    "I would love to win every game against all the top teams," Wade said. "Sometimes you do, sometimes you don't. All you need to do during the regular season is work your game."




    So, Wade and Lebron don't care about losing to the Pacers, yet they both played over 40 minute. Riiiiiiiight.
    And were visibly agitated as the Pacers pulled away

    I think you go small at times maybe too. Lance on Wade, Paul on Lebron, Danny on Bosh.
    Danny has guarded Bosh very well in the past. I wouldn't do it for long stretches, but in a pinch it would be interesting as a change of pace.

    Remember this team was the best road team in the East last year, can you get that mojo back with Danny's return?
    Wouldn't shock me. We rode Danny to get a lot of those road victories.

    And sometimes you don't win any of them am I right Dwyane? (Heat are 0-5 against the Pacers, Knicks, and Bulls this season)

    It's a good way to get Lance minutes without asking him to play the 1. I think in crunch time vs. Miami your offense/defense sub is West for Hibbert.

    I remember when people thought that Miami had a chance to win 70 games in a season, I don't see that happening.

    Not with the way Bosh has regressed when team's get physical with him.

    Just watched the NBA.com highlight reel for the game. I hadn't noticed the first time, but when PG hits that fade away jumper on Lebron, James clearly puts his open palm on PG's chest and gives him a little assistance toward the floor and out of bounds.

    Didn't Michael Wilbon say the Heat would win 75 or 76?

    I'm rather surprised both called us a "top team" to be honest.

    That's what I noticed as well. They've always tried to downplay us as some wannabe team that doesn't deserve their respect.

    We have MADE them change that tune.

    That quote was in response to a question about them being winless against the top 5 teams in the east or something, not specifically about us.

    Some interesting data taken from ESPN's research notes:

    Paul George was the primary defender on 14 of LeBron James' 25 plays Friday, and James had success on those plays. He was 7-for-10 when guarded by George, with five of those seven field goals coming inside 10 feet.
    The Heat scored seven transition points Friday, their fourth fewest in a game this season. In Miami's first game against the Pacers on January 8, it scored a season-low one transition point.
    David West scored 18 of his game-high 30 points in the paint Friday, his most paint points in a game in the last two seasons. West was 6-for-6 inside 5 feet against the Heat, his most made field goals without a miss from that distance since March 12, 2010, when he was 7-for-7. Statistical support for this story from NBA.com
    The Pacers' 81.0 field goal percentage inside 5 feet Friday was the highest the Heat have allowed in a game this season, after allowing teams to shoot 57.1 percent from that distance entering Friday's game. Overall the Heat defense struggled, allowing the Pacers to shoot 55.7 percent from the field, the second highest percentage they've allowed this season.
    We shot 81% (!!!) inside 5 feet. I am actually in shock
