Boston is well oiled machine playing without the pressure.
Heat just fell behind too much too early.
We need to stay close from the beginning.

heat for life

lebron ad still might be the best 1 2 combo.bam n ty close second lol

Bout30man

Well, we crashed with a thud. What did anyone expect? Maybe we could have a less long injury report, is that too much to ask?

heat for life

w/o jim and terry expected a sweep to be honest.with jim and terry would have expected a heat win.

heat for life

ManilaHeat

Lets get one more win and I’m good. But you’ll never know what surprise this Heat team can give

phily passed on tatun for fultz was that elton john brand

Adam Brant

I told you about Patty haha

heat for life

u needed to tell spobot

heat for life

we need a jalen brown type player jjj jovic dont fit that bill

heat for life

little late with patty spobot

heat for life

jjj jovic never be diff makers talk to me in 5 years.need some high flyers

Reality Czech

I sincerely hope I never have to talk to you over a 5 year period. That would be cruel and unusual punishment.

heat for life

time to start bam love together spobot.

heat for life

butler gives sht efforts to much.hes still by far our best player

ManilaHeat

The Celts juggernaut showed up. We need a miracle which Heat can still have just keep fighting. Incoming run 😁

heat for life

next game must win .

heat for life

pushed him down refs ty immature reaction though

Adam Brant

Bring on Patty

heat for life

flagrant

Reality Czech

So hypocritical…
Quotes from just one single thread. But now it’s, oh no, we can’t trade Jimmy.

i think they can beat atl, chi not sure ,phily prob not.i cant believe how washed jimmy is

a team w/o a superstar will not go very far.jimmys done”

heat for life

a team w/o a ss will not beat boston,a team with playoff jim and terry would have a good chance.the heat w.o butler are not good enough.thats my opinion homer

Reality Czech

No dude, that’s YOUR opinions above.

“every guy should be up for trading everybody theres not one keeper”
So can we trade someone here in HHH? 😆

heat for life

if we had jimmy terry i believe we would win

heat for life

ty 5 for 16 1 assist.can spo just tell him to quit volume shooting play team ball .guess not

heat for life

does ty have an assist today let me ck.such an inconsistent player

heat for life

josh for d white good trade for bost

heat for life

play it out with jim for couple more years just get rid of onewayers.u get rid of jim your counting on jjj jovic to be real good thats to risky

SunManFromDogBone

Counting on getting a buttload of players/assets for Jimmy, Herro and Duncan plus sign & trade for Martin.

heat for life

good to see u posting during game btw

Reality Czech

NO WAY. DUMB STRATEGY. SUCK FOR 2 MORE YEARS WITH A PLAYER ON THE DOWNSIDE MAKING $50 MILLION A YEAR AND THEN LEAVES US WHEN HIS CONTRACT EXPIRES AND WE GET ….NOTHING. BRILLIANT,

heat for life

jimmy a heat lifer he likes the warm weather tennis down here.get the man some help like dallas gm did for luka

Sundayafternoons

I must be watching a different game than y’all.
We missed a lot of shots in the first quarter, and had a lot of turnovers in the second quarter at inflection points.

We forced Boston to play the type of offense we went them to play more often than we didn’t. If we weren’t missing shots, I don’t think Boston is making those one on one pull ups.

In other words, the formula if we execute works. Boston is not 2023 Denver in the finals. Keep chipping away Heat.

Sundayafternoons

Ha, Derrick White quickly made this pointless.

SunManFromDogBone

I’ll check with you guys after the game if I’m not watching UFC.

ManilaHeat

Everyone’s already looking ahead game 4…still plenty of time. Make a run, Miami!

heat for life

like to seee jaime get more touches

heat for life

our starting 5 is def a better looking team

SunManFromDogBone

Commentator said every Celtic is a two-way player. Hint to Riley. I wonder what Miami can get on the open market for Butler, Herro, Duncan and a sign & trade for Martin? I think there are plenty of trades/free agents available out there.

The good thing is it only counts as 1 game. Hopefully, Wright and Rozier are back next game. (Wishful thinking)

GO HEAT!!!

heat for life

boston really attacked ty

heat for life

pritchards not a two wayer.

SunManFromDogBone

He’s all over our guard’s asses.

heat for life

best so fla team plays in sunrise

heat for life

jrue holiday score?what an unselfish player.in milw he was 2nd option.looks like 4th option in bean town.wish pat could ahve gotten him hes one heckuva all round player

heat for life

wifes mad stayed home for this thanks heat

heat for life

i know everybody wants butler gone but unless u get a similar player in ability your looking at a 500 team

SunManFromDogBone

They weren’t much better than .500 with him. 33-27 (55%) They were 13-9 (59.1%) without him.

Reality Czech

Might as well talk to a wall. Doesn’t get it. It’s not at all a knock on Butler. Just time to get younger, taller, stronger, more capable.

heat for life

getting younger doesnt mean u get better

Reality Czech

Getting older definitely doesn’t make you better!

Reality Czech

And I didn’t just say younger. Try and read the whole comment if you’re able to.

SunManFromDogBone

Time to “re-tool”

Reality Czech

You can definitely get value for him. Jae Crowder garnered five second round picks! If they keep Butler and they have another season like this, you will be the first person in line complaining all of the time!

ManilaHeat

Maybe we could ask the league to play the rest of the series in Boston

ManilaHeat

Man that’s ugly

Adam Brant

Give Patty a go , can’t hurt

Reality Czech

Thinking the same thing

heat for life

bams screens some are illegal hes moving

heat for life

heat for life

heat for life
