  • Facing Mavs always brings memories for Heat

    Facing Mavs always brings memories for Heat
    The memories will likely never fade. The Miami Heat will always grow a little nostalgic when playing the Dallas Mavericks at AmericanAirlines Center. It provides opportunity to think back to when the teams met in the NBA Finals in 2006 and 2011, with...
  • ASK IRA: Are Heat playing right defense for this roster?

    ASK IRA: Are Heat playing right defense for this roster?
    Q: Any time you're blitzing high pick-and-rolls you will always have a corner three open after all the rotations go through. -- Alex. A: But that's where closeout speed comes into play. Two seasons ago, when LeBron James was still around, when Dwyane...

    Wade standing tall, in record book and lineup
    Dwyane Wade has spent most of his career playing bigger than his 6-foot-4 stature. This season, it can be seen in both the record books and in the lineup. With a blocked shot Wednesday against the Charlotte Hornets, Wade reached 700 for his career,...

  • Heat's Norris Cole not the same since opener

    Heat's Norris Cole not the same since opener
    There were a career-high 23 points on opening night. Norris Cole suddenly looked very much like a makes-sense starting point guard for the Miami Heat. Since then? Purely pedestrian, if that. By the second game of the season, Cole was down to 10...

    Winderman's view: Hornets 96, Heat 89
    Observations from Wednesday night's 96-89 loss to the Charlotte Hornets at Time Warner Cable Arena: -- No, nothing will be easy this season, certainly not anything within the division beyond the Magic. -- And certainly not anything against Charlotte,...
  • Jefferson, Hornets push past weary Heat 96-89

    Jefferson, Hornets push past weary Heat 96-89
    It was just another reminder of how things change when LeBron James leaves. For four seasons and four playoff games, Charlotte tried to beat the Big 3 Heat and failed. Then came Wednesday night and no LeBron . . . and the 20-game losing streak to...
  • ASK IRA: Are Heat's deficiencies being exposed?

    ASK IRA: Are Heat's deficiencies being exposed?
    Q: Our point guard play is not good. We need  a center. And will someone please tell Mario Chalmers to try to score instead of looking for a foul. -- Joe. A: And so it begins, the second-guessing after the euphoria of the 3-0 start. OK, I'll bite. Yes,...

    Howard, Rockets' 3s too much as Heat fall 108-91
    The team that lost Ray Allen, Shane Battier and James Jones in the offseason was caught trying to match the Houston Rockets 3-pointer for 3-pointer. The team playing without Chris Andersen and Udonis Haslem, with a Josh McRoberts still seeking for his...

    Shabazz Napier earning trust early in Heat tenure
    Shabazz Napier returned Wednesday to where this NBA journey all started. Sort of. The lingering picture of the guard out of UConn is the Charlotte Hornets cap he wore  -- briefly -- on draft night. But Wednesday night at Time Warner Cable Arena he...
