    Ira Winderman: No logic for Heat to tank
    First, the reality: NBA teams don't tank. At least not when it comes to the perception of playing to lose. Coaches coach to win; players play to win. Always. Example A was the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night at AmericanAirlines Arena. Now, that...
  • Managing Luol Deng's minutes a priority for Heat

    Heat forward Luol Deng has no problem with being on the court most of the game. If it were up to him, he would play all 48 minutes. Coach Erik Spoelstra, however, has other plans. With center Chris Bosh expected back in the lineup for Monday's game...

    ASK IRA: Is Spoelstra too optimistic about Heat's chances?
    Q: How can Erik Spoelstra say the Heat are getting "closer"? They just lost to the Jazz and 76ers, and now a tired Memphis team without Zach Randolph. -- Art. A: Um, because they might be. The first two months of the Heat's season have been a jumble...

    Spoelstra stands by lineup; Napier to D-League again

    Shabazz Napier still in plans for Heat this season

  • ASK IRA: Does Spoelstra have to reformulate because of revised rotation?

    ASK IRA: Does Spoelstra have to reformulate because of revised rotation?
    Q: I get the feeling that Erik Spoelstra is holding onto the past and not playing to his team. Shabazz Napier played the point with more confidence and with an edge. Chris Bosh needs to get the ball more in the post, not outside for jumpers. The vaunted,...
  • ASK IRA: Is Chalmers a starter by merit or default?

    ASK IRA: Is Chalmers a starter by merit or default?
    Q: To me, Mario Chalmers is a magician: He has a good game once every five or so and then disappears, poof! He shoots an occasional three, misses a ton of shots, very inconsistent and poof he is a starter! How does he do it? -- Stone, Miami. A:...

    Observations from Sunday night's 100-84 victory over the Boston Celtics at AmericanAirlines Arena: -- No Dwyane Wade, no Chris Bosh . . . no worries? -- Not exactly. -- But the Celtics were the right team at the right time. -- Just like the...
