West Coast NY Fan
It was there tonight.
The difference is the Heat had stellar defensive efficiency last season, and it remained so during the playoffs.
This year they're playing guys like Allen and Reshard Lewis who are going to cause the defense to regress although provide an added offensive boost.
Combine that with not playing Joel Anthony and the defense has plummeted.
So I don't think that it's a temporary thing.
Lol 14 games, roughly 1/8 of the season passed, and you're using that to predict a teams capabilities on one end of the floor. LOL
but you're a Knicks fan, and you thought u won an NBA championship in November.
LETS GO HEAT
they play down to their opponents but when they need to they can turn it up. example is tonight, when heat turned up their intensity in 2nd half and nets scored less than 30 points.
It'll be back.
I love how Heat fans just embrace the team they root for not giving max effort out there. No wonder these guys wanted to play in Miami
I don't think the heat really give a ****. They'll start going 100% with about 20 games left in the regular season
Number 3 Is The Key!
