When the Heat lose to bad teams, that’s the Heat. . . ? – Denver Post

Q: Well, that was pretty pathetic. It’s been going all year, where the Heat just can’t get into an offensive rhythm. Then their defense gives points they shouldn’t. Overstepped, turnovers, missed shots. I blame the whole team on this one, the coach and everyone. Including Bam Adebayo. We’re just a bad team. So as a fan I just have to accept this as fact – FL

A: There is no sugar coating. There simply isn’t. It’s never been the most talented team, even when they’ve made the Eastern Conference Finals in two of the past three seasons. But they almost always played with desperation and, to some degree, at least in times of crisis, with precision. Now both are missing and the results are almost as expected. These are the games that bad teams lose. So that’s the heat. . .

Q: They settled for two horrible threes. The craze for the three is sickening. -Jon.

A: I don’t know about the three “horrible”. I know Jimmy Butler didn’t touch the ball on that last possession, even with an offensive rebound. As for Bam Adebayo, there was no reason not to get back on the rim, also increasing the chances of free throws. Instead, miss, miss, lose.

Q: There’s absolutely no chemistry when Bam Adebayo or Jimmy Butler aren’t on the ground. So many possessions are wasted by a lack of half-court passes. Even when they pass, it’s a step and a half from where he should be. And then the rebound. The bench needs a complete overhaul. – Drew.

A: They might have thought Victor Oladipo would be the overhaul. And maybe in time it could happen. But I agree right now that when Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo are off the pitch, especially when both are off the pitch, it’s heartbreaking. And it’s not like Max Strus is constantly punching or Duncan Robinson is punching. Additionally, there is a significant lack of depth in the power rotation, with Dewayne Dedmon so inconsistent, possibly due to his foot problem. The reality is that if the Heat don’t get into the luxury tax, they aren’t able to simply bring in more depth without trading some of the current depth.
