Good news: We are still very early into the conference semifinals, meaning there is still a lot more trash-talking to be had, buzzer-beaters to be made and dunks to be slammed for the rest of the playoffs.

Bad news: We are already in May at the conference semifinals, meaning in a little over one month the NBA season will be over. And that sucks. Read More »

Going into Game 4 against the Charlotte Bobcats on Monday night, the Heat needed one more victory to sweep the first round (before tonight they were the only higher-seeded team to lead their series). Charlotte was not going down without a fight, as they actually had the lead at halftime, 54-52. Yet, one moment was all that LeBron James needed to spark his team to surge ahead and never look back.

LeBron James Denies Staring Down Michael Jordan Before Jam

LeBron James

For the last couple years, as LeBron James has cemented his place as one of the greatest players in the history of the NBA, the debate about where he ranks next to the GOAT, Michael Jordan, has gotten almost as loud as the Kobe-MJ back-and-forth. Their connection took a strange turn last night when most outlets reported James had locked eyes with the former Bulls great during the Heat’s Game 3 win over the Bobcats in Charlotte. Read More »

Despite a tendency to relax after a pretty overwhelming Game 1 win at home, the Heat held on against a feisty Bobcats squad that had to deal with a tough injury to the focal point of their offense. But LeBron James was active all night, scoring 32 on just 17, handling a pretty tough foul, involving his teammates and throwing down a sick breakaway rim-rocker. Read More »

The Heat went up 2-0 on the Bobcats Wednesday night in Miami — they’re the only home team to do so in the first round — and LeBron James led the way with 32 points, eight assists, six rebounds, and four steals. Josh McRoberts had eight points, four assists, a lone rebound and a forearm shiver that almost popped LeBron’s Adam’s Apple through his larynx and out the back of his neck. It was just a foul, though. Read More »

It is no secret the Miami Heat are one of the best fast-break teams in the league, but in the third quarter of Game 2 between the Heat and Bobcats, Gerald Henderson prevented Miami from an easy, transition bucket in impressive fashion. Mario Chalmers pump-faked the long jumper and dished a sweet bounce pass to Udonis Haslem, who was driving down the middle of the lane. Haslem thought he had a monster jam, but Henderson timed his jump perfectly and swatted away Haslem’s attempt. Read More »

Al Jefferson & Pat Beverley Prepare To Play In Pain Because It’s The Playoffs

Al Jefferson, Chris Andersen

There were a couple of injuries in the opening weekend of the 2014 NBA Playoffs that could mean early exits for the team’s involved. Al Jefferson briefly left Game 1 between the Heat and Bobcats after a plantar fascia injury in the first quarter. Patrick Beverley appeared to strain the same right knee whose meniscus he tore late in the regular season, but stayed in Game 1 against the Blazers. Both injuries could spell doom for their respective teams even as both players plan to grit through the pain for the playoffs. Read More »
