HoopsHype Miami Heat twitter
Just got the Blue Screen of Death during a live video chat. Weeeeeeeee!
Heat, Carnival, Arisons announce they have raised more than $1.5 million for Philippines typhoon relief efforts.
The Knicks are 3 games out of first place and 3 games away from 0-16. Your Atlantic Division, everybody!
Next Tuesday's Heat-Pacers among five games up for vote for NBA TV's "Fan Night" showcase. You can go ahead and book it, regardless of vote.
Brooklyn's "All-Star" starting lineup has played just 78 minutes of team's 874 minutes this season. More like Broken Nets. /showshimselfout
I need a comprehensive of the other hashtags that circulate during Heat games.
Can't wait to go to Oracle for two games next week. Two!!
I know Ray Allen says shooting ability isn't a gift. But man, that feel Steph has is God-given. Can't learn that.
Now let's see if 4Q at Oracle is as good.
I'm telling you, fourth qtrs at the Sleep Train (lol) are must-watch stuff.
Chris Bosh says he's stopped watching other NBA games because it drives him crazy how much better teams play against Heat.
Chris Bosh: "We got beat, but it was a good run, and maybe it's what this team needs right now, going on this road trip."
LeBron on the trip: "We'll have to pull together now, since we're going to four cold cities. Keep each other warm."
LeBron says he told Beasley to stop trying to fit in so much; and just play.
LeBron is going that thing where he recalls every play in the game during his post-game presser.
Why did LeBron ask out early? "Just the pace of the game."
Spoelstra: "I don't think anybody really played great defensively tonight."
Spoelstra says LeBron asked out of game because of "speed and quickness of the game," not due to illness.
Spoelstra: "We didn't really play well in a lot of facets of the game. Their speed, quickness jumped all over us."
First time this season the Heat have shot below league average in a game. Win streak ends at 10.
No real offensive flow for the Heat at any point this game.
No multiple Bosh 3-pointers to bail out the Heat. The Pistons were the better team on this night. Wade could have helped down the stretch.
Crazy stat lines building in that Magic-Sixers game.
Pistons beat Miami, 107-97. Seven Pistons in double figures. LeBron & Beasley w/ 23 each. Miami now 14-4, headed on road for four.
Heat fought the jorts and the jorts won.
Miami with 18 turnovers tonight, and Detroit with 29 points off them. Detroit with 22 turnovers, Miami with just 14 points off them.
How do I know Brandon Jennings stripped LeBron cleanly there? LeBron didn't even bother looking at the ref.
Heat had three chances to cut lead to 1, or tie, and didn't. Now appear out of gas. Detroit up 100-91, 2:07 left.
LeBron breaking into Chalmers face http://t.co/oco3xN8kMD
Mo Cheeks was yelling at Brandon Jennings... after he made that 3. This might be the toughest coaching job in sports.
Josh Smith still in running for Heat star of the game.
LeBron helping off Josh Smith so much, Smith can't help but take the three... and shoot an airball.
Josh Smith will shoot the Heat into the lead.
Michael Beasley looks stunned that he didn't get called for a foul there.
Cheeks needs to get Singler back on the court. Miami able to overplay everything, no fear of a J.
14pt comeback on Sunday night working on 18pt comeback tonight - it may not be the “right way” but winning is winning if ya pull it out
LeBron joins the comeback party with a dunk on the break. Pistons lead 91-88, but are beginning to bicker a bit.
LIke I said, Josh Smith would shoot the Heat back into this game. He's now 6-of-19.
Again, Cole earns the crunch time minutes, with Chalmers. And again, Josh Smith being Josh Smith.
Chalmers and Bosh in. Andersen and Allen out.
Why Michael Beasley? This is why.
LeBron at scorer's table. Bench did its job.
Andersen's given the Heat good energy, but -- since Spoelstra won't play them together -- figure that Bosh gets up soon.
A reminder that Norris Cole entered the game at plus-112, best on the Heat by a good margin.
Detroit's offense has looked much better with Singler on the court tonight. No spacing otherwise.
Norris Cole with his own mini-run, and it's 85-74 Detroit. Huge improvement for him, in knowing when to attack.
And his name is Norris Cole!
Pistons hold off Heat rally, now lead 82-68 entering the fourth. Detroit shooting 51.6 percent, even with Josh Smith struggling.
Pistons 82, Heat 68 after three. Does Bosh have any 3-pointers left in him?
LeBron leaves w/ 20/5/5. His return may depend on whether his teammates can get it to single digits without him.
You know LeBron's not feeling great when he responds to calls he doesn't like by drooping his head, rather than stomping around.
This is a good energy group for Heat. If Beasley & Allen defend, even a little, Spoelstra can stay with it.
What kind of night is this? Heat pull within 11 of Pistons in third quarter and crowd goes wild.
Beasley earlier and ahead of Lewis in second half.
Josh Smith is now 6-of-17. Miami should stop guarding him outside of 8 feet.
LeBron getting his wind, hands on hips. Not sure if he has energy tonight to put team on his back.
Crowd trying to get Heat going, which is different.
LeBron just did that thing where he doesn't really want someone to score.
If Jones isn't shoioting, might as well move in another direction.
Ray Allen at scorer's table. Will replace Jones, who has been passing on open looks.
Heat's defensive rotations there were atrocious. Pistons, 66-50.
Brandon Jennings will pass the Heat back into this game.
Bosh finally joining the fray.
Drummond picks up fourth foul (questionable) barely a minute into third qtr. Replaced by Singler.
Josh Smith will shoot the Heat back into this game.
Fourth foul on Drummond with 11:09 to play in third, that mitigates much of Detroit's height edge.
With just a little bit of Chris Bosh this could be far easier.
Beasley's shot remains a 3. Pistons 54, Heat 43 at half.
Make that 16 for LeBron.
Pistons leading the Heat, aka Bron and the Beas, 54-43 at half. Heat shooting 38.1%, Pistons 47.7. Drummond 11 boards.
Reviewing a 3-pointer by Beasley that was called a 3 at 1:45 to play in second period.
Pistons 54, Heat 43 at half. Heat had been down 18. LeBron with 14, Josh Smith with 13. But now a review.
Detroit leads Miami, 54-43, at the half. LeBron, sluggish at times, & still with 16/4/2 on 6-of-10 shooting. Josh Smith has 13 & 4.
Beasley on Josh Smith. It's the 2009 playoffs all over again.
Beasley made up for a blown rotation there. But his second half minutes will shrink if he doesn't lock in defensively.
Beasley taketh and giveth.
Ray Allen doing the talking in a Heat player huddle. They're overthinking things. Pistons just playing. And winning.
Ray Allen with his hand on Beasley's shoulder during timeout, instructing.
