Why the Heat Won't Win


Just like the Cavs, the Heat will have the most regular season wins, but will lose in the playoffs.

The strength of the team lies in its balanced and relentless scoring attack from Bosh, Wade and James.  However, the team’s weakness is its lack of inside strength.

The key to beating the Heat in playoffs is having a plethora of big men.  First, the big men need to take away James’ and Wade’s drives to the basket – literally pummeling them on every drive. Without going to the basket, James and Wade are just average jump shooters. For example, they shoot only 33% and 30% from 3, respectively. Second, the big men need to control both boards so as to cut down on the Heat’s fast breaks.

Who has the firepower upfront?  The Celts have Shaq, Perkins, KG, Jermaine O’Neil and Big Baby.   That’s certainly enough.  Orlando will need to beef up, but Howard has demonstrated that he’s up to his part of the task. The Lakers have Bynum, Artest, Odom and Gasol. They will certainly get one bruiser before the playoffs.

How do the Wiz stack up against the Heat?  Not well. While Arenas and Howard may make some games interesting, the Wiz won’t be able to stop the Heat when it matters.  And there is no way that they can beat them in an up tempo game.  When the Heat come to town, the Wiz should dust off Booker, Armstrong and Seraphin and run for cover.
