Heat running out of gas?!?

Lately the Miami Heat has lost some games, the way they have lost games have been rather erratic since they start with the Heat playing good ball and getting on top quite fast. There are some elements of the Heat basketball that have been lacking lately.

Most of their losses have started from Miami domating 1/2Qtr to a 10pt deep on the 4th.

I wonder if the energy level slums after halftime. After winning a bunch of games by +10 pts seems that the team has been overburned. Defense have collapse and eventually the offensive strategy has been holding out of attacking the basket.

From a team that used to ‘live’ on the foul line, they have settle for bunch of long range shots that has not come through during the Chicago and Orlando game and even the Nets game when they went from 28 to a mere >5 pts diferential vs Philly.

The bench has been inexistent and even some odd moves like sticking to a rotation regardless if the player is having a good game. Although some players have actually seen some action like ex-3pt champ Jones, is only because Mike Miller keeps geting injured. Rio is also very erratic and just been on a down spiral on 3pt shooting % and even Free Throws.

So my hope is for the coach to get the rotation more involved on these weak games and get the starts more time out, and work on getting the third team up for the playoff. I think a Bosh driven 3rd team could do a good game.

Having fun with clouds

Cloudsurfin

Today I had another great dream, also a double dream but the first one was the one that I enjoy the most.

Imagine going just above the clouds, and dropping out of the plane and do some “cloud surfing”. Literally grabing a board and brush the clouds as a rope tie you to a plane.

Of course is literaly impossible, but in my dream you could stay hovering above the clouds just like it was some kind of platform.

Having the experience of floating on this massive cloud that could be the size of a state, miles and miles of ‘cloud land’. Being able to surf the cloud was a great experience and just floating on top of the cloud a very interesting.

Now, I know this in reality is impossible, for starter, one would freeze if it was at that elevation. Not to mention the lack of oxygen and other issues like sun radiation, and maybe just the speed that a plane will move to will be too much for a human body.

So about my dream, I really enjoyed the surfing, we actually wanted to start a business about getting people to try cloud surfing. I start advertising it and many people were interested into trying cloud surfing. From then on my dream became more blury and can’t remember what else happened, but I do remember I went back to do more surfing. It was great.

 

NBA today – Heat resurging

After a 2 lost games, and somehow cool down on the way Heat energy level, they had survived the battle against Hawks, and they need to go back at it in Indiana.

Heat was playing a gigantic defense, but ever since, they had slow down on their attack. They did show up a bit on the third quarter against the Hawks on their comeback, but in reality I think they are going for clos games rather than take over games.

Bosh is being much better recognized now that he is back for a 2-0 mini run with the big 3 in their place. The thought of “Heat are small” and very low firepower in the middle. Bosh had some issues on offense and the Heat struggle, he was gone and the Heat struggle. So we can basically come to the conclusion Bosh is being the X-factor here.

In reality is really about defense, if more defense is injected, then the better the Heat will perform.

On a side note, the MVP race is a bit odd, they are having some MVP people stucked with a pin on that ladder as opposed to a week by week basis.

LeBron James and Dwight is one example, even with loosing and poor games on the week, they still have them on the upper echelon. While other relative good stars like Derrick Rose which only lost one game, was on the 6th. That sad, of course it seems the approach doesn’t work like that.

I will still wish this organization was smoother.

On the Dunk ladder, was the WTF when LBJ 360 dunk, the first 360 this season was not included on the Top dunk of the week. Instead it was a Griffin somewhat average dunk.

LeBron James steals the ball and throws down a beautiful dunk.
