Heat Lose A Heartbreaker, Again

In what is becoming a recurring trend, the Heat lost to a top-tier team in the final seconds of the game.

With just under 9 minutes to go in the 3rd quarter, the Miami Heat were up 24 points versus the Orlando Magic. Orlando proceeded to go on a 40-9 run, eventually beating the Heat 99-96.  At least a member of the “big 3” took the final shot, right? Wrong.  Chris Bosh, a 27% 3-point shooter, got the ball for the final shot. Inevitably, he threw up a brick and they only got another shot because Mike Miller made a brilliant play to get the offensive board and kick the ball out to LeBron, who also shot up a brick (while posing as if the ball was going to be nothing but net.)

 Miami scored 63 points in the first half and went into the break with an 18 point lead.  In the 2nd half, they scored a mere 33 points and coughed up the game all together.  The Heat’s last 7 losses have come to Boston, Chicago (twice), New York (twice), Atlanta and Orlando.  That looks like a list of teams who will make up the Eastern Conference Playoffs.  The Heat need to get their game on point if they are going to be relevant, regardless of the acquisition of the timeless Mike Bibby.
