That was one of the most satisfying victories in a while. Very nice job, fellows! OP, you did good. Take a bow.

Caleb got the ball out of Trae's hands again. It wasn't always pretty but he made an impact in crunch time on defense.

The Heat have some real lineup changes to look at.

I get that Herro and Robinson have had something working lately, but man if Strus is in the zone you cant pull the dude.

With Bam coming back real soon, some how the Heat gotta layer those rotations to not break up the Yurt and Lowery minutes.

So..... Are we really gonna bury a walking double-double, rebounding blackhole when Bam comes back? The man is becoming almost a nightly triple-double threat. He doesn't have to start but we also cannot let Big Yurt collect dust on the bench. Pandora's box is open and the cat is fully out of the bag.

Yurt has made Heat basketball fun to watch again. No question Bam will be starting once he comes back but goodness does Yurt seamlessly fit into the starting rotation like a glove. It will create a dilemma for sure going forward especially if that starting unit stops clicking offensively once Bam returns. Hopefully it will be a good problem to have in the long run

Thing is there isn't a big in the starting line up that you can sit. PJ has been killing it all season, and there is no way Bam doesn't start. But he def should be the first big off the bench. Good things happen when he's on the court, even when his defense isn't all that great.

Yurt to start against teams like Philly and Cleveland. I just hope spo is flexible. There are so many options with the cast. Duncan is a bench player that has the ability to play big minutes when he finds his shot. When he doesn’t he provides dumb fouls and not much else

Our SL in the first quarter got us up to a 17pt lead and left it at 14pts.

Spo decided to dump the entire bench all at once, which is pretty uncharacteristic of him.

He didn't call a timeout or make a substitution until the Hawks cut it down to 1.

We're very lucky that our players carried us tonight and made some big plays.

The game was going to be a dog fight the moment we realized that refs wouldn't let anything go.

not that we weren't fouling but my goodness. then the team failed to adjust and kept being aggressive on D and giving away free throws. give some credit for Hawks for playing desperate, as they were.

we got some players back and I knew that we gonna go through bumps and bruises. we got the W and that's the most important.


Funny enough, our last 3 games prior to tonight, our opponents have shot 2x more FTAs than us, but we've been so good that it didn't really matter and wasn't noticeable.

The FTAs were were far more fairer tonight, although the advantage the Hawks enjoyed for the majority of the game would've sucked if we lost by a few points.
