Dwyane Wade augmented his crap game against the Pacers in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Thursday by confronting coach Erik Spoelstra during a timeout. Wade had just missed a three and was late getting back on defense when the timeout was called. Spoelstra must have called him out about something, because Wade reacted in a negative manner and got in his coach’s face. Spoelstra brushed aside the incident in his postgame comments. “That happens. Anybody who has been a part of a team who has been a coach or been a player you have no idea how often things like that happen,” Spoelstra said. “That was during an emotional part of the game. We were getting our butt kicked. “Dwyane and I have been together for a long time… That was nothing… That’s the least of our concerns… Our concerns are getting ready for Sunday.” Yeah, that sort of thing isn’t infrequent, but the point is it shouldn’t be happening during key playoff games. That was just another sign that the Heat were a me

D-Wade, Spoelstra have minor confrontation

The playoffs are always an intense situation, and it is certainly not uncommon for emotions to boil over every once in a while. That is exactly what happened during the third quarter of game three of the Pacers/Heat playoff series between superstar Dwayne Wade and coach Erik Spoelstra. After Wade missed a jump shot, Pacers guard George Hill converted on a quick layup going the other...

Video: Dwyane Wade’s verbal confrontation with Erik Spoelstra

    The Indiana Pacers defeated the Miami Heat 94-75 tonight to take a 2-1 series lead in their Eastern Conference semifinals matchup.

Dwyane Wade fizzles as the Miami Heat lose to Pacers 94-75

INDIANAPOLIS –The Miami Heat can officially press the panic button. In doing so, it would be the best thing for them as the Heat and Coach Erik Spoelstra need to come to a firm understanding of what is about to happen. They are no longer in the zone where they can just cruise over teams with a mere flick of their wrist.

Wade, Spoelstra Clash During Timeout

The Flawed Partnership of LeBron and Wade

Let’s be clear:  There will be no saving LeBron James from a playoff collapse this time. There’s no excuse to be made.  You could talk about Chris Bosh’s injury being a factor, but that doesn’t change the fact that LeBron played one of his worst games of the year against Indiana last night. 22 points, 22 shots, 7 rebounds and general disinterest.  None of that stat line...

Ozzie Guillen says he would have fought Dwyane Wade in Game 3

Dwyane Wade is probably lucky it wasn’t Ozzie Guillen‘s face he was getting into during Game 3 on Thursday. Wade drew some backlash after he was seen fiercely confronting Heat coach Erik Spoelstra on the sideline during Miami’s nightmarish loss to the Pacers. Wade was ultimately separated by teammates, but Guillen says that wouldn’t have been necessary if he were in Spoelstra’s...

Miami Heat panicking? Cancel practice, media session, Wade vs. Spoelstra (video)

Last night the Indiana Pacers treated the Miami Heat like Wall Street/the U.S. Government treats anyone who opposes Goldman Sachs- total obliteration. Indiana put on the whooping stick as the Heat trailed by as many as 21. Today, the fallout continues, as the Heat cancelled their media session and practice. It’s circling the wagons time, as the presumptive favorite to win the...

The Heat Didn’t Have A Very Good Night

A for effort, but it doesn't make much sense. Dwyane Wade was pissed that the Indiana Pacers were celebrating their Game 2 win in Miami earlier this week, and he was pissed that the refs weren’t calling fouls the way he’d prefer. So when most people expected him to respond with a Dwyane Wade game in Indiana last night, he shocked everyone when he barely showed up with a Harold...

Choke city in effect in Miami as Pacers choke less for 78-75 victory to even series

Miami, FL -  This game was brutal to watch.  The Pacers blew an 11 point lead only to trail late in the fourth quarter.   Indiana missed 24 out of their 29 shots in the quarter, were outscored by Lebron James and Dwyane Wade in the fourth, yet somehow won this game. Both teams had chances to take the lead with free throws.  Both teams combined for 2-8 in the final minute...

Video Diary of Miami's forgettable game three

We start with this one here.  This has been the common opinion about Lebron James these days (well years).  Although not much statistical evidence backs this up, a lot of moments like this help the anti-Lebron team's case. Anyways, you never want a rookie showing you up on national tv.  Think Lebron will see this video soon? Ah, Dwyane Wade...
