In response to Fierce34's comment:
The Heat lost to the Wiz tonight.
Lebron, Wade, and Bosh all got 20 or more points tonight. Lebron even had a triple-double, his first this season.
So how did the Wiz beat the Heat?
Let's start by looking at the score.
Wiz 105, Heat 101.
Heat once again allowed the opponent to score over a 100.
The Wiz were led by Jordan Crawford's 22 points. Seraphin also had 16 points.
Ray was guarding Crawford in the 4th qtr. Crawford had 7 points in that 4th qtr.
Seraphin got 8 of his 16 points in the 4th.
That's 15 of the 23 4th qtr. Wiz points.
It's not surprising that Jordan Crawford got his way with Ray Allen, we all know Ray's not a good defender.
But how did a guy like Seraphin get all those points in the 4th qtr?
Simple. The Heat don't have a rim protector or a big that can block shots. The Heat only had 2 blocks against the Wiz and all of them came from Lebron.
So it's very clear now, if you want to beat the Heat, control the paint!
Good analysis! The C's néed Gortat!
