    If our core of Kyrie-Dion-TT-Zeller keeps improving at the rate they have been, with 2 more core pieces I truly believe this team will be better than the LeBron-era Cavs by 2014-2015.

    Nba really needs to do something about players setting up out of bounds then running into the restricted area

    I don't think most of the complaints about Kyrie are the about the off offensive night. I am telling you his EFFORT on D was abysmal. I went back and watched again.

    Everyone should go back and watch the last 5 min and just watch Kyrie off the ball on D, it was awful. Our leader and all star just can't play that way.

    Did someone really say they might skip the bulls game because of tonight's game? We came back from 20 down to take an 8 point lead against the best team in the league on their court on the 2nd night of a back to back. We had our chance to win, Kyrie tried to win it while being defended by the best win defender in the league and failed. It's okay to fail sometimes. Nobody comes through every time in those situations. Kyrie has proven many times in his short career that he learns from his failures. I haven't heard the post game quotes, but it wouldn't surprise me at all to hear him take the blame for the loss and to be determined to do better next time. The last time that happened we bounced back from a loss to the Pistons to beat the Thunder. Kyrie had 13 points in the last 3 minutes of that one.

    I like our chances against the Bulls and I like our chances March 20th when we face the heat again. This team has made huge strides this year, tonight was another step in that process.

    Bulls will be a good measurement of the teams improvement since they have been quite consistent at killing us.

    Byron needs to go to Dion in these late game situations when Kyrie has been struggling all game, this was the second time he went to Kyrie over Dion when Dion was hot and Kyrie was playing poorly. Plus it would be a huge confidence boost for DW (not that he needs one).

    Kyrie played well the 2nd half until the last couple of minutes.

    I would just skip the Bulls game because we get blown off the fucking court every time we play them. Tonight's game has nothing to do with it.

    Bad shot selection in crunch time, as always. But this time it was against the Heat defense, so it didn't work.

    Let's hope we see some actual play-calling next year, like we see with Poppovich and the Spurs right now.

    The problem down the stretch was defense..and some bad shots.
    When Wade came around the pick Dion came over top but didn't run hard after him.
    The BIGGER ISSUE was Gee trying to prevent a dump off from Wade to his man instead of coming into the lane and forcing DW to pass the ball off.
