    Leave it to Spo to take a rotation that was HUMMING after the ASB and switch it up a week before the playoffs. That is going to be the beginning of the end of our season as it looks now. There was zero reason to make that change. Amare was playing light years better than McSuck, and Whiteside running with the rooks was working great. Keep that up until the wheels fall off, why the need to massage Whiteside's ego??

    Glad to see that Dragic is an $80 million dollar player and he cant be trusted to play crunch time in the biggest game of the season. He is getting roasted by Kemba Walker and Linsanity. A rare mis-evaluation by Riley and this front office, hopefully we can unload him in the offseason, he cannot play well consistently with Wade, obvious by now...

    We did win two of the best playoff games in team history with that lineup, so I can't bag Spo that much. He probably should have done it sooner. But the real problem has become not settling on the rotation. Sometimes Amare sometimes the white devil.

    The McSuck decision is so baffling. At least Amare can make a ****ing bucket every now and then.

    Sometimes it's a close game. sometimes, your all-time great gets fouled to shoot 2 FT's to tie and send it to overtime. Sometimes, you don't get an obvious call.

    Sometimes, this game disgraces itself.

    I'm convinced there is an agenda now.

    Other than that, you gotta be ahead by more to nullify shenanigans.

    and yes, these are shenanigans.

    Tonight proved that in a close game, they are gonna screw you in a crucial spot.

    Their play was responsible for 80% of the loss, but I don;t give a **** really. leave it at that.

    I just cant blame the refs for tonight. We need to ****in box out Courtney Lee for christ sakes man! His offensive rebounds have probably saved their seasons, there is zero excuse for that, box out damnit...

    ...Why I don't bet on Basketball. The refs have agendas, either personal or mandated from the league.

    It still only would've been 2 free throws to tie.

    Far from a guarantee that we win in overtime or even stop their last play

    Run offense instead of playing ISO and get a damn rebound. That was the game

    Will say this. Not bragging....I do well betting the NBA, especially in the playoffs.

    The Lines have been ridiculous, and there is definitely some "line rigging" in the online sites. I am off to a bad start this postseason.

    Plenty of games.

    But the Heat play a paint driven style of offense, and a ball pressure, trapping defense. They are more reliant on officiating than most NBA teams. it is what it is. Normal to blame something that is a component of your style of play.

    Gonna be honest - it's a lot more fun to just blame Kevin Love. You guys should try it.

    Very disappointed. I thought they finally got their **** together for the playoffs after the first 2 games but the inconsistent Heat are still there. This team can looked so great one moment and so incompetent the next, it's really perplexing.

    I won't even comment about the refereeing anymore. It is what it is.

    Cant score 84 points in a 3 game span and be shocked you are down 3-2 Charlotte or not. I feel like Wade is starting to get a taste of what Melo deals with, it's either him or nothing.

    This HEAT team can't seriously lose FOUR STRAIGHT to the Hornets, can they?? That doesn't happen to good teams too often. ...Trying to find an angle that provides some hope.

    The thing is ..when he is not doing what he did last night (carrying the team) The Heat look like a juggernaut.

    Gotta share the ball...

    For real. Deng and Wade need to be getting similar amount of touches on offense. The offense turned into JJ and Wade dribbling out the clock and either taking long midrange shots or kicking it out to Richardson with mere seconds to hurl three balls.

    The lack of a rebound is what pissed me off the most on the 2nd to last hornets possession (I believe?) more than anything.

    I still cant believe the shot Jrich took last night at under a minute left. Possibly the worst shot attempt ive seen in years.

    It's sort of crazy to think the Heat have about an equal chance of losing in the first round and making the ECF right now.

    Huh?

    Zeller and Lee fouled Wade. that is the only one of many bad calls that matters. That replay however is very kind to the Heat.

    I was speaking of the goal-tending and Wade's foot out of bounds... not a no-call.

    On both those plays (without replay) the Heat would have had the ball.

    Wade did not goal tend. Stu Jackson came on with Ethan and said it wasn't. replay shows he hits the backboard and misses the ball. it is a judgement call by refs. they said it was clean.

    Interesting that you mention Wade's foot out of bounds. That was a reviewable play, and they got it right. Charlotte ball. Then of course..we fouled the hell out of Zeller to force FT's and they don't call the foul!

    and they say he didn't goal tend!

    So the call the Hornets fans were the most mad about...."They got it right". and the one that anybody with a brain knows was a foul..."They got it right"!

    The NBA should just get rid of the L2M reports. Just get rid of it.

    I could see someone doing VERY well betting on the NBA but you have to get hold of inside info. I mean after reading Donaghy's accounts it pretty clear that the league does what it can to actually rig games at times. Thats not paranoid fan stuff, its just true for the

    Idk if im more mad about the ****ty refs or the fact that we let that little ***** courtney lee get offensive boards consecutively.

    I dont even care about the money i invested, i just want my damn team to win.

    If there is a league motive, they want a heat vs cavs ECF, right? Right!?

    I read it, I've read most of it before, it confirms a lot of what fans have been saying for years. That Sacramento/Lakers series was a flatout fix that should have gotten the league investigated on a Federal level.
