yeah wayne ellington is so underrated, he has laser guided precision on his shots and elevation....

yup. he's a beast.

derrick jones jr played great last night too. he's so fun to watch. Hope he gets more playing time. Lots of nice dunks last night.

right now beating the pacers.



I just don't see how they will lose this momentum as the season goes on .. I mean people keep getting injured, and someone else steps in and they win. This team is solid. Been saying that since last year, such a deep squad.

HEAT!!!!!!!!

heat has ran pretty well though, theyve been in so many close games this year and won a lot of close games as well....

i wonder if heat going to run out of gas the way they are winning lately....

its not easy to beat raptors @ canada and pacers @ indy...... they beat celts ..... i mean dam

they are like 20-4 the last 25 games..... usually when teams do this and they're not golden state.... they hit a wall sometime.....

all it takes is for u to go up against a hungry team and be out of it to go on losing streaks in this league...... that is if ur not GSW.... gsw on another level, they have the power of the RING ....

man i wish i can see some closed practices of GSW.... they must really go at it and work at it in practice.... i can see Kerr just going nuts over certain things..... kerr has that MJ aggression in him, it happens when ur with MJ for so long....

gsw is just faster and more accurate than the entire league period.... steph klay can release shot in like mili secs and kd shoots over anyone with accuracy....

give gsw the ring now, its over.... like seriously..... they're just going to win the ring again unless refs make sure they dno't and than that would just be too obvious on nat'l tv

i dno. i think the beauty of Miami is that there aren't any "true superstars", other than Whiteside but, he's more of a rebounding/blocking/big presence superstar, his offense is decent but he isn't there #1 goto. There's no real #1 goto player anymore. On any given night, anyone can go off. This doesn't happen too often in the NBA.

as far as coach Spo goes, these last two years are probably his most impressive. All of the titles he has with the heat, came with multiple mega-star players: Shaq/Wade, Lebron/Wade/Bosh. It took him a while last year to figure this group out and get them clicking. It took a short while this year. But man once he gets them all clicking, 12 deep, they became a real threat. Literally anyone on that team can step up and their defense is rugged.

so ya not sure if they will fizzle or not.. last year they kept it up from all-star break until the end. This year I really think they will keep it up into the playoffs.

I just don't think i've seen a team with this many injuries, respond so well .. EVER. Except maybe the New England Patriots in Football: reason - their Coach. Seems like the same reason here.

I'm a heat fan so, but even if I wasn't, i'd be just as impressed with the heat's last 2 seasons and Spo's coaching.

I think they'll be even more on point in the playoffs. Lots of analysts now saying the Heat could be the real darkhorse in the playoffs this year, ruining alot of party's. We'll see somewhat soon enough.. :D

lol pretty much. Kerr will be a GOAT-level coach when it's all over. He might end up the "Jordan of NBA Coaching", eclipsing Phil etc. I like his style and offense alot better than Phil as well. Plus Phil had MJ and Kobe/Shaq. KD changes everything for GSW, that's like Kobe/Shaq level now for GSW, except KD and everyone on GSW seems to get along great. HEH. That's important. Those dudes love playing with each other, sharing the ball, lighting it up as a team, and defending hard.

Always loved Kerr. Just hope his damn back gets fixed :/

let's just put it this way.. derrick jones jr plays great on the heat. <fillintheblank> plays great on the heat. beasley underperformed, but his head wasn't on right. glad he's doing good in NY. but that was before bellichick-level coach spo.

wow at how Lebron/Cavs are turning out.. Lebron is playing awful, so much turmoil, losing by huge numbers, everyone looks depressed/discouraged.. seeing Lebron with his face in his towel last night, they have really fallen apart.

unreal.

From everything I know, alot of this falls on Lebron directly. It's like he forgot how to lose, and then how to gather his troops during these losses. Instead, he's demoralizing his troops.. Looking back, I guess Kyrie leaving was a bigger moment than I first realized. When did playing with Lebron become toxic? Last year? Or was it sooner? I'm hoping he turns it around.

Looking back, I guess Kyrie leaving was a bigger moment than I first realized. When did playing with Lebron become toxic? Last year? Or was it sooner? I'm hoping he turns it around.

The issue I see with Lebron's game is that he is way too ball dominant. He always plays the point position, not saying he can't or it's not good, but ALWAYS playing that role isnt the best use for his game. He has height and athleticism, he can jump over people and takes off 1 leg like he's on a trampoline. U know how many backdoor alleyoop pick n role lob opportunities a true pg can create for him?

The reason he is able to keep up the #s he is doing is because he is playing a stand at top of the key type game. That helps his #s, but is not the best way to play for a team to WIN.

If he were to play like he did at the time of his prime (I'd say taht is 2004-2013) he's run out of gas. But he is much better of use for a team if he didn't always play the point.

He's not a great closer, thats for sure. Cause he's not nimble enough to slide thru the defenses in game ending situations and refs don't call as many fouls at that time, so defense will just bump him if he drives..... obv they're not giving him the shot..... thats why they used to go to kyrie when game is on the line, like every time.....

IT like i predicted is overrated. His 29ppg season he was extremely on point but even that season he looked better than he was because he was the breath of fresh air in the league so refs called a foul every time he missed a shot in the lane....

this year he is no good, he really isn't at nba caliber this year..... his legs are not strong at all.... at 5'9 with no explosiveness..... u shouldn't be playing bball....



Also--- I mean I'd ask lebron this "How would YOU feel if someone always made u stand on the side while he drove and dished to you and all u can do is spot up and shoot"?

that's what he does, he makes everyone stand on the side and he tries to distribute or score..... it's like pickup basketball and he's that one ball hog in the game.....

Houston actually does the same thing, but James harden is much more affective at that than lebron, james is what 27? right now at his prime? james a much nifty scorer than lebron is right now, and houston's role players are much more active than cavs role players.... and houston has cp3 that can shoot lights out as a pg.....
