    we can be upset because of what happened the last time versus the heat
    why shouldnt we have won this time? home court + rudy gay!
    Last time Miami didn't turn it on until overtime. This time it was the 4th quarter. Either way, they're the fucking Heat, and they're going to win A LOT when they want to. There are still a lot of positives to take from this game.

    I dunno, I wish they'd played better down the stretch (Lowry I'm looking at you -- and Anderson GTFO the floor). But as people have said this is THE HEAT. And Rudy has had 1 practice. Lets curb our expectations a bit.

    REally? So he's a good coach for 3 quarters, but then it's his fault, not his team's, that they stop executing?
    Let me correct myself, he has shown that his coaching and this team can keep with good teams, it is just repetitive errors (not only Casey) and coaching mistakes that I have a problem with.

    But, I need to remind myself, he is doing the best he can with this depleted roster.

    Despite Gay so far being really good, I can understand why Grizzlies let him go for Calderon and Ed and pick. At the end of the day Grizzlies might have even better ball movement, chemistry and maybe even to be better.

    Despite the high points, gays fg% was absolutely horrible. Good for him, bad for the team.
    He had a good percentage until Casey kept him out there to long. He missed for shots in a row right before he got a rest. You could tell he had no legs. He had played 37 minutes at that point.

    11-23 is 48 %, just so you know. A couple of shots were in the last few minutes when the game was out of reach, including a desperate 3 pointer.

    That's nowhere near "absolutely horrible."

    They didn't really give Gay room to operate at that moment. If Lucas/Anderson hit some shots, Gay will get more room as well.

    People are looking for one thing or one person to point out what's wrong. That's simply not the case with our team, we're not good enough for that. For instance, the defense on Bosh was atrocious at times.

    I am just dying for BC to make another move or two. This roster needs it.

    I'm pretty sure Gay was not the reason for bad ball movement tonight. You must have been watching a different game. You have to be looking pretty hard to find something wrong with how Rudy played tonight.

    I'm pretty excited to see Rudy, DeMar and Andrea play together. They could really compliment each other. We were one scorer, and big man away from winning tonight. Bargs usually plays Bosh pretty well.

    Of well, they got Price right? That's basically the same - a great team player. I mean, I can see why Grizzlies let Gay go. Not saying it's bad for such team as Raptors, but that's not much if you expect to build serious team...

    ITT: Prince is the same as Calderon.

    Memphis traded Gay because they wanted to save money. That's all. They've been trying to rationalize it with "Basketball Reasons" (lol), but in the end it was a financial decision.

    Expected loss, good effort by the Raps. Gotta work on that offense.

    Looks like you need to update your signature, though.

    You obviously have no idea what your talking about. And who the hell is Price?
