Recap: Miami Heat crushed by Utah Jazz at home, 102-87

Starting their 11th different lineup in this injury-plagued season, the Miami Heat couldn't capitalize on Dwyane Wade's season-high 42 points and have now lost eight out of 12 home games. Stop me if this sounds familiar... The Heat, injury-depleted and shuffling their player rotations yet again, allows an opponent to shoot a high field-goal percentage, yields a double-digit lead and then spends the rest of the game trying to catch up only to fall short as time winds down. Copy-and-paste from previous recaps. This has been the unfortunate theme for much of the season and it was on display...

Cavaliers a disaster on defense, get blown out at home by Hawks

CLEVELAND — There’s no sense trying to defend the Cavaliers, because they didn’t attempt to defend anyone all night. In what was an absolutely abysmal effort — if it can even be called that — Cleveland fell 127-98 to the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday night at Quicken Loans Arena. “I really don’t have too, too Read More...The post Cavaliers a disaster on defense, get blown out at home by Hawks appeared first on Chronicle-Telegram.Click here to read this story on The Chronicle-Telegram.Content copyright The Chronicle-Telegram.

Rondo trade could prolong rebuild

Rondo trade could prolong rebuild

BOSTON -- When Rajon Rondo met with reporters following Wednesday's win over the Orlando Magic, he seemed nonplussed by his latest churn through the rumor mill. Who could blame him? He's been down this path each of the last eight seasons and has yet to change ZIP codes. "[Trade talk has been] a way of life since I've been here," shrugged Rondo. "It's just part of it." But word that the Celtics were engaged in substantial discussions with the Dallas Mavericks, all while sources indicated that Boston was also talking to teams including the Sacramento Kings, New York Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers...

Wade breaking out as Heat break down

MIAMI -- Apparently, Dwyane Wade can shake off a stomach virus with a few vintage performances but there's little he can do to remedy the headache that's become of this Miami Heat season. Wade scored a total of 70 points over two games played in a span of 48 hours, and all he had to show for it Wednesday night was an injury-riddled, confidence-rattled team that squandered one of his best games in four years in yet another demoralizing loss at home.
