Kyle Lowry and Udonis Haslem sounded off after the Miami Heat lost Game 4 of the 2023 NBA Finals to the Denver Nuggets on June 9.

Both Haslem and Lowry clapped back at the critics who are saying there’s too much of a talent gap between the Heat and Nuggets.

“It’s disrespectful for people to say that because you can’t just trick your way into the Finals. It takes talent,” Haslem told Chris Haynes of Bleacher Report. “I don’t know what the f— they’re talking about with that s—. Yes, we have some undrafted players, but they’re also talented players and we’ve made it this far. We just have to limit our mistakes. They got 20 points off our f—ing [14] turnovers. That s— can’t happen. But I believe in this team just like I did on those teams when we had D-Wade and LeBron [James]. I have no doubt we’ll respond accordingly.”

Added Lowry: “People are always going to run their mouths. It’s like a–holes, everybody’s got one. “We’ve been in this situation the entire playoffs where people have counted us out and said we’re an undrafted team, but we are in the NBA Finals for a damn reason. I don’t think we listen to the noise because, at the end of the day, a team is 15 deep.”

The Heat are down 3-1 to the Nuggets. Only one team in NBA history has won the Finals after trailing 3-1. That was the 2016 Cleveland Cavaliers team led by former Heat superstar LeBron James.

“We’ve been down this road before. If there’s anybody that can go to Denver and get a win, it’s us,” Haslem said. “You allow yourself to be frustrated tonight. But when you wake up, that shit is over and we focus on Game 5. A closeout game is the hardest game to win. We’ll be up for the challenge.”
