I'm just wondering which HEAT team will show up? Will MIAMI compete for 48 minutes, or will they treat this game like a walk through? We know that the Raptors will come to play, will MIAMI?...TEAM HEAT since '88!

Yeah i agree! this is must win game not for sending a message BUT for coach SPO to coach the east all stars 2013 or else it's coach Mike Woodson of the knicks will coach.

The only opponent of the HEAT is themselves we know they are great and best team BUT cmmon sometimes they take it easy and drop the game before it starts.

Coach SPO FTW!!

This is a must win game for the Heat after getting whooped at Indiana and this game will decide if the Heat will stay #1 seed going into the allstar game and if Spo gets to coach the allstar team which will be a advantage for our players. Also really it would suck to lose this game and go into the allstar break in a very sour note.

Another trash team scoring loads on us. It's not even funny anymore, the only games we win are on offense and we lose a bunch of games because of our sh**ty defense... The last 2 seasons we lost games because of offense, now we lose because of defense. That to me is worrisome. Team is not looking like championship material at all.

Ray Allen is atrocious on defense. If he's not hitting his shots consistently he's a huge negative to this team.

ray has been struggling, his defense sucks and he's be struggling making threes. dumb spo needs to play rashard, miller or jj, they suck on defense too but at least they can give you some threes

This offense is getting so stale again. Spo still never established an offense for this team. It took him a year just to figure out that by playing a shooter at the 4 it opened the floor up for Wade and LeBron. Now if this team isn't making 3's at a high rate it gets easy to defend us.

      Let’s get this thing going again.
      After a remarkable end to the 2016-17 season, the HEAT retained some very important players (Dion Waiters, James Johnson) and also added some new pieces (Kelly Olynyk, Bam Adebayo). While it remains to be seen how the team will mesh, there’s still a lot of excitement surrounding Miami’s 30th season. Read more.
