Miami Heat: A Lucky Win

Last game was another close one against the Houston Rockets scoring 113-110.  This game was like going on a roller coaster ride, one minute we had a nice comfortable lead only for it to go down then back up between the 2nd and 4th quarter. It started out with Bosh on fire throughout the first quarter then going a little quiet during the third and finally having one of the best saves in the fourth. Wade miss an important free throw and Bosh got that pivotal rebound that made it a Heat ball.

The Miami Heat might have thought they had it in the bag during the 1st half where at one point we had a sixteen point lead, but that all went downhill (literally). James Harden and Chandler Parsons manage to change the tune by getting through the cracks in Miami’s defense. They caught up to the Heat’s 16 point lead at one point by not missing their lay-ups and most of all getting those rebounds with the help of Omer Asik. The game obviously changed rhythm from one minute to the next. It went from Haslem to Bosh working on guarding Harden. Our biggest problem the whole game again seems to be our defense. No other way around it. The Heat’s score was in trouble during end of second quarter and throughout the third quarter, could it have been Bosh going quiet during this time? It’s evident that he brings consistency and a great advantage to the team when he plays center. Still it wasn’t him. It was a group effort.

The Heat need to get more aggressive and work on using their rotations more effectively especially when matching up against opponents; there was a point in the third quarter when the ball was constantly being taken by Rockets with various unanswered shots. It is true that the man of the hour in this game was Lebron James. He might have been quiet during his first half but second half came around and the dragon woke up.  The man truly showed why he is MVP and one of our greatest assets.  With as much as thirty points in the second half, Lebron James saved their collective butts from a possible beat down from the Houston Rockets. That and the Heat getting extremely lucky with some of the Rockets blunders…. the Jeremy Lin airball? The Maurice Morris loose ball and foul? Their screw-ups and him turning up the Heat (in every sense) deviated the team from another possible loss.

If anything is clear from this game is that the Heat need to work on their perimeter defense. It was here where the Rockets manage to make most of their shots. I am pretty sure Spoelstra is working on bettering those rotations and  avoid these possible slip-ups for next game with the L.A. Clippers.

2012 NBA Champions soon to be back

MIAMI HEAT… CAN’T BE BEAT !

It’s been a while since my last Heat post but doesn’t mean I missed any minute of our boys bringing the championship back home. Our win was not given to us but truly earned by every single one of our players. No one can deny that this was huge for the ‘Big 3’ who were constantly scrutinized by both the media and fans all over the world. Who can forget all the drama and haterade Mr. Lebron James had to endure for leaving his 7 year team the Cleveland Cavaliers? Still after much sweat and perseverance and a lot of dusting his shoulder off, Lebron James got his FIRST ring.  Still looking back at the finals, it was not just about the ‘Big 3’ but about the whole team playing their parts. Players like Battier and Miller showed their black and red pride especially in the last final games where they stepped up to the plate. Miller who I constantly see as the ‘man made of glass’ (injuries galore!) showed true sportsmanship in playing with everything he’s got even after Spoelstra tried pulling him out. Again the victory was earned by the whole team from the coaches to every single player who were able to tuned out the negativity and go on to become the 2012 Miami Heat Champions. I am excited to see where they will takes us this year with new players like Rashard Lewis and Ray Allen (soooooo excited to see this come together).  Training camp starts soon and then come October …. On to the next ring: LET’S GO HEAT!
