It’s nights like last night’s loss to New Orleans (the losses to Denver, Brooklyn, or Boston can be used in this scenario, too) that make you wonder just how content LeBron James and the Miami Heat are with losing these types of games.
Miami Heat basketball is supposed to be earth-shattering, gravity-defying fun. The past week has consisted of neither of those traits the Heat have become synonymous with, explaining why the team has lost five of its past six games, four of those losses coming by seven points or less.
Wrote this over at Dime Magazine. There’s been a great deal of criticism lately about the Miami Heat and the overall lack of effort they’ve exerted and shown this season.
But what if I told you that it’s on a far better pace than last year when they finished the season with a franchise record 66 wins? That it’s the deepest Miami Heat team yet and that its best players are averaging career-lows in minutes?
Most importantly, at 27-10, that it only has room to grow.
