MIAMI - The Heat's philosophy this season is simple: Catch us if you can. Miami's defense was better Monday night than it had been in earlier game, but still hasn't been as sharp as it was during last season's championship run. But when you can score like the Heat can, who needs stops? The Heat gave up 53 first-half points Monday night and still cruised to a 124-99 victory over the Phoenix Suns. The Heat improved to 3-1, including 3-0 at home. The Suns (1-3) lost their second straight game, both on the road in the state of Florida. It was not the way former Heat coach Alvin Gentry wanted to celebrate his 58th birthday. Now in his fourth full season coaching the Suns, Gentry watched his team get overwhelmed by the Heat's blistering shooting. The Heat's LeBron James led all scorers with 23 points and also had a game-high 11 rebounds. Dwyane Wade had 22 points. Chris Bosh had 18 points, all of them in the first half. And Mario Chalmers had nine points,...

Remember all the rumblings during training camp that LeBron James was adding another offensive move to his repertoire?
Rumors had him adding a sky-hook shot, then there were video clips of him practicing the sky-hook.
Well, the rumors were true about the sky-hook.
James debuted his new shot against the Phoenix Suns, which went wide-right and drew some a smile from fellow teammate...
MIAMI -- LeBron James didn't think anybody would be talking about defense after the offensive show his Miami Heat put on Monday night.
The Heat scored their most points since the fifth game of last season in a 124-99 rout of Phoenix at AmericanAirlines Arena. They had a team-record eight different players make a 3-pointer while shooting 57.1 percent from beyond the arc.
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...
Norris Cole played a big role for the Miami Heat in the playoffs last season and is set to have a bigger one this year. So far, the second-year pro is showing that, especially in Monday night’s game versus the Phoenix Suns.
After Suns point guard Goran Dragic nailed a three to cut the Suns deficit to 31-25 with 2.1 seconds left remaining in the first quarter, Cole had a chance...
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...
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...
Chris Bosh and his wife Adrienne know how to plan a party. So, it’s no wonder that the Princess theme for Chris’s four-year-old daughter Trinity came out so adorable. Of course all the Disney Princesses were on hand to help Trinity celebrate. And naturally cameras as well… Trinity wasn’t the only NBA tyke with a [...]
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...
LeBron James had 23 points and 11 rebounds, Dwyane Wade scored 22 points and the Miami Heat beat the Phoenix Suns 124-99 on Monday night.
Chris Bosh finished with 18 points and Ray Allen had 15 for Miami (3-1), which is averaging 111.8 points to open the season. Allen became the 24th player in NBA history to eclipse the 23,000-point mark when he made a free throw with 1:01 left...

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.
The Miami Heat have good reason to believe they'll keep their momentum going into an upcoming two-week road swing.
They have yet to lose a home game and their final one before that trip comes Wednesday night against a Brooklyn Nets team they've beaten 10 straight times.
Two days after needing Ray Allen's late 4-point play for a narrow win over Denver, Miami's victory...
