This is why the Atlanta Hawks wanted to start the playoffs at home. With Josh Smith delivering one rim-shaking dunk after another and plenty of teammates chipping in, the Hawks made Miami look like a one-man team, running Dwyane Wade and the Heat ragged for a 90-64 blowout in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference playoff series Sunday night.

****'n idiot coach trying out every possible lineup in the first game of the playoffs??? He's a joke and way over his head.
Experiment all season but he refused to play Beasley until an injury forced him to and now we have no clue what our rotation is.
he is not a HEAD COACH, he tries but he's not a good coach

You know its bad when your starting PG in the playoffs is a rookie. Then again we all knew it was bad when the season started and we had to use our PF as our C.
We tout DWade as MVP so obviously you can't depend on him in the playoffs cause he will get double teamed and we know we have no one to step up when he's not playing.
Try again next year, with a real roster, experience, anything besides the one man show.
Mike. we r a young team in its GAME 1 My friend. In 06, besides 2-0 deficit to Dallas, NJ NETS blew us out in game 1 of the 2nd round of the playoffs, and we were at home. Spo did mess with the rotations way too much. Everything should have stayed the same accept for beas at the 4, and have haslem come in when beasley used to, have magliore come in for JO, cook/moon/jones at guard/sf. HE PUT LINEUPS IN THAT NEVER PLAYED 2GETHER--- COME ON SPO

a little off topic, but wade SHOULD NOT GET MVP because he is a liablity. yes he scores and dishes assists, but how about his turnovers? he has the most turnovers of anybody in the league. how about when he turns it over and whines and doesnt get back on defense fast enough and the other team ends up scoring on a fastbreak? how about wade missing ft's when they matter? how is that mvp material? wade will miss 10 shots, but then when he makes a lucky, acrobatic shot, suddenly he's the best player in the nba and everyone forgets his previous misses. 8 turnovers? and seriously, im surprised no one has mention the ignorance of wade. he took the last couple of games off so he could relax. he was asked if that would make him rusty and he rplied that he will shoot himself back into rhythm. he should already know its the playoffs and no team can afford to have a player shoot large volumes of shot to get into rhythm. unfortunately, i think the heat will be swept.
off[----dwade only average 3.7 or so TO's this yr, NOT WORSE IN LEAGUE--Check facts. This guy won a title for us , U cant bash him. HE HAD A BAD GAME,. THATS IT--PERIOD---- ITS GAME 1. THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO WIN GAME 1 AND GAME 2. GIVE IT TIME, you guys r all jumpin ship 2 soon

JACKARSE--DWADE SHOT 49%, is not a volume shooter cause he gets 10 FT"s per game----GO LOOK AT KOBES SHOTS PER GAME AND AVERAGES IN 04-05 season thru 06-07 season until he got a team. THATS VOLUME SHOOTING> CHECK WADES STATS_- WHAT GAMES WERE U WATCHING ALL YEAR???? 30 pts 49% shooting, 8 assists per game. 6 boards, 2 steals and almost 2 blocks from the guard spot. GET A LIFE

PLAYOFFS??? What is this bunch of goony birds doing in the PLAYOFFS anyway???? Thank Pat Riley for this.He mortgaged the franchise for a championship and now they've been foreclosed. Who has he added since 06?? And don't tell me Beasley who was a #2.
WE WON 15 games last yr, R U KIDDING ME?? NO 15 win team has made the playoffs since 1968 the following year. You are a joke. its 1 game, we are a young team. period. We all know next summer 2010 is our year, this is gravy. They won at home , did what they are supposed to do. THEY BEAT BOSTON ALL 3 AT ATLANTA LAST YR(Ummm boston won the title). COme on, its 1 game. GET OVER IT-----lets be respectable.

Wade is GARBAGE. the dude has a little talent, but is not MVP material. way overratedand and a crybaby to boot. The championship you are all reminiscing about was stolen from the Mavericks and handed to the Heat with those ridiculous foul calls down the stretch of the latter games. calls that d-wade gets all the time and now that he isn't you see the end result and you see him whining about it while the opposing team goes down the court for a fastbreak jam.

Well ya see, Pittsburgh people happen to have some brains and do not like the stupid sport of basketball. Wow, let's play for hours, only to be tied most of the game, that's sooooooo cool!!

It's amazing how you know when I became a Steeler fan just by me posting a message here.

You being a fan of ANY south florida team alone, makes you a loser. Now stfu
