The Miami Heat have nothing to worry about.
There will always be room for improvement throughout the season but there should be no shame or criticisms coming from either of their two losses.
They lost both games while on the road and both games came against good teams. But neither the New York Knicks or Memphis Grizzlies are known throughout the NBA as teams that can shoot the lights out, yet against this Heat team they both did.
In the Knicks home opener they made 19 three pointers. In the game against Memphis the Grizzlies made 14 three pointers.
Not to mention the fact that Ray Allen and LeBron James combined to make zero free throws on five attempts. Or that Grizzlies’ reserve Wayne Ellington scored a career-high 25 points making seven three pointers.
So far this season the Heat’s two worst games have been on the same night that their two opponents had their best games of the season.
So despite the fact that James settled for jump shots and was not very successful in the post, or that Dwyane Wade shot 20 percent from the field, the Heat will be perfectly fine and still don’t have enough flaws to prevent a repeat.
At the end of the day this team has not been built for regular season dominance but is made for the long haul and made to be extremely hard to defeat four times in a seven game series. When this team’s stars are motivated they become unstoppable and we have yet to see them play that way this season.
