Getting Hot In Miami

The Heat aren't reacting too well to being down 2-0, which is just fine by me.

After Dwyane Wade, Heat not posing a threat - BostonHerald.com

After saying his team "relied on me too much" in Game 1, when Miami blew a 14-point lead in an 85-76 loss, Wade spoke with even greater concern after Tuesday’s 106-77 debacle.

With second-leading scorer Michael Beasley having almost as many turnovers (seven) as made shots (nine) while struggling on both ends of the floor, Wade said he is running out of patience and excuses for the No. 2 overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft.

"I’m tired of answering questions about Beas not doing it," Wade said in offering both harsh criticism and hope for the second-year forward. "He has to continue to play. It’s going to click one day. Hopefully, it’s Game 3. He has the ability to make us a tough team to play. It’s on Michael to do that."

Whereas the Celtics have won with balanced offense — seven players are averaging between nine and 16.5 points this series — Miami has countered with the blame game.

Coach Erik Spoelstra has expressed concerns about the team’s fragile mentality and toughness. Beasley and slumping center Jermaine O’Neal have said some frustrations have boiled over with flat-out arguing on the court.
