Ive been thinking that MIA might sputter a bit if they played glorified pick-up ball. So did Scores and More on the SBNation main site: "... just look at the offensive sets, the Heat looked ... well, they looked a lot like they did last year. They halfheartedly ran through their sets for about 10 seconds until someone got an isolation, at which point everyone stood around and watched. Once that stopped working, Erik Spoelstra went to his "give the ball to the star and have everyone clear out" offense, which got them back in the game, but isn't the way you win consistently.
Yes, Miami made it a game. But they did so by rolling out the following lineup late in the third quarter:LeBron James, Udonis Haslem, Zydrunas Ilgauskas, James Jones & Eddie House. You know what that looks like? That looks like the Cleveland Cavaliers from 2006-2010. We know how that ended up working out"
