MIAMI - Chris Bosh scored 40 points, and Ray Allen haunted his former coach with a four-point play with 6.7 seconds left to lead the Miami Heat to a 119-116 win over the Denver Nuggets Saturday night. Andre Iguodala's 20-foot jumper had given Denver a 116-115 lead with 14.1 seconds left. But Allen drifted to his favorite spot on the floor -- the left corner -- took a pass from LeBron James and drained a three-pointer. He was fouled on the play and made the free throw to give the Heat a three-point lead. Danilo Gallinari missed a three-point try just before the buzzer to send Denver to its third straight defeat to start the season, all on the road. The Heat improved to 2-1, including 2-0 at home.Bosh, who had his best scoring game as a member of the Heat, made 15 of 22 shots from the field and 9 of 10 from the free-throw line. That helped Miami overcome a Denver team that outscored the Heat 72-40 in the paint. Allen, who played for Nuggets coach George Karl in Milwauk...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Ray Allen is already having an impact with the Miami Heat, while Chris Bosh is trying to continue making his own.
The Heat, though, are looking for an improved defensive effort all around.
Allen and Bosh are seeking to build on strong performances in order to help Miami to its fifth straight victory over the Phoenix Suns on Monday night.
Allen came up big in just his third game...
The Denver Nuggets lost to the Miami Heat by three points, and one may assume without watching the game — or the boxscore — that it was LeBron James that burned the Mile High Squad. Oh, No. Forget Tebow Time, it was Bosh Time in Miami. Chris Bosh boasted 40 points on 15-for-22 shooting, 7 [...]The post NBA Star Of The Night: Chris “I Get Buckets” Bosh appeared first on The NBA Mistress.
Yep, Ray Allen can still hit monstrous, clutch shots.
Allen showed Saturday night that wearing a Heat jersey won't do a thing to his ability to come through down the stretch, nailing a 3-pointer from the corner in the closing seconds to help the Heat hold off the Nuggets for a win at home.
But it wasn't just Allen's big 3 that was so impressive. Allen...
MIAMI -- This was not opening night and one final celebration of an NBA Championship.
Nor was it the season's first road game amid the unusualness produced by a storm of the century.
This was the unofficial beginning of the long grind.
The Miami Heat, despite a third straight poor defensive effort, trailed the Denver Nuggets by only one point with 14.1 seconds left Saturday...
Ray Allen, you still got it, and plenty of it. I can’t find anyone else who can put a dagger like that with six seconds left in the game the way he did Saturday night in the Miami Heat‘s 119-116 victory over the Denver Nuggets. When the Heat called a full timeout, head coach Erik Spoelstra designed a play where LeBron James would have the ball. He had the option to drive in...
I had little expectations going into the matchup Saturday between the Denver Nuggets and the Miami Heat; I told myself I wouldn’t be surprised if Denver played well — they have a habit to show up for great teams — and I wouldn’t be surprised if they were blown out. Denver showed up out of [...]The post Denver Nuggets Get Burned By Ray Allen, Miami Heat appeared first on The NBA Mistress.
When the Miami Heat need to hit a last shot in the clutch, it seems like it’s going to be literally impossible to guard them. You either need to guard LeBron James driving, but then you leave Ray Allen wide open behind the three-point line. There is also Rashard Lewis camping behind-the-arc. Let’s also not forget Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh there, too.
The Denver Nuggets were...
Ray Allen had a four-point play with 6.7 seconds left that put Miami ahead for good, Chris Bosh scored 40 points and the Heat held off the Denver Nuggets 119-116 on Saturday night.
LeBron James finished with 20 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds, and Allen scored 23 for the Heat, who escaped when Danilo Gallinari's 3-point try with two seconds left bounced off the rim.
MIAMI - Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said the fast tempo reminded him of "circa 1980s NBA." The old-school basketball worked for Miami as Chris Bosh scored 40 points, and Ray Allen haunted his former coach with a four-point play with 6.7 seconds left. That helped give the Heat a 119-116 victory over the Denver Nuggets Saturday night. Andre Iguodala's 20-foot jumper...
Doc Rivers and the Celtics need to get back to worrying about getting through the regular season
Opening night in the NBA for the Boston Celtics had almost everything. There was Kevin Garnett giving the Ray Allen “I will (bleeping) murder you” face, both the Celtics and the Heat played hard and the game even ended with a hard foul that has both teams riled up and ready to throw...
The final preseason game televised by “ESPN” before the 2007-2008 campaign, was a contest between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics. Cleveland had represented the Eastern Conference in the NBA Finals the previous June, while the Celtics had undergone a major makeover during the off-season; trading for veterans Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett, to win their first NBA Championship...
“I think probably the majority of athletes have bone spurs that they deal with at some point in their career. I don’t know if I’ll have to have surgery. I’m just saying that might be something that happens after the season. But as far as right now, my ankle feels like new since I got the shots, so hopefully I won’t have to have any surgery at all.” – Deron Williams...
