Respect for Heat? Not so much. Paul George, "We don't feel this team is far is better than us."

Tuesday December 10, 2013 11:53 MiamiHEAT
Spoelstra: "We're used to a lot of the rhetoric that comes with our games. We're trying to build on our last two games."
Tuesday December 10, 2013 11:54 EthanJSkolnick
Spoelstra won't engage Pacers, just keeps talking about process, getting better.

Chris Bosh says Wade did not participate in shootaround

Chris Bosh on the Pacers putting so much emphasis on this game: "They're at the point where they want it now."
Tuesday December 10, 2013 11:57 EthanJSkolnick
Spo: "Our approach for tonight is can we improve on what we've done the last 2 games."
Tuesday December 10, 2013 11:58 MiamiHEAT
Chris Bosh: "They are chomping at the bit. They want the playoffs to start now... We want to be a different team 3 months from now."
Tuesday December 10, 2013 11:58 EthanJSkolnick
Bosh: "No, it's not a championship game. It's like the 20th game of the season. It's tough to play like there's no tomorrow when there is."
Tuesday December 10, 2013 12:00 EthanJSkolnick
When did Chris Bosh circle this game on calendar? "Yesterday."
Tuesday December 10, 2013 12:00 EthanJSkolnick
The Pacers are like the kids screaming at their parents to watch them in playground. The Heat are checking their cellphones.
Tuesday December 10, 2013 12:02 EthanJSkolnick
Chris Bosh: "We don't like them much either. But we are at a point now where we have to build."

Dwyane Wade didn't participate in the Heat's shootaround this morning, but Erik Spoelstra said everyone was available for tonight's game.
Tuesday December 10, 2013 12:21 JoeGoodmanJr
Pacers' Paul George plays lack-of-respect card in advance of Heat-Pacers. Bosh says that's just NBA life.
Tuesday December 10, 2013 12:21 IraHeatBeat
Spoelstra was coy this morning about tonight's lineup, which would be interesting, but Spoelstra is coy before the Bobcats, too.
Tuesday December 10, 2013 12:22 JoeGoodmanJr
Bosh: "It's not a championship game. It's like the 20th game of the season. It's tough to play like there's no tomorrow when there is."
Tuesday December 10, 2013 12:22 IraHeatBeat
The Heat is downplaying this game to the point of being ridiculous. Very out of character for this team. Just something to keep in mind.
Tuesday December 10, 2013 12:25 JoeGoodmanJr
If this game really doesn't mean much to Heat, and Wade's not right yet, then he should sit. Makes a statement in itself.

It's just a level of gamesmanship you don't normally see out of the Heat. They care … but they're trying to act like they don't. @Nick_0099

I asked Spoelstra if the Pacers were better this year: "That remains to be seen. It's a long season."
Tuesday December 10, 2013 12:52 JoeGoodmanJr
Spoelstra added that the Pacers are "playing great basketball" and "you have to respect that."
Tuesday December 10, 2013 12:52 JoeGoodmanJr
Heat fans currently are defending the Heat's projection of a nonchalant attitude toward the Pacers. #sports

There's a notion in Indianapolis that if the Pacers win the head-to-head series against the Heat, George will take the MVP from LeBron.
Tuesday December 10, 2013 1:55 JoeGoodmanJr
More on Paul George's search for respect, as well as debate over East No. 1 seed, and Granger next time teams meet?
Tuesday December 10, 2013 2:08 IraHeatBeat
From shootaround: After cameras left, Bosh REALLY started mocking idea of this being a big game: "I'm going to take the Super Bowl of naps."
