On Saturday night and he did what they should do a team like that. They didn't take the game particularly seriously not just know LeBron and carrier ring but of course still know Kevin Love still on the OJR Smith with the exception of the snow shenanigans. Time at the date they cared so little about the game the cavs at K Felder who had been their starting your bed their backup point guard. I he played that night in the so cavs didn't think their game particularly seriously they are gonna take tonight more seriously now much more seriously. You know LeBron as a way air. Of what the record is. With the heat in Miami that and the money with the cats in Miami since he's gone back to Cleveland. The also Cleveland this handle Miami pretty easily a player it's just been a home and home situation. So the cavs are gonna come out strong tonight no question about it. Tyree and LeBron are gonna play. They'll play their normal loading minutes LeBron to me it's actually up this year because he giving him the rest nights off instead of giving him the rest during the games. And this is a barometer game for the heat know they win tonight probably not. And they hang close going to be. If the threes fallen trees fall lately. They have a chance to do that and that's the thing Bertie by daddy former real about a Coral Springs and a selection and the lowest prices in South Florida.

It's a lying in the end visit ADT dot com. Thank you sir. All right so we talk about statement game assault arrests. You know the heat. How why have beaten good teams during the stretch. But didn't and they what's an interest in music they've actually beaten more than good teams lately in the game then they've been up on the dancing solo that team the Cleveland put on the floor. Would be fighting for playoff spot at best. The team that they put on the floor the other night could you talk about the wins over she still end. The win over Golden State. Our early in the Sri or early in the thirteen inch streak. The the wins over Indiana and Atlanta couple wins Orlando so Anita had good wins lately. This one going up to Cleveland and beating LeBron when LeBron clearly. Wanna send the message tonight this one rank up there. This fluid and I know I've heard a lot of people saying now they probably won't win. The G got to go in here with the attitude of we need this because all the all rolled into her soft that are remaining and they've got a steal a few road games. Why not this week. Well I know I know you're at the knicks later and and there's you know a couple of those types of above games are you planning hut you got confidence you've got momentum you won eighteen you're last when it's due. A medic. You're right there to that age but come and go after this one Harden and don't settle don't don't listen to us who say well they probably won't win and a long as they are gold go up there and and win with LeBron with our reached. These links these these and not just a momentary tonight that this is beating debut of Andrew Bogut. In Cleveland uniform so O'Donnell back to their regular rotation with the exception again of love. And Smith who are still out. So Shumpert starts and then I don't know who they'll start I'll try and I guess. Richardson's house starts at the five. I guess they start either Channing Frye part most likely chaining Fries and getting the minutes that Kevin Love being out. And chanting was that he was a one got to play well for clean from the other night that though they'll get back and Darren Williams off the bench pulled it off the bench Korver off the bench. I mean he even looked at the team the Cleveland on the floor and I know that we're not very competitive against the heat on Saturday they got off to let the date the tie at 35 of the first quarter and then after that the heat blew them out. But you look at their team in any start to see the pieces that Cleveland has assembled here without giving anything up. Yeah I missed most of the game goes I was coming back from from India become and so by the disarm us all the game there was there was a fourth quarter and it was a blow out but. Still Cleveland has a lot of talent dom they they really do they've they've done a nice job of filling out that Russert. Supplement in Gaza we're with you know Korver and and and Bolden and Deron Williams Som that they are strong team back I think that they are good enough. Who to beat a Golden State once again I really do but. You know they they've got to work out there there are things they're not Golden State ready yet they've got a iron up the rotation but it. This is gonna be very very tough where they see clearly but hum. Date they need this victory they need all I got to go all the road games you've you've gotta you gotta go out there and and you know tried don't ask don't have that attitude like Garcia though you know this is Cleveland mirrored you know whatever they are they're the defending champs. You know all we need to. Lewis is come close. You need some of these game these rogue Angel you're good if you're gonna get that eight spot while hum. At Indiana after this right right and didn't they rendered London and well listen this. This week are your ex Cleveland home wins against Charlotte. Hold on a Saturday against Toronto without Kyle Laura Lowry. Sunday you're at Indiana. And then after that you look at drew your your road get injured you're at Boston on March 26 year at Detroit on March 28. And Andrea and you test the knicks on the second night above deck to deck marched when he ninths. Who knows what happens there from deer and you're you're at Charlotte at Toronto. And Washington second night to a bank to bank. I'm just you're gonna need some of these road danger will resonate here. You better goal horn after this one tonight. Well he beat me just look at Detroit now to you know because there. You know that's it seemed that the chasing affiliates by and the pistons they need at the bulls and it tonight. Then the pacers. They and then have two games and to the extremes of a better against the Canucks and and the jazz raptors. To their schedules on the mix and they get softer games and songs in the that's. But but as citizens chaser right now for the exceed. And this is that some weird numbers right now on their two best players supposedly Ricky Jackson and Andre Drummond. And yet the numbers even better without either I on the floor. So stands tinkering with a rotation out there. They whereas the heat right now look like eat you sort of know what you gonna get. You know in terms of rotation from night tonight because the team is healthier than I thought the most promising things to come out of the game against Cleveland. Other than obviously taking care of business against the team that was not at full strength was Josh Richardson. He looked he looked like himself for the first time. And he's come back. He had some list. Eat in terms of getting in terms of getting above the rim in terms of his defense. He looked much be much different than he's looked so far and so now you know let's all show really has. Oh well he's loaded with guards and you can use email and Wayne Ellington has been cheating the lights out Luke babbitt's and shooting lights out so you eat he's got. Really eleven players and he's playing right now and that he can roll out their cell. They that is you know Miami's advantage a lot of these games is just is capped and I'm mom wondering. You know what as they get since then ended the season they would but they're working against this idea that they are a lot of players are experienced and gone through this before. But the thing that is in their favor is that they should be fresher here later in the season because of that depth. And that they see if there is a pretty smelly bowl team write a story is that they're harder they're into prince of teen driving seat by. I am starting to rethink their pain worse they're not a good three point shooting team doesn't second half of the season. They have been a good three point shooting team and then this bacon played pretty much any size I guess except for big basketball but whose slim big basketball nowadays. They they can pretty much half court. It deepens a live game transition game wide open game. They do a good job three point shooting. They do a good job at anything that's thrown at them and I think that's one thing that that makes him such a dangerous team down the stretch here. I don't know about I'm style of play their their release stifles this team in federal more talented such as Cleveland. Definitely blood pace dial they can play pretty much and stuff. Oh did you imagine driving kid that's been the big thing that they've been able to do the minimum to get a lot of open looks. Of late and they're getting there they are best shooters are taking the most threes which. You know sometimes that that doesn't happen you know because he you know you be easier when your offense is working that's what should happen. It's not just the shot that you get but who's taking those shots. And you don't want you know it there there're some teams get. Mean did they get caught up because their best players may not be the best three point shooters but they're taking on the majority bush I think he had. June 3 point specialist. In their rotation that know what they did their primary thing we do is hit threes and that's Ellington and attitude and both of them are getting a lot of good looks ugly then so the ball's moving to the right guy at the right time in the right spot. And you know that came into the game they had in Charlotte and it was disappointing defensively. And they obviously locked down much better against cancer again just to caution everybody. I mean that Cleveland was not taking that particularly seriously you know I think. You know tyra Lou knows he's got some margin for error here elderly couple games up on Boston but. They have the tiebreaker against the Celtics and near I think there's a feeling that we can rest. The brought in fact the running arrests and next time they come down to these same deal they its second item back to back after the play Atlanta. So LeBron may not playing Miami. Until the playoffs. This year. There'll be interest and there will be introducing people what do you think tank office. I thought it was it was clearly predictable. Considering you have that natural excuse so above second night of back today. Retrace it all so it doesn't look like she's escaping the heat. It. Looks like he's taking a night off second night of back to back against a inferior opponent in an inferior opponent. Oh. It doesn't cover regardless the second night of back to Beck but clearly needs some of them are not wanting to deal with playing here. I have something to do with the well I thought since it clearly. I suspect strongly. Well nick is not you don't have to say that you. I mean and I'm not saying they would loss if he played. And you know obviously curry playing two and made a big difference by. He he got cover a couple of ways one was that he wasn't the only got to take it off this time. That's good tight re re taken it off to excellent bright and some formal organizational decision. Yeah it's it's not just LeBron deciding to take tonight off the coast. For whatever reason it's LeBron and kind of reassess or deny that debate will licensed ports and South Beach too. I wouldn't doubt that yeah so why why wouldn't you be. Really well I mean solos and now home I saw the Cleveland Atlanta game and I'm not Friday night and end. I Atlantic tame Beckett didn't get up here a mugger letting it was just crazy Watson. But that was one of the gang rumble today Cleveland and the way they were playing. Early in just thinking you know they've they've done a nice job with this club looks LeBron museum on the very nice job Philadelphia's roster. I don't see anybody in the 82 such in my I don't think there's I don't think there are Boston or Washington to go seven games with a six yeah six. But you know I don't know that six is really touch human lesson like blow a 31 lead. They just send and have a lot of options now they can play beyond the couch and play at number different ways they can play. You talk about different styles seen Owen in the heat I was is pretty consistent here you kind of know what he's trying to do. Clean Lincoln played totally differently with different lineups and they just did they can go to LeBron. With a all bases on the floor a little bigger lineup they have won once they get London JR Smith back Tyler whose biggest problems industry and who not to play. Yeah and then there. Yet they can go on the assistance of a bunch of different ways they don't offend. Yeah real thing but to sit well they don't have been as well as they used to. Now that was. I mean there there in the twenties in terms defense efficiency but they there. That performance against Atlanta there was a lull lane on launch. They were there. I was I was shocked that there and I thought that when I'm watching that game and a little scum bag company Gannett is the typical NBA comeback where their old bill closed within five and end up losing by like the win over fifteen and. Are they actually know what they're doing anything anyway I think that closely got a 130 I will talk more about this. Will we come back and some lunatic. Yeah. Okay. Okay. Welcome back up and I think that's the end but I. And Chris Kirk. The Leo yeah. It's a man to tell my story and some from behind the scenes. Friday night. Prime 47 then and the NFL owners ruin is is in there he the terms of the top floor of the state tells Chris run. Into like a VIP area. So me and some other reporters grew up there. There's owners Oren says some of beer pong game and he's clearly with space station and pay the light when there were 400 dollars a bottle. And slow yes let's say that that was in up there I got back home got back to the hope so listen so they have. Four dollars and insult porn dollars a bottle so yeah then you know you see the normal and bill. Yes your personal experience there was billed as dig here. In theory was there he is pretty wealthy. Pretty wealthy. Oh yeah I don't look I'm was good manhunt I had a really good time there had a really good time. A little or you know woke up but it was that a good tone wealth. No I mean I know I you know. What it Melissa what happened to beer and it was this this expect that you bought as soon as you got. Oh. That was hit a six federal Adam Beasley. That was whether I could get their Thursday night Thursday night she got into like. 10:30 AM Thursday night and we're sale now at the airport because downtown we. They they they move the combo and a week later sold up billions are coming in and and and I was women's Big Ten tournament a lot of the hotel rates were jacked up we stayed out at the airport there was really no where to go so we went to the do convenience store right next to hold so got a six pack of Budweiser. Ice it down in the end this as any good veteran traveler knows. Make a cooler on the street and yeah I have a couple Beers that was actually I drink let there was one left when I when I checked album on Saturday. I am one before it for a left. We're coming through thirty float a little bit you normally a left and Abdullah who for rooms there is no there was a literature housekeeping rather policy and you open and honest I've kind of cleansed or left them much higher quality durable. We know I don't know what this its size it's Budweiser called American now. I did did you bookstore while there was a big complaint doesn't matter checked I'm glad you brought this up I'll Budweiser glad that I love Budweiser very loyal to Budweiser. They have these cheap as twelve pay. Box is now where when you when you cereal when you pick them up it did like the handle a source scoreboards are split. So I think there's user and cheaper quality cardboard on the twelve packs a wallop like to appeal to rim go back to the old cardboard and it didn't split. You should happen on Twitter dot actually does not this this is this is real this is real good. I don't care act carried a twelve pad back to my place from the convenience store would like mortal like a hundred yards Derrick 200 yards. And then I've got a split an already in gum M does not have to carry like a little stool girl Holdren all of. And show us to demonstrate you the yes I don't like that so be above one needs to get their work now can get your act together just don't get my money but it worked out to have this addicting and human. But it's usually go alcohol writings. Are not want more so I really need to take care at all but neither would be nice to have. The sex dosing in Ethan reached record just report about the heat having interest in Jarrett sellinger have you heard this I think they've both. Very Jackson and Ira wonderment have now reported on this. That they're taking a look at sellinger. We we discuss this possibility when he was cut loose. Bonnet. Here's the thing about so owns or is that he's been out of shape for a long time. So. The heat will have a roster spot once they clear crisscross the salary and they can do that now often want. Bosh is gonna play twice I mean sure anybody else this season he's not playoff eligible solution out of the woods on that. Might. How would would Donna Jared soldier was the guy when he came at a college questions we all lot of injury related questions. And sort of conditioning questions and those questions and not a way. It's I what are what does it home. And he can he be a long term so what's your solution only and so long term could he be a two year solution for the heat. Mean you know you take a flyer I am now. A sign into tears deal. I mean I guess she could and you got to see if you can commit to an entire arm makes a point. In his story didn't know they've been able to re skull. Some players like Austin should Shaq. Udonis Haslem lost all the weight before he got to the pros. Yeah and I'm in Princeton. New York at their college. He was a load right yeah she can load at Florida he was a big blob new load it did it lead though Miami ha. Yeah he's holding now he shall keep it. It's it's incredible commitment when you saw you DOD and C putts radio Florida yeah militant. I don't know Pete I don't know he reached 300 but he he was very. And yet to see what he's turned into slender coming slam and cut our has been this entire NBA career. Any viral mentions it I Eddy Curry was earlier in terms of trying to. Getting to reshape his body but yeah I mean he beat I don't know how much soldier can help them right now. He's not really what. Upside on Solyndra is really when Arlen 'cause if you can't. If you can't get them for two years like Ed if you get him for the end of this year if you have a home for next year. This is a guy who he's really impeding your progress that position. Ed Ed has not as far as being able to develop younger guys. Well he's not a three point threat that's the best seats mean the biggest thing is stationed. With the scene and financial wanting babbitt's giving the right now. And so you know basically he's just an extra body. You know with towels at this one he's a very good he's look he's been a career. He's got a very good rebound over the course in his career opinion Ed that's the one thing he does really well. Assassin played off production right. I had a I seem to remember Duma. Hello join us in the playoffs. From the youth Cleveland. Yeah he he's claim mostly in the two series they loss to Cleveland. And the first series he played pretty well against some second series he wasn't as much as a contributor. In his first 36 numbers. He's. His her 36 minute numbers he's averaged eleven point one rebounds over the course of his career. You sign a contract with Toronto this off season which is gonna make good contract scene where he was into this year. And he just he only played eleven games and then he kind of bombed out and then they went out and got Ibaka. And you know how to seat upgrade the position but yet he he's not only are gonna step in your starting lineup because he can't space the floor. And so there is put off eligible correct there's a study is way by Phoenix in the deal edit the PJ Tucker deal right. Yeah this is yes so he's he's he was waiting for somebody to head. Estimates are excellent. Know he's little dual view CA he was cut before march 4 march Phoenix and all mountain. On the. Let's talk and as somebody sexy and does go to its it's my question about Sandra you're renting them and tastes quite cider rebuilds don't. I guess. I I guess. Is that good is that Mike do you wanna do you at a rhythm permit. Well it's it's there's no risk to it that's the bankers see it it there out of the woods with bosh than Nelson Lincoln they can release bosh now. And begin that process and it's not gonna end up hurting them in terms of going into free agency this summer. RI and they didn't make a trade so they didn't make any additions there I mean they're deeper in the backcourt they Armstrong court I think what you looking at a news. You know when Willie Green got hurt you know there was all of a sudden panic what are we gonna do. And the other end up having Jesus Karl white who's trying the three Indy league they have to use him. At the center spot. Yeah it makes sense now now that I see that but I was I wasn't thinking optimized injury insurance also know him as somebody who could possibly. Play a role for you and that's what I'm thinking you're. And impeding the progress of Willie read neural or somebody else but. If you just comeuppance as insurance another big man. All right I could I could see that. Yeah I mean you pay a premium for that reason I mean in Ohio State ill for a little while he McLane earlier really really high paying. And you know he hasn't he yes he can nature shooting immediate range doesn't go out the three point line that that's the biggest thing there but. But he's. Yeah he's. 300 pounds. Doesn't work in the in the NBA. To too many times unless you're election actors some. And and so injured and had reached that point that at one point and that coupled with his injury history. You know that that is that is concerning black if you're just getting him as a as an insurance policy and and trying to kick the tires and then. See if he's if he didn't fit in next year or beyond OK I guess I've seen that but it did I thought I thought that you were gonna get Yemen and like create some kind of role for him. Which which I would think this is bad somebody sexy and Larry Sanders is a better insurance policy correspondent Willie Reid. Is Larry Sanders was upset that the cavs sign though. Voter bogey at the senate then yeah I mean here this is a story in the Boston Herald that was written weekend. Such Salinger. Who coached his son and high school. Said didn't you know he he did they they had an intervention. In 2015. Senator John lucas'. Hand. To try to lose some weight and just in Merck. He said I mean this is. No. There can you imagine held. Like. I guess they've got a great relationship Menendez let that's gotta be time. And all we're gonna your your your dad. Coming to use the sun and then saying look we gotta Cindy's of the bat farmer your careers and. Well I am in main trucking in the press like this. You send this is from a store in Boston Herald such Solingen doesn't want you here at his son put on too much weight on shaping and the sound and recover from foot surgery. Exacerbating his life on conditioning problem. It's and is probably journalists overcomes this comment he's his weaknesses before you can join another team even the Celtics. Told that the self assemble the sun out sent soldiers and not sure that would change anything for and he estimated his line now what's important. But if you stand in the way of progress and get out of the way all I know for sure is at the signs aren't good even if Phoenix captain eliminated any better for me slowest pace themselves. As a dad man it hurts the water seeks some level it's up to him. Does brutally tend to put that I guess that's their relationship there's been bothered. Goes public like patent and he was he coached him. I guess that's their relationship but it's. And that that's about incensed as candid as you can get his father knowing what's at stake for his slow and that that seems read this and and and you know win and if they eat they talk to hear they're gonna bring this up what's your commitment your dad's is that the you know things are good for you east it. Your agenda mature almost torpedoing your son ever dreamed on. Itself like there's nothing you haven't told lists on. Which in the end at. In that case I have no problem with it it's if if if the body feels comfortable. Put it out there like that and he has told the sun. Since he sent him to John moves displacement had this conversation it's. It's it's refreshing but still alarming. Well here is all the more pieces of metal shacks Salinger this is in Boston Herald. He says people are looking for players and ability you can help legitimate commitments yourself before you can help someone else you're under pressure under the gun he's Salinger he can handle being under the gun. Most people who can get Qaeda and came back and we don't have the talent but that's not charities that the talent last year was it 300 county shall manage its when he tried double doubles. So yeah I mean what which rating is a rebounder and a projects. If you sign a million all the reports are not that the heat are signing in and just that they met when them. And I'm sure Riley tried to sort of engaged. A lot of these things seen how serious is he about basketball. At this point about getting condition because we know and he condition is different. Correct and it. You have to be ready to route to play some defense and then move your speed as opposed to be in the big load in the middle. Right we'd win when you play pretty good ministry estimates stretch or so that's so that's really nothing new but is is he ready to have to make that level of deepens the commitment. I'm sure Pat Riley covered that I'm dumb dumb shared media. Did the cell like Jared sullen here is that it is a good mix when he. Tom and I think he's I think he's titan players that they. Have sort of resurrected in the past. And I I don't I don't know I think it's worth the flyer I am in the end here you're worried about your depth up front I just. Whiteside goes down is something I mean you've seen this ons are a bunch of reaching injuries last year right. And I don't and you know Willie greens give them good for 36 numbers. Bonnet. They saw you know do all the concern about when they they look like you might Blanc is chilies and it was very what do you do the rest of the season. Be eating makes some sense and I I think BC can now point to what's happened when James Johnson this year what's happened with some of the players. Where the wind makes essentially sold unity in the program like this. We witness takes a Sonoma cylinders for years since the Ohio State days such an amazing family such as word series serious weight in the family. So it sounds like acid sit this to Jerry and in this wakeup call that he's given so it's a Jarrett so. Yeah it's it's just this and this isn't. This isn't Johnny millions they'll bad saying you know big Johnny users is gonna do you know is going to be in serious trouble PT told him this way this. Missiles like lord brutal honesty with we have. There and something that he's talked to his son about an end you know the man's real deal day that Tom. You know Johnny and I didn't talk to his dead in a while but this sounds like they're communicating and refreshing just a little alarming yeah but it's. Look so this feels like Jared good to have a M a good dad whom who cares about him right and it's gonna tellem looks aren't you wanna say in the league. You better do Arabian Sea. Well surely surely tomb team. Yeah I'm serious. And and as you say I'm sure that's a good bit of the interview worst west tech trying to gauge success he knows what will Jared soldier can do on the court but how committed is this guy is an opinion here and we lit room if we have that's what we need to do. This isn't such danger if the coaching journey and Iceland playing such an influential role chargers like a missile crews more distant relation with the sun now. The lions never completely 'cause it's such as they have ways of communicating so you know he's he's made it clear to him and its owners only 25 again a lot of this. It is sort of screens. She reclamation project. If this is that this is the kind of thing that they've done before and you know you can have them. BE EL basically trying to work is swinging the shape over the last five or six weeks and it gives you a few minutes in a playoff series. You know instead of Harrington to go so small. You might be worth it. Who were the other choice is Larry Sanders is out there what other I don't actually think that. There's so much as he there's Steve Benson who's on the buy it there's not a lot out there in terms of big strain now they're gonna help you and I mean bogey it was the the the premiere. Buyout candidate and in Cleveland on Henman and he went and made a lot of sense in Miami anyway Dicey. For him there and doing business here now miss Derrick may stood there hurdle now there weren't any and then there were any minutes. For him really in terms of you know I mean ultimately result in nice enough job as the backup that he's there's even back ambitious about having. Some other options in case white salary get hurt. That makes its members sentiment in the Senate's yeah that that put in perspective because you didn't did you bring some wondering here to try to. Create an artificial role warm. I'd I didn't like they're all the news has backed up as an insurance policy another big body okay. Progress. Since Larry Sanders hasn't played in in medium and long China we Salinger has seen housing and playing very well in Toronto this year. But it. If you're not looking for. Seventeen minutes a night from Jared Sullinger I mean you you might end in worse you know dubbed a bad situation there's an injury but. Really you're you're hardly relying on him he's an insurance policy so far right I see that. It makes sense I'm older attack and seven until. You waiters. Yeah sure that it. It is our play of the night meant Miami now other than any lightning. Twelve seconds left the gold hey couple might play at a Morrison year old gelding. Welcome in on a Tuesday. It installment here with Chris her skins take you up until close to 7 o'clock tonight. Big night sleep last night big surprising night. Whose Big Brother now Perkins. I guess I guess. Pat Riley is here and and LeBron James is hey you like what do mart's exclusive yesterday right I didn't I didn't quite Grassley yesterday but no starting now starting to see mayonnaise courtesy I don't know in the playoffs took her out right awkward now right Pat Riley then that's LeBron stop. Well last night big surprise there considering we found out right before we lead in the air the James Johnson Tyler Johnson we're not gonna play. And we keep talking about this heat team you know it feels a little bit like the dolphins did during their their winning streak where they're just kind of get nets from somewhere. Every night and you know last night three point shooting again. Was terrific. Whiteside got some easy baskets as a results of the three point shooting sort of opening up the lane a little bit. And if that game and not another 34 minutes I'm not sure that he wins the way the Dallas trendy place. Via. Obviously Dion Waiters three Indy was kind of over by then but that that sealed it for for real. He got him excited and did both cross closed in beyond that look beyond that look at them like little like the undo what game with the with that reducing getting here what a Golden State whatever game it was that Deion did that right solid stroke truck that goes back at the free throw line opening I don't think the onslaught. Both at the end that I noting that went wrong Lleyton getting tricky. Yeah well that will go there are some things were gonna wrongly in the game they they allow them to get crawl back into it. And you know that's awakening Cleveland can score so quickly it's only two guys in double figures. For the cavs Irving and LeBron and the big news in Cleveland. I was reading some of the media reports out of there and there's a little bit of focus on the game and most of it was about what happened when Andrew Bogut. 58 seconds. Breaks his leg and Al Cleveland has a look at another big Amanda. Signing Larry Sanders or. There's a couple of players in the LeBron talked about how panel at the air out of the building. There. But I. I don't know that you blame that on the law you know on the loss for the cavs does she is the click has aren't very good defensively. And and that's been the case all season. And they allow you get a rhythm and in the heat and Gunner in the lately you know for three they've been terrific. At last night protests were sloppy with the ball especially early in the end it didn't look like they were really they were really focus I'm not gonna say that they did not take this seriously they just they just didn't appear to be sharp. Earlier in the NBC jumped on them Cleveland aimed at selling a eventually started wearing down receipt. I thought the better scene last night clearly won that game that he was the better the heat isn't a better team but BC blows last night night. I don't think there was I don't I I really didn't have much doubt that way that they see what's playing that they were going to. I can't say win but that they they weren't going to I didn't think they were going to give the game away put it that way is after they adapt to the way they played in the first half and even as Cleveland. Well let's come and bay Tom. I got caught as he is not gonna do anything stupid in this day and Cleveland will will have to take it from the men Cleveland couldn't do. Yeah and you know that we have dinner the conversation too about Wayne Ellington because. You know you talk about whether or not you exercise this team option six million dollars coming out this year. What he's doing though is you know he's giving me eat in an only bit that relies on the three point shot right now. He's shooting it and I and I mean he's already said his screen is his own career. Record for three pointers. And he made five of ten last night. And he's he's giving you every night now he's Guinea 3453. And access to release it it's so quick. Dom you know assistant Rosie comes off booed off the cut off their off a screen. He's there are checks at a high shot release and it states we we saw Jason Kapono with a quick release I don't know time wise Ellington is as quick as Jason Kapono was when Sosa went Kapono won three point shooting contest would those couple years but man that that ball is not in his hand very well. Yeah and so there's there's another decision that the you're gonna have to make after the season because they're gonna have about 39 million dollars to play with. But they've got to decide if they wanted to Cairns Dion Waiters that they want secured James Johnson and they want and and now it's a white either eat into that six million dollars. Wins Wayne ellington's. Contract but but he has been. I trivia it's a great confidence boosting win for the heat you know I mean this EU can devalue the the previous land the thirty point win at home. By saying LeBron and carried in plain LeBron and Harry played pretty well last night like that they didn't get anything from anybody else but those guys played pretty well and it's still wasn't enough. Yeah LeBron does seventeen boards in correct thirty points or more yeah Eddie was he was he was doing what he could he. Yet nobody else did everything for Cleveland and it would be different and thus so must not sit here and think well that's seven regular he's good could take them or maybe they could go seven games it is completely different we know that you get the focus in on different strengths and weaknesses of a teen get into their rotation and the things along those lines but you definitely see that the confidence that you get from from that victory last night. You should feel old now all that that there's nobody in the league they can beat you on eighty NA regular season scenario where do where it's one game and for the rest of the year either at your place where their place. You should feel very very confident if you're a key player. And now only in game and a half behind Detroit won last night beat Chicago. But a game and a half behind both Detroit and Chicago. For the seven and eight seed so you could get out of Cleveland bracket which I still think. Would be ideal I know a lot of heat fans wanna see the matchup against LeBron but I mean look we know what LeBron doesn't first round. Syria know we know how motivated he would be against repeat because they're the chirping would it would just be deafening as the brother can you beat LeBron and LeBron. And LeBron. He would wanna get this over important and end all that mess all right as he would be very focused you know while this will be fun there was an imminent. Gully where it was these funds that I and I but I think even though they'd be heated struggle against Boston this year Isiah Thomas had one of those ridiculous fourth quarters against them. It's it's still you know strikes me is the better matchup Boston. Eight you know doesn't mean they they rely Isiah heavily this year obviously. Don and Miami would have to do you know try to guard Isaiah with a number doesn't even Josh Richards is done it before. You know obviously drive it to get the first shot at them but you know you you just have to throw a bunch of different defenders but not a couple of things last night the kind of went under the radar a little bit of Karl Y eight. And did you know commendable job the job battling LeBron in back and it shut him down completely and he ended up as you mentioned getting his numbers. But it it I thought he did he did a good job being as physical as he could LeBron without getting into foul trouble he worked he made him work and you know when Magruder rats and turns he made him work also so. You know without James Johnson who would have gotten a primary Simon I think off the bench you know they manage Syria as spare schools she says figure it out. And so EAE you've got to give I mean he tremendous credit for for that performance lesson. One of the best victories of the season. The cause because you didn't you'd catch Cleveland by surprise the way he okay may be Golden State or horribly you know I don't think you cause you some by surprise really because they they were rolling but. In this this blows you know you won eighteen of 22 coming in and end prefer Cleveland State employee you have just seen among Saturday night you knew what does seem wasn't belt there there are no excuses that have us and I think Cleveland was wet but there that's not an excuse that they got their butts day. They did read that that's it and and the seat has a you can take a lot out of that for Cleveland I think it just rolls off your bank it is one of 82. You do you don't like to lose clearly but there. I don't think that anybody is looking at that gaming going Lowell may might be vulnerable to Boston or Washington now. You know look at it like Napa but he huge huge take away from that victory. Yeah I think you know that that the cavs. Look the cavs are likely going to be the number one seed anyway but there are issues that are you know did they know there are they don't defend the three point line very well and we saw that would Miami. I mean he we're getting. A lot of waiters looks were contested non and he just had one of those nights you know we we now seen. Over the past three games that you know sort of the the bad and the good with Dion Waiters are yet you don't expect Leslie EE heat he did any made their email it's kind of tough shots. To. Ellington shots were a little bit more wide open but. You know the other thing when he was a union have you know they had to gold. Away from the usual starting lineup in the second half too because they didn't have Batman the veteran acts that hasn't been out of the game there are so. It tax. It is important since the Korean forget the season find me another regular season win better than that since LeBron laughs. Hum. I stolen safe was that the was there. Yeah I'm trying to think if there been any of the past couple years. I mean the beating I I think the Christmas Day game beating. Being the bronze in Miami. On Christmas Day game I think what we're we're right up there. Blog thing had a huge game that in that one yeah. The sex films and not cap is still missing she started to love and JR capsule easily sweep the Celtics of the better matchup for sure. And then this sense comes along like this he team with a my opinion three all stars and in 1904 record since the break do damage in the playoffs. Depends on the matchup. I don't I don't think it. I don't think they need to win more than one game against Cleveland. I think Cleveland would be that hyper focused and it and let's face it once again it's a it's a different game as far as coaching and exploiting matchups and in all of that kind of stuff. Against judge against Boston or Washington. I could seal who. DC winning some games. Maybe even go on seven I still don't I still don't see this team come. Winning a first round series. And I yeah I look at it some ways. Right now they're they're nineteen and poor in the second half of the season that's a very hot team. They are still more games under 53034. More right than ever before so they are still AEA sub 500 team I know. You know the last win how much Lorena has yet the last what four or not there to get there in nineteen and three. No small irony is their 19990. Store for near nineteen and four in the in the past 23 brief that yeah. I think a lot of it would depend on matchups but I I guess the question is what else they still need to show us. I mean Mitt the reality is they've played. For most of this stretch they played. High quality defense they went through a little bit of a stumble there. Recently and you know it seems like Orlando you know when they're playing Orlando led they seem to. To struggle for patent gets and a painting and some they really had problems against them. Via if you look at what they've done offensively. You know at the defense he knew was denim to be drilled into them because that's what this organization does it's a Spoelstra doesn't have a lot of look sort of long armed players that you don't give them some length on defense and you know he thought even without Winslow they have some players that could you know be three Indy type players. But to me what's what's gotten me is the offense diet how Chris the offense has looked at times. And how they found the game here this drive and kick game. Which you know they're not forcing the ball until Whiteside all that often he's getting a lot of this touches on put backs. Eight keynote in that occasionally he wants to rip off a seventeen foot jumper tried but they could they let the big many down occasion right yeah but but the drive and kick game. And the fluidity of their offense has really surprised me I I didn't think that this group can do that I mean you look at the streak of sixteen straight 100 point games. And then you look at you know last night I mean in how many clean looks they're getting. From the perimeter and the other doing it without. Eight you know that the typical way that it's done in the NBA which is easier have superstars that have to be double teamed all the time Brett you know. I mean a lot of teams single out white sides still. You know lead with dryness are still on its lot of teams that are going under the screen so. It's been in pretty surprising. It is it's been it's been good seized from the standpoint no nothing seems to be able to stop this team in there and I talked about yesterday they can posting counterpunch. And end mum you know they didn't they can win which injuries. There are no second half of the season they've been almost invincible. Aaron we were not in the Slovenia the show because I totally forgot to do here's the things that was here's the thing brought to devalue forlorn Mililani Carl springs and now Chris Perkins and. Miami Heat. Heard us talking about it now won nineteen of their last 23 yanks I saw last night's 10698. Victory at Cleveland.

Rights Aerosmith slushy back before that he slowed salute you and I guess I and I think China loosened something like it every two weeks they say it's an enemy another two weeks. The bonnet I don't know how much a difference that would mean anyway necessarily come. Texas in the magic of the heat's Kryptonite yet I don't get it would Orlando they they cannot stop Orlando from getting in the paint they they just sit had a real trouble there. Without compete in the mirror and within an NN Forney and not in the middle teams in the Korean snot not so much. Not so much the last game. Here is there's an interest in Texas forest team building goes I was this that cure this this one not. This isn't sort of outside the box opinion I believe they he'd have a Big Three the difference is this at a big threes impose a three. Would be third fiddle players than normal thing Big Three seven today's NBA. Most not all big trees assists in the top superstar league player and two players in the same caliber third. On the same caliber as the heat's Big Three cities need to have three came I was players are beat plus plus players judging and how they're playing now. Senate going fishing and all the cap room he will have available why not paying waiters is nice and now wife Sandra and try to turn the contract retain Johnson and Ellington. And go get two more B plus. This and then sort of even money ball on the India. So another words during during the whole band back. You know I don't know though if if if you're remembering and waiters facts. Exercising Wayne Ellington team option of six million dollars. And bringing James Johnson back there's not going to be a lot left for anybody else scenery you really are talking about you know even if you clear the Bosch running off which is expected. You talking about 39 million dollars that you have after the cap colts. So and seeded sixth that's Ellington at least 33 million dollars left. Eat you might be able to and you know teacher retain James Johnson dry it's and one more similar player. Did you pretty much bring him back the same team then. This these guys are human so you have to ask yourself if they get secure money are they going to be as hungry. If if there's situations Dion Waiters and and James Johnson and Wayne Ellington who if there's situations are secure are they don't play the same way. Well the big question of Spoelstra this year was would he be able to motivate a team with so many guys on last year and their deal because although they would be hungry. Sometimes guys can get selfish when Nate they are playing for you know personal financial gain after the season. Number he once you know shrewd woman numbers but this group is not done that I mean that Ximian series is stalls is great achievement and in addition. Sort of figuring out. What guys. Maybe are capable of doing the previous coaches and allow them to do. And you know his idea you know making the barrier to peace in the Arab and out this about sort of getting guys out of their comfort zone. And spent forcing them to place box that they didn't think they would play. You know act have you know a guy like a Karl white guarding LeBron but also men guarding fives lately you know have. James Johnson handling the ball the top having. Dion Waiters and would more plane making responsibility than he's had. Previously I mean these are all things that you would necessarily look at this roster and say this guy can do this and this in this. I thought another person he last night that I knew and I thought Josh Richardson had some good moments and sell you know he's not there yet. Biden no they may have basically five guards now that are that are you know when Tyler Johnson's healthy that are all playable guards and Spoelstra is managed and the injuries helped in this regard a little bit because when one guy was in another I was out. I he's managed to keep these guys sort of all connected and together. Where they're getting really good performances from from multiple people on a given night any really don't seem to that they you know it seems genuine they really don't seem to care who gets the numbers that night. I think that's true. If you bring back this team intact. To pull Michael Jordan the silly news room. Right because there aren't they are because what are you going to a bowl suit suit to the limit seemed to have four all stars and no closer. Well the dummies are are you closer to a title if you bring the scene back well you are even closer than you are. Did then you are now but you don't once they elect or are you did are you getting around deeper into the playoffs are you making progress toward winning a title or you just keeping a good team together. Well. He probably the latter right let's right. But witnessing this don't want precedent in so many ways it's okay not just unprecedented and having this kind of winning streak. Asked her in a losing thirty of your first 41 games but also unprecedented in in terms of of how they're getting it to collect and I can't think of a good comparison. From the from the scene you know there was an Orlando team laid back that played really horror and I think it was soccer's first team actually in Orlando played really hard. And sort of was more than the sum of the parts I. Think they're LaRouche oh yes there are struggling or an area that I I think you look at the some of the Boston teens. Are the Boston teams under Brad Stevens I think you know began before getting Horford. Where and before Isiah kind of blew up this year where it was sort of more of a collective thing and the other question is always in the NBA how do you go from good to great I think it's fair to say that the heat is a good team right now like this he can't in 19123. Without being in good team it's not if you were passing point and this being fluke ish. I can then be great teen wins just this roster and maybe one addition. Well remember they're gonna have they do have a draft pick this year so. It's not going to be Alonso ball and it's not going to be you know mark healthful. Oh folks hey it's not it's its organizer John and Isaiah core Jason Tatum it's not going to be one of those guys are going to be able to get up that high. Or Josh Jackson I mean you're basically looking. And it sort of more in the middle middle range Claire's at Dayton you know this draft is deep so you're gonna add somebody who has a chance to be contributor. And you also have justice Winslow coming back next year and out a decision that's remain would you do it justice. You know do you train just is a conversation and Gary and I were having because. You know basically an age. ER they feel justice is role. Win a couple of different guys riding her girders doing the things defensively. You know that he would do and then James Johnson kicked emblem ball handling. And let's some unless I'm getting aid proven veteran drew just a sudden I'm not gonna trade in my I would keep them. Bring them to tamp down and then led listening shakeout because. As you saw this season. You can't have enough depth and you can't have enough talent so if I'm trading just as Winslow personally the drastic. I'm not doing it if I'm trading him pour. CAE. Wayne Ellington Ty I'm not doing it but hey if there was eight. They've proven mid level veteran out there may be a proven mid level veterans war. More or stretched poor who did help me OK I would do that I know maybe not just a moment you have to do you know come up with a peg to put. I'm not trading justice poor's somebody out of bomb. Of equal role or or equal steel. I have got to get somebody better than justice and somebody who fields one remind one of my big me. Remember he sees easily scurrying easier and 21 yet and I don't I don't know if he's quite yet 21 I mean he's always going to be. I. I wouldn't trade him for another 34 type player deep concerns minor player to lead that's what justice do right well out I just he just. Well is is in the mean the other question is what's been interesting about this streak. Is that there been certain nights where your highest paid player Whiteside has been really you know dominant and there's another night's freeze and kind of an afterthought. I thought last night you know eighteen didn't he did a good job as a team defender last night. And that's that's a real positive light. He didn't put up crazy numbers last night but. But he each captures and Thompson off the offensive glass which is always one of the things he doing in San and he was his turn. Insurance those of Cleveland getting in the paint and they love the in the Payne obviously would LeBron inquiries so I thought he was good last night. The idea blue dogs are stretcher who's who shot duty in a million they got the rebounding blocked again and yeah I thought oh and they didn't that was a moment where he stood tall in the middle but it just yes as a deterrent I I thought that that was. That was just his being here is the actual shot blocking their. As as they prisons and as a sports sound Aaron and he did a good job of close at their words just assaults to the rim. You know he was he was good last night I thought into it doesn't always have to be the numbers. With him I mean he's had a really big numbers games where sometimes you know with a rebounding also I mean a lot of it. You know there are a lot of rebounds and he gets it then you are not contessa rebounds he's just hope he's right. You're right it's another reads all right Ed so the rebounding numbers to be little skewed sometimes he said lower rebounding total games but they've been warm pax four rebounds I thought last night. He did a really good job overall and again the heat did a great job overall. And of Dion Waiters doesn't care I mean that second half was brutal before you know it's one of the first half that second half with her. And and Nancy Judy he he is and you need to called the need to call glass and the last one out. And I say this stupid that we talk about dealer and does not he does not shoot two out of a game. I don't well he didn't last night. Found LC that come but he committed those gains that that he does head and shoot the speed out of the game hitting. Well he's he's the one that believes it like confusion and Colfer. Students can shoot. And adults lemon I don't think he's done day you know John Starks or anything. Two straight to you and and and you know and and her teammates Wednesday at zero they're open I wish I had and I thought I would not a waiter slowly I. A little island. Well we haven't seen from him is is it the videos that you used to see event in Cleveland. Where he would be sort of he would be calling for the ball and everybody was he ignoring him. I know it's not and they they have embrace him not clear clearly so but. A move we'll continue this conversation. Text comes in and this is worth mentioning that Dan Craig won the championship in the Dili last season now coaching side by side with Spoelstra. But they the real I mean again if you just look at this Rosser on paper. What they've created out of it is pretty remarkable it really is so I mean you know the week you know we talk about the struggles and and you look at the next Rosser. And even you know you still have parsing this roses and Miller and Carmelo. Move and look where the knicks are right now and look where the heat are. With a team where they basically just plug plug every hole with a dealing Claire and then those in our current guy who is. Sort of a journeyman veteran looking to find a foothold somewhere. And all those guys have gone and it really is tremendously rat pack and seven and it's taken. I. Okay. Mom. The injured and pulls everybody notebooks and yeah. It's all back here with Chris Perkins on 79 it's just. So we talk about the league MVP is yeah. For good candidates there. Who's seen MV PX. And in 6797467974. I'm going to be EE I don't you're gonna make the case war. I've got the cop out carries throughout and it's obvious answer the most obvious answer. Yardage no okay Spoelstra. A hole that's the cop out. Let me hands on space is price yeah. Yeah until we don't know who who has been OK dude we have no chance curtains. Yeah. Ice shelf now go to use that as a weapon to be a little don't know as a weapon when guys are as. It has stood. Am wrongly did this morning but it will take a playwright but it's got to be Spoelstra. Well I it's a cop out if we were well in people who I mean it blew it on the court I mean it could be Dan Craig he's going coach him for these guys. Against palm has got to be scroll. I it's going to be spoke. But if we're learning issues apply OK to limit shoes of clear. That is really really tough. It is it is a drug Richard James Johnson. I'm I'm good and honestly didn't. Johnson. Because those. Because of his role in the bench she's on the floor late in games he brings the ball low. He can do so many things for you and in that role coming off the bench. I would say James Johnson as a player. The checks are coming in waders hands down. It's tough it's really somebody hears that sixer Doug drug which is the MVP not even a debate. Somebody else sauce the always get these heat coach of the year not condone your deer and Craig played well look at it I can just does not get it then don't. This section comes into any way by going to Chicago would love the seem to play a faster paced ball movement spacing disallowed for a lot of these guys flourish. This thanks Rodney Magruder a buddy was an NBA player in November innocent until he's an MVP candidate out half the belief of and though there might be. Some of somebody or somebody doesn't act like this and they went on saying that. Maybe it doesn't have to be a player clay here is literally in the title track do you seek credit. And as those at the drama is liable person but I I. But I. All right I don't think that. It's not (%expletive) Hassey waiters peace when he came in the streak started. Yeah I mean during the streak and why it waiters made a ton of big shots. He did he do you. It is he the players regularly eat most responsible for this and that thirteen game win streak if you had to pick one player to see these are taken off at that time didn't he's. Are taken off on drug which is pretty great during our guys really knew. You know but again Whiteside had. Had some moments on this ourselves and Goran is easily the MVP he's the pace our offense is always puts pressure on the defense wares without charge wouldn't be nearly as good. In another chance comes and about done now dry it's not criticizing many hands down shut me up. Yeah it's. Is it that drug Jordan drugs or. Or James I. Dave Johnson does know the different rules he stool and things may be he's not as good a player as as drug a chore or rum or or Dion Waiters numbers why is there an end skill wise with blue. Just a Swiss army knife that he's become. Well yeah he can malleable knowing he is easy he's been in dial in terms of being able to garden as you mentioned guard multiple positions anyone from point guards to centers. Bring the ball low that hit a three on occasion right I just think that that tried it sets the tone for the scene he does he does I had it. It's there's some very very much justice Winslow is risks. It is very very tough thing to do and that's good breezy this seat in the south Carmel there's one guy. Right that's kind of what they've been about here right. Desolate I. I know prince and at this point here too little Carl whites it's gone and been the hottest team in 2017 is no point. Yeah that's true though it goes along with Dugard since trump has taken office. There's no luck with that but. That's I don't know this. Which. I don't give them to do. I don't that's it let's say at. Home. Kim Eric and see me in the MB PS team. It stitched on there and it's aids. Josh McRoberts wait nevermind. Ash could not a few of them really doesn't do call Bob the minute. There is. Let's give Tyler Johnson some credits and I mean Tyler wind changed the Johnson I mean that. Ellington is again been really big for them whether it's or starting or coming off the bench. A lot of production just to you know really taken off lately but Tyler and James Johnson together. In other Johnson Brothers or whatever it is they're calling themselves now they're very. Bruce Johnson. Al and a lot of people there on justice Winslow saying that the offenses flowed better since he's been out. I it's it's this team plays such such you hum. Unique. Such a unique brand of of a ball such good again the scarlet street key role lists thinking that it's it's tough to pick out one person. It's. It's it's it's almost impossible ghost. They need. They need so many things from so many different guys who win it is not as though you have LeBron who. You know he didn't he can pick up on the rebounding or he could pick up on the assists and he can do that every night. That they need to were three people to do do that clean every night there's not one guy who can do at all. Com. Magruder for sure this lesson was Rodney Leisle namely Magruder beginning when we're alone it's. It's and some contacts and can waiters and James Johnson possibly most improved players in the league. Who is gonna get most improved player this year may be. Nickel ideal kinship in Denver possibly I mean there's there's a lot of good candidates. I even a guy like in even though it just because I think the toughest thing to do in the NBA's go from start a superstar to mean to take that. It did go from like a borderline all star player to be coming in every night all star I think Isiah Thomas and it's in consideration for that too. He should be wary of her. Beat yet he's EC might be I'm charter who else is numb. Who else has made that that lead. Better or more prominently there lies and Isaiah. I'm I'm trying to think of guys that were on the all star team. Via email their bid if he his numbers and have jumped the most a lot of it is usage rate plays into that and that's a lot of times. What plays into The Who motioned for improved player is. With the heat it's it's more sort of like the most. In power player I think like they've been empowered James Johnson is to show sides of this game. Dan Namibia and Sean somewhere else and then also he improved his conditioning to such a degree there a couple stories today and one sentinel won in The Herald. About sort of all that went into his conditioning improvement which is who is significant. From yeah a yacht rich beyond this. I took a pro is probably a big time candidate for that to be Yokich also. Seth Curry has its mention my people from most improved player. Yeah he's right he was fourth and three point shooting left us on we we saw red and then you know and and then the heat mental game that. Yeah duke and true where he sees. Russian brother and dad are the media lately or Shia youths these crushing of pro and this assumes on time or when talking about how much better this team is without wade wasn't our record better last year with Dwyane anything any help in the playoffs. Live including playing Cleveland. True or unsure. True gaining get enough help in the in the second round series against Toronto I mean didn't play well in game seven. But then again not nobody really play well in game senate Tom. Dewayne Wickham Dewayne would be the closer. But Dwyane. Would be impeding progress. Because this routine looking to the younger players and blame as 35 years old. He would he would be. Possibly the best player on the court one of the one of the pretty arguably one of the best well definitely one of the best arguably the best. And definitely the best closer. But he would be impeding progress because these guys that you have no you have a chance to keep. Pretty much all the album for the next two or three years if you choose the Dwyane you wouldn't be too. If they wanna keep this in real they can do it. That they can do that they have in the though they'll have enough money when bosh contract comes off the books to do anything if they think that this is it seem that can seriously contend. They don't really have to do anything very strong guys so I mean any you know you can re sign. James Johnson and later this year available cap space and you can even exercise a team option. On Wayne Ellington and he can just bring this thing back and just make it draft pick I I don't think they'll do that because I think. I don't should do I I think Pat's always looking for sort of the bigger splash move. But it that they could bring this team back they have drug issue Whiteside under contract. And they have Richardson under contract and they have Winslow under contract Dominican bring this whole group the other. What do what does this seems really. It did you bring them back to let's say you let's say you just ahead 88 it's a roof this. It's just her Michael Jordan's old Austin of solace. If you added 88 rookie of a neat because of where you're gonna pick let's say a sudden the Mario Chalmers derail right type deal somewhere between there. Oh what is this team now or are they a fifty win team next year. And any threat to reach the Eastern Conference finals. Are there 1519 sing during the whole team came back to you Eddie draftees and and because of where you're gonna pay what sixteen whatever it is. Amendment say its like a drill right moral homers tight. And editing permission I'm not at a backcourt even if it's a plus stretch work a round. I don't know yet probably be looking for a stretch for hours think I mean you don't wanna draft for need but if you're bringing back the whole team and yet you would get your obvious need is a stretch for. What is their ceiling sensitive question. I have I would say. I would say closer if he wins. Close of fifty and is that where you wanna be next season with us in every take they have they have. Eighteen games left eleven album home. If they've been there are eleven wins from from being 500 they have thirty wins right now thirty and thirty pork. You win all eleven get home games you finish. No worse than 500. So if you if you do that this year is 48 wins good enough next year's fifty wins is that good enough improvement. I should be reaching for better than measure and your well. Well you should but it also depends on what's out there in and just you're not talking about. A free agent market that's gonna be all that you know impressive I mean Gordon Hayward know looks like he might be. You know one of the top players out there but again I don't see why he would leave Vuitton knuckle clippers coach in Boston if Boston wants in the Boston doesn't make a trade. For Paul George or Jimmy Butler even if they do. That you know he did date GE you could potentially at Hayward to the next day or so. I you know they're the best option made any I'm I'm getting. But more along the lines now on certain I think more along the lines is the best option is to bring as many guys back as possible. I think they do have something unique guy I think they've stumbled upon something here by having so many players that are interchangeable. And and they've just developed asylum played at the players are comfortable with so what then becomes a question that you asked. You know with the team be as hungry when more than guys locked up that's a good question but. But I think that you can you can do social what are we come to visit conclusion here. My most people it's excellence Ager on each. Yeah there are I don't regret that I have but I still like James Johnson but I think the drug issue is definitely had me a better statistical season he's some. That's about all I can sing god is James Johnson has been. So unique this team. But I do know we're drug which are you go to drug that is until smell explode back in my face. Look most valuable person a person close. Earlier I've gotten so low that it. Welcome back up seven I didn't check inside your company up for the 2007 Jeanne Fuller a Mercedes-Benz corporate run the five K is set for Thursday April 6 in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Plug on a Mercedes-Benz corporate run dot com to request the team registration packet and supported by yourself Florida were. Say he's Benz dealers and have meant to each installment back here with Chris Perkins. And we talked about this on the show before and this is sort of the bigger topic down here when the heat look like every position for the number one overall pick. But that's not happening now. For sure on this perk is right they had a big run in them. You know I love Sanford. Is right that's I I'm not I'm not glued shut up in the trees and just let just let you know if he's letting go bites. Still some interest because through talking about this this player alive mark health faults. As you close an NBA dressing wanna learn a little bit more about him on the two on Ryan fuel announcers mean serves guests lined the virtually since beyond convenient. Ready for the Seattle times Percy at Percy Allen Percy thanks for joining us. We are doing well aren't so Mitt just if you could explain it to somebody who wouldn't be able figure this out on the surface. You got the best player in college basketball are you merely some player with the biggest upside NBA scouts in the thanks so. But the team has chewed chewing sixteen and it's conference. How how does how does that happen and and add it. Easy I mean how how is he not elevated them worry lately is that roster just had bad. It's pressing question you know it has and it and it's something that. Still have to answer I'm sure. As he goes through that draft process it appears that the coaches circular. And after answer you know what too cute and mark typically comes to end here but you know option. If you're asking me you know as someone who saw almost all of the game without you go back there that. Yes it's basketball yet they are now looks Larry king and dictates so mics in terms of the outcome of the game it still all Libyans say it. You need other guys I mean it's usually you know I mean that's why this five guys up up there air. He did didn't have a lot of help you know I would secretariat he used serve cleaner than that but he did. You know he he would seem it's fantastic. But he was also a freshman. You were they eighteen year old freshman. And I think if you would ask him and he would be out about their children that. Part of that he. Part of where his game need to grow. Like a lot of young players is in the terms of leadership and so here you are in under gates' keynote here from Boston deeply. And if you will that delete and it gets really wasn't hit them. They weren't other guy that you were able to really do debt come in so they struggle. In that category all you DiMarco well you'll be able to deal with neat. To YouTube says no let's do. That's your shirt every every everybody up to hook and that figure who did it. Cursing you know what I dom got rid are real the story you have done unfolds. This week are real the story you have a not Chelsea plumb the food food and women's all time leading scorer there that there you don't. But I'm unfolds first bowl all right is he gonna play tonight Washington plays a USC in the first round of the pac twelve tournament in Vegas Washington is nine including one as either misled and dizzy don't play tonight and then tell us about the part of the story where he comes to Washington and and you know good and some Dicey things are going to be his teammates. Their first round and I know looked full they're kind of all alone. Sure how well so in terms of tonight he will not literary. You know basically you send us. All right need here 40. Look like three weeks now and let Gil misses us six game in the past eight you know outskirts sort of game here and that's. Too bad that's unfortunate because without him Washington will not planned. And without even when their seat and come to a close though. He won't play tonight now in terms of getting back to the beginning here are clearly when he. Committed to the rescue those. Well last year he would go into the scene here and at that time. What. And clearly you know brought renewed spirit Patrick class bird he no one expected. There's got to emerge and mark keeps Christian who really aren't so pretty nominal speed and that they did. Our freshmen and their could declare for the draft and then to give you stop take in the first round that crafty now. I think we all. New war been projected that they would be college players. But we didn't think. You know I don't think it assembly members offset by they would be as good as they were being. Credit to them you know I mean it's you know kudos to them they they did it but it's your mark so slow that. You know you're like you're get. Well. I'll care in her. Book that she asked if you do not want to know. The comes to watching them and basically the cupboard bare. Which are gonna Percy Allen from the Seattle times on the ice fall so the patent that comparison for months a ball. Seems to be Jason can you hear that a lot maybe somebody makes everybody else better. It clearly wants a ball's going to be a top five pick call so what would it would be your comparison to market health faults or who does resemble. Split that is Libya or Iraq. You know this heat I don't. There is really not be named they're really come to mine all the cut my hair you know like opera and being up there and wouldn't you know. I know maybe had you guys help me here Eddie. Maybe you can you know a couple of books since Jim you know you you really in the air and yet here you are these decries. He's long BC get into the cup yeah you know treaty. Pretty much at will. He's played decent outside shooter he's not much good that. Defender right now part how many freshmen are cuts I come without fear and played phenomenal passer so. I don't know perhaps. There is really not a name that really sort of jumped out at me I Koerner. Who are. We're blocked you can blizzard narc are market beat the other as they deal. Maybe Bradley deal may be a little bear here in ruins are back in the now now now I'm not brand and sympathy here are conducting people were very gave bears here you're. Not the greens up a play and not obviously you'll get some comparison because it's a completely fooled by. Somebody they somebody makes him much thanks Dan James Harden Persian is that good is that accurate. And now he doesn't go lawyers as well as game two you know and and again I saw a vehicle any unit here at the illustrates air. No you took a look at more mood there you know murdered more film. Not that type of player so it will be interesting to kind of see where he goes from here I wonder if he'll be a true point guard sector level. The boards here are part of his game you know. Spear like a lot of players who relates you'll need to improve. Part part of it yet but I've dubbed. A big part of it is chin and he took certain the click art scene and he. These he didn't really so much he willingness to put our whole Lotta beat them this year. Yeah we'll be the other name that's come up in some places on CNET it would be tough to these explosive an athlete as Westbrook. By need to know in Britain and the number not not not quite like that but but not always seen always had guys. Who are not traditional and SharePoint cards played point guard at the next level. I mean do because we've we've seen this transition now where you got a bunch hybrid guards were playing in the wind. So I mean you know why you know he didn't I mean. Well yeah he's he's Odyssey is a lot taller than Isiah I know you know Isaiah from that part of it then then the country to come. Obviously in and and from Washington. Fight but I don't think anybody thought Isiah will be scoring 29 points in many case can't be there when it when he came out on so. It blue looks so first you know I mean and did the projections are all the he's going to be the number one overall. A pick how do you think you mentioned that leadership or something that was thrust upon them. This season and maybe wasn't ready for it you think you'll be ready for the pressure of being number one overall pick I saw you recently Sarah do the best player ever. He Harry com. It would be extreme to see where we go you here who can truly. As you guys know that there it's all about the fit. Found that some time that you could have been phenomenal player but because he's the right program that you're not you know they they could pick that aren't so. I think that's going to be. Interesting you know I wonder if all the little people that create warrior warrior though packet could execute something though. So I can do I do. No lead him to wait I know am I know that killed more art that he admitted to their. That like it's you know he's he he he did not give their Cold War. Iranian war for the glory then like he is going to be Gartner cool remote back but he's not a big party guy. He's he's you know he's. A little sheltered you know some eat you know you remember cook for his mom in the end its sister in a little bit legal briefs were growing up and so you know he's got a guy named groups like that you cannot keep speaks sort of you know. You know my period goal on the care and didn't beat the trigger a I think there's no. He's all about that people are scared. What Korda beat extreme to me go appeared to be all about bringing that I'd I'd be targeted toward to pick locks and contributor period content you know Barack spared. And here how many Pavkovic Adrienne border war expire are concluding that here I do wonder like there's you really until I win you know currency. It because they'll go back to your very first question came up I'm sorry you'll have to be Q do you ordered law criminal record for Clinton ask. How regard dagger only when Maya and he now he's gonna have to Internet I'm coming here. I Percy real quick I'm not and tell Bloomberg took the women's slow player she looks. The all time women's scoring record and bush EF 5857. And that name and she came in 1953 year old or whatever it was like many Latin player how good she does she have a WNBA future. I'll see you. Phenomenal it's fantastic. And yet he does have a bit weak and your future surely he'll probably beat the number two pick you know in that draft I am I here and that he or yacht from. And she won't go I number one but if you haven't seen this seat is war appeared here aren't. 5859. You know we didn't didn't win the Connecticut lottery order or anything like that Burke here's. Yeah out due to basically put in the work here is a phenomenal shooter. But now middle school work. He I can't talk erupts you know he's not I think you know if you watched. Women backed by and are in if you look at where some proper comparison lady Diana Taurasi you know that you're somebody who who can do to light it up from not disputing beat by creed seek different they interviewer compare that I got a lot that's compared to ambulance he blow. Play eight million steadily gained played 28 games hard you know I've got herky jerky you couldn't read your follicles. Go to the line a lack that background why I didn't sort of thing that the school you know sort being worked because that's the other thing here they YouTube free throw line a lot your outburst so you know it up with. Trump really. Bernama played it it's pretty cool you know really XPQ as you're there to leave school working fairly men's college basketball. Well he would do a good look look at the two leading Gordon like I looked and I that you're here at act the same school and so. And they've got to be bitter about or import. Relationship as well to your compliment tribute. There is historic serial. So more I've developed I tell you don't you do the more Alter. I really aren't they can now. I don't know yet you know outlook actually it's C brokered some incredible records you know for late in spite that becomes you all aren't scoring leader board. NCAA. Division one basketball and that could clear and yeah I saw that that you simply can't. Let part look I've seen some amazing did not already out and go off for the U five. You know I mean you until you actually come making it but I like that lady. Or fifty employees and I get to hear real seemed to write it in any real game I mean you still lose you was pretty darn darn cool. Percy thanks for taking the time we appreciate it. But for your car. I only come back I was trying to point to you while we're talking a person there it is not that the only guerrilla video I saw you guys I just saw this silly and he was he came home goods like belly flopped in the in the loading yeah but yeah yeah. Yeah outrun Clinton should Percy Malone don't know how many should I guess those she's a funny moment though. I in this Tyson's and Alonso destroyed Fultz in their only meeting well UCLA destroyed then I wish I'd seen that game and I. I have so many questions about mark Dell to especially got good personnel like how can make this dude your number one. I'd gone global. Actually it and it's crazy day it. And he did both its thanks Dana I don't care at least let me I don't know Larry is. Nine and 21 and you're the number one to play how does out of you don't go non controlling one and they had the best NBA prospect in the world. Not just in college basketball or America in the world. On their team than you win nine including look. He's going to be an Olympic well I don't he's going to be an Olympic penalty is an overnight and gets you know who's not is how screwed on right. There will have to suffer for oil it's clear that I sent an attitude. The. OK okay mall. It is not about how this autumn all things are heating up the Coral Springs auto mall over 2000 and honesty is good Gypsies and pre owned vehicles. Even so only fact here with the Gary Jackson and Chris Byrd. The first of three must on the show together and police only. The news and we should commemorate the occasion somehow. With cupcakes with sick parents are here wal mart's giving those are given what three million unclear why did the threatening. I will get together for cupcakes on Sunday and then. So the sense come came in about Isiah Thomas Hussein whose second best player and in the Eastern Conference. And somebody text in the eyes and it is the last and only 455. Forgery the 55 and only eight. In defensive real plus minus which is set to ESPN. Made up and tracks. It made up of bush well I mean. How do you. It's a it's a basement somewhere a show. The cup coming out of luck and still do not reflect what is supposed to do is. I was trying to find a definition on it but then this is a description for this result is not a build it isn't the site's robots. So I guess we can't. Look it up a real plus minus is it daisies also create been based on a hundred possessions. Here's here's what real plus minuses. It says is the Mets are isolating you plus minus impacting each NBA player by adjusting for the effects of each team in opposing player and coach. The rpm models sister more than 230000. Possessions each NBC's the tease apart be real plus minus effects attributable to each player. Employing techniques similar to those used by science scientific researches researches on many mile the effects of numerous variables the same time. Your eyes and a half hours over. OK I didn't leaving the last night I had coming up let's let my. Formula I and so today's an inverted but yes they are basically according to this that now look I'm not gonna. I eight I believe in miniature XOK I think a lot of them are really useful and and perhaps this one as useful as well. I just will say that according to this metric. LeBron James is 88 the lead. In defense in defense of real platoon in not in real plus minus c.'s easy eightieth only. Which ties him with their minutes. From now I prepare for looking at shooting percentage against and I know that doesn't reflect team defense. And it doesn't show your helping the way you need to be helping but a couple things that send out to me about shooting percentage against the season. I Dion Waiters holding the guy he's guarding. 21 of the best shooting percentages in the league among two guards about six point slower than what that guy ordinarily shoots him James Johnson has also been great in that area he's the top flight forward in a holding. Other players guarding too low shooting percentage so that Tunisia has more merit than that formula because I actually know what their computing. Bright bright actually know what they're monitoring as to this religious thorough bunch of numbers. Right and into a big. Or or who are in the Ryder Cup not always rubbish well. I would sit someone so it looks accurate so without that's why don't dismiss it entirely because of an am number one Maria go there. Who I mean the eye test Algeria bears' terrific offender all of Utah's numbers tell you he's terrific defender their number to join mongering. Most know who got a OK okay that's an up Dewayne Dow administered the San Antonio he's become sort of their defensive. Fulcrum on the inside because Gasol doesn't play any defense anymore. And then and you vote it was worth. And yet other guys like Paul Millsap in the top ten so Andy Andre Jordan seventeenth so there are some of these guys that broke there. But anyway that they they have Isiah. That they have there and they have Isiah lasts in the entire week so I'm. So the second best player in only thing and I am routes are easier to buy it. In the east and east Indies socially suits that somebody is somebody who went down to eight somebody went eight deep not bad list LeBron. Greek freak John Wall Paul George I read her ring. Com. Jimmy Butler DeMar DeRozan and then Isiah Thomas. Let's. But my only point is Isiah and I'm not knocking down as a he he's not number two. But then yeah I did I do believe if you put Isaiah in the top five. I could probably could convince me of that. Oh he that they wouldn't see it blossomed in the playoff series this year examine this group hasn't done that yet and is it says is that how are he as says it is the second best he has this team in the two spot over Toronto. And that's going I don't know. I don't think that. That that means that he's not second best. It means it he's got good players around him also right. But he's got a cast around him that's all so old enough to maintain the second spot in the east. That's all it means to me. Right I mean. How are it was generally strong season sued for one out in on you look at point guards and Eastern Conference is really for guys. That have been talked about the most retiree you wall. Larry. Knight and Isaiah and gloriously wells any of them in the last two months he has been. Yes I mean might be eaten we have it's it's intercede as Goran gonna go down as one of the he's very under appreciated I think when when the league observers talk about that position. I mean he got the all in the third team all NBA in 2013 fourteen. But has never. May all star team this year again 4 point guards picture Eastern Conference and all of them deserving. Yet but again more on season if you look if you extrapolate the last two months. He certainly has all star worthy of all your consideration. No no question to be shooting threes in the low forty's all year which is what he's done this. Remarkable one thing you can't overlook about the seat back court beyond the fact that there are making shots. And winning. What the waiters and Drudge are able do Suarez. Penetrating and creating for others what do people think least open shot winner would get into the lane. Dish out to open teammates that's such a huge piece that shouldn't be overlooked for their success their ability to break down defenders and find open shooters and that's why. Babbitt's now it's finally doing what they he'd envisioned when they traded form on that Sunday in July. When they were frantically trying to recover from Wade's ways lost when they signed that day James Johnson and Willie Reid. And completed deal for Derrick Williams won the under the radar things was acquiring Luke Babbitt for second round trip from New Orleans and this was their vision. Being able to have shooters around Whiteside and guys who could penetrate and pitch out to Babineaux we've seen. That would now on a streak of I think 37 for first 76. But some on worldly three point numbers over the last month. Yet and that's easily out leniency Babbitt put the ball on the floor and and you know shots taken and everything like that which. To Mears and there's a real sign of progress because he's not. Just settling for three of if somebody close out on whom he knows how to put the ball on the floor a couple of times and and and get into the pain or at least say doesn't take a different shot he's not. Just shooting three I mean that's what he does as primarily what he does but he he sold a little bit of diversity watches will surprise them Brett. They've shown faith in them you know that they need decision also not to go after Terrence Jones that decision. Not to bring an endurance Holland Germany basically stayed. Winn batted as a stretch for you know he's gonna play the first eight minutes of the first half. And the first eight minutes of the third quarter and that's usually going to be it I mean and then gone back home a couple of times and James Johnson was Alex. Then went back to limit typically they've just gotten him you know those fifteen or sixteen minutes. And he needs it takes five or six threes well isn't there. He does I think his defense has exceeded their expectations obviously he's not a great defender but he's not been an embarrassing to plenary Spoelstra was mentioned the last couple weeks. They've really been impressed with how he's improved defensively so the fact he's been competitive defensively. Allows them to play him. And not really be the huge disadvantage on either end of the floor but all the pieces of just fits so well bright idea and you look at even Magruder is improvement from a guy. Who shooting in the mid authorities. Up until mid January to now a guy over the last two months who shooting mid forties on threes just the growth in each individual. Over the stretch of 2124. Games has been. It just in incredible more so because it's not just a couple of guys it's virtually everyone on the roster has raised their game over these two much how often do you see an entire NBA team. Without a top ten quality NBA player where everyone raises their game so appreciable is we've seen over the last two months it's been remarkable. Now the number area as they move forward and me and even talked about this I think yesterday. Our does he have good players or players who are having a good year. I think I have to be considered good players but largely because the heat has helped mold them into good players buy egg getting them into the best. Physical conditions of their lives. And be maximizing their skills. James Johnson is perfect example the second part of that. He told me that in Toronto Dwane Casey never allowed him to be a point forward he was never able dribble the ball up court never was allowed to get the team into offense. He said he never complained about it but he always knew we had that ability. What joint Casey saw it was a 276. Pounder rugged power forward who wasn't the ideal guy to be getting them into offense especially an F Kyle Lowry. But here you take off forty pounds you get that's around 238. Johnson during pickup games in August and September the arena. Was dishing the ball to teammates he told me Spoelstra any assistant coaches noticed that and they said look we have something to work with here. We can actually allowed James Johnson to get instant offense in the works during games. We can expand that set you know that packaged so I think that's allowed these players to become better players. You have to credit them in large part and you have to credit the coaching staff industry conditions after pushing them. To get this one you also have to credit the other players are allowing. The guys who. Go outside of their normal boxes like. Because as a point guard. He's given a lot of ups waiters and he's given a lot of it up to James Johnson and yet it seems like if he stayed in the flow more so than he did last season. When he gave a lot of it up to wade. Then the you know Dwyane was sort of I think hyper fixated on and you know that pick and roll situation with with her son that they can dive. With Hasan and Goran a lot of times we just be sort of standing in the corner. You don't see Bora and it deactivated. When James Johnson's handling the ball when Dion Waiters is accountable it seems like. Gore is ready to make the next attacks so you know. We saw the wade try to sing get better as the year went on last year but it never look. Like this has looked. This season Shia and that's why you have to think long and hard about keeping waiters leave it to cost you 1415 million year just because of how well these two guys worked together. And how they're able to create open shots for others. The point you're just making Ethan about guys willing. To do things maybe they haven't necessarily been asked to do were or have been comfortable with before Tyler Johnson told the of course you would rather be playing off the ball. But he said look what I needed to do here sometimes get the team into offense I've had to develop my point guard skills he says it's not like I'm the only one who wants to play off the ball. He says gore and sometimes except playing off the ball because he knows they're going to be times where waiters brings the ball up. Or James Johnson does so Tyler was making the point our willingness. To not necessarily do what we prefer to do. And the you know completely being team and being selfless has also been another thing that's helped fuel the strong. All right when we come back we'll read upstage you want some of these national moves have gone on which teams help themselves which teams. Have struggled so far and now we'll get her to talk a little more soccer to be right second seven and it's a.
