    Miami Heat: Routing Indiana Pacers, TJ Warren in Playoff Prelude

    Miami Heat: Routing Indiana Pacers, TJ Warren in Playoff Prelude

    This is the team Erik Spoelstra wanted to see.
    The Miami Heat played a dominant second half, getting contributions from Jimmy Butler, Derrick Jones Jr, Duncan Robinson and more in a big win that likely secures a 4th or 5th seed and serves as a prelude to an upcoming playoff series with the Indiana Pacers. 
    Notable: they held bubble star TJ Warren in check, and Goran Dragic was effective in a surprise start. 
    Hosts Ethan, Alex, Alf and Greg analyze it all.

    Miami Heat: Point Tyler Herro, plus Butler update, McCullough interview

    Miami Heat: Point Tyler Herro, plus Butler update, McCullough interview

    A packed episode, in which Ethan, Alex and Greg start with injury and quarantine updates regarding Jimmy Butler, Goran Dragic and Kendrick Nunn -- and then move to Tyler Herro's eye-opening work as a point guard in Saturday's loss to Phoenix.
    Is Herro the answer there? Will he continue to start? Where will Nunn play? And how do the Heat handle the last three seeding games, two against the Indiana Pacers?
    Then: Ethan interviews Heat executive VP Michael McCullough about the team's voting initiative, as well as its marketing work during Bubble season.

    #Floors Yours Postgame: Milwaukee Bucks 130, Miami Heat 116

    Whoa, what happened? After the Miami Heat -- without Jimmy Butler and Goran Dragic rolled to a 73-56 lead -- they collapsed in the second half against Giannis, Khris Middleton and the Bucks.
    Ethan, Greg, Alex and Alf appear on YouTube for #FloorsYours, to decide how much this means -- and mostly, whether it's time to move Tyler Herro ahead of Kendrick Nunn.

    Miami Heat: Steve Jones Jr. on strategy, matchups (Duncan, DHOs, Butler, zone, Bucks)

They discuss freeing Duncan Robinson, the dribble handoff game with Bam Adebayo and Kelly Olynyk, the need for Jimmy Butler's jumpshot (or not), the Erik Spoelstra zone defense deployment and more. And they dig into all the matchups in the Eastern Conference. 
    Plus, Ethan makes a bad bet.

    Miami Heat: No Butler, No Issue vs. Celtics

    Even without Jimmy Butler, who was a late scratch with a sore ankle, the Miami Heat beat the Boston Celtics to go to 2-1.
    Ethan, Alf and Greg go through some of the reasons: an aggressive Bam Adebayo, Kelly Olynyk's playmaking, Goran Dragic's scoring, the overall defense (with some zone) and more. Plus, updates on Dragic's late ankle injury and some quotes from the post-game pressers.
