• Josh Richardson’s (shoulder) MRI returned negative and he is a game-time decision for Sunday’s Game 7 tilt against the Hornets.

    Richardson is a guy the Heat simply can’t do without because he’s the only one with a shot in hell at defending Kemba Walker.  Spo balked at playing him big minutes (26) in Game 6 because he had started to get a little loose with the ball lately, but it’s hard to defend any lineup that doesn’t have J-Rich shadowing Kemba all over the court.  Playoff adjustments like these are the toughest thing in coaching and Spo will have to put his trust in a rookie selected in the second round, and to Spo’s credit he played virtually 18 minutes in a row to end Game 6.  If Richardson’s shoulder isn’t falling off he will play.
