ManilaHeat

So close. Good fight I guess? The game was 3am here! Tried to watch but the zzzzzs got me. No JB just lost by 4. But not good losing Terry and hopefully not JRich too long. Celts fans are rejoicing they sweep the season series. Maybe still can’t get over last po beating lol

heat for life

dunc yard wanted a piece of brown .

ManilaHeat

Oohh gotta watch that later thanks

heat for life

i gained alot of respect for the dunc yard dog.he wanted a piece of jb.if there werent other players stopping the dog .dunc would have fought him.and dunc yard was mad and usually the mad guy wins the fight.btw the other heat players are soft not one got in browns face if ud were on ct that would not have been the case

Big_guy305

The dunc yard dog, doesn’t mess around, jb lucky he didn’t get Strangled with a chain lol

heat for life

bam grabbing porzingis nuts,dam that was bad and porz got the foul,go heat hope we see the cs in playoffs.

Reality Czech

Weak ass lame posters like stone wait til the whistle blows to show up here. It’s been 16 years, again 16 YEARS!, since Celtics last won anything, and you come here to gloat? A total joke. Crawl back in your hole with the other cockroaches.

It is incredibly lame, I feel sorry for them

Big_guy305

There are nothing but losers, even lakers won a title more recently then them scrotum sacks. They supposedly got all that talent but can’t even win a championship.

2qbn

Yup. Tatum and Brown are too soft, like that poster

2qbn

No doubt his butt cheeks were clenched yelling at the TV in his chowda-head accent about firing Mazzula and trading Jalen

heat for life

jalen brown in the playoffs gl boston youll need it.

Dee

This heat team is a joke. Erick Spoltra will never win a championship with his outdated style of playing small. He places his team at unnecessary disadvantages much to often with his style of playing small at almost each and every position

This is popular for those that just want to complain, but Boston shot 42% from 3 and the Heat shot 30%. Please explain how a big would have changed that. Show your work, too

Sharkey

I am surprised by the stats, that we have actually outrebounded the celtics. Good effort by Bam especially on the boards.

Big_guy305

Your spelling of Eric spolestra is a joke, that play style isn’t outdated, evident by multiple teams still using that style. For all that size Boston barely outrebounded us, also we got 14 offensive rebounds compared to Boston 6.

Reality Czech

Big guy, quick, it’s spoelstra. Edit. 😀

Big_guy305

Lmaooo 😭 too late, spell check messed Me up

Bruh when you’re a playoff team theres no such thing as moral victories in games y’all lost nobody cares about injuries, every team has injuries and good and bad games throughout the year. Btw keep thinking you’ll turn up the heat in the playoffs when you’re 0-3 against the celtics, 0-2 against the bucks and 0-2 against the knicks hahahaha trash team this year. Only win against a legitimate eastern conference contender is one against the cavs

btw if we’re playing the “oh oUr PlAyErS wErE iNjUrEd” game the one win against the cavs was heat at full strength against cavs without mitchell lmfao

2qbn

I love how you are here and none of us are nowhere near what ever shit team you root for. Come around and again and show us how much the Heat are in your head

Bout30man

Excellent reply. His action showed the man is what he is.

2qbn

Hahahaha! Clearly the Heat has whooped your teams ass several times, whoever that may be. Good luck failing again, dip shit. Now go back to what ever cesspool you briefly escaped from

Sharkey

Just let this lame troll talk to himself

Big_guy305

Last time I checked regular season doesn’t matter you troll, come playoff time your more talented celtics will fold again, and probably won’t even be in the finals lol.

vagibugi

its clear, that we cant match boston in the way we are playing right now.
we need to find a different way

Big_guy305

Only reason we couldn’t match them tonight was injuries, AND THAT’S THE ONLY REASON.

vagibugi

i disagree… we were behind the whole game.

Big_guy305

Doesn’t matter, if we had jrich or rozier, that would of given us more offensive punch. Haywood is good defensively, but offense is near nonexistent. He gave us 23 minutes with just 2 points, that won’t cut it.

Alien

I prefer a consistent player on offense than what the player’s potentials on paper may be.

Big_guy305

I agree with that, that’s why prefer Cain over Highsmith, he gives better offense with close to the same defense. But you know spo gonna play who he trusts more.

heat for life

mia can beat any team in the east the west no

heat for life

that caleb foul was so dum what was he thinking

Bout30man

I can’t tell anyone how to feel but I feel as close as you can to good about this losing effort. Now, let’s hope our players are not hurt too bad. We may have grown a little as a team today.

Big_guy305

Win or lose , the played admirably. Down jimmy,jrich, and rozier. They played there heart with effort, intensity, and hustle. That’s all we could ask for.

2qbn

Yeah that was close to being as a big of a regular season win in a long time. No doubt we put some doubt and fear in to them, especially Jalen. The Heat are the last team they want to see in the playoffs, especially once we have Jimmy back and sign Thad Young and Gallo lol (jk on that)

Big_guy305

Shid I rather have thad or Gallo taking that pivotal Highsmith missed open 3.

heat for life

gallo yes thats not thads game.rather have thad than gallo.

Reality Czech

Great effort

Big_guy305

Herro gotta take the shots

heat for life

think ty needs to be pg going forward .rozier is more of a 2 anyway

Reality Czech

If Rozier is healthy, he’s the pg. No doubt.

heat for life

hes more of a 2 though.hes small but hes looking to score first

Reality Czech

I don’t see him exactly that way because he’s had an incredible assist to turnover ratio, including 6 with 0 turnovers today. And he is assisting all year at a pretty high rate. But, yeah, he could be either 1 or 2.

heat for life

bams not a guy thats scores in crunch time

Big_guy305

I thought that was out

Big_guy305

Injuries finally catching up to us

2qbn

We had a legit chance even with everyone out. The Heat are not scared of Boston. If they play in a series Boston has to make plays to win 4 games. It will not be given to them like the 76ers gifted them that series last year

Big_guy305

Yes we did and that’s all we could of hoped for , and heat most definitely not scared of any team in the east .

2qbn

Not the player I want taking that shot, but he was open

Big_guy305

Me either, but had no choice with all the injuries.

heat for life

dum foul caleb

Reality Czech

Not a good foul

Big_guy305

Awesome game ,if we can pull this out this would be our signature win of the season.

heat for life

tatum brown too much hero ball,they dont move ball

2qbn

Duncan D!

Reality Czech

Herro!

Big_guy305

Herro on fire

Reality Czech

What a play by Highsmith!

2qbn

Much needed. He knew he needed to do something, anything

Big_guy305

BOY WONDER !

Big_guy305

Score again

Bout30man

We are scrapping with them. All effort and hustle. Very impressive no matter how the game ends up.

2qbn

No Jimmy. No Terry. No Jrich. And we’re helping them by playing Highsmith lol

Big_guy305

He playing good D tho

2qbn

Yes but we need more. Too shorthanded

heat for life

bam put that up with left hand not getting blocked

Sharkey

I like the intensity

vagibugi

we have to score

Big_guy305

Yes badly

Big_guy305

Brown folding playoff style

2qbn

Yeah he seems to easily lose focus

Big_guy305

Yes, hopefully Boston continues running the offense through him instead of tatum.

Reality Czech

Duncan d!

heat for life

Big_guy305

2qbn

Reality Czech

Big_guy305

vagibugi

Sharkey

Funny. What’s his problem?

Big_guy305

Amazing shot from Martin

heat for life

crotty would say that shouldnt count

Big_guy305

Haywood a fouling machine smh

heat for life

browns a hard guard lots pump fakes

2qbn

Heat saying knee for Terry. Interesting as it looked more like an ankle.

Big_guy305

Spo said it was ankle just a few minutes ago. So idk 🤷‍♂️

2qbn

I trust Spo. Ira is saying knee

heat for life

Reality Czech

Yes

heat for life

2qbn

Duncan>…………………………………………………………………………………………..Haywood

Bout30man

The Heat are playing with very strong effort. Too bad about the injuries. But proud of the team nonetheless.
