Bam looks different when he's not waiting for 1 dude to get a dribble hand off

If he can be confident in his mid range shot, Bam will take his game to a complete new level.

Good to see him around stars like this

Anyone remember when Nando De Colo was a running joke in here?

I can't believe I'm saying this but Khris Middleton needs to get minutes in the clutch. Results speak for themselves, he was the most clutch player in this playoffs. I'd have him over Tatum.

It was a tight game late in the 4th until those missed free throws and they never recovered. But certainly KD and Dame’s performances wont cut it either.

embarrassing really and a sign that these players dont have it. by it I mean a sense or urgency they take plays for granted shoulda never been that close
1. Herro 2. Bol Bol 3. Seko 4. Bruno
unless we trade up for Barrett or trade down for PJ Washington

Return to Miami Heat
