    <3 UD


    The morning after the 98-93 victory still had the Heat fired up.

    "I think we definitely turned it up a little bit," forward Udonis Haslem said during a morning appearance on WQAM. "We were a little frustrated. We got two pretty hard fouls coming from those guys on that end."

    While both James and Haslem downplayed Westbrook's foul as one of exuberance in the heat of the moment, Haslem pointedly took umbrage to Perkins' shove against Wade.

    Recall, earlier this season Perkins derided James for drawing attention to Blake Griffin's highlight-of-the-season dunk on Perkins. Perkins also has a push-come-to-shove history with the Heat dating to his tenure with the Boston Celtics.

    That had Haslem firing back on his radio appearance.

    "I think sometimes people just use the TVs and the cameras and the crowd, you know, to put on a show," Haslem said of Perkins. "I don't think he's all that he shows out there on the court.

    "I think anybody can be a tough guy with a thousand people watching on TV and referees who call fouls and stop the game and different things like that. I don't seeing him being any tough guy that he puts on the show to be, at all."

    Haslem didn't stop there.

    "If we were playing at the park, I don't think he'd be doing all that," Haslem said.

    While the Heat did not retaliate physically against the Thunder, Haslem spent the balance of the night giving Perkins an earful.

    "I voiced my opinion a little bit," Haslem said. "Not entitled to say what I said last night, but I got a little bit off my chest.

    "Where I'm from, all the talking and playing like that, if some point it comes to a situation where you've got to back it up, he's never had to back it up, because obviously referees always step in."

    Soon the league may step in. Wednesday's technical foul was Perkins' 12th of the season. A player is suspended for a game once he reaches 13.

    Physical play figures to become more common as the April 28 start of the playoffs draws closer.

    "You never want to come into a game expecting somebody to make a dirty play," Haslem said. "You never want to come into the game expecting that type of play from somebody. But I think Dwyane and LeBron, being the big attackers they are, they definitely have to be conscious of protecting themselves every time they attack the basket."

    Wade took it a step further, rounding up his teammates, in his role as co-captain with Haslem, amid Wednesday's second-quarter tension.

    "I said, 'Look what they're doing to us, look at what they're doing to our guys,' " Wade said following Wednesday's game, with the Heat given Thursday off in advance of Friday's visit by the Memphis Grizzlies. "When it's time for these kind of games, we have guys who can step up and do it."

    He then offered a most curious choice of words, considering that last season Thunder forward Kevin Durant called Heat forward Chris Bosh one of the league's "fake tough guys."

    "We're not fake tough guys, we're not TV thugs," Wade continued. "We go out and play basketball. When it's time to get into the fight, we have a lot of guys who can get into it."

    Or, in this case, perhaps use it for season-turning motivation.

    "Everybody else has a truth about our team," coach Erik Spoelstra said, "but we're not afraid of these type of games."

    lmao at people on this board who think Perkins would fuck up UD. UD is one of the few players that I've always felt could get arrested at anytime for curb stomping a nigga.

    I love how espn turns yesterdays game into showing how OKC has the advantage because they played so bad

    I'm pretty sure the heat shot under 38% and still won

    Dwade played below average. Bosh played bad. Despite his 9 turnovers, Durant still scored 30, Westbrook still had 28. The Heat played just as bad as OKC did(if not worse). What's ESPN trying to say?

    guy needs a couple minutes every game in the 2nd quarter to see if his shot is falling. if it is, leave him in, if not he can return to the bench.

    The reason I don't mind Bosh fucking up and playing like a raptor who just did 7 whipits is because he tries.

    When LeBron or DWade dont try it is infectious to everyone on this team; even Haslem.

    I have zero faith in this team to win a championship.

    sadly, i agree. we look so soft.
  31. Fusiontegra

    Fusiontegra Yeah, but how do you feel about Faulkner?

    I mean, I won't be surprised if they turn on the D in the next 2 weeks, and we push to the Finals.

    I'm just incredibly scared that we're only as good as Bosh is on any given night.
  32. Hoosier

    I am. This team has three all world players and we can't beat the celtics at home

    Bosh had hardly been all-world.

    You're such a fucking pussy. We had a losing record against all the top teams in the East last season and still made the Finals. Stop being a raging faggot for once in your life.

    We're pretty much playing the same teams this year as we did last year, and the C's are older. It's no sweat really.

    am16401 Did you see Regis this morning?

    Damn I hate being a sports fan down here people hit the panic button so fucking much, been saying for two months wake me when the playoffs start because this team has shown they have no real drive in the regular season to be great(no chance of them ever chasing the bulls record like I once thought would be a possibility on year) so why bother. Hell listen to Wades comments after game talking about how they're just preparing for the playoffs and if people don't have faith in them after what they have proven before then oh well.

    At this point the only thing that pisses me off about them losing a game is I know it will bring hoosier bitchin ass out the woods to complain. Like Gibbs said the only time he something to say is when its negative.

    How does Bosh manage to completely disappear in every single big game? That nigga owe's Wade and LeBron money.

    Crazy thing about Bosh is he played fine offense in fourth wasn't he like 3/5 for like 9 pts and 3 orbs? Defensively what the hell was that shit LOL its like Doc called the give whoever Bosh is guarding the ball and everyone else get out the way offense.

    Anyway anyone still wonder why JJ doesn't play much just look at some of the blown defensive rotations by him in second quarter. Sucks because I like JJ, but you can't be worried about the three point shooter when a man is flashing to front of the rim that Riley defense 101 right there.
  43. three stacks

    three stacks call me a square, friend i don't care

    JJ was getting destroyed by ray allen in the 2nd
  44. mpl92

    mpl92 netflix on your couch

    So yeah that's 19 of the last 20 games that Bosh has been held under double digit rebounding.
  45. Xander Crews

    Xander Crews You people and your slight differences disgust me

    I'm not panicking. We'll prob lose 1/2 against the bulls too, and skip bayless will yell about how they don't have what it takes. Wonder if we're gonna rest the big 3 anytime during the last few games
  46. Xander Crews

    Xander Crews You people and your slight differences disgust me

    This is what does worry me. Bosh was huge at times during the playoffs. Or at least he wasn't a liability. Idk if its the compressed season or what, but he's playing terrible for 90% of each game

    I've been saying for a while, SPO MUST GO. We may be able to win a championship in spite of his coaching deficiencies, but we will never reach our full potential with him as our coach. He has no offensive imagination/ability as a coach whatsoever. He can be a good defensive coach, but that's it. Wade and Lebron run that team. Thibs is 10x the coach that Spo is and it shows in the standings. Doc is also a hell of a lot better coach than Spo.
  48. LHPgator

    And Bosh never ceases to frustrate shit out of me.

    Yep going to Chip Kelly and Oregon to restructure the offense really shows a guy who lacks creativity. :meh: Any time the Miami Heat score 107 against the Boston Celtics, they should win by at least 15. The offense is not the problem.
