The Miami Heat expect to have former All-Star guard Goran Dragic back soon after the All-Star break following a two-month injury layoff for the 32-year-old.

Recently, 22-year-old Heat […] The post Justise Winslow wants to remain a starter regardless moving forward appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Bulls vs. Heat Highlights and takeaways: the Road Doggs rise again

Unlikely contributors in this one After a close loss to the Brooklyn Nets only one night earlier, it didn’t seem likely a win would come against the Heat on the second night of a back-to-back.

Heat 106, Knicks 97: Scenes from rotten injury luck and overbearing Dwyane Wade love

Wade still has one more game left in The Garden, people. It was probably our fault for enjoying a Knicks game, even for a few minutes. The home team made some tremendous strides in the first half Sunday against the Miami Heat, particularly on defense. The boys in orange in blue switched with passion and purpose, played the passing lanes with panache, and blocked shots en route to a 58-52 halftime lead. (You might not have noticed the game going on at all if you were listening to the MSG broadcast, as Breen and Clyde spent pretty much the entire half talking about retiring Heater Dwyane...

Game Preview: Knicks vs. Heat- 01/27/19

We could all use a beach day. Hello Knick faithful. It’s been a while since... wait no. I tried to wash Friday’s loss off my stinking body but the rats have drowned me in their pizza crusts. It’s been nine games since the last time the Knicks got a win. They now hold court with a very soggy 10-37 record. That makes them squarely the second worst team in the NBA. The Heat (23-24) are hovering around .500 and doing what they can to figure out where they’re headed. This season has largely been mired by injuries and squired by Dwayne Wade’s jersey convention. Just this one and back...
