

Rozier looking better, and those 3s will come, like the other parts of his game.

Big_guy305

Bam worst game in a while

Big_guy305

Clips got double the Amount of 3s we got. Missing herro and Robinson really hurts us offensively

heat for life

team not very good unless butler balls out today he didnt

Big_guy305

Can’t win this between dumb refs and harden flopping.

heat for life

nothing to do with losing missed a few calls yes.just not good enough

Big_guy305

Missing 3s too

Reality Czech

Missing our 2 primary 3 point shooters

ManilaHeat

Gotta hand it to these Clips. They’re really d@mn good. Nice to see we fighting toe to toe up to that point 😳

heat for life

games over

ZechMerquise

game over, move on to the next

Big_guy305

So weak smh

Reality Czech

Come on with these flops

heat for life

powell is sweet player

Big_guy305

I don’t expect refs to be good, but at least be consistent.

heat for life

we need a plumlee bruiser type sunman

Big_guy305

These refs terrible tonight .

Big_guy305

How he didn’t get a foul ? But can’t even breathe on harden

Reality Czech

how could that not be a foul? You hit Harden with a feather, and he falls

heat for life

is jaime still wiping the rust off injured no confidence ?playing like crape

Big_guy305

Jimmy gotta takeover for jaquez

heat for life

jaquez is borderline unplayable

Big_guy305

Yes this is one of his worst games ever.

Reality Czech

Impossible. The first or second best player on the team according to you. He is playable. We need him.

heat for life

last month yea now he suks crazy what happened to him,not sure who he is a scrub average all star?

Reality Czech

This is you dude. High on a player one minute, low the next. Players go through droughts within a season. Of course you want consistency, but life doesn’t work that way.

heat for life

clippers with james and paul have zero chance to win a chip

Big_guy305

Harden a crafty flopper

Reality Czech

Totally

Big_guy305

Smh

Big_guy305

Jaquez off tonight missing bunnies

heat for life

eric misses his football

Big_guy305

Dumb foul

Big_guy305

So game might go down to the wire

heat for life

come on jjj lets go

Big_guy305

Finally a jaquez 3

heat for life

when i moved to mia in 67 there were like 3 tall buildings

Bout30man

The courthouse had to be the tallest for a long time. Then, probably 1968, two buildings went up, one maybe 21 stories, I think called First Federal Bank building, and the second was the taller blue glass building that is maybe thirty stories. I worked as a summer job on the shorter building, as an electrician’s helper.

Reality Czech

Tight game going into the 4th. You wanna be a contender? This is where you step up.

heat for life
