Also, I'm not too worried. Jimmy, Bam, and Tyler all had bad games and we almost took the win on the road. We can take the next game.

Crowder played way above his head in Bucks series last year (probably shot like 60% from 3s). that wasn't going to happen again so yeah we need to let that go. it's not like we lost him for an injury the team didn't go after him. can't worry about that forever

Yup. Yiennis still can't play like the two time MVP against us, and the rest are good but not exactly killing us. Jimmy and bam need to play like two all stars like they are and we should be fine

Not feeling too great when a guy named Morbid is the optimist among us.

well they are obviously a first or second-round exit because they don't have the element of surprise anymore , are not in the bubble and no upgrades... but they can give a couple of teams a run for their money

so LETS GO HEAT

Still a series and we still have the answers against Giannis.
Jrue really made the difference this game and Middleton would still be Middleton next game.

Giving 2nd chances pts against Brook Lopez hurts us and should be fixable. We need Bjelica to get some burn in this series.

Jae was a glue guy and a very important one. The regular season exposed that. Replacing him with 35 year old Ariza late and 37 year old Iguodala was poor roster management.

Yes. That's exactly what we need. More pudgy Naranja.

For people talking about the three ball, and the stat that we made so many threes and still lost, that was on Bam.

They were letting us have the three, and basically betting on us not being able to make enough to beat them as long as they kept us out of the paint. We never made them adjust because we never started getting shots inside, which is where Bam should have come in if he was going at Brook Lopez the way he should have been.

Not really crying about Crowder more so of how bad the front office played it. They signed Mo phucking Hopeless.

There was a report that Morris (older one) was on the table and Mo was the fallback :banghead:

Our fascination with Giannis was really the cause. We can definitely give Jae his bag.

The answer to every loss cant be “but Jae Crowder”. Im tired of hearing that. If Crowder makes that much of a difference Phoenix should have no problem disposing of the Lakers. This game is on the teams two “stars” not showing up.
This game had nothing to do with Jae Crowder. The Bucks did not play well offensively. If Bam was wiling to be aggressive the Heat win this game handily.

We did a poor job of replacing him. That has been evident all year.

Its to the point where if Jimmy for some reason said "trade Bam" cause he was sick of him playing so soft and letting the other team off the hook, I might support it. I am honestly becoming disgusted with his passiveness. He doesn't even look at the rim on like 90% of plays on offense.

Not to rehash this again. We know. They made a play for Giannis, Giannis resigned. The FO rebounded in getting Ariza as a stop gap for this season. Ariza has played well in this game. And the 4 position ain't the reason we lost this game its because of the 2 stars.

This game has shown we have enough to beat the Bucks if Butler & Bam show up. If those two played their a$$ses off and Ariza/Iggy were trash then you can bring Crowder. Role players can't save you if your two best players don't perform

Return to Miami Heat
