03:21 PM ET 12.07 | The Miami Heat's losses to the Washington Wizards and New York Knicks this week raise questions about whether they can find enough desire to repeat as NBA champions. This is a challenge that forward Chris Bosh said the team has been struggling with all season. "Yes, it's impossible to have that same fire, that same hunger," Bosh said. "The hunger changes, but we don't have the same motivation and we have to find different motivations now. And I think that motiviation is always just trying to be the best and sometimes you got to be knocked down a few times in order to get that back."

Knicks shot their eyes out!!! Ralphie would be proud. That being said Spolestra needs to take a look at his small ball lineup. The game would have been closer if one of the other big three scored. So the lost is part motivation/hustle/ part pure shooting clinic by the Knicks

Why is it that hard to find "different motivations"?? The Lakers of a few years ago had a three peat.

Exactly. Did they get that ONE ring and now there's nothing to play for? Maybe have a conversation with Magic, Michael or Kobe. Something sure kept/keeps them hungry.
