MIAMI The Heat are one loss from bust.
At the start of the season, Miami players didn't mind putting pressure on themselves. Big man Chris Bosh called the Heat the best team in the NBA. Guard Dwyane Wade said, "If we don't win a championship, yes, it's a bust year."
Stunningly, the Heat now find themselves one game from the season possibly blowing up. And it could happen even before the NBA Finals.
The championship-tested Boston Celtics ground out a 94-90 win Tuesday night at AmericanAirlines Arena to take a 3-2 lead in the Eastern Conference finals. A loss Thursday at Boston, where Miami has dropped 15 of its past 16 regular-season and playoff games, and it's all over.
"We have no choice," said Heat forward LeBron James. "It's either win or go home."
James was only member of Miami's Big Three not to make a bold declaration at the start of the season. But, if the Heat lose the series to the Celtics, he'll end up taking ...
BEST OF MAXIM
On the eve of Game Six of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics, we turn to Green Bay Packers, Pro Bowl wide receiver, Greg Jennings for knowledge of LeBron James lack of closing abilities.
Yes. Greg Jennings.
When Jennings dropped by the Mike Heller Show on The Big 1070 in Madison, Wisconsin he was asked about LeBron not being a great closer. Here’s...
Twitter / Pflanns: Chris Bosh is still a game via kwout
Why would Miami play the guy if he's not ready to go full bore?
Either Bosh is ready or he's not.... or Spoelstra is BS'ing us and he'll play 34 minutes.
Prior to Game 4 in Boston, Erik Spoelstra remained adamant about the fact that the Heat have absolutely no timetable for the return of Chris Bosh. Bosh has been making progress and participating in on-court drills since the start of the series, but it appeared he still had some time to go on the road to recovery. Miami’s overtime loss to the Celtics in Game 4 may have accelerated...
Throughout his time in Cleveland, there were always rumors that LeBron James did not get along well with then-head coach Mike Brown. That seems to be the case anytime a team has several chances to win a championship and comes up short. If you ask Shaq, he’ll tell you LeBron never wanted to listen to Brown while he was playing under him. With that in mind, you have to wonder if...
Thanks to JHB in the shoutbox for the find.
The kid is also needed at my bedroom door for the morning when one of my broads exits and must do her own Lebron James or Dwyane Wade walk of shame to her car. [Follow me @TravisHouser]
We can't see the Boston Celtics. Their shocking and amazing run to a 3-2 advantage in the Eastern Conference Finals has been blotted out by the stars of these NBA playoffs -- Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Joey Crawford, Bill Kennedy, Derrick Stafford, Ed Malloy, Dan Crawford and Flop City.
You don't recognize those last six names? Sure you do. Their names trend...
The Celtics survive a Dwayne Wade missed three at the buzzer in overtime that would have won the game for the Heat and gave them a commanding 3-1 lead in series going back to Miami Tuesday night. Instead the Celtics have tied the series at 2 and have a chance to take back home court advantage in game 5 with a win on south beach tomorrow night. I agree with what Doc said that the...
The Boston Celtics knotted up the Eastern Conference Finals with the Miami Heat at two games a piece with an overtime victory in Game 4 in Boston. Boston led by 14 at the break, but Miami came back to tie the game early in the fourth quarter and the game went back and forth down to the closing minutes, including the mandatory debate regarding LeBron James' clutchness. That...
