Will this work for the Cs against the Heat?

Disclaimer: My basketball knowledge is probably as good as Sarah Palin's in Geography.

Coming into the Heat series, two advantages we thought the C's had (and still do, at least on paper) were at the point and the bigs. Now, why don't we pound the ball to JO in the paint, with Ray on the strong side perimeter, Pierce on the perimeter at the top of the key, KG on the weak side mid-range, Rondo out on the weak side too and let JO go to work against BigZ or Joel Anthony by backing them down into the paint? This way Rondo's defender can't really help. And neither can Ray's or PP's since they are both on the strong side. Of course I'm assuming JO is a good post up player and is better than Anthony or BigZ (I don't know. Like I said, I'm a novice). If Rondo's defender does go to help, RR can slash to the hoop since the defender will have to take his eyes off of him to go help. And the way I have seen them sticking to Ray in the two games, I don't think Ray's defender can ever come down to help (if he does, he might mostly get whipped by Spoelstra in the next timeout). This sounds too simple and basic a play for some one to not run. Am I missing something here?

Please enlighten me!
