Chris Bosh was the only player for the Heat to start in both games against Dallas this season. Two games, nine different starters.
BOSH: “We kind of went back to what we’re known for, which is forgetting everything as soon as the game gets a little tight.”
The Heat is 18.5 games behind the top team in the East before the All-Star break ... and SEVENTH IN THE STANDINGS. What?
You guys have been through a lot of stuff. Bosh: "I'd use a different word." A lot of things. "Nope. My word still starts with S."
Bosh: "All we can do is move on to Boston and watch the Super Bowl.”
Though Spoelstra said he should have put Whiteside back in the game sooner in the fourth quarter, he said Whiteside has no minutes limit.
Whiteside had 24 rebounds in 28 minutes and the Heat wouldn't play him with the game getting away. Bizarre and I'll leave it at that.
How's the broadcasting gig? Battier: "Good." Are you good at it? "No."
Bosh was getting double-teamed and "you have to trust your guys to make something happen and we continued to miss plays."
Bosh: "We went back to what we’re known for: forgetting everything as soon as the game gets a little tight. Execution went out the window.”
Dirk on Whiteside: "I think I gave him all 10 of his offensive rebounds.... That's a nice find, for sure."
Dirk on Charlie V's game: "Since I was insanely cold, it was good."
Whiteside on watching run from bench: "That's a question for Coach Spo." Says he doesn't talk to him about minutes.
Hassan Whiteside on sitting during Dallas' big run: "That's a question for Coach Spo. I watched it just like y'all."
Hassan Whiteside said he wasn't fatigued. Says you have to ask Spoelstra about who plays how many minutes.
Hassan Whiteside said is mid-range game is "just something y'all hadn't seen. I could always shoot."
Erik Spoelstra on Deng (calf): "He did a little more today and he's going to travel with us (for Sunday at Boston)."
Erik Spoelstra says no minutes limit on Hassan Whiteside (ankle). He was just fatigued.
Erik Spoelstra: "Let's lace them up & get right back at it. That's the best thing for us."
Spoelstra says looking back, he should have put Whiteside back in sooner after Mavericks went small
