Miami Heat: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

I would say the game against the Philadelphia 76ers was the ugly… in a game where we had a thirty point lead for almost the whole first half the game and then come within a five point lead, there’s a problem. While I love my team, I will say this is one of the moments that showed consistency is a big problem for us. We cannot let our guard down especially with a team like 76ers that despite the disgusting lead we had on them in their own home court they never stopped playing hard. Either that or we got complacent and literally dropped the ball.

The game against the Phoenix Suns I would say is the bad. Even though we did beat the very talented old timers Steve Nash and Grant Hill, the game showed that when some of our key players like Wade are quiet, it shows. He really has gained the title of the closer – we depend on him a lot to take control and bring the W. Another very noticeable problem we may have here and there is rebounding. Getting those rebounds on both sides is key. It means we get the ball. It means that’s another possessions for us and another chance to get some points on the scoreboard. This is not just the job of the Big 3… this include players on our bench like Haslem and Battier. We also got a chance to see Dexter Pittman be in the starting line up with Joel Anthony sitting down due to an injury. Without him and Mike Miller, the whole bench has some shoes to fill in when it comes to defending (Anthony) and making those 3 point shots (Miller). The obvious player this year who has been getting more rebounds and making more shots in my eyes is definitely  Chris Bosh. The man said he knew he had to be more aggressive, that he had to get in the glass more and assume the position of being the center when need be and in my opinion he has. Maybe not to perfection but enough to save us in a couple of games (not speaking about the Bulls game). Again Lebron and Wade cannot do it alone. Like any player they will have off games too. Look at the Chicago Bulls, they annihilated us over there WITHOUT their star player. Still I must give credit where credit is due and that is that Lebron is learning to carry him team when it comes to the nitty gritty moments.

Game against Orlando Magic … the good. Showed that even though this team has been one of the few to beat us twice this season, we can still come back with them. Now the question is, do we only have an advantage when we are at home court?  I really hope not. It’s evident that ever since the All Star game we haven’t been playing the same. Is it that the Heat know they got the talent and are just pacing themselves? Ehhh wishful thinking. We got the Pistons tonight and then our biggest contenders from the West and noticeably one of the best teams right now… Oklahoma Thunder.

Let’s hope our Miami Heat has their defense on point and our offense ready to go.
