PREVIOUSLY, THE MIAMI HEAT...lost 100-87 at home to Oklahoma City last night. The Heat have cooled off after a 6-1 start, losing at home to Cleveland last week before earning their seventh win of the year with a one-point home victory over New Jersey. That 6-1 start was fueled by excellent team defense. Miami allowed 97.8 points per 100 possessions over the first seven games. They've failed to meet that standard in of the games of their current 1-2 stretch. Oklahoma City scored 100 in 86 possessions, New Jersey scored 80 in 81, and Cleveland scored 111 in 94.
Consider this an open thread for all pre-game, in-game, and post-game (but pre-recap) thoughts.
