A real shame that the game was so late that hardly anyone saw it end.

Man these guys are fun to watch again. They don't have the size to match up against huge front courts, but waht they lack in size they make up for in heart and effort. Udonis, you have made me into a believer. For years I use to wonder why all my heat bashing fans rave about you. They hated everyone else but said Haslem's the man. I used to wonder, what they were seeing that I didn't. Your stats, and missed open shots didn't impress me. Now, I have seen the light, you are homegrown talent, you are relentless on the boards (given your size), and like Shaq recently is quoted as sayin, "haslem is someone who will never give up". Now this year I've seen your offensive game develop, you no longer look afraid to take open shots. Congrats, early candidate for most improved (in my opinion). Six more wins and we've equaled last year's total. We are a team on the rise again, If Beasley, Quinn and Chalmers continue developing, and Maaglore(?) can turn into a shot blocking/ rebounding center whose not to concerned with demanding the ball be passed to him in the post to score, and James Jones returns, the 2nd half of the season could be pretty interesting.

Luckily I saw the last 3 minutes and overtime. I fell asleep in the 1st quarter, since I have to be awake at 6:00 AM, but I was awaken just in time for the exciting conclusion, plus OT. Those 10:30 PM start times are tough during the work week.

I haven't been that psyched about a Heat game since Game 6 of the Finals in '06.

one of the best heat games i've seen

up there with the game vs dallas at home when rafer hit the 3 to win

and up there when rex chapman hit tons of threes to beat jordan and the bulls when the heat only had 8 men dressed

and of course the entire 06 playoffs

Huge win very impressed with the HEART displayed by D-Wade, Beasley, Quinn and Haslem. However, I am still dissapointed in the way Spoelstra is handling Beasley. Too much like Pat Riley. Let the kid play!!! He is a natural! D-Wade was not that good of a defender as a rookie and still is not that good. Becoming a good defender in the NBA takes time. But Wade needs help on the offensive end now. Run at least 12 plays a game for beasley and he will become a twenty point a night scorer. I mean what am i watching Joel Anthony taking 10 feet jumpers with 14 seconds left on the shot clock while Beasley is on the floor and D-Wade is taking a break. I watched the entire game (sleep deprived) Spoelstra has to correct this or we will all be heart broken by mid January. Wade will be run down with nagging injuries and will be left to ponder next year! And just so you know I coach teach and played the game through college. Go Heat!!!!!!

GREAT WIN!! Beasley could have helped
Miami win the one lost in the last few seconds if he had been in the game!
You can't help the team win sitting on the bench. Mike maybe young but the Coach is inexperienced. They could
help each other have a great season.
If Spoelstra had the guts to let Beasley play we would not have to
suffer through last minute wins. Two
to five players with 20, 30 and 40
points is an easy win - and everyone
contributing some good defense.
Basketball is a T-E-A-M sport, therefore, the entire must play well, not just one player. The Heat could
have more wins if the Coach, D. Wade and Pat Riley focused on TEAM FIRST, but "the past is prologue". Let's make the changes needed to win better than 500 ball which is not good enough, that stat only makes you average!
PS: If they are still intent on teaching Mike how to play better defense, please take a look at the
stats and invite all players who seem to need better coaching in that area to join the classes.
Some need to improve their shooting
percentages and reduce the number of
turnover.
Good to see positive movement, keep it up.
