    Official Site of the Heat: Pistons 104 - HEAT 111 Game Recap

    The Miami HEAT defeated the Detroit Pistons 111-104 Wednesday night at AmericanAirlines Arena. Kelly Olynyk led the way for the HEAT with 25 points and 13 rebounds.

    1. The K.O. Show

    From the very beginning, Kelly Olynyk was just in a different gear. The 7-footer got going in a hurry with 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting in the first quarter, including a perfect 3-of-3 from deep.

    Thanks to all those treys, this nifty shot-fake and jam worked to perfection early in the third quarter:

    While Olynyk fared quite well going right at Eric Moreland throughout the third, his best play of the night would come in crunch time.

    Fansided: Miami Heat: Who actually won the Jimmy Butler sign and trade?

    The Miami Heat have always been a team that has had sort of a magic trick or magician's allure to them. Specifically, this reference highlights the ability of the Heat to always be able to pull a rabbit out of their hat at the most opportune times.

    Perhaps this phenomenon is more of a Pat Riley thing than the Miami Heat as a whole, but nevertheless, he has done it countless times as the leader of this Heat franchise. While there are quite a few great examples that could be used here, Pat Riley was at the forefront of the deal that brought Shaquille O'Neal to the Heat en route to the franchise's first title.

    Hot Hot Hoops: Will salary cap rules force Heat to cut Robinson, Maten?

    The Miami Heat's summer league season ended Saturday, with a 101-100 overtime loss to the New Orleans Pelicans. Duncan Robinson played very well, scoring 26 points including an acrobatic play to beat the third-quarter buzzer. Yante Maten added 17 points and nine rebounds. The Heat held Tyler Herro and Kendrick Nunn out of the game for rest.

    CBS Miami: Heat Knocking On Door Of No. 8 Spot In The East

    MIAMI (Sports Direct Inc.) -The Miami Heat just got done sweeping a home-and-home set from the Eastern Conference-leading Cleveland Cavaliers and are knocking on the door of the No. 8 spot in the East.

    The Charlotte Hornets, who visit the Heat on Wednesday, are just beginning to play well again and are trying to drag themselves back into the race for a postseason spot.

    Miami breezed past a Cavaliers team without LeBron James and Kyrie Irving 120-92 on Saturday but backed that win up with a 106-98 triumph at Cleveland on Monday in which the two All-Stars both played heavy minutes.

    Fansided: Miami Heat: Tyler Herro voted best shooter of the class by his peers

    We have come to that point in the year and offseason where the actual season is right around the corner. With the new look of the Miami Heat, Heat Faithful can hardly wait to see the latest incarnation of the team at work. There are however still things to get to before that time comes, here is one of them.

    With the NBA draft occurring a short while ago, the time has apparently also come for what is dubbed the "Rookie Survey". Put together by NBA.com, NBA.com writer John Schuhmann was tasked with expounding upon the results.

    Fansided: Miami Heat: Can Tyler Herro end Heat rookie drought?

    Now, I know some Miami Heat fans may be thinking "Rookie of the Year is an irrelevant award" or "The award doesn't always go to the best player" as they consider Tyler Herro's impending rookie season.

    Both are valid points.

    However, when it comes to most rookies in Miami, the young bucks haven't always produced in ways that analysts, fans, and the league as a whole, had anticipated.

    The Miami Heat drafted University of Kentucky guard, Tyler Herro, with the 13th pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. Take a peak at some of Herro's Summer League highlights below.

    Fansided: Miami Heat Hot Topics: Olynyk out for Canada, Justise shot sustainable?

    In today's edition of Miami Heat Hot Topics, we'll catch up on the stories we've written so far this past week here at All U Can Heat. Among our topics, Kelly Olynyk will miss the World Cup for Team Canada thanks to a bone bruise in his knee, we look at Justise Winslow's shooting sustainability, and we hit some more bold predictions and FiveThirtyEight's own forecast for the Heat.

    Without further ado, let's get caught up on the happenings of the Miami Heat.

    While Team USA has lost countless stars and supporting players to defection, the Miami Heat has lost its two candidates for the FIBA World Cup in less fortunate ways.

    Hot Hot Hoops: Could Heat find next diamond in rough with two-way spots?

    With the re-signing of Udonis Haslem, the Miami Heat appear set with their 15-player roster -- at least until a possible trade. But the Heat still have two open roster spots for "two-way contracts," in which players can spend up to 45 days with their NBA team and the rest of the season with that team's G League affiliate.

    And Miami has found veritable diamonds in the rough in the past. Derrick Jones Jr. first joined the Heat on a two-way contract during the 2017-18 season. The next season, he signed a standard contract with Miami and played in 60 games, 14 of which he started.

    Fansided: Miami Heat: Should we expect Justise Winslow to maintain 3-point shot?

    Justise Winslow is headed into what could be a huge season for him as a member of the Miami Heat. This is from a production perspective, from an opportunity perspective, and from a position defining perspective.

    Production-wise, he should have ample opportunity to continue to contribute on the offensive end, hopefully expanding upon his 12.6 points per game average from last season. From an opportunity perspective, he is one of the best most experienced players on this Miami Heat team, based on meaningful minutes played in the Miami Heat system.

    From a position defining perspective, it all piggybacks off of what Winslow was able to accomplish last year.

    Fansided: Miami Heat: Which Meyers Leonard will show up this season?

    The Miami Heat are what some would call a team in flux. While they aren't a complete representation of being in flux, there are still certain parts and/or aspects of the team that are as fluid as they come.

    In example and with the addition of Jimmy Butler, not only will they have to figure out how to get the most out of him and his abilities, but the rest of the team also has to figure out the best way to play beside, around, and off of him. Another aspect that represents this fluidity has everything to do with the trading of he who is not to be named to Portland.

    Fansided: Miami Heat: Has Miami been smart in trading their first-round picks?

    If you look at the draft history of the Miami Heat, you will notice that there are many first-round picks missing. Since the arrival of the great Pat Riley, the Heat have traded 10 of their first-round picks.

    Since 1995, the Miami Heat have had 13 first-round picks. Can you imagine that?

    Out of 24 years, in almost half of those years, the team didn't have their first-round picks. You can even add one more to that when you remember that one of the picks was seemingly wasted on Michael Beasley.

    At the time of these trades, we as fans may have thought that we were completely sacrificing our future for just one player, but we now understand that multiple future draft-picks don't hold the same value as an established star.

    Fansided: Miami Heat: FiveThirtyEight predicts big improvement for Heat

    ESPN and the major sportsbooks have been less than impressed with the 2019-20 outlook for the Miami Heat, but at least one major prediction outlet has a rosier view of their future.

    FiveThirtyEight's CARMELO projection model expects the Heat to go 44-38 next season with a +1.1 net rating. In comparison with how they actually performed last season, they went 39-43 with a -.6 net rating last season, so this would be a marked improvement of five wins and a +1.7 net rating bump.

    This record would place them fifth in the Eastern Conference behind the Philadelphia 76ers, Milwaukee Bucks, Boston Celtics and the Toronto Raptors.
