I watched the replay multiple times, and I don't think Acy's move was dirty or dangerous. It just looked to me like Kyle jumped up as high as he could, with no regard for himself, and his upper body got knocked backward by Harris while his lower body was still going forward and upwards.

The real shame here is that there never should have been an OT at all. Up by 8 with less than 2:30 left, and they completely forgot how to defend the 3. Not a good sign considering three of top 3-point shooting teams will be in town soon (Cavs, GS and Detroit).

Haven't been watching a lot of games lately but why did they have Ibaka guarding Dinwiddie down the stretch...the only reason we went to OT is because Dinwiddie was feeling it?

Why didn't they put Pascal or OG on him - aren't they our defensive specialists on him?instead? Is OG in doghouse with Powell.
Why did we have CJ out there on the last shot of the game when it was tied and there was not way, CJ was likely to get the ball for that final shot,...I would've put JV out there and I would've preferred a shot at 2 or 3 seconds and hope for a rebound /putback if it didn't go in.

Hope Lowry's has a quick recovery but I have my doubts he hit the floor hard on his back.
We're all bozos on the bus until we find a way to express ourselves...

Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!

I don't think you will see Lowry tonight. This is a scary game. They are due to lose one at home.

edit: Lowry definitely out per ESPN, so it's on Delon & Fred tonight. Should be fun. Especially against Dragic, who is on my dirty players list.

Man, no one on either team can hit a jumpshot in the first half.

Yup, this is ugly basketball, the NBA should extend the season a bit more and get rid of back to backs. Or shorten the regular season to do it, 82 is way too many games, get rid of of conferences, have each team play each of the other 29 teams twice, best 20 teams overall make the playoffs.

What in the world was Siakim doing on that last play with 3 seconds left. Just had to play man up, hands straight up. Instead, he gambled insides and was late getting back and got beat. Cost the game there.

Pascal blew it. It's a miracle the game was this close the way they were playing on fumes. And what's up with Bruno high-fiving James Johnson after he and Serge got ejected? Pick a side Bruno...

James Johnson was Bruno's mentor and sensei.

The Heat rank 24/30 for rebounds in the NBA, and yet they completely abused the Raptors on the glass all night. Our starting centre, JV, had 3 rebounds all game. Every single Miami player had at least 3. How embarrassing.

And Powell? Geez! The guy signed a 4-year, $42M extension three months ago, and is playing worse than Demarre Carroll. He had 2 big chances to put away that game and blew them both. Ugh.

Hopefully this loss will make them to play extra hard against Cleveland on Thursday.

Regardless of Pascals defense (yes we can agree it wasn’t ideal), nobody else faired any better you can tell during the inbound.. EVERYONE was scrambling. Especially OG... guy was running all over the place and didn’t even cover a man.
Wayne Ellington could of even easily passed it to Olynk who was wide open infront of the basket if he wanted to.
