"RAN OUT OF GAS" APPARENTLY AFTER THEY BLEW THERE WAD IN THE FIRST QUARTER,THE OLD SCLEPS COULDN'T SUSTAIN THE INTENSITY AND THE YOUNGER MORE ATHLETIC TEAM WON.
I FEEL SORRY FOR YOU PEOPLE WHO THINK THIS TEAM IS SOMEHOW GOING TURN IT AROUND AND WERE MISLED BY THE 9 GAME STREAK. LET ME EXPLAIN IT TO YOU AGAIN IF YOU DON'T QUITE UNDERSTAND IT YET.
YOU HAVE TWO STARS O'NEAL & WADE, O'NEAL IS DECLINING,OVER USED AND SACRIFICIAL LAMB WADE IS OUT. WHAT YOU GOT LEFT IS A BUNCH OF OLD FARTS THAT CAN'T BEAT ANYBODY. SO TEAMS FOUND OUT IF YOU TAKE O'NEAL OUT,THE REST OF THE SCLHEPS CAN'T BEAT YOU! SO THAT'S THE GAME PLAN FROM NOW ON.
SO FORGET ABOUT THE PLAYOFFS,THIS TEAM LIKE I SAID IN THE BEGINING SHOULD HAVE RETOOLED.

Two words. ANTOINE WALKER. He is a complete BUM. For EVERY decent play he makes, he commits 2-3 BONEHEADED plays such as stupid turnovers, taking unwarranted three-pointers early in the shot-clock, etc.

I have NEVER in my life seen a player, who at one point in their career was actually considered to be a FRANCHISE PLAYER, as incapable of smart team basketball. Antoine Walker is without a doubt, in my view at least, the WORST player the Heat has EVER had sitting on its bench. While he definitely contributes enough points on the rare occasion to overcome his PATHETIC blunders, and actually help win a game for the Heat, 9 times out of 10 he is an absolute detriment.

Bottom line? Having Antoin'e Walker on the Heat has cost Miami a MINIMUM of 10 wins.

I said it after they lost to the Pacers and I'll say it again. IT IS NOT ABOUT AGE!!! They are settling for jump shots. This has been happening for the past 2 years. When Wade plays he balances that out, which is why it wasn't that noticeable when Wade was in the lineup, night in and night out.
In the Philly game they had around 28 points in the paint in the first half, which is when they were in control. Then, in the second half, they decided to shoot 3's instead of doing what was working for them in the first half. This team is 27th out of 30 teams in 3-point percentage.
If the other teams want to crowd Shaq, then the others should look to be more aggressive going to the basket and not trying to jack up all those 3's UNLESS they really have a chance to make them.

if we are going to call out players not just walker. j will was 2-10 at the 3 pt line. at one point of the game walker did do some good things last night... we must put that out there. d-wright he has to do more wayne also. and earl baron why does it seem like he does good in the "summer league" and nothing in the season. doleac at least gives you a pick and pop when he comes in. everyone has to play a role in order for this to work.. when your number is called you must play. if zo comes off the bench and after his illness and gives all he has.. well young guys such as wayne, earl, dorrell, have to step up. and why didnt chris quin play last night? iam still a die hard fan ,and lucky for us washington keeps losing!!!! that 3 spot is still in sight!! LETS GO HEAT!

The Heat is a bunch of over paid, underachieving prima donnas. When they won last year it was a joke on the NBA. This time they'll be lucky to beat Washington.

Way to give up and kick your team when they are down...... Some fans! Let's Go Heat!!! Washington is losing just like we are so someone is going to win and it will be the Heat and the SouthEast will be ours. Them winning the NBA Title last year was not a joke but all HEART, and dont forget, b.c Dallas still aint got over it yet.

JUST LIKE I SAID "OLD FARTS" AND OUT OF GAS! YOUR ANOTHER GUY THAT CAN'T FIGURE IT OUT. IN FACT YOU COUNTERDICTED YOURSELF BY SAYING THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN MORE AGGRESSIVE. WHEN YOUR TIRED AND DON'T HAVE THE "ENERGY" TO TAKE THE EASY WAY OUT AND SHOOT 3'S AND JUMPERS. SO THINK ABOUT IT BEFORE YOU SAY ANYTHING.

YOUR COMMENT JUST TELLS HOW SMART YOU REALLY ARE! IF YOU'RE TIRED, YOU ARE JUST TIRED PERIOD. THEY DON'T START SHOOOTING 3'S BECAUSE THEY ARE TIRED, THEY SHOOT THEM BECAUSE OF BAD DECISIONS BY PLAYERS AND/OR COACHES. THEY DON'T SUDDENLY GO FROM BEING AGGRESSIVE AND HAVING A BALANCED ATTACK IN THE FIRTS HALF, TO BEING OLD AND A JUMP SHOOTING TEAM IN THE SECOND HALF BECAUSE THEY ARE TIRED. SO YOU SHOULD BE THE ONE WHO SHOULD THINK BEFORE THEY WRITE. DON'T BOTHER RESPONDING, BECAUSE I WON'T WASTE ANYMORE OF MY TIME WITH IGNORANTS LIKE YOU.
