Even tho we lost to the heat, we played very good Defense and took control of the ball in the 2nd half with only 4 turnovers. We need to grind It out and push harder. I believe in this team. Our offense seems clicking better. They finally realize they should play howard more.

I still believe in this team too. We need to make a better effort on getting dwight the ball. We were pretty predictable with our passes to him.

I can't put any faith into this team if we can't [expletive]ing win games. Positives don't mean [expletive] anymore in a loss, it doesn't carry over to next games.

I don't know about the offense clicking. High P&R was forcing Nash too far out and they had trouble feeding Howard lob passes. If it wasn't for Kobe ball to close the gap in the 4th, it could have easily been a double digit loss.

Team speed (or lack thereof), be it on defense or offense, will kill them in the end...Gasol did well tonight, but they have to move him and get two athletic/younger players to infuse them with some energy.

we are facing the heat. a championship team. I think there are 29 teams we can past by.

we have pointed out positives in games in the past. but we havent seem to capitalize on them and string some wins together. as some say, there isnt any positives in loses since you lost. Still believe in this team though.

Nash couldn't get his man off him and we ran the high P&R WAY TOO MUCH cause it wasn't working. We should've pounding it the whole game but they were fronting Dwight and taking away passing lanes. This is when you take a time out and draw up plays as a coach for the bigs. When something is clearly not working, you change it. But no we continued to run high P&R with a team that switches on every pick and roll and plays a small line up. We could've won and we should've. If we didnt give up stupid TO's in the first and second quarter we would've been up early. I'm tired of watching these mistakes and us lose.

I wouldn't call it "very good defense".

We didn't give up like 115 which is an improvement though.

We need wins though. Every loss is another nail in the coffin.

The offense is still bad. If Miami didn't miss almost every open shot they were taking, we would have lost by double-digits easily. We turned the ball over 16 or 17 times in the first half. Miami was trapping Nash 30 feet from the rim with Norris Cole and Joel Anthony, absolutely destroying our P&R's.

Miami didn't hit a three up until LeBron's three in the third or fourth quarter, and hit just one more after that. Ray Allen didn't even touch the net or rim on one of his attempts...wide open. I've never seen that in my life.

With all that, Miami still managed to score 99 points on 48% FG.

We didn't play defense, prayed for Kobe to save us on offense in the 4th, turned the ball over 16 times in the first half, we only have ONE GUY on this team who wants to take over a game (Howard and Nash will not do it), and Ron thinks he's 20 years old when he's driving to the rim.

There's little to take from this game. Were we happy when we lost to the Spurs 84-82? That happened when we were 3-5.

A loss is a loss, doesn't matter how they played. At this point every loss equals 2 wins needed.

I don't know why anyone thought the Lakers could beat the Heat. I still have them missing the playoffs. Just too big of a pit dug, and too big of a mountain to climb with this team and this coaching staff.

"Moral victory" is the new most hated word, replacing "imminent".
