Found May 15, 2012 on PRO HOOPS CENTRAL:
David West notched a double-double and would score the game winning bucket while the Indiana Pacers held the Miami Heat scoreless for the last 2:51 of the game, as Indiana held off the Heat in game two of their Eastern Conference semi-final series, winning the game 78-75 and knotting up the series at one game apiece. The victory for the Pacers took away Miami’s home-court advantage in the match-up with the action moving to Indiana for the next two contests. The Heat were playing without Chris Bosh who is out indefinitely with a strained abdominal muscle and although LeBron James knocked down a game high 28 points while Dwyane Wade added 24 in the contest; none of the other members of the roster stepped up to fill in the void. The club shot an anemic 34.6% (27-78) and while they stayed in the contest until the end of the action; they were unable to close the game out with Bosh on the sidelines. Their task will become even harder in game three as they play in front of a charged-up au...

Chris Bosh assures nurse his teammates will be there before visiting hours are over

MIAMI—Chris Bosh won’t be taking the floor for the remainder of his team’s series against the Pacers, but he's wholly convinced he is still an integral and valued member of the Heat and has assured the nursing staff at his rehab clinic that his teammates would definitely be by to see him before visiting hours conclude today. “They’ll be here any moment,” Bosh...

Heat's offense suffers without Bosh in Game 2

MIAMI Chris Bosh is most appreciated when he doesn't play. In March, the Miami big man missed three games and the Heat lost two, to Utah and the Lakers. That sparked a minor panic about Miami's lack of size. Bosh soon returned and again was mostly forgotten about. The acclaim went to Heat perimeter stars LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. Well, Bosh is out again. And, judging...

Indiana Pacers Shock LeBron James, Heat, Spurs Blast Clippers to Take Series Lead

MIAMI -- This does not sound like a winning formula. Miss 24 of 29 shots in one stretch, on the road. Watch an 11-point, second-half lead turn into a deficit. Have your entire team get outscored by two players in the fourth quarter. Somehow, it worked for the Indiana Pacers. And with one part of the Big Three gone, the Miami Heat might have a very big problem. Read more about this game, here.

Wade: 'No harm done' after blowup

Dwyane Wade says the Miami Heat have moved on from Game 3 when he had his public spat with coach Erik Spoelstra. Following the team's practice Saturday, Wade chalked up his heated sideline exchange in the third quarter of a 94-75 blowout loss to the Indiana Pacers with Spoelstra as ''emotional and in the heat of the battle.'' Wade said it wasn't his first...

Agent says Greg Oden wants to play for the Miami Heat

No one knows if Greg Oden will ever play in the NBA again. He hasn’t played since the 2009-2010 season and in a wide ranging Grantland piece he says he has decided to take next season off to rehab. If and when Oden is healthy, a few teams will undoubtedly step up to the plate to take a chance him. As for Oden’s preference on landing spots, his agent Mike Conley Sr. says that...

Sans Bosh, LeBron and Wade will fall to the Boston Celtics

With their second-round playoff series against the Pacers tied at 1-1, the Miami Heat will again attempt to adjust to life without power forward Chris Bosh tomorrow night in Game 3 at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana. The … Continue reading →

Let's See How Good the Heat's Superstar Duo Really Is

We all know about the hype that comes with the Miami Heat's "Big 3" that includes Dwayne Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh. I have been one of the biggest critics of the "Big 3," calling them the "Big 2 and a really good role player." Bosh would be the role player in my eyes because I never thought he was that great when he was the man on the Toronto...

POTD 5/15/12: Dahntay Jones on Shane Battier

Shane Battier got dunked on, but Dwyane Wade is the man who really got humiliated here.  No disrespect to Dahntay Jones, but he’s one of those guys who makes his coach nervous when he puts the ball on the floor.  On this particular play, however, he was able to freeze D-Wade with basic hesitation move before exploding past him for the easy finish. Don’t worry, Dwyane.  Kobe...

Dwyane Wade gets no punishment for flattening Darren Collison

Last night, a frustrated Dwyane Wade clearly shoved Darren Collison to the ground in transition, earning himself a flagrant 1 foul. Many people immediately compared it to the Jason Smith foul on Blake Griffin, which was called a Flagrant 2, and earned Smith a 2 game suspension. Even though the plays are similar, the league saw fit to not only not upgrade Wade's foul...

Chris Bosh suffered a strain abdominal muscle on this play during the second quarter of the game on [...]

Conference Semifinals Chat With Justin Hull

I was able to join Justin Hull on "The Home Stretch" to chat about Chris Bosh's injury and how it impacts the Miami Heat, the possability of Indiana and Philadelphia playing in the Eastern Conference Finals, if anybody from the Eastern Conference can put up a fight in the NBA Finals, the Lakers looking rusty in Game 1 and the long-term impact of Derrick Rose's injury.

Heat,Pacers going down to the wire

A little tie up between LeBron James and Danny Granger could be exactly what’s needed to stir up this year’s playoffs. Yes, it was miniscule and didn’t have any implications on the game, but then you see David West and Mario Chalmers getting tangled up and then things start to get interesting. Preceded by Indiana Pacers Head Coach Frank Vogel calling out the Heat for their...
