Can any team stop them? Their offense and defense are top-notch. Lebron and Wade are playing with a chip on their shoulder. I know 66-0 is too far-fetched but can they have the highest winning percentage of all time?
I love their pace. I have no idea why it took them a year to figure out they needed to run and get out in transition. But better late than never, I guess.
The defense is going to look bad because of all of the extra possessions, but, with this particular group, I see them almost becoming too reliant on their offense and losing their defensive identity from last season. No way Boston should have been anywhere close tonight.
The Heat's problem is the same as a year ago: No depth. People always tend to downplay the role players, but the Heat are showing 3 good-to-great players and dleague scrubs aren't going to win you a ring. This game all three of them had good games, and they still needed Cole to score 20 pts to put the Celts away. The good news for them though is unlike last season, they actually have some semi-decent players now like Battier, Haslem and apparently Cole who can allow Lebron and Wade to play less than 40 a game and preserve their legs (health). I have no idea why they didn't amnesty Mike Miller, they really could have used more depth.
