Play in, here we come.

An optimistic view on everything is, that we are actually lucky to get two more games in play in, and then 7 games in each series after that.

This team just have to suffer to go achieve something.
But such attitude is paid with shorter lives of fans loosing nerves, furniture to be destroyed, neighbours to be frightening by unarticulated screaming of people watching those games.

So, a 10 games long winning streak would makes a lot of people happy.

SunManFromDogBone

That game was hideous! Head; illness? WTF is that? Inquiring minds want to know!

ManilaHeat

Uhm not well in the head? 😂

heat for life

being jimmy

ManilaHeat

Just have to wait for game recap before I complain with a bit of expletives 🙄

oregoner

I thought this team was supposed to be getting healthy? I am looking forward to the game when starting lineup is more talented than the injury report. Hasn’t happened in a while

Reality Czech

True

Belacqua

For real… this story got old 3 weeks ago

Bout30man

Man, with Jimmy and what we had tonite, we have a team good enough to win. This one soured me a little on Jimmy, whether right over wrong. I know it’s possible he could go out last night and get sick today, but there is just enough doubt for me to start to wonder about his level of commitment, speaking strictly of this moment, not before. Hope this doesn’t turn out to be a trend.

Reality Czech

We’ve all had a colleague at one time or another that we run into some evening and they’re having a grand time, and the next day we learn they called in sick. You can’t help but wonder, especially with a description of head illness. Like I said earlier, is that a headache? Hangover? Head cold? If Zo could play with a transplanted kidney, it seems to me Butler could have played. I’d feel a lot different if we had locked up our seed already, but we’re struggling to keep out of the play-in.

oregoner

If it was just Jimmy wouldn’t worry about it. They’ve been sitting half the team since the all-star break, and there’s only two weeks left in the season. Do you trust this team to be healthy for multiple weeks of playoff basketball? I’m seeing way too much Patty Mills and DW4 to believe this team can beat anyone in the playoffs.

Reality Czech

Mills has been awful. Delon not much better. It’s unlikely that we’ll end up any lower than 8th. If we end up in either there or 7, and if Embiid returns for the play-in, I think we’ll have a problem. If we lose that game, we’ll be in the same situation as last season – win or go home. While lightening may strike twice, it’s not the type of odds I would put my hard earned money on. And if we win, we’ll have the privilege of playing the Celtics. They’ve had a great season.

oregoner

I don’t think the Heat look like they could beat the Magic right now, and I call Orlando the JV team! We’re two weeks away from the playoffs and they’re playing some of their worst basketball of the season. Even if guys come back before the playoffs, do they have enough time to gel?

Belacqua

Delon was never gna drop 25 for us. He is reliable on d tho. Bam, delon, haywood, and healthy caleb are what will get us some winnable rock fights if we make it to the big games

Bout30man

To me, that strong defensive team with Jimmy and Bam, that is our best chance to do some damage in the play in, hard to see us getting much further. The only good thing about last night was that HH has moved up a notch in quality.

Belacqua

If we don’t make 6th, at least we can be sure there’s literally no way we can sit out way out of the play in lol

heat for life

commercials kyle trade old body lots trash around him who needs wear and tear for these guys ill save it for my next team next year.he just texted me this

heat for life

my sympathy to your panthers tough loss 30

Bout30man

That one hurts bad. We were winning late. What a double whammy bummer.

ManilaHeat

I got busy and the Heat got lazy? So play-in is it?! 😐

Belacqua

Beats Cancun, right?

heat for life

bam needs to be our second best player next year.get donovan get rid of butler

Alien

And who else?

heat for life

send him to ny for randle

Big_guy305.

Nah Randle ain’t that good in the playoffs.

Belacqua

Loool that was a much needed chuckle, champ. Much needed indeed

no lebron milw lal going to ot ad monster game bam cant do that

Bout30man

They have some pretty good other players.

Belacqua

Healthy ones too

heat for life

they draft kuminga we draft jovic

Big_guy305.

He was a lottery pic and jovic wasn’t simple as that.

heat for life

jovics nothing

Reality Czech

That’s crap. He’s a decent player who will continue to improve. Not good shooting, but 11/6/4 is not nothing. And, as usual, you recently asked everyone ‘is there anything Jovic can’t do’ when you were enamored with him. Any time the wind changes direction, so do you.

Alien

Well said.

Reality Czech

Thanks, appreciate it

heat for life

no impact on game rc 7 pts first minute 4pts rest of game

Bout30man

Might as well see what he becomes. I have gone from he has no chance to he has a small chance. He is improving and he is very young.

Reality Czech

On a rookie contract, which is important

heat for life

hes better on d than offense,he cant get to the rim vs these guys so all he is is a jump shooter.in europe he could dominate hes not getting any quicker.on a good team he wouldnt play,thats way i see it

Reality Czech

Of course it is. It’s not the way others see it. Like I said, you change so often in your opinions, how can I take them seriously?

heat for life

i need more body of work,hes a newby.hes got little chance to be anything good .way i see it,

Reality Czech

Do you realize you just contradicted yourself? First, “I need more body of work” (sensible), to immediately making a judgement “he’s got little chance” (nonsensical).

heat for life

projecting its called.dont see it.hope im wrong

Reality Czech

Nope. The first part of your sentence is about withholding judgment, at least until you see more. The second part of your sentence you are making a judgement now, totally contradicting the first part.

Reality Czech

A #7 vs a #27 pick, DUH!

heat for life

beaut move by williams like to see patty do that spobot

heat for life

jovic might be the best player in the serbian league.think he should take his skills over seas for his well being .these guys just to athletic for him here

Bull

Have you even watched the game? Jovic was at least decent, I would say even better than most that played last night. Rozier, Martin, JJJ all were worse. I would say only Bam and Highsmith were better.
His defence is much better than on the start of the season. His shooting is there, he will never be that much of a off the dribble shooter due to his size but as spot up shooter, he is as good as anyone.
His playmaking, considering his size and age is great and he will get better. Just check the first 2 season of Nikola Jokic, there were a lot of doubters like you and he is a future HOF now.
Not saying Jovic is that much of a talent, but he is talented player, on a great contract for the Heat.

ManilaHeat

So I turned away again and its almost 20

heat for life

great post keep them coming

Big_guy305.

Herro definitely getting traded next season hopefully. He’s just too injury prone, especially late in the season.

heat for life

nobodys gonna want him.

ZechMerquise

utah or brooklyn will

heat for life

wont get much for him always hurt no d

Big_guy305.

I can think of 5 teams of the top of my head that would want him. Nets, kings, lakers, pistons, magic.

heat for life

always hurt no d gl to them

Big_guy305.

His D better then Malik, cam, ivey, and Clarkson.

Bout30man

The market for him will be underwhelming. Irregardless, time to move on.

heat for life

again correct 30

heat for life

players 4 -15 not very good maybe hh can change that

Zac

Glad Jim got some rest. Wouldn’t want him to over exert himself .

Bout30man

That’s what I am thinking.

Big_guy305.

Heat need to get healthy really soon or we’re gonna be in the play in again.

Reality Czech

Or out

Big_guy305.

Yes sadly

Josh

Heat are not catching the pacers and that doesn’t seem to be there call. Rest and I battle the sixers for that 7 spot. Win and get the bucks who want revenge or lose, play another damn game and play the Celtics who also want revenge.

Big_guy305.

Never say never,.but yes pacers playing better then us and more healthy. So it’s a good chance that you’re right.

Reality Czech

Turn out the lights, the party’s over

heat for life

ok don

heat for life

guy didnt miss shot first half has taken 1 in second half

Big_guy305.

Only 30 points In the 2nd half ain’t gonna cut it.

Zac

Team offense is putrid in far too many games this year. It’s just a boring slog.

heat for life

jjj caleb jovic not very good

Big_guy305.

I agree, plus these injuries don’t help either. Jimmy and herro been missing too many games like 100 games missing between them the last 2 seasons .

heat for life

Cmon Heat, you can do this

Big_guy305.

Game over

Bout30man

Too many injuries.

Reality Czech

I felt we needed to get it down to about eight points by the four minute mark. Unfortunately, it went the other way.

ZechMerquise

other teams scoring 130,140, etc..meanwhile us were struggling to reach 90 lol

Zac

Zero good offensive players in Miami and their 50$m star can’t be bothered to play more than 65% of the games.

heat for life

tys good terrys good bams ok

heat for life

10 dayer nice effort lol

Big_guy305.

Haywood disappeared in the 2nd half, not enough shots.

Big_guy305.

An injury stricken heat without Jimmy, herro,love,and Duncan against an healthy warriors. You could see this lost a mile away.

heat for life

think hh has taken 1 shot

Reality Czech

He’s been out there since end of 3rd, so that’s not on Spo.

Big_guy305.

That’s one problem with haywood he’s too much of hesitant shooter, and passes out of open shits too much.

heat for life

run a play for him then rc

ZechMerquise

game over. they want it more than us

Big_guy305.

This loss on Jimmy for not playing.

Big_guy305.

8 for 29 from 3, not enough offense tonight.

heat for life

isnt patty a 3pt specialist lol

Big_guy305.

Hasn’t been good from 3 since the first game.
