The next time Miami Heat fans see Mike Miller draining three pointers, he’ll be doing it for the Memphis Grizzlies, according to reports from USA Today and ESPN.com.
The NBA is more reliant on the 3-pointer than ever. Entering Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday night, there had already been more 3-pointers made (1,171) and taken (3,414) than in any postseason in league history, and both were well ahead of the numbers posted last season.
The Miami Heat have been constructed to utilize the slashing and post-up ability of the Big Three to create wide open shots on the outside for the team’s shooters. One of the biggest problems for the Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals though has been those shooters missing shots.
How do you build upon a nearly perfect night? That’s the question the Miami Heat face in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference playoffs against the Milwaukee Bucks Tuesday night at the AmericanAirlines Arena.
