Just hours after Miami Heat superstar LeBron James said the team’s defense was playing like *expletive*; the Heat put together a solid all-around performance Tuesday night to blow out the Milwaukee Bucks, 118-95.
There’s not a lot of mystery about what the Miami Heat rotation will look like this season. Such is life when basically an entire team from one season stays together, particularly when that team was good enough to win its second straight NBA championship.
Coming into the deciding Game 7 of the 2013 NBA Finals, everyone knew what to expect from LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, but it was the role players who would help swing the game for the Heat.
The Miami Heat forced Game 7 with the San Antonio Spurs thanks to a remarkable comeback for the ages in Game 6. It’s only after the stats were processed did the unlikely rally really get put in perspective.
The Miami Heat have run out of mulligans and face the reality of a second high-profile collapse in the NBA Finals if the team can’t right the ship in Game 6 against the San Antonio Spurs.
The greatest players in sports history always found a way to rally themselves and their team when the odds were stacked against them. For LeBron James, after a horrid Game 3 performance, that time is now.
After mauling the San Antonio Spurs in Game 2 of the 2013 NBA Finals, the Miami Heat will look to take a 2-1 lead in the series Tuesday night during Game 3 at the AT&T Center in San Antonio.
The San Antonio Spurs came into Game 2 looking to take a commanding lead over the Miami Heat in the 2013 NBA Finals. By the time the final buzzer sounded, the Spurs bore witness to the power of the fully operational battle station that is the Heat.
Over the last two years, not having Dwyane Wade in the lineup for a playoff game would have been cause for concern for the Miami Heat. This year, a much-deeper Heat squad had a message for the injured Wade, don’t worry, we’ll take care of this.
