MIAMI Mike Miller is eyeing two things. One, obviously, is a first NBA title. The other? When the Miami Heat season ends, his daughter will be old enough for Miller to make another trip to the tattoo parlor. It was nearly one year ago May 19, 2011 that Jaelyn Miller was born with a ventricular septal defect, having five holes in her heart. For 10 days, she was hospitalized in the neonatal intensive care unit at a South Florida hospital, and it was two months before doctors were very confident she wouldnt need heart surgery. For nearly a month after Jaelyns birth, Miller, a sharpshooting Heat swingman, played in the postseason with his daughters health on his mind. He also had a ruptured tendon on his left thumb (non-shooting hand) he had suffered just before the start of the playoffs. The Heat ended up losing to Dallas in the Finals, with Miller finishing off a forgettable postseason. But a year later, Jaelyn is healthy. And her hand is now big enough for something her father...

Heat can't afford another loss to Knicks

MIAMI -- Here's an ideal way for the Heat to put a stop to all these questions about last-second situations. Blow out the Knicks in Wednesday's Game 5.
