That shot right there is basically how James Jones ticked off everyone who hated the Heat in the few years before this one. #cavs #celtics

Howard Chen

That #Rockets intro was pretty awesome. Actual flames shot in the air with each player's name. I feel the heat. Bring it on, playoffs...

Jason Lieser

Plenty of info in here about why #Heat's injury situation was worse than it might've looked: pbpo.st/1JTTO2k

Tom Lorenzo

Q-Pon heat checks are the worst.

Ethan J. Skolnick

If Cole had played the way he's played for New Orleans while in Miami, the Heat may have extended qualifying offer & kept him

Isaiah Canaan

Lou Will heat check 🔥🔥🔥

Rashad Mobley

It looks like its Beal's turn to heat up. The Wizards are up by 9, and the Raptors look like Washington did in the first quarter

Joseph Goodman

For Chris Bosh, the Heat's final day together before the offseason was more about coming back than leaving. hrld.us/1HjJmkZ

Ohm Youngmisuk

Truth starting to heat up here...

Jason Jackson

Loved solving the world's prob w/ you RT @DaisyCabreraPR: Loved hanging with Miami Heat broadcaster (cont) tl.gd/njfivb

Ira Winderman

Is a gradual rise the more likely Heat outcome? Latest "Ask Ira" (todays correct version) at bit.ly/1Dkm08R plus more.

Jason Lieser

#Heat's 37 wins this year almost matched the 40 that the Cavs had over their first 2 yrs post-LeBron.

Jason Lieser

#Cavs went 97-215 the 4yrs after LeBron left -- basically same record #Heat had their first 4yrs of existence (made playoffs 1 of those).

Ohm Youngmisuk

Is it me or do Raptors fans look like Miami Heat fans wearing LeBron #6 t-shirts?? http://t.co/ANocvD0T2U

Jason Lieser

Huge disappointment for #Heat to go 37-45 & miss playoffs by 1 game. For comparison, though, #Cavs went 19-63 the yr after losing LeBron.

Jason Lieser

One of NBA's loudest; Right up there w/ Heat RT @John Schuhmann PA volume here is as much an issue as crowd volume. Turn that **** down, Raps

Jason Lieser

Our @Dave_GeorgePBP sees big things ahead for the #Heat's new Big 3: pbpo.st/1Q1GiOd

Jason Lieser

#Heat are optimistic about re-signing Goran Dragic & Luol Deng. Dragic keeps saying he wants to stay: heatzone.blog.palmbeachpost.com/2015/04/17/spo…

Ira Winderman

Do Heat need to shake up back end of roster? Latest "Ask Ira" at bit.ly/1HzFLjd plus more.

Video: Wade reflects on season ending with Heat foxsports.com/florida/video/… http://t.co/ivD9316z4A via @SunSportsFOXFL

Tom Moore

Sure SH would consider RT @sixersfan911 @Tom Moore I'm saying we trade our future picks from heat and lakers to get in this draft again

Barry Jackson

Heat already several million above next year's cap even before re-signing Dragic.

Shandel Richardson

Chris Bosh expects to return to Heat an improved player fw.to/qzfssHC

John Schuhmann

Agree with this. Clips play the Heat defense worse than the Heat did. twitter.com/MikeTrudell/st…

Jared Weiss

Silver says it's a slippery slope to tell teams that players need to play, despite Spurs debacle vs Heat couple years ago.

Jason Lieser

Tyler Johnson: "The Heat have dominated the league, so I think people are celebrating this one a little bit as far as our season being over"

Ethan J. Skolnick

Jumping on @TheTicketMiami at 2:30 to talk about Heat exit interview day & NBA playoffs

Jason Lieser

#Heat are noncommittal about Hassan Whiteside playing summer league, but no reason for him not to. Might as well get the work.

Jason Lieser

Where did advanced metrics place #Heat's Hassan Whiteside this season? Top 7 in the league at any position: heatzone.blog.palmbeachpost.com/2015/04/17/hw-…

Jason Lieser

#Heat believe they'll have Whiteside in Miami for "the majority of the summer." HW also wants to go back to the Charlotte Y & ball a little.

Ira Winderman

Everything as Heat close up shop: Spo, Wade vow better times; Dragic discusses free agency; Bosh says he's back, more bit.ly/1yzrYqE

Jason Lieser

Spoelstra: "Every single year I’ve been with the Miami Heat, our goal is to contend for an NBA championship. That’s not going to change."

Barry Jackson

Even if Deng opts out of $10.1 M, Heat would still be capped out if Dragic re-signs.

Tom Haberstroh

Amid Heat's exit interviews, gotta mention H. Whiteside led NBA in pts/touch (0.85) & tied for lowest ast rate ever. bkref.com/tiny/EuCiw

Barry Jackson

Dragic says the fact Heat can offer him 5th yr (other bidders can't) is "pretty big," reiterates preference to be here longterm.

Joseph Goodman

Goran Dragic says the extra year the Heat can offer is important for free agency. Heat can offer five, everyone else four.

Jason Lieser

Goran Dragic realllly doesn't want to talk cash right now. But my interpretation is the #Heat will have him if they offer market value.

Jason Lieser

Goran Dragic says the extra year the #Heat can offer "is huge."

Jason Lieser

Goran Dragic says the #Heat meet all his criteria basketball-wise as far as free agency goes.

Jason Lieser

#Heat hoping to keep potential free agents Goran Dragic & Luol Deng. "We love them; hopefully they love us." heatzone.blog.palmbeachpost.com/2015/04/17/spo…

Joseph Goodman

In other words, it sounds like Henry Walker is going to be back with the Heat next season.

Joseph Goodman

Heat play-by-play announcer Eric Reid asks about shooter Henry Walker during exit interview. Spoelstra: "I'm glad you asked."

Joseph Goodman

Erik Spoelstra wants Hassan Whiteside to commit to a summer of work. The Heat's new center could feature in the summer leagues.

Jason Lieser

This year's 37-45 was #Heat's worst record since winning 15 games in '07-08. Ninth-worst record in franchise history.

Jason Lieser

Erik Spoelstra says #Heat are determined to make sure this kind of season (37-45) "never happens again."
