Ehhh, with injuries yes. Need to see evidence the rest leads to a playoff advantage. Can’t find proof on google.


Lol have you ever played a competitive sport before?


Well now you’re just looking for anecdotes. If your original point included time for injury recovery, I would have agreed with you. It didn’t, but now you’re trying to frame it like it is. I got no issue with your revised point breh. Move along.

Super proud of this Heat team.

I'll be honest, I didn't expect us to play this good, this consistently. I thought we would be in for a rude awakening as we rely heavily on our young guys who have little to no playoff experience. However, they all proved me wrong. Duncan is one of the best shooters in the league. Bam upped his impact and outplayed Myles Turnover 3 out of the 4 games in the series. Tyler Herro proved once again that he is a cold-blooded killer with ICE in his veins. I think the neutral setting (no home court advantage) really helped our team, mainly our young guys as we didn't have to deal with hostile environments.

On to the next series. I cannot wait. If we stay healthy and can hit our open three's consistently, we just may pull off the upset. If anyone can do it, it's us.


Last observation: Myles Turner is literally Kelly Olynyk with shot blocking. Change my mind 8-)

I didn't have a specified scope of my original point. I stated it before Jimmy went out. Rest is good for performance (esp when all the games are one day rest rather than 2).

Internet discourse is so weird sometimes.

Less of a handle. But that sounds like a hell of a player to pair next to Bam

Tyler Herro really has come on here in bubble play. Some of the finishing inside, shot creation ability and passing has been pretty remarkable.

You have to think he'll be starting in the backcourt next year when Gogi returns to 6MOY mode.

We had some posters soiling their shorts over the meaningless pre playoff games. I was stoked we got the 20th pick. Indy, Lord bless'em, wasn't beating us, lol.

Stan V G said Herro was fearless, but that imo is a system play teaching high percentage/situational shots where even if you miss it still a good play.

Props to the coaching staff developing these youngsters.


I see Herro "downloading" a lot of Dragic's crafty paint penetration skills as they spend time playing and training together



Herro's layups sure look Dragon like and go in at a remarkable rate. Its crazy how Dragon and Herro can pull that off, and then we think about allllllll those Winslow lay-ups that just couldn't land.

This team is easy to love.....

Heat fans are going to like Heat teams....but forget the name on the front of the jersey....this collection of guys...man...they are worthy of praise.

Crowder and Iggy have sure made rooting for them easy...and then young guys like Herro you want them to do well, but man I am proud of that guy coming into his own like that. Herro is doing things that are magic, and its not luck or a fluke...the kid has legit skills, and an un teachable mentality.

Great sweep. Great call by Spo to insert Dragic in the starting lineup. Definitely the MVP of this first round for us. And Herro was great in his 1st playoff series.


Looks like the Heat will have at least a week off, which is exactly what we need. Hopefully its enough time for Jimmy to get that shoulder right.

Could use Orlando extending this series for us tbh - more Jimmy healing time is only gonna be a good thing.
