Spoelstra on Bosh: I like seeing the transformation at this time. If he's going to be the same player [as Toronto] we're in trouble."
Erik Spoelstra just made it through an entire press conference without using "identity," "process," or "truth."
Erik Spoelstra says he thinks opponents are eager "to take it to us" right now.
Spoelstra pregame bonanza live right now: "I think teams want to play us right now. Teams want to take it to us."
Do teams underestimate the Heat? Erik Spoelstra: "I don't care."
After tonight, Miami's got a stretch of 4 games in 5 nights starting Saturday. Tough test for Wade at the onset.
Spoelstra on LeBron gone:"We had about 10 min to feel sorry for ourselves. Then we tried to get ahold of CB on the other side of the world."
Spoelstra: "Competition is what drives us. It's our world. Practices are great, but everyone in that locker room wants to play for real."
Davis "blocked" Aaron Gordon's jump shot, which hit the front of the rim.
Kenny Smith, on Heat, last night on TNT, "They aren’t going to just sneak into the playoffs…they are going to do damage in the playoffs.”
Barkley, last night on TNT, "The Heat have a good team but they aren’t better than the Wizards or Toronto.”
When you watch Anthony Davis' ninth "block" you begin to realize how he has 78 more career blocks at home than away.
See four teams in the Southeast winning between 40 & 48 games. Atlanta is the one that isn't being taken seriously enough.
Thinking Toronto racks up wins for #3, b/c of division. Beal's absence hurts Wiz early. Wouldn't be surprised if SVG makes Det playoff team.

just hate what happened to Julius Randle … hated it (reported broken leg in first NBA game)
Kobe is going to burn everything to ground on his way out of the league. Get ready for a two-year bonfire in L.A.

Patrick Beverley's pregame meal. http://t.co/l0DD9K84xk
Nothin better than a game 7 for the championship. Need them royals to win this game and put on for the city.
Kobe 12 points on 11 FGA. Harden 22 points on 11 FGA.
When will I get used to seeing Pau Gasol in a Bulls jersey?
Probably the NBA threatened to take away future draft picks if Patrick Beverley comes within three feet of Kobe tonight.
The first and final 3-pointer of the Lakers season.
Four of the top six teams in college football according to this committee are from the SEC West and LSU ain't one of them. I mean, my god.
That felt like Game 8.
Anthony Davis would look so good in a Heat uniform.
Anthony Davis 24 points, 16 rebounds and 9 blocks. Halfway thru 4th quarter.
Take the crown.
Am I allowed to say I'm not a fan of the Pelicans floor design? I keep getting distracted thinking it's a faded Lion King logo.
The SEC should just get a first-round bye in college football playoffs.
