BREAKING: South Florida loses out on Super Bowl 50 & 51
The Miami Heat got some good news Friday as the team continued preparing for the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.
The Miami Heat won’t be back on the court until Monday, but the biggest question surrounding the team is the health of Dwyane Wade’s knees.
Over the last two years, not having Dwyane Wade in the lineup for a playoff game would have been cause for concern for the Miami Heat. This year, a much-deeper Heat squad had a message for the injured Wade, don’t worry, we’ll take care of this.
The time for experimenting is over. P.J. Carlesimo has to play his best guys for as long as they can go.
The Miami Heat have long been locked into the top seed in the NBA playoffs but the rest of the field is almost decided as the NBA regular season wraps up this week.
The Miami Heat have spent most of the regular season on cruise control, taking a long view of being ready for the playoffs. The Heat has struggled in areas, but the team’s defense seems to be rediscovering it’s 2012 self in recent days.
Brooklyn Nets forward Reggie Evans said the Heat’s 2012 title should come with an asterisk because of the shortened season. Thursday night, the Heat showed Evans what a real champion looked like with a 105-85 blowout of Evans’ Nets team.
LeBron James had 24 points, nine rebounds and seven assists, and the Miami Heat blew out Brooklyn in the second half for a 105-85 victory Wednesday night, their 13th in a row over the Nets.
The Brooklyn Nets want to be considered one of the elite teams in the NBA, but they know to do that, they have to do something they haven’t been able to do this season, knock off the Miami Heat.
More than four hours before game time, Dwyane Wade was alone on the Miami Heat practice court, just getting some shots up by himself. No coaches around, no teammates, no trainers, just him, a ball and his thoughts.
