  • Heat survive 78-75 vs. Lakers, with Wade sidelined by hamstring

    Kobe Bryant couldn't hit a shot. Dwyane Wade couldn't take one. That made Tuesday night's 78-75 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center of far greater concern for the Miami Heat. Rewarding. But still of concern. "This may have been our...
  • Hamstring sidelines Wade vs. Lakers, likely longer

    Hamstring sidelines Wade vs. Lakers, likely longer
    After appearing in 22 of the past 23 games, Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade again finds himself dealing with an injury. Wade left in the first half of Tuesday's 78-75 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center with what the Heat termed a "mild...
  • Heat's preference these days is slow and steady

    The track shoes have been put in storage. What the Miami Heat have been offering these days is far more methodical than maniacal. And it's all been by design. "I like the pace we're doing," guard Dwyane Wade said before Tuesday night's game against...
  • Spoelstra sees continued desperation, to stick with Birdman as starter

    Desperate times, Erik Spoelstra said Monday, call for desperate Miami Heat. But he added they don't necessary call for a lineup change. For now, Spoelstra said after Monday's practice at UCLA, there won't be one. The Heat have won twice in their...

  • Center-centric approach paying off for Heat defense, Bosh

    Center-centric approach paying off for Heat defense, Bosh
    The debate about which center should be starting misses the point. What matters is the Miami Heat's new reality that there now are enough centers to have one on the court at all times. That means that Chris Bosh doesn't have to be one. And it...
  • Bosh, Whiteside power Heat past Clippers 104-90

    . . . or you could build on your halftime lead in the third quarter. Taking what amounted to a novel approach in the wake of their recent play, the Miami Heat stepped up after intermission instead of slouching, rolling to a 104-90 victory Sunday over...
  • Ira Winderman: Heat, Whiteside, Spoelstra take step forward

    This time, Erik Spoelstra stopped banging his head against the wall. For four seasons, the little things tended to matter little. It wasn't necessarily autopilot for the Miami Heat during the Big Three era, but troubles tended to be washed away by...
  • ASK IRA: Does it matter when/if Whiteside moves into the starting lineup?

    ASK IRA: Does it matter when/if Whiteside moves into the starting lineup?
    Q: It's official. Everyone in Heat Nation is thinking the same thing: time so start Hassan Whiteside. Not only would this return Birdman to his traditional role as spark guy off the bench, but it would also allow Chris Bosh to play his natural power...
  • Winderman's view: Heat 104, Clippers 90

    Observations from Sunday's 104-90 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers at Staples Center: -- Credit to Erik Spoelstra for starting Hassan Whiteside in the second half. -- Spoelstra can be stubborn. This time he recognized what needed to be done. --...

    Ira Winderman: Heat won't be able to back into playoffs
    It used to be these were the depths the Miami Heat would scour only when considering potential first-round postseason opponents. Now the post-LeBron James Heat find themselves amongst them, battling not necessarily for seeding, but survival. With...
